The repair was very easy. Remove a few screws, switch wiring one at a time so I put them in the correct position and replace. The hose replacement was easy at the swicth but a little more difficult at the lower end of the tub due to limited space. Overall an easy job and now it works fine!

Unplugged the electrical plug from outlet. Disconnected the water hoses after I turned off the water supply. Using a screwdriver, popped up the washer top. Using needlenose pliers, I removed the wired from the defective valve, and removed the hose that feeds water into the tub. From the back of the washer, I removed th screw holding the valve in place. Reaching inside the washer, I removed the defective valve. I attached the electrical wires and hose to the new inlet valve prior to installing the valve. After installing the valve in place, I inserted the screw in the the valve from the back of the machine. I then reattached the hot and cold water hoses, closed the top of the washer, turned on the water supply, and plugged the machine back into the electrical outlet. I turnd the machine on, then off, and the water was no longer dripping into the machine. Problem fixed.
I took pictures at different steps in case I forgot how it was assembled. Unplugged the power, turned off the water hoses, unplugged the hoses, pulled the washer out, took of the access panel in the lower left hand corner, took of two tec screws that hold the water valve in place, removed the four wires that were attached to the water valve, removed the water hose attached to the water valve, reattached everything to the new water valve. The only difficulty is the access panel is a bit small
found repairs on the internet. And my husband followed the repairs and the washer works wonderful thanks.
Replace valve by prying up the lid it is much easier than the small square entrance on back side bottom
Took out the two top screws out that hold the top down on the back so you can lift the lid up. Removed the cover plate on the back. Take out the screw that holds the valve in place. Reach up through the access panel and undo the to clips that hold the hose and wiring. Lift the lid up and pull the unit up and remove hose and electrical connections and put back in reverse order. Very simple to do.
Always check the basics first!Mistakenly replaced the water valve (even though it was buzzing idicating it had power and showed 110V across terminals). Assumed the water lines were working. Turned out to be a clogged cold water line (safety valve clogged). Replaced both lines for good measure, machine working fine.
first I thought there is a problem with with hoses.problems like filter or hoses blocked.after I opened the hoses they were fine .Water was going out with power .Then I opened the valve connected to the hoses . I checked these hoses withe help of a 12 volt battery . the valve was not opening so I came to the conclusion that this part is broke.is not easy to change this part.Small place and hard to unlock the hose inside .They could design this much easier with just using longer hose.But I think then nobody will call service dept.
I used a screwdriver to release the front side of the waaher top from the clips and tilted the washer top back. I then released the hose from the water valve and took out the mounting screws at the back. Replaced the valve and hooked everything back up.
Researched "trouble shooting guide" Parts Select Website--2 possible part failures - (1)--water fill valve inop-per Parts Select Web - 74 percent change of this unit failing.(2)--pressure line fractured - 24 percent chance of this unit failing...... Ordered both parts from Parts Select -Replaced water fill valve (possible solenoid failure--(although a little difficult to get at valve replacemnt was easy - total porcess took a little less than an hour).Needless to say - problem solved with valve replacement, this machine should be "good" for at least another 5 years.Thanks for your kind help and most important - the easy to use data...........Spence MerrellDayton, Nevada
We replaced the valve in the washer that feeds the hot and cold water to the wash/rinse cycles. The replacement was not simple only because you have limited space to work in as the back of the machine does not come off other than a small door in the back or by removing the top. We elected to work in the small space but were able to replace the part within a short period of time and the washer is now working again.
removed old valve bought new one put it in saved money
I took off the back cover and it was a fairly simple repair, it just took a little time to fit the piece properly as there is little room to move tools and hands. Great diagrams on the website to ensure properly ordering. Fast shipping.
My husband did the repair quickly and problem solved. The only difficulty was that the water valve was in a tight spot. Overall, if you are mechanically inclined and have the right tools this is do it yourself project.
