Re: dripping water dispencer
Dripping problem is from 2 sources. Faulty water valve or faulty water connector behind refrigerator. If the dripping is constant and doesn't seem to end, then it's a faulty water valve. If the dripping stops after awhile, then the water connector is allowing air into the water line causing the dripping. Have that connection checked to make sure that it's securely in place.

It would seem a joint has come a bit loose from the heating and cooling cycle. put a drip pan under the leaking area( the drips would evaporate quickly), then next time you shut it down go through all the joints in the area with wrenches to find the loose joint.
If this unit has a solenoid for the water and one for the ice maker, they could be malfunctioning or blocked. Check filter first (if it has one) then check where the water enters the unit. There should be one or two solenoids to allow water to flow to each dispencer. They emit a "click" sound when activated. If not they will be faulty.
Hi just read your posting.The fault with your machine is a faulty water valve.1st turn off the cold tap to the machine and leave for a couple of hrs.If the dripping stops you have a faulty cold valve.If the dripping does not stop then turn off the hot tap and that should stop the leak.Either way to fix this fault a water valve must be replaced.Or you can stop the drip by just turning the taps off after the washing has finished.Hope this helps and please reply for further help if needed.
Unless you have another valve somewhere else, that is the only thing that could cause the problem. Have someone try the dispenser while you listen at the back and verify that the valve you replaced is the one the noise comes from when the dispenser is used. If it is, disconnect the line and watch to see if it is dripping. There could be sediment in the supply water that can stop the valve from closing. Low water pressure will also cause it to leak.
the pan is there to catch condensation from the compressor during the refridgeration cycle. the water build up to me indicates one of two things. Either the refrigerant level is low and it is freezing up then thawing, or if you have ice or water dispencer it could have a leak in the line. the only thing other than that is a leak in the magnetic door seal or other insulation causing condensation. hope this helps
you may want to check your water presuure if pressure is to low the valve in the back of the fride is not closing properly or the valve is defective to check for this you need to remove the electric solenoid behind the fride leave the water line installed disconect the output tubingif it drips replace the solenoid valve [email protected]
Hi!!! Yes you can fix it by installing an antisyphon device on your water line leading to the water dispenser..remember i've done this for many years repairing frigs and they all do this they all leak water out alittle bit..Good luck..
