The repair to replace the Dispenser Water Inlet Valve located at the lower right rear of the refrigerator went essentially as described in other reported replacements...with one exception. The fitting to attach the water inlet line to the original Dispenser Valve was nylon and larger than the metal male compression fitting attachment on the replacement valve. The two discharge fittings on the new valve were plastic and identical in size as the fittings on the original valve. These two lines were easily moved and installed on the new valve. Fortunately, I maintain some inventory of compression fittings and had on hand the proper size brass nut, insert, and compression sleeve for the 1/4" nylon water line from the wall. the electrical connections were easily installed.
