Question about Whirlpool GS5SHAXN Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

No water to ice maker

I am not getting any water to the ice maker but plenty of water to the water dispenser on the door, is there a way to determine when the water valve to the icemaker should be energized. I need to know how to verify if the water solenoid is being energized or if the valve is just not working.

There is a electric valve to only let so much water at a time ,and each time it dumps the ice that valve opens and lets more water in. The water line from the valve to ice freezing tray could be frozen or pluged. There is a switch when the ice is dropped it turns on the water valve.

My Frigidaire ice maker dispenses water when I use the dispenser on the door. I have been told it may be a DIODE issue. Does the LPHS2687KF0 have a diode?


Good Morning Jim,

I understand the ice maker is dispensing water when you use the dispenser on the door of your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# LPHS2687KF0. I also see that you have a Diode kit and are not sure if it would be this that is needed or a water valve that would be needed. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your refrigerator and determine what is causing the ice maker to dispense water. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-
