Disconnect power to washer, remove H & C water hoses attached to water valve inlet (for me this was the hardest part of the whole job...hard to get to and a bit tight.) Remove washer top by depressing 2 spring loaded clamps (located between the top and the cabinet about two inches from each edge A flashlight can help you locate the clips.) with a screw driver (recommend using a shim to keep top up after first clip is released until you can release second). Lift up forward end of top, lift back of top off of hinges, and slide top forward on cabinet so you can access water valve. Remove and note position of electrical connections to water valve. Remove one screw holding the plastic fixture surrounding valve and one screw holding valve bracket. Install new valve, reconnect electrical, re-install top, reconnect hoses and you're all set.
