My washer will not fill or rinse with cold water(the water just dribbles out). It works in the warm wash/warm rinse mode but the water is hot i.e. no cold water mixing. Do you think this could be a problem with the water inlet valve?
Answer Hello Pete. It is possible that you may have a faulty water valve. One thing you might want to check before replacing it is to disconnect the water line and make sure the inlet screen is clean and free of debris. Hope this helps.

The video to change the water inlet valve does not match my washer how do I get to the water valve ?
Answer Tim, the video is not that far off. In general, with a few minor differences the process is the same . Remove power to the washer, turn off the water faucets, and disconnect the hoses from the fill valve.Caution: To prevent damage to the control panel, place a protective pad on the cover/lid assembly. To place the control panel in the service position: Disconnect power. Remove the three ¼-in. hex-head screws from
the rear of the control panel.Rotate the top of the control panel forward approximately 1 inch and slide to the right to unlock the 3 bottom locking tabs. Lift the panel up and off the cover panel and rotate down. To remove the water valve: Disconnect power. Disconnect the wiring from the solenoids. Place the control panel in the service position. Remove the fill hoses from the water valve. Note: The fill funnel hose is difficult to remove. Remove the fill funnel hose. Squeeze the clamp and slide it back. Carefully break the hose loose by inserting a small flat-blade screwdriver under the hose to break the seal. Remove the two ¼-in. hex-head screws that hold the valve to the cabinet. Between the video and the attached information, you should do fine.
Water keeps running in washer. What is causing this and how can I fix it?
Answer Hello Bobby. If you can stop the water from entering the machine by turning off the timer or unplugging the unit, you will need to look for a bad pressure hose or replace the pressure switch. If the only way to shut off the water is at the shut off for the water hoses, you will need to replace the water valve in the unit.
