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!

The water keep running and over flow.
Answer Hello Kevin. 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.
Code F then H blinking. What's the most probable cause?

Can the water inlet valve be installed with the solenoid facing down. The original GE part they are facing up but are very expensive. I can buy an identical part with the valves turned down for 1/4 the price. thanks
The valve can be installed with the coils in the downward position but it is recommended to have them upright. This is for the purpose of, if there is a leak the water would drip onto the electrical connections.
