No water thru door

My water stopped comming out thru the dispenser. I disconnected the water line at the bottom of the freezer door and when I push the water button the water will come out of the dissconnected tube. The problem is some where between the bottom of the freezer door and the water despenser. Any idea on how to fix? Thanks for your time,Brian no water thru door - stops from filter to tube under ice box - won't go from blue tube to door

    I'm having the same exact problem! My water dispenser doesn't work but ice is being produced with no problem. Changed the filter & heard the water fill the filter so I know the water line is fine. Motor is fine...everything is fine except no water! I have a feeling the line is frozen as your repair person found in yours but I'll check out the heat tape myself before contacting any GE repair person!! I'm sorry for your problems with GE but your exposing this problem will help many others like myself. Are there any other updates since your last report?

    Same as all you others. No water at the spigot but come out at bottom freezer door ok..Does anyone have a part number and a way to do it myself??
    Cant figure out how to get the inside door off of the freezer.


  • cheri_nash Dec 20, 2008

    I have the same issues..no water thru door. Ice maker works but ice is smaller and is having trouble making enough for a family of 4. I read what the problem is but I do not understand how I am suppose to fix it.

  • frednjock Jan 03, 2009

Blow dry for ten minutes the side panel of the freezer door where the water tubes come up. Wait two hours, and it should magically start working again. Pain!!!

OK guys, GE does have a solution to this problem and it's EXPENSIVE. I goofed and called GE repair. $263 later it was fixed. Here's what I've done to villify them:


General Electric Company March 31, 2008
3135 Easton Turnpike
Fairfield, CT 06828-0001 Attn: J. Immelt Dear sir or madam, or whoever opens this because I know Jeff Immelt won't be the actual person to open it. This has already been sent to GE Corporation Appliance Park 6, Room 129 Louisville, KY. 40224 so don't send it to them. Send it to someone who may actually do something about this problem. I have a GE refrigerator, Model GSS25WGPAWW, S# AF 217252 which has had a continuing problem for several years. My first error was in not reporting this sooner. My home is in a gated community in which the developer used GE appliances exclusively. What I have determined now (after I paid for the repair) is that many residents have had the exact same problem: the in-door water dispenser freezes solid. The second mistake I made was calling GE repair to fix the problem. I was charged a total of $ 263.15 for the repair; $ 63.30 for the part, a flat rate of $79.95 for the repairman to show up and then $105.00 labor cost plus tax. Our community has an Internet based communications system ( Googlelist) and I posted the following message there. . My fellow residents responded that GE did fix many of the same problems at no charge after they call GE Customer Care rather than GE repair. Several others have paid for the repair. I then reported this to your sales http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/contact/form_service.htm) department up until the 25th of March , I have received no reply. ____________________________________________________________________________ TO:http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/contact/form_service.htm Just thought you'd like to know: I live in a gated community with over 1400 residents and they all got the following message: Posted on Googlelist-at Herons Glen So my water line to the in-door dispenser kept freezing up. I'd have to turn the fridge off and open the freezer door for up to 5 hours for it to melt. Then 3 or 4 days later it would freeze again. So the GE repair guy came and installed a $63 part in about 20 minutes. It was a heat tape applied inside the dispenser cover. Now for the fun part: $79 just to show up and then $105 "labor" ??? That's about $315 per hour - my kind of job. Oh yea, another $14.90 in taxes. Once I had the part number, I found the part on-line for $42. Forget about it really being a manufacturing defect that should be covered by warrantee. GE does not care! They advertise how "energy conscious" they are and then solve a defect with a heat tape that adds heat to an appliance that's supposed to be cold! Go figure! If this offends any ex-GE employees....GOOD _____________________________________________________________________________________ When I subsequently called GE customer Care on March 25th I was told "we have no recalls on that model and there is nothing we can do". I've gone on-line and searched for "GE water dispenser" problems and, WOW, you've got lots of problems. On March 26 I got a reply from From: answerctr@exchange.appl.ge.com They gave me a Tracking Number and another phone number to call 1-888-348-7563. I called that number on 3-27-08 and got the same answer: "we have no recalls on that model, have a nice day". My question is: Will GE do something about this? I have $ 263.15 out of pocket cost, a copy of the repair bill is enclosed, for what appears to be a design flaw and that flaw has been repaired for others "at no cost". Sincerely, Tom Morookian 20729 Mystic Way No. Ft. Myers, FL 33917 239-731-3452 Tommorookian@aol.com encl: (1)

The real problem is that the water line is supposed to be installed against the front panel of the freezer door. During assembly they don't do this so some of the lines are against the inside edge of the door, they then "foam" the door and they freeze. The heat tape does fix the problem and you can do it yourself. I'm "GEsucks" for a real good reason. I've posted this on several web-sites and I'm looking for a lawyer to file a class action suit!

