You could jumper holes L and V with a 14 gauge solid wire for 5 seconds to start it.

Icemaker is making ice but will not dispense. continues to accumulate then over time ice in the bottom of the dispenser will freeze


I can think of two possible problems. The ice has frozen together and will not allow the ice screw to push the ice out the dispenser. Or the motor for the ice screw is broken.
1. Shut off icemaker with lever at icemaker
2. Remove ice container (either throw away ice or save in another container).
3. Put back empty ice container.
4. Leave ice maker off for about an hour.
5. After an hour , check if motor is working by trying to dispense ice. You should not expect any ice but you should hear the motor /auger moving.
A) If you do not hear any thing , you need to get your motor replaced.
B) If you hear the motor , mostlikely you had an ice dam which prevented the ice dispense from working..You can turn you icemaker on.

My icemaker has stopped receiving water


it sounds like your water valve is bad. you have a double water valve - one side operates the ice maker and the other side operates the water dispenser. the ice maker side of the valve is bad.

you can manually pour a little water in the ice maker ice mold and wait an hour or so - if it dumps the ice then you know for sure that the ice maker is cycling and water is not getting to the ice maker from the water valved

ICEMAKER STOPPED WORKING HOW DO I RESET


Hi,

On this model if the wire is in place and in the down position all you need to do is wait for the temperature of the ice maker to be below 10 degrees F and the ice maker will fill with water, the water will take about an hour to freeze and the harvest cycle will start by itself.

If the freezer is cold and you do not have ice within 3 hours or so and the wire is down there is something wrong within the ice maker module itself.

When you say you replaced the timer, was that the piece on front of the ice maker? (it is what I am calling the module)

Here is a link to a picture of a similar ice maker, the wire may look slightly different but should be in this position to make ice.

Whirlpool Ice Maker Won't release ice


Jetguy77,

I have a 1993 year (16 years old now) Whirlpool side-by-side with icemaker, Model ED22PW. I have had similar problems with the icemaker - water goes in, freezes, but ice does not eject from tray. It has happened to this unit 2 times since 1993. It turns out the problem is not the thermostat. It is the icemaker motor module. The icemaker has a small synchronous (clock) motor that rotates the ice ejector. When it goes bad, the ejector does not rotate, either because the module timer had failed or the motor itself has failed. The solution is to go to your nearest applinace parts dealer and by a new "icemaker motor module" for Whirlpool Model (your model here). Mine cost $58.85 the last time I replaced it in 2006. To install the new module, you will need to remove the icemaker from the refrigerator. Mine has 3 screws that attach it to the side. Also unplug the power & control cable. The water tube slides out when you pull the unit forward. When you get it out, it is then easy to remove the motor module and insert the new one. You may have to reset the timer on the module to get the tray to fill completely.

Whirlpool ED22DWXTN00 Ice maker


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.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!

Icemaker stopped making ice


remove the front plastic cover on the icemaker and you will see a bunch of little holes make a jumper wire out #10 or 12 house wire strip about 1/4 inch off the ends an insert in the holes marked t&h this will start a test cycle make sure you hold the plastic insulation so you don't get bit if the ice maker starts cycling remove the wire and watch for it to stop listen for the icemaker valve to open if the ice maker finishes and the valve didn’t fill replace the water valves if the icemaker doesnt cycle and you may have to kind of twist the jumper back and forth to get it to make contact depending on the gauge you used then replace the ice maker motor module if you hear the valve open and the ice maker doesnt fill check for a frozen ice fill tube that should do it

Whirlpool icemaker refrigerator model ED5LHAXMB00. Icemaker has full tray of ice but won't release it to the bin.


Need to check the heater on the ice maker with ohm meter to see if it shows resistance. If no resistance then replace the whole ice maker. If resistance is good then the best thing to do is replace the ice maker module and thermostat (bimetal).
