How do you replace water valve on washing machine?
Depends on the brand, but generally you will need to turn off the water supply, unscrew the supply lines from the valve on the back of the machine. On most brands, you will have to pop the top of the machine. there is usually a 5/16 screw holding the valve in place. Remove the screw, disconnect the rubber tube (usuallly a spring clamp) and remove the old valve. Install the new valve, making sure to use the screen washer that should have come with the new valve.

What should you do next if you put a new water mixing valve on the washing machine to get more hot water and it didn't help?
Answer . To do what I would have done first... Check the screen at the inlet of the washer to see if it is blocked.
On a washing machine outlet box with valves how can you tell if the existing valves can be unscrewed for replacement or whether they were soldered on and would have to be replaced by a plumber?
Answer . \nif the valves have a place for a wrench to fit, usually they were threaded in. some plumbers still solder threaded valves & you can easily see the solder aroun…d the threads. If the outlet box is plastic, chances are they are threaded in.
Can you use the water drain valve of a hot water heater as a source of water for a washing machine or a laundry sink?
No, cold wter enters the water heater at the bottom of the tank, right where thee valve is.
You can run your discharge pipe from the washer into a laundry tub with the drain put in. After the wash cycle, the water will discharge from the washer into the laundry tub. …Keep the water in there and replace the washer discharge pipe back into the usual drain. Let the washer run it's normal cycle. Take the clothes out and put them in the dryer or on the clothes line. The next step is the tricky part. You have to get a pump of some sort to put the discharged soapy water from the laundry tub back into the washer. This water will still be okay to wash the next set of clothes. I would wash the whites first, though. lol
Usually in back, but it may not be a valve on the machine itself. Look for a faucet with a hose running to the machine. If you are referring to the internal valve that turns t…he water on and off when the machine is cycling, that varies with the make and model of the machine.
A "drain pump" machine uses a drain tube that is higher than the the level of water in the basin and therefore uses a mechanical pump to empty the tank over that threshold pip…e. A "dump valve" drain uses a mechanical valve at the bottom of the basin and simply opens to drain the tank.
If you had said the make and type I would have told you why. -As is , the problem is either the belt, the wigwag, the pump, a loose pipe or the transmission. -Call an applianc…e repairman is your best way to fix it.
That's one of the pickiest things to do. On some washers you can raise the whole top surface to do it, on others you have to take the whole casing off. Look carefully along th…e front seam, where lid sits on casing, you may see two clips. If you do slip a flat screwdriver just into the slit and try to wedge it open. If it doesn't work then you have the other kind, sorry.
perhaps your washing machine is slightly rusty. the water shouldn't be rusty. hope this helps x
Shut the main water off and replace it. Not being funny, but you need to clarify what you mean.
Saving the water is easy enough if you have a large enough container, such as a bath tub. Making sure never to allow the end of the water-out hose is never lower than the top …of the machine[or the machine will empty itself on the floor] attach a grey water hose to the out hose and the other end into your tub. When the machine pumps out the water will empty into the tub,or any where else you direct it.
you open the right side panel of your machine and you should see the piping system. then you try to lick your knee and all the single lady's while bushing your dogs hair (if y…ou don't have a dog cats do fine). if you did this correctly it should work.
Yes ! If it is not fully open,or horizontal. Cheers.....Dave
The washing machine does not heat water. It brings hot water in from the hot water heater. They are usually hooked into the same water supply as your shower and sinks.
That depends on what kind of part you need for your washing machine. If it's the actual drum, or thing that turns, it will be a few hundred bucks, other parts are cheaper.
A washing machine should be serviced if it is making loud noises frequently, or is vibrating more than usual. The average life expectancy of a washing machine is 11 years, so …machines older than that which seem to not be working well should be replaced.
