Good afternoon all...
My Maytag washer has suddenly stopped accepting cold water. The hot water works fine as does everything else (except a cold rinse) but when I opt for Cold water it seems to be laboring to let some into the machine... all I get is a tiny dribble and alot of noise. And even when the machine is off (and unplugged) I now have cold water dripping into the tub.
I've checked the hoses and screens for debris but they are clean and running freely.
My best guess (from exhaustive research) is that the water inlet valve has given up. I can order the valve locally and I want to have a go at installing it myself.
To that end, I was wondering if there is a downloadable manual online anywhere for this unit... or one that might be comparable enough to make some sense of the whole adventure?
I'm hoping this won't turn into a nightmare repair... and if there are any caveats or suggestions that I should know before I begin, I'd surely appreciate any and all advice. Especially the variety of advice which begins with, "Whatever you do, for goodness sake don't touch that!
Thanks very much for your time,
