mrmcghee1176: You also might need what's called a "compression sleeve" when you reconnect
the copper H20 line. Luckily, mine came with my valve. It looks like a
TINY copper wedding ring. Fits on the copper water line ( I had to use my
handy Dremel and cut the tubing above the old compression ring). Then, get
the ring up on the tubing to allow some of the tubing to fit down inside
the new valve, carefully screw it on the new valve for a leak free fit!
(DON"T over tighten it!) That fixed my "block of ice" problem.
Salvador Zamora Gutierrez: hi, i have this model of refrigerator but i have no idea how to connect
that valve to the water pump so i can get water directly from the 5 gallon
bottle instead of the water line, where i can find some electric diagram to
Michael Richards: I did everything in this video and still no ice. Water from the dispenser
works fine, but the ice tray is not filling with water and therefore not
What could be causing this? First I thawed the fridge expecting iced up
lines to be the culprit. Nope.
Next I replaced the valve in this video. No operational change.
I'm totally flummoxed.
Cameron Mehrabanpour: Have to say guys that was a great video..............now lets see if I can
sort my fridge out without exploding anything :)
robert gorge: good video and clear
Gustavo Nacusse: Tks it did work !!!!
ben dowd: have Amana sxd23vw- - no water for drinks- ice maker works - need help-
karen gaughan: Thought I had purchased the wrong valve until I watched your video, did not
realize the inlet water valve would come apart from the rest of the valve.
Thanks for saving me a phone call and my weekend.
Gustavo Nacusse: Hello great video on how to replace inlet
I did everything on the video but still dont get any water on the ice tray
what should i do next ???
bibur104: This company is the BOMB!!!
I watched the video on Monday, clicked on the link ordered the part Monday
afternoon received email saying it had been shipped!😳. Part was here and,
thanks to the video, I installed it wed! freaking impressive! I'm ordering
all my parts from you all from now on!
Scott Rucker: My water inlet valve is just leaking like crazy, definetely the valve unit,
checked all the connections, they seem OK. Its a Kenmore Coldspot, I think
2009 model bought it used it was in a garage with very LOW temps, below
freezing, wonder if anything froze and ruined it...suggestions? thx
Tom Hoehler: As usual, excellent video. You guys make it easy. Thanks so much for the
David Franke: Fantastic! My 8 year old replaced the part with your guidance. One
thought: our fridge had two different sized hoses so just figure out which
one goes where. Thank you for helping us.
TMosa00: I gotta say this video and these guys are spot on.... Very helpful.
Subscriber and customer now,,, thanks for taking the time for putting
together a quality video series.
Chuck Purnell: Im confused, I just watched this same exact video on your website and you
list a part number of: AP2583509. Why is the part number different in this
video? The water valve that is currently installed on my Kenmore
Refrigerator doesn't have that red piece. It just has the green piece. I
checked the part compatibility on your website and it came back saying this
part in the video will work on my unit. I was just confused with the two
different part numbers thats all.
JENNIFER GOSS: THANKS A LOT YOU REALLY HELPED ME 100%
greglory: Lifesaver! Thanks for sharing this little jewel.
Gary Ingebretson: My water dispenser will not shut off. Everything else working fine.
lawlman57: Does anyone know what the part that is called that is connected to the Dual
Valve that he did not change?
AppliancePartsPros: If you pulled the refrigerator out and moved it around it could have
cracked the hose. Those plastic hoses get old and brittle, sometimes all it
takes is a little pressure or tension and you get a leak. I can't see how
the other problems could cause this, other than it made you move the
appliance. I think you will be alright, if you replace the supply line.
Josheway: Thanks, I just put in an order. I will finally be able to push the fridge
back up against the wall!!
Sarevan: Question: From the inlet valve, my icemaker line runs up the back to the
icemaker, but the line that should go to do the door, does not. It's going
to the left and up into a big tube. It's not connected to anything there
and it's leaking. Should that line run directly to the door?
Stuart Austin: For a moment there at 00:10, I thought it was Ron Jeremy!
AppliancePartsPros: First check for any ice build up in the tube that goes through the back
wall. The water valve could be clogged or not working properly. You can
test the solenoid that opens the water valve, it should read between
300-500 ohms. Make sure you unplug the refrigerator first. If the solenoid
check out then it could be an issue with the ice maker. If you have any
questions please feel free to post on our repair forum.
Avatar2006w: I have replaced both the rigerator Water Inlet Valve W10408179 and old
removable pre-filter bracket order AP5306962, water is still pooling and
freezing in the bottom of the freezer. The maing unit of the Ice maker does
not appear to be leaking. What else should I check or consider replacing?
modulegirl: Thank you! I didn't find this vid before I called an incompetent repairman,
but I was able to fix what he did once you explained about the compression
fittings. I knew the hoses were in the wrong place but I just couldn't
figure out how to get the hoses out of the fittings. Thanks again. I'll
come back here first next time I need to fix an appliance.
James Reyes: The hose that provides water to the valve on the refrigerator broke and
started to spray water through a small crack in the hose. Could the hose
have broken due to an issues with the valve? Its strange that it broke now
as I was recently having an issue with frost in the freezer and lower
temperature in the fridge. I defrosted the freezer/fridge for a day and
plugged it back which seemed to have fixed what I though was a ventialtion
problem. Now, a few days later, the hose breaks...
