Shut off hot and cold water supply and removed hoses from mixing valve. I unplugged the machine and removed the screw holding the plate that the valve is connected to. I removed the plate and valve and used my smart phone camera to photograph the wiring connections. The next step included removing the wires, the hose and clamp. Remove the valve from the plate. Reverse the procedure for installation. Make sure that the valve and plate are adjusted as far from the drum to prevent contact when the machine is going through spin cycles. The procedure took about 10 minutes and fixed the problem. You have to love Maytag for their reliability and ease of maintenance.
