Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators

Open Question

I have a Whirlpool Model GC3SHEXNS16 and all of a sudden the door water dispenser has stopped working. I have already tried a new water filter and no improvement, the water lines are connected fine and water is coming from the main water line. What is the deal?

SOURCE: Water dispenser not working

2 things i want you to try before you call a tech out first under frezer door there is a connector where the 2 lines connect disconect both off now actuate the water at door if you get water out the line that means your line inside door is frozen 2 if you don't get water that means your water reservour is frozen so to solve problem cheapest way is to derost it by unpluging it for maybe 2 days and if it was frozen it should go back to normal and this time keep your temps in right settings refrigerator section at 37% and freezer from 0 to 4 % at all times that will keep lines from freezing

Your unit has infered sensors on the frezzer left and right walls. There is a diagnostic test sheet brown in color in your kick plate.All you have to do is open frezzer door look on the right sensor it should blink twice followed by a 1-2 sec delay,if that is good press in flapper door on right sensor do not block path of infered beam you will not see a beam its invisable.Once you hold in flapper on right sensor the led should be solid.If solid optics are good if not solid led replace optic sensors

SOURCE: water trickles out the door dispenser.

You might make sure that you don't have any air in your system. I am having a similar problem, that was one thing that a repair guy suggested to me for my dripping (that is not my issue however) I tend to think you may have too much pressure in the system. However I am no expert I am just speaking from my own issues (mine is still not fixed either)
Good luck though

Inside filter water dispenser suddenly stopped working. New filter removed and no working with or without filter . Water line is fine. Ice maker works.


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. Covering the opening with a blanket will prevent the loss of cold in the freezer. . GE makes a heater that will prevent this from happening again. The part number for this heater is WR49X10173.

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

Refrigerator dispenses ice, but does not dispense water?


Unfortunately, the housing that the water filter fits into is also the housing for the solenoid controlled water valve, and that is the most likely failure item.

My Whirlpool refrigerator Model # ED5RHEXNL00 Ice maker broken


Hello. Thanks for choosing fixya! The most common cause for your problem is that someone accidentally raised the wire in the icemaker area that turns it off. Check that first if the wire is up, push it down and within a few hours you will have new ice. The second most common problem is that the cubes in the mold got stuck in there. the fix is to use a blow dryer to free them up, then dry out the mold and spray some PAM cooking spray in to the mold to lubricate it. The final possibliity is that there is ice in the water supply line that feeds your ice maker. Once again get out the blow dryer and thaw that ice so that the water flows once again. good luck with it. regards, joe

My whirlpool suddenly stopped dispensing water.


most fridges stop dispensing water when you open the door. Find the door switch and make sure fridge interior light goes on/off when you manually press door switch. This would show you that the door switch was faulty.

If the water connection to the appliance is one of those watts flood-safe water lines, it may have stuck shut. I've seen this happen when the house water pressure is too high.

Does it still make ice?

If so, then the water connection is good, and either the switch in the water dispenser has failed or the water shutoff valve for the water dispenser has gone bad.

Some models have a problem with the water line getting frozen, such that simply leaving the light on in the water dispenser compartment overnight and/or manually defrosting the unit can get it working again.

The water dispenser has stopped working!!!


could be a water solenoid problem (at the back portion where water from the sink enters ), or a micro switch in the dispenser area problem.

also, check if u have a water filter. could be clogged already.

tnx 4 using fixya,
