Leaking water tube connector/union
Received the union I ordered, then discovered that the tubes were different sizes, so I had the wrong part. I had read elsewhere that it was necessary to trim the two ends of the tubes with a box cutter to stop the leaks - I did this, and the leaking stopped. I was then able to go to a local hardware store and get a 5/16 to 1/4 union and replace it. The leaking is stopped, and the water supply in the door is now working like new. No problem with partselect, but I did buy a caliper so that I can check tube diameters if I ever have a similar problem! This is a great site to find instructions - well worth the time to search!

Had to replace a hose connector at the base of my refrig/frreezer
Perhaps a helpful hint:

When aI received the hose adapter/connector, I inserted the 2 hose ends only to have water drip from the connection.
I used a utility knife to remove an inch from each side, then reinserted the hoses. That made the differnce. Dry as a bone.

Hello, my ice maker works but water dispenser doesn’t work. I did not change anything. Water just stop working. Please help. Thank you!
For model number WRS325FDAM04
PartSelect logo
Hi Mita, Thank you for your question. I would suggest first testing your water inlet valve as to being the issue. Your water inlet valve has two solenoids on it. One for the ice maker and one for the water. Even if the ice maker is working fine, your water dispenser side may not be. You would be able to test this part with a mutli meter. If that part is fine you may need to look at dispenser module or control board. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Water is leaking from the vent near the water filter. Does the water filter housing need to be replaced?
For model number KFIS29BBWH00
PartSelect logo
Hi Calvin, Thank you for your question. If there is water leaking from the vent near where the water filter is located, I would check to make sure the water filter is fitted correctly and I would check the lines connected to it to see if they are cracked and fitted correctly. Check the water inlet valve as well to make sure if it is working correctly. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Water slowly dripping from the water dispenser after glass is removed. Sometimes if not caught soon enough, fills drip tray and runs down front of fridge and onto floor. Happens inconsistently. Will this part fix that problem?
For model number JSD2789GES
PartSelect logo
Hi Monica, Thank you for the question, This would be an issue with the Water Valve, PartSelect Number PS11743240. The valve is stuck open a bit and letting water leak through to the dispenser, and the valve will need to be replaced. Hope this helps!

Water leaking out of push pull fitting on back lower side.
For model number jsd2695kes
PartSelect logo
Hello Ruth, thank you for writing. This sounds as though you will need to replace either this Water Tube Connector/Union, part number PS11740187, or the Plastic Tubing, part number PS11747816 for your model refrigerator. One of the two parts may be damaged and causing this leak. Good luck with your repair!

I pressed the water dispenser button on the inside of the refrigerator and it will not shut off. Had to disconnect water line to stop it. Can this issue be resolved so i can once again get water and make ice?
For model number AFD2535DEQ
PartSelect logo
Hi Tom, Thank you for your question. There may be an issue with either the touchpad, the electronic control board and the wiring between the 2 parts. You will need to check the parts with a multimeter to see which parts are causing the issue. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

I have two problems. I've found a leak in a connector for the water line in the lower right corner (when viewed from the rear of the fridge). Will this part allow me to replace the leaking connector? I also would like to order the hinge and plastic cover for the upper hinge for the refrigerator door. It appears to have been bent possibly when the fridge was being moved. Can I ask your help in locating the correct parts? Thank you.
For model number WSF26C3EXF01
PartSelect logo
Hi William, thank you for reaching out. According to our research, the compatible water tube connector for the lower right is part number PS11740187. If you view the refrigerator from the rear side, the connector appears to be on the lower right corner behind the faceplate. The upper hinge for the refrigerator door is part number PS12741751, and the door hinge cover is part number PS3407218. If you require assistance to place an order, please contact customer service!

At time of filter replacement, the filter was replaced and now the water will not flow. I have gone through three separate filters anticipating a bad filter since the water flowed before i changed the filter. Now no water flow equals no ice as well. I have checked and i do have water flow to the filter assembly.
For model number KSCS25FVMS03
PartSelect logo
Hi Mike, Thank you for your question. To verify if the new filter is at fault for not allowing the water to dispense, reinstall the old filter to see if the water flows. If it does the problem is with the new filter. Check to be sure nothing is blocking the water filter and make sure the water filter is connected correctly. There also may be a seal or gasket on your refrigerator water filter housing that is causing the issue as well, and you will need to remove it and reinstall it so the filter can fit properly. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

My water dispenser operates intermittently. Sometimes it dispenses fine at times and other times it does nothing. I can hear the valve open all the time.What is going on?
For model number KSS48qts00
PartSelect logo
Hi Joel, Thank you for the question. This sounds like an issue with the User Interface Board or the Dispenser Control Board, PartSelect Number PS11749077. It is not repairable so it will need to be replaced. Hope this helps!
