Hi, Im sorry to hear that.
Anyhow you are correct, you will need a new water inlet valve (solenoid.)
It's pretty easy to replace if you are handy and have a few basic hand tools, I will help with that as well;-)
The best place to get a new water inlet valve for that machine is: http://www.ransomspares.co.uk/
I would call them to make sure you get the correct one;-)
Also if you call, they ship same day in most cases!
