    I have same problem, just rec'd repair kit from 4applianceparts.com:

    Refrigerator Ice Chute Door - 8201756

    SKU: 8201756

    Appears this will fix mine, (Kenmore version) may or may not be correct part for your fridge but it looks pretty standard.

Ice Maker Works, Water Dispenser Doesn't


I have a whirlpool side by side. water and ice in front. ice working and water not. the hose is not frozen and it is not humming when you push the water dispenser. It would give us water and quit but now we have nothing.

Ice in bucket freezes into a lump, mechanism freezes


it sounds like the ice chute door is stuck open. on this model it can slip off the "hinge pin" or the plastic that holds the pin can break. if the flap is broken it is replacable. the pin can be put back in. if the plastic that holds the pin is broken, you need to replace the whole door. expect to wait 6-8 weeks for a new door, sooner if lucky. cost is $400 +++ more for stainless.I hope the pin fell out. hope this helps

Whirlpool pin retainer is broken on ice dispenser


this is easy. there is a small area beside where the piece broke off. bend a small peice of metal coat hanger at a 90 degree angle, (this is so you can make your new hole on the correct line) heat the end with a lighter, burn a smallhole thru this area beside where the previous hole existed. now throw away the old pin that you were using and use a piece of coat hanger cut to the right length. on one end bend about one half inch to 90 degree angle, feed thru new hole and thru your spring and flap and thru to opposite side hole and lastly make small bend to keep wire from sliding out. ta da, fixed. problem solved for about two cents. i have successfully repaired many of these doors.

Problem with ice dispenser in side by side refrigerator


Bensmom, the housing that holds the flapper pin probably cracked causing the flapper not to seal. Whirlpool use to have to replace the whole door at one time because the dispenser housing was a non serviceable part. That got too expensive so they came out with a kit to remedy the problem. The kit comes with instructions but you have to be patient and take your time. You want to determine first if this is the actual problem. You can do so by looking up into the dispenser and seeing if the pin retainer is cracked or broken off. I have done a bunch of these and the kit works great. I hate the job though. Part number for the kit is 8201756. I tried to attach a picture of the kit, but I guess the file was too big...Catriver..post back.
