The valve is sealed - and cannot be serviced. It must be replaced.

It appears your dual inlet water valve has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Turned on whirlpool duet washer, came back to FH as realized forgot to turn water on. Have tried all the suggestions, but each time I plug the machine it tries to drain water and the motor hums. I cannot...


Make sure both hot and cold water supplies are turned on. Select a cold wash cycle and start the wash cycle, do you get cold water? Now select a hot wash cycle and start the wash cycle, do you get hot water? If you only get cold water replace the hot water fill valve. If you only get hot water replace the cold water fill valve. If you get neither replace both fill valves.

Recently had a sediment problem with our well, is there another place to clean out sediment other than the screens at the hot & cold water hose connections on a whirlpool duet washer?


Hi and welcome to FixYa,
1. Drain and Flush your HOT water heater. This bugger will keep supplying sediment for weeks!
2. There can be hose screens installed at the wall connection also. Remove the hoses and check for hose screens.
3. Check the Inlet screens again.
4. Of you have a pressure tank.. Drain and purge (another source of debris)
Other than that as far a water supply those are the only places to be concerned about. Once your sure you have clean water.... re-check you inlet and hose screens once a week for a while as sediment will migrate through plumbing for extended periods depending on the type of sediment.
The screens can repeatedly clog for some time due to sediment.

If you experience a symptom that your machine will fill when off or leak water by constantly the debris has blocked open the inlet water valve needle at the diaphragm.
- You can sometimes back flush this by first removing BOTH inlet water screens from the water valve and reconnecting the hoses.
- Only connect ONE hose to the wall and turn on the water to the connected hose while placing the other hose in a bucket.
- Select WARM wash and let water flow into bucket. Tap the hose connections with the HANDLE of a hammer or screwdriver in an attempt to loosen debris.
- Reverse hose connections and repeat.

RE-install the inlet screens in the water valve and return the machine to normal use.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

My washing machine fills with hot water, but not with cold. The cold water barely trickles out, what is WRONG!!


CHECK TO SCREENS ON THE INTAKE VALVE SOMETIMES YOU CAN CLEAN THEM. IF YOUR WATER PRESSURE TO YOUR MACHINE IS GOOD AND THE SCREENS ARE CLEAR YOU NEED A NEW MIXING VALVE.

Front load washer will not rinse with cold water. cold water is on no kinks in hose ,no sediment in filter. clothes come out hot .doug


THIS IS MORE THAN LIKELY CAUSED BY A FAULTY WATER VALVE AND IN ORDER TO PERMANENTLY FIX THE PROBLEM IT WILL HAVE TO BE REPLACED. EVEN SMALL PARTICLES OF SAND OR SEDIMENT GETTING IN WILL JAM THE SOLENOIDS INSIDE THE VALVE. THERE IS HOWEVER A QUICK FIX YOU CAN PERFORM, YOU CAN SIMPLY SWITCH OVER THE COLD LINE TO THE HOT LINE AND THIS SHOULD TEMPORARILY FIX THIS PROBLEM PART NUMBER FOR THE INLET VALVE IS 8181694.HOPE THIS HELPS

THANKS

I can't get the cold water to fill the tub/rinse. the hot works.


Your problem is either a clogged COLD fill valve or a bad water fill valve. Turn the water off. Remove the COLD hose from the WASHER. Check the filter screen inside the valve for sediment. If you find sediment,remove the screen and clean it. Replace the screen and turn the water back on. If you do not find sediment on the screen,replace the water valve.

What is the F20 error code?


F-20 error code in Whirlpool Duet Sport washing machine is indication of inadequate water supply. Check both hot and cold water supply lines to make sure machine gets enough water intake. If you do not have a hot water supply to the machine you can only run it with the cold temperature setting. This machine does not have an internal water heater and relies on the hot water supply from the house water heater.

Duet whirlpool washer has water in tub after non-use


Sounds like you need to check your water inlet valves and make sure that they are working properly. Inlet valves when the go bad will allow water to push through do to the water pressure just sitting there not doing anything. Try to figure out if the water is hot or cold. Or you can use a volt meter and see which on is not functioning properly
