First I removed two lower panels at bottom of dishwasher beneath the loading door using nut drivers. There had been a problem in that the dishwasher was not filling with water during any of the cycle. I closed the water supply. I removed the old water inlet valve completely using pliars to open the hose clamp at the outlet anbd remove the hose. Then used a I/2 "" wrench to remove the copper inlet line. Then I used a screw driver to remove the inlet valve mounting screws. I put the valve in my garage vise to remove the pipe fitting. Everything was reusable on the new valve. I just cracked opened the water supply to make sure water pressure was available to the valve inlet side and reassembled everything. Started the dishwasher and problem solved.
