Fresh Water Drain Valve Stuck Open

My fresh water drain valve on the hot side is stuck open. I've cycled the switch and thumped the valve to no avail. In the mean time I've capped off the pipe leading to the valve so we're not dead in the water, as it were.
What's the usual fix, besides replacement? I've no objection to replacing it, but we're due to leave Monday for Tucson and I could take a crack at it en-route since there's no time to order one and get it in time.

I see in the picture you may remove the entire electric valve and cap the plastic line. Take the valve to a plumbing supply store and ask them to match it to their stock.
OTOH, copy down the make, model, and voltage from the data-plate and phone around to different stores until you find a match.
