Question about Whirlpool GR2SHWXPB 21.7 cu.ft. Top Mount Refrigerator with External EZ Touch Water Dispenser: Black
I have a 7 year old refrigerator that started acting up about 2 weeks ago. First, the ice maker would freeze up where the water line/water inlet to the ice maker and water would get inside the ice bin and freeze up all of the ice in one big clump. Second, the tube for the water dispenser (outside the refrigerator) is starting to have a slow drip.
I was able to initially fix the ice maker problem by defrosting the tube. But after 2-3 days, it starts all over again. The same problem. As far as the water dripping from the water dispenser, I read in the owner's manual which suggested that I drain/dispense the water (approximately 2-3 minutes) in order to let all of the air out but the problem still continues.
My filter is due for a change (every six months) and I am wondering if this would solve these issues. Please help/advise.
It's time to replace the dual water inlet valve (the part the water line connects to). A bit of sediment or other fine object can get in the seat or the material itself can deteriorate and allow a tiny amount of water to pass up to the icemaker.
