Check the connections to the solenoid, tight? If problem persists change the solenoid, easily done.

My mom's jenn air side by side refrigerator randomly started dispensing water out of the front. I couldn't stop it until I opened the door. now nothing works on the dispenser but the light.


Sounds like a faulty inlet water solenoid valve. This is normally located on the back of the refrigerator and the water supply from your home connects to it. Be sure to shut off water supply to the solenoid valve before you remove it.

Machine fills too slowly and continues to fill in whole cycle


Remove the water filler hoses at the machine and test the flow of each one. If very slow, check the inlet screens on the faucet ends for plugging and make sure the faucets furnish full flow. The hoses themselves can sometimes become restricting of flow--replace them if so. Next, check the inlet solenoids on the machine for proper flow and shutoff when the power to them is stopped. They may or may not be cleanable--replace them if they are trouble. Hope this helps!

Check the water inlet valve. Remove the water supply hoses and check the small screens inside the openings on the valve. Make sure they are clear or rust or debris. Check the solenoids for continuity using a multimeter or ohmmeter. A lack of continuity means a bad solenoid. I will attach a photo for reference. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

My washer just stops about 2 minutes after starting it during the water loading cycle. i have tried unplugging and turning it off several times but it keeps doing it. any advice?


Check for a water supply problem.Take a look at the water inlet valve. Unplug the machine and remove the water supply hoses. Check the small metal screens inside the openings on the water inlet valve. Make sure they are clear of rust or debris. Check the solenoids. Test for continuity. A lack of continuity means a bad solenoid. I will attach a photo for reference. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Check the solenoids at the water inlet valve. They can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Test for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty solenoid and the water inlet valve assy will need to be replaced. I will attach a photo for reference. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Washer shuts off. We start it, it shuts off. We start it again, shuts back off. Sometimes it runs, sometimes it doesn't.


Check the water water supply at the water inlet valve. Remove the supply hoses and check that the small screens in the inlet valve are not clogged with rust or debris. The water inlet valve solenoids can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty solenoid and the water inlet valve will need to be replaced. I am attaching a photo for reference. Hope this helped and best wishes.

My dishlex dishwasher overflows


The only part that physically allows water to enter a dishwasher (upon receiving power from the control) is the inlet water-valve. I would test the inlet water-valve located directly where you in-coming water line is connected to.

Shut-off power to the dishwasher and remove the 2 prong connection to the water-valve solenoid (small, black, batter size). Test the solenoid for continuity; if bad, replace the entire inlet water-valve (cost about $20)

Cold stopped working


Check the strainer in the cold water inlet line. Make sure it is not plugged. Then,put the cold water line into a bucket and open the valve slowly until water comes out. If water flows freely, it's probably the cold water solenoid. It's pretty easy to replace.
If not, check all valves upstream, check for a collapsed hose, or mineral build up in the pipe (galvanized pipe)
