Can you send me the instructions to install this part on my washing machine so I can determine if I can do it or if I need technical help? The problem is both hot and cold water get to back of washer but only hot gets into washer. Cold inline filter is not cloged or dissloged. Doc
ANSWER Hello Doc,
The first thing you do is unplug the machine and turn the water supply faucets off. Loosen the three screws across the back of the control panel and flip the control panel up and out of the way. (Don't let it hang by the wires). You can disconnect the harness to the panel if you can remember to reattach it during re-assembly. Now you are looking straight at the water valve. Unscrew the hoses from the valve and make sure you don't mix them up. You can mark them if need be. Wrap a piece of tape around one of them before you remove them and remember which side the taped one goes on. Unplug the wires from the valve and note the length. They are easy to remember as they have to be manipulated to install them in the wrong positions.
Now, using a paint scraper or putty knife, raise the washer top to gain access to the dispense hoses. Take a picture of these with your cell phone for re-assembly reference. After you have removed the hoses, raise the top and there should be a screw holding the valve assembly in place. Removal of this screw should free up the valve for removal.
From this point it's a matter of re-assembly in the reverse order.
