How do I test water fill valve solenoid? How do you test black part of water fill both hot and cold solenoid.
When you start the cycle of the unit, to test the valve you would need to check for 120 vac at the connection of the water valve. Depending on what you have the temperature set for will determine which valve will be open. The black part of the water valve is the thermistor in which you will check it for resistance.
How to take the top assembly off to remove water inlet valve?
Answer Rudy, you do not remove the top, you have to remove the lower cabinet. 1. Unplug washer or disconnect power. 2. Slide a putty knife under the right or left corner of the control panel. Lift the corner of the panel and push back on the knife blade to release the clip. Repeat the procedure for the other clip. 3. Rotate the control panel so that the components face the front. Remove the control panel and position it back out of the way. 4. Disconnect the main harness connector from the lid switch connector. 5. Use a screwdriver and unclip the left and
right cabinet spring clips from the cabinet. 6. Rotate the cabinet forward so you can access the top of the tub top. To remove the water inlet/ATC sensor: a) Remove the hex-head mounting screw from the rear panel. b) Lift and remove the water inlet/ATC sensor from the rear panel.c) Loosen the clamp and disconnect the hose from the water inlet. d) Disconnect the cold and hot wire connectors from the water
inlet solenoid terminals. e) Disconnect the wires from the ATC sensor terminals.
My Kenmore washer won't fill up with water, but it will rinse if I turn it to rinse. We tested the water valve and it didn't read anything on the ohms tester. We also tested the sensor switch and nothing. Again we unplugged the one plug with the 2 wires and set the washer to a cycle and no luck. Please help me and do you know if I took it to a appliance store both of the parts do you think they can test them with out the whole washer.
You would want to test for voltage at the water valve when the unit is turned on and calling for water. If you test across the leads on each of the valves and see if you are getting 120 vac. If not then test at the ATC switch for 120 vac going into the switch on terminals W/R to white and going out on for the hot Tan/Red to white and cold yellow red to white. If there is 120 vac going in but nothing going out then the ATC switch is faulty and would need to be replaced.
