Whirlpool ED2FHEXN Side by Side Refrigerator - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

if the fault is in the contactor, then u will not hear a click from the solenoid. if u hear the click and no water it might be the solenoid. solenoids fail very often, they corrode or clock inside.
if u press the handle and do not hear a click and no water then u have to check the electrical circuit for continuity at the solenoid.
my guess: the solenoid

The problem is the water pump at the back of the refrigerator.
Replaced and you should be fine.

There must be locks inside. First of all, check the locks if there are, then shake up or down slowly and steadily. Then while shaking, pull it towards yourself. Thats all.

I suggest that you DO NOT try to "fix" the motor module on an ice maker, it is simpler and in the long-run - much cheaper to replace the entire ice maker.
Be aware that many new refrigerators use the ice maker timing of the ice maker to control the defrost cycle of the refrigerator and messing up with the I/M internal parts may cause you some consequential damage.

replace water valve and install an inline water filter on the way to the water valve

Whirlpool... | Answered on Jan 07, 2014 | 40 views

I have had this happen to me before. What happens is the water fill valve
does not completely close and the tube will freeze shut as a small ammount of water will continuosly dribble into the tube when the valve shuts off causing the tube to freeze solid. I tried to clean the valve but that did not work so I replaced it and that ended the problem. A new valve is not expensive.

ice maker not getting water why

Whirlpool... | Answered on May 21, 2013 | 217 views

Most likely the problem is related to a defective water control valve on the dispenser side of the valve. If your model is the ED2FHEXN it will use the=> W10408179 Water Inlet Valve

You should always turn the water supply off before removing the filter cartridge just to insure less water clean up should a water valve be stuck open. At this point I still believe that the water control valve is at fault for not allowing water flow to the dispenser. Here is a parts manual=> ED2FHEXN Parts Manual and here is a link to your ED2FHEXN User Manual You may get some water flow spraying should there be a valve stuck open but that is not the cause of you not getting water to the dispenser. Your ice maker is still working right? I will be here should you have questions or comments, Thanks Sea Breeze

Most likely half of your water control valve is defective stopping water flow to dispenser. The part number that fits a D2FHEXN is=> W10408179

When you open the freezer door the light should be blinking. When you hold the flipper door shut (on the left hand side) without blocking the beam, the light should stay on solid. If all of this happens then the optics are o.k. If optics are ok then you most likely have a broken motor module on the icemaker and should replace the icemaker thermostat along with it. A bad icemaker thermostat will lead to the module breaking. If you not sure how to replace these parts then I would just replace the whole icemaker. That would be easiest and usually not much more expensive.

Dtot, does the flap shut all the way? Sounds like you are drawing moisture from the chute. The flapper should seat so that no air is being drawn in. I have seen a number of these Whirlpools where the pin and spring retainer has broken off from the dispensor housing causing this problem. They use to replace the whole freezer door because the dispensor housing is not a servicable part. They have now come out with a kit to address this problem. This is not a fun job for a first timer. You may want to contact Whirlpool and inquire about the aforementioned. If this is your case, there is a good chance they will cover it. Catriver..post back.

water valve

Whirlpool... | Answered on Sep 12, 2012 | 309 views

Not at all. The icemaker is a seperate functioning part of the machine and only gets power from the electrical system. So the only two outside variables that can effect it is the machine losing power or the temperature not being cold enough for it to cycle.

No, you can't. The line goes into the mold of the machine with no access there.You have either an air leak in the dispenser area, around the ice shoot possibly, or the resevoir, which is located on the refrigerator side in the lower area behind the drawers is freezing, which is most likely the case. There are vents on the lower section for the crisper drawers. If you take out the drawers you'll find a roll of 1/4 " tubing which they call a resevoir that cools the water down. This is probably frozen,and you can insulate this, but I would raise the temperature in the fridge side or close the vents to the crisper area.

The auger motor is not very powerful, so if you have ice build up in the bin, it can hold the auger motor immobile. Suggest you take the ice bin out and completely defrost and dry before putting back in.
