Model #WSF26C2EXY02. Why is ice maker not making ice?


When the ice-tray is full it pushes 'UP' a lever that shuts the water supply off. When you move the lever down all goes back to normal.

There is a small motor on the outside of the freezer that you can see if you look up inside the door opening for the water and ice. It may be a silver color and is not very big. On a Whirlpool it is between the ice chute and the water outlet. Also, sometimes the ice chute door freezes shut.

Why is the water running directly into the ice dispenser and running out of the door when we are not pushing the lever to get water?


Sounds like the water valve is stuck or the wiring or switch is defective. As both ice and water are a problem it sounds more like a defective water valve.

The ice dispenser and water dispenser on the door will not work


"Prepare for the worst" This is a problem i'm currently dealing with at the moment, ice maker thaw'd and refroze the ice as a block, binding the crusher turbine till it quit working. then water dispenser started spitting till it quit working, but anyway i disconnected the ice maker and water dispenser power hookup, because when i tried to use it it was drawing off the power of the fridge. now i'm to the point where fridge clicks like the relay is going out. in the back of the freezer below the ice maker tray i removed the clip or screw to where when it clicks i can hand spin the cooling fan on the click, and fridge starts up and runs, but don't remove this panel because having it on helps the air push into fridge compartment and keeps cooling elements from turning to a block of ice, " so long story short " its either your cooling fan or relay on chip board that starts cooling fan, i'm no expert but this is where i'm at hope it helps.

The outside door water does not work


Can I assume the ice and water are activated by two different switches? The ice switch activates the motor that dispenses ice. The water switch activates a solenoid that opens to dispense water. If you can, find the solenoid and make sure it's not stuck closed (tapping it with a screwdriver handles usually help persuade it a bit). I would tap the solenoid while pushing the water button. Listen for the solenoid to activate. If you can't activate the solenoid, find the switch and depress it with a small screwdriver. Usually, these switches are just simple little microswitches that need a little cleaning and coaxing

Hotpoint fridge dispenser works on water but not ice


If the little green lites show up , you do not need a circuit board . If you get a hum or buzzing noise when pushing for CRUSHED ice , then the auger motor is frozen up . Remove the ice bin and use a hair dryer directly on the forks which turn the dispensor . The heat will transfer into the motor , defrosting the armature . Try closing the freezer door ocassionally and pushing the arm to test if forks turn .

Water dispenser not working on my whirlpool american fridge freezer ? Changed filter a week ago, is switched on but no water coming out of dispenser?


Make sure that the water filter is the right one and that it is pushed all the way in. If that is correct than There should be two solenoids located behind the fridge at the bottom one is for your ice and one for water. Unplug unit and test with an ohm meter across the two terminals if it ohms out or beeps than your solenoid is bad. If that is not it than there is a switch problem at the door.
