Question about Admiral AW22 Top Load Washer

Hot water barely trickles into washing machine

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!

    Thank you but where is the hot water solenoid valve located????

  • deesaw Aug 17, 2010

    Is the Hot Water Solenoid Valve accessible without, having to remove the back panel of the washing machine ? And exactly how do you remove the old Hot Water Solenoid Valve, and what tools, if any, will I need to do this job ? Is there any other information, you feel, I need to know, before I start this job ? And Thank-you for the help. Donna

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.

Testimonial: "The hot water solenoid valve was the precise problem! Thank you. I told my handy man what the fix likely was and he repaired it for $92. "

    The solenoid valve is the part that the cold and hot water hoses connect to at the back of the washer.

Cold water fills very slowly

It's possible that sediment or a mineral buildup is in the water solenoid valve itself where you connect the hose. Try cleaning its screen, if this doesn't work, replace the part.

Is there a water filter on the washing machine? We've had well problems and the water just trickles in taking 45 mins to fill. GE Adora top loader

There is a water inlet valve on the machine, for cold and hot water. These have screens on them, once they get to much sediment, they will restrict your water severely. These are located on the back of the machine, and they are what your water lines screw into.

Hot water entering machine is only a trickle. It

Check the filter trap on the back of the washer where the hot water fill hose connects to the inlet valve, you wil have to shut the hot water valve off first, then remove the hose at the washer and inspect the little filter screen thats in the valve where the hose screws onto the washer, it probably has trapped enough sediment to restrict the flow of hot water into the washer.
Good Luck !

Hot water is coming out full strenght through hose but coming real slow into machine. It is a kenmore 110 about 20 years old and still working great except the slow hot water filling the tub.

could be your fill valve plugged up with sediment,remove your hose from the rear of unit and look at the screen inside see if it is plugged up!

Slow cold water flow won't go back to full flow

I think the water inlet valve is nearly stopped up with sediment in the screen filter where the supply hose screws to the valve.Cut the water off at the hose and disconnect and look for the screen. The hot water usually doensn't do this because the water has time to settle everything out while it's in the hot water heater.

Rinse water barely trickles out of my washer

Do you fill the machine with hot water only?

If so, this is what I suspect. The filters in the inlet hoses on the back of the washer need cleaning. Remove the garden hose connectors, remove filter, clean, replace.

When filling with hot only you get a lot of pressure thru one hose. When you rinse, the best you can do pressure-wise is cold rinse -- but the cold water filter is going to be more clogged than the hot so it delivers less water.

When you use warm rinse, you get mediium pressure thru both lines, again less water than al hot on filling the machine.
