CustomerEric from Westerville, OH

Water leaked out on floor from behind refrigerator.

First turned water source off and unplugged fridge. Then removed back panel, turned water supply back on and saw leak from valve. Turned water off again and ordered new valve. Paid for 3-5 day shipping, but it came next day! Removed single bolt holding bracket it place. Simple firm pull release of water lines feeding from valve. Unscrewed brass water supply nut with crescent wrench. Marked four electrical leads so I'd know where to replace them. Then repeated process in reverse to install new valve. Simply push water lines back into color coded valve outlets.Also replaced water filter and found that the GWF Filter is now the MWF fitler.

CustomerRich from Keller, TX

Water valve leak

Pull fridge out and turned water supply off. Removed four screws to take shield off back of fridge. Unscrewed assembly part from fridge. Turned water on slightly to identify leak and identified leak in valve system. Shut water back off and ordered replacement part. When part came, removed water line from assembly; moved electrical and water hose connections from existing part to new part one by one to be sure t they were in correct place. (To remove water lines, push o ring toward the assembly and pull hose out. To put into new bracket, merely slide in and they will lock in place) Fasten water line on new part using teflon tape. Turn on water slowly to check for leaks. Attach back to fridge and replace shield. VERY EASY!!

CustomerForrest from Surprise, AZ

Water dispenser on door not working, but ice maker makes ice.

The hard part of this repair is moving the refrigerator away from the wall and cleaning all the dirt from the fan, condenser and area. Removing the old water valve takes about 5 minutes. Be sure to shut off water completly at the wall. I removed ea. water line one at a time from old valve & installed in new valve at the same time, to keep in order. Very easy to remove electrical connectors, one at a time and clip to new valve in proper order. I put some teflon tape on the main water connection & reconnected water line to valve assembly. Moved valve assembly back into position and installed with one screw. Installed the back cover with 5 screws, moved the refrigerator back and checked for water. The water dispenser works better than new and so does the icemaker. Thanks to partsselect.com for the help.

CustomerJudy from Lenzburg, IL

Ice maker stopped producing ice

I determined that the icemaker was not getting any water to the unit. The icemaker was still cycling but was not filling with water. I assumed the water valve was malfunctioning so I looked up the schematic drawing on the site and ordered the Water Valve & Bracket Assembly. It arrived within days. It took less than 10 minutes to install with miniumal effort. Within minutes the water could be heard flowing into the unit. Within an hour we had ice again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
