Lg French door inside ice maker stops working but water flows out the back of the fridge where the water line gores in. Water line is fine and just had a new ice maker put in but it still does not produce...


Sounds like you have to have a leak in the water line somewhere. The water line goes to the top hinge in the door, so the water has to come from somewhere below that point or it would be collecting inside the door and leak out the front. A leak would prevent water from getting to the ice maker, or a leak at the valve could have this effect as well. Check the water valve that gets a call to send water to the ice maker.

Hello David ,

Their are a few possible reason the ice is not being dispensed,

1) the door switch is bad...the door must be closed for the ice to dispense and perhaps the switch thinks the door is open

2) the switch that is activated when pushing the lever on the dispenser is bad

3) the dispenser motor is bad

4) the control board is bad

How old is the fridge? Mine lieterally caught on fire at the start device last weekend. My fridge was manufactured in July 2001. Be careful, The fridge I have is model# ED5FHGXKQ00. I am currently requesting a recall be made by Whirlpool on this appliance.
Other than that it could just be that the ice maker line has frozen or the "arm" in the ice chest is stuck and can't raise itself to pump water directly into the ice trays. Either way be very careful. I hope this was helpful.

WAS IT LEAKING FROM INSIDE THE FREEZER OR FROM BOTTOM OF FRIDGE? ONCE IN A WHILE YOU NEED TO TAKE OUT THE ICE BIN AND DUMP ICE OUT AND CLEAN IT. HOW CAN THE ICE MACHINE OVERFLOW WITH ICE WHEN THE ICE IN THE TRAY WON'T BUDGE? NEED CLARIFICATION. SOUNDS LIKE YOU EITHER HAVE A BAD ICE MAKER MODULE OR THE SOLENOID FOR THE ICE ON THE WATER VALVE IS BAD.

Ice maker has stopped making ice


Check the ice maker to see if there are ice cubes in the ice maker. If so, there is a problem with the ice maker heater and / or motor. You may be able to rebuild the ice maker by replacing defective parts, but it might be easier to replace it as a whole unit instead. If there is no ice present, it is likely a problem with the ice maker water lines / solenoid.

There are usually two solenoid valves and tubing systems for these types of fridges. One actuates on demand for water whenever requested, and the other operates automatically to make ice cubes until the ice cube reservoir is full.

Carefully push/pull the fridge away from the wall.

Unplug the fridge from the outlet.

Shut off the water supply to the fridge.

Remove access cover (usually the on the bottom) from the back of the fridge. Follow the tube that comes from the top of the fridge (for the ice maker) down to the bottom of the fridge.

Inspect visually for sources of the leak on tubing and related parts. Carefully check by hand for leaks in areas not readily visible - including the back sides of all the tubing, too. There may be sharp edges that can cut if not paying attention. If a leak is found where the tubing connects to other parts, you may be able to simply remove the tube and cut it back an inch or so if there is enough slack.

It may require that some special fittings and parts be obtained to reconnect and some compression type parts are designed for single use. If this is the case, gather the parts and bring them to a local hardware store for assistance obtaining replacements.

If a solenoid valve is found to be the culprit, due to a crack, etc. a trip to an appliance parts store will be required - unless able to purchase online. Part prices can vary widely , depending on the source.

Once replacement parts have been secured, reconnect after disconnecting power & water supply lines. When satisfied with the installation, reconnect power and water lines and test.

Carefully slide the fridge back into position - taking care to not crush the power or water lines.

The fridge has lg amounts of water collecting in the bottom of the main compartment. Is this a defrost problem,blocked line or?


Good day,
With limited information, if one, you are talking about the fresh food side, and two, the machine has water in the door, it may well be the water reservoir tank, behind the crispers or it's fittings are leaking.

As a temporary test, at the rear of the machine is the dual water valve that feeds the ice maker, and the water in the door.
There are 2 plastic lines coming out of the water valve. Unscrew the larger one ( have plenty of towels around to collect any backfeed). Leave disconnected for now as long as the valve does not leak water.
As well, unplug the two wire plug that feeds that side of the valve. You'll still get ice, but no water in the door.
Test for results.

Water lks bottom of fridge ,also ice tastes horrible


u shd spl ot ur wds fly. Do you mean the water leaks at the bottom of the fridge? If so, you may have a clogged drain hose. Pull out fridge, disconnect power, check & see where drain comes out of fridge, go to front and pour hot water down drain to see if it is frozen. It may be clogged (pea or food). If the drain doesn't work, the fridge will leak. Check the gasket on the fridge door for sealing and make sure it is in good shape.

there is a chance that the bottle that holds your water in the fridge compartment.could be broken or a line maybe disconnected this would cause water to leak in the fridge compartment.this bottle is designed to hold the water and get it cold before dispensing to your glass

Doors got to hot


Check the warrenty on fridge . Usually you have a 5 year warrenty on the compressor AND sealed system ( parts and labor ) . However , a service call charge may apply . Also check to see if something got sucked into the compressor cooling fan blade causing the noise , after you cleaned the coils .

From the description about dispensor leaking and ice getting stuck , sounds like the water valve needs to be replaced . Small ice cubes ( from not enough water ) will get caught between the rake and fingers . A leaking water dispensor , usually indicates that the water solenoid is not closing completely when letting off the water dispensor arm . Both solenoids come togather as the water valve ( located where the wall waterline connects to refrig ) .
