dispenser leaking
« on: April 28, 2011, 11:19:50 PM »

when water flows thru dispenser, water dribbles out of tube (vent?)  I cleaned tray, but no luck.

Change the water valve. It is dripping like a faucet does with age.

It shouldn't be valve because it only lesks at tube when washer is on and only when water is run thru dispenser. Its the small tube molded as part of the dispenser on right side. Top must be off to see it. Any other thoughts?
