The exact model number would help. I think your admiral is a lot like a maytag fridge. Look at the installation instructions in this manual: http://www.maytag.com/assets/product/Use%20and%20Care%20Guide%20-%202326267A.pdf or this manual to compare: http://www.maytag.com/assets/product/12842123.PDF

It does seem that the water inlet is at the valve as you suspect.

Good Luck!

Darn! Don't you just hate them for doing that!!! You have a bad solenoid that controls your water inlet valves. You didn't say which one. But I'm guessing it is the Hot Water one. They are located inside the machine where the Hoses that connect to your house plumbing water supply.

I have a lime.stoppage in the washing.machine or hose, where do I start? It is not.the.wall faucet. I tested it.


check/ replace the inlet solenoid valve unit in the machine
if it is faulty or not getting power then the water will not flow into the machine.
simple test is to change the hot water hose to the cold water tap and use hot water setting with the cold water tap on
if the water flows then it is the cold water solenoid

GE Profile Dishwasher about 7 years old. everything seems to work door locks the machine trys to pump water in but it can't. I put water in thhe bottom of the machine and it does work a little but verry...


The washer doesn't pump water in--plumbing water pressure forces it in when the water inlet solenoid opens the valve. Check the water inlet solenoid--they are a common failure point. Look under the front of the washer behind the panel to find it--just trace the water inlet line. It connects directly to it. The valve can be stuck shut or, more commonly, the plastic coil form of the solenoid disintegrates. In any case, just replace it. Don't forget to shut off the water supply valve under the sink before you start work. Hope this helps!

Dishwasher is running through the cycles, but no water is being pumped into the unit. water supply is fine. Is this a common pump problem?


This is either the inlet valve (solenoid valve) or the timer. Water is not pumped in, it flows in under it's own pressure when this valve opens.

On the solenoid valve there are two electrical connections, you could remove these (often spade connections) and connect a mains supply - if it opens then the valve is fine so it is the timer.

A solenoid valve is a cheap and easy to swap component and any DIY'er can do it. It is located right by the inlet pipe (it is part of the inlet pipe assembly) the screw part which the cold water pipe is attached to is the solenoid inlet valve.

MY WASHER ONLY WORKS WITH COLD WATER. WE CAN NOT WASH CLOTHES USING HOT WATER.


check for 120volts on both water solenoids (hot & cold) as the solenoid could be bad,or the machine isn't letting power to the hot solenoid valve to open it,but frist make sure the hose screens aren't plugged and not letting water through these fill hoses to these solenoid valves

Just re-installed frig/freezer after sitting in storage for several years. Icemaker does not fill with water. Is there a float that could be stuck, or air in the line that needs to be bled???


Trace water supply line to where it connects to back of unit and locate the solenoid valve. This is a small electric valve that controls water supply to ice maker. They are usually connected with compression fittings so slightly loosen compression nut on inlet side to see if you have water to that point. If no water there then backtrack water line to source and make sure water line is hooked up and valve is on.
If you have water to inlet side of solenoid valve manually actuate ice maker and listen to hear if valve is opening. IF not then valve will need replaced. If you have water to valve and valve is opening then shut off water supply valve. Renove compression nut and clean inlet screen and put back together. Check to make sure filter is open . Remove line from outlet of solenoid and blow thru it to make sure its open into freezer. Hope this helps you. Thanks

My dishwasher will drain but will not fill up with water ?


Hello there
Specific symptoms include: Little or no water enters the tub . To find the cause, first check to be sure the water is ON.

