Default Maytag washer spewing water from Injector
Model Number: LA512   Brand: Maytag   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I'm having a problem with my Maytag washer Model #LA512. I recently ordered and installed the "injector" portion (which consisted of 3 small parts) of the Injector hose kit, into my washer to stop it from leaking at that point when it filled the tub. However, that did not stop the problem and it continues to "spew" water out randomly during the filling process. Not always, just sometimes. I'm wondering WHY? Could there be a problem with the Water Inlet Valve? I would like to know just what that part (#AP4023852) does. That is where the two hoses come together and I believe it is part of what controls the temperature of the water, and therefore the mixing of the hot and cold. Could this have anything to do with why water randomly will spew from the injector portion of the fill hose???? HELP!

Just take the injector out it is not needed. Run the black hose from the top of the water valve, directly to the the water inlet at the top of the tub. Tom ********************************************

Thanks so much. I wondered about that myself. I've done it and will try to run it tomorrow. No reason why it shouldn't work. Thanks again.

Cool

They were probably put there to keep the Maytag Repairman busy...sort of Maytag's equivalent to the whirlpool agitator dogs that have to be replaced every now and then.

Wow. I had the same problem with leakage. We had a quarter of our boxes in the basement soaked because of this issue. I cracked the thing open and found this doodad injector and I scratched my head about what the heck it did because one hose comes off the water solenoid. I guessed rightly it's for "mixing" ahem. What a crock. I was about to go out and buy a longer hose for five bucks to hook the think up like indicate and I did one last google search and found you smart people.

What a JOKE. I lost some valuable papers, books, and other items because of this doodad injector for "mixing water" inline to the wash tub. I want to strangle someone at Maytag. Useless crap. At least their washer is solid. Leaking water is no small thing people. It can cause huge damage. I'm fit to be tied, but thanks for the validation.

I had the same problem with our 15 yr old Maytag washer this weekend and after I got done replacing that lil injector valve.....came online to see what I might find out about it. Was glad to find this site.
I purchased just the rubber part locally, and it fixed the leak. The old part was definately deterioated and "weathered".....and when I capped one end and blew in the other end, I could feel a stream of air.

I had asked the "tech" guy at the appliance repair place what this thing did. He said it was an injector.
I asked "so.....what does it inject?" He said, "water". Told him I was really at a loss to understand the function of this part. Evidently, when water rushes into the small rubber tube, it forces the rubber to expand out against the plastic cage that surrounds it, and the rubber tube thus shortens up and allows the small cone-shaped end of the plastic stem inside to be uncovered; but what of it?

What exactly does this "injector" do ? After reading some of the other posts and replies, it appears this thing is superfluous; but I'd still like to know Maytag's original intent.

BTW, thanks for an excellent site.

Default Anti Siphon Valve

My repair book by EB Publishing (great books by the way) says it is an anti siphon valve to prevent wash water from siphoning back into the home's water system.

I finally pulled the washer out and opened the case looking for a sporadic leak. Spend an hour inside and around the thing and it finally decided to leak for me. I too was dumb founded there was an open cup that would leak at times.

Possibly contributing to my problem, I verified the cold solenoid on the fill valve is sometime not opening all the way and it fills real slow at times on cold only.

If it is less than $5 I'll replace it with like part, otherwise, I'll plumb direct. My water pressure reducer in the home should prevent any backfeeding.

Default eliminated injector... now fills slowly.

I, too, have eliminated the injector. As a direct consequence, my washer now fills slowly.
Are the air holes in the injector sleeve (plastic ) allowing the water to flow faster (as well as letting the water come out all over)?
Because my removal of the injector caused the slow filling, I haven't checked the screen.
Any advice?
