HERE IS A QUESTION WHEN THE NEPTURN FRIST CAME OUT I HAD ONE AND IT WAS FINE THEN LAST YEAR I SOLD THAT ONE AND GOT A NEW ONE.. ITS FINE BUT RATHER NOISY.. SO I FOUND ANOTHER ONE THAT IS ABOUT 5 YERS OLD ITS A MAH4000 THIS ONE I TINKERED WITH AND ITS JUST FINE.. NICE AND QUIET SO IM GONNA SELL OFF THE NEW ONE AND KEEP THE 5 YEAR OLD IN THE HOUSE FOR MOM TO USE.. THE PROB I THINK IT HAS IS THAT IT FILL VERY SLOW.. THE FIRST ONE AND THE NEWEST ONE FILLED RATHER FAST. BY THAT I MEAN THE WATER FLOW INTO THE MACHINE WAS STRONG AND FAST .. BUT NOT THIS ONE .. DO YOU THINK THE INLET VALVE ASSY IS CRAPPED OUT??
ANY IDEAS ????

It could be that the valve is partially plugged with calcium and junk. Did you make sure the screens are clean at the hose connections?

THE SCREENS WERE CLEAN AND I DIDNT SEE OR FEEL ANYTHING STUCK IN THE HOSES EITHER TO THE BACK OF THE MACHINE OR INSIDE THE MACHINE I SORT OF THINK THE VALVES ARE CRAPPY OR WEAK

I have one about the same age, now I believe there are 5 valves for controlling the input of the water at various stages of the cycle . 1st is the fill slow in all temp modes, hot,cold,warm. If so I would start with the final output valve, since this is where all the water has to go through to enter the tub. Hope this helps. Jon

I think the fill valve is an assembly...
