Unpluged washer and turn off water supply to washer.Used channel locks to take hoses off back of washer.Then unscrew to screws in top panel and then flip it back. Take screw driver and pop out the two clips and unplug lid switch. Now you can pull off front section of your washer. Use your socket to remove the two nuts on back panel and unpluged the hot and cold plugs.Use channel locks to pull back of hose clamp. You may need to put mounting plate on the back of the inlet valve. Put back in reverse order. Good Luck Mark N. of North Port FL
