Buy an install kit for the dishwasher. (preferably with a braided steel covered hose) That has an end that will fit the dishwasher, then ask at the hardware store what you will need to adapt to the plastic line. I really can't tell you without more information as to what kind and size of plastic pipe you have. This will be a standard plumbing part and will probably cost well under $5.

I have a 95 Tahoe with an engine oil cooler adapter. I removed the metal lines from the adapter and replaced the plastic quick connect parts and the fittings on the adapter when I reconnected the lines...


Your biggest mistake is to replace metal fittings with plastic quick connect fittings. Heat and oil destroys plastic and you have set yourself up for a line failure that will drain the sump in seconds and ruin the engine . Plastic quick fits are for cold low pressure water only

GE / Hotpoint S xS Refrig: Will not dispense water


Remove lower grill and disconnect the water line going through the freezer door hinge. Usually it is a push lock fitting, which requires you to push the ring on the end of the fitting toward the center of the fitting while pulling (not hard) on the plastic tube. Now place a pan under the separated plastic hose and try the water dispenser. If water comes out, your problem is a frozen water line in the freezer door. A warmer freezer temp may help, or you can order and install a WR49X10173 water tube heater. (the heater may take 24 hours to thaw the line, but I have used it successfully several times. Cost about $50) If no water comes out the separated tube when you try to dispense water, reconnect the tube at the hinge by pushing the plastic line back into the fitting. Now, at the back of the refrig., disconnect the water line going from the water valve to the fresh foods compartment. Try to dispense water. No water at valve outlet = bad valve. Water dispensed from valve now = frozen water filter or water line at back bottom of fresh foods compartment. (make sure you disconnect the right tube. If in doubt, disconnect them both, just get them back correctly so your icemaker continues to work) Send me additional comments if needed. Don't rate before you try all the steps.

Instructions for installation of amana water inlet valve 12544001


Hello,
I know that seems like the incorrect part but it replaces the water valve that had 2 outlet hoses connected to it. To replace that;
Turn off house water supply to old valve and disconnect tubing
remove old valve and unplug the 2 wire connections and the 2 outlet hoses
The two outlet hoses were what was considered a Y hose..cut off semi clear plastic tubing a inch back where the 2 semi clear plastic tubes merge and become only 1
pull one of the plastic nuts off of the Y tube
slip it onto the end of the newly cut single tube
slip single tube into outlet threaded outlet of new valve and tighten that plastic nut
connect the 2 wire plugs onto new valve
remount to back of refrig
attatch house water supply to metal fitting that has/had protective rubber cap over it (oh of course remove procetive rubber cap and discard it)
turn water supply back on
it may up to 4 hrs for water to flow to icemaker so best to test by dispensing water through freezer door

Good luck,any questions or problems please reply and i'll help you,
Gene

Water line is leaking where it connects on the upper rear


The part number is an "elbow water fitting" and is available for purchase for $9.20 (+ shipping, etc.) at:

http://www.appliancepartsnationwide.com/TFX24RLK/31769.htm

I would obtain new related parts for this fitting while at it too - unless you know which part exactly is the source of the problem.

Please take a moment to rate this reply if you found it helpful. Good luck!

Comment by MNTECH, Sorry, didn't notice that I put an extra zero in the part number. It should be a WR49X10173
