    what can be the problem why the water dispenser keeps pouring out about a glass of water every 20 minutes without me touching anything? It started today when I was trying to fix the ice machine from not making enough ice cubes but I hooked everything back up. could I have hooked up wrong water tubes to the water inlet??

First turn it on and let about 5 gallons of water flow out. If it does not shut off after doing that then the valve on the back of the refrigerator is defective or the micro switch is bad. If you can do without the water dispenser then look on the back of the refrigerator and you will find a dual water valve. One is for the ice maker and the other is for the ice maker. Unplug the 2 wires for the water valve side. You will have to determine which is which. You can purchase a replacement dual valve at any appliance store. It is not likely the micro switch but it is possible. This is a time bomb just waiting to flood your kitchen so get this repaired ASAP and turn the water off until you do.

Hi,

When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve.
First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve

let us know if you want somethin more else please accept the suggestion.

Thank You for contacting Fixya.com

Why is my refrigerator leaking water after changing water filter?


The line going into the dispenser is a 5/16 line. You'll have to remove the front of the dispenser on the door to get access to the line to unclip it. Once you have that done you can pull the line out from the bottom. At this point there are a variety of different unions, compression fittings, etc. to splice the line. After that you just feed the line back through the bottom of the door, clip it back in place, put the dispenser back together and your done.

We never received a manual and now need to replace the water filter. model no. ASD2522WRW03 - ser. no. S01831393. also how do we order a replacement manual


The direct link to the manual from Amana is http://www.kitchenaid.ca/assets/pdfs/literature/User%20Instructions%20-%20W10237701A.pdf . If the direct link doesn't work, start here: http://shop.amana.com/product_literature/search_results.jsp?searchTerm=ASD2522WRW03&siteCd=AMA&userType=Consumer . The manual is also available at Manage My Life: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/17324/AMANA-Side-by-Side-Refrigerator-L1002225?brand_name_search=ASD2522WRB03+AMANA .

The filter you need is T2RFWG2 and P2RFWG2 (part number 4396841) . The filter is in the base grill on the freezer side of the side by side. There is a cap over the filter. You need to push the release button on the cap to remove the cap and filter. Save the cap and put it on the new filter before replacing the filter. If you replace the cap, you can use the water and ice dispenser without the filter.

If you want a printed copy of the manual, you can order it from Sears Parts Direct. They also have the filter. See http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Amana-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-ASD2522WRW03/1268/0165000/W1009009/00001?blt=06&prst=&shdMod= . The manual is part 1 ($5.99) and the filter is part 30 ($54.98). The filter is also available from Partstore.com http://www.partstore.com/Model/Maytag/Maytag/ASD2522WRW03.aspx for $37. Amana sells the filter here: http://www.amana.com/accessories/refrigerators/water_filters/refrigerator_water_filter___in_the_grille_fast_fill_push_button_4396841.pro?scr=category for $40. If you go here: http://www.amana.com/accessories/refrigerators/water_filters.cat , you can order several filters at once.

I hope this helps.

Where is the water filter on the amana #scd25tw


The Amana with model number SCD25TW does not have a water filter. You would have to install an in-line filter on the water supply line if you want to filter the water. If your talking about the model number ARS266ZBS, then open the refrigerator door and look at the top right hand side. You should see a filter housing with a tab to release. Once released you have to remove the filter from the housing to replace it. When finished be sure to run about a gallon through the dispenser, to flush any air out of the system.

The inside water spout on this refrigerator stopped dispensing water


Checckwater pressure.The 1/4" water supply line should deliver at least 9 ounces of water in 5 seconds. If not, the water pressure is low. Make sure the dispenser is notlocked. Some models have a lock feature that deactivates the dispenser andcontrol buttons. The lock button is located on the dispenser front cover.This feature controls unintentional dispensing. Press the"Unlock" or "Locked" button to reactivate the dispenser andallow dispenser function. You may need to hold the button for2 to 3 seconds. A clogged or incorrectly installedwater filter will reduce the water flow to the water dispenser. Check for aproblem with the filter by removing the filter and operating the dispenser. Ifwater begins to flow, then the filter is either clogged or incorrectlyinstalled. A clogged filter will need to be replaced. Thanks.

No ice or water from dispenser


Kathryn, make sure you do not have the dispenser locked out. Press and hold the lock button for 3 seconds. If you have a green light above the pad this indicates lock. You are going to have to hold the water lever for a while until all the air in the new filter is purged. Catriver...post back.
