If the water inlet valve is bad u will not get water to the ice maker or water at the door. The first thing u should do is to check and see if u have water coming to the back of fridge. You can do this by turning the water off. then take the water line loose on back of fridge. find a bucket and hold the water line in bucket and turn water back on. the water should come with force if it is working correctly. if it does then I would replace the water inlet valve. also make sure that your water filter is not restricted. they need to be replaced every 6 mos. they do clog after that much time

How do I stop water running into pan after toilet has been flushed &refilled.


If there is water still running into the toilet bowl, there is a problem with your flapper or flush valve. The most common problem, and least expensive to fix, is the flapper has gone bad and is allowing water to escape past it. Replace the flapper and the water should stop running. If not, it is possible the flush valve or one of the seals holding it to the tank has gone bad and needs replaced. Try replacing the whole flush valve. They come in a kit that includes the valve, flapper, and seals.

How do i tell if my water pump has gone bad


If the water pump was bad, the engine would be over heating. If the engine temp is normal, then the heater core could be clogged or the valve that opens the water flow to the heater core is not opening. You should be able to see if the valve is opening.

Water dispenser not working and icemaker not making ice


Make sure you have water to your inlet valve. If you do shutoff water to valve and have valve tested. Chances are the valve has gone bad since both water dispencer and icemaker cant get water.If you have any questions or this does not cure your problem please reply.

Ice dispensor not working


Most likely reason water not dispensing out door 1) You can turn up the temp in the freezer to see if it thaws in a couple of days, 2) Turn on the dispenser light and leave it on, will thaw the line and keep it thawed, 3) the water tank is frozen in the fresh food side (you can defrost with a blow drier) 6) the fill valve went bad or plugged ( power to fill valve but not opening) ($50) 7) Micro switch went bad in the dispenser for the water side 8) Door switch bad 9) Install a heater kit to thaw the line and it will keep it thawed ($35) PN#1381601 10) You can replace the whole door if insulation gone bad in door ( $500 to $800) 11) a broken wire to the fill valve ( no power to fill valve ) 12) with GE refrigerator bad dispenser boards or control boards ($400 and $150) 13) plugged, faulty or incorrectly installed water filter let me know more about you problem and I can help..

My water dispenser is running and will not stop.


Hi, There are 2 options that might be ha[[ening. Wither the water inlet valve has stuck open or the switch in the dispensor has gone bad.
Turn the water off to the inlet valve. Push the water dispenser button and see if you hear the inlet valve buzzing. Release the button and see if the valve stop buzzing. If the valve stops buzzing, the switch is ok. I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you later.

WATER TEMP CONTROL PROBLEM i have no cold cold wash rinse cycle,only hot cold and that rinses in hot


Hi, Sounds like the cold water side of the mixer valve has gone bad or has gotten plugged. Do you have cold water in the wash cycle?
Remove the hoses from the inlet valve and see if there is sand in the screens.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.
