Could be couple of thing, but I think that first you need to check the connector. You open your refrigerator from both sides and then pull out the grille (don't worry it won't break) then if you see at your left there's a connector that put together a 5/16 water tube with a 1/4 water tube, try to fit both water tubes in the connector, maybe one of those is loose and that's the why of the dripping.

The other thing may be is with the mechanical-electrical interface, when you press the paddle, is you see the activation under the dispenser, it touches with a limit switch, maybe the limit switch is stuck with something when you activate or it is not working properly.

Also if you have a multimeter check the valve to see if it's not a problem with the signal that is coming to the valve, I mean if the problem is that even without press the paddle the dispenser start to dispense water.

When water leaks from the dispenser like this it will be caused by a defective water control valve that will not shut properly when off. The leaking water is the same as a leaking faucet. The KSCS25IN uses a=> W10247725-Water Control Valve or HERE

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.

Kitchenaid model ksrs25ilss02 water filter


Are you saying water is dripping out the ice dispenser or the water dispenser, a water filter would have nothing to do with this, it only filters water, it does not pump water nor does it shut it off. If water
is dripping from the ice dispenser, it is because the rubber gasket
is bad on the flap that seals after ice is dispensed. If water is dripping
from the water dispenser, it is the shut off for the water, you can put a glass under it and push for water a few times,on and off and see if this makes it stop, if not you would need to have this replaced. Any questions please post back.

Water keeps dripping after it dispenses water thru the door


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

Good Luck!

Water dripps


I realize this is an old answer, but I'm experiencing the same problem and found what I hope is a much simpler fix:
https://youtu.be/hAEdjhaZoaQ
This is a Youtube video which explains how air trapped in the water line can cause a drip from the dispenser. Apparently, allowing a gallon of water to flow continuously through the dispenser should...uh...dispense with the problem!
Hope this helps you, and me!

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.

Water dispenser dripping


Your house valve may not be totally closed (bad seal or something) letting a small bit of water through. Disconnect the line to the fridge completely (in the back) to be sure. That way even if the fridge solenoid valve is bad AND the house valve is bad you won't get dripping. If you know the valve is good, there are times when the water filter will have air trapped in it letting the water in the line drip out slowly until it's finally empty. Pull any filters you have also.
