I have a 10 year old Amana side by side that has developed a water
dispenser problem. The water just keeps on running as if the dispenser
lever is being depressed. The lever is not stuck in the on position.
That lever operates a valve controlled by a solenoid which is an
electromagnet that pulls the water valve open. I would guess the valve is
stuck open but couldn't tell you why. Could be the solenoid is stuck or
the valve itself is stuck because of deposits in your water (if the valve
is before the filter.)
