CustomerJames from Farmington NM

Original part had a split and was leaking

The repair went very easily. Maytag/Whirlpool really makes these types of repairs simple, just need basic tools. If you leave the wiring harness on the old inlet valve and just remove the connectors from the control unit, you can reference it when plugging in the new harness after the new inlet valve is installed. Two screws and three hose clamps later (not counting the screws on the back of the washer) and the old inlet was out, the new one in.
