The threaded male coupling on the water inlet valve is plastic and broke during moving.

I installed this part on a stackable washer-dryer unit. First, I removed the hoses (one had broken off already, damaging the cold water coupling). Using a nut driver I removed the screws on both L-brackets in back that help secure the dryer unit to the washer base. Then, I located 2 other screws securing the dryer to the washer base. These were fairly accessible in the recess where the dryer exhaust vent is located, directly above the water inlet valve. I removed both with a nut driver. I thought I would have to also unscrew 2 more screws on the other side of the dryer, but these were not accessible. So I lifted the side of the dryer I had unbolted to get to the water inlet valve. And voila! It lifted up. I placed a 2x4 on edge to keep the dryer tilted open. The inlet valve is attached to the back inside of the washer by a single screw on the Kenmore, which I removed with a phillips screw driver. Reaching inside the back of the washer, I disconnected the water hose by pinching the retaining clip with pliers. Then I pulled the electrical connections off the the hot and cold solenoids and the unit came out. The replacement unit was installed in reverse.

Inlet valve leaked water from supply line(s) back into washer.

Tilted the clothes washer back to provide easy access. Then after scrubbing the floor - which took most of the time of the repair, screwed out the broken leg and screwed in the new leg or SCREW. Easy peasey.

I read the last three peoples experiences when I ordered the part on your on line page. I had already made all the wrong mistakes taking the machine apart, and couldn't beleive how simplified it was on your web site. I had called a local repair shop only to be advised the part would take 4 days shipping and the price of it plus shipping was twice what I paid you. Your part arrived the day after I ordered it on line, Thanks again for being there!!!!!

Let me start by saying, I ordered these 2 knobs for my dryer and they came faster than lightning. I was so glad to know that I could order something and have it within 48hours. KUDOS! Onto the actual item, I got the 2 knobs and since it was just the knobs that broke off and not the mechanism itself, I just took the knobs out of the package and put them on the mechanism by pushing on and VIOLA! , I was done!
If I ever need anymore parts for any of my other appliances I will sure use Parts Select and I will sure tell my friends about you guys too!!
Good Prices.. Fast Shipping.. gotta love it!

This repair took only about 15 seconds to complete. It just involved pushing the new knob on the selector. The provided video should give you the confidence to complete this task.. I invested $11.00 for the part. I would hate to see the cost to have a repairman come and fix this. Worth every penny

The leveling legs on my Frigidaire stackable washer & dryer were broken. They are made of plastic and while moving the unit one of the legs had broke off. I ordered two replacements from PartSelect and received them within a few days. The old legs were removed by screwing them out and then the new ones were installed. Pretty easy installation for DIY. The new legs work great.
