Clothes Washers and Fill Screens 


W600 screen washers

Here's the solution I've used for many more years than I care to recall <grin> when a washer's installation makes it hard to access the screens inside its fill valve (where the hoses connect). 

Putting a pair of these screened washers up at the faucets makes it a whole lot easier to clean them when they clog (usually only the cold one clogs). Be sure and install them so the tip of the screen's cone points 'upstream' in the water flow. A little dab of silicone-based grease on the faucet threads will make your life easier, too.

If the household's water appears to be carrying a lot of sediment, I'll remove the valve's internal screens, and install a set of these instead (the water supply MUST be screened to prevent sediment from blocking the valve open and causing overflow)

You should be able to find these at your local hardware store, but if you can't, feel free to contact me about a set. I buy them in boxes of 100, and always have them on hand.
