Side-by-side Whirlpool WSG 5588 A+W Water started to flow slowly up to total stop within few weeks and naturally no ice is produced... Incoming water pipe and water pressure is OK Water filter relatively new, ~ 8 months... Can be the water system be frozen within the fridge? Thanks!
Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today
The electronic fill valve in the refrigerator is 99 % the cause in most cases. there is a possibility the water chiller inside the refrigerator section could be frozen however,pull the crisper drawer out and you will see it mounted on the back wall, take a hair dryer and try thawing it out checking the water in the door as you go. let me know if that works, thanks , Bryan
where exactly is the valve?
Is it behind the 2 bottom drawers on the bottom of the fridge?
and how it looks like?
thanks for advice
I recently heated up the valve as well as the chilling area behind both plastic drawers.
few drops came out ...
anything else where it can be frozen?
15 minutes the back behind the drawers (also the area behind via the plastic grill)and simultaneously the back of the door where the icemaker is
the valve in the back was warm as the fan is heating it and there is a pretty hot area...
when I push the water dispenser button, I can hear a whispering sound from the back..
there is a "stream" of the water for less then a second delivering s small spoon of the water... and then it dries...
and after 5 minutes another few drops...
can it be the filter
any way to test the filter?
when I removed the filter the same amount of the water (next to nothing, few drops...) flows out...
