thank you ,, the part number for the valve is 285805 and cost about $27 and to get to it you will look over the control panel, remove the screw on each side running down into the cabinet, pull control panel forward and tilt back, unplug the lid switch and pop loose the two hold down clamp and side the cabinet off and then you can swap out the valve / thanks
