This happens on all water settings (hot/cold, warm/cold, cold/cold).We only use the full load, regular fabric setting.

The first fill up works great, as does the wash & spin. Problem is the rinse fill up is just a trickle and it takes about an hour to fill. Then the rinse agitate & final spin work fine. (I tried to check the inlet wire mesh strainers, but there are none.)

What would cause only the rinse fill up to just trickle?

Thanks, Tony5657 in TX

Grand master funk,
No fair re-asking my question. :o) Yes, what could cause this? We are using the same "normal" washing machine hoses we've used for years. This just started all of a sudden and is consistentently VERY slow in filling for the rinse cycle. Filling for the wash cycle is fast. Everything else works fine except the rinse fill.

Rinse uses only cold water ..
during Wash fill, if set for Warm (or hot) Wash, there may not by much cold water entering..

OK I apologize, I just set the machine to wash using the cold/cold setting and it just trickled. I punched the warm/cold button and it fills fast, probably with mostly hot water. Yuuup, it's the cold water part of the water inlet valve. I need to watch the videos you sent to see if I have enough smarts to install it, and if so, I'll order it from you. Is the Maytag model # LA5000 all you need? Thanks!!!!!!!!!

OK, you convinced me to order the water valve. I watched your videos & see lots of wires of different colors. I have not taken my valve out so I don't know how many wires I have or the colors. Regarding your new valve, how will I know which of my wires plug on which (the correct) contact? Will my old water valve look like the new one you send with the same number of contacts so I can just plug my wires 1 by 1 on to the new valve? My inlet connections are one on top of the other with cold on the bottom. (Maytag top loader Model LA5000)

As you know, I don't know what I'm doing & I don't want to order something that I cannot figure out which wire to plug on which contact.

Thanks for your help.

If you take the hoses off your water valve and clean the screens you might not have to replace the valve. Give it a shot.

My old water valve inlets had the screens removed. It's now hanging out & the inlets are vertical with - Hot water inlet & valve on top & Cold water inlet & valve on bottom. I have 4 wires, 2 white, a blue & an orange wire. The water discharge hose from the valves connects on top. Looks like the picture you sent with the #009C03A sticker on it.

Regarding my old valve, both of my white wires are connected to the hot & cold valve connectors farthest from the water inlets. The blue is connected to the cold water valve connector that's closest to the cold water inlet. The orange is connected to the hot water valve connector that's closest to the hot water inlet.

Does your new valve set have this orientation where I can wire it exactly like my old valve, described above? Hot water inlet on top, cold on bottom? Will both of my white wires go to the connectors farthest from the water inlets?

If so, this seems like I can do it. If not please describe how it should be wired.

Thank you for your patience & your help!!!!!!!!!!!!! Tony5657 in TX

I know I've asked lots of questions, but my previous posting, (see above), contains my final ones. I humbly ask someone's assistance before I order. I know nothing about wiring & I don't want to "fry" anything because I wired it wrong. Thanks................

A few days ago I received the new water valve I ordered from you. I installed it effortlessly, thanks to your help and the videos and the washer now works perfectly, with all water settings. Without your help I wouldn't have had a clue even where to start. I thank you and my son thanks you. (It was his washing machine.) Thanks for a great site, people and business!!
