Question about Kenmore 73502 / 73504 / 73509 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

Water Dispenser is slow

Hi we have a Kenmore Elite 73600 and the water comes out the door dispenser slower than I think it should be since it was new. I opened the saddle clamp valve more to see if it would help. It is still under warranty but I am hesitant to contact if it is something I can do with little effort. Does anyone know anything about any problems with the water flow. By the way the filter is not ready to be changed yet.

    Yes you were able to help!! Thank you very much. I tried a few other things first like changing the saddle clamp and putting a 1/4" hole in the copper line but no improvement. Changing the $47 filter fixed it right up and to think it was only 6 months old!!! Thanks again for your help, YOU are the GURU..

If you are saying that the filter is not ready to be changed yet because its not yet six months, you can be wrong. it is just a suggested length of time to change a filter but it is still dependent on the water flowing to the filter. if the filter is not that expensive then you can try replacing it or if you can monitor the pressure of the water coming to the ref then that would be a good solution. you can start fro there. if there is good pressure, there is a big chance that you have a bad filter. if the pressure is low, then there is your answer. i hope i was able to help.

Kenmore elite 106.44423603 ice/water dispenser housing - plastic broken off for ice door pin hinge. Any ideas for a fix?


Hi and thanks for using fixya!

There is actually a "kit" that replaces the hinge, housing for the hinge, dispenser door and bracket. Just be sure when you're taking everything apart you pay special attention to how it goes back together. Kit comes with metal bracket that will replace old housing. Now that I think about it the kit comes with instructions! Kit pt# 8201756 and you can purchase it here. Appliance Parts

Water dispenser does not work


Most likely you need a new water valve or water switch. If there is a click when you push a glass against the water dispenser, that is the solenoid opening. If no click it might need replacing. On mine, the water came out slower and slower; replacing the water inlet valve on the back near the bottom fixed it.

No water coming from water dispenser.


It is possible the water control valve for that dispenser has failed and will not open. This happens a lot for those and the ice maker valves. All you need is the model number for your refrigerator and that will look like this for Kenmore. 213.564897 for example. and I will help you find the correct part number. Sea Breeze

Hi i have a kenmore model #58585892.the problem:


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. If water does come out-
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.

Internal water dispenser stopped working


I lowered the temp on the freezer to 4 overnight, by morning water dispenser is working fine. I think that when we changed the temp to 7 (in order to make more ice ) it froze the water pipe going to the dispenser. I am going to keep both fridge and freezer at 5 ,and hope this will not happen again.

Water Despenser


Water inlet valve at back of unit may be partially clogged, no repairs on this part, unless it comes apart and has a stainless steel wire mesh strainer that can be cleaned ( not likely), only replacement. BpB

New Kenmore Elite ice dispenser not working but water is


Should be no longer than 24hrs. Is the freezer good and cold.. has to reach a certain temp before icemaker activates. Might take little longer if you put a lot of warm things in freezer or refrig. when you made the change. Is there any water or ice in the icemaker itself? Water may not be getting to icemaker call them back out if it dont work soon thats what warrantys for :0)
