What causes water to drip from the water dispensor when not in use?
Answer Hello Wet Willy. Remove the hose from the water valve and see if it is leaking from there. If so, you will need to order and replace the water valve on the unit.
I took out my old dishwasher.....can I crimp the hose for the water supply long enough to connect a shutoff valve so I can hook up a ice maker in it's place..........
It is not recommended to crimp the hose to install a shut off. You would want to shut the water off to the home supply in order to attach a shutoff valve for the icemaker.
How do I disconnect the water lines going into the water filter base?

I have a Frigidaire refrigerator model # plhs237zab6. I have a replacement part of a water filter base. How do I replace this?
Answer Hello Diana. The housing mounted in the food compartment along with the light and damper assembly must be removed as well. To remove the Control Housing Assembly, remove the three screws across the front control box and the two screws located in the rear control box. After removing cover over water line on front filter models, remove the screw from the back of the control box. Drop the housing from the unit down to access the lines going into the back of the filter base. Then access the lines coming into the base of the filter head. Press in on the fittings and release the lines from the filter base. Then remove the filter base from the unit. Install the new filter base 240396002 in reverse order.
I replaced the water/ice maker water valve, and now it makes a funny sound then dispenses water by it's self, what do I need to do?
You will want to make sure that the tubing going into the water valve are fully seated and that the water supply does not have a restriction that would cause the icemaker to make the noise. You will also want to make sure that you reconnected the wiring properly. If the wiring is reversed it could cause this type of issue as well. Make sure that tubing is in the correct place as well. Specifically going from the valve to the filter and then back to the valve then to the dispenser.

Where is the water filter for this model?
Answer Hello John. The unit does not come with a internal water filter. However you can use a in line water filter part number 4378411RB. Thanks!
I have a pretty new water filter and the base filter looks good but water runs very slow out of the dispenser. I had very hard water for years but now have a softener. could the valve need replacement.
Answer Hello John,
You will want to check water valve to make sure that the water is flowing through the valve properly. Check the water reservior to make sure that the reservior does not have build up causing the water to flow slow. Double check to make sure that all the lines are reconnected properly.
