Product Description

Water Inlet Valve - Cold Specifications

The cold water inlet valve on your washing machine dispenses the cold water and bleach into the washer in the prewash cycle. This inlet valve has a standard hose fitting inlet and 2 water outlets facing 45 degrees to the left. The water inlet valve opens to allow water to enter the washing machine. If the water inlet valve is defective, the washer may leak, fill slowly, or not fill at all. To test your valve, unplug the washer when the symptom occurs. If the washer continues to fill, then your inlet valve is defective. This part is approximately 4 inches long x 3 inches wide.

Hot & Cold Water Inlet Valves Leak
YouTube is your friend for many such repairs. See this link for an overall description:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WuvLuC8x4_s

I had to remove the top panel to determine exactly which valve was leaking. It turned out both hot and cold-water valves were defective.

After unit is unplugged and top is removed, it's a simple matter to remove/replace hose connections and electrical connections. It took me less than an hour to complete the task once parts were in hand.

Again, YouTube is your friend for such repairs.

Washer would not fill with water and a (I E) Code displayed on the screen.
I looked at the video that is on the partselect.com website. The person that I talked to from the website was very knowledgeable about the problem with my washer and he gave me the part number to type in the search box of the website. When I typed the part number in the search box the part showed up and the installation video showed up also. The video is an excellent video. It shows exactly how to do it. I also downloaded the operator manual from the website to look up what the error code meant.

Water was collecting in the machine after it finished its cycle.
Turned off hot and cold water supply. Pulled out machine and disconnected hoses, unplugged power.

Unscrewed 4 screws at back top of machine (holding plastic bracket to cover). Pulled out trays from front where detergent is poured, and removed small screws under trays.

Slid cover back and up. This was the only tricky part. There are pegs that must line up with large holes in cover before you can easily lift cover up. Helps to look from underneath and find pegs on each side.

Using pliers, fully open clamps holding hoses to the inlet valves, and carefully pull off hoses while keeping clamps open with pliers… making sure to keep track of which hose goes to each motor. Take a picture of electrical connectors noting color and sequence of connectors on each inlet valve motor. Pull all connectors off.

Unscrew screws holding each inlet valve to machine. Put new inlet valves in place of old, and screw in place. Reconnect hoses (using pliers to hold open clamps, then slide clamps over tubing and inlet valve connector). Reconnect electrical connectors carefulljng lining up colors of wires and sequence using picture taken in previous step.

Replace cover. Screw all screws back to secure cover. Replace trays.

Cold water inlet valve was leaking where solenoid attaches to valve body.
Hardest part of the job was getting the washer away from the wall. :)
Disconnect power & water
Remove top panel, two screws at back
Remove two screws holding valve to washer body
Use pliers to loosen and pull back spring clamps on three water tubes
Remove tubes by twisting and pulling
Reverse process to install new valve.

I am convinced that the original valve began leaking because I had heard water hammer for years as that valve opened and closed during operation. I bought two water hammer arrestors (less than $30) that attach inline with the inlet hoses and I think that will prevent the problem from recurring.

Old cold water inlet was leaking , as it progressively got worse,it poured.
With my wife's help( 2 shoukder surgeries ), pulled it forward, unplugged power source, turned Both water supplies off.
Removed two phillip screws from each upper ( plastic) holder.
Bumped top from front( works really well if you can use both arms,and with rubber gloves on for traction, or go to harbor freight purchase a glass suction cup) .
I marked ( with a sharpie) the solenoids/hoses,and wires, ( facing front ,right to left,1,2,3.), removed plugs,loosened clamps and pushed them back,gave each hose a twist,and removed them.
Took two screws 5/16 from the back that hold the valve assembly in out.
Removed old valve assembly, put new in place, reverse procedure for assembly. Once all is hooked up,and water dried, I plugged in,turned water on watched for two cycles( you need not stand over it,if it leaks you will know it) to double check, installed top,and we pushed it back in place.
Very simple to do,these washing machines are so easy to work on.
Now we enjoy a dry laundry room,and you can to.

I'm trying to troubleshoot my problem. After running a load of wash, water clears out, no problems. Then if i don't use the washer for a few days, about 3 cups of water fills the washing machine. It's always to aproximatly the same level and it always takes a few days of nonoperation to fill. I'm trying to figure out what to fix.
For model number WM2233HS
PartSelect logo
Hello Jenna, thank you for your question. This issue could be the water valve itself, that is leaking into the washer after the unit is done its cycles. Its possible the valve is stuck slightly open and is allowing water to come into the tub. Or, the problem might be that water is coming BACK into the unit after its been pumped out. I would recommend checking the drain hoses, and recommendations for how the unit is set up to be sure that the hoses are not kinked, or have moved. Sometimes, if the hoses are not installed properly, water can't get all the way out of the hoses then some comes back in. If the appliance was installed properly, and the hoses are clear, not kinked and set up properly, the issue is probably with the water valve for the appliance. I hope this helps!

Washer leaking in the front. What do you think is wrong?
For model number WM2016CW/01
PartSelect logo
Hello David, thank you for your question. The leaking could be coming from one of the water valve, the drain pump, or a hose that has come loose or has cracked or broken. This front load washer also has a large rubber door gasket that can sometimes get ripped and will cause leaking at the front of the unit. I would recommend removing the back panel, and top panel to see if you can locate the leak, then we can provide more information on the parts you would need to fix it! I hope this helps!

Water is leaking out the top of the inlet valves. If i replace the part is there something, like high water pressure, that i should be concerned about damaging the replacement as well?Thanks
For model number Kenmore 796
PartSelect logo
Hi Kevin, Thank you for your question. Before installing the new water inlet valve, you will need to check the water pressure coming from the where it connects to the water inlet valve to make sure the correct amount is coming out. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!
