Ice dispenser has black ugly gunk from which the ice drops. It is the rubber flapper that opens and shut that is dirty. Question. can the rubber flap be removed to wash?


It;'s possible, but not recommended. The pin that holds the door into place is metal, but the hinges are plastic and have been known to break pretty easily. They do make a replacement kit in case you break the hinges, but that job is usually best left to a professional.

My Whirlpool Gold side-by-side refrigerator GS6NVEXSL00 wont give me the ice out the door. It makes ice, but when I press the button on the door nothing happens. Seems like the button went out. HELP!


Does the water dispenser work? Is there a light at the dispenser panel, does it light? Do you hear any noises or motors running when you actuate ice dispenser? You could have a power issue for the dispenser. Some newer whirlpool models have an issue with the wiring leading into the door at bottom being so securley fastened to frame, the lack of movement forces the wires to bend, and in time break, with door usage. If water dispenser works, and you hear no sounds when the ice lever is actuated, then you have a problem with the dispenser panel circuit board. if water works and you hear some sounds when ice lever is actuated, such as a loud popping noise, then you have a bad ice dispenser auger motor, not churning the ice out of the bucket.

Ice Dispenser not dispensing ice


Remove the top freezer door hinge cover and disconnect the plug there . This will remove power to the dispensor . Remove the dispensor grill , and also the 2 screws at the bottom of the dispensor front . Lift the front up and out , and remove the plug on the front . You should now see the white switch bracket . On the left side , is the ice dispensor motor switch , when usually , one of the spears holding the switch breaks off , not allowing the ice dispensor to work . If this is the case , the part number is 2180226 . Only held on by 2 screws . When/if replaceing , be sure to put the plastic spacers in the correct position next to both switches , and be careful not to break one of the spears , holding the switches .

Whirlpool side by side GD27DQXFW01; ice cubes are not dispensing


We will need to check the voltage at the auger motor while depressing the dispense switch. If all the other features work on the dispenser panel while I would consider checking the voltage going to the motor. Some auger motors are in areas where water causes the voltage to be shorted by constant moisture. We will need to remove the panel and simulate what you have done on the outside but this time we need to see if the voltage has been altered or if the auger motor itself is defective. Sea Breeze

Open the door and hold the door switch down and try the ice dispenser. Do you hear any thing. Take all the ice out of the bin and try. Anything? Take the bin out and try. Anything? The motor is behind the back cover where the bin sits. See if you get power to it using a voltmeter. If your are, probably bad motor. If not dispenser switch.

WHIRLPOOL ICEMAKER DESPENCER STOPPED WORKING.


It is either the motor going bad or the switch at the ice lever. The little micro switch that is activated by the ice lever is likely held in place by two little, week, plastic pins. They break easily. After one pin breaks, the switch can still be close by the lever, but it is hit and miss. It is a ****** to replace the bracket unless you have some experiance. One other long shot would be the freezer door light switch that shuts power off to the dispenser when the door is open.
