Your video shows removing two phillips screws that hold the control panel down enabling me to slid the panel slightly forward to remove. I need to replace the water valve. My machine has no screws holding the panel. How do I remove it to proceed?
On the front corner of the control panel there is a sprig clip on either side that you would use a putty knife and push in on it. Once this is done you pull forward and it will release. Once released on both sides you will then roll the control panel up.
How to bypass the thermistor on the water valve?
Unfortunately the thermistor cannot be bypassed on the water valve. This is wired directly into the circuit and the unit will not operate properly without the thermistor in position.
I am having a dripping problem when the washer is not being used, I was told it was the water inlet valve and thermister assembly.
Answer Hello Don! Yes, that is correct. If the unit is filling with water (dripping water into the unit) when not in use you'll need to replace the inlet valve part number 3979346. Thanks!
