The water dispenser on my side-by-side refrigerator stopped working abruptly (no gradual drop-off in flow). Light comes on when water dispenser lever is pushed, but there is no humming sound. Ice maker and ice dispenser are working properly. Do I have a faulty valve?
Incidentally, I tried to check the water filter but couldn't locate one -- does this machine have a filter? The owner's manual covers several models and I can't find the answer. The filter is NOT located in the upper right hand corner of the refrigerator)
This part does not have a water filter. You will want to check to see if you are getting water to the door of freezer. You can do this by removing the lower kick panel and disconnecting the water line. Once disconnected you can push the dispenser lever to see if water comes out. If it does this means that the dispenser fill tube is frozen and will need to have a heater kit WR49X10173 installed.
