The water inlet valve SEEMED to be the logical choice of the part that went bad. It was! It was a really easy fix. Undo the bottom front of the dishwasher. Shut off the hot water supply. Unscrew the hot water pipe leading to the valve. Unscrew the 2 screws holding the vlave to the dishwasher. Unclamp the rubber hose on the other side of the valve leading TO the inside of the dishwasher (water outlet side of the valve) And remove the electrical plug on the old valve. Only time consuming part was the need to remove the male/female coppper fitting from the old valve, put it on the new one and reattach the hotwater pipe....don't forget the teflon tape on the threads, the elecrtrical plug, the rubber hose and the front of the case . My wife says it runs like new
