This part fixes the following symptoms:
Unplugged power cord, turned off water and disconnected cold and hot water lines. Removed two screws on bracket at water inlet area on back of washer. removed loose bracket and removed one screw that held water control valve (hot and cold). Unplugged four clipon electrical connections (marked before removal for ease of reconnection) Used flat tip screwdriver to remove hose clip from hose that went from valve into machine. Connected four clip on electrical connections and reconnected intake washer hose to water valve. I put a tiny bit of plumbers grease on plastic valve nipple to make it easier to push nipple into rubber hose. Reattached one screw to anchor valve to metal bracket. Repositioned bracket and attached two screws that anchored it to the washer. Reconnected hot and cold water lines and turned on hot and cold water to check for leaks. Plugged in power cord and started a wash cycle to once again check for leaks before pushing machine back into place. Wife didn't think I was "talented" enough to fix the washer, but I proved her wrong.

Turn the washer to the back. Unscrew the upper right corner water inlet valve. Take it out then replace it with new valve. Then turn your washer on and it will work just like brand new !!!!
Ordered the new part from Part Select had very prompt shipment (2 days) printed out someone elses review and followed their steps and it was even easier than they had written so if you get this part simply print the only other "steps" listed because their correct. The only addition i would say is you can use a "nut driver" for the screws as well as the hose clamp which makes it simpler, and definitely mark where you remove the connections so they go back in the same location. Also it may be advisable to remove the big "drum cover" to get easier access to the water hose since it's a little short and difficult to get back on the new valve through the inlet valve hole.It should take you about 15 min to do
Unscrew the screws holding the soap/bleach/fabric softner in place. Unscrew the door hinges.Unscrew the white plastic clips that are to the right of the door. These hold the front of the washer in place. Once these are removed, you can pull the front of the washer away from the door opening. It leans out from the top and you can remove the entire piece from the clips that hold it in place at the bottom. Then you can unscrew the screws to the top left and top right that hold the top of the washer in place. Once these screws are removed, you can lift up the top of the washer and lean it back revealing the water inlet valve w/thermister. All the electrical connections are easy clip off/clip on. The hose clamp is the typical screw type.
