This water inlet valve should be located behind the lower kickplate panel in either the right or left corner. The attaching solenoid on the valve open and close according to the desired amount of water needed.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
You'll need to remove the front toe kick and (if installed, the GE Profile baffling for additional silencing action). You will need to disconnect the right wire connection to access the right screw (and may need to use a flat head screwdriver). You can then remove the 2 screws that hold the Valve Water Inlet on. You will then need to loosen and the hose clamp that attaches the water line to the Valve Water Inlet. You may need to force it undone since the rubber connection is pretty secure around the water tube inlet. Disconnect the plastic wire housing from the Valve Water Inlet and you should now have the Valve Water Inlet disconnected.Reverse the order and reconnect everything and you should be good to go! Double-check for any leaks prior to pushing everything back in :)

Part was an exact match. Make sure to use plumber's tape on all threads. Had to really tighten fittings to prevent leaks. Screws are a little difficult to get to. Test for leaks first, before final installation.
Removed the wire clip, then removed two screws on mounting bracket. Then disconected the hose. Removed the brass elbow. Then reversed these steps and I was done.
First of all the part I ordered came a lot sooner than expected.I thought it would take 5 to 10 days.I ordered it on a Tuesday and it was at my door on Thursday.The part was difficult to take off as this was the first time I attempted this.When the new part came, I saw that I went to too much trouble to take the old one off.It was installed in about 40 minutes and we were off and running.
Remove Base Access Panel; Removed Valve Mounting Bracket & Valve; Disconnected Wire Connector; Disconnected Supply Line & distribution Hose; Reversed the Process. Piece of Cake; Part was O.E.M.Component Exact Fit; Took Longer to Write this than it took for Fix. Thanks I Will Be Back for other Parts.!
