Washer was over flowing

unlike the other's that said to take the top control panel off, i turned the machine up side down and was able to reach the valve from the bottom. it does require a good reach in but an average length arm will make it. just take the rubber hose loose from the valve with a pair of pliers, or hose clamp pliers if you are so blessed to have them, then pull the hose loose from the valve, then take the two electrical conectors off noting wich one goes with each side, then a nut driver should remove the valve without difficulty. installing new valve should be the reverse. i was up in running in minutes. it took longer to undo the hoses and reattach the hoses than to replace the valve.

Did not have hot/warm water

I followed the instructions I found on your website. It made it very easy. Easier than if I had tried to do it the way I thought I had to remove the back of the washer. Going through the top panel made removing the bottom panel screws unnecessary.
The experts were correct, the instructions precise. Thank you

The water inlet valve was defective

First I turned off the water to the washer and then removed the hot/cold water hoses going to the washer, unscrewed the water hoses from the washer, and cleaned the wire screens located immediately inside the inlet water valve. This did not solve the problem. Second, I loosened the hex head screws on the back panel of the washer. This allowed me access to the valve. I tested the valve solenoids with my ohm/volt meter and all checked out OK (but this did not make sense). Third, I surfed the web to find out if the symtoms of the washer's problem were the same as experienced by other people. I found several reports of the same symptoms, all which were solved by replacing the water inlet valve. This conformed my original diagnosis although the valve tested as OK. Fourth, I ordered the part from PartSelect, and removed the hose clamp and two mounting screws holding the old valve to the back panel of the washer and removed the old valves. Last, when the new valve arrived, I assembled the new backing plate to the new valve, attached it to the washer's back panel, attached the water hoses to the valve after fitting new rubber seals to the inside of the hoses, and reattached the washer back panel. The washer is working perfectly again.

Squealing noise, very little cold water to fill tub, hot water normal

turn off hot and cold water faucets,unplug the power,pull washer out to gain access to rear cover, remove the top control panel screws,push back and lift off, disconnect hot and cold water hoses from inlet valve and remove enough screws from the back panel to remove the valve, disconnect the valve from the tub fill hose (mine had a spring type hose clamp) note the orientataion of the hot and cold hoses and the solenoid connectors for the hot and cold sides,(mine is stamped in the rear cover)reconnect and reassemble in reverse order and check for proper operation.

Refill valve leaked continuosly.

Removed the hoses from the inlet valve. Removed screws that hold control panel in place . Removed control panel which exposed two clips that hold the top of the back panel. Removed the ground screw freeing the ground wire, removed the plastic loom which holds a bundle of wires. I next removed the plastic plate that protects the fill valve from splashed water. Removed the screw that holds the valve in place, then removed the wires and the fill hose. Reversed steps to put back together.

My washing machine overflowed and flooded the basement

First, I unplugged it and disconnected the water hoses (the water has been off to it for days). Then, I tried taking off the back of the washing machine. This didn't work, and I actually ended up googling instructions and found pretty detailed, illustrated instructions at Popular Mechanics.
You need to unscrew the front panel that contains all of the controls first, flip it up, and unhook it from the back of the washer (via an electronics clip and 2 metal clips). The outer cover can then be taken off. I recommend undoing the internal hose next -- I used adjustable pliers to squeeze the connecter and loosen the hose. Then, unscrew the water inlet valve and take it off.

Putting everything back together literally just means reversing the instructions.

My washing machine is on a raise service, and I still haven't gotten the outer frame completely back in place correctly, but it's not touching anything or creating any problems. It's really only to safeguard parts anyways, so no worries if it's not perfect -- at least it works now!

Getting only a trickle of hot water and a drip from the cold after cycle is done

I watched the video provided and followed the same steps in taking the washer cabinet off. The valve was very easy to replace and I took the opportunity to really clean and inspect everything. A little tricky to get back together but not bad. My 25 year old kenmore is working like a charm.

Water would not shut off plus long time filling

I simply watched the video that PartSelect has online and it was a big help although my washer was a little different it still gave me the general idea on how to remove the casing. Great website! Thanks PartSelect!

Leaky inlet valve

This is a very easy repair. After shutting off the water, removing the feed lines, and of course unplugging the electricity, all I had to do was: 1. remove two screws 2. flip the control panel up 3.unplug a wiring connection 4. pop two clips that hold the housing to the back 5. lean housing forward 6.unplug wiring at valve 7. remove fill hose 8. remove two screws. 9. toss old valve in the recycling bin (or trash depending on your area) 10. Reverse procedure using new valve. 11. wash clothes.

Cold water had stopped flowing into our washer tub -- hot was fine -- and we checked the hoses to see they weren't clogged.

The PartSelect DIY video made this repair so incredibly easy that even my not-super-handy husband and I were able to do it in about 15 minutes. (And I mostly watched because it doesn't require two people at all.) Every single step that was possibly needed was explained. We actually got the repair right on the first try -- no cussing, no bickering, nothing but a working washing machine in a quarter of an hour. In our book, DIY doesn't get any easier than this. We'll definitely be back for any parts our other old appliances need, and we won't be afraid to try future repairs ourselves. Saved a bundle!
