Water is dripping out of the small faucet in the front- the water dispenser. I looked to see how it works but nothing is directly touching the button that engages when water is dispensed.
I do not even know how to turn off the water until it is fixed
Had the same problem.
Turned out it was a worn out valve that controls water distribution. Remove the back panel. There is a (in my case) blue part with one water line coming in and two water lines coming out. This houses an electromagnetic control which directs water either to the dispenser, or the ice maker. I took it apart a few times, and didn't see anything wrong, but ordered a replacement, easily switched it out and viola! No more leak. Ordered the part online for less than a repair visit.

Hi,the leakage in your kitchen aid all the time is due to the fact that the water inlet valve of your refrigerator,hence water keeps dripping from the dispenser always.
The only solution to the problem,is to remove the back plate which covers the compartment at the bottom of the refrigerator and replace the water inlet valve.
However,the component part number for your model is; 4389177
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.
Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out of it and see if you have a slow drip. Try the dispenser to see if it's just drips after use.
I have a model KSRG25F and found that the solenoid that controls the water to the icemaker was not working. I tested by switching the water dispenser connection to the ice maker coil.
And then had the wife push the water fill in front of the fridge. I had aready changed out the control board in front because I didnt have the flash codes or solid led when simulating door closed. the parts is about $55 and hope that does it. Good Luck
I would suggest not buying a KitchenAid. I have the same problem with my ice maker. Have had nothing but problems with every KitchenAid product that I have ever owned. I will never purchase another KitchenAid product.
