    My ice maker just suddenly stopped making ice. I have replaced the filter, checked the temperature and made sure the valve (tube leading to actual tray?), wasn't frozen. What else could it be?? The fridge is only 2 years old!!!

There is usually a wire like piece that needs to be in proper position for water valve to flow, have you checked owners manual?

The water isnt getting thru to the icemaker, i have used a hairdryer on the water valve and still nothing , i even changed out the water valve but alas no water is being pumped thru to the icemaker, what...


Hello,

Does water dispense through the dispenser ok in the door dispenser??

If yes wate r dispenses through the door ok the problem is going to be with the icemaker itself and its not sending power to the water valve when its supposed to fill so it could make the ice

If water doesnt dispense through the door check that water pressure into valve is sufficent..even if water does dispense what seems to be ok check first that thier is good water pressure into the valve before replacing icemaker

Icemaker makes shells. Outside is frozen but


Hollow cubes are caused by not having enough water in the ice mold. Fill it up manually by pouring water in it and see how the cubes turn out.
look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water. + is more water.


Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

There is a screen filter before the water inlet valve in the water line. It can get partially stopped up with sediment blocking water flow.

Ice maker isn't making ice, but the water works just fine.


switch the wires on the water valve (it has two plugs) and depress the water lever and see if the icemaker fills with water, if it does, change the icemaker, if it doesn't change the water valve. make sure there is no ice obstruction in the fill tube in the freezer

Whirlpool indoor ice maker not making ice


Could not locate your model number. However, Check fill tube for icemaker inside the freezer. Iced solid? replace water valve. No ice in fill tube? Get correct model number and resubmit your request.

No water going in the ice maker but water dispener


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into icemaker . If it freezes and does not dump , replace the icemaker . Check to make sure the coils are clean of dust , lint , pet hair , etc . If it does dump , and does not refill with water , replace the water inlet valve ( piece behind refrig where the wall water line connects to on the fridge ) . Check to make sure the fill tube that fills the icemaker is not blocked with ice , still indicating a bad water inlet valve ( slow seep ) .

Replace selenoid and water is still not going to ice maker


Did you pour about 2/3 cup of water into the icemaker and did it dump ? If you did pour water into the icemaker , and it did not dump the cubes , then the icemaker is bad . If it did dump , so you replaced the water valve , then the fill tube directly at the icemaker is frozen with ice . It will need to be removed ( fill tube at icemaker ) and the ice cleared out by hot water . On some models , behind the refrig , 2 screws hold the fill tube in place . Remove the tube , and clear the ice . When reinstalling , have someone guide it from inside the freezer , to where it mounts on the icemaker fill cup .

Ice maker is not filling w water. water does come


The ice maker likely needs replaced however it could also be the fill valve. If you have the ability to locate the valve at the end of the fill hose (usually bottom right when looking at the back of the fridge) it will have 2 solonoids with electical connectors on them. Swap the connectors and press the water dispenser paddle. This should fill the icemaker. If it does, the valve is fine and the icemaker is bad.

ICE MAKER QUIT MAKING ICE ON MY WHIRLPOOL FRIDGE


I had a Whirlpool Model GD5SHAXNS in which the icemaker quit working about the same time (3 years old). I had water out the dispenser, I found that it was the icemaker itself failed not calling for water to fill it. I replaced it with a icemaker on-line for about $100 and problem fixed. I have been told his is a common problem with the icemaker in this model ref.
