Question about Whirlpool 4318047 Whirlpool Kenmore Refrigerator Water Fill Valve

1 Answer

I am getting water to the icemaker, but not the water dispensor. When i disconnected the plastic water line that runs under the refrig to the door at the connection off the valve, I had no water. When I started to disconnect the line to the icemaker in the same way, water started leaking out as I unscrewed the line.

Ice maker is not working


The water tube to the icemaker inside the refrig maybe frozen up. Thaw out with your hair dryer. To make sure the tube is clear. Shut of the water to the refrig, disconnect the inlet water line to the icemaker. Insert a flexable through the connector fitting, I used a zip tie. The flexable item should go all the way to the icemaker

Solution #2 Replace the "water inlet valve" at bottom back right of refrig. Easy To Do.

Drinking water from refrigerator stopped dispensing immediately


At the bottom of the freezer door ( remove the kick plate ) , there will be a water line . Follow this line , about 6 " to a connector . Push in on the white ring and pull out the line , at the same time . Activate the water dispensor pad and see if water flows from the line under the refrig . If it does , then the line in the door is frozen . Either raise the freezer temp for several days , so the line in the door will thaw , turn on the dispensor light for several hours , or , I have heard using an air tank will blow the ice out of the line in the door . If no water comes from the line under the refrig , while activating the pad , then replace the water valve , behind the refrig , the piece the wall water line connects to on the refrig . GE also has a dispensor heater , pt # WR49X10173 which comes with instructions , to keep this from happening again .

The ice works off of a different solenoid than the water dispensor . So , I would suggest this action : At the bottom of the freezer door ( remove the kick plate ) , there will be a water line .

Activate the water dispensor pad and see if water flows from the line under the refrig . If it does , then the line in the door is frozen .

If no water comes from the line under the refrig , while activating the pad , then replace the water valve , behind the refrig , the piece the wall water line connects to on the refrig .

Did the icemaker and water dispensor quit at the same time ? Your model has the 2 lines coming from the top ( filter ) behind the refrig . One line to the wall water line to filter and the other coming down to the water valve . Do you have the filter bypass piece that came with the refrig ? Use it to test . Remove the back panel . If both stopped at the same time , check the connector that the wires connect to . With 2 connectors on each solenoid , those 3 or 4 wires go to a seperate plug in . Check this plug in . If wireing seems ok , remove the larger tubing from the valve by pushing in on the white ring and pulling the tubing out at the same time . Press the water dispensor , and see if water comes out of the valve . If it does , (you said you disconnected the tubing below the freezer door and no water came out while activating the water dispensor ) then the tank at rhe bottom of the refrig section behind the crispers , is frozen . To thaw , use a hair dryer with the light bulbs in the refrig section , unscrewed slightly . This is only for the water dispensor . For the icemaker , disconnect the smaller tubing , while someone else , turns the icemaker on and off several times to see if the valve momentarily opens each time the icemaker is turned on and off . I think the water valve wiring plug , has something to do with this because I have never found a G E where both quit at the same time without it being that plug ( 2 times ).
