Leaking pure source 2 ice and water filter


Hi-

Three things

  • Water supply valve may not be completely open.
    Open valve completely.
  • Water supply valve may be blocked by foreign material or may not be large enough.
    Supply valve must have a 1/4" opening for water to fully supply ice maker. Many self-piercing valves do not have this big of an opening. Replace water supply valve with one that has a 1/4" opening.
  • Water filter may need changing.
    If equipped with a water filter, replace filter canister or cartridge.
Hope this help

Thanks for using Fixya!

Samsung front load washing machine, WF42H5200AF, less than 4 months old giving code 4e when warm or hot temperature is pushed. Can only wash in eco warm or cold. I have drained and cleaned out to front...


Error code 4E is a water supply error.
Check the following:
  • Foreign material is entering the water supply valve.
  • The water supply valve terminal is not connected.
    (Wire disconnected)
  • The warm water and rinse connectors are wrongly connected to each other.
  • This occurs if the PCB terminal from the drain hose to the
    detergent drawer is not connected. Check whether the transparent hose is folded or torn.
Possible Parts Affected are:
  • Water supply Valve
  • Main PCB
  • Obstruction of the water line.
To Check the water supply:
Check the resistance for the water supply valve. Resistance: 0.9~1.1k? between the terminals of the water supply valve

Electrolux Pure advantage water filter


Open and shut the water valve quickly to verify the water supply, it could be a bad water supply valve. Bench test the filters for flow or obstruction.

Why does my washer start with a forcful stream and then cut doyn to minimum flow ?


Check for kinked or clogged water supply hoses(s). Be sure to make sure that if there is a screen-like filter in the supply hoses or at the inlet on the wash machine, that it is clear.

Shut the water supply off. Start the washer to fill on warm wash / rinse to relieve the water pressure in the hose. Shut off the washer. Unscrew the hose connection from the washer and direct both hoses into the washer tub (or other container). Turn the water supply on. Both hoses should discharge water evenly and forcefully, then shut the water off. If the flow was uneven, slow or poor - clear obstructions in / or replace the hose(s). Next, inspect the water inlet on the washer. Clear any obstructions, dirt, etc. Reconnect the hoses and try again. If flow is still lacking, there may be obstructions in water lines or valves INSIDE the machine.

I hope this helps - please rate my reply. Thanks.

Water overflows from icemaker & freezes in the freezer. Makes three ice cubes in a day & the water is extremely slow to fill glass from freezer door!


If both the water in door and ice maker are experienceing slow water problems the common point is the water supply itself.

This can be caused by:
1. Water supply shut off valve is partially closed or blocked with debris.
a. TURN water supply OFF
b. Remove the water line from the rear of the refrigerator ABOVE the in line filter (if one is installed)
c. Place the removed line into a bucket.
d. Turn on water supply and check flow. It should fill an 8 Oz glass in about 8 seconds.
If it passes this test then the water supply is fine. If it FAILS this test either cflear the obstruction in the line or replace the water supply valve from the house connection.

Test 2 (Water supply is OK
Reconnect water supply to external in-line filter (If installed) or water valve assy connection.
Your unit has a Verticle filter that if it is clogged will cause slow water flow.
Test water thru the door for the same amount of water flow. It should fill an 8 Oz glass in 10 seconds or less.
If it does ot do this then the VERTICAL internal water filter is clogged. (5 months or 500 Gallon change interval)
REPLACEMENT filter is PN LT500P but there are several like / suitable aftermarket replacements for the LT500P number.

As for the ice maker freezing up. There is only one cause for this and that is the water valve assy itself is bypassing water when it is supposed to be closed. The only remedy for this is to replace the water valve. They are not repairable.
The valve is available through sears parts direct:

Ge profile arctica side by side- ice maker and water dispenser not working..have already replaced the water filter


The water dispenser and the icemaker both operate on different soleniods on the water valve so the chances of a bad valve are slim. I would assume you issue is in your water supply. The easiest thing you could try first would be to check your saddle valve that taps into your main water line to supply the ref. They are known for calcium deposits which obstruct the flow of water. This issue is IDed by very slow water pressure through th door. If its gunked your icemaker fill tube may also be frozen.

Water is not being dispensed. PLEASE HELP !!!!


HI. First, you will need to rule out any standard issues that will cause this. Check the internal, and external feed lines for any obstructions. Make sure that the internal lines are not frozen, or kinked. If the lines check out ok, move on to the water filter(if equipped).

In most units, there will be a filter, present. These devices are set to operate on a particular time frame. If their filtering limit is met, the filter will stop filtering water, thus, not allowing the fluid to flow, at all. Make sure that the filter is up to date. If you have verified that the filter is ok, move on to the water inlet valve assembly.


The water inlet valve is located behind your refrigerator. Find the water supply line coming into the valve and turn it off at the source (typically under the sink). Disconnect the supply line. Remove the screws that secure the inlet valve in place.

The water inlet valve is connected by two wires. Label the wire placement on the water inlet valve before disconnecting the wires. The wires are connected to the terminals with slip on connectors

Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If the connectors are corroded they should be replaced.

Inspect the filter screen where the supply line connects. Remove any debris or deposits that may have built up using a toothbrush, or warm running water. If you cannot clear the clog, it will be necessary to replace the valve (the filter is not removable on most inlet valves).


Test the water inlet valve for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X100 (if available, otherwise use the nearest ohm setting). Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should display a reading of 200 to 500 ohms. Close inspection of the inlet valve and especially the coil may reveal the exact ohm resistance rating to test for. If the water inlet valve does not pass this test, it should be replaced.

WATER DISPENSER NOT WORKING


It might be that you have a restriction at the water supply line serving the fridge. Check it for good flow (have bucket and towels handy!) If supply line is good, then move onto the fridge to check the water inlet valve(s). as newer models have 2 or 3 inlet valves, a main water valve for the entire unit, and possibly one each for the ice maker and water dispenser past the main inlet valve (solinoid).

You can check these by simply shutting off the main supply to the fridge from the house water line 1st, and then removing each water line from the supply side of the fridge and seeing if you have water flow from the house to the valve side. If you do, then reconnect the lines to the fridge valves and see if you can get water flowing to the other side of the solinoid/valve when you have someone try to get a glass of water from the water dispenser, etc.

It is possible that there is an obstruction in the lines, by not very likely. Normally it is a failed water valve(s) (solinoid) that causes low flow or complete loss of flow, especially if you've changed the fridge water filter or replaced it with the "cap" which eliminates filtering of the water.

It is that you'll likely have to replace at least one, maybe more, of the fridge inlet water valves. If you have the time, try to zero in on the failed one by bypassing each, one at a time, until you get water flow. That way, you'll only have to purchase just the replacement valve needed to get things working again.
