Customer Question
Hi I have a...

Hi I have a whirlpool model ed5ghg refrigerator. I want to shut off the water to it. What do I have to do?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Model ED5GHG

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes if I can. Need to disconnect because water is freezing up in the ice maker channel and not making ice cubes at all.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Just trying to stop flow of water to frig. Plan to buy new whirlpool ASAP

Are you trying to fix the refrigerator or just want to get the water supply shut off? Do you want to continue to be able to use the water dispenser?
