  1. Remove inlet valve-bring to a parts store for a match-up. Some of the collars are the same as a lawn hose connection.

How to connect water line to water inlet valve


The brass ring cannot be reused. You cannot buy it separately but it is inside any 1/4" fittings available in your local adware store.
be sure to cut the end of the waterline and install the ring on a Fresh section. Also, make sure the waterline is lined up with the valve inlet before trying to tighten up.

The ice maker isn't working


Hello there,
You should first try to see if water is getting into the ice maker that is to be used to make ice. That is controlled by the water inlet vale. Also check if the tube that passes water into the ice maker is not clogged with dirt.
You need to run a check on your water inlet valve and the defrost thermostat.
Your icemaker's water inlet valve could be filled with ice. If it is, simply thaw the its water tube with a hair dryer to remove the blockage. Be careful to not melt any plastic parts with the blow dryer. An icemaker's water inlet valve has a filtering screen to block minerals and other debris from entering into your ice cubes. It is possible that the water inlet valve's screen is blocked, and not allowing any water through to make ice. Clean out any built up debris you find. You should be able to pop the screen out of place with a screwdriver and then put it back in place with the screwdriver again once it is cleaned. Alternatively, the water inlet valve itself may have become defective. You will have to test it. If the test proves the valve is defective, replace it. .Before you begin to test your icemaker's water inlet valve, make sure you disconnect the appliance's power supply.
  1. Locate your icemaker's water inlet valve, it is typically located behind a refrigerator. Gently pull your refrigerator away from the wall. You may want to place scraps of carpet, of some other soft material below the fridge to prevent damage to the floor. Turn of the water valve's water supply by closing the shut-off valve in the waterline leading to the water valve. Remove the lower access panel on the back of the refrigerator using a screwdriver or a nut driver.
  2. Place a container under the valve to catch any water that may spill from the water valve and its fill tube. Remove the water valve's fill tubing. Loosen the flare nut on the brass fitting that is found on the inlet side of the water valve. You can use a wrench to loosen the flare nut.
  3. Your water inlet valve is held in place on your refrigerator by means of a metal bracket. Use a screwdriver or a nut driver to remove the screw that holds the water valve's bracket to the refrigerator cabinet. Gently pull the water valve out of the cabinet, and remove the tube from the outlet port.
  4. There are two wires connecting to the terminals of your water inlet valve. If yours is a double solenoid water valve, it will have four wires. Be sure to label each wire so that you know where to reconnect them later. Firmly grasp the metal connector of the wires in order to remove the wires. You may need to use a pair of needle-nosed pliers. Do not pull on the wires themselves.
  5. Set your multi-tester to the R X 1 ohms setting to test for continuity. Place each of the multi-tester's leads on a terminal. Your multi-tester should display a reading between 200 and 500 ohms. Closely examine your water inlet valve. The exact ohm resistance rating you should test for may be marked on the valve.
If the test you conduct with your icemaker water inlet valve does not produce these results, then you should replace the component.
To test you defrost thermostat http://www.fixya.com/support/r10513592-test_defrost_thermostat To replace it: http://www.fixya.com/support/r10513650-replace_defrost_thermostat
If both have been tested and you found out the problem is not from either of them, then i will advice you replace the ice maker mechanism.

Hope this helped. All the best Elect_Comp

Kitchenaid KSRA22lLWH side by side refer. The water dispenser drips constantly, sometimes very frequent, other times not. something need cleaning or is there a part to be replaced?


Hi and erlcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
Usually this is a symptom of a tired inlet water valve that is bypassing water when it supposed to be shut off. I tried your model number there seems to be a problem as it is posted here. However the inlet water valves are very common between units.

This is the water valve & solenoid for your unit:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/whirlpool-water-inlet-valve-kit-item-number-ap3176835.aspx

There are other sources..... I just cited 1 source. I think you can get the valve cheaper of you shop around.

It is located at the end of the inlet water supply line in the rear of the unit. Electrical connectors pull off but NOTE the installed position of the connectors... Getting them incorrect could fill your ice maker with water when you select water in door.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Hello, lost water in the house, now when it came back on, water dispensor has a slow drip (not sure if related)... the dispensor handle seems to be working fine... it dispenses water when pressed.. doesn't...


remove bottom grill.

look for tube which runs thru freezer door.

follow back towards underneath of machince/ find push fit connector.

remove pipe which run thru door from connector and blow thru quite hard. reconnect and press dispenser paddle to allow water back thru

this shhould solve problem in 9/10 cases if it doesn't then you will need your water inlet valve checked

Can't connect water line from the icemaker to the new water valve


the valves they have now only have push locks. so the only thing you need to do is push the water line in and it should lock.

Ice maker and water dispenser water supply is cut off. Plumber checked the supply line and it is operational. The tube inside the refrigerator is crimped behind the vegetable drawer. I have a service...


OK, I would check the supply tube, to see if it may be frozen. if so, you will need to defrost it. This will occur if the inside temp is set to a non-manufacturer specifications(temp is to low). Now, if the tube is not frozen, this will lead to a failed inlet valve assembly.

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.

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

WATERS NOT COMING OUT


Possible reasons:

Water lines frozen.
Defrosting the fridge completely will fix the problem.

Inlet valve at the back of the fridge faulty or blocked.
Replace or unclog main water inlet valve.

Water valve or solenoid in water dispenser assembly faulty.
Replace or fix water valve or solenoid located in water dispenser assembly.
