Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators
How do you fix a slow leak in the water dispenser of a Whirlpool ed25rq side by side? the unit won't dispense water when the lever is pressed (this problem began several months ago), but the slow leak just started yesterday and continues whether or not the lever is pressed
You might need to replace the bottom section and spare parts should be available readily online. I had a slow leak on my samsung side by side and it was resolved once i bought a new part...Hope this is of some use but not an expert.....

It's quite possible it is plugged by hard water deposits forming in the supply line as these lines are quite small. You can check if it is plugged by shutting off the supply line and removing it. After removal turn it back on but have the end in a bucket in case the blockage is in your fridge unit. If water comes out it is in the fridge. Usually there is a screen to prevent large particles from entering. Make sure that is clean. Try these and see if that helps. If it doesn't get back to me as the trouble shooting will get more intense. I'm hoping this helps.

on the bottom of the faceplate there should be two small pry spots to remove faceplate. once the faceplate is removed you should have acess to the inside.

depending on the brand and the style, locate the filter and change it out. Please note that you must empty out the remaining water from the refrigerator cause if you don't, when you change out the filter you might get the same taste for a while until all the remaining water is replaced by freash water.

Hi. This will usually be the fault of the water inlet valve. The solenoid based valve may have debris building up, thus, causing the valve not to close properly, after usage. Kindly, follow the procedure below to confirm the damage, replace the valve, if needed.
The water inlet valve is located behind your refrigerator. Find the water supply line coming into the valve and turn it off at the source (typically under the sink). Disconnect the supply line. Remove the screws that secure the inlet valve in place.
The water inlet valve is connected by two wires. Label the wire placement on the water inlet valve before disconnecting the wires. The wires are connected to the terminals with slip on connectors
Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If the connectors are corroded they should be replaced.
Inspect the filter screen where the supply line connects. Remove any debris or deposits that may have built up using a toothbrush, or warm running water. If you cannot clear the clog, it will be necessary to replace the valve (the filter is not removable on most inlet valves).
Test the water inlet valve for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X100 (if available, otherwise use the nearest ohm setting). Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should display a reading of 200 to 500 ohms. Close inspection of the inlet valve and especially the coil may reveal the exact ohm resistance rating to test for. If the water inlet valve does not pass this test, it should be replaced.
