My cousin scavaged the same part from his old Maytag. It is like a rubber sleeve going over the plastic injector nozzle.
The new part is to replace the one my cousin gave me. Note:
the new one has a thicker and stiffer rubber wall. Until he repairs his Maytag, I won't know if the new rubber valve model (that is thicker) will let water through it into the washing machine. To repair, used screwdriver to remove screws at bottom front panel. Then used socket wrench to remove the bolts (on front left and right side) of the washer top. This allow the top to be lifted and tilted back towards the control panel; and then get easy access to the rubber injector valve. Screwdriver to remove clamp and install easily. (I found out it was the valve broken by turning on the machine and watching the water squirt into the air). No leak now (using my cousin's old Maytag rubber valve). The value bought was thicker rubber, probably to prevent the same "blowout" that my old Maytag valve had.
