Question about Whirlpool 25.4 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator w/Thru-the-Door Ice & Water - Satina Stainless-Look

Open Question

I have an IKEA version of the Whirlpool side by side (2010) model. The water dispenser decides about every two weeks or so to simply stop dispensing water. After about a week or two goes by it suddenly comes back to life and works as though nothing was ever wrong. I have changed out the water valves unplugged and checked the computer, looked at he hardwired relays but have not tested them. Unplugged the refrigerator for times and plugged it back in, removed reinstalled the filter cartridge all to no avail. What could be going on here. When I push the dispenser it will send a signal to the valve, you can here it click on but no water dispensed. I swapped buttons behind the levers to see if it was a faulty switch but no change. The ice dispenser works flawlessly. I'm stumped???

    Anyone in my situation with this refrigerator I have found that IT IS ABSOLUTELY a FROZEN water line inside the door. I had gone through everything to fix this over the last four months and was going crazy. It happened yet again but this time I raised the freezer temp to its warmest setting and the spout began dripping a day or two later and runs smoothly again. Problem diagnosed correctly but bad Whirlpool design. I'm going to reroute the water line or insulate it in the door better.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: whirlpool refrigerator ice dispenser no longer workds

Ok, I show parts that are available for that model, sounds like the control board is defective for your dispenser, or possibly the Ice maker control board. It also could be a break in the wiring or the control itself. Below is a break down for those parts, wiring and the control behind the push to dispense ice or water. Hope it is not that control because some places don't provide that part. Now if it's a connection problem that we can find, I will do mu best to help you solve this.Could you insure the model number is correct as this is very important? appliancepartsse@yahoo.com

The water dispenser on 2014 Ikea (whirlpool) refrigerator stops working at random times.


I would replace the water inlet solenoid valve, that solenoid valve is what allows water to flow on demand. The valve is likely full of mineral deposits and this causes it stick closed at times.

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.

My whirlpool suddenly stopped dispensing water.


most fridges stop dispensing water when you open the door. Find the door switch and make sure fridge interior light goes on/off when you manually press door switch. This would show you that the door switch was faulty.

If the water connection to the appliance is one of those watts flood-safe water lines, it may have stuck shut. I've seen this happen when the house water pressure is too high.

Does it still make ice?

If so, then the water connection is good, and either the switch in the water dispenser has failed or the water shutoff valve for the water dispenser has gone bad.

Some models have a problem with the water line getting frozen, such that simply leaving the light on in the water dispenser compartment overnight and/or manually defrosting the unit can get it working again.

The water dispenser has stopped working!!!


could be a water solenoid problem (at the back portion where water from the sink enters ), or a micro switch in the dispenser area problem.

also, check if u have a water filter. could be clogged already.

Whirlpool refrigerator water dispenser not working


My older whirlpool side by side refrigerator has stopped dispensing water. The icemaker works fine, and I have adjusted the temperature a week ago so I don't believe the line is frozen. I do not hear any noise when the dispenser is pushed down, and feel that is where the problem is. The line is clear on the bottom of the fridge behind the kick plate, but water does not come out freely when I disconnect the couplings...
Any advice?
