Repair was easy...The hardest part was manhandling the machine where I could work on it. I loosened the retaining bolts around the back, sprung the retaining clips, and slowly pried the top off the front of the washer to finally get the entire top off. After that, it was a matter of reverse engineering it and removing the bad part without breaking anything else! After about 20 minutes, I had removed the valve assembly, and the new one went on much faster. It took about half the time to put it all back together, and it worked beautifully! The best part was saving the exhorbitant amount of money that a service company would have charged me to install the part, while probably breaking something else in the process! My wife was so happy...
