When water comes in it makes the water lines shake. They say it is the inlet vale. Is there any way I can test it to be sure. thank you
2 things can cause the unit water lines to chatter. The water pressure being too low or the screens on the water valve being clogged. The other thing is the water valve being faulty. Check the water pressure to the unit to make sure that it is good and make sure that the screens on the water valve are clean. If these check ok then you will need to replace the water valve WH13X10023.
The washer starts normally. It fills up just fine, but then only runs for about 10-11 minutes and then drains the water and stops. When this occurs the timer flashes, and you can start it again by hitting the start/pause button, but then it proceeds to fill up again and do the same process for 10-11 minutes. After running the code diagnostics test, I get the code E22, which hints to replacing the water valve. I also scroll the nob and E23 appears. I am unable to run the t08 and t09 tests...is it really the water valve?
Both of these error codes are in association with a fill problem. Here is what you will want to do. Ensure that the manual water valves are fully open. Check if the water strainers on the solenoid valve assembly are clogged. Check for obstruction inside the inlet water hoses. Ensure that the solenoid valves do not leak when the valves are deenergized and the washer is powered down. Measure the coil resistance for both valves, If the range is outside of 1000 - 1250 ohms at room temp then replace solenoid. Normally on the E23 error the valve would need to be replaced.
How do I replace the water valve in my GE washer?
Answer Hello Dana. Disconnect the power to the unit and remove the screws on the back of the top panel. Slide the top back and lift it off the unit. Once removed, you will turn off the water and remove the hoses from the water valve in the back of the machine. Remove the screw securing the valve in place. Reinstall with the new water valve WH13X10023 in reverse order. Hope this helps.
