First I googled the problem. My initial problem, which started about a year ago, was that the water dispenser stopped working.
I still had a humming noise, but that was it. I though the repair would be too costly, so we lived without it. Then water began to leak from the dispenser, which meant I needed to fix it or buy a new frig.
I ordered the part, and it fixed both problems. We now have water again and no leak. The water inlet valve is EXTREMELY easy to fix.
Just take the back panel off the frig, unscrew the 2 screws holding the water inlet valve housing, and take one hose or plug off the old one at a time, and put them on the new one. Very easy.
