If you own a Maytag or Amana refrigerator with an ice and water dispenser in the door, keep reading. Amana and Maytag have used a Y-connector in their refrigerator water supply tubing. This connector brought two water lines into one, and is located right after the fill valve. The Y-connector can be in the icemaker or chilled water lines, or both. This connector has had problems with leaking and, even worse, breaking and is now no longer available.
To eliminate this potential flood hazard from your fridge, come git you this Maytag valve kit or this Amana valve kit. Problem solved!
Excellent advice and on the money. My Y connector broke exactly as you depicted.
Is there another Y connector that’s on the market as an alternative to discarding the existing dual inlet valve and spending another $40?
Also, if purchasing the new part you recommend, what other tubing, connectors, etc. are required to restore the ice maker water flow?
