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?
http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-fav6800aww-%3d%3dc292i1032809&PartID=1032809
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.

SOURCE: how to replace a inlet water valve on top loading

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.

The water dispenser will not shut off right away when the glass is removed.


HI. this will occur when the water inlet valve is clogged with debris. this will cause the valve to stick, or not close properly. follow the procedure below to inspect the valve for mechanical damage. replace if needed.

The water inlet valve is located behind your refrigerator. Find the water supply line coming into the valve and turn it off at the source (typically under the sink). Disconnect the supply line. Remove the screws that secure the inlet valve in place.

The water inlet valve is connected by two wires. Label the wire placement on the water inlet valve before disconnecting the wires. The wires are connected to the terminals with slip on connectors

Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If the connectors are corroded they should be replaced.

Inspect the filter screen where the supply line connects. Remove any debris or deposits that may have built up using a toothbrush, or warm running water. If you cannot clear the clog, it will be necessary to replace the valve (the filter is not removable on most inlet valves).


Test the water inlet valve for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X100 (if available, otherwise use the nearest ohm setting). Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should display a reading of 200 to 500 ohms. Close inspection of the inlet valve and especially the coil may reveal the exact ohm resistance rating to test for. If the water inlet valve does not pass this test, it should be replaced.

The icemaker isn't working. The water line is hooked up and working fine when I want to get water, but the line isn't feeding water to the icemaker in the freezer.


HI. testing is needed at this time. There are some issues that concern the operational value of the inlet assembly. check the lines to make sure that they are not frozen. If the line that feeds the ice-maker is ok, and not frozen, proceed with the testing of the inlet assembly.

Can't get cold water to work


You may have a defective water inlet valve. This is where the washer inlet hoses connect to . The water ports are controlled by an electrical solenoid, which sometimes fail. If you wish to replace the valve, go to searspartsdirect.com and type in your model number in the "Search by Model Number" window. You can find the part you need as item #1 under the "Dispenser Parts" heading (part #8182862). You can also find it at repairclinic.com as item #906483 for slightly less. I hope this information is helpful to you. If you need further advice, please post back and let me know.

PS Try turning off the water and disconnecting the cold water hose & check the sediment screen inside the valve. You may be able to clean the valve screen and avoid replacement altogether.

Duet washer WFW9200SQ00 display F20


"F20" is a water inlet problem. This indicates that you have no water or insufficient water supply. What Whirlpool recommends to do is unplug the washer and check your water inlet screens to ensure they are not clogged, check the inlet hoses for kinks, and to make sure your taps are turned on (duh! I know it sounds stupid, but I've seen it before).

To check the water inlet screens you will need to turn off the water supply and disconnect the hoses where they connect to the back of the washer. The inlet screens are located inside the tap fittings and sometimes will collect with sediment and rust depending on your water source. Some hoses also have sediment screens. Check them as well if you have them. Use cotton swabs to clean the screens, thoroughly.

Checking the hoses and taps is self-explanatory. The water supply coming into the washer should be at least 10-25 psi. Insufficient water pressure can cause problems with slow fills and/or error codes due to insufficient pressure. If you haven't had any problems before, I would suspect dirty inlet screens and/or a inlet valve failure.

If you need to replace the water inlet valve, searspartsdirect.com carries the part. Just type in your model number in the Search menu and look for item #1 under the "Dispenser Parts" heading (part #8182862). The part runs about $52.00.

I hope this helps you. If you need further assistance, please post back with any questions/concerns you may have.
