First off is the ice maker still cycling? If it is you should check the water valve. If not first pull off the white cover on the ice maker and check the pins in the middle of the cog wheel.Whirlpool ED22DWXTN00 Ice maker - 879aba8.jpg
If they look smashed or broken you need to replace module. (part# W10122536) if that looks fine you'll need to delve deeper. There is a thermostat in the ice maker that controls its operation. If you can get a wire about 3in long and bend it into a U shape. Then insert it in to the "T" and "H" holes on the module.

Pull them out after about a 30 sec count. If the ice starts cycling then you need to replace the thermostat. (Part # 627985) if it doesn't cycle then the motor is probably bad and you'll need to replace the module. Hopes this helps and if you need more help or clarification then let me know. Good Luck!

Ice maker stopped making ice


hi,

The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

The ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve.

First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.

I have the Whirlpool gd25dfxfw02 and my freezer stopped making ice. I tried to fudge around with the silver lever/handle and stuck it back in the hole, put the lever down and it still hasn't made any ice....


1.Check shut off arm struck due to stored ice in bucket are too much. Clear it.
2.Check water pressure is normal.
3.Check freezer temp. Must be 5 degree and less.
4.Check water hose to Ice Maker. No leak in hose.
Hope helpful?

Whirlpool side by side icemaker won't stop... lol


no you shouldnt have to replace the ice maker, the stop arm probably is not in place. pull the ice maker out and check where the arm goes into the motor head. I think that will solve it for you. Good Luck.
