Kenmore elite, can hear water running for ice maker constantly as of yesterday

Well if the water was constantly running into the icemaker, it would be consequently over filling and spilling out through the unit doors onto your floor. The icemaker can be making a whirling sound, which typically means the ejector arm is stuck, most likely due to a failed thermostat or heater in the ice maker itself. If the water valve is stuck and truly is spilling everwhere in your unit, the problem could be caused by a stuck module contact in the ice maker, or a defective water valve. I guess the best thing to do is to isolate the problem, define where exactly you are hearing the noise. Icemaker assembly, or water valve? If the water valve is sticking open, identify which side of the water valve solonoid is making noise, then check the incoming line voltage to the unit with a meter. If there is 110v approximately coming into the valve, replace the ice maker module. If there is no voltage coming into the unit but it remains on, turn off the water supply and replace the valve. Some high end refrigerators use a relay board to activate the water valve.. in this case you'll have to identify the correct relay for the water valve and make sure that its not sticking closed or malfunctioning, if this is truly your problem with the unit.

The washing machine is overfilling the water?

A defect in the water-inlet valve .The water inlet valve is the device which allows the water in the machine when the machine is turned on.but if the valve is faulty then it will not stop water to the machine even when its turned the washing machine overfills with water.
The valve is located at the back of the washer, and it will have water hoses hooked up to the back of it. Shut off the supply of water to your washer. Disconnect both hoses at the back of the washer. Before removing or checking the need to replace the valve if its faulty. If the water -inlet valve is checked OK.Then the other possibility to check out is the Water-level switch.The Water-level switch is the part that senses the water in the tub.if the water reaches to its required command the water supply to stop.But if the switch is faulty then it will not sense the water and water keeps on filling and at last water overfills due to Water-level switch not working properly. The Water-level switch is located at the bottom of the outer tub in the washing machine. This will help.Thanks.

Water flows constantly during the spin cycle

Servicing Water Inlet ValvesIf the washer won't fill or fills very slowly, if it overfills, or if the water is the wrong temperature, the water inlet valves could be faulty. These components are easy to locate and very easy to replace, at little cost. When you suspect an inlet valve is faulty, first check to make sure the water faucets are fully turned on and properly connected to the hot and cold inlets of the valves. Then check the screens in the valves; if they're clogged, clean or replace them. If water doesn't enter the tub, set the temperature control to the HOT setting. If there is no water, set the control to the WARM setting. If all that comes out is cold water, the hot-water inlet valve is faulty. Reverse the procedure to test the cold-water valve, setting the control first on COLD and then on WARM. If the tub overfills, unplug the washer. If water still flows into the tub, the valve is stuck open. In any of these cases, the valves should probably be replaced.

Today, dishwasher started overfilling, and spilling water onto the floor. We turned off the water supply and let the dishwasher finish its cycle, turned on the water, started another cycle and it began to...


Thanks for using FixYa. If the dishwasher is overfilling it’s caused because of water-inlet valve going bad. This valve is usually at the bottom left or right of the dishwasher, behind the lower access panel. It's the device with the main water line from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it. If the water-inlet valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

After the ice maker fills up with water more water spills out of it and freezes all the ice cubes together

If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.

If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.

When ice maker fills the water spills over edge of ice tray and down into ice storege bin. This creates large ice clumps that that jam unit. Is there a water pressure regulator that I can turn down...

Good day,
No pressure regulator. When the ice maker goes thru a harvest, at the end, it turns on the water valve for 7 seconds, after which the valve must shut off smartly.

The usual cause, is the valve in the rear back of the machine contunues to weep for a while, causing an overfill situation.
Replacing the valve is the only known solution.
This is based on the fact it worked propery at one time, and your not connected to a well, which has a regulator, that is set too high.

Thank you for using FixYa

Icemaker drips after refill

Good day,
The ice maker has a switch internal, that turns the water valve in the bottom rear of the machine on for 7 seconds after it harvests a batch.
That valve must close smartly, otherwise it will cause the cavity of the ice maker to overfill, and cause it to overfill.
If it does harvest cubes, then that is your problem. Replace the water valve. It's a very common problem.

My duet front loader will fill with a large

there are two water valves above the soap drawer, that are sping loaded to stay shut when power is off. if the water pressure to the machine has increased, sat due to an increase in main pressure from the water board fixing a leek further up the supply, then this could force open the valves. try turning the stop valves at the inlet pipe end, away from the machine, down a quarter turn and see if this stops it.

Maytag ice maker will not release cubes

Sounds like it has a " seeping " water valve . Only thing to do is replace the water inlet valve . There is a certain amount of water to go into icemaker at fill . A seeping valve will let water continually drip into icemaker , making large cubes which icemaker cannot dump . A larger amount of seeping , will overfill the icemaker , and drip into the freezer and floor .

Emptying resivoir?

If you shut off the right valve, water to the frige will be cut off. The dispensor may have a small spurt left from the pressure in the lines but it should quickly stop. No water will leak out the back valves since they are shut. Some water from the defrost cycles may be in the lower catch pan by the compressor but that's about it. If you have water off and can still get a full glass out the dispensor... then you don't have the correct valve turned off. Usually, there is a cut off valve in the wall just behind the refer to turn off the water. If you disconnect the hose once water valve is off only the water in the line will drain.
