$10 fill valve?

I know that you don't want to endorse any particular site, but I'm having trouble finding the mythical $10 replacement fill valve of my dreams -- perhaps I'm searching using the wrong terms? Could you point me in the right direction, please?

    If the part number is" target="_blank" rel="nofollow" >358276, then, yet again, Google is my best friend: I found it for about $15 at a number of places. It doesn't look exactly like the one for $53 at a well-known "repair clinic" web site, but I'll check it out before ordering.

    In the meanwhile, I've shut off the inlet valves so I can leave the door open and prevent mold growth in these very hot California Summer days.

Not sure about the $10 replacement (i think it was20-30). if you search for "whirlpool washer fill valve" on the net or on something like ebay, you will get something. alternatively you can try searching on the actual part number.

the mount on generic part I ordered was upside down. So i just mounted it to a piece of 1x2 to reinforce it.

The bleach dispenser keeps filling up with water (I am not using it) and I don't know how to empty it - and why is it filling up?

You have a leaking water valve that dispenses water into the bleach cup. You will need to replace the water valve to stop this problem.
Good luck

We had to turn off our water a couple of times this week and now the kenmore washing machine keeps filling with water when it is not in use. We also have a kenmore water softener don't know if this...

if the machine is filling on it's own you have to replace the water valve located on the back of the washer.when you shut off the water and turn it back on sediment in the pipes can get disturbed and flow into the valve,when the valve goes to fully close it can't because sediment is inside the valve and stopping it from fully closing,the only way to fix this is to replace the valve,you don't want to come home to a flooded out home because of the valve.whenever you write about your appliances send the model number so i can look up your model and give you the part number,when you go to your parts store,give them the model number off of the machine and they will sell you the correct part.

Intuitive Eco 701 ... error code 50. I'm sure it's to do with the fill solenoids. It is filling very slowly.

Yes. Whichever is filling slow. Hot or cold. It is a code for the fill valve. Just replaced the cold fill valve on my unit which seems to be the one that most commonly goes out. Easy repair. 2 screws and 1 Plug...If you unscrew the top by taking out two phillips screws in the back, you will find some paperwork about trouble codes, repairs etc...Right next to the fill valves.

No water coming into dishwasher

dishwasher will not fill with water: This is often the fill valve. You can test the fill valve coil for continuity with a ohm meter, no needle movement = bad fill valve. You can also test the fill valve for 120 volts at the fill valve with a volt meter, power there and no fill = bad fill valve. No 120 volts there, you will have to trace power back to find the trouble maker. Test things like the float and float switch, wires and timer. Fill valves are very bad for working once or twice and then quitting, if your dishwasher fills the first and second fill cycles and then no more water through the rest of the cycle, replace the fill valve. You will need to remove the access panels to get at the fill valve. Dishwasher fill valves also have a screen built into the valve entrance, this can also get all clogged up and need to be cleaned. ----- There's no water entering the machine If there's no water entering your dishwasher, check these: Water-inlet valve Float switch Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it. Float switch The float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets caught or trapped in the raised position, the water can't enter the dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.

The washer won't fill up when it is on rinse cycle...what do I need to do?

I would check for a cold water supply problem, since it requires cold water for the rinse. Unplug the machine, turn off the water, and remove the supply hoses. Check the small metal screens inside the openings on the valve. Make sure they are clear of rust and debris. Pay particular attention to the cold water side. The solenoids can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter and checking continuity. A lack of continuity will indicate a faulty solenoid and the inlet valve assy will need replaced. I'll attach a photo for reference. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

The fact that you have 240V to the valve does not prove that the valve is o/k. Determine which is the live wire, and leave connected to valve coil.
You need to remove the neutral wire from the valve, and test with your meter that as well as having 240V going in, you have 240V coming out on the other terminal, if you have not , then you have a faulty valve..Simply replace it.
I assume that you have a neutral feed to the valve, because if you have not, then the fault is probably in the pcb board.
The coils on these valves often go open circuit.
Plz rate my solution.
