Question about Admiral AW22 Top Load Washer
The hot water barely trickles into my washing machine. I removed the old rusty and sediment filled screen inside the hose connection at the back of the washer and placed a new screen where the hose connects to the water valve at the wall. This DID NOT solve the broblem; still barely a trickle of hot water. What could the problem be? It appears that it lies within the washer!
Check the hose at the end where it connects to the washer (the inlet valve unit). There may be a screen there also that needs to be replaced or cleaned. If not then the hot water solenoid valve is probably gunked up with the same type of stuff you found in the filter screen. You may be able to clean it enough to get it to work but replacing it is just as easy and not very expensive. (Even cheaper see if you can salvage one from an old machine at the dump or that someone has left at the curb--the units are very standard across many manufacturers in the tU.S.) Both the hot and cold water valves are in the same unit.
