old inlet tube was leaking and direct replacement was out of stock
I replaced the filter inlet tube with this filter inlet tube because the refrigerator looked the same and I thought it would therefore be approximately correct. It was except for the connection to the copper tube feeding into the plastic tube. The fitting was not compatible and needed to be cut off and replaced with a new ferule and fitting purchased from a local hardware store for about two or three dollars.

water supply line to refrigerator developed three pinholes
I watched the recommended you tube video multiple times. I made sure to have the tools and towels ready. I shut off the water supply line, and capped it, removed the backing, and inspected the back. By following the video, the rest was easy. I recommend removing any built up dust and dirt while you have the front apart.

Leaking from the supply line to the water filter
Purchased a new line, watched the video. The video was a bit misleading the filter housing does not slide out the front to access the removal of the line. I doing so I broke the clip holding the smaller line had to order the complete housing. 90 dollars it's repaired now so all is well .

Refrigerator Water Line Leak
My water line to refrigerator sprung very small leak due to years of rubbing on its own bracket holding it to back of refrigerator. The removal and installation are exactly like shown in the video on PartSelect website. A possible problem can arise when removing and re-inserting the water line into "colletts" on the refrigerator filter housing. The grey circular colletts push in and out, not far, but after years of use can be brittle. If you move the colletts too much, a small part of plastic can snap, and you will then need an entire new filter housing. Be gentle when depressing the collett to pull out and push in the water line.

Inlet tube cracked and started leaking
Woke up to a wet wood floor and rug due to inlet tube spinging a leak/cracked. Watched repair video on utube. Ordered the part. And did the repair. But the other parts that the tube connects to started leaking due to age I assume and moving things to reach the part that tube went to. Old parts started leaking when I turn water back on. So now I have to replace the inlet valve and filter sleeve next. Hoping that will solve the issue and have ice again with out a wet floor and rug.

Pinhole leak in the water supply line to the fridge + bad ice guide
Reviewed the installation instructions...and it turned out they were both dead on! Had to loosen the parts that were accessible from the front (but not remove them) as I had to work the fridge around the island in the kitchen and had some access restrictions, but other than that it was a simple and easy fix.

Inlet water tube developed small split, and was leaking
Directions say to remove tube from filter inlet, but could only get one arm under the refrigerator. Connection was located about dead center under the box. Was much simpler to remove the two screws at the front that hold the filter itself in place. Whole unit slides right out and was 10 seconds to pop out old tube and insert new tube.

The filter inlet tubing popped out of the connector that connects the main water line and the filter. The compression nut could have failed. I tried to put the tubing through the compression nut and back on the connector, but as soon as the water turned back on the pressure pushed the tubing out. I'm not sure if the compression nut failed, the tubing, or there is too much pressure in the filter. Will this part be able to connect to the connector with a possibly failed, old compression nut? Thank you

Does the new water inlet kit come with a new plastic fitting, as i have broken mine. Should have watched the video first.
For model number ED5FHEXMB00

Hi Tom, Thank you for your question. Yes, the quick fittings would be part of your water inlet valve. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

My refrigerator makes a hammering sound when dispensing water thru the door or when the ice maker fills. What could be the problem? Thank you.
For model number ED5LVAXVQ00
PartSelect logo
Hi Eddie, Thank you for your question. If you are hearing a sound like a jackhammer when you are getting water from the dispenser, the issue is with the water inlet valve. The noise is caused by a mechanical failure inside the water inlet valve and it will need to be replaced. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Where can i purchase just the hose retainer (5/16" not the 1/4") for the water filter? It is the part that must be depressed to remove the hose from the filter assy.
For model number 106.51574200
PartSelect logo
Hello Jaime, Thank you for your inquiry. The hose retainers that the lines go into are part of the water filter housing assembly, part# WP2186443, and are not sold separately. Good luck with your repair!

Filter is missing. Filter housing is gushing water. Do i have to have filter inserted to stop leak and to get ice and water?
For model number TS22AFXKQ00
PartSelect logo
Hi Marie, Thank you for your question. There should be a water filter in place in the water filter housing. A water filter may stop the leak, but you should also check the water filter housing to make sure it is not the cause and check the tubing and the water inlet valve as well to see if they are working correctly. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!
