You have to remove the front first. 4 screws around the door jam and the front will come off. Then 2 screws hold clips which secure the top behind the front panel. Remove the screws and clips and remove the 4 screws on the top holding the soap dispenser in. The top will now lift up.

Water continues to run into the washing machine through the whole wash cycle and even when the machine is off. I have to keep the tape turned off. other than that the washing machine functions normally.


Hi Welcome to FixYa I am Kelly. You have debris inside your water inlet valve. You can try to clean it by doing the following:

- First remove both hoses from the water inlet valve and remove the inlet screens of the water valve.
(Use a knife blade on the outer part of the screens to remove them from the water valve)
- Connect both hoses to the water inlet valve without the inlet screens.
- Connect ONE hose to the wall faucet
- Place ONE hose in a bucket

SELECT WARM WASH and start wash fill

Water should flow into the washer and the bucket. Use the handle of a screwdriver and tap the hose connections of the inlet water valve for about 20 seconds. (your trying to free the debris from the inlet water valve diaphram)

Stop Fill

Reverse Hose connection at the wall.... i.e. hook up other hose and disconnect the one you had connected. Place the hose you disconnected from the wall into the bucket.

START warm fill

Water should flow into the washer and the bucket. Use the handle of a screwdriver and tap the hose connections of the inlet water valve for about 20 seconds. (your STILL trying to free the debris from the inlet water valve diaphrams)

STOP FILL

- Connect hose to wall connection
- WASH the inlet screens under slowly running water until both sides are clean
- Remove hoses from the water inlet valve and install the inlet screens.
- Reconnect hoses and turn on water supply

TEST HOT and COLD fill

Turn off machine.... IF the debris was freed the water flow will stop when the machine is turned off.

If this flushing attempt does not correct your constant water flow the remedy is to replace the water inlet valve on your washer.

I can help with locating parts ON-Line but will need your model number to help you should you require a water valve.

Hopefully you are able to clear the debris by doing the above. (50 - 50 chance of it working)

Thanks for Choosing FixYa,
Kelly

When the machine is off it is filling up with


It sounds like you're probably looking in the right place...it's possible that the inlet water valve is stuck open or simply defective. Turn off the water, turn off the power, remove the hoses and check the inlet valve. The valve could be stuck, have something in it. You may need to remove the inlet valve(s).

Washer is stuck at 45 minues


Check the inlet screen on the cold water hose. Turn off the cold valve by the inlet hose, disconnect the hose from the back of the machine, and look for a plugged screen inside the hose thread nipple on the back of the machine. Remove screen, clean it out, replace screen, hose, and turn water back on.

Water pooling in washer in between loads


The problem is caused by a leaking water inlet valve and the only way to solve it is by replacing the water inlet valve assembly. It is an easy "do-it-yourself" fix that only requires a minimum effort.

Water Inlet Valve Replacement Procedure
  1. Remove the three screws at the back of the machine holding the top cover.
  2. Slide the top cover to the back and lift it from the washer.
  3. Put a bucket or pan under the inlet valves.
  4. Remove the fill hoses from the machine and drain the water into the bucket or pan to avoid flooding your floor.
  5. Remove the screws holding the water inlet valve assembly to the back of the machine.
  6. Use a pair of pliers to press the spring clamp holding the inlet hose to the inlet valve assembly and move the spring clamp away.
  7. Install the new water inlet valve assembly and all other parts disassembled in reverse order of the procedure above.
  8. Make sure to clean the fill hose filters, if there's any, before attaching it to the water inlet valve assembly.
