    I have a Whirlpool 20RB D4 Fridge Freezer with exactly the same problem.

    It started dispensing water in bursts accompanied by the sound of the pump clicking off and on. If you power the whole F/F of and straight back on again it works for a while. The fault has now expanded to the F/F clicking for about 1 min usually after one of the doors has been opened.

    If you open one the doors while it is clicking then the clicking stops. With the door still open you can press the switch which operates when the door is closed and the clicking starts again. Anyone any ideas ?

    It would be better to have morre information on this such as is it a refriferator or is it a full freezer unit. What make is it and how old and if it is a sise by side if ref. Some units, particuarly Maytag have bad boards on them, the maytag usually is the main control board on the back of the unit. if a frigidaire then most likely the dispenser boards.

Hi, this problem IS caused by components that have failed in the rear module! Fact!
There are a few people that sell the kits to repair them on a big auction site.
Hope this helps

OK, we'll try this again. If it is whirlpool SxS - Where is the clickikn coming from, the dispenser or is it from the rear of the unit? Is the water coming out when you push the lever for water or is it constant? Also, once again how old is the unit? And see if you can get the full model number- it usually starts with several letters then a couple of numbers and then more letters.
The clicking you hear may be the water valve and may cause the water to spurt. The other possibility is the saddle vale which is on your house plunbing is getting blocked and needs to be replaced . Also does this unit have a filter? It could be getting blocked.

We get clicking noises when water is dispensed. also the fridge compartment is not cold at all - the freezer is working (at the moment). model SB540W/SAL2027GBB. Service code 85951051500 / 110738001758....


the clicking sound is normal it sounds like valve operating or you may have the water pressure up to hgh for the unit. for your second problem is the fan operating inthe fridge this stops the cold air to transfer from the freezer, also check the operation of the damper this is the flap the controls the amount of air into the fridge this is uasualy controled by a by metalic thermostat or motor. thirdly which mostly common is the defrost heater is not working signs are frozer evaperator in freezer and air duct the checks are defrost timer, heater element terminatinion thermostat and someunits have thermofuses goodluck

Whirlpool GR2FHTXVQ00 fridge. Water dispenser


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.
The valve can leak because of sediment in the water preventing it from closing or low water pressure.

You can thaw out the fill tube and replace the inlet valves.

My whirlpool american fridge freezers water dispenser is continually dripping what can I do to resolve this problem


Replace the water inlet valve , the piece that the wall water line connects to on the refrig .. Something like a grain of sand , piece of dirt etc , is caught in the rubber bellows , not letting the valve close completely . This will cause a scratch , which will collect anything else that comes thru , so cleaning it out will not work . ( it won't remove the scratch ) .

Floating bits in Whirlpool fridge-freezer crushed ice water


Ice cubes freeze from the outside, so the center of the cube is the last to freeze. Ice is pure water, only H 2 O, so as the ice cube freezes, all of the dissolved minerals are pushed to the center. Near the end of the freezing, there isn't much water left in the center of the cube, so these minerals become very concentrated, and they form the "white stuff" – the technical name is precipitate. The hardness minerals that cause the "white stuff" are not toxic.

Whirlpool 20RB D4 Fridge Freezer clicking


Hi the reason for your noise coming from the fridge freezer is the plastic that is used in the design of your product is of a low quailty which reacts to the temp change and then as they get cold again they start to crack inside the frigde! Nothing to worrry about........
Hope this helps.....
