Loosened the two older front legs with an adjustable wrench because they had a locking nut and replaced with new legs. Repeated process on back side of washer.

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.

Turned off water and power. Used small nut diver to remove two upper screws from kick-plate, and loosen two screws in lower key slot of kick- plate. Removed kick- plate. Used plier to compress snap ring and remove hose to washer. Pulled off electrical connector. Used 5/6 wrench to remove copper water inlet. Used nut driver to remove two screws holding old valve. Once out removed the water connecting elbow from the old valve and installed it on the new valve. Reversed process to reinstall. Didn't even have to remove washer from the counter. My 25 year old washer is working like new again.
