Question about Electrolux 25.9 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Thru-the-Door Ice and Water - Stainless-Steel
I have a four year old frigidaire with ice and water dispenser and filter made by Electrolux. The water dispenser is leaking/dripping water after use and when filling ice maker. It appears to have started since we last replaced filter. We seem to replace a filter every four months. Do you think that I could fix this by replacing the valve on the bottom back where the water line is hooked up? Thanks. I am happy to order the part from you.
Sorry to hear that you are having problems with your Frigidaire.
Filters may cause leaks but hardly from the water dispenser. So, replacing the filter will not help (At least I don't think it will). According to my five years experience on this kind of appliances, the leak may be caused by:
1. Excessive OR low water pressure. When the pressure from the water installation is too high, the water valve may no be able to stop it.
2. Low water pressure may cause leaks too. The water valve uses the pressure itself from the water to shut down the supply.
3. Foreign objects coming from the water supply may avoid the water valve to close and seal the supply.
So, as you can see, all above points to a problem with the water valve. As your appliance is about four year old, I believe replacing the water valve will be the best solution.
If you want to be sure that the valve is having leaks, you can turn off the ice-maker, label the plastic tubes, and disconnect the plastic tubes (from the valve, not the water line) and place it over a bucket or something to hold the water. Activate the water dispenser just for a few seconds and watch if the water stops when the dispenser is released.
If water stops completely when releasing the dispenser, then there is an issue with the water line inside the fridge. If not, is better to get a new water valve instead of having a pool in your kitchen some day.
For parts or assistance about problems with your appliance, you can contact frigidaire at 1 (800) 374-4432 or (706) 860 4110
Hope this information helps, good luck!

If it started after you replaced the filter, then that is where the problem lies. So, please unscrew the filter, check its washers and replace it. And tight this time. Do not over tighten it, else you may break something. No part are required for this operation. Only a little time and patience. Water is precious (and getting scarce), DO NOT WASTE ANY.

Tips for a great answer:
I appreciate your inquiry, bela_desousa!
From the information you have provided the water dispenser on your Frigidaire refrigerator is not dispensing. Have you recently changed your water filter? If you water filter has not been changed and is dirty or clogged it could lead to potential failure of your water dispenser. If the filter has been changed it could be a faulty dispenser. I would suggest consulting with a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt
