My machine fills with water even when not in use. Water inlet valve or pressure switch? Thanks.
Answer Hello Bill. Based on the information you provided, the water valve is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit.
My washer won't stop filling with water. It overflows.
Answer Hello Alberto,
You need to start the machine. While it is filling, unplug it from the electrical power receptacle, (wall outlet). If the water continues to fill the machine, the water valve has failed and will require replacement to restore normal operation. If the water stops coming in, the issue is an electrical/electronic issue in the machine. This is normally the pressure switch, the timer has a set of contacts welded or stuck in the closed position, or a stuck relay on an electronic control board.
I can only wash on small or medium loads. On large, the water over flows out into floor. What part will I need?
Answer Hello Lea,
In the case of an over fill, you may not need any parts at all. If the tub end of the pressure switch hose is stopped up with lint and detergent residue, you can actually remove the pressure switch hose off of the pressure switch and blow through it. If it has resistance that "pops" away when you blew on it, it solved the problem. You could also have low water pressure to the water inlet valve. This can be caused by the screen in the water valve being stopped up with mineral deposits and sedimentation from the water supply. If cleaning the screens doesn't solve the problem, you may have to replace the pressure switch 134497500 or the water inlet valve 134190200 as one could be failing. To determine if the water valve is at fault, start the machine filling with water and unplug it. If the water goes off immediately, the pressure switch will be at fault. If the water continues to fill but starts filling more slowly until finally shutting off, the water inlet valve is the component at fault.
Checked lines, water going to washer full, but trickles into washer. Water valve?
Answer Hello Dennis,
You need to turn the water off and remove the supply hose from the rear of the unit. Look inside the hole the hose was on and see if the screen is stopped up. If so, gently remove it with a small screwdriver and clean it. Be sure to put it back in so the water valve won't be destroyed by mineral deposits and sedimentation from the water supply. If it isn't stopped up, remove the other end of the water hose to make sure there isn't a screen in that end since some installers will put one in there. If it wasn't stopped up on either end, the water valve 134190200 requires replacement. If it was stopped up, cleaning and reinstalling the screen will restore normal operation.
Is there another model I can use instead of this one that would work?
Answer Hello Freddy. No, according to the manufacture. 134371220 is the only valve for this unit.
Can I use Frigidair 134190200 inlet valve to replace 131900200? What are the differences?
Answer Hello Ken. No, the solenoids are different on the two valves 131900200 and 134190200. You will need to use the one your model number calls for.
My front load washer was working fine one day, then the next would not fill with water. The door locks and the "door lock" light activates. I hear an electrical hum when the washer should be filling with water. Can you direct me what parts to check?
Answer Hello. If the humming is coming from the water valve, and the water is turned on, then the valve 134190200 may be bad and will need to be replaced. Check if there are screens in the hoses, that they are not clogged. If so, it will prevent water from coming to the unit. Hope this helps.
