My 2004 Whirlpool side by side refrigerator is dripping

My 2004 Whirlpool side...

My 2004 Whirlpool side by side refrigerator is dripping steadily from the water dispersing line. I have locked the dispersing units. I installed a new

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

It is a 2004 model # ED5VHGXMQ10 I installed a new filter this evening and wonder if I may have loosened the water line somehow. I am an older single woman so not going to be able to move and get into it. Just want to know if there is a way to stop it

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

Sent that info as you were typing to me. Older single woman!!

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

Anyway to stop it without an emergency technician night call or turning off the fridge?

Great! If you just replaced the filter, run a gallon of water through the dispenser to make sure all the air is purged out of the system. If you still have an issue, your electronic water valve behind the refrigerator down below by the compressor isn't sealing properly and the valve needs to be replaced. Below is a link to the valve you'd need to order and replace for your model number.
