This water inlet valve attaches the water lines to the back of your appliance. The attaching solenoids on the valve open and close according to the desired temperature, or amount of water needed.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
Removed the water level pressure switch and the water inlet valve to test parts for proper operation with an ohm meter. Electrically, the switches seemed to work fine so I thought it was probably a mechanical water valve problem. I ordered and replaced both parts anyway just to be sure and potentially save time.

I think finding the tools to do the repair took longer than the actual repair! After unplugging the machine, turning off the water and disconnecting the hoses~ All I had to do was remove the top front panel~ I think that was 3 screws; remove the old part~ 2 screws, disconnecting a hose, and unplugging the 2 connections; put in the new part~ reconnecting the hose, 2 screws, plugging in the two connections; put the front panel back on~ 3 screws; reconnect the hoses, turn the water back on, plug the machine back in then tested it and it worked perfectly! When the kids got home from school and I told them I fixed it they high fived me and said, "Way to go Mom!"
Took 4 screws off of face plate, exposed valve, unplugged power supply, removed wire harnesses to hot cold valves, removed hot and cold water hoses from back of washing machine, removed two screws holding valve body to washer,put new valve in and reversed procedure. ta da!!!!!!!!!!
I replaced the water valve that the hot and cold hoses hook up to, and the pressure switch which regulates the amount of water that fills the tub. Both parts are located in the top plastic section of the washer where the controls are. The repair was easy, just a matter of taking out two screws in the back, lifting off the control face, unscrewing the water hoses, unscrewing each part, disconnecting and reconnecting the electrical plugs, and reassembling. No problems since.
Removed the screws for the control panel and replaced the load switch and valve body in about 20 minutes. Simple fix and it's working perfectly!

was a toss up between the water inlet valve OR the hose pressure switch....why spend more time...I invested in both the water inlet valve and the hose pressure switch and replaced them both....I have the machine torn apart....I spend $45 more dollars...now it's ALL done....and works like a charm...if I were to isolate the problem...I would say, now, the hose pressure switch...but, I am happy and machine probably has 5 plus, more years left...and life is good.
First I removed the old part (2 screws)Pulled off 4 wires (maybe the wrong word, I'm not a professional!Put the new part in-turned the water on and had a stream of HOT water-yayI had been putting this off because no one in my family had noticed (except me) and with my husband out of work it seemed like a low priority, but when my daughters came home for Christmas, they said "There's no hot water in the washing machine" so I took the plunge--I cannot believe I waited that long!It literally took me seven minutes!
I remove three screws on top of the washer, moved the cover of the machine in order to get access to the water valve, and then desconnected the two solenoid of the valve,and removed two screws that hold the valve with the frame and installed the new valve in same order a took the old one.
turned off the water and removed the hoses. Then removed the screws that held the back plate (that contains the knobs). removed the two screws holding the water valves and the hose to the washer. replaced the valve and then reassembled the rest.
Got on line and hooked up with Parts Select and found thru similar stories that the overflow problem with this GE wash machine was a common problem and was explaned what parts were needed and described how to access the parts inside the control panel.So I ordered water valve 1155105 and pressure switch 269820. I pulled the plug and turned the water supply off and disconnected the hoses. Pulled the knobs off the front panel and removed 4 screws. I identified the parts and how they were attached. Removed the wires and removed and replaced the parts. Put everything back together and the machine works great!
Unplugged the washer and unscrewed the hot and cold filler hoses from the back of the machine. Removed the 6 screws holding the top together. Unscrewed the 2 water valve mounting screws. Pulled off the electrical wires from the leads. Unclipped the water feed hose clip. Reattached everything to the new water valve in reverse order. Put the screws holding the top panel in place back in. For good measure, I also replaced the drain hose since I had noticed a little leakage there. Two screws and a little twisting and pushing was all that took.Then I hooked everything back up and it worked like a charm. Finally, I went out to dinner with my wife on the money I saved!
Removed knobs, removed cold and hot inlet hoses,removed top cover, removed output hose, wire plugs, and three screws and replaced the valve.
Removed 4 screwes on the top of the washer. Layed down the control panel and there was the inlets. Removed two screws and loosened the hose clamp. removed and installed new part.It did the trick. No more problems.
Problem was intermittent. It would happen once a month or so. Eventually I set next to the machine and kept turning it On and OFF through cycles for about a half an hour until it failed and I was able to confirm that problem was with the water valve.Buying and replacing the water valve was easy.WARNING: UNPLUG THE WASHING MACHINE FROM THE WALL BEFORE ATEMPTING ANY ELECTRICAL WORK ON YOUR WASHING MACHINE!