always “zero” the ohmmeter before making any continuity checks on dishwasher components. . When making continuity checks with the volt/ohmmeter, always turn the electricity OFF at the circuit breaker panel. Live voltage checks will damage the meter movement.With the water ON, remove the lower panel. Place a towel or shallow container on floor to absorb water. Loosen the nut that secures the dishwasher water tubing to the inlet port of the water inlet valve. If water collects immediately in the towel or container, it can safely be assumed that the water pressure is adequate and the plumbing system is not clogged . If little or no water collects in the container, the water line gate valve could be defective or there is a problem in the plumbing system.
Turn the water OFF. Remove the lower panel. Loosen and remove nut that attaches water tubing to water inlet valve inlet port. With tubing removed, check for corrosion and debris that has accumulated inside the tubing and inlet valve inlet port. . Turn the water supply ON. Select a cycle on the timer dial where the dishwasher starts to fill with water. If it starts to fill with water — you fixed it. The problem was corrosion inside the water tubing or inlet valve water inlet port. If the dishwasher still does not fill with water, an additional electrical check will have to be made.Next, test for electrical power to the water inlet valve from the dishwasher timer assembly. Using the volt/ohmmeter, set the meter on the 150-volt scale and attach the two test leads of the volt/ohmmeter to the two terminals of the water inlet valve solenoid coil to be checked. Turn the water ON. With the test leads attached to the solenoid terminals, select a cycle on the dishwasher timer dial where the dishwasher starts to fill with water. Push in or pull out the timer dial. You should get a voltage reading of 110-125 volts A/C on the volt/ohmmeter scale. If you get a reading, this would indicate that electricity is available from the dishwasher timer assembly to the water inlet valve.However, the absence of water flow means the water inlet valve is defective

Frigidaire refrigerator FRS24BGGB water in ice maker will not shut off


HI. The inlet assembly is malfunctioning. The solenoid is stuck at this moment(Debris will build up,in return, causing the solenoid to stick. The valve can fail mechanically, as well). this will produce an uncontrollable flow of water, in to the manifold. Follow the procedure below to address this issue further.

The water inlet valve is located behind your refrigerator. Find the water supply line coming into the valve and turn it off at the source (typically under the sink). Disconnect the supply line. Remove the screws that secure the inlet valve in place.

The water inlet valve is connected by two wires. Label the wire placement on the water inlet valve before disconnecting the wires. The wires are connected to the terminals with slip on connectors

Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If the connectors are corroded they should be replaced.

Inspect the filter screen where the supply line connects. Remove any debris or deposits that may have built up using a toothbrush, or warm running water. If you cannot clear the clog, it will be necessary to replace the valve (the filter is not removable on most inlet valves).


Test the water inlet valve for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X100 (if available, otherwise use the nearest ohm setting). Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should display a reading of 200 to 500 ohms. Close inspection of the inlet valve and especially the coil may reveal the exact ohm resistance rating to test for. If the water inlet valve does not pass this test, it should be replaced.

NOTE_ In most newer units, thee will be a third flow solenoid mounted near the ice maker assembly. Test this solenoid as well, if equipped.

No water is going in


Check the water water supply at the water inlet valve. Remove the supply hoses and check that the small screens in the inlet valve are not clogged with rust or debris. The water inlet valve solenoids can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty solenoid and the water inlet valve will need to be replaced. I am attaching a photo for reference. Hope this helped and best wishes.

ocate your dishwasher's water inlet valve. It should be located behind the lower kickplate panel in either the right or left corner. There will likely be two screws either on the top of the panel, or on its bottom. Remove these two screws, and then remove the kickplate. On some dishwasher models, the door has to be opened in order to gain access to, and remove the kickplate's screws. Close the door before you remove the kickplate panel.

You will be able to identify the water inlet valve by the hoses that connect to it. There will be one hose feeding water from the house to the water valve, and another hose leading from the water valve that carries water away. Now is a good time to inspect your dishwasher's hoses, to make sure they aren't responsible for any water flow problems. Make sure the hoses are securely connected to the valve. Also check to make sure there are not kinks in the hoses. Kinks can impede the flow of water.

There will be two wires connected to the water inlet valve. If your dishwasher's water inlet valve has two solenoids, then there will be four wires. Label the wires so that you will be able to correctly reconnect them later. The wires are connected using slip-on connectors. Grasp the connectors and pull on them firmly in order to disconnect the wires from the valve's terminals. Do not pull on the wires themselves. You may want to use a pair of needle nosed pliers to help you.

Use your multitester to test the valve for continuity. Set the device to the ohms setting x 1. Touch each of the meter's probes to a terminal. If you receive a reading of infinity, it means the valve's solenoid is faulty and the valve needs to be replaced. If your valve has two solenoids (four terminals), test the second pair of terminals in the same manner. If either pair of terminals receives a result of infinity, replace the water inlet valve.
