The water hose coil is to chill the drinking water coming out of the dispenser. If the water drips out it could be a bad solenoid valve since the water dispenser requires power to dispenser water. If the Ice maker is working fine then check the dispenser water solenoid valve.

Icecubes freeze together in a big lump in storage ,will not dispence

Good day,
In almost all cases, that problem is due to the dual water valve located at the bottom rear of the machine. It is not repairable and must be replaced.
Assuming the freezer is staying at it's normal temperature, when the ice maker fills, the water valve described above does not shut off completely after a normal fill, causing water to dribble down the fill chute freezing the cubes together.

Very common problem, and changing the valve is not difficult, and most appliance parts houses carry them.

Water dribbling out of dispencer whirlpool american fridgefreezer

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.

Water pressure is extremely low.

Let over line so that one can move the unit w/o disconnecting the water line. Check to se if the preasure going to the unit is low also by disconnecting the line after someone helping you turnas it off and on at the tap valve where it attaches to the house water line. If low there turn off house warter dissemble saddle needle valve and clean .If preasure is good there Replace the water filter on the unit or the one in line. If that doesn't work , then consider replacing the fill valve.

I would like to know something.I have a big plastic corel in the back of the crisper pan and I do not know where it go.I have a plastic tube which go from the water valve inlet to the drinking water line...

The coil of plastic tubing behind the crisper is your chilled water reservoir for the water dispenser. They use a coil instead of a tank because it chills the water more quickly and ensures good turnover of the water with less chance of stagnation.

Water line

That coil is the line to the water dispenser, and its purpose is to chill the water before dispensing it. The coil of tubing is better than a tank because it chills quickly, takes less space and doesn't hold stagnant water. It shouldn't have any effect on the icemaker.

Refrigerator doesnt dispen water

Hey it could be freezing in the tank. I just learned that the tank is in the refrigerator behind the crisper drawers under a plastic sleeve (attached w/two screws) . It can get too cold in the tank since there is a vent from the freezer pointing right on the tank that cools it. I defrosted mine by taking a heating pad and wrapping it around the tank for a few hours. I had to leave the crisper out, but oh well. I wish the slow water was my only problem!
