I have the same iceing issue on my Whirlpool freezer. I agree that the ice cube door is open a little and could let humidity in, but it always seemed to be open a little in the past. Is there a defroster coil in this area that could have gone bad? I'm planning on replacing the "spring" that is suppose to help keep this door better shut, but how do I get to it? Do I attack this from outside the door? Can i remove the plastic trim around the front ice/water dispenser, to get at this area? There doesn't seem to be a way to get at it from inside the freezer door. There's no screws behind the air gasket etc... Do you know of any free, on-line manuals that would help? (I'm fairly mechanical and electrical and would like to give it a try)

Re: Same icing issue on my Whirlpool GD25DFXFW02
Paul, there shouldn't be any gap on the flapper and there is no defrost coil by the flapper. You are going to have to see if the pin retainer has cracked off the housing. If so, there is a kit, part number 8201756 that will repair this. I will try to attach a photo of how to get at the insides, but it might be too large for this site to handle. If it doesn't fly, leave your e-mail and I will send it there. The kit has complete instructions on the install..Catriver..post back.
1. Not sure if it is required, but first remove the drip tray.
2. If you look at the bottom of the faceplate you should say two gaps where you can insert a screw driver or small pry bar (careful not to scratch your finish)... Pry away starting at the bottom, and then the top should just come off.
3. There will be wiring connected to the back of this, be sure to document the connection pattern of the wires so there is no confusion when reassembling.
4. Pull out circuit board, which should have some visible snaps.
5. DO NOT disconect the circuit board or you will have a mess of wiring to figure out.
6. your dispenser cup should be easy to reach now.

If it's similar to my Samsung, mine did the same. There is a reset button at the front of the box which contains the ice cube tray. If you press it, the ice tray rotates to dump the cubes, then refills. Hope this helps.
If it's like my Samsung, there is a reset micro switch button in front of the box containing the ice cube tray. Press it and the machine resets, the ice cube tray rotates, dumping the cubes. It then rights itself and fills with water. Hope this helps.
Remove the ice bin, examine the metal arm on the back of the bin. This arm needs to move up and down freely, this arm is the shifter for the cube and crush setting. Also look at the square hole in the back of the freezer where the bucket came out of, the shifter in there needs to be down all the way also.
With the freezer door open, depress the cube setting on the door, hold the light switch and depress the dispenser button, do you hear a click? If so the shifter works in the freezer and the problem in in the bin itself. With no model number given, I have to assume the ice bin is not in the door, its inside the top portion of the freezer section.
this manufacture makes 2 seperate style ice buckets one in the door and one in freezer with a large ice bucket and auger screw that turns... first we will explain the one up on a shelf in freezer side up top... if you pull your ice bucket completely out of freezer... there should be a small bar coming out of rear toward bottom of ice bucket assembly now put it back in where you got it but this time watch where the rod goes... there is a solenoid in the rear of freezer actually called cube/crush solenoid and what this does is if switched to crush will raise that rod and activate the teeth in bucket to crush ice... if not will let ice fall out in whole piece...this solenoid sometimes gets hung or will freeze ...make sure with your finger you can move it freely and then watch it with some assistant pushing the switch for you does it go up when the handle is hit... the ice bucket in door works the same way except the componets are in the door and a little harder to access... repost with any questions if this doen not help you out...good luck to you
Hi. Use a hair blow dryer to thaw out the ice maker. Remove all of the ice, warm up the tubes, be sure the ice cube molds are ice free. THEN close the door and let it make ice. The first set of new cubes will take a long time, often up to 24 hours. Joe
The most common problem with this is the door/flapper is not closing snuggly. Usually a piece of ice holds it open but if this is happening all the time make sure the little ice door/flapper is closing all the way open the door and push it open and see how it is closing. If there is not water freezing on the left side of the freezer under the icemaker its self you have to have air getting into the freezer and usually its the ice door. good luck
The inside coating has come off the inside of the ice maker . The white " flakes " is calcium deposits , sticking to the exposed cast metal , inside the ice maker , and sticking to the cubes , after water freezing in the mold . You need to replace the ice maker .
if you lift out the ice bucket you will see the "gear" that turns the auger. The gear is metal but the part on the bucket is plastic and this can become stripped out. Also check that there is not ice frozen around the bottom of the bucket where an ice cube may have lodged the chute door partially open and melted some of the ice in the bottom creating a blockage.
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.
