Turns out replacing the part was not needed. Still did not work. Opened freezer and hit inside of door with hairdryer to thaw out frozen water line. Wish I would have done that first. Water works fine now.

Changing the water solinoid was quick and easy but not the problem! After still not getting water to the ice maker,I took the ice maker itself out of the freezer.I could hear something small rattling arround inside the plastic housing.As I took it apart I found a tiny white piece of plastic inside the size of grain of rice.It had broken off the end of an arm that rides on a cam of the electric timer.Without that little plastic tit riding on the cam,it make the maker out of sink! I fixed it by drilling a .080 hole in the spot the piece had broken off.Then I took apart an old broken fishing reel for a screw to use in place of the broken off piece.I re-installed everything and the ice maker has been working as good as new and will hopefully out live the fridge.My solinoid is now a good spare part!!

Water line to outlet water dispenser was frozen half way up the inside of freezer door. I scotch taped a bunch of plastic grocery bags on the interior left water dispenser door.I closed door with bags attached to inside door. I waited fifteen minutes and water was flowing again! First take off plastic coupler at bottom of front of refrigerator. Push plasic cup dispenser back, if water comes out of plastic tube at bottom front of refrigerator, then water valves are ok (if making ice is ok too). if light comes on at dispenser switch is ok also.

Valve body split and was leaking

Exactly as the instruction video said. I could have done it without the instructions but I would not have cut a piece off the two water lines and possibly had problems down the road. Also, I may not have figured out the easy way to remove the two lines from the valve body. I believe this is my 3rd time using your process and it's absolutely the best. I won't go anyplace else. Next project is probably replacing the ice maker.

Water dispenser doesn't work

Watched the video on how to repair this problem. Folowed the simple instructions and it worked. The double outlet water valve worked as it should. When I tested the water dispencer nothing came out of the spiggot on the door but water poured out all over the floor because the 5/16" water line from the replacement valve to the front of the refrigerator was brittle and cracked. I've ordered the part. MORAL OF THE STORY - if your are replacing this double outlet valve, buy the water line and the union for the dispencer. You'll save yourself time, postage and effort. From the looks of it sooner or later the water line gets "cooked" and breaks/cracks.

Watched the video. Extremely helpful. Replaced valve and now the water dispenser shuts off, like brand new. The valve must have had some calcification and would not completely close.

Excess water was seeping into the ice maker through the fill tube in back. Reading repair stories here on Parts Direct quickly led me to the water solenoid fill valve. I ordered it and received it in two days. The video here on Parts Direct showed how to change the valve and armed with that information it was an easy 20 minute job. Problem is fixed and the ice maker works flawlessly.

Disconnected power cord and turned off water supply. Then I removed rear metal cover on back bottom of refrigerator. I put a towel under 2 water lines, removed water line from wall into valve, removed screw holding water valve, removed both water lines by pushing in on connector and pulling out on the line, removed each electical connector. Then I reversed the process. I did cut about a half inch using a carpet knife from the two water lines entering the bottom of the dual inlet valve. Before putting the metal cover on I turned on refrigerator and water to check for leaks. Notes to remember are that electrical connectors are color coded and 2 bottom water lines are different diameters.