    Strangely enough, over a year after this problem started, it stopped. Now water flows through the spiget in the door-now problem. Strange.

I have a hotpoint fridge model HSS25GFPHWW. The ice maker/dispenser works, but the water dispenser quit a couple of months ago. I have good water supply & pressure to the appliance. Could the controlling electronics (mother board) be "half dead"?? If so, how much are new ones??

I would try putting on the light at the dispenser. It worked for me but took almost 24 hours to work. I am now keeping the light on all the time. Simple solution to try. My ice was working when the water was not coming out.

Sounds like the door area heater is not working and the tube is freezing up in the door near the dispensor. Try turning off the unit for a day with the door open to see if it suddenly starts working again. That would lead you to believing it was a freeze plug. Rarely does the line kink in the door.

I had the same problem with mine. It is a known problem by GE. I talked smart with GE and was able to get a new door for free including installation. Great service, but the box just stopped cooling (5 months later) and I lost my food this weekend waiting for a service call. I have had the cold box three years and know the serviceman by name. GE has been nice but the product has not been as reliable as I would have expected.

Inside filter water dispenser suddenly stopped working. New filter removed and no working with or without filter . Water line is fine. Ice maker works.


Your water line could be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line under the unit before it goes into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if it comes out there. If it does leave the door open till it thaws. Covering the opening with a blanket will prevent the loss of cold in the freezer. . GE makes a heater that will prevent this from happening again. The part number for this heater is WR49X10173.

disconnect the line to the water dispenser at the water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in and try the dispenser. if you hear the valve work but water doesn't come out, the valve is bad. If you don't hear the valve, the dispenser switch is bad

While water is being dispensed through the cool water outlet, water leaks thru the flexable line at the bottom of the freezer compartment door. Whats the problem, and how can it be fixed?


Due to water comming from the bottom of the dooe , you will need to replace the door water line . Pt # WR17X10206 is the replacement line . Remove the upper portion and " feed " the new line down thru the freezer door .

No water coming out of water dispenser but water is going to ice dispenser


disconnect line at bottom of freezer door and see if water comes thru there when activating switch. If it does use a hair dryer and thaw the water line by warming the inside of the freezer door. Long process but will work. Only other option is to unplug for 24 hours.

If it doesn't come out there disconnect it at the water inlet valve and see if it comes out there. The valve could be bad.

A strainer before the inlet valve can also get stopped up restricting flow.

I CANNOT GET WATER THROUGH THE DOOR, HAVE WATER TO THE LINE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE DOOR


Remove lower grill and disconnect the water line going through the freezer door hinge. Usually it is a push lock fitting, which requires you to push the ring2_bing.gif on the end of the fitting toward the center of the fitting while pulling (not hard) on the plastic tube. Now place a pan under the separated plastic hose and try the water dispenser. If water comes out, your problem is a frozen water line in the freezer door. A warmer freezer temp may help, or you can order and install a WR49X10173 water tube heater2_bing.gif. (the heater may take 24 hours to thaw the line, but I have used it successfully several times. Cost about $50) If no water comes out the separated tube when you try to dispense water, reconnect the tube at the hinge by pushing the plastic line back into the fitting. Now, at the back of the refrig., disconnect the water line going from the water valve to the fresh foods compartment. Try to dispense water. No water at valve outlet = bad valve. Water dispensed from valve now = frozen water filter or water line at back bottom of fresh foods compartment. (make sure you disconnect the right tube. If in doubt, disconnect them both, just get them back correctly so your icemaker continues to work) Send me additional comments if needed. Don't rate before you try all the steps.
