Slow leak from the water dispenser

There is a slow leak from the water dispenser and I was wondering if this is something I could fix or if I have to call an appliance guy out. My plumber capped off the water line because even thought the leak is slow, the tray underneath doesn't seem to have a water collector.

A slow drip in water dispenser


This sounds like a sticking solenoid valve. When you depress the lever for you water dispenser it activates a valve, usually at the bottom back of the fridge. It might look something like this:

25380372-1h1xuof4er41rm4qkikzo3jl-4-0.jpg Sometimes they just burn out and stop working or the seal inside fails sometimes from particulates in the water. Some people put a pre-filter on the water hose that attaches to the fridge just in case. If you have a water filter inside your fridge this does not protect the solenoid. They are next to impossible to repair so a replacement is needed. Just go to Amazon or eReplacement parts and search for your fridge model number with the search terms "water dispenser solenoid". If you are mechanically inclined you can replace yourself or get an appliance tech to do it. It's a 15 minute job.

My whirlpool ed20db ice maker isn't making ice. Inlet tube is frozen solid


Thanks for the model number. The water control valve=> W10245167 Water Inlet Valve will need replaced when this happens. Problem allows water to leak slowly into the ice maker and fill tube can become solid very quickly, or very messy ice formations coming down from ice maker, Thanks John Tripp Appliance 911

Water leaks from dispenser


Most refrigerators that leak out of the water dispenser are caused by a faulty electronic water valve not closing all the way. This is if you have a slow drip that happens. Click Here for a link to a refrigerator post leaking from dispenser. Good Luck From David from Appliance Repair

Water dispenser leak all the time how can i fix it?


Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out of it and see if you have a slow drip. Try the dispenser to see if it's just drips after use.

Amana side by side model SRD21VL. The water dispenser is leaking after it is used. how do I solve this?


Good day,
If the water dispenses properly, then when de-energized continues to dribble, or something like that,
it would be the water valve in the rear bottom of the machine. When you press and ask for water, you are actually depressing a microswitch, which in turn powers the valve. The valve is leaking when unpowered.
You will need to install a new valve assembly, available at any appliance parts house.

Thank you for using FixYa

WATER DISPENSER PROBLEM IN THE REFRIGERATOR


Hello. The only way to fix this problem is to buy a replacement line for your refrigerator at an appliance store. Be sure to have the model number handy. In fact, call first in case they have to order it for you.
