FRIGIDAIRE FRS26ZSG - WATER DISPENSER

The unit shoots water out of the water dispenser sporadically. It seems to coincide with what should be a fill cycle for the ice maker. Is something diconnected and causing "ice water" to become "drinking water" ??
Please help before my wife makes me buy a new refrigerator !!!!

This only happens when the ice maker is being filled? Does it seem like excessive pressure? Is the water volume still the same? The first thing to try is, just to do a full defrost of the unit and see if that de-ices the device. You may have a buildup in the tube or the water pump may be the problem. When the ice maker isn't filling though, is the water dispenser normal or is something still wrong with it?

Please get back to me on this and tell me what you have tried.

good luck

Is there an overflow module that connects the icemaker to the water dispenser? If you are still getting ice, it is probably just extra water.

Frigidaire washing machine fabric softner will not dispense out


Hello - There are several things that could cause the fabric softener to not dispense into the washer. Are you sure the liquid in the dispenser after the wash is fabric softener? If it is fabric softener, the solenoid that lets the water into the dispenser is not working. This solenoid is located on the back of the dispenser. It only gets voltage during the dispense time and fills the fabric softener dispenser with water. The fabric softener dispenser fills while the washer is filling for the rinse cycle.

When the washer begins to fill for the rinse cycle, the fabric softener solenoid is energized and water flows into the fabric softener dispenser cup. When the cup is full the water siphons out and softener and water flow into the tub.

If the liquid in the fabric softener dispenser is pure softener you may need a technician to diagnose and repair the problem. The voltage will have to be tested to the softener solenoid and a volt meter is required.

If the liquid in the fabric softener dispenser is water you probably need to clean the dispenser cup. **** will build up in the siphon tube and stop the liquid from going into the washer tub. The incoming water will dilute the softener and overflow the dispenser cup and run into the tub. The instructions for cleaning the dispenser should be located on page 43 of the use and care guide that came with the washer.

If you don't have the use and care guide these instructions will help. Open the dispenser until it stops. In the left rear corner of the dispenser, there is a release that is labeled push. Press down on the push area and you can slide the dispenser drawer out.

Remove the insert from the bleach and fabric softener compartments. Clean the bottom of the insert and the bleach and fabric softener compartments. Reinstall the insert and put the drawer back inside the washer.

To test the siphon action slowly pour water into the fabric softener compartment. When the water level goes above the maximum line stop pouring. The water should all drain out.

Hope this information proves to be helpful however if it is ineffective please contact a professional to move forward accurately.

Water does not put water in tray drinking dispenser works good what can be the problem water supply hose is clear thanks


First check the water flow.Is the water flow running.If the water flow is blocked then no water will enter the dispenser.If water is running properly but its not entering the water dispenser then check the water tube,is it kinked or got loose or got blocked.But if water is running ok,and water tube is proper and not blocked or kinked.Also connected properly to its hose Then the possibility is water valve,this is at the back of the ice maker unit.There is a twin valve,which lets the water enter the ice dispenser and water dispensing unit.But if the valve is blocked from one side or faulty then it will not let the water to get dispensed.Also in some cases the ice gets clogged in the water fill tube and this creates the problem.If there is ice frost problem then you can use hair dryer to melt the ice collected in the water fill tube.But take care you unplug the unit from main power outlet before doing this.Its for safety reasons. If the valve is faulty then it has to be replaced.And you can get required parts from online sites like,sears parts direct or from repairclinic.com --------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Hello. Hollow cubes is caused when there is not enough water going into the ice cube molds. That said, since you have too much water going into the water dispenser I would suspect that the valve needs to be cleaned or possibly replaced. Joe

No water to ice maker


Be sure that the water supply is on, and that the plastic water hose is not kinked, blocked or frozen. Mine was twisted at the bottom left door hinge.Also, check the black microswitch behind the ice/water outlet. Mine was sticking. Just a couple bucks at any Electrical Supply distributor.
Hope this helps,

Frigidaire signaling water dispenser instead of ice maker


Sounds like the water solinoid valves are wired wrong.One activates The water dispenser.The other the ice maker.That, why every so often the water shoots out on the floor.The ice maker is telling the valve to open.
