The repair is relatively easy. Shut off the water valves and remove the water hoses from the washer. Remove the inlet valve plate (one machine screw on my model). Carefully remove the control wires attached to the hot and cold solenoids. Remove the inlet filler hose by compressing the hose clamp. Remove the 2 screws holding the valve assembly on to the inlet plate. Attach the new valve assemble, the inlet filler hose and the control wires for the solenoids in the reverse order and finally connect the plate to the back of the washer. Puts some Teflon tape on the threads and re attached the supply hoses and turn the water back on. Observe for leaks and run through the cycles (both hot and cold to ensure the valve is working properly. Time for completion - 15/20 mins. If no leaks are observed, you are done.
