  1. bruh i was just chilln at 2 am getting water and got into a deep thought of how water comes out 😂😂😂

  2. What about not being able to get cooled water from the dispenser but getting a lot of water a the water line temperature is OK?

  3. Ok question the waterline come from the unit like the sinks to the refrigerator right?if so is it filtered before dispensing out the tube is it clean is my question?

  4. My fridge (Whirlpool) has an ice maker in the bottom freezer and water dispenser on the fridge door. When the water dispenser is pushed, water to ice maker dispenses at the same time. Does anyone know why it happens? (The water line is just installed.)

  5. My water dispenser works but I don’t know if the filter is working. My ice machine isn’t producing ice anymore. Is this the filter’s fault.

  6. I just got a maytag refrigerator and im trying to get the ice and water o come out do i hook something else up or do i add water or something…i never had a refrigerator like this so could anyone help

  7. I have am whirlpool fridge model ed22twxdw02 and can’t figure out how to get water dispenser cover off. No obvious snaps. If I get putty knife under it I feel like I’m just going to use brute force and break it. Any help?

  8. I thought at 1:20 where the result of the water not shutting off properly could be a problem with the dispenser switch. Is that correct?

  9. I have a Kenmore 106.5762702.  No dispense water but make ice and water pressure sounds good when fill the ice tray.   When you push for water dispenser don’t make the traditional activation sound before dispense water.  What is the possible fail???  Thanks

  10. I don’t have water dispensing or ice dispensing. The ice maker makes ice, but I can’t get the actuator motor to turn when the switch is pushed. I have checked both micro switches with a multi meter and both are fine. I have checked the water inlet solenoid for continuity and both are also fine. Any ideas ? Thanks in advance.

  11. I have a Frigidaire Gallery French door refrigerator with bottom freezer. I have two ice makers. One in fresh food section and one in the freezer. I have already replaced the one in freezer and now the top or fresh food ice maker has stopped making ice. When I looked into it water was frozen in bin. After thawing everything out I still cannot get any ice. Water is dispensing at door but no water going into tray. Any suggestions???

  12. Our Frigidaire is not making any Ice. It makes the noise like if something is going to come out, but no ice is being made or coming out. How do I fix this problem?

  13. I just connected my water line to the fridge. Do I leave the water line on? How does it stop flowing?
