Whirlpool Side by Side Ref. water will not shut off in door

Just pulled ref. out of storage, hooked up water, and the water is continuously running, like I've put a glass under it and am pushing on the lever, but I'm not. Help!

Re: Whirlpool Side by Side Ref. water will not shut off...

The lever is activated by a switch that opens the valve when you push it with a glass. The switch and/or the solenoid is the problem. as it was just taken out of storage, look at the switch behind the glass lever. You may be able to un-stick it by hand.

Where do I direct the hot air from an hair dryer to thaw out the water line in my hotpoint side by side refrigerator ?

Hotpoint ref.
made by GE
There is 2 different place they freeze up inside door water line for cold water dispenser & water feed to ice maker.
for cold water disp. Water line depends on model # will start at bottom of door loop over the disp. control and back down from top of control to cup area to defrost this line best way is to shut down ref and leave door on freezer open can take up to 12 hours.
taking door apart is a major project.
If its your ice maker fill tube easy fix turn water supply off.
on back of ref. there is a water line going up to the top of freezer
this tube will pull out from back the whole fill tube will come out
take to sink thaw with warm water replace tube You may need some caulk to seal area tube meet ref.

Water dispence slow

do you know if it is a whirlpool made model, 27ft french door, ice maker in ceiling, they had issues with a seal between ice compartment and ref side- leaks freezing air to water tank area, freezing tank. other wise if its not the filter -then water flow to unit. ck where it connects to ref, if good( should have steady stream with press. replace ref valve if bad look at your valve in wall or at sink.

Water does not come out of door. I can hear the click and the ice is working on the other side so it is getting water.

check your water tank in the ref. looking under the veg. drawers. there it should be on the back of ref. if no water than your solenoird in back of ref. might be bad. there is two one for ice maker one for water.. ok

How do i remove water filter under the side by side refrigerator

filter should be removede by turning filter counter clockwise,as if "unscrewing",so to need to shut off water or anything,just unscrew-tip:might be easier to remove by removing ref. grill. ref. grill removes easier by doing this w/ both doors open

I have a whirlpool ref side by side the water

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

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.

No ice or water from in-door dispenser

When you first hook water up to the refrigerator you have to fill a tank in the fridge. Open the water supply behind the ref. turn the control on the front of the ref to water and hold a glass under the spout as if you are filling a glass . You may have to wait 3-4 minutes forthe tank and lines to fill with water before you get any to come out into the glass. The water my be discolored at first so run a few glass full through before drinking . hope this helps

Whirlpool S/S Ref with Ice in Door - Mod # ED5FHEXMQ

Most fridges run a defrost cycle 2 or 3 times a day. When this is happening a normal pop and sizzle sound will be heard. Otherwise I will need more information. Ice makers need to be cold enough to dispense ice, but not to fill. If yours will not fill, it may be the water filter.
