GE side by side refrigerator: water/ice dispensor

Hello. Problem originally started as water dispensor stopped dispensing water. We changed the filter as manual said still didn't work. Then water stop going to Ice maker. When this happened we turned off the ice maker. The ice dispensor still works...almost out of ice. Not sure if this helps but before all this happen the ice maker would continue to make ice even after full. Any help would be appreciated; Actual product is GE Mod# GSS25WGPH

    Has anyone verified the shortened plastic theory?

    After I replaced the water filter of my GE GSH25JFTC fridge for the first time, water only dispenses for 2 secs and then stopped. When I switched out the filter and put in the filter bypass plug that came with the fridge, water dispenses ok. I'm guessing that it's a filter problem.

I bought a brand new smartwater replacement filter and after a very short time, my water stopped coming through the door.. took out the new replacement filter and inserted a brand new one .. problem solved.. apparently some of the g.e. smartwater filter replacement cartridges don't have the high enough two plastic inserts which are attached to them at the top of the filter when you screw them on... if you have taken your cartridge in and out a few times, i think it wears down the plastic so it doesn't fit properly and won't put up whatever it is supposed to push up to make the water come through.. I personally think this is a g.e. problem with the replacement filters...

No water in water dispensor


Don't forget that your dual water control valve has two sides. One side is for the ice maker and other side is for water dispenser. The water dispenser side may have recently failed causing water to not enter water filter area or dispenser, Thanks Sea Breeze

No water from dispensor in door.


Ice supply line is frozen in the freezer door. Using a hair dryer with the door open you have to thaw the line. This will take time but this will fix.

Water dispenser not working. Ice dispenser works


There should be a water filter inside the water lines to the water spout. This filter could be clogged, or the water lines themselves may still be somewhat frozen and not allowing flow to the dispenser itself.
You can also test the power to the dispensor to make sure it is drawing water. Can you hear the pump trying to pump water to dispenser? The water valve should also be opening. You can test power to the valve that draws in water from the external water lines.

My GE Profile side by side refrigerator ice dispensor and water dispensor has quit working. The appliance is less than 4 years old. Wanda


The common connection between the two starts at the water fill valve. I have found also that the filter (water) if clogged, will prevent water flow to both. Change the filter first, cheapest and eaisest.

GE PSS25MGMA Crushed ice only, nothing else will select on panel.


Yes , replace the main board . Part number WR55X10656 . There is only partial communication between the main board and the dispensor board . This main board , is behind the 8 " X 10 " panel , on the back of the refrig . Do not replace the dispensor board . I have never come across a bad dispensor board yet . Always a first time though .

No water from Water dispensor


Have you checked your water valve? I dont have your model number but you could have what you call a double water valve and one side of it may be out, alternately you may need to change your water filter if you havent done that yet. I have seen were the water stops dispensing first and then stops making ice. have you changed the filter lately? If not change it then if that doesnt work check water inlet valve...
