Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a Whirlpool refrigerator model et22dq. The ice maker makes ice and dumps it but won't dispense thru the door. It seems to freeze in the ice bin. Could there be a water leak inside the ice maker? When I empty the ice and thaw the bin it will let the ice down until it freezes again. Any suggestions?

The ice door located in the ice chute in the door is not closing. Allowing wam air in your ice bin which melts the ice at the bottom of your bin there for making a huge ice dam. Replace cirercut board at cost of 295.00

Ice maker stopped working


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the icemaker . After freezing , it dumps , replace the dual water inlet valve behind the refrig . If it does not dump the cubes , check that the coils are clean under the refrig at the bottom in front , and if they are and the freezer seems to cool good , then replace the ice maker . NOTE : If the ice maker dumps and not refil with water , replace the valve AND check the tube which fills the ice maker inside , to make sure ice has not frozen inside the tube , which also indicates a bad water valve ( seeps ( not closing completely )) .

Ice maker not dumping...the ice is freezing but not emptying.


Make sure the arm is down on the ice maker. There is a heating element that warms the ice tray slightly so it can break the ice loose and dump. If the element is bad it would be best to buy a new ice maker. They run from 68 dollars and up. good luck

Ice maker no longer makes ice; water still comes for the filered water outlet but there appears to be no water going to the ice maker;


THE WATER VALVE IN THE BACK IS A TWO PART SYSTEM. EVEN THOUGH YOU GET WATER FROM THE DOOR THE ICE MAKER SIDE OF THE VALVE COULD BE BAD. CHANGE VALVE. B4 YOU SPEND THAT KINDA MONEY--DO A SELF CHECK FIRST--POUR WATER IN THE ICE CUBE TRAY. IF IT FREEZES AND DUMPS THEN CHANGE THEWATER VALVE. IF IT FREEZES BUT DONT DUMP CHANGE THE ICE MAKER.

Should be close to 10 degrees.
Is there water or ice in the ice mold? If not put water in it and see if it dumps the ice after it’s frozen. If there is ice, lift the cut off arm and let it drop to see if it will start.
If it does dump the ice but don’t refill with water.
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

My its not making ice at all what can i do?


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If it freezes and dumps , but does not refill with water , replace the water valve . If it does not dump , and the cubes stay in the ice maker , replace the ice maker . First , make sure the coils are clean under the front of the refrig , because , the ice maker has to be 5 degrees to be able to dump . Dirty coils can raise the temp , to 6 degrees and even higher .

Icemaker is not making ice


check the fill tube on the ice maker to see if its frozen upo. if it is you are going to need a new solinoid valve due to it leaking thru the valve and freezing up.
