My Repair & Advice
I suggested that I be allowed to find the trouble which she agreed to. I opened it, flipped the fill switch and found the leak to be at the top rear left side of the machine. It looked to be some kind of injection valve. When opened, it looked to be a short rubber tube with a plastic gadget inside. Research on my computer showed that the rubber inlet valve may be the cause. I ordered the part from APP. It was delivered Wednesday but I ordered the nozzle. I ordered the rubber valve for sure this time and it came Friday. Within twenty minutes, I had it installed and tested. It worked perfectly. It took me another hour to re-install the face of the machine, but it is done and is a good repair. I felt good because it was a good tangible work project.
Ten days ago, I installed a replacement garage door opener by myself. I am a fix-it man.
