How to repair water dispenser?
Answer Skip, You didn't mention an issue, but you want to make sure the water tank behind the crisper drawers is not frozen, and there's plenty of water at the fill valve connection. 1. Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power. 2. Turn off the water supply to the refrigerator. 3. Open the refrigerator compartment doors and remove any items from around the water dispenser switch. 4. Slide the water dispenser screw cover up
and remove it. 5. Remove the hex-head screw from the water dispenser. 6. Pull the top of the water dispenser out and remove the water dispenser from the liner. 7. Disconnect the two wires from the dispenser switch terminals. 8. Push and release the locking tabs on the water dispenser switch, and pull the switch off the housing pins. 9. Disconnect the end of the water dispenser tube at the quick-disconnect coming
from the water reservoir. 10. Remove the retaining clip and water tubing from the water dispenser housing and pull the end of the tube off the housing. 11. Pull the water dispenser tubing out of the channel in the refrigerator liner. As long as the filter and filter housing are clean and the filter is installed properly, you should find the issue in the switch assembly.
the water comes out steadly out of the despenser with the bypass cap in, but when you put the filter in it seems like
the filter is restricting the water flow cold the water filter head be bad??
Normally if you put the bypass in and the unit dispenses then the issue is caused by a faulty water filter. If the water filter is new then the issue would most likely be the filter head.
Water from dispenser starts as steady stream then slows and begins pulsating. Replaced filter and all was good for about a week before problem began again. When filter is removed, water constantly trickles from water filter head. No leaks when filter is attached to head. I don't have a bypass plug. Please help solve this so I purchase the correct part. Thanks
The first thing that you will want to do is to make sure that when the filter is installed that it is twisted all the way in. It will feel like it stops and you will need to try to turn it just a little more. If the filter is not all the way in it will start the pulsating as the unit is being dispensed. If the filter is fully in and still pulsating then the filter head would need to be replaced on the unit.
Hi, I have the side by side whirlpool fridge model GD25DFXB02. It has been slow over the past few months, changed the filter with one of your replacements, and it was great for about 2 weeks and then seriously slowed (to little more than a trickle.) thought it might be one bad filter, so two weeks in I changed to the second one, let the recommended amount of water go through and again, was flowing nicely for two weeks, then slowed. Not sure if this is relevant, but when I took the filter out, the water was also flowing great. Do I need to replace the water filter head? I appreciate any suggestions!
Answer Hello M.J.S.,
This sounds like excessive debris in the water supply. If you have had a water heater failure recently, you could have debris in the water supply from the old water heater. Otherwise, I think you should install an in-line filter behind the unit for two reasons: The in-line filter replacements are usually much cheaper to replace than the on-board filters. Secondly, the in-line filters have not experienced issues that the on-board filters have. The on-board filters even generated service bulletins with "curing" issues from the manufacturers.
