When I press the activation lever to dispense ice I get a sound of something turning but the ice does not drop out and the arm in the ice ben does not turn


On most dispenser systems, there is a motor in the back of the bin that turns the auger to pull the ice up to the dispensing hole. You say you hear the motor. On the motor end is usually a fork type prong attached to it that slides into the back of the auger. It may have come loose and is not driving the auger. Possibly a bad retainer clip or a nut came loose.

Could be blocked up in the shute. remove all ice from the freezer and check that the ice shute (leading to the dispenser outlet) is clear. Let the freezer create a batch of ice (normally about 4 to 5 hours) and see if it dispenses then. If not , it could be a failed auger motor. That is the main corkscrew looking drive which pulls the ice into the shute. Check the icemaker in the freezer, and look for a button on the side or underneath the icemaker. Most manufacturers put one there to test the icemaker. Press the icemaker ice dispenser button and see or hear if the auger is turning.

in the past i have seen this happen when the ice ben is emoved and the drive impeller is not seated properly usually due to ice ect. Its a pain but take out the ben and see if the motor turns normally. you can hold the door switch closed by hand and have someone push the button for ice if the motor turns you have the problem i have said. If not your door switch is bad and needs to be replaced it controlls the power to the bulb and the ice maker motor. You can pop the door switch out with a flatblade screw driver but have a replacement on hand wire plug into the back of it the switch is an on off switch. Make sure you unplug the ref first electricity bites...

Water dispenser works, ice maker makes ice but doe not dispense


Remove the ice bucket/container from inside the freezer compartment. Examine underneath at the front of the container to see if ice cubes are lodged between the metal blades. If cubes are caught in this area, they will prevent ice from dropping into the glass/cup.

Motor does not turn to dispense ice when lever is depressed


The first thing I check is the door switch. As you know if the door is opened the ice chute won't function I would start there. I have an old manual from whirlpool that will give an idea HERE

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

Water dispenser inside fridge and ice maker in freezer part in bottom both quit working.


There can be many reasons for no water supply. Line feeding the refrigerator is clogged or blocked. The water control valve that turns water to ice maker and dispenser is defective or the water filter located inside your refrigerator is in need of change. I will be here to help you go through the steps. Let me know when you are ready, Thanks, Sea Breeze

On advice from the tech I removed acess door. It was covered by frozen moisture.
I removed the motor it was full of water. I verified 120 volts at plug to motor from control
by depressing the door switch and ice dispenser lever at same time. The motor ohms out
but because of amount of water removed from it I am going to replace it and see what happens.
