Ice Maker & Washer Valve Boxes

Repair or Replace Ice Maker & Washer Valve Boxes in Frisco, TX

Sometimes, the smallest issues can create the largest hassles. Maybe you purchased a new refrigerator or washing machine OR worse, today is “moving day” and the movers are packing the truck. When you unhook the supply hose(s) you find that the water will not stop leaking from the valve. Because ice maker valves and washer valve boxes are important but rarely used, a drip or leak forming when it is finally used is a common occurrence. Finding a plumber who knows how to properly replace these without destroying your home can be a gamble and a hassle.

Thankfully, Earl’s Plumbing is on your side. We have extensive experience with water shutoff valves of all types, including the trickiest ones fused into ice maker outlet boxes and laundry boxes. Our team makes your leak a priority. We have the parts and materials on every truck to make almost any replacement on the same stop. And most importantly, in the vast majority of these jobs we do so seamlessly without you having to get an expensive drywall and painting contractor to make additional trips. Give us a call today to return your home to normal and/or to be able to move with a peace of mind that it is done correctly and in one stop!

What Are Ice Maker and Washer Valve Boxes?

Washer valve boxes, also sometimes called laundry boxes, are recessed units that house the water supply connections and drains for washing machines. They are usually installed in the wall behind your appliance, acting as a centralized location for its plumbing connections.

Ice maker outlet boxes work similarly, housing water supply valves for a refrigerator’s ice maker or water dispenser. In both situations, the valves are usually fused with the box itself, making repairs tricky for DIYers and handymen. A portion of the wall will typically need to be cut away to access and replace these valves. At Earl’s Plumbing, we will install an access panel when we complete the job, saving you money on any future repair needs!

Because the washer box and ice maker valves are not easily accessible and therefore rarely used (turned on or off) they can easily develop scale, corrosion and other defects over time. This can lead to leaks or drips . These shutoff valves typically have a limited lifespan of about 8-12 years before they become only partially functioning so proactive planning may be a consideration.

Answers to Your Frequently Asked Questions

We know most home and business owners don’t think much about these valve boxes—but that’s what we’re here for! If you don’t see your question below, please contact us directly.

The valves are fused to the plastic box, so you’ll need a licensed plumber to come and remove the whole assembly.

Our team will open a hole beneath the washer valve box, make the necessary replacements, and then put in an access panel instead of simply patching the drywall. This ensures that when you have to remove and replace these valves again, you’ll have easy access—saving you time and money!

Because the washer valves are fused to the box, this repair can be fairly involved. The process includes turning off the water, cutting pipes, and doing new junction work on two water lines and a drain. This process can be complicated if your house is older and/or doesn’t have a standard box setup. But we’ll always walk you through what we’ll need to do before work begins!

“I am very happy with the service I receive from Earl’s Plumbing, this is the second time I called them out for my plumbing issues. Both times they have been able to schedule me right away. They have a good communication system so I know when they will be here. Their techs are always professional and very polite. I will be sure to call them again.”

Mary Nichols

“I called the company after 4:30 pm on Friday,7-22. I explained to Cooper that I had been without water for 5 days because of a leak in the wall which required the water to be shut off. Three different plumbers had previously come to my house to address the repair but no such luck. Cooper was very understanding and stated that he would send someone today. In less than 30 minutes, Jason & Aaron arrived at my home. They showed me the problem, repaired the leak, made sure the water was on, cleaned up and were on their way. Besides being knowledgeable and professional, this company is also honest and fair in pricing. I am extremely pleased with the outstanding service I received and will not hesitate to call Earl’s Plumbing for all future plumbing issues.”

Jerri S.

“The guys were very honest and looked out for my best interest. I had a leak in my pipe to my outside hose faucet. Another company quoted me over $5000 to fix the leak through some complicated unnecessary process digging under my foundation. Earl’s crew found a solution for me to cap the line which was not even offered by the other company. Needless to say it cost $315. This is the 4th time I have used Earl’s plumbing and they never disappoint. The only reason I called the other company was because Earl’s was closed and I was desperate. So glad I waited for the only plumbing service I will ever use. Thanks for making a stressful situation easier I highly recommend Earl’s plumbing.”
