I have a Roper Washing machine that is about 18 years old. The model number is RAB4132HQ0. Cold water is not coming into the machine. Hot water works fine. What should I look at first? And if it would need a part, are they available for a machine so old?

Hi,

Yes, the water inlet valve is still available.

Reverse your fill hoses so we can make sure the problem is the water inlet valve. So HOT will go on COLD, and COLD will go on HOT. Then see if when you have it on COLD the HOT comes out. If so, then you will need to replace the water inlet valve.

Here's the water inlet valve for your model you can order:
Water Inlet Valve 285805


There is a video in the part link that shows HOW TO replace it.

Let us know what you find.

Thanks for your response. Well, my husband and I reversed the hoses. When I put the fill on hot, cold water came out, and when I put the fill on cold, hot water came out. So that means that we need the water inlet valve, right?
