Most all of the workable parts on a dishwasher are accessed thru the bottom. Luckily ours is portable. Took the dishwasher to the garage, flipped it on its back on my motorcycle/ATV jack. that makes it so much easier because you can raise it up 24". Used the schematic from Part Select and found the water valve. Removed two screws, two wires and two clamps and viola, water valve comes out. Installed the new one, and reassembled, I thought. I left off the hose that connects to the wash drum. Started it up and had water all over the floor immediately. Took to the garage, flipped it back over and realized what I had done. Felt like a moron. Reconnected hose like it was supposed to be and it runs great.
