    Hey people make sure you use the right water filter for this fridge. I tried another type that supposedly was compatible from sears. After six months I had to replace with original filter. So don't try another type if it ain't the original!

Check to see if the water line is kinked or if the valve is partly check to see if you have some blockage in the line. Shut the water off, remove the filter element,if you hace one and blow air in the water dispenser. If that doesn't do it, remove the line after the shut off, and blow air in before the filter. if all is good you may have to replace the water valve solenoid. Is your ice maker making ice ? if not it is not getting water either. let me know if this helps

How do I empty water from conditioner dispenser

The dispenser often has a small amount of water in it after a completed cycle so that's nothing to worry about. A lot of water usually means the dispenser needs a good clean. Pull the dispenser as far as it will go and then give a sharp tug to pull it completely out. The middle dispenser cover can then be taken out and cleaned, and so can all the other parts you've removed. The pipes in the machine and in the dispenser tray should be cleaned out well, as these usually cause the problem of retaining water. Put the cover back on the centre section securely and then push the whole tray back into the machine gently. Good luck!

Why is aSide by side fridge leaking brown liquid from below ice maker?

Thank you for your post, friend!

I understand that you are seeing a brown liquid come from under your dispenser area. I would recommend you having a professional come out to your appliance to check and assure the water lines are connected properly and not developing any moisture problems to form from under your dispenser. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

Leaking water dispenser

Sounds like the water valve isn't seating properly, so a small amount of water gets by causing the leak. Replace the dual water valve.

Water dispenser not working

Have you changed the water filter? they can plug up over time. The water tube can freeze in the door. To test this there usually is a disconnect under the freezer door side of the grill you can disconnect this and hit the water dispenser lever. If the door is getting water then it is frozen in the door. If not the water valve could be your problem there are two sides to the water valve one for the water dispenser and one for the icemaker. A last possibility is there is a water tank or tubing loop in the refrigerator behind the crisper this could have frozen.

Glasses and dishes are coming out with white residue and clumps on them after full normal wash and dry cycle

Hello.. Firstly check thet the spray arms are clean. make sure there arent any jets blockd. Make sure the spray arms turn freely. Before closing the door on a cycle spin the arms to ensure no item is stopping the turning action.
make sure all of the water pumps out of the machine. There should be only a small amount of water under the filter after use. Any blockages should be cleared. Check where the drain connects under the sink for a partial blockage down the spiggot.

So if all this is Ok then ensure there is rinse aid in the dispenser. do not use tablets onlyrinse aid in the dispenser provided. Use a small amount of powder in the dispenser. Too much powder can over saturate the solution doing the wash and leave too much cloudy residue.

I assume the water being used is not too hard. It can look clear in a glass but be too hard. Especially artesian water.

You might try an acid descaler to return the machine to an internally clean condiditn. By the way always use a hort cycle. Economy cycles dont do yhe jop over a long period. You need to have a hot 70 degree cycle regularly.
Good luck

During the rinse and spin cycle, water is sprayed everwhere

There may be too much water and not enough clothes in the washer. If that is the case the water rises up the side of the tub when spinning and overflows the inner tub. Usually it goes into the outer tub but it can spurt out through bleach dispenser and run down the inside of the cabinet or hit the lid and splash out. Set water level (Xsmall, small, medium, large, Xlarge) appropriate for amount of clothes.

Kenmore/Sears 417.43142200 bleach dispenser not dispensing

Before you do anything, make sure that the plastic part in the bleach dispenser container is pushed in. Fill with bleach to the "max" line, written on the plastic part. Start the wash cycle and make sure that water goes into the bleach dispenser. Once water flows into the dispenser, the bleach/water mixture rises and should automatically dispense into the washer. We had this same problem. We removed the dispenser unit and took it to the sink. We then filled it with water and it started coming out from the bottom automatically. So sort of suction is caused from the amount of water and it starts to flow. Basically, you aren't adding enough bleach into the dispenser if the water flows into it as the wash cycle runs.

Detergent in clothes

How much detergent are you using? I'm wondering if there is a residual amount of detergent left in the washer. Does it have a dispenser? If your washer has a dispenser for liquid detergent you could try pouring a small amount of really hot water into the dispenser to ty to clear it. Then try running a small empty cycle or two with plain cold water. Remember not to ever use more detergent than is recommended for your washer.

Thank you for using Fixya.
