This is a top mounting style injector sleeve.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
Removed two screws at bottom of front panel and then removed front panel. Then removed two self-tapping bolts (one on each side) holding top panel in place and swung the panel up, out of the way, to expose top of tub and water injection components. Cut off one pinch clamp and loosened screw clamp holding two injector hoses to the injector sleeve. Removed these water injector hoses from injector sleeve assembly which is mounted on top of left side panel upper flange. Replaced deteriorated rubber injector valve, nozzle and the sleeve for the injector (plastic housing containing the injector valve and nozzle). Also replaced deteriorated injector tube seal where injector tube elbow mounts to top of tub assembly. Reinstalled injector hoses with a replacement screw clamp to replace the one cut off. tightened the new clamp and the other, original, screw clamp and checked for leaks. This solved the leakage problem. Secured top panel and re-installed front panel. Hardest part of the task was determining where the leak emanated from but once found and parts ordered, it was a relative snap to fix.

Removed front of machine; then tilted back the top of machine, after removing the two screws in top front. Removed the old parts, trimmed the injector hose which was slightly longer than necessary, put new injector nozzle in ruber injector valve and inserted into the new sleeve, clamping the new hose to sleeve as well as clamping the remaining functioning hose to sleeve. The new sleeve mounting bracket was slightly different from the old one, but I was able to make it work with a small block of wood and two screws. The washing macine no longer leaks, the parts arrived timely, and the price was right. Thanks.
I took the front panel off the machine and then removed the two screws that held the top on. Cut the hose clamps off the hoses and replace the injector sleeve, valve, housing, and hose to tub. I am not sure what the function of this is, other than to inject air into the water before it goes into the tub. Very easy to do if you know how to open up the washing machine.
Your website is wonderful. I read another womans account of how she fixed her machine and then I just followed her instructions...how cool is that!
First I took all the screws out of the side and back cabinet, then tried to pry off the top, after breaking a couple of clips, saw that the front came off with two screws at the bottom, then removed, then two hex head screws to hold on the top, then lift top and saw that the injector was clogged and leaking out the top. If I had read the repair section first, I could have saved alot of time by not removing all the side and back screws. This would be a simple 15 minute job, if you follow the repair guide. Just cut off the clamps, stick in the injector and holder , reclamp and reassemble the washer.
The washer leaked only when i used warm or hot water. I found that the rubber injector valve would get to soft when using hot water,allowing the water to leak through and bubble out and onto the floor. I went ahead and replaced the injector nozzle, injector sleeve and the rubber injector valve. I ordered the parts monday morning and they arrived the next day. Excellent service.
The three parts fit together to form one unit. As has been mentioned here already I'm not sure what purpose they serve. I'm also not sure how replacing them stopped the leak but it did. If it had not stopped I think I could have bypassed the valve entirely with a piece of hose or PVC and had it work just fine.
This happened once before and had I remembered how to get the front door off and lift the top it would have taken me less time. I actually spent more time assessing prior to ordering parts than in repairing once the parts came.One odd thing - it only leaked when the hot water was entering (if the settings were on cold only no leak - no idea why that should be).Anyway, this injector and the rubber housing it slides into get old and clogged or deteriorate. I ordered all the parts and replace them - but probably only needed to replace the plastic injector nozzel and the rubber sleeve it fits into. All good now - no more leaks (until the next time!)
unplug machine ,shut off water supply,Removed 2 lower front panel screws ,raise panel upward "hinge type motion"and removed , Remove 2 self tapping screws from under front corners, removed liquid bleach tube from upper connector ,raise top toward back of machine , place prop "piece of wood" to hold top up,removed 1 screw attaching injector ,now replaced injector assy and install with new hoses and clamps. then assemble in reverse order
remove the front and opened the top, removed the old parts and added the new plus a new clamp that I purchased from the local store. I'm a single mom, one income so doing repairs myself is very important. The parts came when promised and it cost me about $23.00 where a repair man could have charged me well over $100.00 just for the parts.First time I used this website or ordered parts, I will definitely do it in the future.
Took the front off the washer. Removed the two screws that hold the top down, this allows the top of the washer to hinge back. The two hose clamps are removed, the hoses slide off the sleeve giving access to the injector and the valve.The new injector has to be placed in the rubber valve and then slid into the plastic sleeve. Tighten up hose clamps and replace top and front of washer. Sleeve had a little different design than orinigal so I figure Maytag had seen this problem before. Almost so easy a caveman could fix it.
Disconnected the the power and inline water hoses. Slid machine from wall about two feet.Removed the two phillips screws in front panel. Removed the two 7/16 hex head self tapping screws one in each side panel to the top. Raise the top section.The parts I replaced were on the top left side of the drum. Loosen the claims and remove the old parts. Really easy!
First I removed the front panel. I then lifted off the top of the washer to gain access to the injector valve and nozzle. Then I unscrewed the retaining clips on the hoses joining the injector valve and nozzle. I separated the hoses from the injector valve/nozzle assembly. I then replaced the injector valve/nozzle assembly with replacement parts and reassenbled.
After reviewing the diagrams and instructions on your site, I unscrewed and removed the cover to the washing machine. I located the source of the leak and replaced the aged parts. I put everything back together and voila, no more leak. Thanks!
