This water inlet valve attaches the water lines to the back of your appliance. The attaching solenoids on the valve open and close according to the desired temperature, or amount of water needed.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
The best way to access the water value was through the rear of the stackable washer/dryer by removing the back access panel (3 screws with nut driver). It was also necessary to remove the large back panel where you access the drive belt to get you hands up to the valve. It was a little tight accessing the valve unit from the back but definitely better then removing alot more to access through the front.Once the back access panels are off you will see the blue water valve. it has (3) water hose connections and (5) electrical connections. Make sure to label each of the water hoses and electrical connections before removing them. The hoses simply are held on by hose clamps (use a screw driver) and the electrical connections just slide off the contact conductors. Real simple but again it is a bit tight working from the small access panel.I marked all of the hose and electrical connections prior to removing anything. The removed all connections and slipped out the water valve. Simple reconnected water hoses and electrical connections replaced both access panels and all systems were a go.Definitely a relatively easy fix for a do it yourself project. Part was only $70 (included shipping). Repair cost for the Maytag man was quoted at $450 for visit labor and parts.

This is a stack unit. The service manual describes the repair by going in from the front of the washer. I found it much quicker by the back. Take the large panel off the rear of washer. Take 2 screws out of the H/C connection panel and work it to the inside of the washer. Next you will be able to turn it enough to get to a single screw on the right side that holds the valve assembly to the support panel. Take it out and now you can slide the valve assembly to the right and release it from the support panel. Drop the panel down and out of the washer. Next mark electrical connections and unplug all. Start on the left and take off all 3 hoses careful not to mix them up and re-attach to new valve assembly. Hook up electrical plugs, re-attach to support panel and work the panel through the opening and re-attach to the outside of washer. It is a little tight working in close quarters, but will save lots of time. This was much less involved that trying to get to the valve assembly from the front!
