Diagnosis: I removed the nuts holding on the panel at the back of the refrigerator and saw water leaking from the water valve.

Repair: I guided my 10 year old daughter through the actual replacement.

Using a nut driver, unscrew the single nut holding the value to the frame of the refigerator.

Push up the rings around each water tube to release the tubes from the value. Using a wrench, unscrew the supply line.

Put dab of plumbers teflon on the threads.

Reverse all the above:
Screw in supply line, tighten with wrench.
Push water lines for icemaker and chilled water into value assembly.
Position valve and screw in het nut that attaches it to the frame.
Replace rear cover plate and screw in the hex nuts.
