Hi, I'm Mike and I have 20+ years of experience as a plumber. I'll be glad to assist you today.
You will want to make sure your main water is turned off or if there is a stop valve on the pipe that it is off. If you turn your main off then drain the system before removing the cap. Do you see at the base of the cap that there is a plastic piece? To remove the cap you would push that piece up while pushing the cap down. The piece pushes up inside the cap and gets between the teeth that hold the cap on and the pipe. You will need a similar type stop valve to replace the cap with so that you can book up the dishwasher. The valve should come with a removal tool that makes it much easier to remove the cap. I'll make a video to show you how to remove the cap. It'll take me a little while.
