Unplugged fridge, and turned off water supply. Removed cover from back of fridge, followed the plastic tube down to water valve.
I unbolted the mount holding water valve in place, removed the input tubing on top by unscrewing nut. I made a note of which outbound plastic tubing went to water dispenser, and which one went to icemaker, and which side of the water valve they plugged into, and then cut the tubing very close to the old valve.
I slid the tubing into the new water valve, and I felt it lock into place, very easy. Attached the input water line and tightened the nut.
Reattached the water valve mount to the body of the fridge, replaced cover, turned water valve back on and checked for leaks (there were none).
Plugged in fridge, tested dispenser, everything worked just fine. No leaks.
