SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: water on the ice maker doesn't shut off - drips into the ice pan

Most models of Ice makers have an automatic timer for the amount of water that is allowed to enter the Ice Maker tray. If your timer valve is going bad you need to replace it. First I would reduce the amount of water coming from its source. There should be a tapped valve under your sink, connected to your water line. You have to turn the top of the valve clock wise to reduce the amount of water the is going to the back of your refrigerator. That is where you will find the timer valve. Reducing your water flow should help reduce the volume of water being let into your Ice Maker.

This is a common issue with water dispensers in the door. This can be caused by a couple of things, the most common being, air in the line. Proper bleeding of the system will eliminate the issue. Leaking water valves' can cause the same issue, and is the second most common issue.

When water leaks from the dispenser like this it will be caused by a defective water control valve that will not shut properly when off. The leaking water is the same as a leaking faucet. The KSCS25IN uses a=> W10247725-Water Control Valve or HERE

Slow water flow from the water dispenser


If it was fast at one point there are a couple of things that come to mind. Make sure your water line is not kinked at any point behind the frig. Also, when was the last time you changed your filter? Dirty water filters can cause low water pressure. Let me know if I can help further, good luck! :D

Water takes a couple of seconds to come out and not making ice


Check the water supply lines feeding the refrigerator for crimps or hard turns and even if someone put a self taping tap valve as a shut off. They tend to restrict flow. If you find a tap valve remove it and have Tee placed there with a shutoff. It also does not hurt to pre-filter water going to the refrigerator. Lowes or Home Depot have some good in line filters that you just plug feed in one end and supply to fridge on other end. If it had air in the water you would have dripping all the time and noise of air rushing out once the dispenser valve is pressed. I am checking if your model has a filter somewhere. Have someone turn water off and disconnect the water feed from refrigerator and place lin in a pan or container and then have the turn it back on so you can visually see the flow. Disconnect power so if things get out of control water does not cover the electrical parts of the refrigerator. Let me know, Thanks Sea Breeze

My brand new side by side with exterior ice/water dispenser barely dispenses water. It comes out in a tiny stream that after a few seconds only drips out. Why?


you might want to check the shut off valve on the house end. follow where the wate line goes and see if it is a self percing valve. if it is shut it off all the way to re-tap the cold water line on the house end. if there is a filter on the line with also cause this problem. Is the waterline new? if so it might not be tapped all the way.

Kitchenaid model ksrs25ilss02 water filter


Are you saying water is dripping out the ice dispenser or the water dispenser, a water filter would have nothing to do with this, it only filters water, it does not pump water nor does it shut it off. If water
is dripping from the ice dispenser, it is because the rubber gasket
is bad on the flap that seals after ice is dispensed. If water is dripping
from the water dispenser, it is the shut off for the water, you can put a glass under it and push for water a few times,on and off and see if this makes it stop, if not you would need to have this replaced. Any questions please post back.

Water in washing machine from emptying sink.


A washing machine filling with water overnight or when not in use has two possible causes. Either the water is running into the washing machine from the sink ( If the drain hose is connected directly to the u-bend under the sink ) or one of the water valves isn't shutting off properly and water is dripping slowly but surely into the washing machine. The latter problem can take several hours before the water level rises high enough inside the washing machine to be visible.
It's easy to track down the cause of water entering the washing machine when not in use. If turning off the hot and cold water taps stops it, then it's one of the water valves not shutting off properly, and needs replacing. It's just a process of elimination to find out which one it is. If not, the water is likely to be coming from the sink (use above link). Sometimes by removing the soap dispenser drawer and carefully observing inside the soap dispenser you can clearly see water dripping in at regular intervals.
Blocked water valve filters: I've come across cases where a filter in the water valve has become caked in a brown sludgy mud-like substance due to disturbances in the plumbing. This could be because of work carried out on internal plumbing or even after workmen have turned the water off in the street to work on the water mains. After the water is turned back on, muddy or gritty water can enter the household pipework and when you use the washing machine it can draw this contaminated water into it.
In this scenario very fine grit or muck can get past the filter and stop it shutting off properly, or the filter is so blocked that water pressure to the valve is reduced enough to prevent the valve shutting off properly. Remove the water valve filter with some pliers and thoroughly clean it out. If the fault persists, replace the valve.
Important things to watch out for are -
  1. Washing machine water valves need a certain amount of water pressure to actually ensure the water is shut off properly. Therefore, if your water pressure is very low, it can seep in past the closed valve. This problem is less likely to suddenly appear unless your water pressure has suddenly dropped. It's more likely to be a problem with a new installation. ( Related: Low water pressure and washing machines )
  2. A faulty tap can mean that although you turn it off, the water supply isn't actually cut, so be careful of assuming if the fault still occurs, that you have definitely discounted the water valves. If unsure, you would have to disconnect the hot and cold fill hoses to ensure the water supply is properly cut when the taps are turned off. This problem is a lot more common with water taps that turn off with a red or blue plastic lever.
  3. If the washing machine has just been filling, you may get some dripping of water into the soap dispenser for a few minutes after. Don't mistake this for a valve not shutting off properly.
  4. If the water ever gets turned off while work is carried out on the water mains in the street or for major plumbing in your home, run lots of water in the house through taps at the sinks until it runs clear after the water is turned back on.
Faulty water valves should be replaced or there is risk of flooding.

Water dispencer


Hi. This is normal and there is nothing wrong with your refrigerator. Whenever you replace the water filter on any refrigerator, you must run a couple gallons of water thru the water dispenser until all the air from the new water filter is out. Use a large container to do this. The water will not stop when you pull a cup away because the water valves used on refrigerators are so weak it will not close until it has pressure on both sides of it. If you don't get the air out, the air from your new water filter can go to the ice maker and stop ice production. So flush the air out of your new water filter. The water you are drinking from your drink dispenser may not be healthy. It may contain a small plastic floating substance. This is part of the plastic that the water tank is made of. The chemicals in the water do this. You will have this problem even with a new water filter because the water tank is after the water filter. You have to replace the Water Tank. The water tank is located in the refrigerator section on the bottom back wall. I sell low cost new designed Water Tanks on Ebay as username: themackshack. Good Luck, Mack

Whirlpool side-by-side refrigerator - 2 problems


I would suggest that you get a certified person to come out and look at it you very well could have bent the doors in the move.

but... if you want to do it yourself.
click here for a walkthrough

for your drip:
Flush air from the water system the first time it is used and after replacing the filter. Air trapped in the water line or filter may slowly travel through the coiled water reservoir to the dispenser, pushing any water ahead of it. This can cause the dispenser to drip. Water needs to completely fill the lines for all air to be cleared.
  • Use a sturdy container to press and hold the water dispenser bar for 5 seconds, then release it for 5 seconds. Repeat until the water begins to flow. Once the water begins to flow, continue pressing and releasing the dispenser bar (5 seconds on, 5 seconds off) for an additional 2 minutes. Repeat if dripping starts again because air can re-enter from the water supply.
  • As air is cleared from the system, water may spurt from the water dispenser.
  • Make sure the refrigerator is connected to a cold water supply.
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.

Water dispenser dripping


Your house valve may not be totally closed (bad seal or something) letting a small bit of water through. Disconnect the line to the fridge completely (in the back) to be sure. That way even if the fridge solenoid valve is bad AND the house valve is bad you won't get dripping. If you know the valve is good, there are times when the water filter will have air trapped in it letting the water in the line drip out slowly until it's finally empty. Pull any filters you have also.
