Before doing anything else, you will be required to release the vacuum created by a closed system. This can be done by opening a faucet at the highest possible level. You will also need to make sure the water is shut off to ensure efficient draining.
To put the valve in place accurately, consider cutting the pipes evenly at equal distances. Use a sand cloth to clean the pipe’s outer and inner surfaces. Placing your fingers directly on the pipe when it is being cleaned can damage your skin. Therefore you should avoid touching the clean pipe with bear fingers.
Clean the valves thoroughly, if you plan on replacing the shutoff washing machine valves. Solder the shut off valves before installing them. Also, connect two pieces of pipe of equal length.
Use the prodcut manual to put off the washing machine valve. Remove the body and the O-rings as side. Again, make sure the soldered pipes and connecting valve pipes are clean. Save your valuable time to by ensuring the body fits on the connecting pipes before soldering them. Furthermore, the fitting should be straight to ensure smooth water flow.
Use screws to form a firm connection between the body and the fittings but make sure the O-rings are not in place while soldering the fittings and pipes. Allow the pipes to cool down for a short while before removing the body. Put the O-rings and tighten all connections.
Allow the water to move through the pipes to check for leaks. Test your washing machine to make sure it is working properly.
