Water dispenser slowly leaking

Can someone please confirm my approach on this? Assuming the switch is connecting properly, I think the valve that turns the water on and off is slowly breaking down.

Why won't the water come out of the in-door water dispenser? Why won't my ice maker make ice?


Be thoughtful of any water leaks. Water leaking beneath the machine will damage floors.

If both the ice maker and water dispenser are not working it is likely the feed connection from the wall to the unit. The hose/ copper tube can get kinked or the valve at the connection at the wall internally plugged. Close off the water at the wall and using a catch remove the connection at the unit open the valve at the wall and confirm the that water flows freely through.

Check the filter of the water located usually at the front grill near the floor. If the filter is removed the water connection will buipass the filter.

It is not likely with both the ice maker and water dispensor that both electrical solenoid valves have failed.

My water dispenser in the door is leaking water from behind the lever whenever it is pressed


Hi Daniel Roland - There are many reason for this issue to occur, for example the refrigerator could have a crack in the defrost pan, a defrost drain line blockage, a leak from the water supply line for the ice maker, but most cases water leaking inside and draining through the refrigerator cabinet. Try confirming that the vales are tightened. If the connection is still leaking, turn of the water supply line to the water valve and take the connection apart. You can try using Teflon tape when retightening the connection to ensure a good seal. Should this suggestion prove to be ineffective contact a professional to properly diagnose and repair the refrigerator a good seal.

My Amana ASD2625KEB is making a jackhammer sound when I use the water


Sounds like the=> 67006531 Dual Water Control Valve has become weak and when trying to remain open so the water will flow to the water dispenser has began to vibrate and cause this noise. Usally when this happens the water control valve is failing and most times will stop working. Pull refrigerator away from wall and have someone feel the control valve while someone else presses the dispense water switch to confirm that the valve is shaking before replacing. Anyway this is the part number=> 67006531 for your model ASD2625KEB

Water does not stop pouring from water/ice dispenser. Door-to-door GE Profile Refrigerator Model TFX22PPDACC. How to troubleshoot the problem? Or what part need to be replaced?


With the water running tube/pipe is cracked in between or its got loose from its fitting.First inspect the line for this problem.The tube from which water passes, one end is connected to the water valve at the back base of refrigerator.And then from valve two tube runs.One tube is for water dispenser and another tube is for ice chamber filling.Follow that tube from back of the refrigerator.The water dispenser tube That passes through the freezer door also.And the ice maker tube.That connects to the back of ice maker tray.The water fills in the tray.See if that tube is got loose and its not throwing water out instead of ice maker tray.Many a times this happens.--- May be you need to remove the ice maker to get exact location for tube setting and position.----------- But if tubes from water and ice dispenser sections are fitted properly and then there can be crack in the tube.------------But if tubes checked out ok then other possibility can be faulty water fill grommet.------- The grommet is cracked.And that is causing the leak.--------- Go to the back of the unit and remove the cover at the lower right of the unit. This is where the water line goes into your unit. Remove the water line at the solinoid that goes to your ice maker . This will allow you enough slack to remove the old water fill tube and replace it with the new one.
You need to push the white retainers in to release the tubeing from the solenoids.
------------
The part you need is called fill tube grommet.It has to be removed and replaced.The tube is connected to the grommet. Click this link below for more help:---http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2011/06/how-to-remove-ice-maker-fill-tube-from.html
------------ The other possibility for this leak, is water valve.The water valve close and open.When its open, it lets water to the tube.When it closes it stops water.But if the valve is not closing then it will let the water to enter non stop, slowly --- slowly the inside tube getw over filled and then starts leaking.------------ The water valve is not required as per the problem.But if after doing all the repairing, still the same problem, noticed then water valve is required.Because is water valve is not closing properly, then it leaks some water, (drop by drop) and this can cause water to collect in the grommet and this gets formed into ice and the same leaking repeats.---------but at present dont buy water valve.Just keep an eye on this same problem.sometimes leaking will start after few days.In that case also replace water vale.------- Now for other parts, that are extension hose,icemaker tube and clamp.Out of this you will require clamps, sometimes while removing old tube the clamp gets cracked.you can buy this.The extension hose is required if the tube is getting short or actual hose is cracked in between.i dont think you will require extension hose at present.And for ice maker tube.This tube can also be cracked and cause leak.this tubes by time gets bit swollen and loose its grip.Its actually not required.But if you still replace it, that it will be good.--------so you can order clamp and icemaker tube with the grommet part.----------- The parts which you want to order, this is direct link for parts:-- 1. Dual Inlet Water Valve------------ (http://www.partselect.com/PS901314-GE-WR57X10051-Dual-Inlet-Water-Valve.htm)
2. Icemaker Water Line ----------
(http://www.partselect.com/PS299643-GE-WR2X9245-Icemaker-Water-Line.htm)
3. Icemaker Fill Hose Extension ----------
(http://www.partselect.com/PS298725-GE-WR2X7927-Icemaker-Fill-Hose-Extension.htm)


A fill tube clamp for the fill tube grommet----------------
(http://www.partselect.com/PS297951-GE-WR2X4754-Fill-Tube-Clamp.htm) ----------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

The water dispenser keeps leaking even when we are not using it


Hello, if it just leaking slowly check the filter if the filter is fine replace the water valve. If the water will not stop running out like you were pressing the water button replace the switch behind the dispenser.

Water dispenser for Amana Side By Side regridgerator not working. Water is flowing into the unit b/c ice dispenser is working. What are main potential issues to look at on the water dispenser?


when pressing in on the water dispenser you should hear a clicking sound from a micro switch being activated. if you hear the micro switch clicking ok then you'll have to disconnect the water at various points and retry to see which locations the where water is coming out and where it is not. Trial and error approach to narrow down the problem location. usually either a bad water valve or a freeze up in the water line somewhere. assuming water is working to icemaker.

Connected water supply and confirmed good water pressure. cannot get water to dispense or icemaker to make ice.


Hi, When you push the water switch in the door, do you the inlet valve humming? Is it possible that the wires came off the inlet valve?
If you remove the inlet valve from the cabinet and unhook the large size tubing that leads to the water dispenser, you can engage the dispenser lever in the door and see if water comes out.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist yyou further.
