My drip pan under the frig over flows with water then on to my floor. both fans work. Air flow from freezer to frig and back seams good. Tube going to drip pan is clean. Seals looks good and clean. MOD...


I had a similar problem with my Whirlpool model 6ED25DQFW side by side refrigerator/freezer with ice maker/water dispenser. Water was slowly pooling under the refrigerator under the freezer section. The defrost drain pipe was not blocked, the condenser fan was running, the drip pan was not leaking.
The source of the leak was found to be the icemaker solenoid block plastic body which had a pinhole leak.
To fix requires either plastic welding, or replacement of the solenoid block plastic body.
To access the solenoid block firstly requires removal of the cardboard cover, located at the lower rear of the refrigerator.

Very slow drip from water dispenser. How do I fix


Good day,
A slow continues drip, but still dispenses O.K. is caused by the dual water valve on the bottom rear of the machine not closing completely.
Only fix is replacing the water valve assembly.

The ice and water dispenser on my Amana Refrigerator slowly leaks water. Are there repair parts to correct this? And how is the plastic frame containing the dispenser removed from the door?


The problem is most likely not in the door. When the dispense button is pressed it actuates an electric solenoid valve in the rear of the refrigerator that opens and allows the water to flow. Over time the valve seals get worn and the water seeps by. This is what usually causes a drip at the water dispenser. If there is a drip at the ice side then the door is jammed and is not closing fully. This allows the ice at the opening to melt and drip. Hope this helps. Please accept and rate. Good luck.

Water drips slowly out of dispenser, ice distribution is fine.


Hi, yes the water line could be starting to ice up; maybe defrosting the fridge will cure the problem. Mine has a coiled tube behind the lower drawer in the fridge, this is where the water line is chilled. Hope this helps if you've not sorted the problem already. Kind regards jb

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

The solenoid valve needs replacing, located at the back of the refrigerator. If you have well water you will need to install a filter on the supply line.

Whirlpool side-by-side refrigerator - 2 problems


I would suggest that you get a certified person to come out and look at it you very well could have bent the doors in the move.

but... if you want to do it yourself.

for your drip:
Flush air from the water system the first time it is used and after replacing the filter. Air trapped in the water line or filter may slowly travel through the coiled water reservoir to the dispenser, pushing any water ahead of it. This can cause the dispenser to drip. Water needs to completely fill the lines for all air to be cleared.
  • Use a sturdy container to press and hold the water dispenser bar for 5 seconds, then release it for 5 seconds. Repeat until the water begins to flow. Once the water begins to flow, continue pressing and releasing the dispenser bar (5 seconds on, 5 seconds off) for an additional 2 minutes. Repeat if dripping starts again because air can re-enter from the water supply.
  • As air is cleared from the system, water may spurt from the water dispenser.
  • Make sure the refrigerator is connected to a cold water supply.
One or two drops of water immediately after dispensing is normal. It may be necessary to hold the container under the dispenser for 2 to 3 seconds after releasing the dispenser lever.
