AMANA washer model LW7503W2
« on: July 21, 2020, 11:35:12 AM »

I am currently working on the above model washer that  I got from a neighbor who told me it had a water leak near the mixing valve. I dismantled the unit and found a small rubber valve p/n W10841299 partially cut . This is called a DUCK BILL anti siphon valve ? I have a new one on order which should arrive soon. As small as this item is it seems kind of expensive and I wondered if there is an alternative for this item or could it be eliminated in the plumbing line. Any input from other techs would be appreciated.

The repair part was installed and the unit put back together with success. No leaks were noted and the customer who took it was happy with it. A less costly  alternative for such a simple tiny rubber part would seem to be possible IMO.
