SOURCE: water stopped running in the dispenser

Modern refrigerators utilize a dual solenoid one for the ice maker and one for the water dispenser so it is possible for one to fail while the other still operate the way to check this is to disconnect the water dispenser supply line (on the refrigerator side of the solenoid valve)and verify that water is released when the water dispenser button is depressed. If not then check to assure that the solenoid is receiving 110v power when the switch is depressed if so you have found the problem if not you will need to check for continuity at the micro switch in the door panel. If the solenoid operates properly and yet when you reconnect the water line you still receive no water at the dispenser its possible that the reservoir that cools the line before dispensing the water has frozen. Food freezing in the crisper section would indicate that this is likely, its also possible for the line to freeze in the door if the insulation around the line has shifted and left a portion exposed. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Water not dispensing/flow is not fast

Sound like time for a new filter. When was the last time it was changed? If less than a year or two, it's not the problem. If more, it's likely the filter is clogged reducing the pressure flow of water.

SOURCE: water stopped running in the dispenser

I had a simular problem! I tried multiple things to make it work!

- bought new filter
- open back of the fridge... (dual outlet water valve)

Finally, I went to a different forum and found a unique idea.

First at the very bottom of the fridge theres a cover remove the cover and you should see the water hose running to the door from the back. In the middle of the hose there a coupler where the hose was spliced by the manufactuer. Now this valve once you separate it will not work correctly, unless you buy a new coupler (4$)... I'm el cheapo, I bought teflon tape for 50 cents (from previous project)... Wrapped around about half dozen times and made sure it wasnt leaking...

Secondly, when you disconnect the coupler no water should shoot out, until you press the water dispenser arm. If water shoots out of the hose on the bottom then you problem is really, really, really easy. You have simplely ice/ or another item blocking water hose to the actual dispenser.

I turned off the frezzer left the door open for an hour or so. I also used my wife's blow dryer on hot, and put it where the ice comes out of the ice maker. I would press the arm peridocially to see if the ice blockage melted yet. REMEMBER: door must be closed for pressure to push on the ice blockage. Thinking back, I might have been finished sooner... I was thinking the water dispenser would work with the door open.

If this doesnt work, then you have other problems... Bad water dispenser selonoid (you can hear this little motor turning even without water), dual water outlet valve maybe broken... Going outside my knowldege level at this point.... But i guess you computer board maybe going bad. Not sure if this computer has anything to do with water dispensing....

Hope this helps! My wife left me alone for about a day or two while she enjoyed the water dispenser...And she broke the vaccum.

SOURCE: After 3 years we have ice but no water from the dispenser

Remove the bottom kickplate and the hose at the bottom of the door goes underneath the refrig about 3 inches , to a hose connector . Push in on the end of the connector and pull out the hose . Close the freezer door and press water . If water comes sprays out from hose under frig , then your door is frozen internally .If no water sprays out of hose , then your watervalve is bad . One coil is for ice and the other is for water but they come togather as one.

CWTF15 WILL NOT STOP WATER FLOW WHEN POT IS MADE.


The coffee dispensing valve is stuck open. It may be due to Calcium deposits.
Descale the machine or manually clean the dispensing valve and the diffuser disc that unscrews to be removed. This diffuser is visible just above the coffee pot.

The water from the dispenser is running and i can't stop it how do you turn of???


The cause of the problem you describe could be ether water inlet valve or the water lever dispenser switch.Locate the water valve at the back of the refrigerator, open the water and take off both plugs from the valve. If the water flow want stop replace the water valve. If it will, replace the water lever switch.

Water dispenser on Kitchenaid side by side fridge running continuously


There is a filter but it sounds like the water valve in the back was stuck in the open position at first and now won't open at all or the micro switch is actuated when you press the water release is bad, but if I were to bet I would go with the water valve being bad, but change the filter anyway, there is no telling how old the one that is in there is.

Continuous flow from water dispenser


With GE it could be a bad water valve, bad microswitch that actuates the water or could be a bad main control board. You can diagnose the valve by simply pulling the wire harness off and turning the water on. If the water starts to flow with the power removed from the valve then the valve is stuck and needs replacing. If the water stopped with the power removed, check the valve's wire harness with a volt meter and see if 115vac is being applied. If so then the switch or the board are bad. You can check the switch by setting your meter to continuity and checking the com part of the switch to either the no or nc part. One should test good for continuity, the other not and with the switches buttong depressed the exact opposite. If the switch test good then the board is bad.

Old filter in and water started to sputter, made clunky noises and flow very slow. Removed filter and used plug - water ran fine not filtered.- Replaced with new Maytag filter and water sputtered, flow...


Hello there, when new filters are fitted usually they are expected to spurt for a little bit before they normalize and begin to flow properly. Dispense water continuously for 10 minutes. This usually arises when the flow of water through the unit not being allowed through properly and usually takes the new filter a couple of minutes to get accustomed to the water flow and get water circulating through all its components hence the spurts. Alternatively you can check to ensure that the water supply is turned on full and the filter is properly fitted. If all of these are in place then the dispense mechanism might be faulty.
Hope this support has been helpful?

Water dispenser dripping water all the time


Hi,



First be sure the refrigerator is connected to a cold water supply. After connecting the refrigerator to a water source or replacing the water filter, flush the water system. Use a sturdy container to depress and hold the water dispenser lever for 5 seconds, and then release it for 5 seconds. Repeat until water begins to flow. Once water begins to flow, continue depressing and releasing the dispenser lever (5 seconds on, 5 seconds off) until a total of 12 L has been dispensed. This will flush air from the filter and water dispensing system, and prepare the water filter for use. Additional flushing may be required in some households. As air is cleared from the system, water may spurt out of the dispenser.

One or two drops of water immediately after dispensing is normal. It may be necessary to hold the container under the dispenser for 2 to 3 seconds after releasing the dispenser lever.


Hope this will be useful.

Thank you

I have the opposite problem


You may have air in the system. When you actuate the dispenser it opens an electric valve in back to start the flow of water. When you release the dispenser air in the system expanding will cause the water to continue to flow until the pressure equalizes.
