Refrigerator Water Dispenser Leaks?
Refrigerator Water Dispenser Leaks show that the refrigerator's water system has a problem. To fix this problem, open the filter compartment and pull out the filter and push it back in so that it is secure in place. Push compartment cover until it clicks.
Well, there is no "motor" for the water dispenser, only a solenoid valve. However, there could still be a problem with the solenoid even if you do hear it when its energized. Hearing it make a noise does not mean its working properly.
Your water line could
be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line under the unit before it
goes into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if it
comes out there. If it does leave the door open
till it thaws disconnect
the line to the water dispenser at the water inlet valve on the back where the
water supply comes in and try the dispenser. if you hear the valve work but
water doesn't come out, the valve is bad. If you don't hear the valve, the
dispenser switch is bad.
I made the repairs by the seat of my pants and --yes, it's all fixed now. It sure would've been easier if I could've removed the face plate to the control panel to get access to the problem underneath. I hope I solved your other user's problem with the water dispenser.
check the mirco-switches behind the panel at the dispenser section. basically, when you depress the lever for water or ice, those levers make contact with a switch, and the switch turns on the ice dispenser motor. if the lever is pushed too hard, the switch can be knocked out of position. I had to re-position my ice switch with some duct tape.
