Ice Maker not receiving water past the valve? at the bottom of refrigerator.

tap gently on solenoid . it is probably stuck from corrosion. if that doesnt work you will need a new one. go to any appliance parts dealer they should be able to supply you with a aftermarket replacement water valve.

Drain valve leaking. Gor replacement part. Cannot get old valve off . Does the whole valve come off , unscrew or pull off? serial number is RN1296A 18392. Will the new part fit the same New...

If valve is dripping, buy garden hose cap and screw onto valve.
Whole valve unscrews counterclockwise.
If valve is plastic, expect it to break off.
If valve is brass, use cheater bar on your pipe wrench.
I don't know that serial number or part number, but drain valves are standard 3/4" pipe thread.

Drain valve can be rusted in place and impossible to remove without draining tank and putting water heater on it's side.
Install new water heater so drain valve is accessible, and buy new water heater with brass valve instead of plastic.

I have a roper,1 year old .The water will not stop running on spin cycle or when stopped ? Have to turn the water valve off ?

First off, you say one year old. If it is one year or under, it has a one year warranty and you need to contact your nearest authorized whirlpool repair. Your problem is that the fill valve where the two hoses fasten onto needs replacing. You can go to your nearest parts house with your complete model number and they can help you get the right part. Thanks

My washer keeps filling with water in the off position at first the cold water would barley run and know it runs slow all the time in the off position it's a roper washer

Your water inlet valve has probally failed.
First you should remove the hoses and clean the screens in the ends of the hose, some hoses have screens in both ends. While the hoses are removed look inside the water inlet valve there should be a screen in there also remove and clean the screen out. Some screens will not be removable so you will need to clean in place or remove the water inlet valve. If all is clear you will need to check the solenoids on the water inlet valve for power.If the solenoid has power when put in a fill cycle and no water eneters your washer you will need to replace the water inlet valve. Most water inlet valves must be replaced as a unit, so if one solenoid fails you replace the hole valve assembly. These are inexpensive and easy to replace. There is a video at that will walk you thru the testing procedure. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same. If you need help disassembling there are also videos of disassembling most styles. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models will be available.
