Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 4 months ago.

If you're getting water dripping from your dispenser, it means that your electronic water valve isn't sealing up properly and the valve on the back of your refrigerator down by the compressor needs to be replaced. This is the part that your water supply hose from your house connects to on the refrigerator itself so just follow the water supply line to locate the part. Below is a link to the part you'd need to order and replace for your model.
