Question about LG Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a LG LFX25960TT with ice/water dispenser. when i get water there is something floating in it. How can i replace the water line.

I thought it may be ice so i put it on my finger. Although it is small and thin it doesnt melt. I have changed the filter twice with no change. I was wondering if the line feeding the water dispenser is breaking down and needs to be replaced.

Check the line that goes from the water pipe to the back of the refrig. Someone may have used something they shouldn't have. The lines in the refrig won't break down like that.

SOURCE: Floating bits in Whirlpool fridge-freezer crushed ice water

Ice cubes freeze from the outside, so the center of the cube is the last to freeze. Ice is pure water, only H 2 O, so as the ice cube freezes, all of the dissolved minerals are pushed to the center. Near the end of the freezing, there isn't much water left in the center of the cube, so these minerals become very concentrated, and they form the "white stuff" – the technical name is precipitate. The hardness minerals that cause the "white stuff" are not toxic.

The same thing happened to me. If you pull the refrigerator out and remove the large silver panel, you will see the water lines on the left. The line going to the ice maker was fine, but the line going to the water dispenser was split. You may have the same issue.

SOURCE: Ice maker won't make ice after replacing water filter -plugged

I've had the discolored water before when replacing the filter. It normally means that there was gunk in the water line.

Do you still hear the ice maker trying to draw water in?
If not, the water pump might be burnt out.

If so, see below.

The water lines that feed the dispencer and the ice maker split after a certain point.

It's possible that the line that feeds the ice maker might be clogged. You should be able to get to it by removing a few screws and pulling off the back panel of the fridge. Then you can check them out and remove the clog.

Comment on the post if more helps is needed.

SOURCE: slow water flow

dadcanfix. There are two possibilities here. One could be the water valve itself, clogged or not seating or opening properly. The second would be the water tank on the refrigerator side, partially frozen. I believe they have a kit now with coiled tubing that replaces that tank because of the trouble they had with it. Remove the refer drawers and take a hair dryer and go over the tank lightly. See if that improves the water flow. Catriver..post back.

Ice maker that fills will water dispensed through refrigerator door.


the valve is probably operated by a celenoid, if you removed it during the hose replacement it may be installed incorrectly, out of line or not have a good ground.

Refrigerator dispenses ice, but does not dispense water?


Unfortunately, the housing that the water filter fits into is also the housing for the solenoid controlled water valve, and that is the most likely failure item.

LG refrigerator won't dispense water any more


The water line is freezing in the door due to deteriorated insulation. The only fix I have found to work on my fridge was to defrost the inside door with a blow dryer. Then place a weedeater replacement line (the orange 10" or so size you find at Lowes' or Home Depot) up through the dispenser nozzle, If the line only travels about 3-4 inches up the nozzle, then ice is still in the tube. Blow dry it until you are able to get water to dispense. After the tube is ice-free, place the weedeater line up throuth the dispenser nozzle leaving about 1/8" sticking out. The dispenser will still work with the line stuck in it. The dispenser will probably freeze again in about 8 hours, But all you need to do each time this happens is to pull the weedeater line out, dispense the water to unclog the ice, and place the weedeater line back in the nozzle. I have been using this method for about a week now and it works great. My GE Side-by-side is also 4 years old and this seems to be a problem with all of them. There is a part you can order to fix the problem, but I have heard it may not work.

Is there a filter on the back of the refrigerator that the water line hooks to? I can't remember if all of them have one or not. It sounds like either your water line is clogged or the valve feeding the line might have been turned way down. I would turn the valve off, disconnect the hose from the refrigerator and put the end in a large bowl or bottle and have someone turn the water on to see if you have good flow through the line. Best of Luck

No water, no ice-LG LFD21860ST


Sound like a water supply problem, as both get water from the same source. Both valves are connected to the water line that supplies water to the frig, in the back, bottom, behind the cardboard cover. Make sure the water valve is on for that line. The noises indicate thew valves are probably working, but are not getting any water.

Check to make sure the water supply to the refrig is good and the inlet screen where the water line connects to the refrig is clean. You can change the amount of water fill by pressing the button on the left side of the ice maker. (indicator lights above button show setting) Selecting "Ice Plus" on front of dispenser panel increases ice production for a 24 hour period. Ice maker should produce 6 cubes per cycle, aprox.. 100 to 130 cubes in 24 hours depending on freezer compartment temp, room temp, number of door openings, etc.

Water wont flow into LG LX259602b ice maker


You may have a bad water valve.  The valve has 2 sections, one for the water dispenser and the other for the ice maker.  Check those connections in the back of the refrigerator.  If everything is ok, replace the water valve.
