Yout water dispenser is contaminated with mold. This is a potentially dangerous situation.

I would definitely contact the appliance store and tell them what is going on.

I have a GE refrigerator with ice and water dispenser. At times a stringy, slimy substance will pass through the water dispenser. I have changed filters, but it still happens . Any thoughts?


Inside the refrigerator is a coil of plastic tubing. It's purpose is to chill the water for the dispenser. The only way to clean this is to run a lot of water through it. I use a gallon container and fill it several times. If you get the same condition in your ice, then I'd install an external water filter in the water line behind the refrigerator.

My whirlpool GS6NBEXR refrigerator ice cube maker leaves slimey, flaky residue at the bottom of my glass. What can I do?


Diana, if I understand you ok, the ice you put in the glass leaves slimy residue. So that slimy stuff has to be in the ice cube. Well remove the the ice maker unit and thoroughly clean this ice holder and throw away the ice cubes in the kitchen sink and see if leaves slimy stuff. As for slimy stuff, while the unit is out, check any leaks etc. BTW any smell?

How to clean water tank as water dispenses with some black stuff


If you look up inside you will mold around the spout. this is were your black stuff is coming from. THe water system is completly sealed and cant be cleaned. However you can flush it. Use a cleaner with bleach in it to remove the mold from dispenser. You also may need to change the chute door . It leaking air is where the mold came from. Ihope this helps.

Water is not getting to my icemaker...I swapped the solenoids and pressed water dispenser on door and now i get water to icemaker...not sure what that is telling me is bad


You swapped the solenoid's wires. Switch the wires back.
It means the ice detect lever is up or broken on the ice maker.
See the article on ice makers at How stuff works.com

Kenmore s/s f/f; ice dispenser working; water dispenser not


If you can't hear the solenoid on the water inlet valve(it's on the back where the water supply hooks up) when you try the water then the water switch on the dispenser is at fault.

If you do hear it Your water line could be frozen in the door. 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 doesleave the door open till it thaws.

If it doesn't come out there disconnect it at the water inlet valve and see if it comes out there.

My Kenmore side by side unit leaks water onto the floor and the water dispenser has stopped working. When I hit the dispense switch I hear water squirting.


Probably the plastic tube that came from the solenoid is broken somewhere between the solenoid and the dispenser(usually under the refrigerator).

Kenmore Refrigerator stopped dispensing water


Either your water tank in the fridge froze up, the waterline that goes up the freezer door from the bottom hinge froze, or the switch that your glass hits is damaged. Do you hear any humming or noises when you put your glass up to get water?
