Turn off water, unplug machine
Disconnect water lines to the valve
Unscrewed the clear plastic tabs on the top of the machine, then pryed the back away from the top white part.
Two gold clips can be popped out with a long flat head screw driver.
Pulled the back away from the machine enough to disconnect the wires from the valve. Unscrew the screw(s) from the valves.
Old valves out, new valves in. Plug in the wires, screw in the screws.
Then, to get the gold tabs back in place.....i called NASA.
just kidding. They're tough!
I slipped one into the back and held it in place with my thumb. Then I lined the piece up with the slot inside the machine. Then, i pryed the top white part away as I pushed them together. Stuck a long handle screwdriver down in and pushed REALLY hard on the gold tab to get it to snap into place. Everything is really tight, so you might have to try it a few times.....i left some blood behind.
repeat for the other side, snap in the clear tabs, hook up the water lines, plugged it in......
Then I sat back and listened to my wife praise me for fixing her machine!
