Went online, searched my dishwasher name and model. Found "PartSelect" site, then typed in "Water Inlet" in the search area, (for specific part). My part, along with several awesome illustrations from all kinds of angles appeared like BAM!!! There it was, the very part which I held in my hand for comparison. Wow, was I thrilled! I ordered the part in just a couple of minutes, as I used my PayPal account. Shipping took 4 days. Regarding the repair, just kill the power to the dishwasher, remove the service panel (bottom), unscrew the two screws that secure the top of the dishwasher to the under side of the counter (anti-tip prevention) slide the dishwasher out from under the counter, loosen the nut to the valve and pull the service line (copper tube) out from the valve. Then unscrew the valve from the dishwasher chassis. Pop the wire from the valve and and secondary rubber hose, now the valve is free. Just install in reverse order.
