Had the same problem from first time out. As stated before, debris from the factory was found in the valve. Unfortunately the dealer that fixed it did a bad job and scratched the surface of the valve plate and it still leaked after they had it for 3 weeks. Fixed it myself by reversing the valve plate so the scratch was on the drain side.

Is it the plastic cardboard? If so, you can push on it a feel around to find the valve.
