Are you pretty handy with tools?
Ok. I have a video link that will show you how to get the unit open.
It does not show you how to get the vavle out but it will show you how to get into the unit alot easier than me typing it to you.
The water valve will be in the back corner of the washer and, once you see it, you will see how easy it is to repair.
Getting to it was the hard part.
I will watch this and get back to you, ok?
I am going to do what was in the video. Will the valve be accessible then?
Yes. It will be directly behind the soap dispenser area and fairly easy to reach. Sorry about the delay. The site(on our end) went down temporarily.
Ok. My computer did an update and restart..I installed the new valve, seemed to go ok. the washer still only lets in hot water water, regardless of the setting.
before it also would not shut off incoming water automatically. I will call Maytag again tomorrow and start over.
your link to the video answered my question. Thanks.
