If the valve is humming but not opening to allow the water to fill, the voltage to the valve is probably lower than designed since the valve is new. Do you have a meter to test the voltage at the valve as it is supposed to be filling but only hums?
That voltage is not correct. Are you reading it with the wires connected?
The voltage rating is stamped on the side and should be 230 VAC.
It must be connected or the reading will be incorrect. It should be a 230 VAC valve solenoid according to specs. Just post back what you find, thank you.
Okay, so it is getting voltage but no water is flowing through it?
