Product Description

Refrigerator Single Water Inlet Valve Specifications

The single water inlet valve, also known as a water solenoid valve, is used for refrigerators. This part is a solenoid-operated switch that releases water from the supply line to the water valve and into the icemaker mold when activated. If your icemaker is making small cubes, does not dispense ice or water, or leaks, this replacement could solve the issue. The tools needed for this repair are a 1/4 inch nut driver and a utility knife. Refer to the diagram provided by the manufacturer for further instructions. As a safety precaution, remember to unplug your dryer from the power source.

When testing my ice maker water-inlet valve for continuity, i get a reading of 175 to 180. Does this mean the valve is bad and needs to be replaced or is it in the acceptable range?
For model number 2182104
Hello Rob, Thank you for contacting us. You would need to see if it is receiving the proper voltage of 120VAC. For continuity you are really only concerned that it reads a closed circuit. I hope this helps

Water leaks out of the ice maker when making ice cubes in 2 spots leaving frozen globs of ice cubes stuck together in the tray.
For model number MFF2258VEM5
Hi Ginette, Thank you for the question. If the icemaker is leaking I suggest removing it from the appliance to see if there is crack somewhere the leak can be coming from. It is possible the Ice Mold may be damaged and needs to be replaced. If there are no cracks or damage you can see, you may need to replace the ice maker. Hope this helps!

The valve doesn't allow water to the maker
For model number MITXEMMWS03
Hi Don, Thank you for your question. If the water inlet valve is not allowing water to go to the ice maker it may need to be replaced. Also check the tubing between the ice maker and water inlet valve to see if there are any blockages. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

I have ice being made but minor leak at inlet to ice maker and water seems to build up into a clump of ice in back left corner of ice tray
For model number MBF2256KEB
Hi Dave, Thank you for your question. If there is a leak, check the water lines to see if there are cracks and that it is fitting properly. Also check the water inlet valve to make sure it is not malfunctioning. You will need to test it with a multimeter. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Why does water leak into ice tray before freezing but still makes ice cubes
For model number MBF2256KEB
Hi Dave, Thank you for your question. If water is leaking into the ice tray, there may be an issue with the water inlet valve or the water lines. You will need to check the parts to see which one is causing the issue. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Water is dripping in the rear of my refrigerator from the freezer level down into the refrigerator section. It accumulates in the bottom of the refrigerator and eventually will reach a level where it overflows out of the front of the refrigerator onto our floor.
For model number ET8GHMXLQ00
Hi Emile, Thank you for your question. If there is water leaking from the freezer section into the refrigerator, then you may have a clogged or frozen drain line. If this is the case you will need to either clean the line of debris or if there is ice, you will need to clear the drain with some warm water. Also make sure the refrigerator is level. This will allow the water in the refrigerator to drain correctly. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Hi. Do you just push the white plastic water line into this part? What holds it in there? Thank you Greg
For model number WP2315576
Hello Greg, Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, the plastic water line fits into the yellow quick connect on the valve, which locks onto the line and holds it in place. Good luck with your repair.

No water feed to icemaker
To troubleshoot - Check water supply to valve. It f that's good - remove back plate, remove water valve reconnect inlet line, disconnect electrical connector, place valve over a pan with outlet fitting disconnected, temporarily connect 110 VAC with clipleads to water valve solenoid. No water flow means valve is not opening. To install new valve, connect outlet line, and wiring connector, then insert in cabinet and install 2 screws, reinstall back plate, connect water inlet line.

ice maker wasn't making ice cubes
I first poured water into the ice maker itself and it made ice, so knew the ice maker itself was working ok. Turned the water valve at the wall off, removed the inlet valve from the back of the fridge with a nut driver, disconnected the solenoid wires and disconnected the water supply line entering the inlet valve and turned the water supply back on and found that the water was flowing ok out of the supply line. Reconnected the water line to the inlet valve and disconnected the water line going from the inlet valve to the ice maker and reconnected the wires to the solenoid on the inlet valve and found no water going through and so determined that the inlet valve/solenoid was faulty and easily replaced it. Note that an ohmeter check said the solenoid was ok, so it could have been that the filter screen inside the inlet valve was blocked. It's a sealed unit, so there was no way to take the screen out to check.

Water was overflowing into ice bin.
First I ascertained that valve was faulty. Ordered replacement and installed without issue. Water now overflowed only during fill and found that filler neck had ice in it as a result of initial leakage. Defrosted with a hair dryer, removed ice plug and it now works as advertised.

Leaking water inlet valve
This would have been a less-than-5-minute repair except for one item. The water intake nossle was 180 degrees from the original part. As a result, the copper water inlet tube would not fit in the old space and still allow me to reattach the valve to the freezer chassie. I ended up leaving the valve hanging loose under the freezer. I spent most of my time trying to fit the valve into the old space.

Unplug freezer. Disconnect electrical connections (pull apart). Remove one screw holding the valve to the chassie. disconnect water inlet pipe and water outlet pipe from old valve.

Reconnect electrical connection to new valve. Reconnect in and out water hoses. Reconnect valve to chassie. Plug freezer back in. Finished

Everything works just fine !

No ice was being made
I looked up the refrigerator on the internet and found this website. I got the diagram of the parts of the icemaker and found that the valve must be defective because no water was coming up to the icemaker.
I ordered the part which came the next day. Took out the screws, conected the water line to the new part. moved the electrical connection to the new part and we had ice. Saved a lot of money that the plumber would have cost.

Icemaker just stopped making ice one night
I pulled the refrigerator out from the wali slowly so not to damage the water line to the ice maker. Then with a nut driver I removed all the screws holding the back plate on. Being careful not to kink the water line, I used the adjustable wrench to losen the water line feed nut and the nut that goes to the line to the icemaker. Then I removed the screws holding the valve in place finished unhooking the water lines with my fingers. I then got the new valve and finger tightend the main water supply nut to the inlet side, then I pushed the plastic supply tube going to the icemaker into the valve. The new valve does not use a nut to attach the tubing it is a presure fit very easy.

old valve was not shutting off fully, flooding ice-maker, creating a glacier
Shut off water supply, removed old valve (two screws, 1/4' nut driver), disconnect electrical plug, remove water lines (adjustable wrench). Cut fitting off tube to ice-maker (new unit has a push-to-connect fitting). Replace water lines and electrical connector. Mount valve back on cabinet. Turn water back on.

ice maker had stopped working
Valve-inlt had stopped functioning. The longest part of the repair was determining that the water lines weren't clogged and were working efficiently. Replacing the faulty valve only took a matter of minutes. The part was ordered and shipped in a timely fashion. Thanks!
