Followed on line instructions when searching for repair of water inlet valve for Kitchenaid refrigerator. Perfect instructions and an easy fix.
Pulled fridge out. Turned off water supply. Removed cardboard backing on bottom rear of fridge. Removed old valve on right hand side. Removed hoses by pushing in on the rings and holding then pulling out hoses. Installed new valve being sure to push hoses the whole way into vale. Turned on water to check for leaks then replaced cardboard. About 20 minutes total.
Keep some towels ready for the water that comes out of the hoses. Don't worry about matching hoses, they are different sizes and easy to identify. I recommend removing the entire cardboard backing of the fridge so it is kept in good condition.
