Question about Washing Machines
How do you get the old cutof valve out of the washing machine, to install a new one.
We have a top loader.Water is not cutting of as quick as it should.
You usually have to remove the top panel of the washer to get acess to the inlet soleniod valves in back to remove and replace them. However, you can first try to clean the old valves to remove sediment and deposits. This usually works. After you get the valve assembly removed from the machine, take apart one valve and soak parts in vinegar for a few ours. Scrub parts with toothbrush and reassemble. Then do same with other valve. Doing one valve at a time is better so if you forget how parts go back together you can follow other valve. Or just take good notes. When both are reassembled, try with a garden hose to see if valves no longer leak. If they don't you have solved the problem!
