Does the Dual Water Inlet Valve Kit (Part Number: AP3672839) work indipendantly with the water dispenser and ice maker? can one go bad while the other still works? My water dispenser works, but the icemaker does not get water supply to make ice. Is it a water valve problem or Electromechanical Icemaker problem? (Part Number: AP4345120)
ANSWER Hello Ksahutske,
The water valve does work independently. The water valve is a dual solenoid one for the ice and one for the water. You will want to allow icemaker to cycle and check for voltage to the ice solenoid. If you do not have 120 vac getting to the valve when calling for water then the icemaker or wiring issue would be cause. If there is power then you will want to pull icemaker to make sure that the fill tube is not frozen. If frozen clear out and replace the valve and if there is no clog replace valve WR57X10051.
