Whirlpool refrigerator water dispenser not working

I have a Whirlpool side by side model ED22TQXGN00 with a thru the door water/ice dispenser. The ice maker is working fine but when I depress the adjacent water lever, I hear a humming noise but no water comes out. Can you tell me what part needs to be replaced? I have replaced the water inlet valve in the past when the ice maker wasn't getting water, so I hope that is not the problem. Could it be the bracket control (Whirlpool part number AP2988571)? I appreciate an email response to me at Michael.D.Hauser@BGE.com One last thing, can you explain how I can remove the front panel to get access? I'm told that it's easy to break and expensive to replace. Due to a leak, we had the water disconnected and were not using the ice maker/water dispenser. They were working perfectly before the leak. After two months, I repaired the leak in the water feed line. The ice maker seems to work fine, but the water dispenser doesn't. You have to apply an inordinate amount of pressure to the lever; the water stream starts out fairly strong, but rapidly tapers off. The water comes out at room temperature.

If you are still curious as to how to remove the face plate... There are 2 small slots on the bottom of the faceplate. Pry out on those and the plate slides up and off from there.

In door water dispenser of ED25QF will not dispense water. New filter, cannot detect kink in supply line, pump does not sound, still making ice, light in door works, dispenses/crushes ice. What is the...


The pump motor on the dispensing water is the problem. Pump motor problem is cause by no voltage power to motor, burnt motor winding, switch faucet on dispensing water, water supply line has jam, check it if you can if not, call a refrigerator service technician to do the job.
I hope I help you with your problem. Thanks!

My Whirlpool Gold side-by-side refrigerator GS6NVEXSL00 wont give me the ice out the door. It makes ice, but when I press the button on the door nothing happens. Seems like the button went out. HELP!


Does the water dispenser work? Is there a light at the dispenser panel, does it light? Do you hear any noises or motors running when you actuate ice dispenser? You could have a power issue for the dispenser. Some newer whirlpool models have an issue with the wiring leading into the door at bottom being so securley fastened to frame, the lack of movement forces the wires to bend, and in time break, with door usage. If water dispenser works, and you hear no sounds when the ice lever is actuated, then you have a problem with the dispenser panel circuit board. if water works and you hear some sounds when ice lever is actuated, such as a loud popping noise, then you have a bad ice dispenser auger motor, not churning the ice out of the bucket.

My ice maker has stopped working, the water continues to dispense thru the door yet the ice has stopped


Most likely the water control valve on the rear of the refrigerator is defective for the ice maker side of the valve. Try filling the ice maker with tap water and let freeze. If the ice drops and cycles and does not refill then the water valve is the problem. If the ice maker does nothing when you try this the ice maker is the reason. Send me your model number and I can tell you the parts that need replaced. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Freezer does not make ice


You need to check and see if ice maker has any water init. if not check the fill tube that goes thru the back wall for stoppage while you have it out rin the maker thru a harvest mode and listen for the sounds of the solonoid opening. If tube is full you'll need to replace the slow leaking valve a common problem. for parts call 704-819-6557

No water on dispenser Model#ED5CHQXKQ01


most likely you have a frozen water line to the dispenser. it could be inside the back of the refr section that is just too cold or inside the freezer door.
either one can be tested by allowing each to warm up for 15 to 20 minutes and see if you get water thru door.
do you hear a buzz from the water valve coil when you push the dispenser lever? if so then the water line is probably frozen somewhere.

Whirlpool refrigerator water dispenser not working


My older whirlpool side by side refrigerator has stopped dispensing water. The icemaker works fine, and I have adjusted the temperature a week ago so I don't believe the line is frozen. I do not hear any noise when the dispenser is pushed down, and feel that is where the problem is. The line is clear on the bottom of the fridge behind the kick plate, but water does not come out freely when I disconnect the couplings...
Any advice?
