Washing Machine fills slowly how to change inlet valve
Hi My washing machine fills slowly when switched off.
I think its the hot water inlet valve
I have already turned off the water pipes, taken the hot and cold water inlet hoses out, cleaned the screens, and problem re-curs on replacing hot water supply and hose to the machine.
Can any one give me specific advice on how to replace the inlet valve please?

Switch off power
switch off water and remove hose.
remove inside pipe from valve - usually held by just a spring clip
remove electrical terminals
valve is just held with a couple of screws usually - remove these and valve will come away.
put back in same order

turn off the water valves (both hot and cold) going to the machine remove hoses from back of machine remove screens (some located in hoses, some in inlets) try to clean or install new ones (available at local hardware store)
Your COLD inlet valve is faulty. By swapping the hoses you have cold water coming in via the hot inlet valve. However, most machines will only rinse with cold water, but your machine thinks the water is hot. So...it won't rinse! Replace the cold valve or change the wires from the cold to the hot valve...Some electronic machines can be damaged by doing this. Non electronic machines could be ok...Good luck....Nomess
Hello. your fill valve is faulty and needs to be replaced.
here is how the fill valve is supposed to work:
The fill valve--which is about the size of a coffee cup--is sometimes also called a "water inlet valve." It controls the entry of hot and cold water into the machine. The valve has three major components:
A hot-water solenoid
A cold-water solenoid
A mixing valve body
The inlet valve has three hoses connected to it, for :
The hot water from the house
The cold water from the house
The water directed into the washing machine's inner tub (either hot or cold, or both) to fill it with water
When electricity flows to one or both solenoids, water flows through the valve into the washing machine's inner tub. When the electricity stops, the water also stops.
Check to see if there's good water volume coming through the hoses attached to the washing machine. If there is, check to see if the screens inside the water-inlet valve are clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If they're clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, you should completely replace the valve. Q - My washer fills slowly with water, what can I do ? A - Two things could be your problem... 1) - sometimes the screens in the fill valve or inside the ends of the fill hose get clogged up...use a tooth brush to clean them out. Don't forget to shut off the water first before removing the hoses to check for this. 2) - The fill valve itself may not be opening fully = time for a new fill valve.
You have a sticking water inlet valve, which is slowly letting water enter m/c.
If it is a hot and cold fill m/c, what you need to do is turn either the hot or cold tap off to the m/c, and see if the problem continues, if say you turn the hot off and it still comes into the washer, then you have sticking cold valve, replace with new one. if after turning cold off, and it still fills, then you need new hot valve fitting.
If it is a cold fill m/c only, then simply replace the cold inlet valve.
Plz rate my solution.
check your drain hose and drain pipe,if not that then i think your inlet water valve is not closing all the way,try it on cold only see what happens,then try on hot only see what happens,let me knoe what you find-mike
