Question and Answers

Q:

hot water isn't entering machine when selected LXR6232EQ0 Whirlpool Automatic washer

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

If you have the temperature switch set to Hot/Cold and you start a wash fill and not a rinse fill and you hear a humming sound and hot water is entering, the water inlet valve assembly is likely faulty or the inlet filter screen is restricted. I would shut the hot water supply valve off and then disconnect the hot fill hose from the back of the washer. Place the end of the hot fill hose in the basket and then turn the hot water supply valve on and confirm hot water flow. If you have good pressure and volume, look inside the port the hose was connected to and see if the filter screen is restricted with debris. Do not remove and leave the filter screen out or it could stick open and not shut off.

If no hot water enters, and you hear a humming sound from the water inlet valve, the water inlet valve will need to be replaced.

In order to access and replace the water inlet valve assembly, the washer cabinet must be removed from the washer base. I added an image below showing how to place the control panel in the service position and how to remove the cabinet. NOTE; Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing.

The water inlet valve assembly is part #285805 which can be ordered from Searspartsdirect.com. 

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Q:

lxr6232eq0 whirlpool washer water level control switch.

A:

Thank you for your question. I am sorry you are having problems with the water level switch. From your description you either have a bad new water level switch or your inlet valves are sticking open. Try this, start a cycle and when the water level gets high, unplug the washer. If water continues to come in your water valves are sticking open. If not the new water level switch may be bad.  If it is the water inlet, the substitute part number is #285805. If further help is needed, please reply.  Thank you for using Manage My Life.
