Re: Water valve replacement
DON'T OPEN THE BACK!!!!
This is done from the front. You must remove the outer cabinet first.
UNPLUG YOU WASHER BEFORE CONTINUING!
1.) Remove the 2 phillips screws on either side of the control panel and rotate the panel up and out of the way.
2.) There are 2 brass colored clips under the panel. One on either side. Poke your screwdriver into the slot (the tip of your screwdriver will be facing down) and pry backwards toward the wall to remove these.
3.) Disconnect the white electrical connector that's plugged into the top of the cabinet.
4.) Now tilt the entire cabinet toward you. Bring it to a 45 degree angle... this will release the clips. Then lift and pull it off of there and set it aside.
You now have access to the water valve.

yes the water inlet valve is bad! might be easier to remove the base, when you remove the base the back stays connected to the frame. just unplug the machine,remove the end caps on your control panel and remove the screws holding it on, them pull slightly forward and up to fllip the control panel back it has plastic hinges on top,be careful not to break them. then unplug your lid switch, with a screwdriver remove the 2 gold clips that hold the base to the back panel, then open your lid lift from back towards you and the whole base will come off leaving the back panel and frame, should be a whole lot easier to replace the valve, then replace reversing your steps , when you are lifting off the base look at the bottom of machine through your lid and you can see how to put it back on the frame! not to hard!
That is a bad water valve. Try my washer PICTORIAL for directions on replacing that water valve. NOTE: this is a pictorial of how to replace your drive coupling but you need to bust this ****** loose to get to that valve.
Hi, If there is good pressure to the valve and the screens inside the valve are clean, you will need to replace the inlet valve. Please let me know if I can assist you further with part# or how to replace the valve.
on the back inside the washer are two solenoid operated valves that control the hot and cold water flow. your hot valve has ceased to function...and needs replacement. also make sure your hot water valve is open fully and that the screen inside it isn't clogged.
The mixing valve is also know as a "fill valve" or "water inlet valve", just for clarification. I hope these steps help you with completing your repairs. If you get confused along the way, or require additional assistance, please let me know.
This an indication that the hot water solenoid in the water inlet valve has failed. If you replace the valve, I bet your problems go away. The following link provides you with step-by-step instructions on how to replace one:
Please post back with your COMPLETE model number (located along the wash tub opening under the washer lid) if you require parts assistance. I can help you locate them online, or provide you with the a part number. I hope this helps you.
Possibly a bad fill valve. If you're hearing a noise, it sounds like the valve is getting power, but isn't opening to allow water in, or is clogged. I would check your valve inlets on the back of the washer, first. Turn off the water and disconnect the hoses on the back of the washer. The water inlet screens are located in the valve fittings. Take a cotton swap and clean them out thoroughly. If they are clear, you may want to invest in a new replacement valve. Let me know if you need to pursue this option and I can give you the steps necessary to replace. It's not a very difficult repair job. I hope this helps you.
