Was water dispensing before filter was replaced? If it was then maybe filter needs to be purged to get air out of line. Only 3 other issues it could be. 1. water valve coil on back of fridge is bad. 2. Water reservoir is frozen up behind shelves in freezer section. 3. Your microswitch behind dispensor cover isnt activating water valve coil. Not much else could be the problem. Start with the valve

No dispensing water...GE refrigerator


There may be an interlock switch on the housing where the filter or dummy stopper is inserted. If this interlock is not satisfied, then the water dispenser won't turn on. This would prevent water from spraying all over the inside of the refrigerator if the filter is not seated properly. Check to make sure the filter or plug is inserted properly.

The water valve has two sides. One side is for the ice maker and one side is for the dispenser. If the dispenser side fails you have to change the complete dual water control valve. What is the model number of your GE Refrigerator? Sea Breeze

There are 3 types of the PSW26P. They are basically the same when it comes to changing water filters. I do not recommend placing air into the water system, I believe that is what at this point is the problem. After changing water filter there is a period of time that you need to push the dispense water switch to allow for the air that is trapped in filter to purge. One moment I will send links, Sea Breeze

My water dispenser is leaking. I've replaced the filter and checked the dispenser if it's stuck but it's not. What should I check or replace? Thanks


You models has a tubing coil as a water tank. Once you changed the filter air bubbles remained in the system. Slow leaks or drips from the water dispenser can be the result of air trapped in the water line and will usually occur just after replacing a water filter. When the filter is changed, a large amount of air enters the system and needs to be removed by running water from the dispenser until all the air pockets are gone. Another reason is the water valve itself may not be sealing when closed allowing water pressure from the supply like to work its way into the dispenser water line. This is a less likely reason, but you should be aware of this possibility when diagnosing your own problem. Thanks, Sea Breeze

No water, no ice, but new water filter cartridge


If it was running before the filter change you need to purge the filter cartridge of the air in the lines. Also check voltage on the back on the water control valves . While someone presses dispenser you should get 120volts AC on the plug receptacle side for the dispenser . Let me know what you find, Sea Breeze

The water that goes to the door actually is routed through the hinge on the freezer door. Take a look and see if you can't find where the tube comes out and goes into the water dispenser. I bet it has come loose and is rerouting the water down the side of the fridge and onto the floor; hence the puddle.

Also, just because you don't drink the water doesn't mean you don't drink the water! If you use ice from the ice dispenser then you ARE drinking the water. The water that feeds the ice trays comes through the filter, so you might consider changing it every 6 months rather you use the water dispenser or not.

Hope this helps, I have one too and its causing a different set of problems...
