Icemaker Input leaks

I have a Whirlpool refrigerator ED5NTQXKQ00 that leaks where the feed line hooks to the refrigerator. It appears the connection might be corroded. If that is the case can I replace this part?

Yes, you can replace the part. It's the water fill valve.

But take the line off the connection first and make sure the valve is corroded too severely. It may be that you can just redo/replace the fittings cut the line back a little on the house side water line.

How do i make my icemaker work


If it came with the refrigerator then everything is hooked up with the exception of the water line in the back, which if you go to home depot you can ask for a stainless steel icemaker line and they'll get it for you. Then all you have to do is connect one end of the line to the faucet if there is one, and the other end to the valve which is at the lower right or left hand side, normally on the right if your standing behind it. Now if there isn't a water connection behind the fridge your going to have to locate a water supply and then when you get the icemaker line tell them you need a installation kit.

When the water line is hooked up to the back of fridge and the line is turned on the refrigerator leaks water out the ice dispensor and does not shut off the flow of water to the fridge.Thus causing it to...


the water soliniod maybe clogged with calcium. if you get it loose you can take the plastic hose loos from the icemaker side of the water valve see if it is dripping or running out of there. if alot is coming out maybe getting voltage too long from the icemaker. it will be one or the other.

My icemaker went on the blink, found water all over kitchen floor now it will not make ice but the freezer functions great. Model number ED2FHAXB04


Sometimes the water inlet are of an ice maker for no reason will freeze up preventing water from reaching the tray and making a mess. What will happen is the ice maker fill tube on the back of the cabinet also freezes up. As a result the icemaker tries to cycle pressure then builds up in the plastic feed line to the fill tube. This pressure build up in a very "low pressure" plastic line causes that plastic line to push itself out of the press to fit connections (fittings) at the back of the unit or under the unit. Hence the next cycle it just ports water to the now open line causing water to go to the floor instead of the icemaker.

You can locate the source of the leak by simply following the plastic fill tube and re-insert it into the fitting. You still need to find the ice build up that caused the initial leak and melt that ice buildup with a hair dryer or a fan until it is clear. Once you clear the ice blockage (near the rear of the icemaker) it should work normally again.

Icemaker not working


The problem is the solenoid or dual valve is leaking and when that water goes inside the freezer freezes up , this valve has to be replaced.

Water leaking from icemaker on outside


If this is your water dispenser leaking
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 shooting out the icemaker hose


(I hooked up the lines and water goes heywire) You hooked up the lines to what? If you changed the water valve you may have the dispenser and ice maker lines reversed along with the electrical connections to the top of the valves.
