Water dispenser in fridge

I have a working fridge with the water dispenser not pouring water out. I have checked all the water systems. Water filter changed; water going into the icemaker-making ice, but when I place a glass to get filtered water out--no water comes out?

Re: water dispenser in fridge

Possible problems could a bad water valve (dual valve), bad micro switch which is activated by pressing the button for water to come out. On some models the bracket that holds the micro switch could be broken not allowing the button to activate.

No Water going in to the fridge

Hi Norm,

Most fridges don't need a motor to run in order to dispense water. A simple on / off solenoid on the water line (same for the ice maker) that makes a click when changing from off to on and on to off is usually all anyone hears (the ice maker makes rumbling sounds and you can hear ice falling into the bin - too).

Check for ice. If it has a maker and it is making ice, the problem could be a defective water dispenser switch, solenoid or other circuit component or wire. If no ice, I'd suspect a filter or water supply issue.

Make sure the filter is fully inserted and twisted into place. Many filters have marks to align when 1) inserting and 2) to let you know when it is installed correctly. When sure it is installed correctly - try to dispense water again. Many fridges will dispense water without a filter. Check your manual before trying this though! If not working still, remove the filter and try to dispense water. If you're able to dispense water, the problem is either the installation of the filter or the filter itself. Try to re-install it correctly. Try to dispense water again.

If it still doesn't work - call the plumber back and ask why there's no water. Or - try this yourself:

Locate the point of attachment to the domestic water supply that the plumber used. There should be a valve to turn the water on and off. If off, turn ON. Try to dispense water again.

If that doesn't work - check to see if the fridge has pinched, kinked or crushed the water supply line. You may need to move the fridge forward to gain access to the water line and connection point on the fridge. Repair or replace the line as needed and route in such a way that moving the fridge in or out will not cause it to damage the line again.

Good luck!

Model #WSF26C2EXY02. Why is ice maker not making ice?

When the ice-tray is full it pushes 'UP' a lever that shuts the water supply off. When you move the lever down all goes back to normal.

Try checking the mesh screen which is in the water line where the water supply connects to the water inlet valve on the back. It can get stopped up with sediment.

Water dispenser no longer works.

Where the water supply connects to the Ref there is one water valve but, two solenoids. One for the water and one for the ice maker. An OHM meter will tell you if these solenoids are good.

Solenoids good;
Set the meter to volts and check if power is getting to the water solenoid while pressing the water despensor. No power, bad switch.
