I have a Maytag Neptune FAV6800AWW. I bought a replacement water input valve part # 12002242 which I was told replaced the original Maytag part # 250010446. The new part looks the same as the old part except for the solenoid connectors for both the hot and cold water. The "male and female" parts don't match up. Can anyone help?

Re: 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 $55to 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.

It ispossible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errorsdue to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main programcontroller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting fromthe flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit thewater at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then thevoltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to novoltage from the controller. This meansthe controller is a suspect.
the water valve is bad in the rear area inside the machine,its controlled by electrical solenoids and the valve is stuck open even with the unit shut off,replace the valve combo hot and cold as these dont repair
Google Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW You can get the FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual and get into Service mode and turn on the Cold Water Inlet valve and the Fabric Softer dispenser valve and see if water flows to the Softer reservoir.You may need to replace the dispenser valve. Pic below.Post in the other forum it's easier to work the issue at a true DIY forum.
If you pull the power to the machine and water continues to flow then the water inlet valve is stuck open. You will need to replace the water inlet valve.The Service manual will step you thru the process. FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual for reference.Sears Parts Direct for reference. The water inlet valve is p/n 25001046 Substitution: 12002242 Water valve shop around for best price. Is this Cold water inlet valve issue? If so and you only do Cold water wash/rinse like me you could switch the fill hose connections from hot to cold to hot at the faucet. Turn the hot water faucet valve off and select Warm/Warm temp selection and you will be filling with cold water wash/rinse.Maybe that would hold you over until you replace the Water Inlet Valve assembly. You can check out your pressure switch transitions as I had this poster do for his issue at this link http://www.fixya.com/support/t5471295-washer_fills_water_begins_agitate_but His issue seems to be a definite stuck pressure switch not water inlet valve such as yours.Check to make sure your pressure switch is OK by watching the fill point transitions as I mention in the post. If you machine is a series 12 or above the Low and Mid fill pressure switch transitions will toggle at the same time.Series 12 and above us a 2 level pressure switch.Series 10 and 1 use a 3 level pressure switch. Good Luck………….. D*ick
There is a diaphram switch located in the machine at the bottom right in the rear. When you remove the front panel it will be all the way back on the right. It senses the water level. It has three levels it detects. I had a problem with mine filling too much. That should take care of your problem.
I sounds like this is a common problem with the Maytag Neptune TL after about 3-5 years. Mine finally went out yesterday after several months of bearings getting louder all of the time. It looks like the bearings and the controller are gone. What happened to washing machines that last 15 - 20 years?
I agree with HawaiiTech. If your FAV6800AW or FAV9800AW has water still flowing with the washer 120VACpower cord pulled then the inlet valve is stuck open.Because you are posting in the Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer forum here is some machine specific info for the FAV6800AW or FAV9800AW TL’s.If you are going to DIY here are the links you need; The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference. See page 35/36 to access, remove and replace the hot/cold water inlet valve. The part number for the inlet valve is 12002242.There is aSubstitution P/N 25001046 you will see that here its item 21 at Sears Parts Direct.If you DIY you may want to consider a local purchase, take your water inlet valve assembly to the parts counter and make sure the 120VAC connectors on the solenoids match up.The water inlet valve is easy to replace just follow the SM. If your machine type is not a FAV6800AW or FAV9800AW please disregard my post. Good luck and post back if you have questions or concerns ….Rich… aka dh1200s
If your FAV6800AW/FAV9800AW has water flowing water with the power off or water fill cycle has ended then your water valve is stuck open.I’m sure crud in the valve seats preventing the washer water valve from seating.The water valves are sealed units and need to be replaced.I Haven’t had to replace yet but I will post links to the SM and parts replacement link. See this post for possible issue with a new substitute 12002242 part replacement. The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.
