Thank you. The link was helpful and I have gotten the valve replaced. Right now though I am about to lose my mind trying to get the cabinet set back on the base straight where it all lines up in back etc. I literally have been at it for an hour. Can you tell me, does the cabinet set on top of the frame or is it to catch underneath somehow. That doesn't seem to make sense as there would be nothing to keep it from setting on the floor. Seriously, I am about to go insane with this.

with the cabinet tilted towards you.'the lid open and your hands in the opening of the washer,with your feet.push the bottom of the washer under the front lip.Now push the cabinet towards the back,So it touches the back.Line up the holes for the brass clips

Thanks again. I thought that I had it, put the whole back together and as I tried to push it back the front pulled up from the bottom again. I think I am going to have to come back to it in the morning though, my fingers and the insides of my knees are raw from lifting the cabinet up over and over again trying to reseat it. And, my patience is long gone!

 

On the bright side, I checked the water connections and all seems to be well. No leaks. Hot and cold water.

 

Again, thanks for your help and the links.

Appliance Technician: John, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago

Do you have the back off

As well If you do put the back on first.

There was no need for the

back to come off

No. I didn't have the back off, but it was leaning back of course away from the cabinet while the clips were off.

 

Your instructions last night were very helpful and I was able to get it seated properly on the third or so try this morning. Knowning that the front lip had to be pushed up under the front lip of the washer helped tremendously. For some reason I was convinced that the back had to be lined up first. ARG...

 

Anyway, thank you. It is all back together and hopefully I didn't pull any thing loose in the process. I'm going to try a load now, so praying there will be no water on the floor when I go back!
