Bryan,

 

I do not have the model number because it is my son's washing machine and he lives in Charlotte, NC.

 

It is a 3 year old Whirlpool Duet Front Loading Washer.

 

I will pay $9 for instruction to replace the bad valve for water intake.

 

I waited for you since you diagnosed the problem correctly.

Hi this is Bryan. sorry i had internet problems and couldnt get back to you right away. anyway you dont have the model # XXXXX what I see. Larry was trying to help you in my absents , thanks Larry. on these machine you need to remove the top to get at the valve. there should be three screws holding the top on in the back , remove these and lift up the back of the top and pull it back to get it from under the front. once you have the top off you will see the valve. shut the water off at the wall and I believe without having a model # XXXXX should be a couple of screws holding the valve in remove these and the hoses and there will be two plugs on it also remove these but watch were they go so you dont get them reversed putting them back on. without a model I'm guessing at the way your valve comes out but believe this is the way.if you need more help let me know thanks Bryan
