Hello! When I pull the selector knob out to add water. There is a delay to start filling. The delay can vary from 2 seconds to 15 seconds. Would that be the water inlet valve assembly failing? Thanks for your help

ANSWER Hello KB. It could be the valve. The best way to determine this is to test for power to the water valve when you start the cycle, and then see if there is no water when there is power there. If so, you will need to replace the water valve on the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
