My washer fills with only a litte water the shuts off and an error code of hf appears
For model number GHW9400PW0
Hello Terrill, Thank you for the question. The Error code indicates an issue with the water filling. I suggest checking the water pressure to the appliance. If the pressure is good, you may have a defective water valve,PartSelect Number: PS11744913. Hope this helps, good luck with this repair!

Tub very slowly fills with water after it is used and clothes removed. In a few days it is full to overflowing. Is this almost certainly the water inlet valve or is there another part which might be causing this. Is there some way to be sure before I order or can I return the part if it does not fix the problem?
For model number GHW9150PW0
Hello David , Thank you for the question. This is a common issue with a defective Water Inlet Valve. You can turn the power off to the appliance but leave the water lines connected to the Valve. If it continues to fill, the valve will nee to be replaced. We hope this helps!

I just replaced my water inlet valve with a new one purchased from you. Now my washer will not turn on. Will a faulty water inlet valve keep the washer from turning on?
For model number GHW9100LW1
Hi Allen, Thank you for your question. The water inlet valve should not effect your machine getting power to your control boards. You may want to check the wiring to make sure you have plugged everything back in the right places. If that is not it, you may want to look at having a look at your door latch or your flow meter. I hope this helps. Good luck with your repair.

Standing water in drum while not in operation. Bad solenoid on water inlet not staying closed.
Turn off both hot an cold water supply valves. Unscrew both hot and cold supply hoses from rear of washer making note of which inlet they came off of. Pull washer out to access screws to remove top cover and water inlet valve. Remove top cover unscrewing 3 torx screws on the rear of the washer. Unplug the 4 wires wires from water inlet valve - make sure you remember which pairs go to which solenoid. Remove 1 phillips head screw that secures the water inlet valve to the back of the washer. Remove water inlet valve. With a pair of pliers loosen the hose clamp and remove the hose from the inlet valve. Take the new water inlet valve and loosen hose clamp with pliers and push the hose onto the barbed fitting as far as it will go. Make sure hose clamp is over barbed fitting securing the hose. Attach both pairs of wires to the solenoids in the same position that you removed them. Position water inlet valve into place and secure with phillips screw. The part that I received did not quite line up with the hole on the rear of my washer so I had to elongate the existing hole on the rear of the washer with a drill so I could secure the water inlet valve as designed. Screw on both water supply lines making sure the hot and cold are screwed back on to the right inlets. Turn both water supply valves on and test looking for leaks. Secure the top cover back on with the 3 torx screws and push washer back into place. Viola! Ready for the next load of wash.

Two problems- Error code FH, Water filling drum when washer off
The Part Select website has some great information provided by customers. I search my error code problem that shut down the washer when filling and found the most likely scenario was a faulty flowmeter.
The other problem happening at the same time was the drum filling with water when the appliance was not in use. I thought the two problems were related, but upon further research decided that the most likely cause was a faulty water inlet valve.
I order the parts from Part Select and I could not believe how fast the shipping was. I just ordered regular ground but the parts got here in a couple of days.
The repair was easy. Remove four screws (need a star bit) from the top lid of the washer and remove the cover. The flowmeter and the water inlet valve sit right on top of the washer. Even with the lousy set of pliers I used, removing the clamps and disconnecting the hoses on both parts was easy off and easy back on. I had more trouble with the electrical leads on the water inlet, only because they were on so securely and I didn't want to rip out the wiring.
All together the repair for both parts took about 30 minutes.
Make sure you turn off the water supply and be ready to mop up a little excess water from the water supply lines when you disconnect them from the washer's water inlet valve.

Washer filling up with water when not in use
Very simple repair:
- Turn off water and detach water supply hoses. (Good to have a bucket nearby to catch water left in hoses.)
- Remove 3 screws from the back of the lid; slide lid back 1" and lift off.
- Valve is mounted just under the lid on the back wall of the washer -- remove 1 screw from back of washer that holds valve assembly in place.
- Remove the 4 electrical connectors (2 black & 2 white) I numbered them with a sharpie so I wouldn't forget how to reattach them. :-)
- Use pliers to squeeze & slide the little hose clamp that holds the internal hose on the valve assembly. Once the clamp is out of the way, pull the hose off the valve assembly.
- Reverse the process to install the new valve assembly.

I ran into a little problem mounting the new valve assembly. The screw hole in the back of the washer did not line up with the mounting hole in the valve assembly. I had to drill a 3/16" hole just to the right of the original screw hole on the back of the washer. Used the new hole to mount the valve assembly, done.

Constant washer Faulting with a FH fault code
This washer had been faulting since it was 1 year old but it only happened 1 to 2 times a year. As the fault problem became more often, I realized it was a hardware or computer malfunction. But what was the problem? Well the problem always was a faulty flow meter. I replace the valve and the flow meter. But I tested the flow meter several times.-- I replaced the flow meter and the valve. And for once in 5 years it did not fault.

Washing Machine Filled with Water When Off
Turned off the water and unplugged the machine

Took off the top of the washing machine by removing three screws along the back side

Removed the hoses connected to the water inlet valve

Removed the hose coming out of the water inlet valve

Marked the 4 electrical connectors

Used plyers to pull the electrical connectors off. Needed to just pull hard. Won't break them off.

Remove the screw that connects the valve to the back of the appliance.

I confirmed this was the part causing the problem by blowing air through it with my mouth. I could tell that the hot water side was not closing all the way.

To replace the part, just repeat the steps above in reverse.

washer filled with water overnight
following the procedure was easy except the alignment of the new valve was off by 1/4 inch and I had to drill an additional hole to reuse the screw for attachment. Piece of cake otherwise.

Small water leak into washer when not being used
Unplugged and disconnected water lines. Removed three machine screws on the back edge of the washer top. Lifted the back and then pulled it to release it from the front. Removed 1 screw from the back next to the hot water connection. Slide the water valve assembly over to the left if you are standing in front of the washer and it pops out. Then slide the hose clamp for the small hose off and use flat head screw driver to pry hose loose. Then use flat head to gently work connectors off. Then reinstall everything in reverse order. Reconnect water lines turn on water and watch water leaks before cover is reinstalled.

I find water in the drum after a few days of non use
Removed the three screws in the back took off the top and swamped out the part. I recommend that the inlet valve is checked periodically by removing the hoses to see if there's any build up on the filter.
