Washer not running and nothing in it, It fills itself up with water and over flows. What's up with that.  We need to turn the water off every time we finish doing a laundry.

Yikes :shock:  drowned my camping gear.

WH13X86 fill valve if it's a new style.

Generic CW151 fill valve  if it's old style.

I may have the fill valve you need. It is used. It came off the 1998 washer in question. Let me know.

why do people test fate. if its broke replace it, you may get away with cleaning it for a short period of time or you just may in a day or two when you least expect it flood your house. for the price of the valve i'de rather be certain that its not gonna fail. but thats just me i guess

I've been to houses that have had $20,000 worth of flood damage for that very reason.  Once you remove the protective inlet screen, you distort it so it no longer seals the water inlet correctly and the valve is vulnerable to sediment damage, such as getting stuck in the open position.  They realized after the fact how silly it was to save $20 by not replacing the valve only to incurr $20,000 worth of water damage to their house.  Some lessons in life are expensive. :dude:

Threat of divistation and scare tactics, come on now guys.:( I am a certified jet mechanic and ASE auto cert.  I back flushed the screen, it's fine. Te plastic was not damaged, I used CLR to desolve the built up rust and it works great, thanks for your concern.

 From now on please no more cying wolf, just the facts.;)

Thanks

No one was threatening anything.  I was merely relating a real-life service call story for the benefit of others reading this.  If you took it as a scare tactic, perhaps that's your own insecurities coming out.  Good luck with that "repair." 

P.S.  I worked as an avionics technician at Delta Airlines when I first got out of the Navy.  What a bunch of jack-leg hacks!  Present company exempted, of course.  ;)
