Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly.
You did not mention a model number so here goes from the hip. Most water valves are in the right rear of the majority of refrigerators behind the dark fiberboard cover. There are some that are on the left.
The answer to your question is that most all water inlet valves are light blue in color.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Whirlpool AAA Class Dishwasher


FA - Aquastop error
Check water supply. Low water pressure? Does the machine fill up with water in under 1 min? If not, thats your problem. If this happens during wash cycle, it could be the intake valve for the rinse cycle that is your problem, if you hava doubble/tripple intake valve that is.

Intake Cold water filling into machine while turned off


You have either a faulty solenoid valve on the cold intake or you may have knocked some limescale into the valve while changing the pipes. Try some descaler in the valve first and operate a few times. Hope that makes sense!

Where is fresh water intake valve on jayco 2005 motorhome


Normally would be a door outside to open and you'll see "Potable Water", as well as a city water hook-up where you can run direct from Garden type hose to supply at tap.

No water entering dishwasher electrolux 602


First is water coming into the location and is the valve to the dishwasher open? Next check if the intake hose is bent or squashed. Release the kink blocking water flow.

There is a filter in the intake hose that can get blocked by debris. Turn off the water (at the supply valve) then disconnect the intake hose. Clean the filter. Reconnect the hose and turn the water back on. Check for leaks.

The manual for the unit is available here: http://kitchen.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/electrolux/esi_602.html .

I hope this helps.

''water intake'' button flashes but no action


I would check the water supply lines that run into the washer they may be restricted.Or the solenoid valve is shorted and is not opening the valve to let fresh water in to start the cycle.

Leaking water from the ice maker


It is very unlikely that you have a leaking water line inside the fridge/freezer, as they are protected from damage. If you have water dripping from the ice maker inside the freezer and/or the dispenser in the door, the most likely problem is the valve that supplies water to the ice maker.

You'll need to replace the water inlet valve that supplies water to the ice maker. This is not the same valve that supplies water to the fridge (I believe the yellow colored valve) but rather, it is the blue valve, mounted just above the main water inlet valve.

At the bottom back right side of the fridge, you can remove the covering and see both the yellow and blue valves. The yellow one (on the bottom) is the incoming water control valve, while the blue (upper one) supplies water to the ice maker.

The part runs about $45-50 if you get it yourself, or around $185.00 for a repair person to come out and do the job for you. It should only take about 20-30 minutes to do it yourself with a small 1/4" nutdriver. Part available from Searspartsdirect.com or several other online and local stores. Just call around and give them your fridge model number and serial number, located on the inside of the fresh food section of the fridge - on the "ceiling" just inside the door.

Hope that helps.

Water coming into dishwasher when not running


Removed intake water valve assembly and found a piece of plastic wedged in intake port preventing valve from closing. Piece of plastic was old filler tube from old hot water tank which disintegrated and got into hot water pipes in home. Similar pieces of plastic have affected water mixer valves at various sinks in home and have also plugged aeration screens.
