Customer Question

LG fridge freezer GWL227HSYA
The water line is not feeding to the ice maker or water dispenser but the motor sound different to when it was working more muffled dosent have the buzz noise to it. Its not an airlock in the piping I have had that and know how to fix that i was hoping you can confirm its the inlet valve motor
or something like that

Hi my name is ***** ***** as you are aware the inlet valve and pump are interconnected at the back. First thing to do is take off the back panel and gently pull the valve/pump assembly backwards. once you have done this with help get someone to press the water supply and see if you have got any suck on the pump inlet side. If not you have a faulty pump, if the pump appears to be sucking then its either the valve or an air leak in the pipes.

Hi Ian
I replaced the pump but no joy so I bought the motor that it was attached to there are two tubes one is going to the pump the other comes from the front on the fridge. my question is they are both same colour but I couldnt see which one was on what connector ( make sense)
