The inlet valve is letting water when the machine is idle. Getting access to the machine is a royal pain so can anyone advise what the part number for the replacement valve is?

Is the valve serviceable in the case of not shutting off fully or is it a definite replacement. If the latter & dependent on cost I may just replace the machine.

Edit
Should have Googled first. I just assumed that JL wouldn't be listed as a manufacturer. Seems to be part no. 50297055001 which is anything up to £50. :cry:

So if the valve can't be serviced I think I'll bin the machine.

Hi

There is more than one valve for that model. Can you post up the PNC or Prod no. usually found on the inside the door.

If valves fail replacement is the best way.

Thanks Dave. Just need to decide whether to repair or replace as I've never really been happy with the JL.

It functions well enough apart from a noisy bearing but the two things that have always annoyed me are the physical size & the alarm. The depth of the machine means it sticks out well beyond the kitchen worktop & is further space hungry with a bowed front & a protruding door.

I know the alarm can be switched off but it's very useful to prevent excessive creasing when you've forgotten a cycle is due to end. But I only need it to sound once, not every 10 seconds!

noizy bearing can be repaired but its a big job as the whole tub has to be removed

sticking out. well this is getting more normal, as customers want bigger loads, and to get the drum bigger, they can only increase depth

Part ordered for now while I give it some more thought. But at least I can do that without worrying about the valve failing completely & flooding the place...

Thanks for the help guys.

 No water into your washing machine?

If your washing does not fill up with water then it is likely that your water supply is faulty or the water fill valve in your machine is. Find replacement water valves in our store including many low cost compatible fill valves for all major brands such as Hoover, Hotpoint, Beko, AEG and more
