Turned off the water and unplugged the machine
Took off the top of the washing machine by removing three screws along the back side
Removed the hoses connected to the water inlet valve
Removed the hose coming out of the water inlet valve
Marked the 4 electrical connectors
Used plyers to pull the electrical connectors off. Needed to just pull hard. Won't break them off.
Remove the screw that connects the valve to the back of the appliance.
I confirmed this was the part causing the problem by blowing air through it with my mouth. I could tell that the hot water side was not closing all the way.
To replace the part, just repeat the steps above in reverse.
