More than likly the solinoid is damaged, turn off the water and power and remove it, once removed you can turn the power back on while you go and find a new one. leave the water off until the new one is installed and turn the power off while you fit the new one. Turn on water, check for leaks, turn on power check for leaks again.

Before you pay for a new solinoid ask the parts guy to test your old part. If this is not the problem is has to be a problem with the electric switch attached to the water dispencer handle.

The solinoid is a double one side controls the ice the other cold water to the door, mark the two wire terminals so you can put them back. ( check you didnt loosen one of the wires when changing the filter - stranger things have happened ) solinoid is located at the end of the water line from the wall, just behind the cardboard at the bottom of the fridge, it should have two water lines and two power terminals attached.

Refrigerator dispenses ice, but does not dispense water?


Unfortunately, the housing that the water filter fits into is also the housing for the solenoid controlled water valve, and that is the most likely failure item.

My whirlpool suddenly stopped dispensing water.


most fridges stop dispensing water when you open the door. Find the door switch and make sure fridge interior light goes on/off when you manually press door switch. This would show you that the door switch was faulty.

If the water connection to the appliance is one of those watts flood-safe water lines, it may have stuck shut. I've seen this happen when the house water pressure is too high.

Does it still make ice?

If so, then the water connection is good, and either the switch in the water dispenser has failed or the water shutoff valve for the water dispenser has gone bad.

Some models have a problem with the water line getting frozen, such that simply leaving the light on in the water dispenser compartment overnight and/or manually defrosting the unit can get it working again.

Your water line into the refrigerator is probably plugged up. First, check at the cut-off valve where the house water connects to the refrigerator water line. Mineral deposits often form in these small valves and can block the water flow.

The other possibility is a blocked water line within the refrigerator. Plastic weedeater line works very well to clean out these lines.

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.
