When washer starts the wash cycle it will wash anywhere from 10 to 20 seconds and will stop and fill with more water. It seems like the water level is dropping just enough to make it stop and refill to the level that is selected. It will do this through out the entire wash cycle. rinse and spins fine.
Answer Jeff, A couple of things to check, first the drain pipe, the top of the drain pipe (where the drain hose attaches) needs to be 36 to 38 inches high from the floor. Any thing lower will cause the washer to momentarily syphon the water out of the tub. Also, remove power to the washer, lower the control panel and check the air dome hose 22001619 where it attaches to the water level switch 207362, make sure the tube fits very tightly on the switch spout, there are no pin holes or cracks in the tube and the hose clamp fits tight. A minor air leak in the tube or switch can cause the symptoms you described.
When washer is washing and when gets to rinse cycle the cold water just trickles in.
Answer Hello JC. It sounds like the water valve is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit.
How do I install the water valve part number is AP4023852?
Answer Hello Linda. Turn off water and pull unit out from the wall. Then remove the hoses from the valve and the screw above the housing. Pull out holder and work the wires and hose out enough to unhook and replace the old valve with the new valve. These are not to hard to replace this way.
The pipes in my laundry room make a noise as the washer fills between cycles. Is this because of a faulty water inlet valve? I have replaced this before as my machine is 33 years old! Thanks. Chuck.
Answer Chuck, If the noise is a high to medium pitched whistling type noise, yes the fill valve 205613 could be the issue, you would also want to clean or replace the fill hose screen washers as well. If it is a thumping or banging noise, this is usually the pipes rattling in the wall, that could be due to a change in the water pressure or flow rate, this is referred to as "hammer" and can be reduced or eliminated by installing some "anti hammer" device(s) , available at the local hardware store or plumbing supply outlet.
