Question about General Electric GSH25JSXSS Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator

Open Question

Why is my fridge making a noise and not dispensing water in more than a drip?

We replaced the water filter, and the fridge made a loud, constant noise. When we put the old filter back in, it stopped but the water comes out much more slowly. When we removed the filter and just put the cover on where the filter goes, it makes the noise occasionally, but now the water doesn't come out of the dispenser quickly, it just drips. How can we fix this? We've tried three different filters.

We have the same model and just had exactly the same problem. The coil behind the fresh produce trays is frozen. There are 2 coils, one provides water for the water dispenser and the other to the ice maker. Looking into the fridge the water dispenser coil is on the right hand side. We unplugged the fridge for a couple of hours and the problem has been solved. Try increasing the temperature of your fridge by a degree or two.

Why is the water dispenser constantly dripping?


If the water is coming from the water dispenser itself then most likely you have a water valve that bis going bad and it will only get worse.

Frigidaire water dispenser drips constantly. I have been told there is a main water valve and a second valve for the water dispenser. Where is it and how to replace?


if you are referring to the cold water on the door , then there is a solenoid valve on the bottom back left side of fridge, you will see two there , one is for ice maker and one is for water on door , most times it's a good idea to replace both of them , also there should be a filter inside fridge on bottom middle (cartridge) this should be changed monthly to maintain fresh taste and keep foreign objects out of tubes

A slow drip in water dispenser


This sounds like a sticking solenoid valve. When you depress the lever for you water dispenser it activates a valve, usually at the bottom back of the fridge. It might look something like this:

25380372-1h1xuof4er41rm4qkikzo3jl-4-0.jpg Sometimes they just burn out and stop working or the seal inside fails sometimes from particulates in the water. Some people put a pre-filter on the water hose that attaches to the fridge just in case. If you have a water filter inside your fridge this does not protect the solenoid. They are next to impossible to repair so a replacement is needed. Just go to Amazon or eReplacement parts and search for your fridge model number with the search terms "water dispenser solenoid". If you are mechanically inclined you can replace yourself or get an appliance tech to do it. It's a 15 minute job.

My Amana french door/bottom freezer is leaking water. Did the procedure with hot water the drain in back of the freezer, although it seemed clear of ice. That didn't help. The leaking stops when I...


Two possibilities:
1. A cracked plastic tube. These will leak whenever there's a call for water - either the chilled water dispenser, or re-filling the icemaker tray (two seperate tubes). Pay particular attention to anywhere the tubes are clamped to the chassis; anywhere they're routed near or under the refrigeration unit; and near the solenoid valve - especially if there's a tight loop in the tube there.
2. A bad (leaking) connection where one of the tubes exits the water valve. Again, these will leak whenever the valve is activated.

Those plastic tubes don't last forever. I've replaced many of them for the same symptoms. They're known to simply deteriorate with age.
Manuf's make good money selling replacement tubing kits.

Water dribbling out of dispencer whirlpool american fridgefreezer


Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out of it and see if you have a slow drip. Try the dispenser to see if it's just drips after use.

Please advise where the dispenser is leaking? If it is dripping out the front of the door, then I suggest you run the water dispenser to flush about 3 liters of water. Does the noise stop when you open the fridge door?

Water Dispenser Drips


Had the same problem after replacing over seven water valves and installing a water regulator in the water line to the refrigerator with no help. Had to reduce the water pressure to about 27 pounds the reduce most of the drips. It drips an amount about the size of a quarter and when the water gets the coldest it stops the drip, but there is always a droplet at the end of the water disperser tube.

The problem is with water stored in the refrigerator side of the box. Water come in and does not leak. After the water gets colder it expands and oozes drips from the water dispenser. It is worse with the roll of tubing behind the crisper drawer on the bottom, because there is no room for expansion in the tubing. We replaced the tubing with and older style tank and it helped some, but not completely. The solution is 1. Try to buy a refrigerator with a tank instead of the roll of tubing in the bottom of the refrigerator side. 2. Don't use the water dispenser. 3. Reroute the tubing directly to the water dispenser and bypass going into the refrigerator, the water will not be as cold. 4. Avoid those built by Whirlpool.

Water dispenser dripping


Your house valve may not be totally closed (bad seal or something) letting a small bit of water through. Disconnect the line to the fridge completely (in the back) to be sure. That way even if the fridge solenoid valve is bad AND the house valve is bad you won't get dripping. If you know the valve is good, there are times when the water filter will have air trapped in it letting the water in the line drip out slowly until it's finally empty. Pull any filters you have also.
