Your in the wrong place, but all you do is take the screws off, then pull open the diaphragm from there its really easy to clean.

A little more information would be helpful; you may have to take it apart in order to clean it. I'm not sure.

Search the site for valve maintenance. This post is kinda misplaced...

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

One easy way to try to clean the valve is to just flush water through it while cycling it a few times.

When the bloody hell did I do that? Crap, have I been posting in my sleep again?

Well, if I have been sleep posting, it won't be much good. I recommend reading noname's guide instead:
