I have a leaking valve in the W-600 in wall washing machine supply and drain fixture. I do not need to replac ethe entire fixture - jus the valve and it looks like the W-400 drain valve will work.

Does it fit or do i need to buy the W-600 and just use the valve that comes with it?

Dear Anonymous:
Yes, our LaundryMate series uses the same basic valve body. You may have to reuse your existing handle and some fittings, but the internals are identical.
Best!

Answer: 
Dear mrwoj:
We do offer a longer handle option. It is Symmons part #LM-5 and it is roughly 1/2" longer than the standard handle that came with your W-400. It is designed to be used with our covered units, but its slightly longer length may afford some additional on/off leverage as well.
Sincerely,
Shane

Dear Mark:
Turning the lever all the way to the right will turn the valve on, all the way to the left will turn the valve off.

Customer Reviews

Rated 2.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Direct Replacment This was a direct replacement of an existing mixer valve. I merely replaced the guts of the old valve with the new one so that it was not necessary to un-sweat the old valve. October 22, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Seemingly Poor Design I installed this valve with relative ease – it just required sweating on two fittings and then screwing the valve body to them (but this is the way other valves in this class work). However, when I tested the valve, by opening and closing it, it wouldn’t shut off completely – water kept coming out but with a reduced flow. This was problematic as it required me to turn off the main water till I could get a replacement – which was the next day! Fortunately, the replacement worked. The valve is designed in such a way that its action is binary: it’s either completely on or completely off. When it’s not connected to a washing machine, this can be quite jarring because it opens up to full blast immediately, and, when it closes, it shuts off with a giant BANG! (This can’t be good for the rest of the plumbing in the house.) Admittedly, this doesn’t happen when a washing machine is connected – because there’s little or no flow when the valve is actuated – but having nothing attached should also be a valid operating condition. And, it appears that the shutoff mechanism uses rubber washers, which I feel will be damaged by the violent action, and which are much more likely to wear out over time than, say, a Teflon ball valve (which is what’s used in a competing product) would. It will be a while before I get over the fact that I had to have my main water off for an extended period of time due to a defective part from this company. And, I’m still uneasy about its ability to stop the flow of water if one of my hose connections should break – which is its main purpose. Either I’m missing something or this valve is poorly designed. November 21, 2013
