Speed Queen washing machine


Model #NA3511).
I bought a new water inlet valve which has 4 electrical terminals I don't know which electric wire connects to what terminal. Can anyone help me?

    First, have you looked on the washing machine case for a schematic? Sometimes they are on the inside of the unit. That might tell you what color is what.
    I am not familiar with this particular valve, but most such valves operate by a coil (solenoid) I believe. Since there is probably a hot water and a cold water side, I would check for a coil for each side with an ohmmeter. One pair of wires would be for the hot and one for the cold.
    If you also do not know which of the four wires go to the coils, measure the voltage with a voltmeter when you set the washing machine to turn on the water. That should tell you which is hot and cold.

Look at the diagram provided, usually on the back of the appliance or inside of a panel. I'd be surprised if there is no schematic.

In most cases there is one common lead that is daisy-chained to one terminal on each coil for hot and cold water. Look for a wiring diagram as others have already suggested. Get it wrong and the worst that will happen is that the water temperature is incorrect and you will have to swap the "hot" leads.
This advice may be too late: take a digital photo of the setup prior to disassembly.

Just move them, one wire at a time, from the old valve. Or, the old valve may have a plastic plug that only goes one way.
