There is a valve mounted on the rear of the cabinet which is supposed to cut off the water flow when the water level reaches a set point. A clear plastic tube will run from the bottom of the tub to this valve. Replace the valve, reconnect the plastic tube. Should solve the problem.

My ice maker is not working on my gs5 sha side by side refrigerator freezer, it is spraying water everywhere inside the freezer, any help?


Make sure the water is coming from the ice maker by using additional light to spot the source of the leak then you possibly have a defective water fill valve leaking water slowly and causing water to freeze where water exits the tube into the ice maker. Once there is ice there and the ice maker calls for water the water either spews all over everything or is blocked from filling the ice maker cube slots altogether. The only repair is to replace your=> Whirlpool Refrigerator Water Inlet Valve W10408179 I'm here on Fixya if you have questions

The water will not stop flowing into the ice tray after it has filled.


Chances are that the dual water control valve on the ice maker side is defective and not shutting off all the way allowing water to slowly leak by and mess up the freezer with frozen water everywhere. The replacement part is=> WR57X10051 Water Inlet Valve

If the water is simply an extended over fill after ice maker refills that will be caused by the ice maker itself. WR30X10093 Ice Maker Assembly

Water leaks when the ice maker turns on. When the water starts to run to make new ice cubes it leaks out the bottom of the refrigerator.


You most likely have a slow leak in the water control valve side for the ice maker. What is most likely happening is as the slow leaking water reaches the end of its fill tube there is a slug of ice and instead of flowing and filling the ice maker it goes everywhere but there. I have photos of this happening but will need to search for it to show you. Please send your model number and I will point out the replacement for you, Thanks, Sea Breeze

I have a GE Profile side by side fridge and need help with my icemaker. It's making great ice but seems to have to much water. Is there some way to adjust the time on for the water fill valve?


Your model has the electronic control behind the front cover and not very serviceable. The part number providing your refrigerator is the PSW26P model the ice maker part number would be WR30X10093 for that Model. You may also take into consideration that it is also a possible bad water valve on the rear leaking after shut off. That would show up as water running over the sides and the freezing and possibly freezing the fill tube in the back of the ice maker causing water to go everywhere. But most likely it is the control board inside the front of your ice maker. Thanks Sea Breeze

Leaking water in icemaker. water from icemaker leaks into freezer and freezes on freezer wall


If you are sure that it's coming from the ice maker I believe that you possibly have a leaking water control valve on the side for the ice maker on the rear of refrigerator near floor there is a dual water valve control. Many times when this happens the water will freeze in the fill tube that fills the ice maker in the rear of freezer. You can defrost the frozen water in the fill tube with a hair dryer but that will not stop the problem from coming back. When that happens water tends to at times go everywhere but the ice maker. You can test the water control valve several ways. By unplugging the side to the ice maker and if water continues to flow slowly to the ice maker then the dual water control valve will need replaced, Sea Breeze

Ice machine freezes up


Open the front white cover. Inside is an adjusting screw with plus and minus. This adjusts the water fill.

Ice maker making little ice/Leaking water on floor.


The ice trays bust be cleaned to prevent calcium build up. This will prevent the ice from froming in trays.
The overflow could be caused by the freezer not being level, or by the water fill timer not shutting of the incoming water. This will keep the water temp. too high to freeze the water. Also check the fill valve for sepage.

Kenmore HE4T Washer Leak


there are 2 possible causes.
either
inlet valve leaking - turn water off and if water fill stops, it indicates valve leaking
valve being powered when machine off. this is very unlikely but to check, disconnect washer and see if problem stops
also, if drain is plumbed into a spigot on the sink trap, every time you empty the sink, some of the water will flow into the machine. to cure this, take the drain hose as high as possible under the sink in a swan neck

Whirlpool dishwasher leaks everywhere


CHECK YOUR HOSES FOR CRACKS. BE SURE THEY ARE ATTACHED SECURELY TO THE PUMP OULET.
THERE IS ALSO A BLACK HOSE FROM THE VALVE THAT GOES UP THE LEFT SIDE TO A VACUUM BREAK ON THE SIDE OF THE TUB. BE SURE THE HOSE HASN'T BEEN DAMAGED OR DISCONNECTED. IF THERE IS SUFFICIENT SUPPLY HOSE, PULL THE DISHWASHER OUT OF IT'S INSTALLATION AND TURN IT ON. WATCH FOR WATER DRIPPING ON THE FLOOR AND TRACE IT BACK TO FIND THE PROBLEM.
