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.
My washing machine sometimes does not stop filling sometimes. I have to switch to spin cycle couple time then start over to get it to work proper. Would it be the inlet valve or something else?..
Answer Hello Scott. 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.
Replaced injector valve and nozzle twice. Water still backs up and runs out top of sleeve. Hose is clean. Does this on warm setting. Seems like water is coming in faster than hose will carry it out. Does water valve regulate amount of warm water flow?
Answer Puzzled, The increase in water and flow, when warm water is selected, is due to both the solenoids being activated, and this is "normal". No, the valve does not regulate the amount of warm water flow. There are a couple of things to re check. Make sure the nozzle is installed and seated properly into the valve. Check the interior surface of the sleeve 22213057 make sure it is clean of sediment, deposits and debris, maybe replace it. Check that the hose from the sleeve to the inlet nozzle is not twisted, kinked, etc. and the inlet nozzle is properly installed and seated in the tub cover. The injector assembly can handle more water pressure and flow than the fill valve can produce.
May 1984 Maytag LA511 top load washer is filling up very slow with water, hot or cold. It does fill up and then works well on all cycles, but initial fill and rinse fills slow. Any suggestions on how to repair would be appreciated. Thanks, Stacey
You will want to shut off the water supply and take the hoses from the back of the washer and check the screens inside the water valve. Make sure that the screens are not clogged. Also check take the hoses from the supply and check to make sure that there is no clog there. If there is no clog then you would need a new water valve as long as water pressure is good.
