Question:

So when I looked through you side about slow water coming in (cold) to my washer you suggested I clean them, which I did. It worked for a little while and now its back to slow. I checked the water valves and the screens and they are clean. What should I do next? Just give up and buy new ones?

Jacob
Answer:

Hi Jacob, if the screens are clear then it sounds like you need to replace the water inlet valve 285805. I hope this helps!

Question:

Little or no hot water into machine, cold is ok. Screens in hose is clean.

Paul for model number KAWE560WWH0
Answer:

Hello Paul, If you've checked the screens, and if the inlet hoses are not kinked or obstructed you will might have an issue with your water inlet valve circuit. This valve has two solenoids that operate inlets for both the hot and cold water. You can test solenoids for continuity with a multi-meter. If the solenoid has no continuity is faulty. These solenoids are normally not available separately so you will need to replace the complete valve. Make sure you shut off the power or unplug the appliance before performing this test. I hope this helps!

Question:

My washer is taking FOREVER to fill up!! Neighbor said to check and clean the water valves but how would I go about doing that? I know where to find them but I’m not exactly sure what to do with them???

Ashley
Answer:

Hello Ashely, you need to remove the hose that is attached to the faucet and the valve, and then you can access the screens to push them out. we suggest soaking them in hot water with a splash of white vinegar to give them an all over clean. Best of luck with this repair!

Low flow of cold water

Had no problem in disassembling the unit to get to the water inlet valve area. Very little problem installling the inlet valve but had somewhat of a difficult time getting the housing reassembled. There is a good flow of both hot and cold water which has cut down on the fill up time and washing time. Glad it is still working after 15 years. Instructions on the internet were extremely helpful. The delivery time of part was amazingly fast.

No hot water

I followed the great step by step video instructions that you provided. The only difficulty was getting the plugs off the Water Inlet Valve. I had to use pliers (gently) to pull the two plugs off. I would highly recommend PartSelect to my friends.

There was no cold water entering the machine.

I replaced the water inlet valve. First I watched a YouTube video on the repair; surprised to learn that you take the machine apart from the front, not the back.A few tips; pull the washer all the way out first; have extra tools in case you have the same problem as I did that the flathead screws holding the old valve on the back were too tight and had a shallow slot; it took several wrenches and pliers to get them turning. Do NOT forget to hook the internal hose back to the valve before reassembling the machine;and pay close attention to how the housing of the washer fits onto the frame, so that you can more easily put it back together. It would be helpful to have a second person for that step. All said, it was pretty easy to replace the part and I probably saved $200 and didn't have to sit around for a repairman.

Very slow cold water flow

Followed the instructions on the Part Select video which were very clear. I removed control module from top of washer, pulled the washing machine outer housing forward slightly and disengaged the rear closure panel slightly. I disconnected the electrical harness and then I was then able to remove the existing inlet valve. The new valve was then installed and the precess reversed to complete the installation.

Piece of cake!! (The water comes pouring into the machine now)

Washer would not fill hot water

This was a thirty year old Kenmore washer. I removed the control frame, and then removed the two nuts holding the water inlet valve. The valve itself was easy, two water lines and one fill line. Reassembly was problematic as this valve was not exactly the same, I just tied off the valve to the water lines so it would not move.
Of course what took the most time was a run to Home Depot as the hot and cold water hoses were old and I replaced them with new.

Fill did not shut off one morning, resulting in washer overflowing..... bummer.

I own a small, local handyman service as a Father/Son team. This repair is PERFECT for an apprentice to do as a confidence biulder. He learned the safe way to service a machine with garanteed success. This is a job anyone with basic knowledge can easily do with a little on-line homework on their machine. -Jim & Tom W.-

Cold water flow very slow

Our washer's cold water flow became very slow. We were living with just hot water washing for about a month. I had used PartSelect in past and have always been very satisfied with the outcome. So, I went on the site and within a couple of minutes of navigating, had the part (water inlet valve with mounting plate) on order.

I watched the repair video on the water valve ordering page. My installation went pretty much to this procedure, with one exception, I had to use the mounting plate, which I don't think was covered in the video. You have to read and follow the instruction sheet that comes with the part. Therefore, my installation instructions are to a) watch the video, b) get together all the recommended tools described in the video, c) be prepared to use the mounting plate (which uses the same 1/4 nutdriver the video says is needed).

I did the complete valve replacement and had the washer back in place in just at 30 minutes, the tight closet quarters added a bit to this time I'm sure. Working in a basement or open utility room would have been a little easier and quicker. My shortfall though is, I should have done the hose connection check (turning the supply valves back on) before making the move back into the washer space, as once I performed what I thought was my last step, turning on the supply valves, I heard a water leak. This was resolved with another 10 minutes worth of moving the washer back out, disconnecting the hose, removing the rust debris which apparently caused the leak, reconnecting the hose, and this time, checking for leaks BEFORE moving the appliance back into place. I think the time estimate of 30 minutes is good for individuals with moderate experience in appliance repair, and probably good for the novice in conjunction with the video.

There was very little cold water coming through.

I'm a 61 year old single woman, rather handy around the house. I followed the video which was very helpful and everything went together fine until it came to putting the body of the machine back on. I did the repairs all myself which took about an hour but when it came to the machine body I couldn't get it back on there after numerous tries. I had to call my brother and it took him just one try but then he is 6'2" and could look down the little hole to see where the tab was to put it on and hold the body at the same time. BTW - he did inspect my work before finishing the job and said I "did good!" Thanks for the video but could have used some hints as to how to put the body on with some close ups as to what he was doing with his hands when he did it.
