Question about Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice Dispensing System
I can hear the little micro switch click in the door when I push a water glass into the slot but the water valve on the back of the fridge does not pick .. the one beside it to fill the ice will pick and water will flo to the ice maker.... Question ??/ is there a Relay someplace that may not be working .. I feel sure that the current required to Pick the water valve cannot be supplied by the Micro switch on the door>>>
Hello , Actually that switch does open your valve in most cases. Some other models have a set of transistors tied into the valve which are external and next to the valve and not many units have this. You need to replace the dual valve if you don't see that set of transistors by the valve in the wiring , they kinda look like in-line fuses. Let me know if you have any other questions.
Also another way to make sure its the valve is by putting a meter on ohms with the power off to the unit connect them to the harness at the water side and depress the water switch in the door. If it ohms out low its the valve if not its a wire or the switch. good luck let me know how it goes.

If freezer door switch is not working, dispenser won't work. Does the freezer light go off & on when door is opened & closed? If you have a voltmeter, check that water valve is getting 120 volts when dispenser is pushed in. If no voltage, I would suspect the micro-switch that you hear clicking when you push in with a glass. Even though it clicks, the contacts could still be bad in it. However other than that loose/off wire, ribbon cable for front buttons off/loose, bad board, child lock are something that can make the dispenser dead.
