I have a duet steam dryer and the inlet valve is broken -

Customer Question
I have a duet...

I have a duet steam dryer and the inlet valve is broken - can I just disconnect the inlet water hose?

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of your dryer? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

Whirlpool Duet WGD9570

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes - I had to turn off the water so it didn't flood my basement which means I can not use the washer. I ordered a new hose but can't do the work right now.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

If the water is on - it pours out of the bottom of the washer. I would have to take it apart to work on it. I just want to wash clothes today and dry without the steam function.

Yes just disconnect the water line to the unit and if you do not use any steam function it will be fine.
