I changed the water valve and I reconnected everything back in place but when I turn the washer on everything seems to be working but then no water is coming into the washer.
Answer Hello Aura. You need to check and see if the water is turned on coming to the unit. Sometimes, we forget to do this after replacing a valve. If the water is on, then check and see if there is power to the water valve. If there is no power, you will need to check the pressure switch on the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
How solenoids come off?
Answer Hello Steven. Sorry, you must replace the valve assembly W10364988 to change the solenoids. They do not remove.
I'm getting the of error and have checked hoses, filters and drain line. Will replacing this valve most likely
fix my problem.
Answer Chris, There should be an additional code displayed( ie. F0-E2, F0-E4, etc.) The E code would help pin point the issue. As long as your water temperatures are correct, in the wash and rinse cycle, then check and make sure there are no kinks or clogs in the air tube from the control to the connector on the side of the tub. The F0-E5 code would indicate and issue with an off balanced load. You would want to check the wiring harness between the RPS sensor on the motor and the main control board for loose connections first, then replace the sensor W10178988 if all's OK.
Which dispenser hose hooks up to which outlet on the valve assembly.
There are 2 different diameter hoses that connect to the water valve. Each hose that comes off is formed to go to a certain spot and if it is the incorrect hose it would be either too short or too long. We do not have a diagram that shows where each hose would connect.
I am working on the water valve on a maytag 300 which has 4 valves. I bought a valve assembly on ebay that has 5 valves can i use it and just leave one valve unused, or will it leak. The valve i bought is for the 400 series.
Answer Hello Russ,
You will have to get the water valve designed for your unit. The one you have will not operate properly and will even cause other issues besides a leak. If the impedance of the replacement part doesn't match the circuit, it will shoot the electronic control.
