Shut water off to stop leak. Purchased new valve but it had different size fittings. Proper hardware was not included with the new part and was not available from PartSelect or Whirlpool, the maker of KitchenAid. I'm a paraplegic so my brother came over after I got the parts and the hardware. He was able to install the valve but it didn't work while he was here so he shut off the water supply and I'll have to wait and see if it works some other time. Until then, looks like I'll be using trays.
