The icemaker water fill tube provides water to the icemaker so it can produce ice and dispense water. If you notice that your ice maker is not making or dispensing ice, or is leaking, you may need to replace the water fill tube. This water fill tube kit comes with a fill tube and a compression nut. This part is made of white plastic and is approximately 10 inches in length. The ice maker water fill tube is in the rear of the fridge. To complete this repair, you will need a 1/4 inch nut driver and a utility knife. Before beginning this repair, you may want to disconnect the water and power supply to the refrigerator.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
I was able to transfer my old ice maker from my old Roper Refrigerator/Freezer into my new Whirlpool Sidekick Freezer. Everything transferred directly except for the water fill tube. I ordered one on line and simply cut it to the right length, removed the cover plate inside the freezer compartment and the little sticker from the outside. Inserted tube and fastened in place with two screws (not provided but was able to use the screws that were in the holes inside the freezer before the ice maker went in. Works great. By not buying the ice maker with the freezer I saved a hundred bucks or so.

The plastic part that connects the fresh cold water to the ice maker in back of the fridge cracked. Do to the fact that Whirlpool has the part stick out on the back top part of the fridge. So if you push the fridge just an inch too far back the plastic part will crack.I ordered (The Part S&H)- came to about, $11.00.1. Turned off the cold water under the sink.2. In the back of the freezer section. I unscrewed the two screws that held the old broken part to the fridge.3. I opened the freezer section and cleared out the top shelf till I could see the back of the fridge. 4. I removed the old plastic part by pushing & wiggling it about forward and it then extended out the back of the freezer side and then I pulled it out the back and it came out.5. I slid the new replacement part in basically the reverse of step 4.6. I connected the hose in the back. To the new, replacement plastic part, that fills the automatic ice tray with water.7. Once finished I glued a small 2”x2” piece of wood next to the new part so the fridge will never get too close to the back wall so to never break that part that sticks out again. Before just a small bump could break the part and water is everywhere and this leak could happen slowly at first and the next day what a mess.Some fridges have this part recessed into the back of the fridge so this would never happen as my other fridge has.Also, this might seem like more work then it was. It was very simple. I was scared I'd screw it up, but just did it step by step. If I had someone do it. It would have cost me a bundle. It took more time to type this, then to do the work.I had no instructions to follow, but again, was easer then I thought it would be.I hope that this was helpful,Jim Vourakis
Followed the instructions plus rest was intuitive and opposite of removal steps. The touch-up paint matched perfectly and easy to apply and blend with the original paint.
I followed the simple steps outlines in the great video! Thanks
I hand screwed the fill tube into the water tube and stuck it into the freezer hole. I screwed the fill tube to the back of the refrigerator.Thanks so much! You saved me a bundle!!
I unscrewed the fill tube screws from the back of the fridge, and pulled the tube out.Then I put the new tube in, screwed the screws back in and reconnected the waterline.
Simply removed the old and replaced with the new part.
Removed the two screws holding the funnel in place...removed the old one and replaced it witht he new tubing...screwed screws back in and the jov was complete. It actually took longer to get it out of the sack than it did to put it together
shut the power off,on the back ,shut the water off,removed from the bottom all screws from the paper cover,disconnect the water line,unscrew 2 screws from the bracket of the solenoid valve disconnect the wires form the both water and ice maker valve(make shure when you plugg back in do it on right side go by the color wires)
Unscrew broken piece, pull it out and then insert new one, security it in place and connect water line again, make sure It's thight check for leaks and done
Replaced fill tube
Looked up the process on you yube and watched the repair video from the parts website
After finding water on the floor I investigated to find the leak. I Found theat the Icemaker fill tube on the back of the frig was cracked(due to someone pushing the frig back against the wall). Turned off the water supply to the icemaker. Removed the 2 screws holding the tube in place. Slid the tube out and slid the new one in. Replaced the screws and turned the water back on. Very easy, very inexpensive.
Replacement partfit perfectly.
It was easy and quick to find the part that I needed, order it and have it shipped. The fill tube arived in 3 days and was easy to replace.
