Question about installation of part AP2071738. Previous owner of my home installed a water inlet valve on the GE Profile refrigerator that bypassed the water filter, so the two lines going to the water filter aren't connected to anything.
In installation AP2071738, I'm not sure which line to connect to the orange "nozzle" and which to connect to the black "nozzle" on this part. Both lines are clear and neither are denoted as "in" or "out."
Maybe it doesn't matter which way the water flows through the filter, but I thought I'd ask to find out. Maybe there is a way by the flow of water to tell if it is connected incorrectly?
ANSWER Hello Tommy. It should not affect the operation as this is the passage for the valve. If it does not work, you can always reverse the lines, but either way should be fine as long as they are filter lines.
