Question about Whirlpool 21.8 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator with PuR Filtered Ice and Water

Open Question

Whirlpool refrigerator water dispenser is making me sick!

Brand new Whirlpool side-by-side frig, Model #ED2KVEXVL, water has caused burning and bloating in stomach (like bad case of indigestion) and drowsy disposition (almost passed out). Just discovered yesterday it is the dispenser water after drinking a full glass on an empty stomach and immediately the burning sensation started. Then I tried to flush my body with non-dispenser water and the problems seem to have disappeared including the burning and drowsiness. What can be causing this problem?

SOURCE: stomach pain drinking from refrigerator water dispenser

Get a charcoal filter from home depot (about 50.00) and install behind refrig or in cabinet . Filter has replaceable cartridges like for charcoal , lime , calcium . Installs in supply line to refridg . Do not recommend the 11.00 filter installed in line , where you replace the whole filter . Get the replaceable cartridge type .

This may not be the problem now but by the sound of the malfunctioning ice maker, it could be in the future. The start device on some models of refridgerator for maytag and whirlpool have been recalled. If your appliance was manufactured in the last 5-10 years you may be having an issue with this component. Mine recently caught on fire at this device that is located near the compressor. If you would like to be a part of the petition for a recall on this appliance contact me at jboooor@hotmail.com

Frig is very hot on the outside ban that meets the seal


That heat that you feel is part of the design of all refrigerators. Those heaters are there to keep water from condensing on the outside of the cabinet around the freezer door. Just like water condenses on a cup of Ice water. It will do the same on a refrigerator. If those small heaters were not there. The water would cause the paint to rust badly. There are various arrangements of heaters used on Freezers and refrigerators around the doors. Particularly the Freezer door.
As long as the fridge is cooling properly it is fine.
If the fridge fails to get cold, the outside of the cabinet will actually get quite hot.
Hope this helps,
Best, Mark

Slow water flow from the water dispenser


If it was fast at one point there are a couple of things that come to mind. Make sure your water line is not kinked at any point behind the frig. Also, when was the last time you changed your filter? Dirty water filters can cause low water pressure. Let me know if I can help further, good luck! :D

Water filter for ed0gtqxkq00


I looked up your frig and I did not see a filter. If you want to use one, you can install what is called an inline filter. This is simply a filter you install behind the frig attached to the water line going to the frig.

All you have to is unhook the water line from the frig, attach it to your newly bought inline filter, and install another water line on the other side of the filter and hook that back up to the frig!

So now you have a filter and two water lines :) Just make sure to point the filter the right way, the usually have an arrow on them. The water is supposed to flow through them in a certain direction.

Very slow drip from water dispenser. How do I fix


Good day,
A slow continues drip, but still dispenses O.K. is caused by the dual water valve on the bottom rear of the machine not closing completely.
Only fix is replacing the water valve assembly.

Whirlpool Refrigerator water leak through Ice dispenser


You need to remove the ice maker and open the front carefully. It has small micro switches inside it and it sounds like one that opens the water control valve is stuck in the on position. Be careful not to loose the arm spring and how that goes back together as you take it apart. Sea Breeze

Whirlpool ED22PW water not reaching ice maker or front dispenser


It doesn't matter if a whirlpool or any other brand is new or not, if you don't use an inlet water filter the water will taste like **** and sediment will deposit and cause catastrophic ice maker and water dispenser failure.

In door ice dispenser does not work but the water dispenser does.


check to make sure there is water or ice in your ice maker tray. If none then problem is usually a water supply issue to the ice maker. Behind the frig are the water supply inlet valves. One is for the water dispenser in the door. THe other is for the ice maker. However when one goes bad they both are replaced as one unit. Also Check position of fingers in ice maker. If not in a vertical position then try to reset the ice maker unit and worse comes to worse, replace it with a new one.
