Question about Whirlpool 24.8 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Bottom-Mount Freezer - White-on-White

Water slowly coming out of dispenser

For the first two months the dispenser worked perfect. For the last two weeks, it started coming out very slowly. I am not patient enough to wait 2 minutes for 16 ounce glass to fill up.

Is this a new Unit or a second hand unit? If it is not new... most likely there is debris in the water valve inlet or the actual saddle valve / faucett connection to the refrigerator water supply line is partially blocked.

Without a Model number to ensure the exact parts inside the unit for you to check is a bit of a problem.

Most of the water valves are the same and an example of yours would be item 10 of this link: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5132635&diagram_id=945271#d945271

- What I recommend you do is disconnect the water supply line on the back of the unit and check 16 oz. of water flow at the end of the supply line. Water OFF before disconnecting the supply line.

- IF the water flow is the same as through the door you will need to find out why there is not enough flow from the water supply source.
- Additionally IF you have a water filter installed external to the unit... it can be clogged or full of sediment and need to be changed.
- If you discover that the water supply is of good quantity and pressure there is also the possibility of a pinched or kinked plastic water line some where inside the refrigerator.
- Sometimes the hose that passes through the door hinge flattens out and restricts water flow.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Refrigerator about 5 years old. stopped dispensing water twice in last 12 months. Ice and crushed ice works perfectly. No water for last 2 months. Whats up?


You have two points where you can check the dispenser water. At the rear where the water supply comes in is the water inlet valve. If you disconnect the dispenser water line and then see if the water comes out when you try the dispenser. You should hear the valve work when you try the dispenser. If you don’t hear it there is a dispenser actuator switch problem. If you do hear it but water doesn’t work here there is a valve or water supply problem. If it's normal, disconnect it at the bottom of the freezer door and try again.If it's normal here it may be frozen in the door. If this is the case open the door till it thaws. A blanket over the opening will prevent thawing of all the food.

Water not dispensing/flow is not fast


Sound like time for a new filter. When was the last time it was changed? If less than a year or two, it's not the problem. If more, it's likely the filter is clogged reducing the pressure flow of water.

My GE Refrigerator Clicks for hours but will not start.


Clicking you describe sounds like a bad motherboard. Water dispenser issues have been result of frozen water in the tubing in the bottom of the FF area, which you should not have at the moment, so if it is not dispensing water now I'd check the water valve coil. (there are two coils on the inlet valve, one for the icemaker and one for the water dispenser.)
