Machine did not stop filling

It was surprisingly easy to get the machine apart:

- unplug power
- undo hot/cold water hoses
- remove two screws holding the control panel (box on top with the knobs) to the machine top
- unhook two brass colored clips holding control panel to machine top
- unplug the wiring harness secured to the top
- remove two bolts on top of back, and two on bottom

Very easy once you get started. The inside of the machine was very accessible and everything is very modular and easy to replace.

The problem for me was that after diagnosing the problem online and receiving the part, I found the *real* reason the machine did not stop filling. Inside the control panel was a large mouse nest (made mostly with a chewed wiring schematic) and mouse. It had chewed completely through the rubber hose connecting the water level switch to the tub. So when the tub filled, the switch never got the signal to shut off. Got rid of the mouse and replaced the hose. Wound up installing water mixing value anyway since I had the part and the machine apart. The old valve had a lot of crud built up in it. With the new value the water pressure was much better.

So the moral might be to take your machine apart and have a look around before ordering the part...it may not be what you think...
