Kenmore side by side 106.5912 water dispenser keeps dripping

Just installed new fridge and the water dispenser keeps dripping (a lot of water) after filling a glass. It stops dripping when the lever is released and then starts dripping after about 5 seconds. Owner's manual says to keep flushing the system which we have done for a while. Thanks!

check your water filter. water preasure is important in the operation of the water valves. if the filter is ok replace the valve. water filter should be changed at least once every year.

A common problem I see is people have the wrong kind of saddle valve on their water line. Make sure you don't have a self-piercing saddle valve. You should have a drill type saddle valve on the cold water line. Reason why, not enough water pressure to the water valve on the fridge. This will let the valve on the fridge hang slightly open which will cause a drip. Check this first. You will find info on this in the installation section of your owners manual.

SOURCE: 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?

A slow drip in water dispenser


This sounds like a sticking solenoid valve. When you depress the lever for you water dispenser it activates a valve, usually at the bottom back of the fridge. It might look something like this:

25380372-1h1xuof4er41rm4qkikzo3jl-4-0.jpg Sometimes they just burn out and stop working or the seal inside fails sometimes from particulates in the water. Some people put a pre-filter on the water hose that attaches to the fridge just in case. If you have a water filter inside your fridge this does not protect the solenoid. They are next to impossible to repair so a replacement is needed. Just go to Amazon or eReplacement parts and search for your fridge model number with the search terms "water dispenser solenoid". If you are mechanically inclined you can replace yourself or get an appliance tech to do it. It's a 15 minute job.

Water dispenser beep-beep


I am wondering about the hose you shoved in and the leak stopped. Is the hose you pushed in buckled where it hooks on or is there a buckled spot where the water comes out of the fridge. Just a guess.

Just installed a new Bosch fridge, ice dispenser dispenses ice but water does not dispense?


Make sure it has water on the container and no obstruction on the water dispenser. Try several times. Since it was new unit, sometimes water has not yet completely fill the dispenser tubing hence it will not dispense water.
Look for some carton, foam or plastic obstruction around the dispenser, it may cause hindrance of not flowing water from dispenser into the glass.
Thanks for asking.

Fridge will only dispense 6 cups at a time?


Some fridges have a safety feature built in, which turns off water if the water valve was open for a certain number of seconds, to avoid flooding. So if you need a lot of water, make sure to release water dispenser lever for a second or two every minute.

If the above is not the case, you may need to replace the water valve or a switch on the water dispenser.
The way to find out which part needs replacement is to check the voltage on the green water valve coil when the dispenser lever is pressed but it's not dispensing water. If 110v AC is present across the coil - replace valve. If there's no 100v AC - replace switch in the dispenser. Make sure to unplug the fridge before opening the dispenser.

Good luck!

Water dribbling out of dispencer whirlpool american fridgefreezer


Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out of it and see if you have a slow drip. Try the dispenser to see if it's just drips after use.

Water Dispenser Drips


Had the same problem after replacing over seven water valves and installing a water regulator in the water line to the refrigerator with no help. Had to reduce the water pressure to about 27 pounds the reduce most of the drips. It drips an amount about the size of a quarter and when the water gets the coldest it stops the drip, but there is always a droplet at the end of the water disperser tube.

The problem is with water stored in the refrigerator side of the box. Water come in and does not leak. After the water gets colder it expands and oozes drips from the water dispenser. It is worse with the roll of tubing behind the crisper drawer on the bottom, because there is no room for expansion in the tubing. We replaced the tubing with and older style tank and it helped some, but not completely. The solution is 1. Try to buy a refrigerator with a tank instead of the roll of tubing in the bottom of the refrigerator side. 2. Don't use the water dispenser. 3. Reroute the tubing directly to the water dispenser and bypass going into the refrigerator, the water will not be as cold. 4. Avoid those built by Whirlpool.
