Product Description

Water Inlet Valve Specifications

This is a water inlet valve which is used in washing machines. The valve controls and monitors the flow of water into the washer. It has a multi-mount bracket and outlet adaptor. The tools needed for this repair are: a 5/16 nut driver, 1/4 nut driver, and a small flat blade screwdriver. If cold water does not flow into washer, or the washing machine will not fill with hot water, replacing the valve can be the solution. To gain access to the water valve, locate the back of the washer and remove the hot and cold hoses, as well as the whole assembly. Next, remove the four wires and loosen up the clamp. After removing the old valve, replace it with the new one and reconnect the wires and hose. Remember to disconnect the washer from the power source before starting this project.

My washer fills slowly with cold water when it is not on. If I put my finger under the rim inside the tub, it is wet. I've got the problem under control by turning off the cold water at source when not in use, but I'd like to fix it, if possible!
For model number A712

Hi lid switch was bad because of solenoid. Part is unavailable so bypassed lid switch. The machine will not fill with water on start up but will do rinse cycle. The water inlet switch is new. Did i louse up something bypassing the lid switch. Thankstom
For model number LSE7800ACL
Hi Tom, Thank you for your inquiry. If your washing machine is not filling with water then you may have check the continuity of the lid switch to see if it is working correctly. A lid switch that is not working correctly can cause this issue. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Hello, the warm and hot water fill for wash cycles but no cold water for the wash and rinse cycles. I removed some sediment in the screens but still no cold water. Cold water flows through the fill hoses...thanks!
For model number A482
Hi Todd, Thank you for your question. It sounds like the cold water solenoid might be broken on your valve. You can test the part to see if that is the case, but it sounds like you will need to replace your valve. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

For model number A9400
Hello Rich, Thank you for the question. This sounds like an issue with the temperature Switch, PartSelect Number PS2017425. I looked up the part and it is listed as No Longer Available/Discontinued. There is no part substitutions listed. My suggestion here would be to call the manufacturer and see if they can provide you with a substitution for these part numbers. Hope this helps!

Only the cold water intake vale is stripped, do i need to replace both hot and cold intake vale
Hi Savannah, Thank you for your question. If this is the valve that you would need to replace, you would have to replace the whole thing. Unfortunately it does not come in parts. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

My Maytag a882,series 10 top load washer will not stop water filling, unless it is set to the "small load". Anything more and it overflows. Looking at the water fill valve and the air tube, both say, in the instructions on your web site, it could cause the over fill. Since it does not do it on the small load setting is there any way,i could tell which is the problem, or should i replace both? Note.The load setting on the washer is what controls how much water is let into the tub.Thanks
For model number A882, series 10
Hi Vince, Thank you for your question. To verify which part is causing the issue, you will need to check the continuity of each part with a multimeter. If this issue is not happening on the same load setting, I would check the timer as well to make sure it is working correctly. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

After end of three separate washes water was on floor check drain and rubber hose that goes into drain and they were dry
For model number A 105
Hello Lee, thank you for your question. If the drain hose and rubber hose that goes into the drain are dry the water is most likely coming from under the tub itself. I would check/replace the Mounting Stem/Tub Seal Kit Part Number: 6-2095720, Tub Bearing Kit Part Number: 6-2040130 and Drain Pump Part Number: WP6-2022030. I hope this helps!

Ok so couple weeks back unit would not work on hot or warm settings just cold. We tried that for a bit to extend the life but now it takes no water on any setting but the spin cycle will still run. I disconnected the fill hoses and there was no obstructions to the hose ends or the valve screens. Has the value assembly went bad or is it another issue in your opinion? Operates on spin cycle so motor is obviously still good. Thanks.

Cold water valve only opened to a trickle
I started by unplugging the appliance and then shut off the hot and cold water faucets then I disconnected and drained the hoses. Next, I removed the two screws that held the valve assembly in place. I then pulled the assembly out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wire plugs. The last step was to loosen the hose clamp on the outlet hose and pull off the outlet hose. I reversed the steps to install the new assembly and the total repair took about 10 minutes.

