My ice maker stopped making ice. The water dispinser was working though- which threw a curve in diagnosing the problem. First, I ordered a new ice maker and installed it per instructions. That did not work. I called the help line at Parts Select requesting a replacement since it appeard to be defective. The rep on the phone was helpful, and suggested that i review the Parts Select website section on repair diagnostics. I did that, and learned from review of the possible suggestions for repair that the dual water valve may be the problem. So, I ordered the valve and replaced the old one. It was a perfect replacement, and did the job! I had ice being made within two hours after the valve was replaced. In this experience I learned that one of the dual valves stopped working, but the other one continued working. It did not regester with me that the the old valve may have been partially bad ( half working and half not working). I hope this post is helpful to others who read this. Thank you Parts Select. I highly recomend you to others.

The leaking water can be caused by either a leaky dual control valve, by a faulty time cycle control, or by a mechanical failure in the ice maker. I first replaced the dual water control valve at the back bottom of the refrigerature. This did not solve my problem. The water was allowed to flow for too long, but would eventually stop. I replaced the entire ice maker per the on line video instructions. This was easy. The water leak is solved.
I first ordered the wrong part number and received a 2 way valve, but after talking to customer service they provided me with the correct part number for the correct 3 way valve and gave me an RMA to return the wrong part. I disconnected the power and turned off the water and removed the old valve. The new water inlet valve had slightly different water tubing self compression connections, so I had to cut off the old tube nuts with a pair of dikes on my existing tubing and simply push the trimmed tubing all the way into the new valve connection ports. After connecting the new water inlet valve, I checked for leaks and found none. I also had to remove my internal ice maker to remove all of the frozen ice. After reinstalling, the next day my ice maker was making ice again. In the mean time I had also ordered a new ice maker, which I probably do not need now. I can't decide whether to keep it for a spare or to request an RMA.
I unpluged the refrigerator closed the water supply valve and removed the screws attaching the valve to the body. I then disconnected the water and electric supply lines. I reconnected the supply lines and electrical lines and reattached the valve to the refrigerator. I turned the water supply back on, checked for leaks and plugged the refigerator back in. I moved the refigerator back into place and waited for the ice maked to "do its thing" The fix worked like a charm.
Turned off ice maker by lifting bar attached to ice maker. Shut off water to fridge. Removed back panel. Removed two nuts holding water inlet valve to fridge. Disconnected electrical plugs from valve. Put valve over bucket and removed water lines. Installed new valve by reverse directions. Turned ice maker back on by lowering bar. No more hollow ice cubed and ice tray fills completely now.
Turned off water supply. Removed two screws holding inlet valve and the two solenoid connectors. Removed water inlet hose coupling and outlet hoses to water dispenser and ice maker from old inlet valve. Reversed this procedure and turned water supply back on. It was that simple! My ice is not plentiful...Thank you Part Select!
The repair to replace the Dispenser Water Inlet Valve located at the lower right rear of the refrigerator went essentially as described in other reported replacements...with one exception. The fitting to attach the water inlet line to the original Dispenser Valve was nylon and larger than the metal male compression fitting attachment on the replacement valve. The two discharge fittings on the new valve were plastic and identical in size as the fittings on the original valve. These two lines were easily moved and installed on the new valve. Fortunately, I maintain some inventory of compression fittings and had on hand the proper size brass nut, insert, and compression sleeve for the 1/4" nylon water line from the wall. the electrical connections were easily installed.
Disconnected the water supply to the refrigerator. Unscrewed two screws that held the water dispenser valve to the refrigerator. Unplugged the two electrical plugs. Disconnected the two water lines, (one for water dispenser, one for the ice maker). Installed the new valve in reverse order of above. Ensured all connections were tight with no water leaks. The ice maker began making ice about one hour later. Since the repairs the ice box stays full of ice.
The repair steps are described very well in this website. I would add that the repair was easier than it looked and that I would check for leaks before mounting the inlet valve to the refrigerator.
1. Determine that ice maker still worked by manually filling it with water2. Made sure the tube that delivers water to the ice maker was not plugged with ice3. Made sure that the water inlet valve filter was clean4. Made sure that the icemaker was still trying to turn on the water delivery valve when the ice maker needed water5. Did a web search for the replacement valve - found it at PartSelect and ordered it.6. Part came quickly and took only 30 minutes to install and it fixed the problem.
Very easy repair, pull power plug, remove panel on the back of refrigerator, remove two screws from frame of refrigerator holding valve in place, pull out valve and remove two wire clips, remove water lines from old valve, reverse order for new valve
unplug the refrigerator, turn the water off to the water filter, remove cardboard cover at the bottom with 1/4'' nut driver. icemaker water dispenser dual inlet valve is located at the bottom right (on my refrigerator). Place a rag under the valve -loosen tubing nut-pull tubing out of valve-gently move tubing out of the way (mine is copper)-remove the mounting screw with 1/4" nut driver-pull the valve out and uplug the two connectors. On the inlet valve I received one was purple one green. the old valve was green on the left red on the right opposite of the original just check the terminal ends. One valve has a wide blade connector. Install in reverse order. i cut the copper tubing back about 1/2" and installed a new compression fitting. Turn the water on and check for any leaks, plug in refrigerator and bleed the water dispenser of any air.
Shut off water to the supply line. Removed rear panal. Disconnected supply line & other 2 hoses. Unscrewed 2 screws to remove the part. Had to go to the local hardware store to get a compression fitting. Installation of new part want well. Now I'm enjoying cold water from my refrigerator door. Thanks guys!!!
The repair was simple.I removed the two screws that hold the valve in place.After removing the valve from the ref. I simply disconnected the wires from the unit .All this was done after I unpluged the ref. from its power source.Then I just did the same process in reverse.I repluged the ref. back into the wall socket and waited about 30-45 minutes for my first batch of ice.Everything worked fine,and I had no problems at all.
First cut off power then turn off water supply. Use nutdriver and removed the two screws that held the pump in place. removed the three water lines and disconnected four wires from old pump. reconnect the four wires and rescrew all water lines back on. turn water supply back on and check for leaks. If no leaks cut power back on and push refrigerator back in place.
