Whirlpool Conquest Side-by-Side not dispensing water

Our Conquest Side by Side w/ UltraEase Plus Water Filtration System & ice/water dispenser unit in the door quit dispensing water today. We thought it might have something to do with the filter since we noticed that the "time to change" light was red (not sure for how long). But even after replacing the filter, still no water. Oh, & the old filter was extremely difficult to get out, almost like it was stuck in there w/ lots of pressure. Ice seems to be working, at least for now. Please help!!! The hottest days of the summer are here with 100+ degree days & no end in sight. THANKS!!!

    Diagnosis -- a (manufacturing?) defect that caused the inner switch to break loose & drop to the point where it no longer was making contact with the door dispenser lever. Superglue to the rescue, for now.........

SOURCE: whirlpool ultraease warm on left side, dispenses warm water

not dangerous, i would recommend vacuuming coils under and behind refrig, make sure the fan behind the unit( cooling for compressor) is running full speed. the water is probably "warmer" then usual because the waterline runs across the bottom of the refrig, which appears to be overheating as it is. this should rectify your issue

SOURCE: my fridge is leaking water from the freezer

Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

SOURCE: Filter for UltraEase water filtration system?

This may not be the problem now but by the sound of the malfunctioning water lines etc., it could be in the future. The start device on some models of refridgerator for maytag and whirlpool have been recalled. If your appliance was manufactured in the last 5-10 years you may be having an issue with this component. Mine recently caught on fire at this device that is located near the compressor. If you would like to be a part of the petition for a recall on this appliance contact me at jboooor@hotmail.com

I purchased a new whirlpool conquest and have had on for two days. i have water coming out of the water dispenser but still no ice production. There is no water in the chute leading to the ice maker. ...


Maybe it won't call for water until it goes through the cycle. Try putting water in the ice mold and see if it starts working when it freezes and dumps the ice. Make sure the water line is open by swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then the water dispenser will send water to the ice maker and you'll know the valve and line works.

Whirlpool ultraease refrigerator (ED7FHG) making water sounds, and drips water onto steel pan in bottom rear of freezer side. Purchased new. This is an obvious change. Problem?


You have a water leak somewhere (I'm assuming this water sound is constant). If not write me back for other possible solutions.

The only place water comes into the freezer is for an ice maker or a door water dispenser. Check around the ice maker for a leak. If there is a water dispenser in the door then check the piping to it also.

There is a drain in the bottom of the freezer compartment which is there so when the frost is melted by the defrost heaters, it has somewhere to go. This drain drains into the "drip pan" (or condensate pan) in the bottom of the unit. Here the water will sit until it is evaporated into the air.

If this helps you, please select YES to the first two ratings questions. Thank you, and Good Luck.

"pipe hammer" from water line to in door ice/water dispenser


try to turn down the valve that feeds your refrigerator water inlet to see if that can help. It's most likely that you have too much water pressure feeding the unit and the valve is having a hard time closing off the flow of water. Good luck and have a Happy New Year.

In door ice dispenser does not work but the water dispenser does.


check to make sure there is water or ice in your ice maker tray. If none then problem is usually a water supply issue to the ice maker. Behind the frig are the water supply inlet valves. One is for the water dispenser in the door. THe other is for the ice maker. However when one goes bad they both are replaced as one unit. Also Check position of fingers in ice maker. If not in a vertical position then try to reset the ice maker unit and worse comes to worse, replace it with a new one.

External water dispenser on Whirlpool Conquest model GS6SHAXKS01


Try this first. In the inlet side( where the little water line comes in) there is a small screen where the water is hooked up. Shut off the water and unhook the water line. there should be a small screen to keep out particles from entering your ice make/ water dispenser. See if that screen is plugged. If so clean the screen. you can put it in vinager over night if you want. It will help clean it.

Ice and water dispenser


Has someone pressed the lock button on the front of the fridge just above the dispenser, next to the crushed & not crushed ice button, if so there is also an unlock button next to it.
