Water leaks from tube at the bottom of fridge for water dispenser only

The water/ice dispenser on my LG dispenses ice perfectly without leaks. When I use the water dispenser option, I have a leak coming from the tube at the bottom of the fridge, where the blue fitting joins the two pieces of white tubing together.

If it is a plastic compression fitting you can tighten each one a little(careful not to tighten them too much cause they can strip out) Use a small crescent wrench with a back up wrench.

I have a LG 26911 TT it does not dispence water but there is water leaking out of the bottom of the freezer door handle


the water comes from the house water through a filter then to the freezer where it is used to make ice and then chilled water goes on to the water dispenser. if you are making ice ok then the little tube that goes to the dispenser is broke or the valve that opens to allow water to fill your glass is broken or plugged up. You will need to disassemble the unit from inside the door... I sudjest taking a lot of pictures as you do the disassembly to aid you in putting it all back together.oh.. perhaps deforsting the fridge first might fix theproblem... if your lucky.

I push the water dispenser and no water comes out but comes out at the bottom?


The hose to the water dispenser up front cannot be connected and it is spilling the water onto the floor when the solenoid is activated.

My Amana french door/bottom freezer is leaking water. Did the procedure with hot water the drain in back of the freezer, although it seemed clear of ice. That didn't help. The leaking stops when I...


Two possibilities:
1. A cracked plastic tube. These will leak whenever there's a call for water - either the chilled water dispenser, or re-filling the icemaker tray (two seperate tubes). Pay particular attention to anywhere the tubes are clamped to the chassis; anywhere they're routed near or under the refrigeration unit; and near the solenoid valve - especially if there's a tight loop in the tube there.
2. A bad (leaking) connection where one of the tubes exits the water valve. Again, these will leak whenever the valve is activated.

Those plastic tubes don't last forever. I've replaced many of them for the same symptoms. They're known to simply deteriorate with age.
Manuf's make good money selling replacement tubing kits.

Freezer & Refrig does not get cold


without a model number to check out what else might be in that area of the door i'd say a piece of tubing from the water source is leaking, or you are getting ice melt from inside somehow making it out through that panel now. i believe the water for the door comes in through the bottom of the freezer door and works its way up to the dispenser area, the solenoid for the water inlet is behind the fridge near the bottom (you'll see the water tubing).
more likely somethings just not fitted or aligned properly and waters making it out someplace it shouldn't.
best of luck to ya

Whirlpool GR2FHTXVQ00 fridge. Water dispenser


The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.
The valve can leak because of sediment in the water preventing it from closing or low water pressure.

You can thaw out the fill tube and replace the inlet valves.

Side by side frigidaire ice maker not working


Check the water valve at the back of fridge. Are you getting water at the dispenser on the door? If so, the water valve may not be bad, but sometimes water will freeze in the tube that fills the icemaker. Pull it out from the back of the fridge and check it.Hope this helps !

Water Dispenser Drips


Had the same problem after replacing over seven water valves and installing a water regulator in the water line to the refrigerator with no help. Had to reduce the water pressure to about 27 pounds the reduce most of the drips. It drips an amount about the size of a quarter and when the water gets the coldest it stops the drip, but there is always a droplet at the end of the water disperser tube.

The problem is with water stored in the refrigerator side of the box. Water come in and does not leak. After the water gets colder it expands and oozes drips from the water dispenser. It is worse with the roll of tubing behind the crisper drawer on the bottom, because there is no room for expansion in the tubing. We replaced the tubing with and older style tank and it helped some, but not completely. The solution is 1. Try to buy a refrigerator with a tank instead of the roll of tubing in the bottom of the refrigerator side. 2. Don't use the water dispenser. 3. Reroute the tubing directly to the water dispenser and bypass going into the refrigerator, the water will not be as cold. 4. Avoid those built by Whirlpool.
