Over time, the water inlet valve can crack or short out. If that happens, the control board can’t control the amount of cold water going into your machine. This can result in leaks, overfilling, or no filling at all. Order replacement part #DC62-30312J for your Samsung washer. Then follow these steps to replace the broken water inlet valve.
1. Unplug the appliance and turn off the water supply.
Every repair should start with you unplugging the appliance. Because this repair involves the water lines, turn off the hot and cold water supplies before you start.
2. Access the water inlet valve.
Go to the back of the machine and disconnect the cold water inlet hose. Use pliers to loosen it and then remove it by hand
After that, locate the water inlet valve towards the rear of the machine. Every model has a slightly different configuration, so take a picture of the wires. This will give you a guide for reassembly.
3. Remove the old water inlet valve.
First, remove the wires on the cold water inlet valve. Compress the clamps on both connected outlet hoses so you can wiggle them down away from the valve. Then pull the hoses off of the valve
4. Install the new water inlet valve.
Push the new valve’s inlet through the hole in the rear panel and attach it with the two screws. Then slide the outlet hoses over the two ports and tighten the clamps over them. Use the picture to connect the two wire harnesses to the correct terminals on the inlet valve
After that, slide the top panel along the rails until it locks into place in the front groove, then retighten two screws on the back. Reattach the cold water inlet hose to the new inlet valve
Plug in the washer and turn on the water supply
