I took off the front of machine by taking out the two screws at bottom of front panel. As I turned the water off and on I could see the leak coming from the sleeve bracket area. Using a small socket I was able to loosen the screw and pull apart the hose from the valve and replace with the new valve in about 30 seconds. Tightened everything back up, turned on the water again--all dry! Put panel back on and good as new!
