Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators
Model # ED2CHQXVB01, water dispenser would not stop running.
You will need to replace the switch. Here is the part to order.
To replace the switch:
Here are the basic instructions: " 1. Unplug the refrigerator power cord. 2. Remove the overflow grille from the housing. 3. Unsnap front cover at the bottom of the housing. (You'll need to insert the tip of a flat blade tool into the slots molded into the bottom edge of the facade and twist or pry out,you may want to use some type of pad to eliminate damage to the door panel). 4. Disconnect the front cover switch harness connector and set the cover aside. 5. Disconnect the power wire harness connector (BL/BK and W wires) 6. Disconnect the flapper door heater wire harness connector (if one is present). 7. Release the dispenser microswitch retainers and slide the switches off of their locator pins. Carefully handle the switches so they do not come apart."

If there is a reset button on your ice maker try pushing it. Many ice makers have two holes for reset. A general rule of thumb is if the ice maker fingers are stopped in a slightly vertical position then your ice maker unit is working. If the fingers are stopped anywhere else then it needs some sort of attention or replaced. Make sure there is water, or ice in the ice maker tray, if not then the problem is with water supply.

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.

Below is a picture of the fountain parts. I believe the controls inside the fountain are defective and will need replaced. Temporarily disconnect the control valve to the Fountain control plug this will allow the ice maker to continue to work. Let me know if you need more help and assistance to solve this problem. Below is a link to my site, email and a photo of the parts. Thank You, Sea Breeze email@example.com

THe problem may be in the water valve for the water despenser,
you could try disconnecting the 2 wires on top of the water despenser side of the valve and see if that will stop it. IF not the valve may need replaceing, may be leaking thu water vavle when closed
