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.
Cold water will not work during fill or rinse, inlet screen is NOT clogged, would this be temperature switch or water valve issue?
Answer Hello Stanley homeowner. Test for power coming to the cold water valve. If there is power there, and the water does not fill, you will need to order and replace the water valve on the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Leaking water intake valve?
Answer Hello. You will turn off the power and water to the unit. Then remove the screw and bracket from the back. Make sure the hoses are off the valve first. Then remove the wires and fill line and install new valve into the unit.
