Exclamation kenmore refrigerator water dispenser leaking
Model Number: 10653206201   Brand: Kenmore   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I have a Kenmore Elite side-by-side refrigerator with icemaker and water dispenser. Recently the water dispenser started leaking slowly and has gotten worse. I believe the water inlet valve has gone bad and needs replacing, am I right? The valve appears to have two solenoids, one for the water dispenser and one for the ice maker. Please let me know if replacing the inlet valve will solve the problem!
Thanks!

so you agree that replacing the inlet valve will stop the dispenser from leaking? Does the solenoid going bad cause the leak?
