To fix the water valve was very simple. First I unplugged the refrigerator and turned off the water supply. On the back of the refrigerator I removed the water panel. I think it was about 5 or 6 screws I did this using a nut driver. After it was loose you can remove the panel out to where you can get to the water valve. To remove the water valve lossen one screw holding it to the panel. To remove the water lines you hold in on the coupler and pull the line out. Each time I pulled a water line out I put it right back into the new water valve just to make sure they where put back in the right place. Same with the electrical connections unplug one and plug it right back into the new water valve. When your done with that, screw the new water valve back on to the water panel and screw the water panel back on the refrigerator. Turn on the water supply and check for any leaks. If no leaks are found, plug the refrigerator back in. Pretty simple.
