Turn off water and power to the dishwasher. Remove kickboard cover to gain access below the door (2 screws). Water inlet valve was removed using a 5/16 nut driver (1 screw). It is located on the front left side of the dishwasher as you face the appliance. My dishwasher did not need to be pulled out from the cabinet, so using an adjustable wrench removed the supply line. Used a pair of pliers to remove spring clamp on the other line. I then removed the two wires from the clips on the side of the valve. Installation is the reverse, the wires can be reversed with no consequence.
