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.

Just replaced old softner w/new whirlpool 40,000. Hooked up correctly, regenerated w/ 6 tblsp bleach before use, tested/set hardness, Water is not soft....why?


Is the "bypass valve" in the correct position. I would suggest flushing the water heater at the boiler drain, bottom of tank to assure soft water in WH. Make sure there is salt in brine tank and manually regenerate the softener 3 days in a row. Retest water.

Try running dome bleach through the dispenser. Might have a build up in the outlet line, after the filter.

The water smells in my hot water dispenser


There usually is an anode rod in a water heater that is there to attract the lime from the water. This helps prevent lime build up in the bottom of the tank and makes it last longer. However, the downside of this is the sulfur smell that comes as a result of the anodization (chemical) process. You could remove the rod and plug the hole in the heater to eliminate the smell. You'd give up some length of service as a result.

Whirlpool ED22PE refrigerator in-door water dispenser very slow


remove the saddle clamp that some idiot put on the supply line under your sink and splice in a real "T" with a real cutoff. hopefully the saddle clamp is past your main valve and not before it or you'll have to turn off all your water first.

Kenmore/Sears 417.43142200 bleach dispenser not dispensing


Before you do anything, make sure that the plastic part in the bleach dispenser container is pushed in. Fill with bleach to the "max" line, written on the plastic part. Start the wash cycle and make sure that water goes into the bleach dispenser. Once water flows into the dispenser, the bleach/water mixture rises and should automatically dispense into the washer. We had this same problem. We removed the dispenser unit and took it to the sink. We then filled it with water and it started coming out from the bottom automatically. So sort of suction is caused from the amount of water and it starts to flow. Basically, you aren't adding enough bleach into the dispenser if the water flows into it as the wash cycle runs.

No water flow to ice maker


Two possible answers on this one. The water control valve for the ice maker is defective or the switches inside the front of ice maker are stuck.
