The inlet valve acts as a sort of gate keeper, allowing water to flow into the tub when it receives certain electrical signals from the washer. There are three attachment ports on the 5221ER1003A Cold Water Inlet Valve-- bleach dispenser and prewash, three standard hose fitting inlet; when you start up a wash cycle, the machine sends a signal to the solenoid controlling a particular gate. This solenoid then triggers the gate to open so that water can enter the machine There are two major problems that require the replacement of the inlet valve: Filter Screen Problems: it is common for inlet valves to experience problems over time. One of the most commonly faced problems is that of a restricted water flow. This is not the result of improper functioning so much as it is the result of debris clogging up the inlet port. Two things might happen: it will slow the entry of water into your washer; if the build up becomes thick enough, it may prevent water from entering the machine altogether--pressure within the supply hoses grows, hoses begins to leak. When the solenoid is overworked and burned, the electrical signal from the machine cannot trigger the opening of the valve in the inlet valve. After the washing machine starts, it enters the washing tub without water. Please check the washing machine carefully before purchasing this product.
