For Whirlpool Icemaker (Part Number: AP4360427)

Answer or Comment

Under this icemaker (p/n AP4360427), you gave the following answer to this question: ------------------------------------- If my ice maker is forming icicles at the bottom (and leaking water everywhere), will I need a new ice maker unit or new water inlet valve - which I understand is on the bottom of the fridge? I have read several conflicting answers online, so I want to make sure I am repairing the right part? A.j. Answer Hello AJ. If the icemaker is over filling, replace the water valve. If it is just leaking, replace the icemaker. -------------------------------------- My question is: How do I know the difference between leaking and overflowing? Is there a test? I never see the flow (or even wet water), only the substantial icicles. Over a few days, it fills up a cereal bowl under my icemaker. My ice cubes do not seem smaller than normal. We have very hard, but softened, water, so we get a lot of buildup on faucets, etc. So, my theory is that the switch has failed mechanically, and probably doesn’t always close completely.

ANSWER Hello Ted. You remove the lines from the water valve and look for the valve leaking. If you see no leaks, it is the icemaker.
