Water dispenser drips


The water inlet valve needs replacing. It's located in the rear of the refrigerator and can be accessed by removing the cover (either cardboard or metal). The water line is attached to the water inlet valve. You can order the part online or purchase one from a local dealer.

My "Whirlpool Gold" Refrigerator's interior water dispenser was dripping pretty badly. I just replaced the inlet valve and the drip is MUCH slower but it's still there (1 drip every ~10 minutes). Wha


Perhaps some air bubbles were trapped in the water line during the repair. Try running water thru the line for a good amount of time and that may help to relieve the line of any air bubbles.

Door dispenser drips


I am assuming when you say the door dispenser drips, that you mean the water dispenser. I had the same problem with my Samsung fridge Freezer, it just turned out to be that the water pressure from the tap supplying the dispenser was turned up too high, the advice I was given (from an engineer) was to turn down the pressure a little then run the dispenser for approx half a litre, then let it sit for a while to see if the drip continues, if it does, try again, it took a few adjustments but we're running fine now, but don't forget, it's normal for a dispenser to drip once or twice after its use. Good luck.

Inside water dispenser pumps water out really slowly on GE Profile PFS22MISBBB


It is possible that your water filters are getting plugged. Have you changed any filters lately?
The meat pan lever may also be turned to the coldest position and on units that have a low water usage, this will also cause the tank to freeze. You will want to lower the meat drawer setting or use more water from the door. This does not apply to Top Mount water dispenser models, because they do not have a reservoir. Problem requiring service, glass fill time.

  • Dispenser drips water constantly will be a water valve problem, and should be checked by a service technician. If you would like to schedule a service appointment, please contact GE Consumer Service at 1-800-432-2737 or schedule a service appointment on-line.


  • Dribble as defined as a small amount of water (few drops) that may miss the glass ONLY AFTER USAGE. This is due to a delay in the overall system.

    Dribble can be minimized by the following actions:

    - Purge the tank, by holding down the dispenser for 2 to 3 minutes, to remove any trapped air that may be building pressure and causing the dribble.
    - A few drops is normal, but you can also prevent water from missing the glass and dripping down the cradle area by moving glass slower when removing it from the cradle.
    - You may need to periodically empty the recess grill and clean out underneath it to prevent overfilling and water dripping down the front of the refrigerator.


  • Also, remember the dispenser in the door will not operate unless the door is closed

    Tub leaks, with a partially filled tub (2.5 inches measured from the lowest point over the pump assembly.) Promblem occured after the washer was idle for 3 weeks. Have just replaced the main water inlet...


    I am assuming leaking when it is running, not sitting idle. Leaking from the door? Fill and run unit for 1 minute with no detergent. Open door. Are suds present? Suds turn into water when they drop to the floor. Suds can flow over the lip of the tub and drip to the floor. Oversudsing, Sometimes old detergent breakdown. Rinse aid dispenser leaking will cause oversudsing. Combination of all in one products will cause many problems. If suds are present after running unit a minute, pour a cup of cooking oil in unit. Run and fill it a few times until suds are gone. Possible most common cause is dispenser latch grommet.

    Our subzero freezer has a new problem. The cubes


    Ice cubes WILL BE slightly moist when they land in the ice bucket. they've just been slightly melted in order to eject from the ice maker. Stop playing with the settings, for starters. put them back to normal, i.e., middle setting, place thermometer in center of freezer, and if you can, one in center of fresh food. monitor after 24 hours, and for the next three days thereafter. freezer temps should be in the -5 - +5°F, sometimes up to 10°, fresh food should be 35-40, sometimes up to 44°at the normal settings. If you are not having temperature issues, see if you notice any frozen drips of water on the underside of icemaker, indicating a possible crack in the ice maker mold, or a faulty water valve. You didnt include your model and serial number, so not knowing the path of the ice shoot, some go out the freezer door, some slide over and get dispensed from the fresh food side. Its possible you may have a problem instead with the flapping door that opens to allow ice cubes to be dispensed, or similar type mechanism. If this door does not seat completely when its closed, it will leak warm air directly into the ice bucket, which would make them slightly moist, also too, this warm air can cause frost and ice to buildup near the warm air source...look for any unusual forms of ice and or frost leading up from the flapping door to the ice bucket. Also look for any gaps in the door gasket when closed, this warm air leak can also cause similar problems, but its most likely with the ice door. could be the door, the spring, the solenoid, or something else i wouldn't know without personal refrigerator inspection.

    It makes no ice cubes, but water still comes through door dispenser. Why? There appears to be no water getting to the ice making mechanism, however water is still coming out the door dispenser.


    Is the freezer cold enough? Should be close to 10 degrees.
    Is there water or ice in the ice mold? If not put water in it and see if it dumps the ice after it’s frozen. If there is ice, lift the cut off arm and let it drop to see if it will start.
    If it does dump the ice but don’t refill with water.
    Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

    The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

    I have a leaky spigot what can I do


    If the spigot means the end of the water tube in the water dispenser, and it steadily drips even if the dispenser is not used for 10 minutes or so - replace the water valve. If the dispenser drips water mostly wright after you used it - you might have some air bubbles in the refrigerator water tubing.

    Built in water dispenser drips/leaks (fridge model


    It is very possible that the water control valve on the rear of your refrigerator needs replaced. It would also be a good idea to install a pre-filter before the water gets to the water control valve. I believe the side of the valve that controls the water dispenser is stuck open slightly allowing water to drip. You can test by disconnecting the wires to the dispenser side and see if the drip stops. When you press dispense water the dual water control valve opens completely on the rear for the water to flow. If the seal inside is defective it will leak. Here are a couple places to finds the Dual Water control Valve

    Whirlpool side-by-side refrigerator - 2 problems


    I would suggest that you get a certified person to come out and look at it you very well could have bent the doors in the move.

    but... if you want to do it yourself.
    click here for a walkthrough

    for your drip:
    Flush air from the water system the first time it is used and after replacing the filter. Air trapped in the water line or filter may slowly travel through the coiled water reservoir to the dispenser, pushing any water ahead of it. This can cause the dispenser to drip. Water needs to completely fill the lines for all air to be cleared.
    • Use a sturdy container to press and hold the water dispenser bar for 5 seconds, then release it for 5 seconds. Repeat until the water begins to flow. Once the water begins to flow, continue pressing and releasing the dispenser bar (5 seconds on, 5 seconds off) for an additional 2 minutes. Repeat if dripping starts again because air can re-enter from the water supply.
    • As air is cleared from the system, water may spurt from the water dispenser.
    • Make sure the refrigerator is connected to a cold water supply.
    One or two drops of water immediately after dispensing is normal. It may be necessary to hold the container under the dispenser for 2 to 3 seconds after releasing the dispenser lever.
