Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! The water line first comes into the filter from your home's water supply. It goes through the filter and then out to the water valve. The small line out of the valve goes to the ice maker and the larger line goes to the water tank in the fresh food section and then out to the door dispenser.
The video at the link below will also be of help.
If you post a picture of the valve, I can mark it for you.
Those lines are into the filter from the home's water supply and out of the filter to the valve for distribution to the ice maker or the door dispenser. . If you post a picture, I can mark them all for you.
Great pictures, thank you! The two gray lines that are above and to the left of the valve go to the filter. You could simply connect the water to the valve and bypass the filter, sure. The two lines that are behind and above the valve go to and from the water tank in the fresh food section, behind the cripsers. One line goes to the valve and the other goes up front to the door. There is only one 1/4" water line from the valve to the ice maker, then the ice maker will work. If you choose not to replace the water tank inside the fresh food section, disconnect the wires at the solenoid with the 5/16" line. So, to sum it up, if you connect water supply directly to valve and repair 1/4" line from the valve to the ice maker, you will get ice, no filtration and no door dispenser. Does that help?
