Question about Whirlpool ED2FHEXN Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Water dispenser problem

Newly installed fridge (5/27/09) -- Whirlpool side by side 21.8 cu ft with PUR water filter and in-door ice maker. The man who installed the fridge said to wait 24 hours until the first batch of ice was made and to throw it out along with the first gallon or two of water. Well, the water finally came out but it has been days now and I have barely gotten a gallon of water to flow out of the dispenser. The icemaker seems to be making sufficient ice and yet the water does not flow out of the dispenser appropriately. The stream starts okay for about one teaspoon of water and then immediately becomes an extremely thin drip then nothing. I even removed the filter to see if that is what is holding it up and the problem remains. Doesn't it seem like all the air would be purged from the lines by now? Please advise.

Did the man who installed it use plastic hose or copper pie? PLastic pipe can get crimpled (closed) and starve the water supply.
Simply move the refrigerator far enough away from the wall and see if the tubing is crimped. If it is copper and it is crimped- you should call the installer back to repair the copper pie. Once copper pipe is crimped- it is unusable and must be refitted with a coupling or union or some other proper repair.

Maybe this is all that is wrong.......
Hope this helpes!!!

Kenmore side-by-side not dispensing ice or water, the ice maker has been replaced, no water going into the tray. I cannot locate the water filter, does this model have one?


Don't know what is the model number of your fridge. 1.Need check electric water valve under the fridge. If that fridge made by GE (Kenmore just a Sears brand name and they use several others manufacturers for refrigeration), usually it's a frozen plastic water supply line inside freezer door. You could unplug fridge for 24 hours (you have to put food from freezer to other freezer).

Freezer does not make ice


You need to check and see if ice maker has any water init. if not check the fill tube that goes thru the back wall for stoppage while you have it out rin the maker thru a harvest mode and listen for the sounds of the solonoid opening. If tube is full you'll need to replace the slow leaking valve a common problem. for parts call 704-819-6557
