You need to make sure the coil voltage is correct, the threaded connections are the same thread, the threaded connections are properly oriented, and the new valve will fit into the space of the old valve, or you'll spend more time making it work than the correct valve costs.

If you will post the new valve #, I can try to confirm it's replacement interchangeability.

Cut water supply off to frig disconnect water supply line to frig water inlet valve turn water back on to make sure you are getting good water supplied to water inlet valve some times water cut off gets stopped up. If you are getting good water flow to water inlet valve then check to make water valve is opening up all the way. if not then replace valve.

Only a small amount of water comes into the dishwasher and doesn't seem to spray or wash the dishes. It's a whirlpool quiet partner 4 dishwasher.


There are 2 possible things causing that

1) the water inlet valve is bad and not fully opening to let in enough water

2)water pressure to that inlet valve is restricted,that could be from if it uses a stainless steel flex hose,something under the sink has pinched it perhaps .

To check turn off water remove line where it connects to dishwasher place end in bucket and turn water supply back on...if pressure good the valve needs being replaced

Reply back with actual model number as found off of label on door rim and i'll give ya part number

My dishwasher does not fill with water. It sounds normal but does not fill. It even heats up.


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

Dishwasher not filling problem is caused by clogged inlet valve, first try to clean the inlet valve and the water line coming to the inlet valve. If the issue returns replacing the water inlet valve is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Whirlpool sideby side fridge - water dispenser and


HI. In most cases, this will be the result of a failed inlet valve. There are some other causes, as well. I would suggest to inspect the water lines for freeze over, and obstructions, as well. Normally, the inside lines will freeze over, thus, producing ice within the lines, this will obstruct the flow. Another issue will be the filter. Once this device reaches its filtering limit, it will shut down, thus, preventing the flow to the dispenser/ice-maker assembly. Once you have ruled out these more common issues, Move on to the procedure below for the inlet inspection.


The water inlet valve is located behind your refrigerator. Find the water supply line coming into the valve and turn it off at the source (typically under the sink). Disconnect the supply line. Remove the screws that secure the inlet valve in place.

The water inlet valve is connected by two wires. Label the wire placement on the water inlet valve before disconnecting the wires. The wires are connected to the terminals with slip on connectors

Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If the connectors are corroded they should be replaced.

Inspect the filter screen where the supply line connects. Remove any debris or deposits that may have built up using a toothbrush, or warm running water. If you cannot clear the clog, it will be necessary to replace the valve (the filter is not removable on most inlet valves).


Test the water inlet valve for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X100 (if available, otherwise use the nearest ohm setting). Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should display a reading of 200 to 500 ohms. Close inspection of the inlet valve and especially the coil may reveal the exact ohm resistance rating to test for. If the water inlet valve does not pass this test, it should be replaced.

Whirlpool refrigerator water dispenser won't stop after being pressed and constantly drips after water source is turned off. Whirlpool Model #ED22PQXFW01 SN #SJ4236632


Hi. This will usually be the fault of the water inlet valve. The solenoid based valve may have debris building up, thus, causing the valve not to close properly, after usage. Kindly, follow the procedure below to confirm the damage, replace the valve, if needed.

My whirlpool refrigerator ice maker does not make ice and the in door water dispenser does not dispense water


HI, i would check the temperature in the unit to make sure it is not to low. this will cause the lines to freeze over. If the lines are not frozen, i would advise to move on to the water inlet valve.
