I had a problem where my machine is not filling with cold water. I replaced the water inlet valve and it worked until I connected the body and put it back in place. Now the machine is still not filling with cold water. What do I check next?
Answer Yvonne, You'll need to check the wiring harness W10121436 and the connections to the fill valve 3979346, especially where the harness passes between the washer top panel and the rear panel. Make sure the harness is inserted through the cut out in the top, and not pinched between the top and the rear panel.
No warm or hot water. Even with the knob on hot water comes out cold but seems to be full strength flow.
Answer Hello Richard. This valve uses a thermistor and will not bring in the water as you set it, but brings it in as needed. Most wash cycles will be with cold even when set to hot. If you think it is not working right, and the temp switch is good, you will need to order and replace the valve on the unit.
No warm water. I get cold full flow. I get hot much reduced flow. Checked flow from inlet hoses fine and equal lots of flow. Screens clean. Suggestions.
If you are getting good water pressure from the hose and the screens on the water valve are clean but only very little hot water comes into the unit then you will want to replace the water valve.
I was given a whirlpool washer because mine quit working. I was told that you had to manually change the cycles on the machine, but when I tried to use it the cold water continued to run. So, I shut off the cold water and proceeded to use the washer with hot water. After initial filling, and agitation, the washer would not fill because I had shut off the cold water. In order to fill, I needed to turn back on, and then off after filling. Does this seem to be the problem with my washer? Water Intake valve? What's the chance that's the problem, if I order this part?
Answer Hello Stella. Based on the information you provided, for the timer not advancing, replace the timer. For the cold water issue, replace the valve.
When water come in both hot&cold I get very little & it pulsates quickly ?
Answer Hello Joe,
You will want to check the screen inlets on your water valve to make sure that they are not clogged. If clogged then you will want to clean them out. If not clogged then you would want to replace the water valve 3979346.
