Water leaking from ice/water dispenser

For about a month now I have had water leaking from my KitchenAid Refrigerator.  It slowly drips out of either the ice shoot or the water hole and fills the pan.  Then the water begins to overflow if not emptied daily.  I think the problem is on the freezer/ice shoot side because I have ice building up at the top (inside the freezer) ice slide.  I have taken the ice machine out and there is still ice buildup on this area.  All the stuff in the freezer is still rock hard and it seems to be holding temperature fine.
I have a KitchenAid RefrigeratorModel #:  KSSS42DWX01
Thanks in advance!

    I doubt thats it. I opened the freezer and took off the plastic shoot that the ice slides down because ice was forming on the top of it.  Since I took it off, no ice forms inside the freezer around the shoot, so thats good.  It is still dripping out slowly.

Hi there,

you may have a kink in the water line leading to the icemaker. the leak is due to warm water entering the icemaker itself. i would also check the water valve in the icemaker itself and ice actuators or paddles to any breakage.

    okay, that it must be the water valve itself that's leaking.



    i would have a technician replace it.

How to fix water leak on GE Profile Refrigerator


Hi,

I would look at the dispenser door for the ice (ice chute) I have seen this door not completely close and cause leaking the you are describing. This door is has a black seal, use a flashlight, from the inside of the freezer door, look for light on the outside of the door. I think you leak is there and replace the solenoid for the door to fix this issue. Good Luck, if you want more help please input a model number. Thanks

The freezer door leaks water from the water/ice dispenser. The dispenser fills up with water. Items in the freezer door almost seem as if they never freeze. All items in the door are much less frozen...


Leaky dispenser-------
Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out of it and see if you have a slow drip. Try the dispenser to see if it's just drips after use.

Hi, The freezer should be "0", the possible clogging you have could be a leaking water valve or an over filling ice maker. I would have the ice maker checked for volume of water dispenser during harvest, should be 5.5 oz. (2/3 cup), if more the 6 oz. the ice maker is bad. If fails to stop filling or leaks/drips, replace the water valve behind the unit.
I hope this helps.

Water dispenser leaks on model number KSRS25FGSS13. I HAVE FLUSH THE AIR OUT AND IT STILL HAS A VERY SMALL DRIP


Probably replace the water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in. Disconnect the water line to the dispenser there and see if it keeps dripping when you try the dispenser.

Water intermittently leaks from dispenser for past few months.


Try unplugging the water control valve on the rear of refrigerator on the side that turns on the dispenser. If while unplugged you continue to get dripping water it would point to the dual water control valve being defective. Tell me what you find, Sea Breeze

The ice and water dispenser on my Amana Refrigerator slowly leaks water. Are there repair parts to correct this? And how is the plastic frame containing the dispenser removed from the door?


The problem is most likely not in the door. When the dispense button is pressed it actuates an electric solenoid valve in the rear of the refrigerator that opens and allows the water to flow. Over time the valve seals get worn and the water seeps by. This is what usually causes a drip at the water dispenser. If there is a drip at the ice side then the door is jammed and is not closing fully. This allows the ice at the opening to melt and drip. Hope this helps. Please accept and rate. Good luck.

The excess frost on the ice maker and bucket can be caused by the ice chute door not closing all the way or a leaky door gasket letting air in.

Water dripping after filter change


Hello... remove the filter again and look carefully at everything. Use some vaseline to act as a lubricant on the o ring, or the fittings and carefully reassemble. the vaseline should stop the drip.

Hotpoint Superba side by side 2169955 water dripping out of dispenser


hi there,

sounds like you may have something broken on the icemaker case itself.

if the water is leaking down the front, it could be the front casing.

if the water is leaking inside the door, it's something a bit bigger.

i would recommend a technician to come and take a look.

Drain pan leaking?


there is a drip pan located underneath you ref but most likely your prob is a plugged drain line coming from the freezer. when you ref goes into automatic def the water doesnt run out into the drip pan but instead onto your floor..

you can clean the drain line by removing the rear cover in the freezer compartment and using hot water to thaw the drain below the evap coil.
