Re: Accessing intake valve screen
If you mean the intake valve screen on the valve itself? It is molded into the plastic durring manufacture. While you can clean hose side with something small to scrape ( screwdriver, toothbrush, etc) If it has gotten past the valve screen, you have to cut the plastic. You can get a replacement valve at your local appliance parts store or order it on line from the manufacture.

see this causes and fix it. God bless you Water comes in very slow This is usually a water valve problem or
an inlet screen blocked. 1st check your inlet screens of your water
valve. Turn your house water valve off to the washer, undo the fill
hoses and inside the water valve, you will see a silver screen. If the
screen is filled with water deposits, clean it out and re-install into
valve. Don't forget to check your fill hoses also, some hoses come with
screens that also may be clogged. Your cold water valve usually clogs
before the hot water valve, all that sediment settles in your hot water
tank and not in the screens. If you are on a well system, your screens
usually clog more often. If your screens are good, then most likely
your water valve needs replacing.
Replace or clean your water inlet valve. It appears that the hot water solenoid has either become clogged, or had failed. You can find a replacement at repairclinic.com. Type in your COMPLETE model number in the Search window and there will be two of them located under the "Water Valve/Float" heading. Depending on WHICH type of valve you have, a replacement costs between $28 and $74. Refer to the part illustrations to make sure you are ordering the correct part. If you require assistance in accessing the inlet valve, let me know. I hope this helps you.
PS If you attempt to clean the valve, you will need to turn off the water supply and disconnect the hoses. Check the inlet screens for sediment or debris.
