Be careful threading the hose to the water inlet or you
can end up cross threading or stripping the threads, they are plastic and can easily be stripped.
It will save you time and $.
Unscrew the top of the washer and remove it. Removed a weirdo screw with a pair of pliers since I didn't have the tool to remove it.
Took out the old one and replaced it with the new one. Replaced the weirdo screw with a drywall screw and screwed it in place. Carefully threaded the hoses on and turned on the water. Success!
