SOURCE: ed25rfxfw01 whirlpool fridge water dispenser ...I have a slow drip from the dispenser hose. I assume I need a new water inlet valve. How do I access the inlet valve for replacing?

It should be on the right hand side in the back take off the compressor cover on the back should be 8 or so 1/4 screws nutdriver type and then two more hold on the water valve. If you have a RO system hooked up to refrig you may need to change the filters on the ro or just change the filter on the refrig. those two will also cause the water to drip thru the valve allowing it to drip on the front

My whirlpool american fridge freezers water dispenser is continually dripping what can I do to resolve this problem

Replace the water inlet valve , the piece that the wall water line connects to on the refrig .. Something like a grain of sand , piece of dirt etc , is caught in the rubber bellows , not letting the valve close completely . This will cause a scratch , which will collect anything else that comes thru , so cleaning it out will not work . ( it won't remove the scratch ) .

My Whirlpool washer won't go into the rinse cycle. The water inlet screens are clean and I replaced the timer but obviously wasn't the fix as I still have the problem.

Hi, When the water is suppose to be filling, Can you hear the inlet valve humming? You might need to remove the inlet vavle and check voltage to it. When the water is to be filling, you should get 120V to the valve. Please let me know if this helps or if I can assist you further.

Water continuously running to fridge, overflowing?

Hi, if the only way you could stop the water was to turn it off at the water source, you need to change the water inlet valve. Make sure you check the water fill line for any leaks before you change the valve.
If I canassist you in getting the vavle, please let me know.

Hi Yamanayeemi,
"Dont forget to rate my solution to your STOVE!"- Fixya or helpful?
Before attempting any testing or repairs. unplug your first.! avoiding an electrical shock hazard.
It might likely be your water inlet valve that is bad , corroded or clogged.
The water inlet valve is located behind your refrigerator. Find the water supply line coming into the valve and turn it off at the source (typically under the sink).
Disconnect the supply line. Remove the screws that secure the inlet valve in place.
The water inlet valve is connected by two wires. Label the wire placement on the water inlet valve before disconnecting the wires.
The wires are connected to the terminals with slip on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors.
Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If the connectors are corroded they should be replaced.
Inspect the filter screen where the supply line connects. Remove any debris or deposits that may have built up using a toothbrush or warm running water. If you cannot clear the clog, it will be necessary to replace the valve (the filter is not removable on most inlet valves).
Test the water inlet valve for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X100 (if available, otherwise use the nearest ohm setting).
Place a probe on each terminal.
The multimeter should display a reading of 200 to 500 ohms. Close inspection of the inlet valve and especially the coil may reveal the exact ohm resistance rating to test for. If the water inlet valve does not pass this test, it should be replaced.

Does my suggestions help to solve your problem?
