This Whirlpool model has the water inlet valve located in the front left of the dishwasher. It was not necessary to remove the dishwasher from under the cabinet. Disconnect the power at the breaker box and turn off the water supply to the dishwasher. Place a towel under the Valve as there will be a small amount of drainage from the water lines and the Valve when disconnected. After removing the front plate on the bottom, I could easily access the 2 screws securing the Water Inlet Valve. Disconnect the water lines on the Inlet Valve and the power connection. . Mount the new Water Inlet Valve, re-connect the water lines and the power connection to the Valve. Turn on water supply and check for leaks. Turn on power.
