Water continues to leak from the water dispenser in the door . Is this controlled by the water valve?
Answer Andy, Yes, water to the dispenser is controlled by the water valve W10408179. However, most dispenser dripping issues are due to, low water pressure, clogged filter 4396508 or air in the system. You'll need to check and replace or remove the filter. Check and tighten all the tube connectors and continuously dispense 1 gallon of water from the dispenser to flush and clear any air or debris in the system.
In your video it show the dual water value on the bottom rear of the refrigerator. I have removed the rear bottom panels. No Valve. In your diagram it looks to be inside the back wall of the unit itself. If so how do I get to it?
Answer Hello Richard,
To access the water valve, the shelves and rear wall of the fresh food compartment have to be removed. This is not as bad as it sounds. I have always believed that emptying the fresh food compartment and removing the shelves is the worst part of this repair.
