Question:

The problem i am having is with my almost 10 year old refrigerator. It is making "hollow" and or light ice cubes and the water dispenser is coming out in just a dribble or lacking any pressure. I replaced the water filter and tested the water pressure (that was a steady stream). What else do i need to check?

Jim for model number GX5SHTXTS00
Answer:

Hi Jim, Thank you for your question. I would suggest checking your water inlet valve to see if it is working correctly. It seems like that may be the part that is the issue. You can test that part with a multi meter to check it. Good luck with your repair.

Question:

My maytags water dispenser steadily pours water out of door. Would this be due to water inlet valve? Single switch for water and ice in door works when on ice function.

James
Answer:

Hi James, Thank you for the question.This would most likely be caused by the water inlet valve becoming "stuck" open and allowing water through to the dispenser. Hope this helps!

Question:

Water is not getting to the ice maker. It is however getting to the dispenser in the fridge itself. How do I know if the water valve is working or not. I can hear and see the ice maker going through it's cycle, just not making ice.I already replaced the filter.

Mike for model number 596.76604600
Answer:

Hi Mike, Thank you for the question. The valve has two sides, one for the ice maker and one for the dispenser. In some cases when the valve becomes defective it is only on one side, so it is possible for the ice maker side to be defective and have the dispenser still operating. You are able to test the valve with an Ohm meter. Here is a link on how to test the valve. Hope this helps! https://www.partselect.com/Refrigerator+test-water-valve+repair.htm

Refrigerator sat in storage in sub zero weather, water in dual water inlet valve froze, cracking valve.

This is the 2nd time I have used PartSelect, and this experience was as pleasant as the 1st. The exploded-view diagrams make parts identification very easy; and the photo of the actual part is such a great idea, it allows you to verify what you need. I also got my part (cross country, in 3 days)

Repair Procedure: Shut off water supply. It may be easier to work if you disconnect the water supply tube, but it is not required. On the backside of the refrigerator, remove the bottom, black plastic protection panel. You will need a nut driver or battery-powered screw driver with a 3/8" socket tip on it. Next, remove the black metal panel that holds the water inlet valve in place. Remove screws with a nut driver. 1st remove the two flat-pin power connectors. (They are different sizes and color-coded, so there is no room for making a re-hookup mistake). Then proceed to remove the hoses. The hoses are pressure-lock tubing, so push the plastic disk in or down where the tube goes into the main body of the valve. Do this for all three hoses (tubes). Switch water valves and reverse the procedure. **Be certain that the tubes are pushed back in as far as they can go; if you do not re-seat the tubes, the pressure from the water going back in the valve, will blow the tubes right out the valve (ask me how I know this!). Once reassembled, turn the water back on slowly. Make sure you turn the water supply valve all the way open, it seats itself internally when you do and is less prone to drip leaks. That's it! (As a former kitchen remodeler, I find this a great DIY project).

Water leaking from water inlet valve

Ok, pretty easy repair when the parts are correct (first part was faulty, parts select quickly sent me a new one)

First is removal, these tubes are in there very tight, they can be pulled out but weaken the lines and it is not likely to work without severly stretching the line to the point of breakage, if you have to cut them do so carefully and take off as little tubing as possible as you need the length to feed from top to bottom.

Once you have cut all the lines, or pulled them out (I was able to get 2 out without cutting) then make sure the edges are smooth, attach the inlet valve to the plate and just push them tightly into the new valve making sure you route the lines correctly.

Turn everything on and run the water line to see if it works. If no leaks, screw it back to the refrigerator and you are good to go. Takes maybe 20 minutes at most.

Water would not dispense

First turned off the water at the valve. Next I undid the 5 screws holding the plate that holds the pump. Next disconnected the power connectors, then the water lines. Next undid the screw holding the pump, removed pump. Next, mounted the new pump to the plate, this was tricky because it has to fit kind of upside down, so you have to wrangle it into the proper position then align the screw hole. Next, secured it to the plate with the screw, re-connected the water lines, then the power. Before mounting it back to the fridge, I tested to see if it worked, well, it didn't. My heart sank. I re-checked all connections, I redid the entire process, disconnected and re-connected and still did not work. I researched the problem online and someone posted maybe the water filter might be clogged or defective. So I removed the water filter and put the stop plug in, and it worked perfectly. I went and exchanged the filter and plugged it in and still had the same problem. I am now suspecting the filter receptacle is the fault, but we will do without that for the time being. But the pressure is much better so changing the pump was still necessary. All in all a very interesting repair. I learned a lot about how the system works and now I need to replace the damper, it is very noisy.

Inlet valve was leaking water...

Took the valve off from the back of the frig and reinstalled the part I purchased from Part Select. The part was an exact OEM part, not a substitute that others had. The install went very smooth and once again we have water and ice from our frig. Can't thank Part Select enough for the thier sales team and the order department. They made sure that I got the exact part that I needed. Customer for life.... Mike D. Wisconsin

Froze and cracked

unsrewed the back plate, removed three tubes. Then I removed old valve and replaced with new. Pluged two harnesses back in the new valve. Truned water on and checked for leaks and operated the filtered water tap and the ice maker. All went well.
I really like your site for the pictures included with the part, I like to see what I'm ordering.
