Most likely the water inlet valve screen (key #17) is restricted or the inlet valve (key# 18) itself needs to be replaced. Turn the cold water faucet off and then remove the cold water fill hose from the water inlet valve from the back of the washer. Lay the end of the hose in the tub of the washer and turn the cold water faucet back on to confirm good water pressure and good volume of flowing water is coming out of the hose. If the water flow and pressure is good, replace the water inlet valve on the washer. Here's a video on repalcing the water inlet valve. NOTE: First, disconnect the power cord from the outlet. If you need to replace the water inlet valve it is part nubmer 285805 priced at $30.66. You can purchase the part at www.searspartsdirect.com . I hope this information helps. Thank you for choosing Manage My Life.

A:

I can not provide you with a complete service manual but I can provide the part of the manual that pertains to the problem you are having.

Next I advise you to unplug the washer.

The image below shows how to raise the console and remove the cabinet. This will give you complete access.

If you can reply with the problem you are trying to fix then we may be able to provide the help you need to resolve that problem and some additional images and step by step.
