Start by unplugging the washer. Turn off the water both hot and cold.Move washer away from the wall to gain access to the back of washer. Unscrew the water hoses.Use a small bucket to catch the water in the hoses. Use nut driver or socket set to remove the screws around the inlet valve.After the panel is loose you will have to push the panel in then turn to the side to work the panel out. This is the hardest part. When the panel is free remove the hose clamp and hose. unplug the two wires. unscrew the screw that holds the inlet valve in place then push the valve to the side and remove the old valve. To install new valve reverse the steps.

I went on your web site and printed the instructions given by the first entry after the product description. I had called my friend who is also a handy man and he did the repair very quickly [I helped very little]. The directions were very complete and very simple to follow. MAH5522BW

The video was great. The only problem was getting the spring back on. It was way too stiff, so I put it in a vise and stretched it a bit. It's a bit fussy but your site made it go pretty easy. thanks

I referenced the enclosed instructions, and U tube videos, along with gasket I also changed the bearings for about $40. From local grainger, it seems to have solved problem, thanks for quick shipping,

Unplugged the washer from electricity. Removed door, taking out the Phillips head screws on each hinge. Popped the front cover off. Used 5/16" nut driver to remove the screws that secure the top cover. Removed Phillips head screws in the soap dispenser. Raised the top cover...unhooked wiring to door latch assembly and removed the two screws that hold it in place with a 5/16" nut driver. Installed new door latch assembly. Then reversed the steps to close up the washing machine. On the door itself I removed all the screws on the outside of the panel. Popped the metal clips off the old inner door panel, installed them on the new panel. Put all hardware on the panel reinstalled all the screws and put the door back on the washer.

Purchased the pump from parts select. Maytag wanted 250.00 for the pump!. Followed previous instructions from this site and had no problems. Washer still does not fully drain. Believe the problem is the filter. Maytag either couldnot/would not tell me me where to replace the filter. There is a spare filter taped to the inside of the washer. Maybe it fits inside the tub, above the outlet tube leading to the pump. Will check and see at a later date, unless I see a response on the website. Thanks.
