This is a stack unit. The service manual describes the repair by going in from the front of the washer. I found it much quicker by the back. Take the large panel off the rear of washer. Take 2 screws out of the H/C connection panel and work it to the inside of the washer. Next you will be able to turn it enough to get to a single screw on the right side that holds the valve assembly to the support panel. Take it out and now you can slide the valve assembly to the right and release it from the support panel. Drop the panel down and out of the washer. Next mark electrical connections and unplug all. Start on the left and take off all 3 hoses careful not to mix them up and re-attach to new valve assembly. Hook up electrical plugs, re-attach to support panel and work the panel through the opening and re-attach to the outside of washer. It is a little tight working in close quarters, but will save lots of time. This was much less involved that trying to get to the valve assembly from the front!
