Is the water line in the doo that is split?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

I'm not sure. We do not see anything leaking under refrigerator but keep finding water on the floor after using the water dispenser or ice maker dispenser.

Ok pull the unit forward and remove the back panel. Have someone dispense water while you look for a water leak. If the leak is the hose you will have to cut and splice in a new hose.

How do you splice in a hose? You don't replace the whole hose?
Expert:  Appliance Man replied 7 years ago.
You can replace the whole hose because it runs through the cabinet. Go to the hardware store and get some 1/4 inch water hose and connections.
