Yes, pull refrig out from wall, remove cover on rear portion bottom of frig, follow water inlet line to where water valve is located. Be sure to turn refrig and water off before working on unit. Replace water valve, available at most appliance parts stores

Why is the water dispenser constantly dripping?


If the water is coming from the water dispenser itself then most likely you have a water valve that bis going bad and it will only get worse.

Frigidaire water dispenser drips constantly. I have been told there is a main water valve and a second valve for the water dispenser. Where is it and how to replace?


if you are referring to the cold water on the door , then there is a solenoid valve on the bottom back left side of fridge, you will see two there , one is for ice maker and one is for water on door , most times it's a good idea to replace both of them , also there should be a filter inside fridge on bottom middle (cartridge) this should be changed monthly to maintain fresh taste and keep foreign objects out of tubes

My Kenmore side by side fridge #596.55669500 is leaking through the water outlet in the door. Not constantly but often enough to be a problem. What could cause this and is it something I can repair myself?


If its dripping water mostly after using Changing the water solenoid in the back will fix the problem, Thats the blue valve on the back that is connected to the water supply line.
If its turning on intermittently and dispensing water you may have to replace the control board for the dispenser.
Its either hard water causing the fill valve(Solenoid) to not close all the way or an electrical current opening the valve .

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.

Water dripping from the water service


There are 2 possibilties. the most commom is if you have just replaced the filter trapped air will cause a  drip like youve described run about 1 gallon thru the dispenser to purge all air.
the next possiblity is a bad solenoid valve this is located behind the refrig in the compressor compartment. there are 2 sets of valves i reccomned replacing both sets at the smae time. these are model specific and can be ordered thru maytag or you can find them at a number of places online thx peyton...

The water dispencer dribbles the water out.


The water hose coil is to chill the drinking water coming out of the dispenser. If the water drips out it could be a bad solenoid valve since the water dispenser requires power to dispenser water. If the Ice maker is working fine then check the dispenser water solenoid 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.
