Maytag Washer
« on: January 13, 2012, 12:17:00 AM »
I'm working on a Maytag model#  Mav3905aww
Have you ever had a faulty inlet valve that allows water to the fill spigot when the machine is off?  The spigot is leaking towards the back even while the machine is off.  It's a small, but constant drip.

Dirty valve screens and low water pressure can also cause the problem.

I replaced the valve with 285805 since I had it on hand.  It appears that fixed the spigot drip.  Apparently they are made to have a quite a bit of pressure or none at all.   ;D
