I broke the water inlet valve assemble in the move.I would like to know how to remove the back cover to get to the valve?
To access the water valve on the unit you will need to use a flat blade screw driver and push up under the front of the control panel endcap. This will release the spring clips and you can roll the control panel up. Once this is done you will want to release the 2 clips holding the rear panel to the maintop. Once released you will disconnect the wire harness to the lid switch and then pull the cabinet off.
I ordered a replacement inlet valve #3979346 but there are no screws on the back of the control panel to remove. How do I get the control panel unit off so I can proceed?
Answer Hello Will. You will need to use a flat blade and release the clips under the front of the control panel and flip the panel backwards and unplug the lid switch. Then remove the two brass colored clips and slide the cabinet off the frame by pulling it forward. You can now access and replace the valve 3979346 on the unit.
I need to replace the water inlet valve. There are no screws on the back corner of the control panel. How do I remove it?
Answer Hello Fixxer,
You will need to remove the cabinet from the unit to access the wires and outlet hose. There should be one screw, (usually 5/16 inch hex head), holding the water valve in position.
