Gupshaw, I know this is a duplicate, so I'm just trying to get this ticket closed out. However, if you check this one first, here's all the information too.

Unfortuneately the 24032\24036 is a series number that encorporates many models numbers of machines. These instructions will therefore try and cover all of the models in this series. Thankfully, most of the steps are all similar for the whole series.

To help get you machine going again faster, have you already purchased a replacment water valve? While you can order them online from the manufacturer, it is far easier and quicker to take the same model number to a local appliance parts store (usually listed in the phone book) and just get one from them (typically it is cheaper this way too). Now that you have your part, these are the basic's.

First, you have to un plug the unit. Next turn the hot and cold water valves coming from your house off. Next, loosen the hose connectors where they meet the machine using plier or channel locks. There will be water left in them so if don't want the small amount of water on the floor, I recommend holing a wash cloth, towel, rag, etc underneath them. Once they are disconnected, lay them out of the way, or tie them to the large black drain hose. There will be 1 or 2 (depending on your model) 1/4 inch screws that hold the valve on next to where you removed the hoses. Go ahead and take these out now too.

Now to get inside, open the console. There are 3 common ways to open them for this series. The most common is models have plastic caps covering the 2 phillips screws that will be on the right and left hand sides where the console meets the top of the washer. Just firmly pull on the right and left corners at the top to remove the covers and the screws underneath. The next most sommon style is 2 phillips screws on the back side of the console where it meets the top of the washer. This style will have no covers. The 3rd most common type is when there are no screws or caps. This last style, you will have to use a putty knife or narrow flat head screw driver. Insert it under the front right and left hand sides where the console meets the top in the front. Push it in between the top and console and it will release the clip. All 3 styles will now rotate up and towards the rear of the machine. It's the same from here on in for all of the series. Underneath the console there will be 3 wires connected to the top of the washer. (genreally a combanation of brown, green, whit, or gray) Unplug this connector by gently prying the clip on the side of the connector and gently pulling). Next, remove the 2 brass colored clips underneath by pushing down with a large screwdriver at the point where it goes into the top of the machine while simultaniously pushing towards the rear. Once these clips are off, it will let the top, front and both sides come off as one assembly. First tilt the top towards you (about 45 degrees). Now put one hand inside under the lid to pick up on the cabinet while keeping the other hand on the back of the cabinet to keep the whole cabinet tilted. Once you set the cabinet aside, locate your water valve on the inside of the machine. You will find 2-4 connectors going to the valve depending on the model. Just jot down what order they are in then remove them. Again gently pry the locking tab to the side and slide the connector off. Finnally, you will see a black rubber hose with a silver or green clamp on the bottom of the valve. Just squeeze the clamp together, and pull the hose off (watch out for that left over water again). Now you just re-assemble everything in reverse order.

I always recommend you test your washer (fill it, agitate it and spin it out) while you are standing there to make sure you didn't miss one of these steps and have some unpleasent leaks.

If you are still having problems or run into trouble, send me back your specific model number (If you lift the lid to your washer and look at the plaque on the back center just under the lid you will have a model number [usually started with a 110.]) and where you got hung up at and we'll get you on through it.

Finnally, if this has taken care of everthing you needed, please don't forget to log back in and score my information. It helps others find me so I can assist them as well.

My dishwasher wasnt draining, we replaced the drain pump. now no water is going in to the dishwasher at all

While the drain pump was replaced, you could have accidently removed the lines to the inlet vavles . Remove the inlet hose connection and check for water flow. ow check the inlet section to be clear of dirt. Check the voltage to the inlet vavle from the program controller unit , if absent check the connecting pins or the lines for a break.
It is quite impossible that while you had a draining fault it could lead to a program controller failure. Make sure that the door switch is working and initiating the controller to start operation.
If supply is present the inlet vavle can be faulty.

Kenmore washer model #110.28882790 is very slow to fill with water. We've checked and cleaned the hose filters. Is there some kind of water sensor? Or hidden filters?

Remove the water line from the INLET valve and start the machine , if there is no proper flow of water then the inlet vavle is not working to open , the filter on the vavle is clogged or the inlet filter is blocked. Also check the voltage on the inlet valve to make sure that the controller unit is outputting correct voltage.
If not replace filter , valve to ensure that the drum get best flow for filling.

How to replace inlet vavle

yes your inlet water valve is the problem. you have to remove the outer cabinet first by taking the control panel loose and "flipping it back, then remove the 2 hold down clips, kindof a wierd "s" shaped thing in each upper corner, then the cabinet will "hinge" forward allowing you to get into where the valve is at. the rest should be easy, a single mounting screw and the 2 hoses, make sure to put the wiring plugs back on in the correct place on the new valve.
