You start out by taking the screws out of the console. These screws should be located under the snap off caps on either side of the console. Pop off these caps (front of the console, on either side) and you will see the two screws in the bottom corners. After removing these screws, pull the entire dash unit lightly towards you, the swing the console up and over the back of the unit. You will see 2 gold colored clips on either side of the unit top. Remove these clips by placing a screwdriver in the front most area (area closest to you) and just pop the up, the swing them out of the retainers in rear of the machine. Unhook the set of wiring that goes down into the unit (lid switch wiring). Swing the cabinet at a 45 degree angle towards you, and then lift the hole cabinet off. You will have total access to the interior of the unit. Installation is the same as removal, just be sure you get the front of the cabinet under the lip in front, and the rear of the cabinet gets placed back in the small notches when you fold it back. Let me know if you need further help. Good Luck!!!!!

Cold water rinse doesn't come in very hard. Just a trickle. Warm works fine. I just had the water shut off due to a water main break which is now fixed and water is back on. Warm wash fills fine. Cold...

Remove the cold water hose and check the screens for debris and clean. Also look inside the water inlet valve where the hose connects there should be a screen in there remove and clean. If this doesn't fix it the water inlet valve will need replacing. Here is a link that will walk you thru cleaning and inspecting the valve

I have a whirlpool duet 2 1/2 years old I t has started to make a loud buzzing hum sound (that sounds like old top loader mixing valve malfunction?) and has error code 5d what is this ?

Actually, your error code is "Sd" and indicates that the washer thinks that there are too many suds in the basket / drum.

Your buzzing sound is also likely to be the water inlet valves, common to top loaders as well, as the washer is adding additional water to rinse excessive suds out. Check your supply hoses for kinks, connections for scale buildup inside, as well as the screens on the inlet ports of the washer itself.

A kinked or restricted drain hose can also throw an Sd error code as well.

What is usually wrong when water will not fill in a new Kenmore elite 800 washer? The spin cycle works but will not fill with water. Washer is only 3 months old.

There's no water at all If there's no water at all, make these checks: Is there water getting to the machine? Is the water-volume selector switch set properly and are the control panel buttons pressed in all the way? If you have a Maytag® washer, is the fuse (if there is one) in the control panel at the lid-switch bracket blown? Is there a faint buzzing or humming noise coming from the water-inlet valve? (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If you can't hear anything, the water-inlet valve may not be getting any power. If you can hear some noise and there's water present, you may need to completely replace the water-inlet valve.

When it gets to rinse cycle it goes for a little while then shuts off with it blinking IE on the screen

Error code IE means an water inlet error. Correct water level is not reached within 8 minutes after water is supplied or it does not reach the preset water level within 25 minutes. Unplug the washer before servicing.
  • Make sure the water tap is open.
  • Clean the water inlet valve filter.
  • Check the water inlet valve assembly:
  1. Remove the 2 screws on the back of the top plate.
  2. Pull the top plate backward then upward as shown.83d408f.jpg
  3. Disconnect the connectors from the inlet valve assembly one at a time and check the resistance between its terminals. Resistance should be 800-1200 ohms. Replace the inlet valve assembly if one or more of the valves is/are faulty.
  4. Check the electrical connection between the inlet valve assembly and the main board. Repair open or loose connections.89b21c3.jpg
  • If no problem or fault is found above, turn on the machine and press the SPIN SPEED and SOIL LEVEL button simultaneously to check the water level frequency. The digits on the display indicates the water level frequency. If the value is 246 or above, replace the main board.
  • If the water level frequency is below 246, check the pressure switch assembly, pressure switch tube and air chamber. The air chamber is found at the base of the washer on the other end of the pressure switch tube and connected to the bellow. Make sure they are not clogged and that the pressure switch is okay.e125ce9.jpg

Washer tub slowly (over several days) gets water inside

yes this is more than likely a leaking inlet valve, to confirm turn of water at wall valves

Washing maching not filling with water

The problem is most likely the water fill sensor switch. If it is telling the machine that it is full, it will go right to agitate.

Replacing water inlet valve

First of all, UNPLUG the washer before attempting any repairs, and follow these steps:

1. You will need to remove the washer top panel by loosening the three screws in the back. With the screws removed, the panel slides back, then off.
2. Turn off the water supply valves and disconnect the water inlet hoses.
3. The inlet valve should be very simple to replace at this point. Disconnect the electrical connections and the hose(s) leading from the valve to the dispenser.
4. There should be a a mounting screw holding the inlet valve to the back panel. Remove the old inlet valve and install the new valve in the reverse order of the steps I just provided.

This is should be a fairly straight forward repair that anyone can accomplish without the assistance of a repairman. If you get confused along the way, please post back and let me know. i hope this answers your questions.
