I really don’t like the KitchenAid Refrigerator model KRSF505ESS01. First the wire to the ice dispenser broke rendering it useless. Now water drips from the water dispenser. It’s only a little bit at a time but it’s enough to overflow the drip pan overnight. Based on advice to forum members on similar issues, I replaced both the water inlet valve (part# W10498992) and inlet valve (part# W10341320 but it still drips. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

W10498992 changes over to WPW10238100
W10341320 changes over to WPW10341320

Here's the single(primary) water inlet valve for your model:
WPW10238100 Valve


Here's the dual(secondary) water inlet valve for your model:
Water Inlet Valve WPW10341320


Draw 10 full glasses of water from the water dispenser to get the air out, if that doesn't solve it, disconnect the single(primary) water inlet valve that feeds into the dual(secondary) water inlet valve and get something to catch water in and see if it still drips, if not the your have a defective dual(secondary) water inlet valve. Contact the place where you got it from and ask them to send another new one.

Also, if you haven't changed the water filter in over a year, its a good idea to replace that too.

Here's the water filter for your model:
EDR1RXD1 Water Filter

Thanks Jake - I will try this next weekend, however, my recollection is the line from the primary goes up into the fridge somewhere (to the filter I assume). So when you write "disconnect the single(primary) water inlet valve that feeds into the dual(secondary) water inlet valve", are you referring to that return line? Also, where should I look to see if it still drips? Drips from the line I pulled out or drips from the secondary filter where the line was disconnected?

I'm referring to the single(primary) water inlet valve tubing water line, just disconnect it from the single(primary) water inlet valve itself, underneath the solenoid.

When you click the part link I posted in post #2 to the single(primary) water inlet valve, you will see a video of how you push in that blue snap ring that releases it.

If it drips continually from that single(primary) water inlet valve, then that's the bad part.

Turned out even after I replaced the parts, the dripping did not stop. Once I changed out the filter, it did stop. Thanks again.
