Water keeps dripping after it dispenses water thru the door

Side by side Frigidaire with ice & water dispenser and the water keeps dripping after I am done filling my cup with water. It clicks on & off but I have to keep a cup under it to catch the drips. Also drips some when ice trays fill with water.

When you push the button, the CLICK you hear when the water flows is the Water delivery solenoid opening to let water thru, then snapping shut when U R done. The Spring is weak (prob wrong type, size, strength at factory) or the valve seal is cracked, torn, hardened or crushed.

Since all this is inside the door, you will either have to take it apart to see/fix/replace.

Quick fix: turn down the water pressure coming in(?)

Call Mr. Handyman to fix.

If under warranty - they might fix this for you for free
If this is a factory defect, there might be a recall in place for repair/replacement parts

Googlee both - Make/Model + Dripping Valve + Recall
Good Luck!

Frigidaire side by side FFHS2322MBKA ice maker stopped working, but still dispenses water


Change the Water Solenoid Valve. This is a dual solenoid valve, one side is for water thru the door ... the other side supplies water to the ice maker and probably is bad. good Luck! Handy Henry

Frigidaire water dispenser drips constantly. I have been told there is a main water valve and a second valve for the water dispenser. Where is it and how to replace?


if you are referring to the cold water on the door , then there is a solenoid valve on the bottom back left side of fridge, you will see two there , one is for ice maker and one is for water on door , most times it's a good idea to replace both of them , also there should be a filter inside fridge on bottom middle (cartridge) this should be changed monthly to maintain fresh taste and keep foreign objects out of tubes

Water dispenser leaks on model number KSRS25FGSS13. I HAVE FLUSH THE AIR OUT AND IT STILL HAS A VERY SMALL DRIP


Probably replace the water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in. Disconnect the water line to the dispenser there and see if it keeps dripping when you try the dispenser.

A slow continues drip, but still dispenses O.K. is caused by the dual water valve on the bottom rear of the machine not closing completely.

Side by side Frigidaire. The water dispenser


The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Your water line could be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line under the unit before it goes into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if it comes out there. If it does leave the door open till it thaws
disconnect the line to the water dispenser at the water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in and try the dispenser. if you hear the valve work but water doesn't come out, the valve is bad. If you don't hear the valve, the dispenser switch is bad.

Water dripping from the water dispenser on freezer


If the water is dripping from the dispenser tube, you need a water valve. The valve is not shutting off completely. Check to make sure water is not dripping from ice chute. If the chute door doesn't seal off you will get moisture there and it will also frost up the ice chute.
