GE Profile Refrigerator - No water
« on: May 12, 2014, 01:22:51 PM »
GE Profile PSS26MSWSS

There's no water getting to my ice maker or water dispenser. I thought the inlet valve might be faulty, but I replaced that and I still have the same issue. So I'm guessing the problem has to be either the filter assembly (I don't have a filter; I just have the bypass plug) or the line going from the filter to the inlet valve.

Any ideas?

Did you see if you had water when you unhook water supply to water valve.Put that in a bucket to make sure its not a plumbing problem.Also that model Numbers seems to be not right.

The line going into the filter does have water; the line going into the valve does not have any water. But I was assuming the valve is what causes water to flow from the filter. Is that not correct? It sounds like you're saying if I disconnect the line going from the filter to the valve, I should see water pouring out?

First of all that model numbers seems to be missing some letters or numbers so i can not look up your model.Some refrigerators have more than one water valve.Than what i was trying to say is where the house plumbing hooks up to the water valve which is usually 1/4 inch copper tube is there water coming out of that when you leave that 1/4 inch line off and turn water back on so it eliminates a plumbing problem.Of coarse you would put that line in a bucket and turn the water back on.

Yes water flows from the wall. I don't have any copper tubing, but there is a disconnect between the wall and the filter. If I disconnect the tube there, water sprays out like a fire hydrant. So we can eliminate plumbing.

Here's the model:

If you install the plastic tubes on the new water valve right and you wire the new water valve right you may have a bad.http://www.appliancepartspros.com/ge-filter-asm-and-wr17x12203-ap4297349.html

Yes, that is correct.

You might be right about the filter housing & tube assembly. Is there a way to test this part? There might be a clog in the line or something?

The only thing I've noticed, is that every time I remove the bypass plug, there is a small amount of water inside the plug. So I'm assuming water is getting in there, but maybe it's not flowing out.

The tube coming out from the valve to the dispenser is clear, and I can visibly see that there is no water flowing into that tube. Also, there's no water flowing to the ice maker either. So I don't think it's a frozen line.

yes, there is definitely a buzz from the inlet valve when it gets activated.

take off the kick plate or bottom grill and see if there is fast disconnect there and disconnect it and then see if water comes out down there which will go on the floor to see if it is frozen.This would have nothing to do with ice maker though.
