I replaced my ice maker/water dispenser water valve yesterday here:

and today the two fittings that connect to the outside of the water filter housing are leaking.

What would cause this?

I pulled the filter housing out and it looks like the pressure fittings on it are shot. I tried removing the lines and cleaning everything, but it leaks pretty badly once it's all put back together.

I guess the water pressure increased after putting on the new water valve in the back or something? Possibly the water flow was better because the new valve doesn't have any build up?

Anyway, is this the correct part number: AP3085317(2186443)?

Just in case anybody even saw this thread, I ended up replacing the water filter housing. The rubber seals on it had just given up I guess. The new part does not leak.
