Note that my washer is over 14 yrs old. With the video I was able to make the repair. However, due to the age of my washer, the repair was not a direct swap - there was one simple preliminary step in addition to the video instructions. This preliminary step was described by instructions received with the part. My advise: always read and follow written instuctions no matter how simple they appear to be - it will save you a lot of time.

I followed the instructions from your web site, and it was very easy. I started to purchase a new washer, but after watching the instructions I thought I would give it a shot. I am 67 and this was my first ever washing machine project. Thanks for your service and web site. If I need help or parts in the future, I know where to go. You saved me a lot of $$$.

The most difficult part was getting the back off the washer. The rest was pretty straight forward. My husband did the work in about 45 min. The part was around $20 so I guess we saved at least $200. I thought I ordered the wrong part and called to cancel but the customer service rep double checked and assured me it was the correct item. I received the part within 2 days. I was going to buy a new washer since this one is 20 years old but the plumber said it was a good one, better than the new ones out there. Great service, great selection, great price.

Cold water was slow to fill and making whining noise

I followed the instructions on the video. One difference with the Kenmore model is that the screws were in front instead of the rear of the machine. Still had to pull the machine out to get to the rear to replace the valve. All went smoothly and the unit works like new. Now it takes less then half the time to do laundry. Great parts and timely delivery. Excellent instructional video and instructions. You folks are the best. Thank you.

Cold water filled very slowly

  • Difficulty: Easy

Looked at the instructions on PartSelect - they were very accurate even though my model was slightly different than the one in the video. Took the screws off the top 2 sides, removed the 4 off the back. Then tilted the top part towards the rear of the machine. The next part was really described well - "tilt the cover of the machine back" - I did but I was glad that my son was holding the rear panel because you really disengage the cover from the rear panel and it is a little flimsy. Ater that, the removal of the old part and install of the new was very simple. I did mark the hot water hose so I knew which outlet to put it on. Once I put it back together and tightened down the hoses, it worked like new. GREAT instructions from PartSelect. THANK YOU!

shut off water source,Re route cold water line to hot water line to keep laundry going!! ordered parts, removed back cover using screwdriver. valve is held in place with 2 screws and a screw (5/16"?) in the mounting plate. pinch clamp on bottom of inlet hose and 2-2 prong plugs for power. really couldnt screw up the orientation of plugs and hoses...used self tapping screws to re-fasten the back of washing machine cover to avoid lining up the holes...hack!

Following the very simple instructions from the internet, I moved the washer from it's space next to the dryer, removed the outer shell, removed and replaced the water inlet valve, turned on the water, checked for leaks, reinstalled the outer shell and the job was done. Total time from start to finish, approximately 20 minutes and this repair was made by an 82 year old man ( a former Marine!). The valve was ordered from PartSelect on the Memorial Day weekend and arrived the following Wednesday. The price, with shipping, was as good or better than any other source that I checked and shipping was extremely fast! I am not associated with PartSelect in any manner - just a very satisfied customer!

Loud squeal when washing with cold water

Turned off the water and power, disconnected the supply hoses. Then took out the two screws in the control panel. Removed the clips holding the back to the main tub assembly. Marked the hot/cold control wires on the valve assembly, then removed them. Pushed back the internal water hose clamp (watch out for water in the line). Unscrewed the old valve assembly and bolted in the new one. Replaced the control wires and internal water hose and clamp. Replaced the clips holding the back to the tub and the screws to the control panel. Replaced the supply hoses and power cord.

cold water came out really low and machine made a fairly loud noise

Follow the video for replacing the part if you're not handy. I watched part of it because I haven't played with (repaired) a washer in a long time. Mark the wire connections before removing them from the valve not critical but helpful. I actually needed the video for replacing the clips.

Hot water stopped flowing and had a small leak

This was a pretty easy repair that only cost about $30 and 20 minutes to do. The video was very useful even though the Inlet was slightly different than the original. Putting the housing back on was the toughest part. The one thing they failed to mention is that you may have to unhook the outlet on the washing machine depending on how much room you have to work. I've never worked on a washing machine before so I was very happy with the ease it took to replace this part and that the diagnosis was correct. I bet this would have cost over $125 to have a repairman do it. I also found it easier to do with two people. We simply unhooked the hoses...remember which is which. It might be a good time to check and replace the hoses too. My cold water hose is in bad shape so I know now to replace it soon. After unhooking the hoses and the outlet...and unplugging it, we moved it to an open area to work on. Simply unscrew the control panel and flip it back, then uncl the wires to the lower part of the machine. Unclip the hinges and pull the body off. Then unscrew the old inlet, unclip the hose and the circuits...again remember which goes where but they are color coded. Toss the old one and replace with the new one and reverse everything you just did.
