Cold water slow to fill tub
I started by shutting off the hot/cold water and unplugging the washer...from there, the back panel(secured with approx. eight bolts) was removed; it proved to be the project's most difficult task. The inlet valve was very easy to remove: removed a couple bolts that secured it to the back panel, disconnected the two electrical plugs and water fill hose. The new valve was installed by reversing the above steps; take note to follow the supplied directions as the electrical plugs must go on the valve in a prescribed manner. The back panel actually goes on easier than it comes off. When reinstalling back panel, be sure the water diverter is properly positioned before securing back panel. The diverter can be seen by opening the washer's lid...it's the plastic thing that channels water into the tub. After reassembly, new water supply hoses and washer were installed, moved washer back into place, plugged it in and all worked like new.
