A new refrigerator has a water resevoir that has to fill up. you have to hold the water dispenser down for a minute or so to allow this resevoir to fill.

if you have done this already, then you probably have a bad water valve.

If this is a new purchase, you will have to depress the water dispenser lever long enough for the water to make it all the way through the system, including the water tank located inside the fresh food compartment.

Ice maker not putting out water just hooked up ice maker kit


Are you getting ice? It seems like my brand-new electrolux does not produce cold water unless it is producing ice as well. We had to adjust the auger in the ice tray to start getting ice ... seems like our water is now getting colder.

I have a Whirlpool Imerial Series Side by Side that will not disp


If you can't hear the solenoid on the water inlet valve(it's on the back where the water supply hooks up) when you try the water then the water switch on the dispenser is at fault.

If you do hear it Your water line could be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line at the bottom 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.

If it doesn't come out there disconnect it at the water inlet valve and see if it comes out there. The valve could be bad.

Ed25rfxfw01 whirlpool fridge water dispenser ...I have a slow drip from the dispenser hose. I assume I need a new water inlet valve. How do I access the inlet valve for replacing?


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
