Would this water inlet valve work for my Maytag fridge model (MSD2732GR)?
Answer Hello Daniel! Yes, the water filter 61005626 is the correct replacement listed for your icemaker assembly. Thanks!
Your site says I can use the 5626 so I bought it. But it don't work. My water lines are threaded not snap on. The water outlets need to be threaded.
Answer Hello Stephen. The water valve you have is correct for your model. The original valve was discontinued by Whirlpool and is no longer available. This is the replacement. The valves no longer have the threaded connections. You will need to cut off the threading on the line and attach using the push in connection.
I want to add a filter to my water line when I replace the water inlet valve assembly. How can I do that? Thanks, C
Answer Hello Cheryl,
You can add an in-line filter 4392949 by cutting the water line to the unit and adding it at least 2 feet before the water valve connection. If the water line is copper, you will have to cut it with a tubing cutter. Be sure the water line doesn't get crimped when pushing the unit back into its' installed position.
Our icemaker has stopped working. No water is coming to the icemaker, will replacing the water valve fix this? Thanks, Miriam
Answer Miriam, Yes, replacing the 61005626 Water Inlet Valve, may solve the issue. It's a good place to start. You forgot to include a model number for the refrigerator, and depending on the machine you may have a "secondary" fill valve that has a failed solenoid as well, so you may want to re check and replace both valves, if equipped.
