This clothes washer is 35 years old and runs like a champ. I did notice a bit of water below the left rear and assumed that a hose was leaking. I let it go for about 6 months, until I could fit it into the "to-do" list. During that time, the hot/cold water intake valve died. I ordered the replacement hot/cold valve a month ago but noticed, upon removal of the valve, that there was significant water drip evidence around the electrical valve solenoids. The water drips caused the valve to die. Drips came from a clogged injector hose air break directly above the valve. Replaced all hoses and water level vacuum air line. Very easy process. The front drops off with two screws. The lid is off with two screws. All hoses easy to R/R. It took about 2 hours to complete. All replacement parts were perfect. My belts are fine so I'm ready for another 30 years of service.

I opened the front of cabinet (2 philips screws at bottom corner with short screwdriver. Then took out 2 cap screws that hold top on with a 3/8" deep socket and ratchet. Once in, I removed the 3 hose clamps that hold the injector and hose in place and removed both pieces. I put the injector together and put it in and clamped it back in. I put the the seal on the tub end of the hose and installed it in the tub, then clamped the other end again. I ordered the seal separate but I wouldn't have had to since one was included with the injector hose. I reused my old hose clamps since they were in good shape. With that I closed up in reverse order. I could have gotten the parts cheaper from another online souce that I found later. Other than that, PartSelect worked great.
Found the 35 year old Water injector hose was dry, brittle, and cracked. Found the new part online at a reasonable price, but was unsure if the seal came with it or not. At $3 it was worth the gamble to buy the seal. Turns out that it did come with it so in another 35 years, I'll be ready ;-) Simple replacement of the hose, one hose clamp and fitting the lip of the new seal into the hole in the top of the tub. Access was gained quickly by removing the front panel (2 phillips screws) then removing 2 sheet metal screws in the front top corners and swinging the hinged top upwards. Piece of cake.
This new injector hose was much better than the original part which was plastic and had cracked with age and flexing the now one is rubber and should last a long time. The part, although it wasn't clear, came with the seal.The only trick to installing it that I came across was with the hose clamp. I could not get the clamp over the hose once in place so the trick was to get the clamp in proper position on the hose and the put the hose over its barb (it will go with some careful "fenagleing"), you can't get the hose clamp to move after you put the hose on.
