Thank you! Did you run a gallon or two of water at the door after installing the new filter to purge the air from the system?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Just About a gallon, it's hard to get it fully to the spout, but I can run more.
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 1 year ago

I would run another gallon and see if it improves. Dispense until the stream is steady and does not sputter at all. Let me know what happens after, please.

air can cause the leak? It's not sputtering, but I can run another gallon.
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 1 year ago

Yes, if air is in the line, it will allow the water to drip at the dispenser, kind of like a siphon. If, after running another gallon, it still leaks, the water inlet valve's diaphragm has likely failed and is not shutting off. Let me know what happens, please.

ran another gallon and used a papertowel to make sure no more water was dripping. Going back now to see if I notice any more drops.
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 1 year ago

Thank you, ***** ***** has stopped!

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
was just a few minor drops when I checks, I used a papertowel again to get any excess and tapped a few times to see if anymore was coming out. Not really, but if I pressed up a little I did see a small amount and then now more.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
seem if you use it it drips a few times. Perhaps another gallon may help?
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 1 year ago

It may help to run a bit more. Is the pressure pretty good at the dispenser when you dispense?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
pressure is good, yes.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
You don't think there's anything at the spout that needs to be tightened?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
just checked again and touched the bottom of the spout with papertowel, a little drop came out.
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 1 year ago

I suspect it is just residual dripping. After you stop dispensing, does it drip only once or twice and then not drip again until you dispense again?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
should I expect a few drops after dispensing? would just a little moisture on the tip be normal?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
not dripping like before, but if I put another papertowel to it it gets a little moist. but nothing major.
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 1 year ago

Yes, it is not abnormal to get a drip or two after the valve shuts off. If, however, it continues to drip, I would replace the water inlet valve.

Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 1 year ago

Hmm, sounds like the valve will need to be replaced. Please allow me just a few minutes to get that information prepared for you.

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
is this at the spout?
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 1 year ago

No, the valve is mounted in the back of the cabinet, at the very bottom.

ok, I see the site and video. one last question for now, how could that piece all of a sudden go bad by just replacing the filter?
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 1 year ago

There may be "gunk" that has gotten in the valve from your water line after running so much water through at one time, it is hard to say.

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
thanks, I'll monitor it over night (seems to be fairly stable right now) and if I'm swimming in the kitchen tomorrow, i'll order and replace the part. Seems like I can expect a few drops after every use at this point.
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 1 year ago

Yes, a few drops right after dispensing would not be unexpected. Also, if there is construction in your neighborhood, you may see air in the line from open lines in the area. Let me know if it gives you trouble!
