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.

Certainly could be a pinched wire in the door panel. I would remove the panel and see if anything is pinched or being interfered with like the rinse dispenser solenoid.

Hot water coming out of refrigerator water dispenser


The only way hot water will come out of the dispenser is if the main house supplying the unit is tapped into the hot water line instead of the cold.

Warm water out of water dispenser


If this is a new hook-up please be sure that your water line is connected to the cold plumbing on the house and not the hot.
IF it is on the hot the fridge is cooling it down to warm.

Please let me know if this helps you.

My washmachine smells horrible. My whole house it starting to smell like it. What do I do??


there is nothing in a washer to smell - just stainless steel, rubber and plastics!
check the following:
are you using liquid detergent? if so after extended use, the machine smells like drains. put on the hottest wash with no clothes and smell will go. revert to using powder.
check there is a water barrier between the drain hose and your main drain. if not, the smell of your sewer will come up thro the drain hose.
is the drain connected to a spigot off the sink trap and do you have a waste disposal unit? these stink and unless you again have a water barrier the smell will come thro the drain hose

Ice and Water not dispensing. Light button not working


INSIDE THE DISPENSER ASSEMBLY IS A SEPARATE ELECTRONIC BOARD THAT CONTROLS THE DISPENSER.
OCCASIONALLY, THE DOOR SOLENOID OR THE CUBE ICE SOLENOID WILL SHORT OUT CAUSING A BURNOUT OF THE DISPENSER CONTROL BOARD. CHECK FOR A BURNT SMELL COMING FROM THE DISPENSER HOUSING. IF YOU SMELL IT, THE BOARD AND/OR SOLENOID NEED TO BE REPLACED.
