Hello,
I have an Electrolux Gas Dryer and the last time I used the steam option the water would not stop spraying.
The warranty is up as luck would have it.
Anyone had the same issue? I saw some posts that indicate it might be the water inlet valve? But if so, I have no idea how I know what part # I need for my model.
Any ideas or help would be lovely. Thank you! - Jennifer

Hi,

How did you get the mist to stop coming in? Did you turn the water supply line to your dryer off? If you turn the water supply line back on, do you still get the mist coming in when the dryer is off? If so, unplug the dryer and if the mist still comes in, then your water inlet valve is bad.

Here's the water inlet valve for your model:


There is a video in the part link that shows you how to replace it.

Thank you for your reply. Yes, we disconnected the water hose and it stopped. We tried turning the power back on/off and attaching it again. Same thing.
This looks perfect.
Thank you!

Ok Jennifer sounds good, yes then the new water inlet valve will fix it.

Let us know how it goes.
