Question and Answers

Q:

Water barely tricking in

A:

Washer fill problems that repeat may need a second look as to cause. While you wait for the expert to review your model you can check the two links below for additional help and ideas if you like. The first is actually a Kenmore washer answer but it does cover many of the same things that may need checking for this issue. The second link is troubleshooting from another web site for a Whirlpool washer like yours. Hope some of this information helps get that water flowing.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on your symptom and details the water inlet filter screens are likely restricted. Unplug the washer and turn the hot and cold water supply off. Remove the hot and cold fill hoses from the back of the washer. Look inside the water inlet ports on the water inlet valve for any debris. Use a small pocket screw driver and gently scrape the debris out and then flush it out by spraying a little bit of water into the ports. Before reconnecting the hot and cold fill hoses, place the ends of both hoses into the basket and hold them there while turning the hot and cold water supply valves back on to confirm good water flow and to flush out any debris from inside the hot and cold water lines before reconnecting the hot and cold fill hoses back onto the water inlet valve.

If water continues to trickle in, replace the water inlet valve providing the water supply is okay. The part number of the water inlet valve is 285805 and it's available at Sears PartsDirect NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing your washer.

I added a YouTube video showing how to remove and replace the water inlet valve.

Thanks, Joey, for responding. We checked the hoses and water pressure is good. There was no debris either. I do think it is the inlet valve again that needs replacing. I spoke to a repairman here locally and he said that the universal part or whirlpool was not working very good as he has had to replace them with a GE water inlet valve. He said the GE valve would fit the whirlpool model; is that correct? I looked up the GE model and its slightly different and about half the price of the whirlpool valve. If I use the GE valve is the part no WH13X81 the correct one to buy?

A:

Grace: The GE water inlet valve and the Whirlpool water inlet valve is most likely made by the same manufacture. I can't be certain but the GE valve WH13X81 will likely fit and work.
