1) Researched internet for parts to make repair2) Tested the cold side to make sure the only problem was the valve.3) Ordered part from PartSelect4) Made repairs after going to hardware store to purchase a set of torx bits to loosen the front panel so I can replace the dual valve assembly.Only tools needed #1 Phillips and #15 Torx
First I unpluged the unit then I remove the hot and cold water hoses from the back. I removed the torx head screws that hold the control cover at the top of the washer, then I located the water valve. Once I located the water valve I took the 2 phillips head screws that hold it in place out , unpluged the electrical connecters took the water supply hose off. I then removed the old valve and replaced it with a new one.Then I put everything back together. very simple job 10 minutes tops.
Remove screws from front panel, removed two screws holding valve in place, "found it would be easier to remove upper back panel also to get the hose clamp back on", Disconnected wires and reconnected to new valve, put the screws in rear and front panel, hocked up the supply lines and done. Worked great. Took me maybe 5 min. from start to finish
1. Disconnected Water Hoses (Hot & Cold). Needed a wrench to initially loosen and then used my hand to remove them.2. Opened the Control Panel, by unscrewing and removing the cover.3. Pulled out the two electrical plugs (labelled which one goes where with a tape) connected to the old water valve.4. Pulled out a tiny hose connected to the old water valve (by loosening a clamp that held the hose tight with a pair of pliers).5. Removed the old valve, put in the new. Reattached the hose, the electrical plugs, closed the control panel, and reattached the hot & cold water hoses.6. Problem solved.
I removed the supply hoses, removed the screws holding the sheet metal control console in place exposing the dual water inlet valve. Removed the two screws holding the valve in place, removed each wire from the old valve attaching it to the matching connector blade on the new valve. Using pliers loosened the spring clamp holding the output hose to the valve and reattached the hose to the new valve. Then screwed the new valve to the washer and reattached the supply hoses. After running a test for leaks and that the valve functioned properly, I screwed the sheet control console back in place.
Replaced the Dual Water Inlet Valve. Took about 15 minutes to take the old one off and put the new one back on. the cold water started comming out like it should,it also seemed to have more pressure and filled faster. We have had the washer for over five years and it seemed that it took forever for it to fill when we did a load. So by replacing the valve it fixed the problem of no cold water comming out and the slowness of filling. It seems to be filling faster.
took longer to find my star tip screw driver for the control panel, once i removed it.removed hoses, 2 screws and 4 wires.put new valve in.totally fixed the problem!
I removed the 4 screws from rear of top control panel, tilted it forward. Found the fill valve and water fill pressure switch right there. Removed a few screws and changed both items in less than 10 min. Parts cost about $75, probably saved me over $200 to have repair man in.
turn the water off and remove the hoses from the dual water inlet valve;4 screws from electric panel and the 2 screws were the dual water inlet valve is,also a little hose;so that set.I put everything back on.now is working
So, I did an internet search using Hotpoint washer as my keywords and selected Partselect to find a new Dual Water Inlet valve. I found the part and called the company to place my order and the associate asked me for my model number to be sure it was the right one. It wasn't, only similar, and she located the correct one for me. I ordered it and it arrived quickly. I had it installed in less than 15 minutes and the washer works just fine now.Excellent service!
First, turn off water faucets. Next remove control panel. water valve is in back, easily accessible, held in by 2 screws. Removed 2 water inlet hoses and one outlet hose held by a spring type hose clamp. Removed 4 wiring connectors from valve. reverse steps to reinstall.
removed screws from control panel. pulled panel back to reach control valve and removed two screws holding valve. found that freezing caused one valve to leak. pushed valve back and reinstalled. That did not work so ordered a new valve, installed it and all worked find. don't forget to unplug washer from electricity and turn off water supply. Also the garagefloor needs water spill removed asap as the water froze on me and made it difficult to remove.
I removed the four screws at the top of the washing machine and pulled the front cover off. I unscrewed the two screws that was holding the valve and disconnected the sockets. Last put on the part and connected two wires and put screws back in and reconnected the hoses and washing machine is working perfectly.
