Shut off the hot and cold water supply and removed the water inlet lines. Top cover comes off very easily by removing the 3 screws in the back and 3 screws in the front. Removed the three water lines and the wires to the valves. I marked the hoses and wires to make sure they go back on the same as they came off. Removed and replaced the valve, 2 screws, then replaced all the water lines and wires. Reconnected the water lines and turned them on. Let the machine run through a full wash cycle then checked for leaks, replaced top cover. Has been working for several weeks now with no problems.
