Ice maker continued to fill to the point that water would spill out of the ice maker and pour down the shelves in the freezer
The repair is self explanitory and very simple but the information I gathered on trouble shooting the issue, indicated that if the Inlet valve was not working or stuck open, water would continue to drip from ice maker fill line and water dispenser in the door. I never had a problem with a leak in the water dispenser but when I activated the water dispenser, the water would pour out of the ice maker fill line and then slowly drip after deactivating the water dispenser.

Water dispenser in door constantly drips water. Ro and refrigerator filters have been changed and line purged. What part do I need to fix this? Thanks
For model number GS6NBEXRL00
PartSelect logo
Hello John, Thank you for the question. This could be caused be the Water Inlet Valve PartSelect Number PS11749231. The port for the dispenser can become "stuck" open and allow water to drip through. We hope this helps.

The freezer leaks slowly in the back and trickles down to the bottom and than freezes, it only leaks when the ice maker is ON is this a water inlet valve or tubing issue? will order parts to fix
For model number 106.57713701
PartSelect logo
Hello Bill, thank you for your question. Inspect the tubing and water valve. If there are any cracks in the tubing, replace the Filter Inlet Water Tube part number PS886401. If the tube seems to be intact, the water could be coming from the Water Inlet Valve, part number PS11749231. We hope this helps.
