This washing machine water inlet valve has two ports for water to enter. It comes with its own anti syphon and wire guide.
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:
After making sure the lines and screens are clean, and there is good water flow thru the hoses to the valves, and there is power to the valve solenoids, (which can be detected by setting to fill and pulling out on the start knob), and hearing a "click" at the valve, you can summize that the valve is weak, or partially blocked internally. Replace the valve by unpluging the power cord to the machine. Remove the hoses. Remove the screw that attaches the valve mounting plate. Pull the plate and valve out and remove the screw that attaches the valve to the plate. Unplug the wires from the solenoides,[IMPORTANT] noting which wires go to each valve. Remove the rubber hose on top of the valve by squeezing the hose clamp with a pair of pliers, and sliding the clamp up the hose. Now you can pull the hose off. Install the new valve in the reverse order.

Cleaned up a wet utility room floor!Unplugged power cord to the machine and turned off hot and cold water at the stop valves. Removed the top machine screw that holds the metal panel with the valve attached (on the rear of the machine where hoses attach), removed it from the machine with valve and hoses attached.Disconnected both water hoses at the old valve, together with the 1/2" hose to the machine. Mark hot and cold positions.Moved the electrical contacts one-by-one to the new valve.Changed the old valve for the new valve (one screw attaches to plate).Connected the inlet hoses and 1/2" hose to the new valve, making sure hot/cold on correct positions.Replaced plate in the machine and secured with the machine screw.*** NO MORE WADING SINCE REPAIR *****
I turned off the water at the main water inlet. I then removed the hose connections to the valve inlet. I removed the one screw on the plate pulling allowing me to pull the plate out from the washer body. I then removed the wires connected to the old valve placing them on the new valve (so not to be confused). I took off the small hose clamp attached to the valve. I removed the valve from the plate and attached the new valve placing the a new hose lamp on the hose (wires were already attached) screwed back to the plate in the washer body connecting the water lines and turned the water on at the main valve. I did have to run to the hardware store for the small hose clamp but that was my choice to replace the one that was existing. The washer now works like it is new.
I checked out the reason why it was not providing hot water then went to this site and found out that it was most likely a water intake valve. I am hardly a do-it-yourselfer, but after watching the "how to" video, I figured why not? The valve arrived in two days, and it was quite easy to do. We now have hot water again.
Unscrew the hoses. Remove access panel. Unclip the 4 electrical wires. Undo the hose clamp on the top of valve and remove hose. Unscrew the one screw holding the valve in place. Remove valve. Reverse for installation.
Unplug the washing machine , disconnect the water hoses, and remove two screws. Then remove the bracket and valve from its area. Remove the electrical connections and the small hose, and then reverse the procedures with the new water valve.Plug the washing machine electrical cord in , and hopefully savor the positive results.

For safety, UNPLUG THE MACHINE FROM ELECTRICITY. First I pulled off the silver cover from the back of the machine by the existing Water Inlet Valve. Of course I had to unscrew the two screws holding it in place, first. I then unplugged the two electronic connectors, careful to note which was hot and which was cold. Then I used my pliers to pry the metal clasp loose from the rubber hose which held the inlet valve into place. It was a pain in the but, but that's all I had to use. I also used the pliers to loosen the clasp again so I could jame my replacement inlet valve from partselect into the hose. Now I put the electronic connectors back on. And then set the metal cover back into place and screwed it on tight. Now I put teflon tape on the new threads and screwed on my new water hoses. Worked like a charm. Not a bad deal--about 45 bucks for the part plus overnight shipping to fix a washer/dryer combo I just purchased for 150 bucks from a lady who was moving!
Take off door at valve which holds valve in place removed with three screws. Replace valve rehook hoses easy.
I was happy to find out that all I had to do was pull a few nuts, disconect the wires and hose and put the new one back in. Really simple and only took a few minutes.
Received the part in two days. Very easy instalation as the part is the exact replacement.
I removed the one screw on the plate which exposes the water inlet lines. Disconnected the two leads to the inlet valve.Replaced the defective inlet valve and re-connected the leads. Replaced the plate coveringthe new inlet valve. Done.
All I had to do was to shut off the water supply and unplug the washer. Then removed the two water hoses. Then unscrew the cover to the water inlet area and remove it. I removed the electrode wires. then attached new part and put back together the way it came off and presto! It worked great.
