Unfortunately, I had started taking apart the washing machine before I got frustrated and found this video. I wasted sooo much time. When I found the PartSelect.com video, I followed the steps exactly and it was a breeze. I was done in 15 min, tops. Now I will always check PartSelect.com before making any appliance home repairs :) Being able to do this saved me a ton of money, as well. I love this site!

The job itself was easy in general. It took me a little longer because the ground screw was rusted and I had go figure out how to get it off. I used wd-40 and some serious thought LOL. I want to give credit to Repair Clinic on Youtube and some forums for help determining the problem and being able fix it.

The hardest part was moving everything, once the cabinet was removed from the washer replacing the switch for the lid was easy. Good for another ten years...

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!

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 would not run or just drip into tub.

I watched the video provided on-line when I ordered the part. When the part arrived, I did just what the video showed to do. The mounting bracket was a little different style than what I took off, but holes lined up for the screws. I didn't have much space to do the work, such as tipping the outside body of the washer forward to get to the back panel, but after wrestling with it a short time I managed to get it opened enough to make the swap of the inlet valve. Hooked everything back up, turned on, checked for leaks, and it was a perfect repair. And a woman at that...

I installed the inlet valve, and it still overflowed. Then I connected the plastic hose from the water level sensor that had came off, to the water level selector and it worked fine
