Connects at back of fridge. bottom left corner you will see a compression fitting, you need to connect to house hookup. If you had it delivered they should have hooked it up for you, unless you don't have a house hookup behind fridge. Then in this case you would need a plumber to run water to fridge. Or you can buy a kit at lowes or homedepot and do it yourself.

Whirlpool side by side, water-ice through the door. Icemaker and ice dispenser works fine, water dispenser does not. What could be wrong?


I think the solenoid that operates the water on and off is bad. After awhile calcium deposit builds up around the plunger causing it to stick. That's what happened with my refrigerator. Hope This Helps.

I have a whirlpool side by side refridgerator about a year or more ago the water dispenser stopped working and now the ice cube dispenser also stopped working it is no longer making ice into the container....


Your water line into the refrigerator is probably plugged up. First, check at the cut-off valve where the house water connects to the refrigerator water line. Mineral deposits often form in these small valves and can block the water flow.

The other possibility is a blocked water line within the refrigerator. Plastic weedeater line works very well to clean out these lines.

Water despenser


The water dispensing valve may not be functioning, if the valve buzzes or hums when the water dispenser is pressed the valve may be mechanically deficient, if there is no sound whatsoever the switch for the dispenser,the dispensing valve coil or its electrical connections may have failed.

In door ice dispenser does not work but the water dispenser does.


check to make sure there is water or ice in your ice maker tray. If none then problem is usually a water supply issue to the ice maker. Behind the frig are the water supply inlet valves. One is for the water dispenser in the door. THe other is for the ice maker. However when one goes bad they both are replaced as one unit. Also Check position of fingers in ice maker. If not in a vertical position then try to reset the ice maker unit and worse comes to worse, replace it with a new one.

Whirlpool ice dispenser not working


RECHECK THE CONNECTIONS AT THE UPPER DOOR HINGE WHERE THE ELECTRICAL WAS DISCONNECTED. MAKE SURE ALL THE PINS ARE STAYING IN THE PLUG WHEN YOU CONNECT THEM TOGETHER.
ALSO, BE SURE THE ICE BIN IS PROPERLY INSTALLED.
