Probably a good assessment. I wasn't trying to second guess your repairman. I just wanted to make sure you were able to have the knowledge to eliminate some of the possibilities yourself. That way, you feel a little more confident that you're getting the correct repair. It sounds like the solenoid is probably clogged or scaled up from sediment. Let me know how things turn out for you.

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune Part Change?
I haven’t had to change the water inlet valve but is this the valve assembly you purchased?
It looks like they throw in an install instruction sheet at this parts supplier site. If you have this do they speak to adapting the wiring harness to the H/C valve assembly. I’m sure you are not lucky enough to have male spade connections on you replacement inlet valve. If they are spade lugs this would be a piece of cake to interface too. Looks like a molded connector on the inlet valve to terminate the 120VAC power to the valve assembly.
I called the supplier above and if your machine starts with serial number 18 or above you need to purchase an upper LED wiring harness p/n 1185286 $55 to interface to the replacement H/C valve you purchased. Or you can purchase p/n 1404313 wiring info for $7.50 for the DIY’er. I know this is a bit frustrating. I don’t have the valve in hand so I can’t offer a quick solution. I’m willing to bet the wiring harness they are selling for $55 is nothing more than a cable with proper female/male mating connector transitions to interface to the factory 120VAC connections to the inlet valve. If my water inlet valve fails I would be in the same boat as you but I would make up an interface cable before spending $55. Maybe a more knowledgeable forum member can offer a better solution. Good luck to you.

Try it the way you said if it that doesn't work reverse connections. No damage can be done. You'll get cold water if asking for hot and vice versa.

These aren't to bad but hopefully I can clairify well enough for you to follow. You will need a phillips screwdriver, a flat head screwdriver and a 1/4 inch driver (or socket). Slide the unit out and disconnect the water lines and unplug the washer all together. Now stand directly in front of the washer and look at your control panel. That whole console with the 3 selector switches and timer are going to be flipped upside down, backwards off the cabinet. If you look to the left and right of that console you will see a plastic end cap (or ears) on each end of the panel those knobs and the timer are stuck in. You need to look to the backside of the washer at both of those plastic end caps and you will see a phillips screw pointing towards the ground at a slight angle. They should be the only phillips screws in the end cap and they have a special tab right above them to keep them from coming out with vibration. Use your phillips to push in the tab while unscrewing these 2 screw (one in each end cap). Once unscrewed pull the whole panel forward about 1/4 inch and it should release and flip backwards.
If you got it then hard parts over. K, now we work on the area you just exposed by moving the console. Unplug the connector to the lid switch by pulling up locking tab and pulling out the wire connector. You should see 2 brass clips locking the rear panel to the cabinet. Examine them before taking them out so you will be able to pop them back in the same way they are coming out. Use the flat head to slide into the cabinet part of the brass clip and pry to the back of the washer. It should go down straight and pry to the back. You have just freed the whole cabinet front but don't take it all the way off because it can be tricky to get back on. Just lean the back panel out so you can access the valve for replacing and you got it.

Thats a two man job that you are trying to do yourself. The top of the washer has to be removed to replace the valve. Get some help to remove the dryer from the top.
