When you push on the lever (that normally should release water) .. does it click .. if it does then you have a stuck solonoid operated valve .. thats located at the bottom in the back of the refrigerator (behind a cardboard cover) .. there are two valves ganged together .. one is for ice the other for water .. you can try tapping on the valve assembly to see if you can free it .. if not then you have to replace it ..

now if operating the lever does not cause a click sound then you could have a bad or stuck switch (just behind the lever) .. a stuck valve is more common ..

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.
