How to replace a water inlet valve
This step-by-step washer repair guide shows how to replace the water inlet valve assembly on a front-load washer. Replace the inlet water valve with a manufacturer-approved replacement part if the washer doesn't fill or if it fills with water even when the washer is unplugged.
