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!

Water would not shut off after filling for cycles

I found the helpful video, after a bit of a struggle removing rear panel from machine!! I determined the problem of being the water inlet valve from prior troubles on a machine.
I removed the screws from bottom of rear panel,then the Phillips screws from the back of control panel. bumping the control panel towards the front of the machine dislodges it from it's slots. the control then tilts back on plastic hinges, exposing the clips that hold on the rear panel.Those clips are pried up and removed. dis connect the wire harness to control panel. A similar screw as the first removed at bottom hold the inlet valve on the panel.. two simple wire terminals are pulled off as well as a small water line. I did not remove the entire cabinet front as shown in the video as space did not permit it. Still easily reached. the reverse was done to install. The machines are heavy, do get help there.
I did not have it. Be certain to shut off water supply before beginning. Also, I forgot to reconnect the wire harness to control panel. you wont,RIGHT.

Wasn't flowing cold water effectively

To Whom It May Concern:

I had issues with my washer not flowing cold water very efficiently.
I was convinced I was going to have to spend at least $200 to get
someone to fix it or buy a new unit. My friend showed me your site
and videos. I quickly found the part I needed, had full confidence
that my problem would be solved with that part and that I'd be able to
do it myself. I ordered the part yesterday, got it today, and
installed it in under 15 minutes (thanks to the excellent video).
What an amazing customer experience!!

This is the greatest buying process I've every had with an Internet
purchase....hands down!! You saved me a couple hundred bucks and made
it fun and easy for me to fix myself. You guys are the best. No
doubt about it.

Thank you so much, Jason

Washer not filling with hot or cold water

I followed the instructional video that referenced the water inlet valve. The steps I followed were identical to the video I watched. That was extremely helpful. The hardest part was removing the terminal wires that connected to the inlet valve, the rest was very easy. With the new valve installed the washer works exactly as it did before. This site is very helpful, thank you!

Hot water would only trickle in.

I wish I could be more specific, but I had a bit of trouble getting the back off the washer. I removed the control panel on the top of the machine and that allowed me to get to the two clips that secured the back onto the unit. The I removed additional screws on the back until I was able to pull the back away from the frame on the side where the valve was installed. after loosening the screws that held the valve to the back panel I was able to reach in and pull it out of the side. Once that was done, the rest was a breeze. I clipped the hose on the original valve and re-attached it to the new part. Then it was just a matter of reassembling and that went much, much faster than the disassembling. I reattached the water lines, plugged in the washer and it worked like a charm. I was very pleased with the whole thing. Also, I paid for standard freight, but received the part the following day after placing the order. Sweet.

Leak at hot-water inlet

First - I saw the picture of the part on your site. It made all the difference.
Then, I turned off the water supply, unplugged the washer, removed the screws holding the backing plate on the washing machine to expose the valve.
After that, it was as easy as removing two mounting screws, disconnecting the solenoids (just two connections), pulling out the old valve and replacing it with the new.
Pretty simple and a lot less pricey when you can wait a few days for a part to come in the mail.

Water inlet valve would not shut off on cold side.

I removed the faulty valve after unplugging the AC cord. Two screws, the two water hoses were removed, and the electrical connections were unplugged. The old valve could then be rotated so that the clamp on the fill tube could be loosened and the tube pulled off the valve.
The new valve body seemed to be an exact replacement, but the mounting bracked was slightly different and required drilling two new screw-mounting holes; an easy job.
Before securing the mounting plate to the machine, the fill tube and clamp were reattached, and the electrical connectors plugged in. After connecting the supply hoses and plugging in the AC cord, the machine filled with water properly and everything seemed to be back to normal.
I might have been able to use the original mounting plate, but it had been taken to a different location which was too far away to easily retrieve.

No cold water / inlet valve not working

I diagnosed by reversing the plugs on the hot/cold valves. I then removed the valve , cleaned it up and sprayed the electrical contacts with (Corrosion Block) and re-assembled. It still only had hot water. Ordered part, received part next day. When I went to install it I discovered that the (Corrosion Block) had penatrated and all was working! So now I have a spare valve.

Wahing machine overflowed

Opening the washing machine, and removal and replacement of the water inlet valve were both trivially easy. However, getting the cabinet back into place was a bit tricky, only because I did it by myself. It was surprising how flexible and flippy-floppy the cabinet became when free of the structure of the machine. It would have been a huge help to have had a buddy over to just help place the back corners of the cabinet into place. That would have made the whole job totally easy.
