Washer - Screens in Hot & Cold Water Inlets / Connections
Washer water inlet hoses have screens that capture debris in the water supply. Some GE Appliance washers will also have screens or plugs located inside the Hot and Cold water inlet valve connections on the back of the washer.
Water Valve Screens:
Unless otherwise noted in the Installation Instructions, these screens on the washer should NOT be removed.
Water Inlet Hose Screens:
Screens in the inlet hoses can be removed and cleaned. These screens help filter out debris in the water supply that could clog the water valve.
Please see the Installation Instructions for your specific washer model for any noted exceptions.
