Water line to water dispenser broken

I have a side by side LG refrigerator with a water / ice dispenser in the freezer door. The water line for the water dispenser is broken so when the button is pressed to dispense water, water runs onto the floor. Ice maker is still working fine and water doesn't leak unless the button is pressed. How do you take the dispenser out of the door? I was able to take the trim ring with the electronics panel off and also the button actuator and plastic chute so that everything is open. It appears that the door was assembled around the dispenser assembly and that nothing is accessible without tearing into the door which can't be done because it is foamed together. How can I replace the water line to the dispenser?

    Update. Pulled the bottom panel off the front of the fridge. The line is broken where it makes the bend and goes into the bottom of the door. Is it possible to remove this line from inside the door and replace it? If so, how?

@ Scootertramp

You tell us about this board or that board but never tell us where to located or get at these boards. Would you please clarify that?

My ice and water started dispensing sporadically, though the lights were working fine. After I removed the kick board at the bottom, cleaned out the little connector and put it back together, nothing on the door works. All else works fine.

If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.

If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.

SOURCE: I just replaced ice maker

Is there water or ice in the ice mold? If not put water in it and see if it dumps the ice after it’s frozen. If there is ice, lift the cut off arm and let it drop to see if it will start.
If it does dump the ice but don’t refill with water.
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

I have a LG 26911 TT it does not dispence water but there is water leaking out of the bottom of the freezer door handle


the water comes from the house water through a filter then to the freezer where it is used to make ice and then chilled water goes on to the water dispenser. if you are making ice ok then the little tube that goes to the dispenser is broke or the valve that opens to allow water to fill your glass is broken or plugged up. You will need to disassemble the unit from inside the door... I sudjest taking a lot of pictures as you do the disassembly to aid you in putting it all back together.oh.. perhaps deforsting the fridge first might fix theproblem... if your lucky.

Our LG fridge had an issue where the water supply was cut off, so the ice cube maker stopped working as well as the water dispenser in the front. The water valve was replaced, and the ice maker started...


it could be a frozen water tank inside freezer door. if so, door will need to be replaced; as, there was maybe a spot where the foam inside door wasn't sprayed properly. disconnect water line fitting under door behind kick plate; close door and try dispenser. this will verify if it's the door or not.

The ice maker isn't working. There is no water in the line.


I have a similar problem for my LSC27911ST. There is no water coming out from the dispenser, although ice maker seems to be working.

I didn't do anything other than keep trying water dispenser in hope that water can be drawn out from the inner pipes.

After opening the freezer door a number of times, tried dispense ice and then tried dispensing water a number of times, eventually water come out again.

Maybe the water line in the refrigerator was frozen. It is very hot today, and maybe the refrigerator over work too much.

GE Side By Side Ice Machine & Water dispenser not getting water


you may have a pin hole in your water line to your dispenser or you could be leaking at the water valve itself on the water dispenser side. you'll have to pull the refrigerator out from the wall and look where the main water line goes into the back of the refrigerator. you will probably have to take the back off to see. be sure you put the back of the refrigerator back when you are through.

Water dispenser does not work on my lg refrigerator. Water only trickles out a little. Ice maker isn't working either.

You can disconnect the line under the unit before it goes into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if it comes out there. If it does leave the door open till it thaws. Covering the opening with a blanket will prevent the loss of cold in the freezer.
disconnect the line to the water dispenser at the water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in and try the dispenser. if you hear the valve work but water doesn't come out, the valve is bad. If you don't hear the valve, the dispenser switch is bad. GE makes a heater that will prevent this from happing again. The part number for this heater is WR49X10173.

Water dispenser not working but ice maker does


The water line freezes inside the freezer door. There is now an add-on water line heater you can install to thaw the line.

Water dispenser not working


2 possible problems.  
#1 water valve for the water side is stuck in the closed position.  Only way to tell is to pull the bottom kick panel out and look for the water line disconnect.  Separate the line, close the door and try to draw water through the dispenser.  If the water comes out of the disconnected line, then the water valve is good.
#2  if water is coming out of disconnected line, then the problem is in the freezer door.  There is a heater that keeps the water line from freezing inside the freezer door.  It is not repairable!!  The freezer door has to be replaced.
