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.

cold water came out really low and machine made a fairly loud noise

Follow the video for replacing the part if you're not handy. I watched part of it because I haven't played with (repaired) a washer in a long time. Mark the wire connections before removing them from the valve not critical but helpful. I actually needed the video for replacing the clips.

Hot water stopped flowing and had a small leak

This was a pretty easy repair that only cost about $30 and 20 minutes to do. The video was very useful even though the Inlet was slightly different than the original. Putting the housing back on was the toughest part. The one thing they failed to mention is that you may have to unhook the outlet on the washing machine depending on how much room you have to work. I've never worked on a washing machine before so I was very happy with the ease it took to replace this part and that the diagnosis was correct. I bet this would have cost over $125 to have a repairman do it. I also found it easier to do with two people. We simply unhooked the hoses...remember which is which. It might be a good time to check and replace the hoses too. My cold water hose is in bad shape so I know now to replace it soon. After unhooking the hoses and the outlet...and unplugging it, we moved it to an open area to work on. Simply unscrew the control panel and flip it back, then uncl the wires to the lower part of the machine. Unclip the hinges and pull the body off. Then unscrew the old inlet, unclip the hose and the circuits...again remember which goes where but they are color coded. Toss the old one and replace with the new one and reverse everything you just did.

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.

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

The new coupling parts are better made than the original parts. It was difficult to disassemble motor unit to get at the the old coupling, but once that was accomplished, the new coupling installed pretty easily. The machine is working fine now.

researched potential causes, found clutch dust under the washer and determined that it wouldn't engage because clutch was too worn. ordered the assembly,It was very easy to install. I also noticed oil residue on the side of the washer so after more research I found out I needed to replace the transmission also. The seal on top of the unit was worn out. I ordered a new transmission and install it and now it works like new. It's very rewarding to fix your own washer. Now all my friends are fixing their own washer and dryers. Thank You!!!

We have a 6 year old top loading Whirlpool washer. The drum would not spin at the end of its wash cycle when it is supposed to spin dry. I followed the video exactly and it worked great. I replaced the clutch and rubber coupling. It is not difficult if go slow and methodical and you follow the excellent video My wife washes heavy rugs often and it wore out the clutch. The washer works better than it has in a long time.

1) Unplugged power to the machine. 2)Disconnected the water inlet hoses and the drain hose. 3)Placed the washer on the front of the cabinet. 4) Moved the washer to an area large enough to allow it to be laid down and worked on. 5)Removed the sound deading panel from the bottom of the washer. 6)Disconnected the electrical plugs from the motor. 7)Disconnected the two hoses to the pump. 8)Removed the two strap retaining bolts from top of the motor. 9) Removed the two motor retaining straps. 10) Removed motor and pump assembly from the transmission. 11) Removed the broken drive coupler and replaced it with the new coupler. 12)Reassembed in reverse order.
