Remove Doors on Side by Side Kenmore Elite Refrigerator with water tube

I need to remove the doors of my Kenmore Elite side-by-side refrigerator. There is a water feed tube going into the door from the the bottom. There is also a connector that allows the tube from the door to connect to the supply line going under the refrigerator.

My question is how do I disconnect the tube so I can remove the door?

I had the same problem, it took me an hour. The connector allowing the tube from the door is connected to the back of the refrigerator. You must go to the back and unhook the white tube from the connector, then it will easily come off the refrigerators door. Hopefully it works for you.

Kenmore Elite refrigerator icemaker wont fill with water to make ice.


The water feed tube may be frozen. If you can see it you can try to defrost it with a hairdryer to allow the water to pass again.

Replace door water dispenser plastic tubing


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.

Our Kenmore Elite french door bottom freezer, automatic icemaker, no water/ice dispenser on the door - is leaking quite a bit - had to mop up the floor three times today. first time it's happened since...


Check for cracks in the water supply tube from the house plumbing valve to the ice maker. Could also be the valve itself.

Turn off valve for a day to diagnose which.

Kenmore elite (795.75544401)is suddenly dripping water from the bottom of left french door.


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
The dripping water could be from the evaporator coil unit.... Under normal conditions,Self-defrost refrigerators usually dispose the water generated during the defrost cycle through a tube or channel that directs the water a pan (Known as Drip pan), commonly below the refrigerator unit.... The channel or tube is clogged and the water is leaking to the refrigerator unit, so you need to clear that contamination....Once the blockage is removed, the generated water will move through that channel/tube directly to the drip pan and there will no water on the top shelf in the refrigerator compartment. Another cause may be the refrigerator may have doorframe heaters to evaporate any condensation on the cabinet frame. If your refrigerator is equipped with a switch inside that says “energy saver” or something like that, while running in that mode the door heaters are disabled. Turn the switch to the opposite setting and wait 24 hours. If the water disappears the problem is solved.

Best of Luck,


Please do Rate the solution, if you feel that this helps you,

Kenmore side by side: ice maker works...ice


Probably a broken plastic tube from the solenoid valve to the water outlet tube. It will stay dry until you try to get water then it may take a few days to dry out.
