If I replace the whole ice maker does it come with new water inlet valve?
ANSWER Hello Ricky,
If you order the replacement icemaker assembly 2198597 by the model number, it will not come with the water valve. If you order an icemaker kit, these normally include the icemaker, the water valve, an ice bucket, the electrical harness for the icemaker, and the associated water lines. This may seem like a simple way to save a few dollars but you will not receive the correct water valve since it will be a single, (for icemaker only, not for water dispense), but the new icemaker will also have to be taken partially apart to install the proper ice stripper from the old assembly since the kit does not come with the proper part for the design of your model.
