RE: whirlpool refrigerator side by side ED25RFXFW01. I accidentally severed the water line inside the freezer door. How do I get to it? It appears that the shelves and insulation are glued to the door,...


The water line can be replaced by removing the dispenser cover and disconnecting the tubing and then pull the old line down from the bottom hinge area. once out, you can install your new line back up into the place it came out of. it goes through a channel inside the door. once back up in dispenser area..connect back to nozzle. the hose under freezer door needs to be connected as well...

GE gss22sgrf sidebyside water dispenser does not work, ice does


these unit have a problem with the water line freezing inside the freezer door. ge makes a tape style heater that goes inside the dispenser area to give just enough heat to keep it from freezing the water line.
you can try to change the freezer settings, warmer, clean the coils at the back of the unit and leave the freezer door open for 20-30 minute to allow the door to warm up and that will be a temporary fix to allow water to flow until you can get the heater kit.

Water leaking from bottom of fridge. Hissing noises coming from inside. Trying to figure out how to disconnect water


There is usually a water cut off , behind the refrig , mounted on the wall , or , a cut off under the sink , connected to the cold water line ( with a small cut off valve ) .
The hissing noise , is usually associated with a hole or cracked water line . You can also try removing the ware filter , to see if the noise stops .
Would need more info , to have an idea where the water line is defective .

Water leaking


there should be a quick disconnect about 4 inches from the bottom of the door. look behind the toe kick. if it leaks from the disconnect try pushing the plastic lines into the disconnect. the disconnect is about 1.5 inches long and should have red or blue ends. to get the lines out you push the colored ends in while pulling the plastic line out, try cutting off the ends smooth and straight up and down and re-insert. if the water is coming out of the bottom of the door you need to replace the water line in the door.

to get the line out of the door. use a flat blade screwdriver to pry the dispenser cover off the door. there are two slots on the bottom of the dispenser facia. use a pen or something hard for a pivot point and use tape to protect door finish. push on the screwdriver until you think the plastic will break, then push a bit harder and it will pop off. now you can disconnect the facia and remove the screws holding the switches etc. disconnect the water line and pull it through the dispenser. to put the facia back on just hook the top and line it up and press the bottom back on.

Samsungrs21dcns water dispenser problem


just below the doors of the frig is a kick plate. remove the kick plate. on the left youll see a water line that goes into the freezer door. there is a connection for that hose just under the freezer. disconect the hose the press the water dispenser. if water comes out of the hose then the water line is frozen inside the door. you can use a hair dryer to warm up the dispener area both from the front and from the back, inside the freezer, it will take about 30 min to defrost. but, if you get no water from that hose then you need a new water valve. more than likely its frozen in the door. thats common on ge models
