chose to install the dual water inlet first. quite easy to replace. unplugged the fridge, removed the water feed tube, and removed and replaced the valve. that got water to the ice maker, but then the water leaked all over the floor when the water dispenser was activated. i then ordered the secondary valve assy to install. - wrong-. i installed this (remove the dual water valve again, disconnect two electrical plugs, and three plastic tubing lines, and replace inner valve, and outer valve). STILL LEAKING. so, remove the two valves again, and find that the original plastic water tubing is routed along a black insulated heating line that has caused the tubinmg to harden and basically fall apart. cut off the hardened end and replaced all, and now wworks fine. ***moral of the story - if you have leaks, or the water ddispenser doesn't hold a "prime" examine the tubing before ordering valves, etc.
