Question about Whirlpool ED5SHAXM Side by Side Refrigerator

Rattling in water line to refrigerator

When faucets in house are turned off, or when toilets are flushed, water line to fridge starts shaking and slapping poly line behind said fridge. It lasts for approximately 7-10 seconds. My concern, beside the nerve-racking sound, is that something will eventually shake loose and leak.
My Question: How do I make it stop?
Note: I did install a bleeder valve in my attic plumbing, thinking that would "burp" air out of the system, but that didn't do it.

AVibrating sound for 10 seconds- like a moan- after toilet is flushed and filled.What is going on? It doesn't happen every time.


Depends upon several things, the most difficult would be too much air in the pipes. Before having a "anti-hammer" installed; I would try this... go to the supply for the cold water pipe (for that room, dependent upon the age and style of your home) maybe the basement??? See if there is a place, other than the toilet, to turn off the water supply (turn the water off), open the cold water valves of your sink and tub and flush the toilet, and drain about 1 quart of water from that line. Leave the tub and sink cold water valves open and slowly open the valve you turned off, allow water to flow from the faucets and flush the toilet a few times. What you are trying to do is allow the air to escape. Turn off the faucets and flush the toilet again, open the partially closed valve all the way. This should get rid of trapped air, and it is the cheapest first step. This is one example of an "Anti-hammer" device.

Note: On some houses it may be difficult to find a place to drain the cold water line, without turning off the entire home.

My amana side by side fridge water dispenser drips and seems to drip a lot more when say the toilet flushes or the washing machine is running almost like it starts a siphon


Sounds like you need to replace the water solenoid valve, located where the water line connects to the back of the fridge, usually behind the fiber cover at the bottom.

These valves are damaged by dirt in the lines. Dirt and scale roughs up the valve needle and seat, and leak more with lower water pressure.

You can get valvesand valve kits from appliance part stores, Home depot or sears parts via ordering. I highly suggest an external in-line filter that will stop this forever, and suppliment the internal filter for taste. If particles are damaging this valve, it is also slowly causing damage to the other water valves in the bathrooms and toilets. If you have to replace valve washers a lot, then a whole house filter would be worth it.

I have a Grundfos Comfort System. At the tap farthest from the hot water tank, I get a tremendous amount of grainy residue from the tap. No other taps have the residu. I've replaced teh water softener,...


Sounds like you have sediment built up in the pipes, and maybe the furthest faucet is the gathering place.
Take off each shut-off valve at furthest faucet and connect a water hose that flows into nearby toilet bowl.
You can buy garden-hose-to-1/2-pipe adapter at hardware.
Open water so it flushes the line into toilet bowl.
Then clean out valves and reassemble shut-offs and grundfos connection.
Remove faucet aerator and flush line up to faucet.
Install new aerator.

Only hot water in sink/basin when toilet is flushed


I had a customer a few weeks ago that had the same problem. When the water heater was installed they crossed the supply lines. They had the inlet as the outlet. Esentially, the water heater was plumbed in backwards. Also there could be a miss piping somewhere in the house but it would probably be near impossible to find it right now without tearing up foundations. Also check that the faucet is not plumbed backwards as well. Especially if this is a single handle faucet that you are referring to.

SHOWER HOT WATER SCALDING


hi as you are probably aware ,when the toilet is flushed the water pressure to the shower is reduced so you get hot/scalding water unfortunatly there is NO easy solution you could put a needle valve in the supply to the toilet and with trial and error by turning the valve down reach a compromise between the time it takes to fill the flushing tank and the shower temp the only real solution is to feed the toilet and shower off independent supplies but in most houses this is impractical if not impossible silk090

Filtered water


what kind of supply line is going to the dispenser,, if you have well water you might want to think about even another filter in the line before the frige, change the supply line to copper if it is copper change it to another copper line,,, there is no reason for it to only happen to the ice maker,, what about the ice bucket and ice tray:{where the water fills to make the ice} try cleaning these also
