Thanks for the question.

The water line comes from the bottom of the door check that hose connection, also pull the fridge out and look at the water valve for the leak. it could be just a split hose that you can repair.

The hose by the door is fine, the leak is underneath the other door, in front. There is no leak in the back or by any valve.

in the fridge side does it come from under the fridge if thats where its from theres a small hose at the back that connects to the water reservoir, check that area.

The leak is on the refrig side (underneath in front only), the water dispenser is on the freezer side.

The water reservoir is in the fridge at the bottom behind the crisper's , theres a hose that connects to it , it could be leaking from there check that.

Checked it - hose is good, all is dry. Does this mean the hose is leaking beyond the reservoir underneath?

Expert:  John replied 6 years ago.
Yes thats where it enters the reservoir at the back just under the fridge, it has to be that hose .

Do I need a repairman for this or can I do it myslef?
Expert:  John replied 6 years ago.
You can repair this yourself, pull the fridge out and take a look for that hose take the bottom panel off the back and push in the disp button to get water you will see the leak.
