Question about Westinghouse WRS6R3EW 36" 25.8 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator w/ Built-In Water & Ice Dispenser &...

2 Answers

I cannot get water out of the water dispenser and the icemaker isn't making ice.

I know this seems like an issue with the water supply, but water is flowing through the tube to the refrigerator. It doesn't appear to be reaching the icemaker or water dispenser. Any clues?

The ice maker makes ice for awhile and then clogs up with ice. How can I prevent this?

It's possible that the system is either no longer sensing that its ice reserves are full (if I am reading your question correctly) or that the water supply to the icemaker isn't shutting off, instead slowly drip flowing over the ice cubes until they solidify into a continuous glacier. I recommend thawing the icemaking system out and cleaning everything up with a bleach-water mixture, then testing your sensor and water supply.

Water will not stop flowing in to icemaker

Dirt in body of icemaker water supply valve. OR. Ice maker timer stuck when it selected "add water to icemaker.
The first solution is simple, change icemaker water filter and disassimble valve to clean.
The second is simple, buy a new icemaker.

I would really like some help with hooking up the ice maker. The line is there bit no ice or cold water, water is warm. Can you hep?


The routing of the water line is
house water supply into built i filter on refrig,
out of the filter into the water inlet valve on back of ref,
larger dimeter tube from valve into water tank behind crispers in ref,chills water,out to door,
smaller diameter tube from valve into icemaker

seeing where you said all lines are in place i believe the issue is that the refrig isn't properly cooling? the first to affected when not cooling is icemaker/water dispenser

Hope this helps

Our ice machine does not make full ice cubes. they are small and not complete, they are full of holes.

The icemaker requires a water pressure of 1.5 - 8.5kgf/cm2. It is acceptable if the water supply fills a cup of 180cc with water in 3 seconds. The icemaker produces small cubes if the water fed into it is not enough and lumped together if too much water is supplied. In order to obtain the desired size of ice cubes, the amount of water supplied to the ice maker needs to be adjusted. Adjust the valve supplying water to the icemaker or the unit in general in such a way that right amount of water fills the ice tray.

Icemaker quit working


First of all you need make sure that your freezer is freezing enough. Sometimes everything will seem to be freezing ok, but it won’t be cold enough to make the icemaker work. The best way is to squeeze your ice cream, if you have any that is.

Then you need to make sure that the ice level sensing arm is in the down/on position.
If all of this checks out ok, then you need to make sure that nobody turned off the water supply that is sometimes located under the kitchen sink. Also make sure that the ice bucket is positioned properly so as to trigger the ice bucket sensing switch.

If all of this checks out ok, let me know and I can guide you through an icemaker diagnosis by forcing it into a harvest mode.

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)
