I have gsc23KSTA and water are always on the bottom of the dispenser. Any suggestions?

Hello Joe;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service technician. I live in Baltimore, Maryland, USA., so the units will be in English not Metric.

There are several areas that need to be checked:

1.) In the top of the dispenser behind the frame your may have a drip proof tube. This is about a 1/4" diameter plastic tube with a bulb to collect drips. Sometimes the bulb cracks and leaks. This tube is replaceable, but should only be replaced by a skilled technician.

2.) OK, lets assume this is not the problem. So, lets look at the water dispenser solenoid valve. The spool in the valve collects calcium or particles from the water supply and does not completely seat, or the valve screen becomes plugged and you do not have enough water pressure to close the valve. This valve is behind the unit. After removing the lower back cover you will see two solenoid valves. The valve with the smaller plastic tubing feeds your ice maker, and the valve with the larger diameter plastic tube is your water dispenser water line. This you can replace your self if you are handy.

3.) You may have lost line pressure. It is not uncommon for the water shut off valve to deteriorate. The valve seat can become clogged restricting the supply water pressure. You need at least 60 PSI (Pounds Per Square Inch) to seat the valve.

Now, where is the problem?

If you have small ice cubes and a slow water flow you need to replace the water supply shut off valve.

If your ice cubes are normal size you do not have a water shut off valve problem and need to replace the water solenoid valve. If you are handy you can do this yourself.

This is based on a assumption you do not have a leak at the water bulb area on your plastic fill tube.

Water dispenser leaking dispenses ok, but does not always shut off fully resulting in a slow drip. Like a dripping tap might be just a washer?

you have a faulty water valved solenoid. when you actuate the water lever, the solenoid opens, to allow water flow, then closes to stop it. When you continue to get a dripping before or after, its because the solenoid is not closing completely. Only resolution is to replace the water valve.

Very slow drip from water dispenser. How do I fix

Good day,
A slow continues drip, but still dispenses O.K. is caused by the dual water valve on the bottom rear of the machine not closing completely.
Only fix is replacing the water valve assembly.

The water dispenser is dripping and won't stop. How to fix

Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out of it and see if you have a slow drip. Try the dispenser to see if it's just drips after use.

Toto flapper seems ok but toilet keeps slow trickle into the bowl

The water inlet valve should close completely and stop water from coming into the tank before the water level reaches the "small tube." (This is the overflow tube.)

There may be an o-ring or rubber gasket inside the valve that can be replaced. If not, you would have to replace the water inlet valve.

Whirlpool GR2FHTXVQ00 fridge. Water dispenser

The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.
The valve can leak because of sediment in the water preventing it from closing or low water pressure.

You can thaw out the fill tube and replace the inlet valves.

Our KitchenAid just started leaking. it is coming from the front ice dispenser on door. seems many people are having this problem. there is also "snow" on ice maker and bucket. and the temperature...

Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out of it and see if you have a slow drip. Try the dispenser to see if it's just drips after use.

The excess frost on the ice maker and bucket can be caused by the ice chute door not closing all the way or a leaky door gasket letting air in.

Water Dispencer switch is very slow to close off.

The problem may be in the electric valve in back of the refrigerator that supplies the water to the door dispenser. A small particle maybe lodged on the seat of the valve causing the slow closing and dripping. Replacing the water valve assembly may solve your problem. I would also recommend installing an in line water filter before the entrance to the valve.

Water dispenser dripping

Your house valve may not be totally closed (bad seal or something) letting a small bit of water through. Disconnect the line to the fridge completely (in the back) to be sure. That way even if the fridge solenoid valve is bad AND the house valve is bad you won't get dripping. If you know the valve is good, there are times when the water filter will have air trapped in it letting the water in the line drip out slowly until it's finally empty. Pull any filters you have also.
