Re: HOW TO REMOVE THE TOP OF THE MACHINE?
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.

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)
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)
- 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)
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).
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.
Place a bucket or pan under the water inlet valve to catch residual water from the fill hoses.
Remove the fill hoses from the water inlet valve then drain the residual water into the bucket or pan.
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.
Lift the console then flip it towards the back of the machine.
Disconnect the lid switch wiring harness connector from the body of the machine.
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.
Remove the screws holding the water inlet valve to the back of the machine.
Move the clamp holding the inlet hose to the water inlet valve to remove it.
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.
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
Remove the three screws at the back of the machine holding the top cover.
Slide the top cover to the back and lift it from the washer.
Put a bucket or pan under the inlet valves.
Remove the fill hoses from the machine and drain the water into the bucket or pan to avoid flooding your floor.
Remove the screws holding the water inlet valve assembly to the back of the machine.
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.
Install the new water inlet valve assembly and all other parts disassembled in reverse order of the procedure above.
Make sure to clean the fill hose filters, if there's any, before attaching it to the water inlet valve assembly.
TURN ELECTRIC OFF .....top lid off x2 screws on lid....remove water inlet pipe...TURN WATER OFF FIRST :)....undo or unclip on valve...unclamp water clamp on hose ... take off hose ...reomove valve..refit new part ..refit hoses .... test .
switch off power
switch off water and remove hose.
remove inside pipe from valve - usually held by just a spring clip
remove electrical terminals
valve is just held with a couple of screws usually - remove these and valve will come away.
put back in same order
