For Whirlpool Water Inlet Valve (Part Number: AP5263471)

My water dispenser does not always shut off when it is released and continues to drip after releasing the lever. I have pulled (lightly of coarse) on the lever to see if it was still depressed, but the water continues to drip. If you release the lever abruptly it will sometimes shut off or not drip quite as much. The ice maker is also dripping into the ice tray after dumping the ice and refilling. It appears to be overfilling. Could it be the valve is not closing completely allowing the normal water preassure to cause the leak? Both problems were noticed around the same time. The filter is changed about every 6 months. The water here is pretty hard. Hard water mineral build up??? There has been no noticable change in water flow. As far as I know the water presure in our Parish has not increased.

ANSWER Hello David. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the water valve is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit.
