I shut the water valve and bled the pressure off by using the water dispenser. Removed the four screws that hold the cardboard backing on the unit. Unplugged the power cord, loosened the metal water supply fitting. Then I removed all three hose fittings and dried the drips with a towel. I pushed the electrical plugs off with a flat blade screw driver. Removed the bracket attachment screw and pulled the double valve out. The new valves came with a push-lock fitting for the plastic hoses so I pushed them into their sockets. Put the new valve in and replaced the attachment screw. Reattached the water supply line and the electrical connectors. I turned the water on and checked for leaks. replaced the cardboard backing, and plugged the power cord back in.
