Replace the dual solenoid valve which supplies water to the icemaker and the water dispenser. The solenoid that supplies water to the dispenser is not fully closing, therefore seeping water through the tube.

Why does my fill tube for my ice maker continue to drip and freeze up?


Usually a leaking water valve can cause this. This can be caused by low or high water pressure or just a leaking valve. Remove the tube from the valve and if water continues to drip from the valve it is bad or the water pressure is wrong. If it does not drip, leave the water line disconnected from the valve and dispense some water from the dispenser to see if it leaks. If it does the water is bleeding over and the valve is bad. If the valve is not leaking at all insure the fill tube that goes through the box and supplies water to the ice maker is seated properly and sealed off with permagum for instance. Also make sure the freezer section is not too cold ie -15 or -20 as this could cause issues.

Ice maker will not work. Water is coming into the back of the refrigerator and water dispenses out of water dispenser. But no water will go to the ice maker.


Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. It’s on the back where the water supply comes in. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Water drips from the water dispenser


Hi, If the water is dripping from the dispenser tube, you need a water valve. The valve is not shutting off completely. Check to make sure water is not dripping from ice chute. If the chute door doesn't seal off you will get moisture there and it will also frost up the ice chute.

Take care

I have a leaky spigot what can I do


If the spigot means the end of the water tube in the water dispenser, and it steadily drips even if the dispenser is not used for 10 minutes or so - replace the water valve. If the dispenser drips water mostly wright after you used it - you might have some air bubbles in the refrigerator water tubing.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water.

You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

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
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.

Water drips from door door water access


Hi, it sounds like you have an inlet valve going bad. It is not sealing tight enough to stop the water pressure. Part # WR57X10032and is located below the refrigerator in the back. If you remove the tube that goes to the dispenser, you can probably see the water dripping from the valve.
Please let me know if this helps you. Let me know if I can assist you further.


Thanks

Water Dispenser Drips


Had the same problem after replacing over seven water valves and installing a water regulator in the water line to the refrigerator with no help. Had to reduce the water pressure to about 27 pounds the reduce most of the drips. It drips an amount about the size of a quarter and when the water gets the coldest it stops the drip, but there is always a droplet at the end of the water disperser tube.

The problem is with water stored in the refrigerator side of the box. Water come in and does not leak. After the water gets colder it expands and oozes drips from the water dispenser. It is worse with the roll of tubing behind the crisper drawer on the bottom, because there is no room for expansion in the tubing. We replaced the tubing with and older style tank and it helped some, but not completely. The solution is 1. Try to buy a refrigerator with a tank instead of the roll of tubing in the bottom of the refrigerator side. 2. Don't use the water dispenser. 3. Reroute the tubing directly to the water dispenser and bypass going into the refrigerator, the water will not be as cold. 4. Avoid those built by Whirlpool.
