Is there a video on how to install the W10217917 valve?
There is no video showing how to replace the water valve on a icemachine. For this part you will need to shut the water off and remove the lower cover on the front of the unit. Once removed there will be 2 screws holding the valve in place. Remove the screws and disconnect the wire harness going to it. Once this is done, push on the yellow ring around the tubing on the valve and pull on the tube. This will pull the tube out of the valve. You would do the same thing on the other tubing and install the new one.
My ice maker runs water in to bin. Still makes ice but now all is frozen in the bin. Is it the water valve?
Normally the water valve would not cause this type of issue unless it is continuously streaming. You will want to check to make sure that the fill cup is not freezing over and pull the icemaker out to make sure that the mold is not deteriorating. The deterioration of the coating on the mold is most likely the cause. When the mold deteriorates the water will drip out onto the ice that is in the bin. If the water seems to be dripping towards the back of the bin then the fill cup may have ice in it. If you clear the ice and the issue continues to occur then replace the water valve.
Located a leaking inlet valve - W10217917 or K-77195. But I cannot figure out how to get the water tubes disconnected. They dont seem to pull or twist off. Help please.
Answer Hello Rusty,
Push the water line into the valve and while pushing, hold the ring around the line toward the water valve. While holding the ring in this manner, the water line will slip right out. To reinstall the water line, first make sure there is no indentation around the end of the water line about 1/4 inch from the end. This will prevent a seal. If the indentation is present, cut the line off squarely at the indentation. Now place the water line into the valve and push hard. You should feel it pop in. When this happens, pull the line to seat the seal.
The ice maker is not getting water, however, the water dispenser in the door does work. How do I fix this problem?
Answer Hello James,
The water valve on the unit is a dual valve. This means that one side of the valve is for water dispense and the other is for the ice maker fill. You will most likely have to change the dual water inlet valve (AP5263471) to correct this issue.
Ice maker quite working. I installed a new icemaker and the unit is not getting water. What could be causing this issue?
You will want to check the fill tube to make sure that it is not frozen. If the fill tube is not frozen then make sure that the icemaker is cycling. If so then the water valve would be faulty.
