Im assuming you replaced the water actuator,and now cant fit the water hose back into the holder??? try disconnecting the hose under the freezer door hinge, this will allow you to pull extra hose up into the dispenser area, then after remounting the face you can reconnect at the bottom

Whirlpool side by side refrigerator model # ED5VHGXMQ stopped making ice and despensing water. could this be caused by the filter?

Yes, this is a symptom of the water filter in need of replacement, I would recommend starting with filter replacement, if that doesn't solve the problem, then I recommend checking the water supply at the back of the refrigerator. Shut the water valve off that is inline to the refrigerator, disconnect the tubing from the refrigerator at the water valve or the water tube couppler on the back of the refrigerator, have a container available so that you can run about 1 or 2 gallons of water out of the water supply tube in to the container to be able to see if the water pressure seems to be strong and if there is sediment or other foreign matter that needed to be flushed from the system. If water supply seems good then reverse the process to supply water back to the refrigerator. If water supply is not good you need to have a technician or plumber check into the water supply further.

There is a double or triple water valve in your fridge. check continuity on the water dispenser valve coil in the back of the fridge (small terminals, thicker tubing, green coil). Replace valve (part number 4389177) if no continuity. If ok, check if there's line voltage (110-120V) to that coil when the dispenser actuator is pressed. If there is power and there is continuity on that coil - water line is frozen inside the freezer door. Turn off and defrost the refrigerator for full 24 hours. put towels under the freezer door to catch melting ice formed from condensation inside the door. repeat every year or as necessary.

If no power to the water valve coil - check the switch actuated by the water lever in the dispenser assembly. Replace if faulty. Regular microswitch is ok, but if you want the OEM part number, there it is: 2162361

Good luck!

GE Profile side by side refrigerator stopped making ice, what could be the problem?

Either the water valve on the back of the refrigerator is bad or the icemaker is bad. reach into the icemaker and check for water in the mold. if there is water replace the whole ice maker, replacing parts is just as costly and the other parts could fail in a very short amount of time. If there is no water the problem is the water valve on the back of the refrigerator. First check the tube inside the freezer where the water enters the ice maker for any ice blocking the water flow. Look with a good flashlight this is sometimes hard to see. If this tube is blocked your valve is leaking just a drop at a time and and has built up into this ice block. Melt the ice and replace the water valve. The valve could also just not be opening. If there is no water in the mold but the tube is clear of ice assuming the water is turned on to the refrigerator, replace the water valve and this will solve your problem.

Broken water actuator

Hi this is tech crazy
the solution to the problem is

You should be able to replace this part yourself. Follow these steps to replace the water actuator:
  1. Unplug the refrigerator to completely disconnect electrical power. Turn off the water supply to the refrigerator.
  2. Remove the drip tray (Key 23 in the image below) from the bottom of the dispenser.
  3. Remove the screws (Key 43) from the bottom of the dispenser module cover (Key 4). NOTE: You model may not have screws at the bottom of the dispenser cover. If not, push down on the top of the dispenser cover and pry out on the bottom of the cover with a flat tip screw driver to remove it.
  4. Pull to dispenser module cover up to release the top clips and remove this cover and set it aside.
  5. Remove the screws (Key 17) that are on each side of the dispenser module (Key 8).
  6. Carefully pull the dispenser module out slightly from the door. It will have wires attached. Pay attention to how the water tube and the ice door assembly are positioned. Pull this module out far enough to remove and replace your water actuator (Key 24).
Reverse the above process for reassembly.

There is a trick of sorts. If you go to the bottom hinge of the freezer door you will find the same tube. Pull carefully and give yourself as much excess tubing to pull up through the door. Do not pull too hard or too much. This will give you more slack on the top end to work with. Once you get it reinstalled in the hole in the bracket, you probably will need to pull "carefully" back down through hinge to reinstall the dispenser bracket assembly.
I hope this helped you.
Please don't for get to rate me if I have helped.
