The water inlet valve on your refrigerator allows water to enter the ice maker and water dispenser. If your ice maker or water dispenser is not functioning properly, or you notice a leak, you may need to replace the single outlet valve. This single outlet valve has 1/4-inch compressions fittings and is intended for use with refrigerators that make crescent-shaped ice cubes. As per the manufacturer, this valve has a new quick connection. You must cut the retaining nut off your current plastic water line, and gently push it into the new valve. Be sure to disconnect the water and power sources from the refrigerator before you begin this repair.

My Son removed two screws, electric plug and two (2) compresion nuts. He had to bend the bracket to fit, then replace it, in reverse order except the filler tube on the new valve was of a "stabb-in" type. Job was a piece of cake and this small project, solved all our problems with the Ice maker.
Three easy steps, take off old part then all you do is tighten nut on one end of part and then just push other end of pipe down in slot. Did half to remove nut off the top end of tube very simple to do
Shut the water off, removed two screws,removed the inlet, from the water valve then the line from the valve to the ice maker. Then you reverce these steps and you are done. The shipping time was the best I have ever seen. Thanks

First i shut the water valve off going to the fridge, I then removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires. Then i took the water line loose to the element, reverse the prosses and put all back on new element and installed,
