    my water dispenser won't work and my ice maker does?? What's this?

  • rverreos Aug 25, 2008

    My ice maker works, my water dispenser stopped dispensing water all of a sudden. I thought maybe it was due to hard water buildup so I cleansed it, but the water still doesn't come out so I came on here and read the solution offered. I am going to try it now and, hopefully, it will work for me.

    I have the same problem, I leave the door open for 1/2 hour and it works again. Not buying one of these again, I guess you get what you pay for at Home Depot.

Samsung side by side ice maker not working


You have 2 separate valves, 1 for the water dispenser and 1 for the ice maker. (otherwise your ice maker would overflow every time you got water from the dispenser and your dispenser would flow every time the ice maker went to refill.) They are fed from the same tubing.

The cube/crushed ice motor is completely separate from the ice maker itself and should have absolutely no bearing on the water flow.

You have narrowed down the problem quite nicely to the ice maker water valve. There is one more thing to check though, the connector. There should be a multi-contact connector from the ice maker to the back wall of the freezer, usually 6-9 wires. Pull that apart and check the cord side (ice maker side) for any corrosion. BE CAREFUL NOT TO TOUCH THE OTHER SIDE AS THERE IS LIVE 110V!!! If you don't see any corrosion, still try try disconnecting and reconnecting 5-10 times and see if that solves your problem. If you see corrosion, unplug the refrigerator before working on the back wall part of the connector. [This connector besides powering the ice maker also allows the ice maker to control the water valve which can't be inside the freezer]

LG LRSC21934 ice maker/water dispenser doesn't work


If your house water supply to the refrigerator is poor it is most likely the cause of the water dispenser and ice maker not working. If you hear the water valve humming when the water dispenser is depressed and no water is dispensed it is most likely poor or restricted water flow to the refrigerator.
If you live in an older home the water supply shutoff valve to the refrigerator is usually in the basement or under the kitchen sink. Many shutoff valves are called a saddle valve and the valve is secured onto a cold water pipe and as the valve is turned clockwise a pin punctures the water pipe allowing water to flow. Saddle valves often become clogged with minerals and can completely block water flow to the refrigerator,. If the valve is corroded on the outside it should be replaced. Ice maker installation kits are available at most hardware stores. Copper water line kits are preferred. Cost is under $25.00. If the Saddle valve is in good shape they can be taken apart and cleaned. Be sure to shut off the main house water and drain pipes before attempting to clean.
Newer homes may have a water box in the wall behind the refrigerator. Sometimes these can become clogged with mineral deposits as well.

Hope this helps.

My Whirlpool Gold Side by Side (counter depth) [model# GC3PHEXNS00] refrigerator stopped making ice. Water dispenser is still working, doesn't seem to be an obstruction in the line. What do I do?


Can be clogged water passing line or faulty water valve.But if you have already checked the water passing line and it seems clear, then its most probably the water valve.---------

The ice maker not working: ---

Its the problem of water inlet valve. It's a dual valve. This valve has two tubes in it. One for water dispenser and one for ice maker chamber. The one side of valve is working, but other side of the valve is not working. The valve is got stuck in one position

I have a GE model GSS201EPJWW side by side fridge. The ice maker makes ice but we can not get the dispenser to operate. At times the water will work but not cubed or crushed ice. What can be done to get...


Dispenser works with a motor which might be jammed. When you see the ice storage bin, there is a steel coil which rotates with the motor and ice falls down from the dispenser. See if the coil rotates at all and if so then the motor must be defective.

Our icemaker does not fill with water


The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

So the dispenser is getting water. Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

If the valves clicks but water doesn't get to ice maker the fill tube can be stopped up with ice.The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube.

Ice maker and now water dispenser does not work


Do you get water to the connector at the bottom of the freezer door ? if you do then the water pipe in the door is probably frozen - read new door ! if not then check thw electrical connector at the bottom of the freezer door as they have a habit of corroding.

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.
