I have a KUDS01FLSS6 Kitchenaid and am trying to extract the water inlet valve, so that I can replace it. The wires are connected with individual plastic connectors to the inlet valve's metal connectors, and I'm having a whale of a time releasing them from the prongs...am I missing something - like a release button or a release wiht a screwdirver blade? These wires just won't come off the metal connectors!

Colin for Model Number KUDS01FLSS6 Kitchenaid

ANSWER Colin, Use a pair of needle nose pliers in about just behind center of terminal and there should be a push clip or you may just have to use force to get it off.
