Hello...my inlet valve assembly has broken two years in a row at my cabin up north after freezing and expanding following winterizing. I use Arctic Ban anti freeze and the rest of the unit has faired well. However, the supply line continues to have water left in it after blowing out the pipes. Question: How can I get the inlet valve to either blow out without damaging the assembly with too much air pressure, or how can I get the anti freeze to the valve? Or is it just safer to remove the valve every winter? Thanks for your help, Mike

Mikey for Model Number Ldf6920st

ANSWER Hello Mikey. The only way to remove the water from the lines and the valve to prevent freezing is to disconnect the water lines from the valve and drain them. Then remove the valve 5221DD1001F from the unit and shake it until all the water quits leaking from it. This will protect the water lines and the water tank and the valve. Be sure if there is a filter being used, theat you remove it as well and install a new one after the winter. Hope this helps.
