Question about Refrigerators
Its defrosting and the drain is probably plugged keep door closed and unplug for a few hours your problem should clear up, there might be some water in the fridge and on the floor no need to panic if this does not work you might have to get a repair man to clean out the drain

To stop the dripping now, turn the water off.
The problem is there is either mineral caught in the seat of the dispenser valve, or the dispenser valve seat has a bad place in it. Removal and cleaning/replacement is required.

1.check if the fan inside the freezer is running
2. if ref runs none stop, defrost timer is out.
3. or it could be the high limit that paired in series with the defrost heater

could be a few things. fist, when you call for water, listen for a very faint "hum" noise, if you do hear that, it is either the solonoid on the valve, or the reserve tank in the frige froze. easy way to check. pull the frige out and un-plug from power. on the back of the unit is a cover on the bottom, remove cover. the valve is on the far right as your looking at it. it has 2 solonoids on it. there are two plastic water lines on the bottom of the valve, i believe the one on the left is for ice maker, and the right one goes to door dispenser. remove the water line going to the door dispenser and put a cup under the valve. plug in frige and call for water at the door for couple seconds, check to see if water came out of valve into cup in back. if it did, the valve is ok, if no water, replace valve. they run about $50. if you didnt hear the hum i talked about, and the valve is ok, let me know and i can walk you through checking and replacing the switch in the dispenser. good luck, shane

Testimonial: "I will do that, but wont be until later, thank you for the info and if it does not work, I will let you know so you can advise me more. Thanks Shane"
I had a Kenmore fridge - about 20 years old when I replaced it this year. It used to do the exact same thing especially in warm/hot weather. What it is is the water from the freezer defrosting. There should be something on the back near the top, inside the fridge sticking out - a tiny little tray sticking out and it may also be part of supporting one of the shelves, I can't remember. Anyways, water from the defrost pools in there and is supposed to evaporate, but it gets clogged with gunk and the water spills out and runs down the back of the fridge down to the bottom. Get a pipe cleaner or something and poke it into this hole and clean out the pipe to the hole isn't blocked. This is all inside the fridge, not outside, on the back panel outside. That's the best I can do to describe the solution - it's an easy fix you can do yourself. Good luck!

HI couple things to check, water hoses coming into washer, tip the washer back and look underneath and see if you can see where its coming from, most common leak on this one is the drain pump which is located right on the front of the motor, if you tip the washer back its a plastic pump with 2 big hoses going into it, they usually crack and leak water from there. They are only about $30.00 to buy.
