Water Inlet Valve
David from VA
Water flow was slow and low pressure, reservoir in ice maker would not fill, the pump would aerate noisily, ice cubes were thin and small.
Screwdriver-flathead, phillips and torx bits.
Repair & Advice
Easy to find and remove pump from left front side of ice maker, quick connect fittings for water lines are not intuitive to me-have to push the water line and collar into the fitting, hold the collar in and then pull the tubing out. Easy enough to insert the tubing into new pump.
Electrical connections easy to remove and replace, just remember or take picture of which lead goes where on original pump prior to removal.
