Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect.com. I understand how frustrating it can be when the dispenser continuously drips. I have included instructions below on how to replace the water valve in the refrigerator.
SAFETY NOTICE: Be sure to disconnect power to the appliance before performing any repairs. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks that might be recommended, please contact your local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others.

1. Pull the refrigerator away from the wall so that the rear is accessible.

2. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet and turn off the water supply valve by turning the handle clockwise until it is tight.

3. Remove the water supply line from the water inlet valve using an adjustable wrench. Place a towel below the valve to catch any water remaining in the line.

4. Remove the lower access panel of the refrigerator by removing the screws securing it in place.

5. Remove the mounting screws securing the inlet valve to the refrigerator cabinet.

6. Transfer the solenoid wire connectors from the old inlet valve to the new inlet valve.

7. Press each quick-connector on the bottom of the inlet valve, at the point at which the each tube enters the inlet valve using an open-ended wrench. Measure 11/16 of an inch from the end of the tube and make a mark using a marker. Insert the tube into the same tube inlet on the new inlet valve up to the mark. Repeat for each tube.

8. Secure the new inlet valve the to refrigerator cabinet using the mounting screw removed from the old valve.

9. Replace the lower access panel of the refrigerator.

10. Connect the water supply line to the new inlet valve. Tighten the compression nut using and adjustable wrench.

11. Turn on the water supply valve and examine the connection for any leaks. Tighten as necessary.

12. Plug the refrigerator's power cord back into the wall outlet and then push the refrigerator back against the wall.

13. Run approximately one gallon of water through the water fountain to clear air from the tubes.

Thank you for your question on the water dripping at the water dispenser line spigot.

It sounds like the water valve is not completely shutting off and may need to be replaced.

Before you replace the water valve remove the crisper drawers and locate the chilled water reservoir behind them and check to see if you have an air bubble in the tank. If you do, many times this will cause the dripping faucet type effect from the air bubble moving in the tank.

See if you can do a long purge of the water line by using a 2 quart container and running the water valve for at least a minute to see if you can get the bubble to purge out of the tank.

There is natural air in water and sometimes it will collet and build up in the tank.

The new refrigerators have gone to a roll of plastic tubing instead of the tank style to prevent this problem.

If you have you air in the tank then I would think the replacement of the water valve is in order.

I hope this will help. Please let me know what you find to be the problem.

Sam A.