Cold water solinoid not opening properly
I moved wash machine away from wall and unplugged from wall outlet. Shut off water, then removed hot and cold water lines from water inlet valve,removed screw from mounting plate and removed valve from wash machine. Checked to see if replacement valve was compatible (exact fit).
Unscrewed the two screws holding valve to mounting plate,unscrewed hose clamp and removed water line at top of valve (outlet). Removed the four wires from solinoids.Replaced the four wires onto the new valve as they were on the old valve,reattached water line onto the top of valve and tightened.Reattached valve to mount plate with the two screws and mounted back onto machine. Hooked up hot and cold water lines back onto valve and snugged with pliers. Turned on water checked for leaks (no leaks), and did a load of laundry. Super simple,well worth doing yourself.

After verifying that the supply wasn't the problem, I ordered the replacement inlet valve module.

1) shut off water to machine
2) removed the hose connections from the valve
3) unplugged the washer
4) removed the plate holding the module - 1 screw
5) removed the hose clamp from the valve module to the washer inlet
6) removed the two screws holding the valve module to the plate
7) removed the 2 wire connections to each of the two solenoids.
8) Reversed all of the steps above for the new valve module.

cold water barely flows, hot is ok
These Maytag people know how to build stuff. I was impressed with this valve. Built really smart. After a gazillion years (about 16 or so) the valve started making a funny groaning noise and the cold water flow was very slow. Took about 15-20 minutes to fill the tub.

the inlet valve is located on the back of the washer where the hoses are connected. In fact the hose connectors are part of the valve.

To replace this valve, start by unplugging and turning off the water spigots, unscrew the two hoses from the valve. (you need a towel here, but that'll be obvious soon enough.)

Unscrew the single screw at the top of the valve bracket (the bottom of the bracket is held in place without screws.) Remove the screw holding on the sheet metal and pull the bracket out as far as you can without stretching things. Write down what colors of wire are connected, then pull off the electrical connectors.

The valve outlet is a skinny (compared to the inlet hoses) rubber hose that has a clamp to hold it in place. The clamp needs to be loosened with a 3/16" nutdriver a plier would probably work, but may be hard to get in there. Now slide the clamp further up on the hose, dislodge the rubber hose off of the old valve. Now it's free.

Reverse the steps. Believe it or not, that is all. It works great and this washer probably has another 10 year left in it.

No hot water
Went on the PartSelect website, input the problem, and got the Water Inlet Valve as the diagnosis. When the part arrived, I viewed the short video on replacing the Water Inlet Valve and just followed the instructions. It could not have been easier. After turning off both the hot and cold water and pulling the plug from the wall socket, I removed the screw holding the bracket and valve to the machine; removed the 2 screws holding the valve to the bracket; removed the wire harness ends from each solenoid on the valve; replaced the valve with the new one and reattached the wire harness, followed by reattaching the bracket to the valve, and assembling to the machine.

Disconnect the water lines. Remove two screws that hold the water valve to the back of the machine. Pull the water valve out and remove the panel that holds it on to the machine. Remove the water line from the valve to the wash tub. Remove the four wires from the valve remembering where each one goes on the new unit. Attach the valve to tub hose to the new unit. Attach the four wires in the proper order to the new unit . Screw the metal holding panel on to the valve. Push the unit in place and reattach with the two screws. Attach the water lines and use the machine. Remember to unplug the machine prior to changing the valve

replace failed valve
Of couse, turn off water to machine. Remove hoses. Then had to open unit - easiest by popping spring in with flat blade in seam under lid. Screws holding valve are on back of unit at hose inlet, so simply unscrew to remove failed valve. Clamp holding hose onto valve is crimped with pliers to remove. I suggest spending the 50 cents a hardware store for new clamp, as my reattachment of existing clamp onto new value leaked. There are four electrical connectors, so remember order in which you removed them and return to same on new unit.
Reassemble in reverse (hoses, water on) and your all set.
Pretty easy: I figure it would be about $200 for service guy and part. My cost: $30 and 30 minutes
