For Whirlpool Water Inlet Valve Assembly (Part Number: AP3175369)

Answer or Comment

Upon water fill, if I select the temperature to warm or hot, the water pulses and causes water hammer issues. The screens on the water inlet valve are clean. Both water lines have no issues when the washer is disconnected and I drain into a bucket. The cold water fill is perfectly fine. This only happens with warm and hot filling cycles. Warm water fill pulses between cold and hot water. Hot water fill pulses on its' own. Warm and hot water fillup causes water hammering. Is this a bad water inlet valve assembly? BTW, this issue has occurred the entire time I've owned the unit. My water pressure is within specs.

Volkan for Model Number MVWC300VW0

ANSWER Hello Volkan, The hammering noise is a phenomenon caused by the home plumbing. There is nothing on the unit that can be replaced to stop the hammering sound.
