Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators

Open Question

Whirlpool fridge mod# ED5VEXTL01 mfg. 12-06 Problem is with the water system and ice making. Water was hooked up about 12 months ago and over 10 months the water flow diminished gradually to where it took 2 mins to fill a glass and ice production became very slow (hollow cubes). I changed the filter two months ago and the problem has gotten progressively worse. Ice bin stays empty and water dispnces too slowly. What could be restricting flow?

very likely a partially clogged filter, but not sure why no light.

Hollow cubes are usually a result of lack of water supply

Why doesn't our new icemaker in a whirlpool ed5 fridge work?


Make sure water line valve is turned on where it taps in to water line,and that ice shut off is down not up, check to see if water is in ice tray or if it is dry if no water or ice is present then water is not getting to it if water tap valve is open then water valve in ice maker is off or ice shut off arm is up instead of down. Try pouring warm water in ice tray see if that will get it started.

The water dispenser is not putting out water and ice maker is not making ice. The fridge frequently cycles like it is trying to send out water.


it's still under warranty for up to 1 year,call whoever you bought it from and it should be repaired free of charge and next time you write send model number.

I have a Kenmore Coldspot (mfg date 10/00), model 106.70192001. The ice maker is NOT hooked up (by choice) and for the last several weeks, there has been water draining from freezer into fridge in a cyclic...


Your drain line is frozen and is not allowing the defrost water to drain to the pan below. You will need to remove the rear panel in the freezer and thaw the drain line. Make sure ALL ice is thawed before reassembling. I would recommend installing a drain heater so it will not happen again. They are inexpensive and easy to install. They come with complete instructions.

Whirlpool Side by Side Bad Water Taste


Hi,

Most "new" fridges with water dispensers and ice instruct the consumer in there manuals to "bleed" the reservoir by running a couple of large pictures of water thru it. I usually recommend dumping the first few harvest's of ice as well (I believe this is also mentioned in most manuals too). once that is done the water should be fine as any contaminants in the system/reservoir should be gone. you may try changing the filter after this, but it shouldn't be necessary. most ice makers do not have there supply water travel thru the water dispenser reservoir however. the water filling the ice tray should have no baring on the water you dispense into a glass to consume.

hope that helps.

good luck

Particles in ice cubes


Most new water/ice systems have break-in procedures in the manual, including flush a couple gallons of water through the water dispenser and disposing the first 24hrs of ice.

Are the particles present in the filtered water before adding ice? If so, you can probably assume the contamination is from the water tank so you should flush several gallons of water through the system to get rid. If the particles are present after adding ice, try pulling out the ice bin and dumping the ice.

My new Whirlpool Refrigerator the water and ice still stink


Change the supply line to the plastic tube line or copper. Do not use a braided plastic or metal braided line these will make the water taste bad. Changed mine to the plastic line and cured mine, no filters needed.

My new Whirlpool Refrigerator the water and ice still stink


We have the same problem. Started 2 weeks after purchase. (6 months ago). Tech. replaced fliter, worked for another 2 weeks, then water & ice awful again. Tried to live w/ it - ordered another filter a week ago. Replaced & within 24 hrs. problem was back. Called Whirlpool. Said tech who came to my househad written in his report that tap water & fridge water tasted the same. A lie - he agreed w/ me that the water from fridge was bad, & replaced filter which had a musty odor. Whirlpool basically called me a liar but agreed to send another tech to check it out. I will never buy another Whirlpool product & plan to tak this problem as far as I need to in order to get satisfaction. This is ridiculous!
