Works great!

This part is a little different but I think it’s because it’s somewhat universal. All the holes Linded up and my washer is working great again.

Great DIY video and quick delivery

This fixed my issue. The part arrived in 3 days and, with the Sears video, I was able to install the part, start to finish, in under 30 minutes.

EASY TO INSTALL

Took less than 30 minutes including clean up to install this water inlet valve. This kept a THIRTY ONE YEAR OLD washing machine going!!! More than thrilled about it.

Perfect part.

Would have been really helpful if there were instructions on how to disassemble the metal case of the washer to access the valve.

It worked.

Complicated if you do not know how to do the repair. Hired a plumber.

Worked!

Part arrived in good time. Packaged well. Easy install (hot/cold) valve. Works like a new washing machine again. So far so good.

You Tube Helped for E-Z Install

Easy to install once the part needed was identified. Having access to the part from Sears Parts very helpful. Used You Tube to get old part off (20+ years old) and to help with the new install. Our old Kenmore washer is working and mixing temperature of water like it used to.
