First piece of advice is to do all the work from the top; meaning un-hinge the top of the washer, do not disconnect any wiring to the washer controls, just the wiring to the water valve itself and kind of lay the top to the side a little. I initially took the small access cover off on the bottom, and tried to reach from the bottom, awkward and near impossible to get both hands in to where you need to make the repair. The rest of the repair is cake. Disconnect the wiring, disconnect the water supply line for the tub, replace the water valve and just work in reverse. :)
