Default Problem with the water dispenser
Model Number: GD25DQXFW01   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 5 - 10 years

Hi There,
Yes I am having difficulty with the water dispenser. It no longer works, the icemaker does however and when I lower the arm in the freezer you can hear the water charging/filling the tray so I donít believe I have a problem with the water line from the filter to the valve. I do not have a repair manual but wondered if there is a double solenoid valve that allows water for ice or water for the dispenser when activated at the dispenser. How can I troubleshoot to verify a bad valve? Do I test for the signal at the solenoid? What aspects am I missing from the troubleshooting guide if it is not the valve?

Locate the water inlet valve on the back of the refrigerator. Remove the wires from the water dispenser solenoid (5/16" tube) and check for 120 VAC between these wires while the water dispenser calls for water. Replace the water valve if there is proper voltage.

Part number: AP3085178

Gene,
I tested out and got the signal indicating failure of the water side of the inlet valve. I looked at the part and am assuming that it mates with the existing outer inlet for the water. Is this the case and would I need any o-rings or anything else?

If there is correct voltage reading then you don't need anything else but the water valve.
