For Whirlpool Water Inlet Valve (Part Number: AP4010168)

I am only able to get hot water to flow into the machine. I suspect it is either the filter screen in the water valve or a poor connection on the 4-way wash/rinse switch. Can I make this determination without dismantling the water valve? And is there a procedure for dismantling the valve?

Terry for Model Number MAV6200AWW

ANSWER Terry, Dismantling the water valve would not solve your issue, there are no repairable, replaceable parts inside, you'll need a new fill valve 22002707. You can remove the water fill hose from the valve and check to see that the debris screen in the valve body opening is clogged. It's not likely to be a faulty water temp switch 22002999 or wire, either, but you could verify the switch circuits. You'll need to remove power to the washer, Remove the three(3) phillips head screws across the rear top edge of the control console and end caps, and roll the control panel towards the front of the washer, to access the wiring and control switches, and the wiring diagram.
