My Oatey washing machine cold valve (blue) valve handle

Customer Question
My Oatey washing machine...

My Oatey washing machine cold valve (blue) valve handle broke.

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

I need a new Oatey cold washing machine faucet (blue) handle - just the blue handle. The faucet is good and working, but I can no longer turn the faucet on or off.

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

Yes, all I need is the handle; I don't really need a whole new faucet. I just haven't been able to locate one.

They do not sell just the handle but you can buy a valve very cheap and just use the handle
