Water dispenser not working on Whirlpool mod ED25COXFW01

The water dispenser works for a short period of time, but then I hear a buzzing sound and the water stops. It sometimes will not work at all.

Is there a solenoid of some sort that I need to replace?

Thanks

Tryusing an hairdryer or defrosting the unit completely , this often getrid of blockage caused by frozen lines fixing the problem.

The water lines can also be unblocked from dirt using a thin flexible shaft. This after defrosting.

If all that does not fix the problem, then you may need to replace thewater valve, the dispenser solenoid, or the whole dispenser assembly.

Whirlpool side-by-side fridge water dispenser stopped working this morning. When I depress the lever, I can hear it buzzing, but no water comes out.


Have you checked the water pipe is actually producing water

- Not kinked
- Vale turned on at wall

If you are still making ICE... your drinking VALVE is defective.

Without a model number we can speculate no further.

Water dispenser not working GE model GSH25JSX13


Do you hear a slight buzzing when you try to get water?? If yes, you may have a frozen water line inside the freezer door. GE had some problems with those models. They offer a heater kit that has to be installed in the dispenser area of the freezer door. Once installed, in about a day the water line should be defrosted enough to dispense water again. If you don't hear that buzzing sound when trying to get water, you could have a bad inlet valve which is at the lower back of the refrigerator where your house water line hook to the refrigerator.

Recently bought a house that has system CVA615. Hasn't been used a dozen times they said - so I cleaned per instructions. It now says "hot waster - expel air". Have done everything book said...


When selecting "Hot Water," can you hear a pump working (usually a strong buzzing sound)? If you do, then water path may be blocked or pump itself is jammed. A jammed water pump still makes buzzing sound. May be stuck from not using, for long period of time. Especially, in hard water areas.

My Whirlpool Gold side-by-side refrigerator GS6NVEXSL00 wont give me the ice out the door. It makes ice, but when I press the button on the door nothing happens. Seems like the button went out. HELP!


Does the water dispenser work? Is there a light at the dispenser panel, does it light? Do you hear any noises or motors running when you actuate ice dispenser? You could have a power issue for the dispenser. Some newer whirlpool models have an issue with the wiring leading into the door at bottom being so securley fastened to frame, the lack of movement forces the wires to bend, and in time break, with door usage. If water dispenser works, and you hear no sounds when the ice lever is actuated, then you have a problem with the dispenser panel circuit board. if water works and you hear some sounds when ice lever is actuated, such as a loud popping noise, then you have a bad ice dispenser auger motor, not churning the ice out of the bucket.

Water despenser


The water dispensing valve may not be functioning, if the valve buzzes or hums when the water dispenser is pressed the valve may be mechanically deficient, if there is no sound whatsoever the switch for the dispenser,the dispensing valve coil or its electrical connections may have failed.

I have an old Kenmore 26 side by side that dispenses water and ice. At one point it stopped producing ice and dispensing water. I changed the inline filter and it worked perfectly. Happened again shortly...


It sounds like you need to replace your water inlet valve , it is a dual valve for ice and water in the door and they go out often , the solenoid is not opening anymore , it is located where you hook up the water line.
Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi.
Sounds like the valve that lets the water in on the dispensing cycle is sticking, if you can hear the valve buzzing i would certainly suspect it to be faulty
