mk5455: I can't get past this guys hair-do. It looks like he's very thorough in his explanation (sound is off) but somebody tell him he needs a make-over. DUDE, YOU NEED A MAKE OVER!!!!
My Samsung water shut off started making this god awful noise when it would shut off. It bothered me at first but it worked so I didn't care. Not until we hosted a B-day party. "WHAT WAS THAT!!!? a startled birthday girl shouted!" So we had the refrigerator guy out, he removed the ice bin to make the ice maker cycle and I'd just be damned (almost silent). He looked at me to say something and I said do it again, I wasn't disappointed. Two brand new valves and four visits later, checking water pressure into the house, the works, he says he can't fix it. So I had to.
It's in the garage where the Frigidaire French Door/lower drawer freezer used to be. Don't get me started on that heaping hunk.
PLEASE, DON'T BUY ANYTHING FRIGIDAIRE!!! We bought it at 60% off because Lowe's lost our order and we didn't know about it until delivery day. We ordered and bought the Kitchenaid French door version and there was a back order of two weeks. I wrote a review about the MANY issues that made this $$$ trap a bad deal.Just one, the freezer fan blows cold air on the $50 water filter. Before a month is over the filter cracks and water accumulates until it runs all over your new hard wood floors until you discover it the next morning. I posted a review on Lowe's web page but they said they couldn't print it. Home Depot did though.

Folabi Olat: Thank you for the straight forward instructions. I have a Kenmore refrigerator, model number 51274200 very similar to the one in the video. The water does not come out from the dispenser, I replaced the water inlet valve which was made by Robert Shaw and now the dispenser works and the ice maker works.

Amy Dell: your video is great. should i order a new valve with tubing & connector or just the valve? went online to order, lot of choices, not sure what to buy. any help would be appreciated.

Rachael Mondloch: Thank you so much for this video. I especially like the common sense discription like squaring off after cutting and that the parts look different but function the same. Addressing this makes a person who isn't an expert but a DIYoutuber feel a lot more confident in her repair. And I installed this about 4 months ago by piecing together from other videos and service manuals. If I had watched yours right after I got my part it would have saved me a lot of time and a headache!

aboabdullah alsaket: I would like to communicate with you +218919999769

THEVERYOLDONES: I HAVE AN OLD GE PROFILER ARTICA AND I HAVE NO WATER TO BOTH THE ICE MAKER OR THROUGH THE FRONT OF THE DOOR. THIS ALL HAPPENED AT ONE TIME! DO I STILL NEED THE SAME PART TO FIX MINE OR IS SOMETHING ELSE WRONG? EVERYTHING ELSE SEEMS TO WORK OKAY. PLEASE ADVISE! THANK Y OU.

Eduardo Jaramillo: Hi Matt is I change this part do this fix a dripping water dispenser also ? Thanks

Cherry Estudilo: My two doors Whirlpool refrigerator, the ice maker broken. The water dispenser is OK. There was no sensor light on. I replace the sensor control board. The sensor light works fine. But no water come out to the ice maker. I replace the water inlet valve yesterday. Still there is no water come out from inlet valve, but the dispenser is OK. There is water out from the inlet valve for the water dispenser, but no water for the ice maker. I check the water line tube in the back. There is no water out from the inlet valve ( to ice maker). What is the exactly issue or the problem that cause the water no coming out from the inlet valve to the ice maker?

T F: Check to see if your filter is plugged....lots of these are replaced because people dont change their filter enough (or ever)

Don McCutcheon: I have replaced water inlet valves on my WhirlpoolWRX735SDDBM00 refrigerator. Im still not getting water into my ice maker.
Any suggestions?
Thanks;
Don McCutcheon

Gilbert Villanueva: Excellent instructions for us mechanical morons who are not mechanically inclined. Can't go wrong after watching this informative video.

Doug Ramage: Water supply line was cut going out. How do I fix it? 3/8" compression sleeve doesn't work on the plastic water line tube.

James Goff: My ice maker stopped producing ice, then all of a sudden it started working again. Now it is leaking water into the freezer. What could be wrong?

J M: Thanx it was the filter

J M: Install was good but not sure on water 💦 flow I see air bubbles but not sure how long it will take to flow normally there's just drops coming out ? Or ?

Gabriel M: Why are you wearing thick mechanics gloves on such small clean work?

Steve Stock: Great video and well done! Thanks!

Marshall Border: Ronald , I'm no expert -but maybe the new part is defective . I have run onto these in other things in life !

Marshall Border: Wish this video had been around when I replaced ours , great video helper !

Keith Wechsler: I was nervous as your video was more detailed than the one from the part manufacturer. Without your addition of cutting off the old compression fittings, I would have been lost. Just have to wait for my Whirlpool ice machine to suck the air out of the ice line. Wish there was a was to manually cycle. Thank you so much.
