Water and Ice Dispensers
(on some models)
Depending on your model, you may have one or more of the
following options: the ability to select either crushed or cubed
ice, a special light that turns on when you use the dispenser, or a
lock option to avoid unintentional dispensing.
The Water Dispenser
If you did not flush the water system when the refrigerator was
first installed, do so now. Use a sturdy container to depress and
hold the water dispenser lever for 5 seconds, then release it for
5 seconds. Repeat until water begins to flow. Once water begins
to flow, continue depressing and releasing the dispenser lever
(5 seconds on, 5 seconds off) for an additional 2 minutes. This
will flush air from the filter and water dispensing system.
Additional flushing may be required in some households.
NOTE: As air is cleared from the system, water may spurt out of
Allow 24 hours for the refrigerator to cool down and chill water.
IMPORTANT: Depending on your model, the small removable
tray at the bottom of the dispenser is designed to catch small
spills and allow for easy cleaning. There is no drain in the tray.
The tray can be removed from the dispenser and carried to the
sink to be emptied or cleaned.
To Dispense Water:
1. Press a sturdy glass against the water dispenser lever.
2. Remove the glass to stop dispensing.
NOTE: Water may have an off-flavor if you do not use the
dispenser periodically. Dispense enough water every week to
maintain a fresh supply.
The Ice Dispenser
Ice dispenses from the ice maker storage bin in the freezer when
the dispenser lever is pressed. The dispensing system will not
operate when the freezer door is open. To turn off the ice maker,
see "Ice Maker and Storage Bin."
Your ice maker can produce both crushed and cubed ice. Before
dispensing ice, select which type of ice you prefer by pressing
the ICE button.
The display screen indicates which type of ice is selected.
For crushed ice, cubes are crushed before being dispensed. This
may cause a slight delay when dispensing crushed ice. Noise
from the ice crusher is normal, and pieces of ice may vary in size.
When changing from crushed to cubed, a few ounces of crushed
ice will be dispensed along with the first cubes.
To Dispense Ice:
1. Press the button to select the desired type of ice.
Use a sturdy glass when dispensing ice.
Failure to do so can result in cuts.
2. Press a sturdy glass against the ice dispenser lever. Hold the
glass close to the dispenser opening so ice does not fall
outside of the glass.
IMPORTANT: You do not need to apply a lot of pressure to
the lever in order to activate the ice dispenser. Pressing hard
will not make the ice dispense faster or in greater quantities.
3. Remove the glass to stop dispensing.
NOTE: Ice may continue to dispense for up to 10 seconds
after removing the glass from the lever. The dispenser may
continue to make noise for a few seconds after dispensing.
