I had the same problem with our Whirlpool Gold. Which by the way was just out of warranty. The guy who repaired the problem told us that since there were so many replacement dispenser motors at different supply locations that there must be a problem. I think that the root cause is the arm in the ice holder is hard to move, and it burns the dispenser ( #2252130) motor out. Whirlpool should get to the bottom of this and offer free or reduced repairs. Motor # 2252130

Dispenser door opens, but auger motor doesn't operate for cubes or crushed ice.


I believe that voltage to the auger motor should be DC voltage. Yes it could be a relay on the board causing this and it could also be the Auger Motor 2252130

Ice dispensing motor (IDI Motor) inoperative


I had the same problem. GS6NBEXRS00 is 4 years old. Intermittently the ice dispenser would stall. Usually in crush mode, but occasionally stalled in cube mode. A sharp bang on the front of the door or the back of the ice dispenser from inside the freezer would get it working again for a short time. Went through the same steps you did. Replacing ice dispensing motor 2252130 fixed it.

It would not hurt the motor as they are built to be exposed to some degree of moisture if the defrost does not work i would check and see if something is jamming the actual mech. up. In my ice dispenser i had stuff fall in from the shelf's and seized up the motor. Any how if the thaw does not work check out a motor at repairclinic.com (http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-106.53769202-%3d%3dc203i1057785&PartID=1057785)

Ice and water dispenser lock light stays on and comes back on quickly after pushing and holding. No water or ice dispensed while light on. Kenmore Elite 23.1 ft side by side refrigerator


I resolved the problem on my Kenmore Elite model 106.55616400 by removing the drip tray, taking out two screws that hold the panel, and disconnecting and reconnecting the wires from the panel to the board. Unplugging the refrigerator did not work.

New Kenmore Elite ice dispenser not working but water is


Should be no longer than 24hrs. Is the freezer good and cold.. has to reach a certain temp before icemaker activates. Might take little longer if you put a lot of warm things in freezer or refrig. when you made the change. Is there any water or ice in the icemaker itself? Water may not be getting to icemaker call them back out if it dont work soon thats what warrantys for :0)
