The water dispenser and the ice maker have stopped working on my Whirlpool Gold GS5SHA. I have cleaned and defrosted the ice maker. The lines look clear. Any suggestions? Thank you.


Hello Kent, with the work you were doing on your frig did you shut off the water valve and just forget to turn it back on. This is a very common problem. Check and see, GOOD LUCK.

I have a whirlpool gold and the ice maker keeps overflowing water and freezes all over the freezer-**** the water will not shut off?


That is almost correct, but first you need to make sure that the ice maker itself is ok. Look into it and feel it with your hand, if any of the greyish green teflon coating is chipped, cracked, or peeling, the ice maker will need to be replaced. If not, then you need a new water inlet valve assembly. You can order this part at, Reliable Parts, using your model number. For guided instruction on how to perform your repair, please reply.

Thanks, Repairman45

An ice cube gets stuck in the icemaker as it empties.


The ice making unit needs to be cleaned with a mild acid such as citric acide like commercially available Ice Machine Cleaner. minerals have built up and make the ice stick to where they will not harvest properly.

Ice maker is not working


If I understand the problem correctly, it sounds like there is ice frozen in the tube that the water flows through just before it comes into the ice maker. If this is the case, I have the solution.

This problem is caused from a bad water valve. The water line that connects to your refrigerator hooks up directly into your water valve. The way it works is this. The water valve keeps the water pressure to OFF. Whenever your ice maker needs water it simply asks the valve to open and it does. The problem is this. The valve has malfunctioned and isn't totally shutting off anymore. This lets a tiny bit of water through. This water slowly makes its way up the water line into the freezer where it freezes in your tube :) You just need a water valve! With a model number I can give you an average price. Chances are it will run anywhere from $50 - $100. Just depends on where you get it. This is also a very easy thing to change!

Brand new ice maker, water fill to tray will not shut off


The new ice maker should tell the dual water valve on rear of refrigerator to turn on if the tray makes a complete cycle. So the new ice maker is defective or the water valve on back is stuck open that leads up to the ice maker. Unplug the wires to the water control valve on back of the refrigerator and then turn the ice maker on. If the water continues to flow I recommend replacing the water valve. If the water stops coming to the ice maker I recommend returning the new ice maker. You only need to unplug the side of the water control valve leading to the ice make. I also recommend a pre-filter for the incoming water before the water control valve. Makes the water and ice better and keeps trash from damaging the water control valve. Let me know your results or if you need more assistance, Thanks, Sea Breeze

The shoot for the ice make keeps on freezing up so it doest make ice also the water doesnt come out on the door.


Replace the water valve on the back of the ref.. The solenoid is not allowing the valve to entirely shut off and you have a small leak that accumulates as a block of ice in your fill tube.

Leaking ice maker.


Sounds like you have a bad inlet valve that is staying open and is not closing letting water run through the system all the time. The valve is located next to the Ice machine water line

Whirlpool icemaker not working


the refrigerator has a duel water valve, one for the ice-maker and one for the water dispenser. the valve that the ice-maker relies on may be bad, or it could be the ice-maker itself.
another thing that could cause it would be the temperatures in the freezer. the ice-maker will not call for water until it reaches under 15 degrees.
