Hi. As of now my problem is that the water dispenser is not working, and its just barely the second day i turned the thing on. Yesterday it was working fine, but when I got up this morning to get a drink, nothing came out. Connections are ok. Ice maker works fine, Just the dispenser. Any Ideas?

Check you water bladder with in the refer section behind the shelves is this section. Its possible your unit is too cold and froze the tank. A simple way to prove this is to turn off the unit for a day and leave the door open to thaw. May not be possible unless you have another unit to hold food. Another way would be to seek out the water valve and see if you can dispense water into a cup from the water valve to prove the valve work and the dispenser functions, you may need a second person to do this test. Good Luck
We are sorry to hear of the problem with your Whirlpool appliance. We would recommend having a local certified technician in your area properly diagnose and repair the issue you are experiencing. Please email us at Whirlpool_Digital@Whirlpool.com with your name, phone number, address and the model and serial number for your refrigerator.
First thing I would check is the solenoid valve. It's what the water line in the back is connected to. An easy way to test it is to remove the screws connecting the solenoid so it is loose from the refrigerator. Remove the 2 water lines going into the refrigerator from the solenoid, keeping the water line from your house still plugged into it. Get a bucket and while the open ends are pointed in the bucket have someone press the water dispenser lever on front. If it dispenses water into the bucket from one side it's good, if not, replace it. Please be careful of the wire harness that is connected to the solenoid. Any part of the bare metal on the contacts, when energized, carry120v and can shock you.
Hope that helps.
The only thing between the inlet line and the spout?
Water Inlet solenoid, a valve that lets water in. Follow the inlet line to the back of frige. Unplug and turn off water before service. repace valve. EZ FIX...
You either have a loose wire or you'll need a display board. The only other cheap thing that you can try is to unplug the unit and plug it back in. But if that doesn't work then it's one of two things. Are you sure that you don't have a extended warranty on this unit? Is this a GE unit?
Check this first,
Your dispenser can be turned off for easy cleaning or to prevent
unintentional dispensing by small children and pets.
NOTE: The lock feature does not shut off power to the product, to
the ice maker, or to the dispenser light. It simply deactivates the
ice and water dispensers. To turn off the ice maker, see “Ice
Maker & Storage Bin.”
Press and hold LOCKOUT for 3 seconds to lock the
Press and hold LOCKOUT a second time to unlock the dispenser.
Let me know if this helped, Sea Breeze
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.
