Default Water Hammer on Cold Water
Model Number: LA8800XTW0   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My washer (Whirlpool model LA8800XTW0) started water hammer on the cold water only. I can stop the hammering by turning the washer off and back on quickly, but it will hammer again the next time it calls for cold water in the cycle. The cold water flow is also fluctuating, filling slower than normal while the hammering occurs, but flowing normally when there is no hammer. Does this sound like a bad water inlet valve since the flow and hammer occur at the same time?

Hammering comes from air in the lines. Clean out the line from the water valve forward and see if that helps. If not, you can try replacing the valve assembly.

Default Installed New Valve - Issue Resolved.

In the interest of time, I installed a new water inlet valve before trying anything else, and it fixed the problem. It would have been a much more difficult task if I hadnít watched this video that shows how to do everything, step by step.
