Slow fill up. How do you clean water valves?
Answer Undo the hose on the faucet side and undo the hose on the valve side and pop out the screens. You can use a small amount of white vinegar and hot water to soak them clean.

No cold water, probably water inlet valve? This is a red body one, trying to reinstall cold on top of hot on outside panel, but valve is marked opposite. Any suggestions?
Answer Hello Jeff, the correct water valve for this unit is 285805. The cold side generally is on the right side of the unit or in this case it will be cold on top and hot at the bottom. Hope this helps!

Hello, my washer started having a small drip right above the tub. There was no water on the floor. Do I need to order the water inlet valve?
Answer Hope, Yes, you're going to need to replace the fill valve 285805 . Water dripping into or onto the tub assembly, is an indication of a faulty diaphragm or plunger inside the fill valve. This could be due to sediment in the water line, or mineral deposits in the water. It will get worse, eventually so you probably need to replace the valve as soon as possible.
