My Repair & Advice
Replaced valve. Valve replacement was super easy. Nothing difficult, but the most tricky parts were moving hose clamp off and on (compressing the tabs was wobbly and pliers kept slipping off) and putting the machine housing back on (watch the videos and pay attention to how bottom front must be put all the way in with housing tilted up then let down. Then in back, tabs on bottom of frame must fit into holes on bottom of housing.) Spent a good bit of the time finagling these two parts; otherwise, would have been 15-30 min.
