The part your are referring to is also known as a mixing valve. The mixing valve contains the cold and hot water valves as an assembly.

My Whirlpool Cabrio dryer has water leaking in it. How do I fix this or what's causing it?

This model has steam support, so it should have a cold water connection to it. Check for leaks where the hose connects to the rear of the dryer. If you do not use the steam feature, you can shut off the water and that will probably end your problem.

When the washer/dryer gets near the end of the drying cycle, a lot of water is added resulting in sodden clothes lying in a puddle. How can I fix this?

Look inside unit for tech sheet, technician manual to run diagnostics mode. See if you can find stored codes and it should also tell you how to erase stored error codes.

My drum fills with water and is not turned on

Sounds like water control solenoid is stuck in the open position.
The hot and cold solenoids are located just inside where the hoses attach to the washer.

Check the water valve for continuity. Also check the screen on the cold water side to see if it is clogged. That is what I would do.

Aeg washer drier switches on but will not work .no water going in

No water should be a simple problem. Start with the easiest first. Check that your water is on. If so, water should be reaching the solenoid ( the electric water valve in the washer). When you turn the washer on you should hear a "click". That is the solenoid energizing and opening the valve. If you get neither hot or cold water, that could be the problem. Either it doesn't work, or it isn't getting electricity from the timer to open up. Check that with a multi meter. If you hear the solenoid click, but have no water, you have a blockage somewhere. Although unlikely, check your supply hoses. It's the easiest to check. If that's clear, and your somewhat handy, take off the hose downstream from the solenoid and blow air through it. If it won't go, your blockage is in there somewhere. Try pressurized air, or take off hoses to clear. If none of this works, you're going to have to call in the pros.

Model # LER5634A

there could be 1 of 2 problems with your unit and it`s not the start switch, if the water is not filling the likely problem is ether a defective water level censor unit, it is located at the end of a rubber tube and is disc shaped with the tube at the bottom and a wiring harness at the top, the other possibility is a defective water control solenoid located at the inlet of the water hoses, you can easily check the solenoids with an ohm meter, check for continuity across the 2 contacts located on the solenoid , the easier way to check the solenoids is if you use cold water only in you wash, select hot water, this will enable the hot water solenoid, if it still dos not fill then it is your water level censor that is defective.

No cold water, just hot and warm wash

Cold water and hot water make warm water. Check water inlet valve for blockage or solenoid malfunction.

Cold stopped working

Check the strainer in the cold water inlet line. Make sure it is not plugged. Then,put the cold water line into a bucket and open the valve slowly until water comes out. If water flows freely, it's probably the cold water solenoid. It's pretty easy to replace.
If not, check all valves upstream, check for a collapsed hose, or mineral build up in the pipe (galvanized pipe)
