Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

When I hooked up our Frigidaire water, I noticed it leaked water from the elbow joint when we dispensed water; no leaks occur otherwise. I replaced the elbow joint, but the same problem exists. I'm stumped. Thanks - Steve

Leaking water dispenser


Sounds like the water valve isn't seating properly, so a small amount of water gets by causing the leak. Replace the dual water valve.

Water leaking from under Frigidaire fridge


Hello - There are many reason for this issue to occur, for example the refrigerator could have a crack in the defrost pan, a defrost drain line blockage, a leak from the water supply line for the dispenser or ice maker, but most cases water leaking inside and draining through the refrigerator cabinet. Try confirming that the vales are tightened. If the connection is still leaking, turn of the water supply line to the water valve and take the connection apart. You can try using Teflon tape when retightening the connection to ensure a good seal. If these suggestions prove to be ineffective contact a professional to move forward accurately.

Noticed that our frigidaire crown series front loader washer has been leaking while wash cycle is going. Leaks occur at two places: from the bottom side of the door and also from the detergent dispenser...


Well from what ive seen the detergent dispenser will usually leak due to an excess build-up of fabric softener. If you remove the drawer and look up at the top of the dispenser you will see numerous small holes. If you see moldy gunk its fabric softener residue. This usually restricts the water coming into the dispenser causing it to "shoot out" in random directions. To correct the problem you can take a putty knife and scrape off the visible build-up then take a piece of wire or a pipe cleaner and stick it into the individual holes and clear them out one by one.

If you feel confident you could go as far as removing the top panel and the will be one access screw from the front panel that you can see and the dispenser can be removed. Be sure to disconnect the hose that hooks into it (it can be hard to remove and put back on) but then you could actually rinse it out, which is what I usually do.

If your leaking from the bottom side of the door its usually the way the water drips down from the dispenser or just a few drops of water from opening the door. Its common to see a water residue streak at 6 o'clock right under the door.

Hope this helps _MJ_

Water leaking out the bottome of the disposal.


Check WHERE the water is coming from... tie paper towels around the fittings... at the top of the elbow that comes out of the side of the disposal and points down, just below the compression nut where the vertical part of the elbow enters the P-Trap, below the nut on the other side of the P-Trap, below the nut on the bottom of the elbow where the vertical part of the P-Trap goes horizontal. DRY off the bottom of the cabinet and put a dry paper towel down...
NOW, run the water, get a good flashlight and see exactly where the water is coming from (the paper towels tied around the pipes will help you see which compression fitting is leaking) if the water is not coming from one of the joints, and is coming from the actual disposer housing, that housing may be cracked and need to be replaced. Otherwise, if you can find the compression fitting that is loose and leaking, tighten it. If that doesn't work, you may need to replace the compression ring (plastic washer) which you can buy at any HW store.

Side by side gallery ...water leak


  • it sounds like the water valve is not closing fast enough.
  •  this will cause the ice-maker to overflow a little.
  •  your ice-maker may have an adjustment on it to control how long it keeps the water valve on. 
  • it should be a screw with a + and - sing on it. it may be under the ice-maker plastic cover.
  • if it keeps doing it then you may need a new water valve.

Whirlpool dishwasher leaks everywhere


CHECK YOUR HOSES FOR CRACKS. BE SURE THEY ARE ATTACHED SECURELY TO THE PUMP OULET.
THERE IS ALSO A BLACK HOSE FROM THE VALVE THAT GOES UP THE LEFT SIDE TO A VACUUM BREAK ON THE SIDE OF THE TUB. BE SURE THE HOSE HASN'T BEEN DAMAGED OR DISCONNECTED. IF THERE IS SUFFICIENT SUPPLY HOSE, PULL THE DISHWASHER OUT OF IT'S INSTALLATION AND TURN IT ON. WATCH FOR WATER DRIPPING ON THE FLOOR AND TRACE IT BACK TO FIND THE PROBLEM.
