My whirlpool fridge stopped making ice and dispensing water so after a lot of research and diagnosing (not that I really know what I'm doing!) I replaced the water valve, put it all back together, etc. However, once I plugged it into power I got asked to do something else. When I came back to the fridge project a couple hours later, I double checked the Part Select video I was watching to guide me, and I realized I had the plugs reversed. I had them on the correct sides, but I had them upside down. So here is a screenshot from the video showing how it should be:
But I had the B where A should be and vice verse, and the D where the C should be and vice verse.
So I immediately unplugged the fridge, flipped the plugs to the correct way, and then put it all back together and plugged it in again. But the water and ice are not working. So I am wondering -- did I ruin the water valve by plugging it in wrong and running it that way for about 3 hours?!
