Question about Whirlpool ED5FHEXMQ Side by Side Refrigerator
The clear plastic tube supplying water to the icemaker occasionally freezes. What causes this, and what's the solution?
Justin, the cause is a failed water inlet valve (behind the fridge, near the floor). The solution is to replace the valve.
The part number of your valve is 4389177 and it lists for ~$65.00. You can find one at a local appliance parts outlet or order it online. (actually, the valve kit comes with instructions =) )
Easy to replace. Pull out the fridge, unplug it and turn the water off at the wall. Now use a 1/4" socket or nut driver and remove all the screws holding that cardboard cover in place. Now remove the water hose from the valve and remove the 2 screws that mount the valve to the fridge. Pull the valve out and notice how it's wired and how the plumbing is done. Then simply wire in and put the tubing on the new valve and rebuild everything.
Job time? About half an hour. Good luck and don't sweat it, this repair is a snap.
