I pulled out machine turned off the water ,and unpluged the machine. Took off the hot and cold water hoses with help of vise grips. Next the two nuts which hold's the part to the machine(plate) and the nut that holds the part to the plate pulled out the part marked the four wires which go onto the part undid clamp on hose and pulled off hose. put the hose on new part , re-attached the wires , put part on plate and attached plate and part to machine hooked up hoses turned on water and plugged in machine . The washer does not leak and works great. I'm a 59 year old woman.
This was not exactly the right part for my machine, well, it was the right part, it was just a different design ro something. It didn't quite sit in the same place as the original, and so, the little hose is crimped a little, which makes the washer really loud. It's ok because it works now without babysitting. It was not difficult to install, just took off the top panel with the star drive bit thingy, and took the old part off, installed the new part (forced it into place) and got it running.
Replacing the inlet valve could not have been any easier. First, I removed the back plate of the washer using a socket wrench on the 2 screws. After removing the wiring attached to the valve, I then detached the valve from the plate with the same socket wrench.I then loosened the clasp on the rubber hose and disconnected it from the valve.I replaced the new valve using exactly the same procedure, only in reverse. First attached the hose, the attached the valve to the back plate. Then replaced the back plate on the washing machine and reattached the hoses.
I was pleased with how quickly my part arrived and that it was still in stock as the washer was quite old. I had to remove screws on back panel to get at part. only a couple of screws held the part in place and 4 wires were connected. The hardest part was pulling the part out of black hose that connected water into machine. It had been on so long it wouldn't pull out and part of it broke off in hose. It took some fussing to get it out and then the new part connected easily.I took one wire off at a time and put on new part as to not get them mixed up.
I unhooked the fill lines from the washer. I unscrewed the cover plate of the water inlet valve, and pulled the valve out enough to disconnect the fill hose. I unscrewed the band clamp on the fill hose and disconnected the hose. I took the replacement part and one by one moved the four wires from the old part to the new part to make sure I connected each to the proper terminal. I then reattached the fill hose and clamped it. (This was the only "hard" part since the hose has little length to work with and is inside the machine.) After attaching the all the internal connections. I took the coverplate from the old valve and screwed it to the new valve. I screwed it all back in place. Before reconnecting the fill lines from the wall, I replaced the rubber washers in the hose (a good practice to do when re-connecting these hoses). Connected the fill lines, and voila--working washer! Very easy and intuitive repair.
remove enough screws in rear panel to access water inlet valve. remove two screws holding water inlet valve to washer frame and flex valve outward enough to remove clamp on water inlet tube. wiggle inlet tube off of valve inlet nipple and back valve out enough to see wires. after noting wiring color codes remove the four wires from the old valve and discard old valve. install the new valve simply by reversing entire process. only difficult part of entire process is removing and reinstalling the inlet tube on the valve body as the tube is short and limits room to work.
Took the back cover off 6 screws, took the inlet valve off the mounting plate 2 screws, the vater valve off the mounting plate 2 screws, and disconnected the inlet valve clamp from the inlet hose to the washer. In reassembling reversed the process. Best part; G.E. was going to charge me $59.00 for the valve, and I got it for $16.10 shipped in one day.
I disconnected two wires on back of inlet valve,then I removed the plastic hose connected to left side of valve. Removed old valve and replaced it with the new one.Attached hot/cold hoses and turned on washing machine to check for leaks.
My appliance repair man replaced the inlet hoses into the washing machine and in doing so damaged the threads on the hot water inlet which resulted in a seriuous leak. I removed the 4 screws that held the damaged water inet valve (#PS270305)in place (inlet valcve and solenoid), removed the 4 wires to the solenid (noting the order in which they wree attached) and simply reattached the electrical wiring and screwed the inlet valve in place with the 4 screws that I had taken off to remove the old part.
I removed 2 screws on the top control panel to tilt the panel back. Then "popped" the hinges. I then removed 2 screws on the rear panel, to "pick up" the panel out of its locking position. Then the rear panel was loose. I removed the 2 srews holding the water inlet valve to the panel, removed the hose and placed the new water inlet valve in position. Assembled everything back to gether. After a $16.00 part was replaced, the washing machine worked like a brand new one with very high water flow. It was a very simple task to do on your own.
I changed the Water Inlet Valve in less than 15 minutes. The valve fit exactly, and the water hoses fit right on. I turned on the water and the washer filled without hesitation. The cost was 15.00, this beat the 62.00 price I was given by GE for the part alone.
I looked up the part on line, ordered it and installed. Veru easy since the part that needed repair was right out in the open.
Replaced the water control valve (the thing the washer hoses connect to on the back of the washer) There were 3 bolts that had to be removed and once the part was loose, there were four wires attached, I disconnect each wire from the old part and reconnected to the new part at the same time to keep from getting the wires mixed up. Then I bolted the new part back in place...worked perfect. Total cost of repair was less than 30 bucks...
This was a very easy repair. First I unpluged the 120VAC power cord. Then I turned the water off. Next I opened the hose connections. Then I removed 3 screws from the back which exposed the Inlet Valve. I removed the old valve taking note of where the wires went. Then I installed the new one. It took less than 10 minutes!
