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.
Need to connect water inlet valve wires.
Answer Hello Sussy. The length of the wires prevent you from hooking them up wrong. If you install the valve and the wiring harness, each connector will only reach the correct solenoid on the water valve.
My Maytag washer will not dispense bleach.Everything else works fine. Is this a bad valve assembly?
Answer Hello Eric. Check the bleach dispenser and make sure it isnt clogged. If not, replace the valve W10364988 on the unit.
How do you raise the top of the washer to remove the clamps from the hoses attached to the valve?
Answer Hello Ed. You will use a flat blade putty or butter knife and release the locks 8563785 under the front corners. Once released, you can raise the top assembly and access the hoses and clamps. Hope this helps.
How do I check the temperature sensor that is mounted in the inlet water valve on Kenmore 110 28032700 washer?
Answer Hello Keith. Here is the test procedure for you. Hope this helps. Remove the P9 connector, and using an ohmmeter, measure the resistance between pins P9-1, and P9-3. Verify that the resistance is within range as shown in the following table:
Temperature Resistance ( )
40°F (4.4°C) 26–27.5 kO
50°F (10°C) 19–20.5 kO
60°F (16°C) 15–15.7 kO
70°F (21°C) 11.7–12.2 kO
80°F (27°C) 9.1–9.5 kO
90°F (32°C) 7.2–7.6 kO
100°F (38°C) 5.6–5.9 kO
110°F (44°C) 4.6–4.9 kO
120°F (49°C) 3.6–3.8 kO
130°F (55°C) 2.9–3.1 kO
140°F (60°C) 2.4–2.6 kO
