Did this video help you?

Tomz Rain: Awesome you guys are really pros. Simply explained and down to the point. Great video!

SWLinPHX: What if you have an automatic ice maker but no water dispenser? How can you test for leaks when the ice maker only fills for 1-3 seconds every few hours? That left me stumped so I just disabled it for many months now.

Todd White: This was a helpful video. Can't wait till i get problems with my refrigerator so I can try it out.

yose ddjess: so it will not work if the system is not flushed? i changed the inletvalve and the ice maker too and still no ice..... 

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. 

gilma ochoa: good video

hooger158: This was a great help!

yose ddjess: i have side by side refrigirator made by kenmore model #106.58966702 i have water in my dispenser but no water is going to ice maker i replaced the valve and still nothing 

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 do that?

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 producing ice. 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 :)

yose ddjess: I got water going to the dispenser but not to the ice maker. So the inlet valve is my problem'?

robert gorge: good video and clear 

Gustavo Nacusse: Tks it did work !!!! 

Miroslaw Soczomski: I have Hot Point (GE) side by side refrigerator -HSS22GTE and I have problem but I dont know what is broken. Sometimes a water is leaking inside my refrigerator (freezer) and freezing on the bottom. Its happen sometimes, not all the time. Ice maker makes ice and everything looks OK, maybe water valve is broken? Any ideas?

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.

Lou Janik: Thanks again, Matt! Worked great ... certainly appreciate your video.

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

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! 

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.

JENNIFER GOSS: THANKS A LOT YOU REALLY HELPED ME 100%

greglory: Lifesaver! Thanks for sharing this little jewel.

ben dowd: have Amana sxd23vw- - no water for drinks- ice maker works - need help-

Tom Hoehler: As usual, excellent video. You guys make it easy. Thanks so much for the video.

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 leaks.

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.
