Product Description

Water Inlet Valve Specifications

This is a water inlet valve which is used in washing machines. The valve controls and monitors the flow of water into the washer. It has a multi-mount bracket and outlet adaptor. The tools needed for this repair are: a 5/16 nut driver, 1/4 nut driver, and a small flat blade screwdriver. If cold water does not flow into washer, or the washing machine will not fill with hot water, replacing the valve can be the solution. To gain access to the water valve, locate the back of the washer and remove the hot and cold hoses, as well as the whole assembly. Next, remove the four wires and loosen up the clamp. After removing the old valve, replace it with the new one and reconnect the wires and hose. Remember to disconnect the washer from the power source before starting this project.

The washer was making an frightening noise as it attempted to shut off the water
Terrified that the washer water value would blow due to the noise... Diagnosed the problem, ordered the part and it took only 10 minutes to fix. The hardest part was moving the washer in the confined space, which required moving the driver out and sliding the washer at a 45° angle in order to reach the access panel. Once access gained it was straight forward. Step 1 removed fill hoses from supply. Backed the valve assembly out; detached water hose from value assembly with nut driver; detached wires'; value released; added new value and reverse process. Checked for leaks, reassembled fill hoses with new washers (stainless steel hose), ran cycle, checked for leaks, replaced washer in original position Need commend the video producer and repair person in the video. The narrative gave me the confidence that, Yes, I can do this.

Water overflow
The repair itself is fairly simple. However, being 65 years old getting the new valve back into the back opening of the washer and screwed in was a challenge. The clamp on the water connector hose broke and I had to drive to the store to replace it. You may want to consider giving a heads-ups option of ordering hose clamps to DIYers, when you go to order. Also, the instructions that came with the part was not totally accurate. I had to rotate the cylinders outward to connect to the electrical points. But, my machine is pretty old and that may be why. Otherwise, I am very pleased with how quick I received the part and it was exactly what I ordered. My washing machine is back in business. Thank you

Hot water inlet valve was cracked and leaking
Shut off the electricity (pulled thee plug). Working from the rear of the washer. Removed water hoses with Stillson wrench. Removed two self tapping screws with nut driver to get to the assembly. Slipped off the wires lugs one at a time from thee old assembly and slipped them onto the new valve assembly in the same location. Installed the new assembly. Attached the water hoses to the new inlet valves. Note: My washer had the hot and cold valves identified on the washer. The replacement valve assembly was marked hot and cold (H, C.). which was the reverse of the marking on the washing machine. Go by the marking on the washing machine.

The old inlet valve was not shutting off, causing the washer to overflow
I watched your 'how to' video, then repeated the procedure on my own machine. The repair went pretty much like the video. The new valve corrected the problem, and in fact, fills the washer faster than the old valve. I also replaced the water supply hoses, as one started to leak after I jiggled it around during the repair. Very satisfied with the this sites experience.

The water inlet valve was leaking water into the tub - slowly filling it up
After disconnecting the power and removing the input hose connections I was able to remove the valve assembly through the back panel. I then removed the wires from the valve and disconnected the outlet hose. I removed the old valve and replaced it with the new one. Then reattached the outlet hose and 4 wires to the new valve. The assembly then was reinserted into to the back panel and screwed into place. Reconnect the input hoses and plug it in and it's ready to be tested for leaks & used. (I had no leaks, BTW. A little silicone grease on the fittings made reassembly go easier but it's not needed. )

My washer fills slowly with cold water when it is not on. If I put my finger under the rim inside the tub, it is wet. I've got the problem under control by turning off the cold water at source when not in use, but I'd like to fix it, if possible!

Hi lid switch was bad because of solenoid. Part is unavailable so bypassed lid switch. The machine will not fill with water on start up but will do rinse cycle. The water inlet switch is new. Did i louse up something bypassing the lid switch. Thankstom

Hi Tom, Thank you for your inquiry. If your washing machine is not filling with water then you may have check the continuity of the lid switch to see if it is working correctly. A lid switch that is not working correctly can cause this issue. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Hello, the warm and hot water fill for wash cycles but no cold water for the wash and rinse cycles. I removed some sediment in the screens but still no cold water. Cold water flows through the fill hoses...thanks!
For model number A482
PartSelect logo
Hi Todd, Thank you for your question. It sounds like the cold water solenoid might be broken on your valve. You can test the part to see if that is the case, but it sounds like you will need to replace your valve. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Washing machine leaks water onto floor, but only when warm water is used. Does not leak water on cold/cold cycle.
For model number A512
