This dual water inlet valve is typically located in the back of the refrigerator. It comes with the mounting bracket.
This part works with the following brands: Frigidaire, Gibson, Kelvinator, Kenmore, Tappan & White-Westinghouse.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
the system has two dual valves. 1 for water, 1 for ice maker. valve 1 feeds valve 2 via water filter. Voltage to operate both valves was present when water dispensor switch was activated. Both valves are on bottom backside of fridge in opposite corners. Problem was valve plunger was stuck. Tip: valves come apart without removing the entire assmbly. the coil or plunger can be replaced. The nice thing is water lines feeding the valves don't need to be removed if valve problem is one of the aforementioned parts. Of course make sure water supply to fridge is shut off!

My fridge is over 11 years old and for probably the past few years the water coming out of the dispenser in the door was painfully slow. I tried changing the filter and making sure the debris sceens were not clogged but it didn't help. I was so frustrated I was going to buy a new $3K refrigerator. Instead I found this website, bought both valves that control the water (I didn't know which one was faulty) and replaced them both. I figured $100 repair is an easier pill to swallow than a $3k fridge. Repair took less than 1/2hr and worked flawlessly. It was very easy, just remove the screws that hold the valves in place and swap them out. Thanks to the great website and quick service I'm very pleased with my refrigerator and have an extra $2900 in my pocket :-)
since there are two(2) water inlet valves, had a 50/50 chance of getting the right one,since the water dispenser worked ok, by the luck I replaced the wrong one first, with the part I took out I rebuilt the other valve which was the bad one, put the rebuilt valve back in evertthing was good to go. Had water again.
I removed an access panel loosened the two screws that was mounting the water valve to the refer frame. I took off the three lines to the valve and unplugged the wires from it and reinstalled the new valve. The whole job took 5 minutes.
