Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

Hi there the water inlet valve is a dual valve has two solenoids on it one for the water dispenser and one for the ice maker, one side can work and the other fail, so you can have water being dispensed and still not water getting to ice maker. You will need to replace the water inlet valve, if you give me the model number of the refrigerator I will be glad to give you the replacement part number, thanks.
