Most likely the problem is related to a defective water control valve on the dispenser side of the valve. If your model is the ED2FHEXN it will use the=> W10408179 Water Inlet Valve
You should always turn the water supply off before removing the filter cartridge just to insure less water clean up should a water valve be stuck open. At this point I still believe that the water control valve is at fault for not allowing water flow to the dispenser. Here is a parts manual=> ED2FHEXN Parts Manualand here is a link to your ED2FHEXN User Manual You may get some water flow spraying should there be a valve stuck open but that is not the cause of you not getting water to the dispenser. Your ice maker is still working right? I will be here should you have questions or comments, Thanks Sea Breeze
1. A cracked plastic tube. These will leak whenever there's a call for water - either the chilled water dispenser, or re-filling the icemaker tray (two seperate tubes). Pay particular attention to anywhere the tubes are clamped to the chassis; anywhere they're routed near or under the refrigeration unit; and near the solenoid valve - especially if there's a tight loop in the tube there.
2. A bad (leaking) connection where one of the tubes exits the water valve. Again, these will leak whenever the valve is activated.
Those plastic tubes don't last forever. I've replaced many of them for the same symptoms. They're known to simply deteriorate with age.
Manuf's make good money selling replacement tubing kits.
Checckwater pressure.The 1/4" water supply line should deliver at least 9 ounces of water in 5 seconds. If not, the water pressure is low.
Make sure the dispenser is notlocked. Some models have a lock feature that deactivates the dispenser andcontrol buttons. The lock button is located on the dispenser front cover.This feature controls unintentional dispensing. Press the"Unlock" or "Locked" button to reactivate the dispenser andallow dispenser function. You may need to hold the button for2 to 3 seconds.
A clogged or incorrectly installedwater filter will reduce the water flow to the water dispenser. Check for aproblem with the filter by removing the filter and operating the dispenser. Ifwater begins to flow, then the filter is either clogged or incorrectlyinstalled. A clogged filter will need to be replaced. Thanks.
If your fridge has a water filter, you should change it every 3 months. An old filter can cause slow flow problems.
But it will never come out as fast as the kitchen sink. Depending on the location of your fridge, you have 10 to 25 feet of 1/4" pipe between your water glass and the high-flow plumbing, and water just won't move very fast through that.
Does your fridge have a inline water filter or one inside the fridge? If so, try replacing the wate filter, as it could be obstructed and old and causing the loss of water flow.
It's a good idea to keep track of the date when any filter is installed so you can replace it before it losses it ability to filter properly, both from a issue of conveinence and for health reasons.
A dirty, old filter can allow some nasty contaminants to pass through after a fixed amount of time or set amount of water has passed through it.
If there is no filter, you might have to replace the water inlet valve that supplys water to the fridge. Just be sure to turn of the water line the fridge is connected to, before servicing the water supply valve that supplies the fridge.
Yes, it could be the water filter. Also check to make sure the water is turned on and that any lines to the refrigerator aren't kinked or crushed somewhere. It's also possible that you will not be making any ice as well if your appliance has an ice maker
GSH25JSTASS -- I have a one year old ref..Same problem..Ice comes fine, no water. Changed filter..defrosted Freezer compartment. Kept the light ON for a couple of days, .used compressed air to check water tube between water disp to bottom of the freezer. Not frozen...
