Turn off the water supply valve to the machine. (( At the wall ))

Possible cause ::::: the water valve in the refrigerator is stuck open or the switch in the despensor is shorted. or if you have a control board it could be malfuctioning.


you can test the water valve by pulling the wires off the water valve and turning on the water supply valve and if it leaks again the water valve is bad. ((( Stuck open )))

This would be a more common fix (((( water valve ))))

Water dispenser wont shut-off


Check the solenoid valve is not stuck open. It lets water in, pushing cold water out, and if stuck will not shut off.. It may even have a broken spring, but that is quite unusual

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.

Kenmore refrigerator, has water dispensor on front, when you put the glass there to dispense it will not stop flowing, you have to bang the door shut


Sounds like the water activator switch is sticking. It may help to clean the area where the switch is including the hinge. Remove the dispenser cover by gently prying starting at the bottom going round and round a little at a time to prevent from breaking it. When it's off the screws will be exposed to access the other components.
Since shutting the door stops it the above is most probable but the water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in could be sticking.

The water dispenser leaks


The most likely reason for the leaking at the water dispenser is the dual water control valve on the back and near floor is leaking water while shut off. The only option is to replace the water control valve. Sea Breeze

No water coming out of dispenser


sound like a crud in the line somewhere. Shut the water off, remove the filter element, and blow air in the water dispenser. If that doesn't do it, remove the line after the shut off, and blow air in before the filter.

Thanks for using Fixya
Have a nice day!
