KSSC48QMS01 water drips from the feed tube for the ice maker in the freezer compartment how do you access the water valve under the fridge?


Hi carey_ritche,

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.

Before testing the water inlet valve, unplug the refrigerator to avoid an electrical shock hazard.

-->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 multitester. Set the multitester to the ohms setting X100 (if available, otherwise use the nearest ohm setting). Place a probe on each terminal. The multitester 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.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I changed the water filter and water still does not flow from the water dispenser. I have no light on the door of my model. It makes ice.


You need to check for water flow. Is the water flowing when you try to get water at the door? Can you hear it running? If not than it is probably your water valve on the back of the fridge where all the water lines come together at the bottom. If you do hear water running, where is it going? Pull the fridge out and watch the back while you or someone else tries to get water.. You probably have a broken water line. If it is the water valve it is very easy to replace. Unplug the fridge and turn off the water to fridge. The cardboard bottom guard on the back comes off with a 5/16 nut driver. The water valve is blue and has two sets of wires hooked to it. Should also have a 5/16 screw holding it in. Remove the screw. Take a picture of the wires or label them. Unplug the wires and then the tricky part. The water lines come out by pushing in on a little ring right around the tube at the valve. Push in on the ring and while pushing in, pull out the tube.Go get a new water valve and do the reverse to install. Just push the tubes all the way in, no need to push on the ring again. If it is a broken water line then you will need to get more tubing and replace the broken stuff. Do not forget to plug the fridge back in while you get a new water valve or tubing! The wires will be ok.

Wont make ice and frozen water running down door


Your inlet tube that goes to the icemaker may be frozen. To Check: Shut off water supply to Fridge, disconnect the water line that goes to the icemaker at top back. Use a flexible item to insert in the water line connection. I used a zip tie. If the flexible item won't all the through to the ice maker, the line is frozen. Thaw out the tube from inside the freezer with a hair dryer. Re-connect everything, you now have ice . . . Solution #2: You may have to replace your "Water Inlet Valve" located at bottom right rear of Fridge. Easy to do, just follow the color codes, be sure and shut off the water.

The water dispenser unit has a tube coming into the back of the fridge. Anytime you dispense water, it will also leak from this tube in the back. Also, about once a day or so, it will sound like water is...


The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube. You can thaw the fill tube and replace the water inlet valve.

The icemaker overfills and the water keeps running and runs out of the fridge onto the floor


Hi, If the ice maker is overflowing, you will need to change the inlet valve. The inlet valve should only draw water when 120V is sent to the solenoid to open it. The inlet valve is located in back and has the water supply tube attached to it.
I hope this helps you. If I can assist you further, please let me know.