AppliancePartsPros: Did you make sure you turned the water supply on, all the way? How long has
it been since the filter has been changed? Check the water tank in the
fridge to see if its frozen. You need to check out everything that might
cause a clog or loss of pressure.
dmmahelton: Call me cheap...Had this exact problem on this type of frig/freezer.
Confirmed solenoid was bad by swapping solenoids (slide on/off) by removing
hold down bracket on assembly. Push water depenser for a few seconds and
checked to see that water entered ice maker tray. But $85 to replace for
one solenoid?!! Bought this part #5303917098 onine from thepartsbiz for $19
shipped, cut off hold down bracket from new part and swapped out green
colored solenoids. Works great.
John Smith: I have a whirlpool model ED5SHAXMB10 refrigerator. Recently the ice maker
water dispenser (which fills up the ice tray) started filling up the cup
that the water drops into and freezing. It also appears to freeze in the
tube itself causing it to swell up. Any idea the cause and repair? Thanks
Larry Richer: Video well done. Thank you, sir.
AppliancePartsPros: If it does not have a built in water filter the water line should go from
the valve to the water reservoir in the fresh food compartment. If it has a
built in water filter the water goes through the filter first, then to the
reservoir and out to the dispenser.
kristina amato: So I have replaced the Valve Inlet, everything seems to be connected
properly and I have rechecked all connections. When I try to run the water
ans flush the sytem I get a solid line for about 10 seconds and then it
slows to a drip. There is a lot of sediment in the water.... what could the
problem be now? I needed to replace the Valve Inlet because the original
was cracked and leaking.
Charles Stewart: I have a Whirlpool ED5RHEXNL00 side by side with water dispenser on the
door. The water dispenser has a very very slow leak from the tube. Is the
inlet valve the most likely repair?
jordan mcintyre: Excellent video! Changed mine step by step and it worked just fine. No
AppliancePartsPros: If its leaking from both it could be a few things. Such as the valve is bad
or clogged and its letting water through. The refrigerator needs 30-120 lbs
of water pressure to work, if its low they could slowly leak. Many people
have a problem if they install a R/O system, as it drops the pressure to
the refrigerator. Make sure the water supply valve is all the way open. A
dirty, clogged water filter can also cause pressure problems, make sure if
you have one it is new and changed regularly.
0953pat: i have the a whirlpool fridge that the water is dripping from the ice maker
and also freezing at the end of the tube that puts water into the ice maker
to make ice. i was told sounds like the valve. wanted to ask before i order
it from you and it be the wrong part. when i looked up my fridge sears said
this was the part number, replacement for the original part
AppliancePartsPros: If the water valve is not sealing inside, it could cause water to drip from
the fill tube and over fill the ice maker.
0953pat: ok so do you have a part that will stop the water from dripping? it appears
to be not shutting off when it should so we get water dripping through the
door water dispenser and water drips through the tube that lets water into
the icemaker. it does not over fill the icemaker tray. it drips so slow
that it is freezing in the water line at the end. we take pliers and break
out the piece of ice that forms or sometimes it shoots the piece out when
it goes to fill up the tray. thank you :)
Sean Rhone: I've replaced the water valve but when I turn the water back on there is
water shooting out of the connector from the water source (wall) and the
water value. I've checked that the connection is tight and not
cross-threaded, what else should I check? Thanks again for this great video.
AppliancePartsPros: Make sure you are tightening the hose enough and that the hose washer is in
there and in good shape. It could also be a defective valve, it is strange
but it does happen from time to time.
Shivani Ghai: Hi, I have a Maytag GS2728EEDB side by side fridge freezer. I changed both
solenoid valves as water was coming from the water dispenser and would not
stop, the water stops coming from the water dispenser when I open the
fridge door but will still keep coming out when the door is shut. I have
changed both solenoid valves now and I am still facing the same problem.
Please advise what the problem could be. Thanks
Antoinette Jackson: This is probably what is wrong with mine as we are getting water through
the dispenser but not the ice maker. However it would be nice to know what
steps to take PRIOR to this to trouble shoot the problem. For example I see
air in the water line going up the back on the outside of the refrigerator,
it is one of the lines that goes to the inlet valve.
AppliancePartsPros: It is always best to look up the part by the model number on our site. But
here is the note we have on this water valve: Due to manufacturer changes
this valve no longer includes the removable pre-filter bracket. If you are
unable to use the old removable pre-filter bracket order AP5306962.
Josheway: Do you guys sell the first inlet portion that gets removed from the old
inlet valve and was not replaced in this video?
399curtis: my kitchenAid side by side will not make ice. Water doesn't fill the ice
maker. The red light in the freeze section blinks red and I have water to
the chilled water dispenser. If I replace the valve will it fix the issue?
model # ksrg25fkss
AppliancePartsPros: If you go to our site and click on the top where it says repair forum you
can search for "ice maker not working" and get some info. Or you can ask
your own question. There is a few thing to check and it is more than I can
put in here. I would start with checking the fill tube where it goes
through the back wall to be sure its not frozen up.
AppliancePartsPros: The inlet valve a common problem. Also check for water pressure issues,
clogged line, old filter, air in lines etc. According to the model number
you supplied, this is the valve used: AP5263471.
Jnr106: Excellent video! Followed exactly as shown and worked like a charm. Thanks
for posting this!
John Smith: It appears to drop such an amount of water that it fills up the tray to
overflow as well.
