I was able to get the part for free from GE as one time courtesy. Manage to install it alright. It seem to work ok.

Now, a week later, the water inlet valve in the back start leaking. The only reason I can think of is back when I was installing the water heater kit. I either turning the the water supply valve wrong direction, or turn it on too quickly causing high pressure and crack the water inlet valve? I saw a video guide on youtube, relatively easy to replace. Just wondering if anyone know the cause so I can be more careful in the future and not breaking anymore stuff :)

Is it leaking from the valve body or from where the plastic tube connects to the valve? If the connection, may just need to remove and reseat (shut of water supply first!).

If the valve body, you'll need to replace the valve. Probably just a fluke.

And how to replace it:

It leaks from the valve body. That was the video I watched too. Thanks for the info. Will replace it then.
