Water on floor; problem was occassional, but today was a ''flow''. Coming from left-side back corner and noticable on hot water wash cycle; swithced to warm cycle, went to drip. Suspect whatever the mixing...


Upon further investigation (opening up the front panel & top) could tell it was the injector valve (between the mixing valve and tub inlet). You would think after 21-years they would have designed a more robust solution!! Quick trip to the parts store, back together and working fine.

Thanks for letting me vent.

Tub partially fills with water when not in use.


The water inlet(mixing) valve is leaking. The only solution other than turning faucets off when not in use is to replace the mixing valve. The valve is located on the machine where the hot and cold hoses connect.

How do you replace the mixing valve on a kenmore series 80


Water Inlet (Mixing) Valve Replacement Procedure
  1. Safety first. Unplug the machine.
  2. Shut off the water supply valve.
  3. Place a bucket or pan under the water inlet valve to catch residual water from the fill hoses.
  4. Remove the fill hoses from the water inlet valve then drain the residual water into the bucket or pan.
  5. Remove the screws holding the console at the back of the machine. On some models, the screws are hidden under the console's removable end caps. To remove, pull the top of the end caps to the front of the machine. On some models, the console is secured to the machine by clips under the front corners of the console. Use a putty knife and insert it's blade under the front corners of the console then push it until the clips are released.
  6. Lift the console then flip it towards the back of the machine.
  7. Disconnect the lid switch wiring harness connector from the body of the machine.
  8. Lift the lid, grab the front rim of the cabinet, not the tub, then rock the cabinet to the front of the machine and pull it all the way.
  9. Remove the screws holding the water inlet valve to the back of the machine.
  10. Move the clamp holding the inlet hose to the water inlet valve to remove it.
  11. Install the new water inlet valve and reassemble the cabinet and the console in reverse of the disassembly steps given above.
Feel free to ask for further assistance if necessary.

Water dripping into the tub when washer is not in use


You are right, it is called the water inlet valve assembly. I will attach a photo for reference. You can try to clean the small metal screens inside the opening on the valve, but the problem is most likely in the solenoids. They can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter and checking for continuity. A lack of continuity means a bad solenoid and the water inlet valve will need replaced. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

F&P GWL11 mixed water will not cascade over the clothing in the tub; it runs in with just enough force to drain into outer liner, never reaching the laundry. I was thinking of finding a tube to match...


Turn water off. Disconnect water supply. Look into the hole where the water goes in. There should be a screen in both inlets. Clean screens. After re-connecting water supply. Make sure both hot and cold are on all the way. If this does not fix problem, take mixing valve apart. If there were no screens you most likely have something blocking the flow inside the mixing valve.

Hi there my hotpoint washing machinewma 54 fills up without the machine being on


Hello. your fill valve is faulty and needs to be replaced.

here is how the fill valve is supposed to work:
The fill valve--which is about the size of a coffee cup--is sometimes also called a "water inlet valve." It controls the entry of hot and cold water into the machine. The valve has three major components:


  • A hot-water solenoid

  • A cold-water solenoid

  • A mixing valve body

The inlet valve has three hoses connected to it, for :

  • The hot water from the house

  • The cold water from the house

  • The water directed into the washing machine's inner tub (either hot or cold, or both) to fill it with water

When electricity flows to one or both solenoids, water flows through the valve into the washing machine's inner tub. When the electricity stops, the water also stops.

Leak when water is filling up with water


First thing to check is the discharge pump inlet hose from underneath the tub to the pump. This frequently vibrates loose enough to allow water to leak out as tub water level increases. Also, this hose may have rubbed against something for some time and developed a hole at the rub point, resulting in a leak. If you are good with a tire patch, you might be able to seal the hole and avoid the cost of a new hose. Make sure the hose is insulated from or pulled away from the rub point to avoid a recurrence of the leak later.

The next most frequent leak point is at the mixing valve at the water inlet where the hot and cold water is channeled into the tub fill. Loose connections or a cracked valve housing will leak water.

Washer leaks water internally when loading warm water


both hot and cold water connections are located on a solenoid valve exactly where the water inlet hoses connect this may be the cause if these are ok then the problem may be a hole in the tub or a DAMAGED TUB SEAL

Washer is overfilling


If your dishwasher leaks, check these:
Main tub seal
Door gasket or seal
Water-inlet valve
Hoses

Main tub seal
Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the:

1. Lower rack
2. Spray arm
3. Spray arm support
4. Wash/drain impellers


Then pry the seal out of its housing and replace it.


Door gasket or seal
Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak. 


Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses
Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.
