Took back loose. The new water valve was reversed compared to the old. Hot on top cold coil on bottom. With hoses connected tested new valve worked fine. Put back, back on machine. Would not turn on. Turned one valve electric connector around and it worked. Followed agitator instructions which were very easy. The grease to put on the bearing does not come with kit and not offered for sale but u tube instructions say to use. I installed dry as it feels like tephlon. Probably dont need it. Well see. Generally very happy with my repair. Water never ever filled so fast.
