Question about KitchenAid KBRP20ERSS Stainless Steel Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

Automatic water dispenser not working/bypass valve leaking alot

I have a bottom freezer stainless steel model that I bought only 3 years ago. It froze up in the refrigerator section, the automatic water dispenser stopped working and the bypass valve started leaking. It has been leaking for about 2 weeks. I have a large roaster under the valve to catch the water. When a friend unscrewed and removed the blue bypass valve, the leak doubled. The water dispenser is still not working. When all this started, I turned the frig setting down from 4 or 5 to 3 and then to 2. I am not even sure if it is keeping the milk and groceries cold enough, but the eggs in the bottom hamper are still frozen?? I am getting ready to leave town for 10 days and need to get the leak under control. Please HELP!!!! Thank you for any remedies you may suggest.

Dear Rodeo mary,
Before you do anything else, please first defrost the fridge. Yes, turn it off and leave it open for a couple of hours until all the ice in all compartments has melted. Clean it and put it on again. Is it ok ? Please let me know.

What controls the water dispenser? It works but takes about five seconds to shut off.


You have a problem with relay and needs to be replaced. I did on mine about 2 years ago. The other possibility could be the shut. Off valve not stopping the water immediately.

No water from dispenser Matag New filter solenoid valve working, tube to dispenser seems to be blocked


Hello Hans;


My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

There could be several areas that would effect your water dispenser not working:

1.) When you depress the water dispenser do you hear a 'Click'? If not you have a bad water dispenser contact switch.
I would send you a diagram but I do not have your model number.

2.) In the lower back of your fresh food section is your water dispenser water tank. At times this can freeze near the freezer section. Look in the lower corner of the freezer & your fresh food section for ice build-up.

3.) You could have a bad water filter. This does happen often. Remove the water filter and test you water dispenser.

4.) Do you have water leaking out of the bottom of your dispenser door? If so you have a split in the tubing in your water dispenser door.

5.) Is your ice maker working? Often the water valve to your refrigerator becomes plugged up and you do not get sufficient water pressure 60 PSI to operate your water dispenser solenoid valve.

Water dispenser not working on kenmore trio refrigerator


The tubing inside the door is most likely frozen. Mine did that a year ago. I had to remove gasket and loosen screws around edge and allow to defrost inside door. There was a lot of ice around dispenser and tubing.

Load noise when I turned on water for ice


I assume it was the water dispenser. It has a solenoid on the water inlet valve which can stick. Is the noise coming from the back where the inlet valve is.

Ice maker is not working anymore. Water doesn't fill the tub. Water dispenser out of the door is still working


I need you to double check the model number. Maytag has a service library at this link. http://www.servicematters.com/maytag_library/html/index.html
By placing the first 3 letters in the search feature it will take you to models like yours. Chose the correct model that you have and enter the number in the search. I believe that the water control valve on back of your refrigerator is the problem. Maytag is very good about helping their customers. Let me know if you have problems gettting the information you need, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Internal water dispenser stopped working


I lowered the temp on the freezer to 4 overnight, by morning water dispenser is working fine. I think that when we changed the temp to 7 (in order to make more ice ) it froze the water pipe going to the dispenser. I am going to keep both fridge and freezer at 5 ,and hope this will not happen again.

Ice Maker stopped making ice - water dispenser is fine.


well first the icemaker valve and water despensor valve a separate so you might want to try but to change it out you have to change both valves cause they made together then also check and makes sure your tube is not froze up and if that aint it then change your icemaker now for a little tip the icemaker will not run as long as the freezer door is open

Fisher and Paykel fridge buttom freezer with water dispenser


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?
