Hi harry,

the valve for the icemaker is a dual action valve, which means that it has a solenoid, which causes it to fail. in some cases, you may have to just replace the solenoid but in most, you'll have to replace the valve itself.

Water leak on floor under refrigerator


The line going into the dispenser is a 5/16 line. You'll have to remove the front of the dispenser on the door to get access to the line to unclip it. Once you have that done you can pull the line out from the bottom. At this point there are a variety of different unions, compression fittings, etc. to splice the line. After that you just feed the line back through the bottom of the door, clip it back in place, put the dispenser back together and your done.

Water leaking from top rear left of refrigerator and dripping on coil line in the back of unit. Inside is dry and no water on floor yet. Is it the ice maker connection? If so how do I access it?


You will have to remove the ice maker , to have access to the fill tube . Only 3 screws , hold the ice maker on . After removing , make sure the tube is not frozen inside , and that it is securely , pushed inside the fill tube holder . If frozen inside , then the water valve behind the refrig , where the wall water line connects to , on the refrig , will need replaced also , due to " seeping " , not closing completely , after filling .

Water pouring from waterdispenser in side by side refrig


Dispenser leaking----Probably replace the water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in. Disconnect the water line to the dispenser there and see if it keeps dripping when you try the dispenser

Ed25rfxfw01 whirlpool fridge water dispenser ...I have a slow drip from the dispenser hose. I assume I need a new water inlet valve. How do I access the inlet valve for replacing?


It should be on the right hand side in the back take off the compressor cover on the back should be 8 or so 1/4 screws nutdriver type and then two more hold on the water valve. If you have a RO system hooked up to refrig you may need to change the filters on the ro or just change the filter on the refrig. those two will also cause the water to drip thru the valve allowing it to drip on the front

When use water dispeser water comes out from behind the refridge


no real "schematic" available showing how hte water lines are run, but illtell you that they start at teh rear of machine,incoming water, form there they travel to the water filter and into an opening under the refrig side. can be viewed by removing hte lower crisper(theres a holding tank) from ht tank goes back out nad heads for the door assy, so a simple trace of water lins will determine point of leak, usually a fiting or hte water lineitself has dry-rotted, in which case needs replacing, hter are no "hidden" lines with refrig, ohter then within the freezer door,and even that can be removed and replaced if ness.

Water dispenser drips after filling glass.


sounmds like you have air trapped in tothe line( formiong pressure behind the line whe nnot in use forcing water drops out, remove the crisper in the refrig campartmant and look for the holding tank either there an air bubble trapped in ther or you havea small leak allowing air inot the system, usually happen right after replacing the filter, instraed of trying to rnn 5 secs on 5 secs off, try with a bigger contaienr to allow constantly running for longer periods of time to hopefully force out the air bubble

Water leak where hose meets refrigerator connector


I had a similar problem several years ago with water leaking on the floor at behind the fridge. Turned out to be the gasket at a connection the same size as a garden hose at the water valve, so I used a garden hose washer and that did the trick. That was on a Whirlpool vintage about 1990. Can't say what the model was.
