This is a very broad problem. you have issues with your ice maker. it could be the solenoid that supplies water to it. it could be turn off, it could be the laser sensor malfunctioning. it could be the receiver of the laser. it could be the gear that harvest ice is froze up. or the heater to melt the ice if it has one has gone bad. or it could just be a stuck ice that would not come out of the ice maker.

you can remove your ice maker, thaw it up if there is ice in the tray. then install it back and observe.

Whirlpool Gold side by sideGC3PHEXNS00 not making ice but the water works. Already replaced the filter.


put your finger in the ice mold and see if there is ICE in the mold. if no ice then use a turkey baster and put approx 1/4 cup of water into the ice mold, slowly. in about 2 hrs you should hear ice drop and then refill with water. if there is ice in the mold, you most likely need a new ice maker.

Whirlpool refridgerator is leaking water on the freezer side (side by side refridgerator) onto the floor. The ice machine was overflowing with ice and has frozen ice in the ice maker that won't budge. We...


WAS IT LEAKING FROM INSIDE THE FREEZER OR FROM BOTTOM OF FRIDGE? ONCE IN A WHILE YOU NEED TO TAKE OUT THE ICE BIN AND DUMP ICE OUT AND CLEAN IT. HOW CAN THE ICE MACHINE OVERFLOW WITH ICE WHEN THE ICE IN THE TRAY WON'T BUDGE? NEED CLARIFICATION. SOUNDS LIKE YOU EITHER HAVE A BAD ICE MAKER MODULE OR THE SOLENOID FOR THE ICE ON THE WATER VALVE IS BAD.

Ice machine makes ice but doesn't dispense when the lever is pres


I would check for an electric "flap" that opens & closes when ice lever is depressed. My GE has one and it has been fouled before causing the ice to be stuck inside the door. Hope this helps!

Whirlpool gold moder GC5SHEXN503 side by side-ice maker not producing ice anymore--water dispenser works fine--laser lites seem ok---no ice jam--no water filling ice molds


Put some water in the ice maker and see if it will kick a batch out. If it does make a batch but does not make any more then replace the water valve. NOTE: the water valve is a dual purpose valve that supplys water in the door and supplys the ice maker. If the ice maker does not kick out a batch then something is wrong with the ice maker.One easy component to replace is the ice mold thermostat.

Our fridge does not make ice - Whirlpool Gold side-by-side GS5SHAXNT00


Same as others. Whirlpool Gold side-by-side. Water was running yesterday but minimal ice. Now that's gone and I don't even hear the water. Turned on/off the infrared sensor. Still get drinking water, just no ice in the bin. There's a couple cubes in the maker itself when I open the door (which I've closed completely). Help?

Whirlpool side-by-side refrigerator ice dispenser


First pull out the ice bucket and close the door.  Set for cubed ice.  Press the button for ice to come out and listen for a loud clunk noise.  That is the sound of the solenoid.  You can open the door, hold the light switch and press the button and watch for the solenoid moving up and down.  Solenoid is at the back of the freezer in a little square opening where the rod on the ice bucket goes into.  If that solenoid is moving ok then put the bucket back in while the solenoid is in the down position and cubes should work.  If solenoid is not working then it will need to be replaced.  Let me know what you find.
