This double outlet water valve has quick connections. This valve has 1/4 and 5/16 John Guest fittings for the outlet lines and a 1/4 compression fitting for the inlet line.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
Replacement valve fit perfectly but didn't fix the problem. More troubleshooting found blockage through the water filter assy although I don't use a filter and just have the the bypass plug installed...7 years like this. Used compressed air to blow out the line and got some crud out. Works now but can't turn water pressure up full or line hammers and stops flow. Left supply valve open slightly which supplies ice maker fine and dispenser ok. Must be something wrong with internal spring stopper in filter assy...keeps water from pouring out if filter or bypass not installed.

My GE SideBySide fridge stopped making ice. The green LED light on the icemaker was not blinking. The water dispenser worked fine. Fridge is only 5 years old. Freezer temp set at 7 degrees...fridge at 37 degrees. I have been using these temps since new. GE hotline suggested freezer temp should be at zero degrees. That did not work. Second call suggested an airflow issue within the freezer...there should be 1 inch space between food and back wall. Still no ice. The water valve looks to be the issue. I ordered it and got it in 2 days. Valve is in the back bottom, refridgerator side. Push the white collars around the water hoses...Then pull the hoses out. An adjustable wrench removes the nut for the inlet hose. Disconnect 2 electrical plugs. Be sure to push the water hoses fully into the new valve. I pulled the white collars out a bit to insure a tight fit. I was surprised at how simple this was to install. As it turns out, I was still getting no ice. I ordered a new ice maker and now I'm getting ice. The icemaker was EVEN EASIER to install.
Changed out the double outlet valve which was pretty easy, after getting the right one, had the wrong part number for the first valve, not PartSelects fault, but still no water.Before changing valve, ice maker stopped making ice, figured the valve went bad on both points. After changing valve, got ice but still no water.Now what? Pulled the front cover off the freezer door where you get ice and water and found the bracket, } that holds the micro switch that works the water valve broken and the switch dangling. I screwed the switch back to the spacer between it and the frame and glued the spacer to the frame with plastic crazy glue.Got water!
Rolled the fridge away from the wall, unplugged the unit from the wall outlet, and removed the back panel by taking out the 6 1/4" nuts that held it in place. Vacuumed the dirt and dust out, and sneezed viscously for 2 minutes. Removed the 3/16th nut holding the water relay. removed the inlet water line, and quickly replaced it. dried off, then went down stairs and turned off the saddle valve. mopped up the water, then removed the water inlet valve. Removed the 2 water lines to the unit (Ice and water feeds) and removed the 2 wire connectors. reversed the process in installation, except the drying myself off part, and sneezing from the dust and dirt.
replaced the water valve,valve does work but still no water to dispenser problem inside door
-unplugged the refrigerator-replaced water filter inside refrigerator-turned off water suppy at valve-unscrewed tin cover on lower part of refrig-took brace off that holds the double water valve-disconnected water lines and caught excess water in a bucket-pulled out both electrical plugs out of old dual pump-blew out with air the black water line that runs diagonally from the part to the top of refrig going into ice make(to make sure not clogged) - Installed the new part and reconnected all of the above.plugged in the refrigeratoropened the valve to let water flow inot refrigerator.done--but still no ice cubes? HELP!
replaced double outlet water valve. Valve works as it should. Shipping was much quicker than I expected.
After gaining access to the back of the refrigerator. I shut off the water valve and pulled the electrical power plug. I removed 6 screws from the access panel. I then removed 1 screw holding the water valve. I disconnected the electrical connectors. Disconnected the water inlet tubing with an adjustable wrench. I removed the water to the door and water to the ice maker by pushing in on the collar which released the tubing. I discarded the old valve and installed it in reverse order. Did not fix the problem. My next guess is the control module.
Removed back lower panel, removed valve, ordered part on internet, cleaned motor and back of fridge. Most time spent was waiting for delivery of ordered part. Part received and installed in 15 minutes after reviewing instructional video included in my email verifying my order, fridge pushed back into place, waited for ice maker to refill.....DONE. So easy. Thanks guys. Job well done.
I went on Google to get GE Tech Manual. But really, undid screws for back plate; Dismounted (1 screw) Water Solenoid assembly; disconnected 3 water hoses into solenoid; unplug two power connectors. Then reversed the process with new Water Solenoid...works great!
Replaced filter and double outlet valve. Checked to make sure waterline not frozen. Repair fixed icemaker but water thru door not working. Will do without water thru door. Probably need 145.00 dollar mother board ,but do not want to spent that much money on repairing this one. Probably can get new refrigerator for less than 600.00 dollars.
turn off water remove back cover remove 1 screw holding water valve use wrench to remove main water line input push up holders on bottom of selinoids pull both output lines loose disconnect two electrical plugs reinstall new valve in reverse order
watched your video,went to work
It was as simple as taking off back panel and disconnecting 3 tubes and and two plugs to remove old valve and attaching the new valve piece to the 3 tubes and two plugs! It actually took more time getting the panel off than making the repair AND it saved us a little over $300 as the repairman quoted a price in excess of $350 to repair it. He was actually the one to tell us to buy the part ourselves and repair it. We are thankful being able to get the part and for an honest repairman.
I watched the video instruction and it was very easy to replace. took me less than 30 minutes.
