Water dispenser leaks when getting water . This is Frigidare refrigerator , is it the valve on back ?


Hello Marie Baxter: If you suspect the water dispenser is leaking, make sure it is the hoses coming from the filter and not the actual filter.


Sometimes the clamps on the hoses for fridge water filters can come loose or the hose itself could crack; in which case the hose would need replacing (or tightening the clamp), and not the filter.

If you clearly find the filter is leaking, the best thing to do is make sure it is installed properly.

If it is securely in place, then you may just have a defective filter and changing it will solve the leaking.

You will need to remove the filter, which is typically located in the back of the refrigerator and inspect it to see what condition it is in.


•For instance, if it is black or looks dirty, you probably will want to replace it.


•Moreover, when there is a leak or a clog, you will notice a dramatic decrease in the output of the water dispenser tab, which is another sign there may be a leak in the water filter. If you know the water filter in your refrigerator is leaking, then you can take the water filter out and see if it has anything loose on it, but typically if it is leaking, it probably is best to replace the water filters for refrigerators.


•This is especially true if you use the filtered water from the refrigerator as your main home water filter systems.


•Moreover, if it has been awhile since you changed the filter; it can become clogged over time, which can cause it to leak.


When you are faced with having a leaking filter refrigerator water unit, it helps to think through the pros and cons of fixing the leak vs. replacing the refrigerator water filter.

Water leak on floor of Kitchen Aid built in refrigerator.(KSS48QDX04) Pulled bottom panel but cannot see water valve. Probably needs replacing, but how do I access it? (water leak stopped when water supply...


It is so common that the drain leaks in many ways and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged or the drain hose clamps can be loose on the grip which can all cause the leak to occurs. Removing and Cleaning the drain pump/valve, tightening of the hose is also very important. Also water can leak if there is gaps on the front door gaskets and must be checked but this will happen only during the cycle and not on the drain cycle end.

Water does not stop pouring from water/ice dispenser. Door-to-door GE Profile Refrigerator Model TFX22PPDACC. How to troubleshoot the problem? Or what part need to be replaced?


With the water running tube/pipe is cracked in between or its got loose from its fitting.First inspect the line for this problem.The tube from which water passes, one end is connected to the water valve at the back base of refrigerator.And then from valve two tube runs.One tube is for water dispenser and another tube is for ice chamber filling.Follow that tube from back of the refrigerator.The water dispenser tube That passes through the freezer door also.And the ice maker tube.That connects to the back of ice maker tray.The water fills in the tray.See if that tube is got loose and its not throwing water out instead of ice maker tray.Many a times this happens.--- May be you need to remove the ice maker to get exact location for tube setting and position.----------- But if tubes from water and ice dispenser sections are fitted properly and then there can be crack in the tube.------------But if tubes checked out ok then other possibility can be faulty water fill grommet.------- The grommet is cracked.And that is causing the leak.--------- Go to the back of the unit and remove the cover at the lower right of the unit. This is where the water line goes into your unit. Remove the water line at the solinoid that goes to your ice maker . This will allow you enough slack to remove the old water fill tube and replace it with the new one.
You need to push the white retainers in to release the tubeing from the solenoids.
------------
The part you need is called fill tube grommet.It has to be removed and replaced.The tube is connected to the grommet. Click this link below for more help:---http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2011/06/how-to-remove-ice-maker-fill-tube-from.html
------------ The other possibility for this leak, is water valve.The water valve close and open.When its open, it lets water to the tube.When it closes it stops water.But if the valve is not closing then it will let the water to enter non stop, slowly --- slowly the inside tube getw over filled and then starts leaking.------------ The water valve is not required as per the problem.But if after doing all the repairing, still the same problem, noticed then water valve is required.Because is water valve is not closing properly, then it leaks some water, (drop by drop) and this can cause water to collect in the grommet and this gets formed into ice and the same leaking repeats.---------but at present dont buy water valve.Just keep an eye on this same problem.sometimes leaking will start after few days.In that case also replace water vale.------- Now for other parts, that are extension hose,icemaker tube and clamp.Out of this you will require clamps, sometimes while removing old tube the clamp gets cracked.you can buy this.The extension hose is required if the tube is getting short or actual hose is cracked in between.i dont think you will require extension hose at present.And for ice maker tube.This tube can also be cracked and cause leak.this tubes by time gets bit swollen and loose its grip.Its actually not required.But if you still replace it, that it will be good.--------so you can order clamp and icemaker tube with the grommet part.----------- The parts which you want to order, this is direct link for parts:-- 1. Dual Inlet Water Valve------------ (http://www.partselect.com/PS901314-GE-WR57X10051-Dual-Inlet-Water-Valve.htm)
2. Icemaker Water Line ----------

Water is leaking from under the refrigerator Model # GI7FXCX. What could be the cause


It could be one of three things. The door front water dispenser hose is cracked or broken. The freezer is defrosting and the base catch pan is not in place or you have a spill in the fridge you are not aware of. I will assume it is not the latter, so you need to pull the fridge out from the wall and check the area beneath it from an approx on the leak. Check the hoses for the water dispenser by running your fingers along them and if they are wet, you have found your leak. You need just replace the hose and it will solve your problem. If this is not the case, check the base pan for a hole. It is normal for some condensation to come out of your fridge, not a lot, but some. Check if the pan has a leak in it and you can replace if necessary. I would be real inclined to think the water dispenser is causing the problem.

By the way your model number is GI7FVCXWY

Water is leaking from water hose at bottom of frige when water handle is depressed. Ice maker works.


If your hose is copper or plastic, this is a common problem.

I reccomend replacing it with a stainless steel braided, icemaker line. They are more flexible and less prone to leaks.

Water filter leaks replaced filter with bypass water leaks from drain holes underneath


In the very back of the unit, there is a black rubber drain hose that is supposed to drip into evaporator tray that is mounted on top of the evaporating tray. Check that hose is not plugged and that water is draining in tray.

My Whirlpool refrigerator also leaks water from back.


Leaky dispenser ???
Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out of it and see if you have a slow drip. If so you need to replace the valves.

Faucet Attachment Leaks


If your dishwasher leaks, check these:Main tub seal
Door gasket or seal
Water-inlet valve
Hoses

Main tub seal
Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the:

1. Lower rack
2. Spray arm
3. Spray arm support
4. Wash/drain impellers


Then pry the seal out of its housing and replace it.


Door gasket or seal
Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak. 


Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses
Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.
