I first ordered the wrong part number and received a 2 way valve, but after talking to customer service they provided me with the correct part number for the correct 3 way valve and gave me an RMA to return the wrong part. I disconnected the power and turned off the water and removed the old valve. The new water inlet valve had slightly different water tubing self compression connections, so I had to cut off the old tube nuts with a pair of dikes on my existing tubing and simply push the trimmed tubing all the way into the new valve connection ports. After connecting the new water inlet valve, I checked for leaks and found none. I also had to remove my internal ice maker to remove all of the frozen ice. After reinstalling, the next day my ice maker was making ice again. In the mean time I had also ordered a new ice maker, which I probably do not need now. I can't decide whether to keep it for a spare or to request an RMA.
