I ordered a replacement inlet valve #3979346 but there are no screws on the back of the control panel to remove. How do I get the control panel unit off so I can proceed?
Answer Hello Will. You will need to use a flat blade and release the clips under the front of the control panel and flip the panel backwards and unplug the lid switch. Then remove the two brass colored clips and slide the cabinet off the frame by pulling it forward. You can now access and replace the valve 3979346 on the unit.
I need to replace the water inlet valve. There are no screws on the back corner of the control panel. How do I remove it?
Answer Hello Fixxer,
You will need to remove the cabinet from the unit to access the wires and outlet hose. There should be one screw, (usually 5/16 inch hex head), holding the water valve in position.
When I start the washer , even if I set it for small load ,the water does not stop fill ?
Answer Jeff, A quick and easy way to test. Start the washer, while it's filling unplug the power cord from the outlet(watch out for the arc) if the water stops flowing you'll need to check or replace the water level switch and air tube W10339326. If the water continues to flow, the fill valve has a sticky solenoid and will need to be replaced 3979346. Just be careful and repeat the process a couple of times, to be sure.
