The problem is most likely at the water inlet valve located at the floor at the back of the refrigerator. These valves have a seal that should close off after use but sometimes stick or get a foreign object in the seat. It is intermittent causing only an occasional leak. Sadly, there is no service to the valve and you can only replace it. Good luck, AJ

My Kenmore side by side fridge #596.55669500 is leaking through the water outlet in the door. Not constantly but often enough to be a problem. What could cause this and is it something I can repair myself?


If its dripping water mostly after using Changing the water solenoid in the back will fix the problem, Thats the blue valve on the back that is connected to the water supply line.
If its turning on intermittently and dispensing water you may have to replace the control board for the dispenser.
Its either hard water causing the fill valve(Solenoid) to not close all the way or an electrical current opening the valve .

My Kenmore side by side unit leaks water onto the floor and the water dispenser has stopped working. When I hit the dispense switch I hear water squirting.


Probably the plastic tube that came from the solenoid is broken somewhere between the solenoid and the dispenser(usually under the refrigerator).

Kenmore 417 starts then stops when water doesnt come out.


You could have a clog in the housing underneath the dispenser where the water flows through a hose into the tub.
Pull the dispenser drawer completely out.
There is a tab that needs to be depressed to release the drawer and remove it.
Check the opening at the bottom of the housing just inside the dispenser housing opening to see if a small sock or garment is clogging this opening.
Reach down into this opening to see if an item is inside the hose.
This is the normal issue that will cause water to leak out of the dispenser housing.

Wash the dispenser drawer thoroughly with warm water. Make sure that you pull off the siphon covers and wash all siphon holes. This process is described in your owner's manual. Replace the dispenser drawer and try the washer again.

Kenmore 57033 Water Dispenser Broken


I had a similar problem on a frigidaire side by side. I think the water line may be freezing. My solution was to remove the filter inside the refridgerator and drain it and reinstall. This causes the water to flow into the filter and eliminates any ice in the tubing. I have not had the problem in a while. While not a true fix, it may help narrow it down.
Later on, I eventually replaced the microswitch on the door dispenser for an intermittent dispenser problem.

Hope this helps.
