How Disassemble Leaking Oatey Single Handle Washing Machine

jaysgardenDecember 10, 2011

Had an Oatey single handle washing machine valve that was about 14 years old. Developed a leak at the handle.

I was able to take old valve off the taps but could not figure out how to remove valve stem from valve body to replace any bad o-rings or seals.

Anyway I ended up putting on a new valve body on the old taps and afterwards looking at old valve body more closely was able to figure out how to remove valve stem to access o-rings. It was a rubiks cube.

See photos in case you have similar problem.

Perseverance.
That's how I've ended up with a basement full of things that I repaired after DW replaced them.
