Question about GE Profile PSW26P Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator

After changing to new filter, the fridge started making a slapping noise when you attempted to use water(pipe slapping sound), I put the old filter back in and it worked, I had another new filter used it, and the same problem as the 1st new filter. Now the old filter is doing the same thing.

Sounds like there is air in the line. Have you tried running the water for a few minuets?

SOURCE: Door dispenser stopped dispensing, starting making a constant clicking and now the entire fride isn't working

We had the same problem. Our frigerator is 1.5 year old. Everytime we try to dispence water or ice the dispencer clicks and the whole thing turns of. We had a GE repairman come by: the electronic board needs to be replaced: total cost $350. (cost of the board only: $150. We are considering disconnecting the dispencer by unplugging the board (according to the repain man the ice maker wil still work)or buy a new refrigurator (for sure NO GE!!!!!!)

SOURCE: GE Profile side by side fridge - water dispenser doesn't work

More than likely, your water line is freezing up in the door. You can remove all of the ice cubes and lower the freezer temp to about 3. Leave the freezer door open for about 5 minutes or so and if this does not work, leave the door open a little longer. Also, disconnect the water line at the base of the freezer door, near the floor, and press the dispenser lever. If you have water there, you most likely have a frozen line in the door. Changing the water filter often will help but it is not the answer and is can get quite expensive. By the way, Make sure to hold the dispenser lever forward for at least a couple of minutes each time you test for water flow. If you do not get water at the connector at the base of the door after you have disconnected the line, you have a problem with the valve in the back of the refrigerator.

Sounds like water hammer, has the water supply got it's own shut-off valve behind the fridge or in the basement ? Try shutting the valve then open it just a little. Perhaps the water supply was opened fully after installing the new filter.

I have a Whirlpool fridge that needs a new water filter. Twice now, when I remove the filter to change it, water gushes out even though the ice maker is OFF. I quickly turn off the water line and mop


The Whirlpool fridge requires a water supply connection to a cold water line. Before you connect the water supply to the water line on the fridge, make certain the unit is unplugged from the wall. Press the button and drop down the cover. Then twist to release the old filter and twist the new one into the filter head.

Fridge noise cutting out


To be honest it sounds to me like your fridge may be ok?

To extract the heat from within the fridge interior a compressor (motorised pump) moves gas around a series of pipes around the cabinets insides. This movement of gas causes heat to be picked up and taken away externally to the outside world. When the fridge temperature reaches a predetermined level (around 5C) the compressor shuts down and all is quite. The sound of running water you hear is the coolant gas changing state from gas to liquid and running through the coolant pipes. If the fridge is doing it's job and keeping the content cool then I wouldn't worry. One of the reasons you are probably noticing this sound is because it is a table top fridge. Built in fridges make the same noises but you don't really hear them so much because of the cupboards screening the sound.

I have a Maytag Model #PSD262LHEB refrigerator and the water comes out well and then it makes a purr noise and starts coming out very slow and thin. I've changed the filter as per the Manual and nothing. ...


1) Can you turn up the water pressure with a valve that might control the water connected to the fridge?
2) If there is a plastic water supply tube in back of the fridge you may want to disconnect it and see if there is ample water going through or try replacing it to see if it may be the problem.

Changed filter and now water flow is limited


If the water shutoff valve has a seal like a faucet instead of a saddle valve it's possible a piece of it has broken off and is partially blocking the water line to the fridge. Check the line to see if you can see it or disconnect the line at the inlet to see if the filter screen is plugged.

Water does not flow


Sounds like air in the line.....the filter may be cracked/damaged, or not quite seated...?

since you've tried 2 new ones....I'm gonna bet they are not quite the correct ones for your fridge.

Do you have an automatic ice maker/dispenser? If yes check and/or replace same, and also checkfor broken pipes. you may have to slide out fridge to do so....be careful as piping or wiring my also be tangled. look for leaks.Repair as may be necessary. You might also take offthe filter,be sure water is shut off, inject food coloring into the water line,reconnect everything and partially open water and look for colored water which should lead to the leak.
No icemaker? orven as last resort with icemaker, check for hidden built up frost, sometimes a tricky deal and/or turn off fridge completely and let it come to room temp (defrost the whole thing) and see what happens. A collection of new water will inticate that it was over frosted. Probably from too many door openings and closings. Be prepared with cleanup sponges and such! Note: store food properly while defrosting!

When starting wash cycle the dishwasher cda cw447 doesnt appear to be getting enough water in and is making a droning / whirring / electrical ? noise. pipes all connected ok inc aquastop water supply unit,...


Try removing the inlet pipe, and refitting, might fix it, else likely that the
Inlet water soleniod failing/failed or tiny mesh filter (it does come out for cleaning) behind the inlet hose clogged. Temporaily bypass the aquastop water stop unit; it might be the culprit!

A replacement solenoid is usually only about £10 from www.espares.co.uk, or ebay sellers (no connection with these but they are very good), fits in minutes (2 or 3 electrical spades ,and a posidrive or two) and usually fixes all water related problems. the noise you can hear is probably the solenoid trying to actuate, will be droning/buzzing sound.
could simply be stuck with some foreign matter in there that's got through the mesh filter but unlikely. they normally fail and sound terrible.

Don't throw your dishwasher away for the sake of a £10 part.
Good luck

Samsung RSH1DTMH fridge freezer water filter replacement


The water pipe connection to the filter is a one way fitting which means that the more one pulls to free the pipe, the more the filter connection grips it. There is a circlip on each end of the filter - push the circlip firmly in towards the filter while pulling the pipe free, it should come free easily. Needs 3 hands, two to depress the circlip and one to pull the pipe free. Preferably put a container under the filter (there can be a bit of spillage) while you're replacing it and remember to test the connections once you've fitted the new filter before pushing the fridge back into place.

Samsung's instructions should be clearer.
