This is a very easy repair. After shutting off the water, removing the feed lines, and of course unplugging the electricity, all I had to do was: 1. remove two screws 2. flip the control panel up 3.unplug a wiring connection 4. pop two clips that hold the housing to the back 5. lean housing forward 6.unplug wiring at valve 7. remove fill hose 8. remove two screws. 9. toss old valve in the recycling bin (or trash depending on your area) 10.

I watched the video on changing the valve. Then ordered the part. The video showed exactly how to do the repair and it was so easy.
I replaces the water inlet valve and now I have full pressure for the cold water to fill the tub.
I notice a screetching sound started and as time went on the water that flowed out to fill water drum was not working properly, unplugged washing machine electrical cord from outlet. disconnected water hoses, removed screws from control panel, pulled out front cover off wachine machine to access water valve, removed by unscrewing 2 screws, placed bracket on new part(placed over valve and pushed bracket up to slide and align srew to tightenbracket), put everything back in reverse order, helpfull video on video web site for visual
Had no problem in disassembling the unit to get to the water inlet valve area. Very little problem installling the inlet valve but had somewhat of a difficult time getting the housing reassembled. There is a good flow of both hot and cold water which has cut down on the fill up time and washing time. Glad it is still working after 15 years. Instructions on the internet were extremely helpful. The delivery time of part was amazingly fast.
replaced valve. Everything now working. Ordering the part was simple and I found a how to video on line that was great The whole replacement of the defective part was easy and the machine was back on line in 30 minutes.
I followed the great step by step video instructions that you provided. The only difficulty was getting the plugs off the Water Inlet Valve. I had to use pliers (gently) to pull the two plugs off. I would highly recommend PartSelect to my friends.
I replaced the water inlet valve. First I watched a YouTube video on the repair; surprised to learn that you take the machine apart from the front, not the back.A few tips; pull the washer all the way out first; have extra tools in case you have the same problem as I did that the flathead screws holding the old valve on the back were too tight and had a shallow slot; it took several wrenches and pliers to get them turning. Do NOT forget to hook the internal hose back to the valve before reassembling the machine;and pay close attention to how the housing of the washer fits onto the frame, so that you can more easily put it back together. It would be helpful to have a second person for that step. All said, it was pretty easy to replace the part and I probably saved $200 and didn't have to sit around for a repairman.
followed the video i found on Parts Select. Most difficult part was getting the frame back on correctly. Everything else was a breeze. Works great now.
Removed backing and hoses and replaced the water inlet valve.
looked on the find a part by s symptom. found the part,moved the washer took off the back.took 2 screws off of the top of the machine/controls.lifted the top.replace the water inlet valve.put it back together.easy repair.
Followed the instructions on the Part Select video which were very clear. I removed control module from top of washer, pulled the washing machine outer housing forward slightly and disengaged the rear closure panel slightly. I disconnected the electrical harness and then I was then able to remove the existing inlet valve. The new valve was then installed and the precess reversed to complete the installation.Piece of cake!! (The water comes pouring into the machine now)
This was a thirty year old Kenmore washer. I removed the control frame, and then removed the two nuts holding the water inlet valve. The valve itself was easy, two water lines and one fill line. Reassembly was problematic as this valve was not exactly the same, I just tied off the valve to the water lines so it would not move.Of course what took the most time was a run to Home Depot as the hot and cold water hoses were old and I replaced them with new.
replaced water inlet valve. When finding problem with valvenoticed worn drive coupling,so we ordered both parts.We watched video of replacing coupling, this really helped.Plus we have real fast part delivery.ThanksRoss
I own a small, local handyman service as a Father/Son team. This repair is PERFECT for an apprentice to do as a confidence biulder. He learned the safe way to service a machine with garanteed success. This is a job anyone with basic knowledge can easily do with a little on-line homework on their machine. -Jim & Tom W.-
