Turned off water and electrical. Removed kickplate at bottom of dishwasher. Unhooked water line, electrical plug and unscrewed valve from frame, noting proper position of valve for new install. The only delay we had was removing the old water line fitting from old valve. We needed the old fitting for the new valve. We solved the problem by soaking valve in boiling hot water to help loosen the connection. Install of new valve was reverse of the removal process. My son did the work and saved me approximately $200 for a service call. I also want to say that ordering the part from your company was less expensive than if I had ordered it locally and gone to pick it up! Your website is extremely helpful, user friendly, and I am recommending it to all my friends when they need to repair an appliance. Thank you!
