Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

My Whirlpool ED22DQXEW01 Water Dispenser was working just fine, when one day it just stopped. I could hear humming so it was trying to dispense water, but nothing came out. The icemaker was still getting water and making ice just fine. After about a week or so all of a sudden the water started working again, but there's a ton of black sediment coming out now, after flushing it many times. Is this normal?

The humming noise is a defective coil that opens the water valve. When they weaken that begin to vibrate and hum because they don't have the strength to open the water valve. The replacement part number is 2188542. Let me know if you need any more help Sea Breeze

    If you would like to test the water control valve before replacing, disconnect the pair of wires on each side and use an OHM meter to test each side separately. Set your meter for OHM's and touch the probes to each coils male plug ends. Both should read the same amount of OHM's They are the same coils just different functions. To test the voltage coming to the dispenser coil place the probes into the female plug for the dispenser side and set the meter to AC voltage. Have someone press the dispenser button and you should get a reading of your household voltage of 120 volts AC depending on you location in the world or country. Let me know if you have any questions and thank you for rating me.

FGHB2844LF water dispenser not working


Turn the temp down on the refrigerator side but not below freezing. Some frigs have a "trap" set up for the water dispenser. its located behind a panel in the frig and it is there to help chill the water before it dispenses. if the frig setting is too cold then it can freeze the water .

Water dispenser quit.ice maker works fine you can hear motor hum when pressing water dispenser button


You should not hear the noise of a motor unless you are trying to dispense ice. Is that the case your ice dispensor is not working?

Water dispenser not working. Ice dispenser works


There should be a water filter inside the water lines to the water spout. This filter could be clogged, or the water lines themselves may still be somewhat frozen and not allowing flow to the dispenser itself.
You can also test the power to the dispensor to make sure it is drawing water. Can you hear the pump trying to pump water to dispenser? The water valve should also be opening. You can test power to the valve that draws in water from the external water lines.

Usually that is from the water line freezing up. Behind your refrigerator drawers there is either a plastic tank or a coil of plastic tube........That is where the water runs so your dispenser puts out chilled water. If your fridge gets too cold that will form ice inside and stop the water from flowing. You can defrost it with a hair dryer or just let the fridge sit open for a few hours. Another thing could be the water valve. When you press the water lever on the dispenser do you hear a noise? Kind of a humming noise. Well, that is your water valve, so if you hear it then it is probably working.

Water dispenser just quit putting out water one day whirlpool refriderator


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 does leave the door open till it thaws
OR
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.
