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.
Lift washer top and flip over. There are 2 clips about an inch in from each side that you release with a flat screwdriver. Remove inlet valve assembly 1 screw. Remove valve from assembly 2 screws. Install new valve to assembly. Very simple procedure. However when searching for part website asks for model number of machine, but 2 different SERIAL numbers of same MODEL number use 2 different parts. Obviously, shut water off and start machine for a second to release pressure before starting install.

It was very simple to change out. I first marked the hoses - hot and cold. Turned off the water supply and unplugged the washer. Disconnected the hoses to the valve, unscrewed the screws holding the valve inplace, drained hose into a bucket, removed clamp and hose from the outlet side of the valve, and removed 2 sets of wires (wrote down the wire color to match the hot/cold hose). To replace was just as simple in reverse order. I made sure to not cross-thread the hose this time. Took less than 15 minutes. If I can do it - anyone can. The part was at my house in just a few days of ordering - great instructions.
Reversed hot & cold water hose to make sure it was the water valve first. Removed old water valve, replaced new water valve in its place. Connected wires and hoses. Pressured checked for leaks, done. Note, the part was half price from partselect compared to the store near my house. Also, fast shipping.
Unplug washer!!! Remove both hoses from washer, this may be a good time to replace hoses. Remove two screws that are holding valves mounting plate. Remove single screw that is holding valve to mounting plate. Remove four wires,noting colors. Remove water hose clamp and remove hose.Reverse process to inxtall new valve.
