How to put in new water inlet valve part W10144820?
Answer Hello Johnny. 1. Unplug washer or disconnect power. (also disconnect the fill hoses) 2. Slide a putty knife under the right or left corner of the control panel. Lift the corner of the panel and push back on the knife blade to release the clip. Repeat the procedure for the other clip. 3. Rotate the control panel and position it back out of the way. 4.Lift the locking tab, and disconnect the main harness from the lid switch connector. 5.Remove the 5/16? hex-head screw from the green ground wire on the lid switch. Lift the washer lid so it is straight up. Release the locking tab and pull the lid switch up and out of the cabinet top opening. 6. Use a screwdriver and unclip the left and right cabinet spring clips from the cabinet top. 7. Rotate the cabinet up in the back and slide forward so you can access the top of the tub, and set the cabinet aside." You now have access to the fill valve assembly Use a flat blade screw driver and remove the plastic mounting pin, and disconnect the tabs in the assembly from the slots in the cabinet back, disconnect the wires and reverse the procedure to install the new valve assembly.
WHEN FILLING WASHER ON EITHER WARM OR HOT TEMP OF WATER IS SAME. MY WIFE SWEARS IT WAS HOTTER ON HOT SETTING UP TO SEVERAL WEEKS AGO. IS THIS POSSIBLY THE THERMISTER BAD? VALVE APPEARS CLEAN. OR IS THE NATURE OF THE BEAST?
The way to test is to check the water temperature. Let the tub fill with water and the temp should be 78 degrees on warm and 105 on hot. While it is possible that the thermistor is not working properly, it would normally have issues with the cold water fill as well.
