Clothes washer DIY inlet valve
« on: August 09, 2022, 04:35:18 PM »

Hi  all,
 
  I'm trying to resolve the water hammer on a Speed Queen clothes
washer. What I plan to do is build a DIY mixing valve using third
party valves. One concern I have is the current draw. Under a no
load measurement it pulls 1.3 amps when energized. I haven't measured
the draw of the OEM valves , but there is a 7W marking on it.

Can installing these new valves damage the circuitry inside the washer
(IE: burn components, melt wiring, etc)?

Thank You for any consideration,
Kevin
