    the water dispenser has started to drip 50 times or so after you dispense some water.
    what would be causing this ?

  • crdbgorr Dec 31, 2010


    on the GE site they show three different valves

    do you know which one is the fill valve ?

    WATER VALVE ASM 799 WR57X10024


    WATER VALVE ASM 795 WR57X1023

Poor or low water pressure can allow the fill valve to stay open and bleed a little water through all the time, bad fill valve, water tank/resevoir breathing( flexing ) and some water is being pushed out are -some- common trouble makers.

The fill valve has one entrance and 2 exits, disconnect the chilled water exit ( 5/16 tubing ) to see if water is dribbling past the fill valve all the time, causing that drip. Low water pressure to the fill or a bad fill valve can do this.

If that checks ok....

No pic Water tank-reservour

....the chilled water tank is likely flexing and pushing out the water drip = new tank time,the tank is behind the lower crispers in the FF section.

One problem that is becoming more prevalent is this sort of issue. More and more people are installing under-the-sink "reverse osmosis" water filtration units. These do not provide sufficient pressure to keep the water valves closed (Jeff touched on this earlier) - a typical refrigerator water valve needs about 30 psi for proper closure. Your refrigerator needs to be connected to mains water.

I have also been on the ge site and they are also suggesting to replace the water valve first before doing anything else if you are looking for the part goto go under contact us there is a 1800 number this is the cheapest appliance parts place that i have found if you have any further questions please message me back and please remember when our chat is concluded to rank how this opinion has helped Thanks again

You don't say how long you have had the fridge but i would guess that you have had it some time and this problem has emerged recently.

If this is the case,then the tap may have something stuck in the seal..

I don't know your machine but other similar problems have been resolved by removing the tap and cleaning. (If there is anything in the outlet, then this could be the cause of your problem).

Water dispenser drips sometimes after filling a cup with water. Does not happen every time. If not addressed, the drip continues indefinitely. To stop the drip, I use my index finger to give a good poke...

When water leaks from the dispenser like this it will be caused by a defective water control valve that will not shut properly when off. The leaking water is the same as a leaking faucet. The KSCS25IN uses a=> W10247725-Water Control Valve or HERE

The water keeps dripping from the water dispenser how do I get it to stop

Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out of it and see if you have a slow drip. Try the dispenser to see if it's just drips after use.

Very slow drip from water dispenser. How do I fix

Good day,
A slow continues drip, but still dispenses O.K. is caused by the dual water valve on the bottom rear of the machine not closing completely.
Only fix is replacing the water valve assembly.

Kitchenaid model ksrs25ilss02 water filter

Are you saying water is dripping out the ice dispenser or the water dispenser, a water filter would have nothing to do with this, it only filters water, it does not pump water nor does it shut it off. If water
is dripping from the ice dispenser, it is because the rubber gasket
is bad on the flap that seals after ice is dispensed. If water is dripping
from the water dispenser, it is the shut off for the water, you can put a glass under it and push for water a few times,on and off and see if this makes it stop, if not you would need to have this replaced. Any questions please post back.

Water dripps

I realize this is an old answer, but I'm experiencing the same problem and found what I hope is a much simpler fix:
This is a Youtube video which explains how air trapped in the water line can cause a drip from the dispenser. Apparently, allowing a gallon of water to flow continuously through the dispenser should...uh...dispense with the problem!
Hope this helps you, and me!

Whirlpool side-by-side refrigerator - 2 problems

I would suggest that you get a certified person to come out and look at it you very well could have bent the doors in the move.

but... if you want to do it yourself.
click here for a walkthrough

for your drip:
Flush air from the water system the first time it is used and after replacing the filter. Air trapped in the water line or filter may slowly travel through the coiled water reservoir to the dispenser, pushing any water ahead of it. This can cause the dispenser to drip. Water needs to completely fill the lines for all air to be cleared.
  • Use a sturdy container to press and hold the water dispenser bar for 5 seconds, then release it for 5 seconds. Repeat until the water begins to flow. Once the water begins to flow, continue pressing and releasing the dispenser bar (5 seconds on, 5 seconds off) for an additional 2 minutes. Repeat if dripping starts again because air can re-enter from the water supply.
  • As air is cleared from the system, water may spurt from the water dispenser.
  • Make sure the refrigerator is connected to a cold water supply.
One or two drops of water immediately after dispensing is normal. It may be necessary to hold the container under the dispenser for 2 to 3 seconds after releasing the dispenser lever.

Water dripping from the water dispenser on freezer

If the water is dripping from the dispenser tube, you need a water valve. The valve is not shutting off completely. Check to make sure water is not dripping from ice chute. If the chute door doesn't seal off you will get moisture there and it will also frost up the ice chute.
