Water dispenser slow

Not sure what happen but the water dispenser became really slow. Takes 3 times as long to fill a cup of water. I have changed the filter as well, but same problem. When I put the bypass switch instead of the filter it works fine.

    Thanks for your help. I tried another filter,l but same problem. When I removed the fileter, I noticed 2 blue holes that were dispensing the water with pressure. I pushed down on both, then put back the filter and it gave me the high pressure again. I guess something may have just got stuck, but as long as is working now. Thanks

Water left in fabric dispenser after load


The dispensers work by the siphon principle. You load the softener and at the proper time, the machine diverts water to the softener cup raising the level. In the softener cup, there is a tube loosely covered with a cap. When the level in the softener cup is raised high enough, a siphon effect is started and the softener is pulled from the cup into the washer. This will continue until the water quits flowing and air gets under tha cap, breaking the siphon. The amount of water remaining in the cup is dependent on the level of the cap, and the amount of residual water remaining in the dispenser fill tube once the siphon effect is broken. You can see this effect for yourself: take a measuring cup and slowly pour water into the softener cup, raising the level above the max line. When the level gets high enough, the contents of the cup will dispense. You can remove the cover cap that is a part of the dispenser and clean it; it will help. Removing the entire tray and cleaning all of the tubes and the cap assembly will also help. The only other thing that can be done is to change the dispensing supply valve, as it sounds like there may be some leak by after the fabric softener is dispensed. Having residual water isn't really hurting anything. It's only water, and the machine has dispensed the softener! Try the cleaning part first as this usually corrects the issue, and then the repair technician if it still bothers you. For as much as the extnded warranty costs, you should be completely satisfied with your machine.

No water going in the ice maker but water dispener

Pour about 2/3 cup of water into icemaker . If it freezes and does not dump , replace the icemaker . Check to make sure the coils are clean of dust , lint , pet hair , etc . If it does dump , and does not refill with water , replace the water inlet valve ( piece behind refrig where the wall water line connects to on the fridge ) . Check to make sure the fill tube that fills the icemaker is not blocked with ice , still indicating a bad water inlet valve ( slow seep ) .

Water from dispenser slows down while filling cup

If your water is slowing down the screen on the water valve may be stopped up or the filter (if it has one, when was it last changed?) or line feeding the refrigerator may be stopped up or the water valve its self may not be opening all the way and staying open.

To eliminate 3 of the external problems take the water line off the fridge and run some water into a pan and open and close water like at your kitchen sink and see if the water slows or speeds up noticeably while running into the pan. If so the problem is in the water line. While you have thew line off remove and inspect the water inlet valve screen and replace the hose washer (if so equipped) this brings your problem if you have not found it yet to the inside of the fridge. Usually on the corner of the door hinge the water line makes a turn up to the dispenser inspect it there and see if its twisted or kinked. Also there is a water resiviour inside the fridge look there for the same thing and possibley where food may have been forced agianst the line.

If you still dont find it by now I'D have to know what you did find and where.

If this helps you please rate me with as high a rating as you can and thank you for using fix ya.

Water is really slow

it was good before you changed that first filter? if so you probably got something in the line. from removing filter like part of oring or something and its now in your line from filter. try turning water off and break open water line before filter and see how well it poors there into a bucket or something and work your way down to the dispenser.

Water Dispenser

The water does come out slow on these models. I know you said you replaced your filter with a new one and it is still not any faster.

I own a Kenmore Elite #596 73503 201. I have not changed my filter for approximately 18 months and when I timed how long it took to fill a 2 Cup measuring cup (liquid measure) it took: less than 45 seconds. Can you test yours and post back how long it takes with your fridge?

Water fills dispensers

A small amount of water left in them is normal but if they are totally filled something is wrong. Do you still have the blue pieces in the bleach and softner cups? If they're missing they will not empty right. You may also have build up in the holes that the liquid should go down that you may have to clean out.

Rival automatic steamer rice cooker 4450 guide needed

Here's all the info I've been able to find:

The older Rival rice cooker steamer should have a base, a lid, steamer basket, and rice bowl.

To cook rice, fill center basin of base with water. Place the rice bowl on basin. Add rice and water as follows. For white rice add water in a 1:1 ratio to rice plus 1/2 cup. For brown rice add water in a 1:1 ratio to rice plus 3/4 cup. Examples: 1 cup white rice, 1-1/2 cup water; 2 cups brown rice, 2-3/4 cups water. Put lid on and plug in and in about 50 minutes you should have delicious rice.

Timing is Everything
Whether using the Rival Steamer for a main dish or for a side dish, cooking is easy. But not Fast. Rice and steamed vegetables actually take twice as long to cook in this steamer. The simplicity comes since you add your rice or vegetables in one step. No waiting for one thing to happen before you can do the next. Put water and fruits, vegetables, fish, poultry or rice in the basket or bowl that come with the unit, cover, plug in and wait for the light to go off per the timing chart.
1/4 cup water takes 6 -7 minutes
1/2 cup water takes 10-12 minutes
3/4 cup water takes 16-17 minutes
1 cup water takes 19-22 minutes
1.25 cups water takes 24-26 minutes
1.5 cups water takes 26-30 minutes
2 cups water takes 38-39 minutes
2.5 cups water takes 43-44 minutes
3 cups water (max fill) takes 45-50 minutes.

Steamed Chocolate Pudding (From the Rival Steamer Guide)
3/4 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1.5 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup chopped nuts
Sift together flour, baking powder and salt; set aside. Cream butter and vanilla until fluffy. Gradually add sugar, beat well. Add egg and melted chocolate; blend well. Add milk alternately with dry ingredients and beat until smooth. Fold nuts into batter. Pour into greased 8"x4" loaf pan. Cover pan with aluminum foil. Place pan in steamer basket. Cover and steam until wooden pick inserted near center comes out clean. Serve warm with **Marshmallow Cream Sauce. Water: 1 cup. Time: 19-22 min.

**Marshmallow Cream Sauce:
16 large marshmallows
1/3 cup cream
In a small saucepan, combine ingredients and melt over low heat. Serve over Steamed Chocolate Pudding.
