After removing and inspecting the old part, I didn't see any visible sediment buildup that would have impeded the flow of water through the valve. The problem may have been a partially burned out solenoid or just simple wear that prevented the valve from opening all the way. So I decided to replace the part. The only thing that prevented this from being a 10-minute installation was the fact that I didn't have access to the side of the machine, so it was a little awkward leaning over from the front with the cabinet tipped forward to bolt the new part on through the back. Also, I found it difficult to connect the outlet house clamp to the part once I had it on, so I had to remove it, connect the hose to the loose part, and then re-bolt the part on with the hose already connected. Still and all, a simple fix, and the washer fills very quickly now.

I watched the video once, ordered the part, watched it again when the part arrived, went downstairs and made the repair. The video was exactly correct! Hardest part was getting the washer case back in place, and that just took a few minutes. Excellent video!! I will check back here the next time I have a repair to make!! Thanks so much.

No hot water through inlet valve

  • Customer: Greg from Lincoln, NE
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

Taking the washer apart was no problem. I just looked on the Internet for a few tips. When removing the valve there was a little water leakage which could not be prevented. When replacing the valve it was not an exact match so I had to install the included bracket. The hard part was reinstalling the washer frame. You have to get both sides lined up to it on the bottom frame. That part would have been easier with another person. After finishing everything worked fine.

Washing machine squealed as it filled very slowly

Our washing machine "squealed" as it filled. Only the hot water did it, the cold water did not. The hot water came in real slowly, and the machine made a squealing noice and the hose going into the fill valve would vibrate. When I ordered the part, on my order confirmation email there was a link to a video showing how to replace the fill valve. It literally took my less than 30 minutes to replace the part. The only thing that was different on my machine was the screws holding the controls on. Mine were hidden under a plastic cover on the front that I had to snap off. Other than that slight difference in screw location, everything in the video matched up perfect with my machine. With the new fill valve the machine fills in 1/2 the time. We hadn't really noticed how slow it was filling until the squealing noise started. After changing the valve, the difference in fill rate was very apparent. I'm sure the 15 year old valve was full of sediment and minerals. Works like new now.

little to no water going to tub

move machine away from wall---shut off water and remove hoses--loosen screws that hold valve on back wall---remove toplid, place to side--diconnect water line at tub----disconnect wires to valve,hot/cold---remove old valve with hose attached---take new valve and place new mount bracket on, little tricky did not line up at first must force plate to slid into plastic slot so screw hold lines up, without breaking new valve---once bracket on replaced all---used tape on inlet valves thread when supply hoses replaced--seems shorter than old valve--but tighten up OK no leaks

Replace hot/cold water inlet valve

My washer leaked water in after wash cycle and cloths were wet after spin cycle. The cause of problem was defined in Parts Select trouble shooting guide. Replacement was just as the video described, except this model had two screws on front of control panel and the panel tipped back on hinges. Look at both sides of washers, so when you reinstall the body you know how it should look against the back panel. I didn't slide the whole washer body off, just tilted against a wall. Also, it's not necessary to get behind the washer, so the repair can be done in a tight laundry rooms like mine.

We started to get water hammer in the pipes when ever the washer was set to cold? Looked it up here and figured the inlet was about to go out, ordered the part, 2 days later, brand new washer, no more problems. Local repair would have cost us at least $100.00, part was $25.00 shipped, videos are awesome tools, PartsSelect Rules!!!

Looked at the video instructions on the web site, then noticed my model was slightly different. Switched to YouTube. Searched "Water Inlet Valve Replacement Whirlpool Washer". The repair was faster than advertised (40 minutes total). Less time than waiting for a repair person... Very good delivery service from Part Select. Will buy again!
