Water valves leak like a leaking faucet sometimes. They just will not close all the way allowing water to bypass the valve and either drip at dispenser or drip and make a mess in freezer. Your model takes a=> 2219592 Water Valve - Dual Outlet
Change the dual water control valve and I believe this will solve this problem, Thanks Sea Breeze
I had a similar problem with my Whirlpool model 6ED25DQFW side by side refrigerator/freezer with ice maker/water dispenser. Water was slowly pooling under the refrigerator under the freezer section. The defrost drain pipe was not blocked, the condenser fan was running, the drip pan was not leaking. The source of the leak was found to be the icemaker solenoid block plastic body which had a pinhole leak. To fix requires either plastic welding, or replacement of the solenoid block plastic body. To access the solenoid block firstly requires removal of the cardboard cover, located at the lower rear of the refrigerator.
The problem is most likely not in the door. When the dispense button is pressed it actuates an electric solenoid valve in the rear of the refrigerator that opens and allows the water to flow. Over time the valve seals get worn and the water seeps by. This is what usually causes a drip at the water dispenser. If there is a drip at the ice side then the door is jammed and is not closing fully. This allows the ice at the opening to melt and drip. Hope this helps. Please accept and rate. Good luck.
Hi, yes the water line could be starting to ice up; maybe defrosting the fridge will cure the problem.
Mine has a coiled tube behind the lower drawer in the fridge, this is where the water line is chilled.
Hope this helps if you've not sorted the problem already. Kind regards jb
It should be on the right hand side in the back take off the compressor cover on the back should be 8 or so 1/4 screws nutdriver type and then two more hold on the water valve. If you have a RO system hooked up to refrig you may need to change the filters on the ro or just change the filter on the refrig. those two will also cause the water to drip thru the valve allowing it to drip on the front
I would suggest that you get a certified person to come out and look at it you very well could have bent the doors in the move.
but... if you want to do it yourself. click here for a walkthrough
for your drip: Flush air from the water system the first time it is used and after
replacing the filter. Air trapped in the water line or filter may
slowly travel through the coiled water reservoir to the dispenser,
pushing any water ahead of it. This can cause the dispenser to
drip. Water needs to completely fill the lines for all air to be
Use a sturdy container to press and hold the
water dispenser bar for 5 seconds, then release it for 5 seconds.
Repeat until the water begins to flow. Once the water begins to flow,
continue pressing and releasing the dispenser bar (5 seconds on,
5 seconds off) for an additional 2 minutes. Repeat if dripping starts
again because air can re-enter from the water supply.
As air is cleared from the system, water may spurt from the water dispenser.
Make sure the refrigerator is connected to a cold water supply.
or two drops of water immediately after dispensing is normal. It may be
necessary to hold the container under the dispenser for 2 to 3 seconds
after releasing the dispenser lever.
