Whirlpool side by side, water-ice through the door. Icemaker and ice dispenser works fine, water dispenser does not. What could be wrong?


I think the solenoid that operates the water on and off is bad. After awhile calcium deposit builds up around the plunger causing it to stick. That's what happened with my refrigerator. Hope This Helps.

Detergent dispenser does not dispense.


see the causes and remedies:
Most dispenser problems are due to being gummed up with detergent, fabric softner, bleach residue, and water deposits. First check the dispenser drawer by pulling it out of the dispenser itself. To do this push down on the tab in the back and remove. Check that all is thoroughly clean. No holes blocked up. Now there are several types of dispensers out there but most have holes in the top where it dispenses hot or cold water to the appropriate area. These holes can become plugged up. If you have really hard water I would say replace the dispenser if it is gummed up bad. Otherwwise remove the dispenser and thoroughly clean it out. Before doing this check the solenoids that allow water through the dispenser. The solenoids can be checked with an ohmeter but if all is clean and the solenoid does not open to allow flow replace the unit or solenoid. Connect your ohmeter and refer to the tech sheet or service manual for the proper reading. You can also check for voltage going to the solenoid. If you have voltage when each solenoid should be working, example: When the machine should be dispensing fabric softner, The solenoid that allows water to flow through that area should have voltage. If it does replace the solenoid or unit.

One is the icemaker will leak on the auger motor and freeze it up as you describe. If this is the problem the ice will be very solid (hard ice). If this is the case check to see if the tube that feeds the icemaker water is clogged with ice and if so remove the ice and replace the water valve. If not the icemaker may be overflowing, which is still most likely due to a bad water valve.

The other thing that will cause this is an air leak. If it is an air leak the ice will be frosty more like snow than hard ice. But even so it will still cause the auger not to work. If this is the case check the little flap that opens and closes to let ice through the door to see if it is closing properly. Then check the door gasket to see if it is sealing properly.

Turning the temp. down shouldn't help nor hurt your problem.

Reduced amt of brewed coffee dispensed into cup; water appearing to flow from underneath coffeemaker at the same time.


Hi
I am sorry to say but that is probably your boiler leaking. Usual cause is water hardness set too low (anything lower than 4), which leds to not descaling enough to remove deposits that cause the boiler to leak. Your only remedy is to replace the boiler.

The ice and water dispenser on my Amana Refrigerator slowly leaks water. Are there repair parts to correct this? And how is the plastic frame containing the dispenser removed from the door?


The problem is most likely not in the door. When the dispense button is pressed it actuates an electric solenoid valve in the rear of the refrigerator that opens and allows the water to flow. Over time the valve seals get worn and the water seeps by. This is what usually causes a drip at the water dispenser. If there is a drip at the ice side then the door is jammed and is not closing fully. This allows the ice at the opening to melt and drip. Hope this helps. Please accept and rate. Good luck.

Hello there:
Here is a few tips that might help you out
Hope that they are very helpful for you
Best regards Mike
Washing machine is leaking Washing machine leaks are very common. There are many places a washing machine can leak from although most leaks come from the same few places. The most common cause for a leaking washing machine is the door seal. Door seals often get holes in them and water leaks down the inside of the washing machine which then runs out under the front. Water leaking down the front of the washing machine from the door can be caused by a worn door seal (the flange part that the door glass presses against when closed) or something trapped between the door seal and the door glass which breaks the seal. If the door seal doesn't look worn, or it's too young to be worn, then try cleaning the door seal's flange and the door glass on the inside of the door. Bits of cotton, un dissolved washing machine detergent etc can cause a leak.
Soap dispenser leaks
The next most common cause of a leaking washing machine is the soap dispenser. Leaking water from a soap dispenser is often caused by a blockage, or water pressure that is simply too high. Despite seeing many leaking soap dispensers, I've never seen a soap drawer with a seal, they just rely on water not getting to the front which is not really good enough. Some Hoover soap dispensers in particular, are renowned for leaking, and over the years Hoover have had to introduce modified soap dispensers twice.
Some washing machines, can flood water out of the soap dispenser when a hose gets blocked (usually with un dissolved soap powder) Indesit, and Candy, as well as some of the later Hoover washing machines suffered from this design flaw. The hose where the water is flushed down, was right at the front of the soap dispenser on these washing machines and the hose wasn't wide enough. Un dissolved powder from a tablet or lumps of detergent through poor hot water pressure can block this hose solid. (Note: water flooding out of the front of a washing machine's soap dispenser can also be an indication of overfilling or a partial pump blockage if it does it when spinning)
Finally, black gunge in the top of the soap dispenser can cause water to spray towards the front and leak. Take out the soap dispenser drawer and look at the roof of the soap dispenser. If it's covered in black gunge, blocking some of the water holes, it could be causing problems. In extreme cases I've had to replace the dispenser.
Tips for finding a leak on a washing machine
  • If you have a leaking washing machine, and you can't see where it's coming from, shove some newspaper underneath the washing machine. The slightest drop will give a clue where the water is leaking from. Pull the sheet out regularly to check for water leaks.
  • Water can run round things and drip onto other parts. Be careful with your diagnosis, as water dripping from a hose at the bottom could actually be leaking from somewhere else higher up.
  • Leaks usually leave marks, so it's possible to see something is leaking even without witnessing it. The soap suds that come out with the leaking water leave white trails. Rust is a good indicator of a water leak too. However, if you have had a previous leak cured, the "evidence" of a leak may still be present so be sure you don't blame a part that was repaired in the past.
  • If the washing machine leaks only at the end of the wash, when water is being pumped out. Make sure water isn't backing up and cascading over the top of a blocked drain pipe in the plumbing.
  • WARNING: Don't get electrocuted trying to witness a leak. It's dangerous running the washing machine with the top or back off.

I have a Kitchenaid KUDS25SHBL1 dishwasher that is leaking from the bottom of the door. I replaced the main gasket around the body that the door seals against, and it is still leaking.


Have you removed the outer door to check if the leak is coming from inside the door . also check the bottom door seal ? also check the around the soap dispenser as I have had to silicone around them to keep them from leaking before..let me know if this helps at all.

Whirlpool refridgerator ice maker


Check your water valve. Most likely it is leaking by the seal on the icemaker side of the valve so that it is getting a slight trickle of water all the time to the fill tube. This will freeze in the tube much like an icecicle is formed. This is the most common cause. Low water pressure and mineral deposits inside the tube can cause it also, but it usually will take longer than a few days for the problem to reappear.
The dispenser housing and parts on your fridge are replacable and show to still be available.
You can go to sears.com, click on parts, enter your model number, and see parts diagrams and lists for your fridge.
This link should go directly to the parts site.

Post back and let me know about the water valve.
Thanks/Mike

Washer tub slowly fills with water


Is your problem a SLOW FILL problem, or a problem with WATER DRIPPING FROM THE RUBBER DOOR SEAL - or BOTH? If you have a slow fill problem, this is generally caused by a bad fill valve, which can be attributed to hard water deposits or well water mineral deposits. Sometimes the fill valve can be removed, cleaned and reinstalled, but most of the time a new fill valve is required. If you are experiencing water leaking from the rubber door seal (bellow), it may be time to replace it. Sometimes the seal can develop a wrinkle or crease where it meets the glass, which can cause leaks. Water dripping from the door when you open after washing a load is normal. Water dripping during a load is NOT. The bellow may also have started to rip or tear inside the door which may not be noticeable until you pull the folds of the bellow back and look underneath it. I hope this helps.
