Is the white thing frozen or not?

Yes Frown
Expert:  Appliance Medic replied 5 years ago.
Ok then this means the water valve is bad the solenoid is not shutting all the way.You will need to thaw the white tube out then on the back of the unit there is a valve its on the back right you need to replace this part i can look the part up for you if you want.

Ok thanks.The best way to defrost the tube is to take it out and run hot water through it if you do not want to do that you can use a hair dryer.Here is a link with the part you can order it from them as well.Copy paste the link below.
