    Default Whirlpool Gold water dispenser is leaking

    Help needed, my Whirlpool Gold side by side is leaking water from the water dispenser on the front door. It is model number GS5SHGXLQ00, manufactured date of 03-02. Can anybody provide assistance? Is this something that I need to call a certified technician for? or is it something that can be fixed easily?

    Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    Is it a constant drip at all times? If so you will need a new inlet water valve.

    Here is the one for your model:

    Thanks for replying. Yes, it is a constant drip. Is it easy to install the part you recommended or do I need a professional to do it?

    Also, what is the difference between parts #3307 & #949403?

    Yes, its fairly easy to replace, just pull your refrigerator out from the wall, then turn your water supply off, then unscrew the water line hook-up to that water inlet valve, then unmount that valve and remember/write down where your water tubing & electrical connections go, then just place them the same on the new valve.

    The 949403 is the upgraded water inlet valve from the 3307.
