Mailbag: No Water from the Fridge Water Dispenser

David wrote:
I have a 4-yr. old Kenmore (Whirlpool) side-by-side fridge with water & ice through the door. I broke the little plastic water dispenser tube off and replaced it with a FSP part ($55 !!) It worked for a few minutes while I was filling a pot with water to brew beer (I'm a home-brewer) and the water stopped. I still get water to the ice maker, but none to the water dispenser. Can you help?


The above message was sent when you were offline, via your LivePerson site.

Message sent from IP:

Your fridge has a dual solenoid valve--one side serves the icemaker and the other side serves the water dispenser. The dispenser solenoid may have burned out but the icemaker side is still good. More troubleshooting information here.

I have a Kenmore(Whirlpool?) side by side with a water dispenser that doesn't quit. I took the front off the unit, unplugged the controls, and as best I can tell, the problem is further back in the chain than that.

What do you recommend, O Samurai?
