    Hi Vic,
    Thank you for your help! The valve continues to buzz so apparently the switch is ok. How diificult is it for me to install the water inlet valve myself? Do you suggest a repairman?
    I appreciate your assistance!

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.

    Joy, If the valve is buzzing even tho you are not pushing the dispenser lever, the dispenser switch is hanging up. If this is the case, you should have a repairman look at it. These dispensers can be very trying to get apart.

    Ok, I am sorry if it takes me a bit to answer. My gmail is not working and I have to find your response another way.

    Turn you water source back on and see ifd the water starts flowing even thos the lever is not pushed.

    The inlet valve is not very hard to change. If you will get me a model #. I could look up the valve # and give it to you.

    Here is the part# 2188542 and the cost is around $60.00.

    This is for model#ED25DQXAB00

    The number you gave me was a partial number. If you decide this is what you need and want, get me the whole number or go to www.repairclinic.com and type in the whole number. You cna find the rest of the number on a label in the fresh food section.

Howto repair refrigerator water dispenser


There is an electric water valve, usually at the lower back of the appliance which would appear to be stuck open and would need to be replaced OR the switch in the dispenser area is stuck in the closed position. Try disconnecting the wiring to the valve and if that stops it then most likely the dispenser switch is defective, If not then the valve is likely stuck open. There should also be a small valve in the water supply line, under a sink or etc. that you can shut off to stop the water flow with until you get the other problem daiagnosed and fixed.

Ice dispenser stuck on


Either the paddle for the ice/water dispenser is stuck or you have a bad microswitch behind the dispenser.
To stop the ice/water from dispensing open the freezer door and press or hold the child lock button down. Once the unit is in child lock mode you can shut the door without energizing the dispenser.
Another option is to remove the upper freezer door hinge cover and disconnect the wire connector up there. This will remove voltage from the dispenser as well. Then either replace the paddle or switch. Sometimes the paddles/switches will get stuck because of splash up from ice dropping in sugary drinks.

Water would not stop running into icemaker, now


The water inlet valve(where the water supply connects to the back) may have been staying open and now has burned so it don't work at all. . You can swap the wires on the dual water inlet valve and disconnect the water line at the valve which goes to the ice maker. When you try the water dispenser the water will come out there. When you stop the water dispenser, if the water at the valve doesn't stop, the valve isn't closing so you'll need to replace it.

Water dispenser doesn't work


Replace the water valve on the refrigerator. The valve solenoid is stuck open causing water to flow freely. This should fix both issues with icemaker fill tube freezing and water dispensing.

I have a 12 year old Whirlpool side-by-side refridgerator (ed20db) with water and ice dispenser. I have not used the water dispenser for years, but for some reason when I hit the lever yesterday, it did...


you have a possible water valve that is not shutting off all the way on the water dispensing side, it has 2 coils, one for ice and one for water. the other possibility is the dispenser tank is frozen, from being too cold in the refr. section and thats causing water pressure to continue running even when not pushing the lever. let the unit warm up slighty on the refr side and see if you can get water to flow properly.
if not working after warming up, then you might have to replace the water inlet valve.
