Almost identical to the instruction video that was sent. Very straight forward. I did not take apart the washer to identify the problem. I was short on time so I took a chance and ordered the highest probability cause of the symptoms indicated by your website. It was dead on; the problem is fixed. Parts were received ahead of schedule. Excellent all around.

Washer was not spinning clothes on 1st spin

After researching possible failure modes and reviewing a video for teardown/access from the control panel and access top down I noticed a lot of 'break dust' on top of the transmission. Shorting out the lid switch and putting my little finger on the drum, it would not spin but the clutch was spinning fine. I ordered a new clutch... Interesting thing when I was taking the clutch out... the gear it was attached to slid right off! After figuring out it was too big to go 'back' into the transmission and reviewing the parts explosion diagram... it BELONGED INSIDE THE TRANSMISSION! So I took the transmission cover off, poured out out the black-ish oil with metal filings in it, put the gear inside, filled it back up with 10W30, put the lid on, added the new clutch while it was apart and finished reassembly. Wow! It spins much better than when it was new. I guess never assume what can happen on an assembly line. Thanks for the great site.

I have had this similar problem with other makes/models of washers so I knew immediately what the problem was. The hardest part was figuring out how the back panel seperated from the front. I wanted the part in-hand before looking on-line. Once I had the Inlet/Mixing valve in-hand and found this website, the ordering was quick and inexpensive. I only wish I would have been able to view the video beforehand to see how the back panel came loose. I would've cut my repair time in half.

Water was still running into the machine even after the wash cycle started

The old one was easy to take off once I figured out how to get the back of the washer off. Then, the new one was on in just a few minutes and the washer is washing fine.

Unplugged the machine and turned off the water, (hot and cold), removed hoses from valve. Removed two screws holding console to top. Removed screws in rear holding rear panel to cabinet. Pulled cabinet out of the way. Disconnected electrical leads from valve solenoids. Used nut driver to remove screws removed valve and mounting plate from the back of machine. Pliers compressed snap ring holding fill tube to valve. I reversed the procedure to reassemble. Most difficult part was getting the cabinet back in it's place. Washer fills like it is brand new!

Unplugged the machine, removed the rear panel and then removed the old water inlet valves. Replaced the water valves with the new one purchased through Parts Select. Installed the back panel on the machine, plugged the machine in and reconnected both the hot and cold water hoses. Tested machine works like a new one again, problem resolved.

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 did a you tube search for "no cold water in washer" and found a video for what the fix is. Afte disconecting the power and water hoses it was Unbelievable how easy it was. Two screws in the back to open it up which I watch on a you tube video which was from part select. Then two spring clamps to open the inside and expose the water valve.. One screw and a hose clip and the valve was out. Did the reverse and put it back together..

Water inlet valve failed.

The training video you supplied was right on. I watched it twice to make sure I understood the procedure. I followed the steps outlined in the video and encountered no surprises. The replacement valve was a perfect match and functioned perfectly after installation. I checked other sources for the price of the replacement part. Your price was more than competative. Thank you for a fine service.
