Could you post two or three of the numbers ? I would like to see if they all go back to one number or what they fit .

Used to use the parts books in a very heavy way . They still come in handy ...

I have found a total of 5 different ones, which include over 30 different part numbers.
The 3 Harold listed.
W10820048
W10780048
W10440786
The one you listed
W10780051
And the latest
W11217817
We stock the first 2 on our trucks.  Hope this helps.

Thanks!  It is impossible to work on multi manufacturers products anymore and expect to carry sufficient stock for any sort of a decent one call completion rate.  I wouldn't want to guess how many different washer fill valves Whirlpool has now...Used to be one could fit their whole line and most non-Whirlpool washers as well!
Things certainly change; right now my St. Pat's Day corned beef is cooking sous vide... who'd a thunk it???
