Did this video help you?

ANTHONY baker: I have a leak on the valve that the main water goes onto( the valve you did not replace). Do you know the part number for that?  I have the new valve that you replaced but the other one is the one I need to replace so I'm going to do it all at once.

AppliancePartsPros: Aglarend, I cannot comment on your post as you have the rely feature off. Make sure the water is on, make sure the ice maker fill tube that goes through the back wall is not frozen up, make sure everything was reinstalled correctly and wires have good connections. You can read this post which gives a lot of info on testing the sensor and ice maker. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/refrigerator-freezer-repair/5143-whirlpool-side-side-ice-maker-not-making-ice.html

bonfilio diaz: What kind of work does the part you change. Because I ha a problem with my refrigerator. When I turned on the water it doesn't stop running inside the frozen. Any idea what's wrong?

Aglarend: Ok, followed these instructions with my Kenmore fridge and they were perfect, thanks!

HOWEVER, the ice maker (which had been switched off due to a leak at the valve each time it tried to make ice) is now not making any ice. No water sounds like before as it pulled water up into the maker, no indication that it's doing anything, and of course, no ice in the tray.

Everything is connected and installed correctly -- what could possibly be the cause of the ice maker now not pulling water to make ice, and really, not doing anything?

Quick note: the little red light next to the ice maker ON/OFF switch inside the freezer is blinking red...

Salvador Cruz: ok thank you for you help ,but my ice maker still not working if is working make maybe only 2 pieces and then stop again can you give a idea please

AppliancePartsPros: Ronald Wilhelm, I cannot respond as you have the reply feature off. Once you turn the water on it may take a little while for the ice maker to go through a cycle and call for water. If your valve was leaking water up to the ice maker make sure the fill tube going through the back wall is not iced up. If it still does not make ice you will have to look deeper and see it there is another problem such as the ice maker itself or maybe the infrared sensor, if you have that. You can also post the problem along with the appliance model number on our repair forum and the techs can help you troubleshoot the problem.

Ronald Wilhelm: I replaced the refrigerator water inlet valve and installed a new ice maker. Plugged everything in according to your youtube directions, but there is no water flowing into the system. Checked to see if there was water flow, and there is,  but the valve won't kick on.  What next?

Salvador Cruz: good video I order this part but my ice maker still not working ,please tell me what can do thanks

Bob Johnson: Thanks for the clear photography.  It make reassembly easy.

dlarson8698: Hi Guys!  I've replaced my water inlet solenoid/valve on My GE fridge.  I believe I have air in the line as its not dispensing water into the ice maker.  I've removed the cover and mine model doesn;t have test points to initiate a harvest cycle.  I only see a small and larger plastic gear.  Is there any way to cycle the ice maker to verify the water is in the line?  Thanks!  Love the vid!  Dave Larson

mario dilorenzo: I know i need to change mine. But i have two diffrent inlet Valves. How do i know which one to change? Amana aes2464bs. Thank you

tom tran: I turned off whole house water to repair plumbing. After 24 hours I turn water back on I got water going to the dispenser but not water to the ice maker. Is inlet valve problem?( Ice maker worked normal before I turn water off.)

Dalisay Pastrana: I have changed my water inlet valve, but the water coming out in the water dispenser taste awful. We can not drink the water, it smell and taste bleach. I drain it so many times, maybe more than 25 gallons already and I changed the filter, the taste still the same. It doesn't taste like that before I changed the valve. I changed the valve because it's leaking.

Michael Taylor: Great video.  Thank you.  This saved me.  I had no idea how to deal with those new pushin type connectors until I watched your video.

steve ward: Great video ! Thanks !

T Singh: Watched video multiple times, ordered part and changed out part as per video.  Fantastic.  Will watch other DIY videos!!

Leroy Hudson: Very helpful. How do you determine its the water inlet valve is faulty

Alexandra Fry: hey this is an excellent video and thanks for posting it it may very well save my hide. i'm a floor mechanic and i had to disconnect the fridge (exact same one as shown above) and when i went to hook it back up, it started leaking. It was a very slow leak but a leak none the less. the leak occurred at the second connection in, not the copper line which baffled me. i watched your video and decided to dig in and try it. i tried several times and got the same result, a very slow leak. i tried to cut the line thinking that maybe it needed a new edge on it. same thing again. it seemed that when it was held on a certain angle it didn't leak.do you think i need to get a whole new water inlet valve assembly or should i just keep trying until i succeed. we already have the new part but that 70 bucks is an expense that i'd rather avoid. your advice and expertise in these matters is greatly appreciated 

Gary Gleason: Okay, I don't need the inlet valve assembly, but need the first valve it must go through to get to the assembly, any idea of the name or part number for this part? Thanks.
