Behind the lower access panel, there is a service manual that will tell you the steps to remove the outer shell.
If it is not there, let me know, and I will give you step-by-steps.
Once the top and shell are off - turn off the water and disconnect the hoses.
2 Screws hold it in place.
Very easy - should take you about an hour.

Thanks

    in the front corners there are clips.

    you will need a putty knive to pop the top.

    Stick in the putty knife on the side, in the corner. push in and pull up.

    it may take some time if you have never done it before.

    I will try and find a video or pictures online for better detail for you.

    OK - thats the cold water inlet valve.

    Shut off the water and remove all the hoses.

    The hose clamps will come off by squeezing the tabs together with a pliers.

    Then remove the wire harness.

    2 tabbed prongs hold the valve in place. push them in and move the valve in the slot until it frees up.

    Thats it.

Cold water leaks into tub when machine is off


Try to identify roughly the area the leak is coming from. This will eleminate some of the following

Hose Connections
Check the rubber washers or replace if the hoses are leaking at the WATER INLET valve

Door Seal
This is a common place for leaks. Carefully check by partially pulling seal inside out and check for punctures, pens, pencils... Additionaly if the door is not closing properly it may need a door adjustment. This can easily be done by loosening the hinge bolts on the front panel, adjusting and retighten. The seal is also known to get lightly snagged by zippers or rub by heavy items when close are being removed. This tends to cause the seal to get damaged at the six o'clock position. This is sometimes hardly noticeable but if it is leaking from the bottom of the door replace door seal.

Water Inlet Valve
If the hose connections are good to the water inlet valve check that water is not leaking from the valve itself it is replace inlet water valve

Drain Pump
Check the drain pump housing and all hose connections. The drain pump is behind the lower panel, behind the back panel, and sometimes removal of the front panel. Hoses can be tightened. If hoses or pump housing is leaking replace pump .

Outer Drum
The outer drum is 2 halves bolted together some washers have a seal between others do not. If the washer is leaking between the seems disassembly of the washer will be necessary. The top panel, console, front panel, door seal, struts. 9696d86e-1b8b-4b2e-af2c-6f3a3ae921dc.jpg

Turned off the hot water to fix a leaking tap. now the tap has no hot or cold water and the hot water tank valve is leaking?


It sounds like two problems.
Problem 1) Clog inside faucet or clog inside pipes at faucet
Remove supply tubes leading to faucet and see if problem is inside pipes or inside faucet.
My bet is clog inside faucet.

If you have galvanized pipe that meets copper pipe, this can be trouble spot.
Article on clogged water pipes at Inspectapedia:
http://www.inspectapedia.com/water/Water_Pipe_Clog_Repair_Guide.htm

Article on clogged pipes:
http://www.waterheaterrescue.com/pages/WHRpages/English/Troubleshooting/Tanklets/backflushing.html

Problem 2) Water heater leak ... you say tank valve is leaking? Is that cold-water shut-off valve? Or tank drain valve? Or TP valve?

If cold water shut-off is leaking, then replace shut off.

If tank drain valve is leaking, then check if plastic valve is cracked. If drain valve is cracked, then replace with a brass valve from Home Depot. If plastic valve breaks off, then use hammer and screwdriver to gently chip out the broken plastic valve. New valve threads need teflon tape to seal pipe. If valve is just dripping, then put garden-hose cap over end of valve and screw down tight.

If TP valve is leaking, then replace with same temperature and pressure rating.
New TP valve threads need teflon tape to seal pipe.

Problem 3) If pressure is low all over house:
Buy pressure gauge at hardware store that screws onto hose connection.

Test pressure on outdoor spigot.
Open faucet and check if pressure drops. This says if problem is inside pipes that enter house.

Test pressure on water heater drain valve.
This says if pressure problem is before -or- after water heater.

If problem is before the water heater, then shut-off valve located on cold water line is suspect.
If problem is after water heater, it could be in hot water outflow pipe on top of water heater, or a nearby elbow.

Remove hot water line leading from water heater and check pressure. This says if problem is where hot water leaves tank.
Read articles above about clogs inside water lines.

Hi I have an AEGL16850 washer dryer and it is filling up with water when it is not in use. It is outside warranty and on a Scottish Island so getting and engineer to visit is near impossible. Help!


Inside of the washer there are water valves. These valves are provided with power to open and allow water in, then power is release to have them closed. The water valve is in the machine and connects the external water lines to the internal water lines. Chances are the valves are leaking and not stopping the water flow. If you remove the rear panel of the machine you can access the valves.

I have the valve for the water now how do i change it


If you are talking about replacing the water inlet valve, follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG washer and turn off water supply.
2. Disconnect water inlet hoses from the back of the washer.
3. Remove the washer top panel by removing the three screws in the back of the washer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then lift off.
4. The inlet valve will be located in the left-rear of the washer (as viewed from the front). Remove the dispenser hose and electrical connections from the water inlet valve, followed by the mounting screw(s). The valve should easily come out of the washer. NOTE: Accessing the valve from the rear or left side of the washer access easier.
5. Install new valve in the reverse order of the steps I provided. Make sure you get the dispenser hose connected correctly so it does not leak AND make sure the electrical connections are not crossed (they should be marked HOT or COLD - if not, label them BEFORE removing.)
6. Connect water supply lines making sure they are not crossed. If you have the original manufacturer's hoses, they will be marked RED for hot and BLUE for COLD. It's also printed on the back of the washer.

Read through the instructions and let me know if you have any questions. I hope this answers your question.

Whirlpool Duet washing machine - no cold water comes in when I put it on cold cycle


Check the tap is turned on
if not fix
turn off taps, check the lint screen inside the hose end (tap connector end) is not blocked
if not fix
check cable connections on cold water solenoid valve inside rear of case
if not fix
replace cold water solenoid.

cold water solenoid valve fails more often than hot, is used on every cycle so bnurns out first.
unplug washer and turn off water before checking cables or replacing solenoid.


solenoid is cheap, common to many washers local parts guy will have one that fits even if it is labelled ge frigidaire kenmore

Admiral Leaking


Possibly rinsing with cold water, washing with hot.
Check inlet valves for leaks, especially cold (rinse)
Lift the top panel by inserting a flat blade approx 4" from each side at the front to release clips, then top will hinge backwards.
You can see the valves at the rear behind the drum..
You can run the machine with top lifted to see any more leaks.
Also remove front panel via 2 small screws to gain better view.

Kenmore 110.92274100 Rear Panel Access - Cold Water Problem


the top panel comes off via 2 screws that hold control panel on
once this done yuo can lift the whole hob and front and side panel to expose the workings
the cold water valve has a filter inside the water entry so to check this just take off the hose to the machine and look inside hole
if this is ok then you may need to replace water inlet valves
i presume you have high pressure water if not buy valve that is for low water pressure
