Make sure you have water coming to the water inlet valve and then check to make sure that your water filter is pushed all the way in. Next check your solenoids in the back of your fridge. With the power off take an ohm meter and test across the two terminals and it should not Ohm out or beep. If it does you need to replace the solenoids

Whirlpool model # ed5vhexvq1 side by side ...ice maker will not dispense ice..water works but it sounds as if there is no power going to icemaker from dispenser


Does the icemaker bucket has ice cubes. If yes then your problem is in the dispensor. If no ice cubes on the icemaker bucket then your problem is with the ice maker unit.

Let say Ice cubes on the ice maker bucket and dispensor makes noise when pressing for ice cubes. Then either your ice dispensor flapper is frozen or may be ice cubes in bucket may have defrost and frozen again sticking together.

I have a Kenmore side by side model # 25358672894. i have water flow through the door dispensor but no water to ice maker. i checked the fill tube and it is not frozen. the temp in freezer is 0 degrees....


Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. It's on the back where the water supply comes in. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

Parts inside my ice maker in the door fell out cant figure out how to get the front panel off the ice and water maker


Remove the top freezer door hinge cover and disconnect the plug there . This removes all power to the door so the refrig can still run while working on the dispensor . Use a butter knife slipped down between the lower portion of the dispensor cover and the main dispensor from the inside and press down . There are 2 plastic tabs holding the lower cover in place . After the lower portion is unclipped , lift upwards to remove the top portion . Disconnect the plug to the dispensor front . There are 3 or 4 screws holding the white " body " in place , so remove them and it should slide out a little ways to allow access to the inner workings .

The ice maker stopped making ice. Any solutions?


A lot of filters ( not all ) do not even access the ice maker . Only the water dispensor . If your water dispensor is working fine , then you need to replace the dual water inlet valve behind the refrig . This is the piece the wall water line connects to . It is called a dual valve because there are 2 coils on the valve . 1 for the ice maker and 1 for the water dispensor .

Ice maKer is not getting water but the water side works.


Your refrig water valve , has 2 coils on one valve . One is for the water dispensor , and one is for the ice maker . So even if you get water thru the dispensor , the other coil ( for the ice maker ) could be bad . The fill tube from inside the freezer to the ice maker , could be frozen solid , keeping the water from entering the ice maker . This frozen tube , would be caused be the water valve " seeping " , which means , it isn't closing completely , and drips freezing inside the tube . indicating a bad water valve . Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If it dumps , but doesn't refill with water , replace the water valve but also check this tube . If the ice maker does not dump the frozen cubes , replace the ice maker , but also check the coils under the refrig , for dust , lint , etc , needing to be cleaned off . The ice maker needs to be 5 degrees to operate , and dirty coils can keep the freezer at 6 degrees or above .

GE Profile Artica - Water & ice dispensor not working.


This could be as simple as the door switch or as complex as the dispenser control board. I would try the door switch first. When the door is close it turns on the dispenser controls. If the contact is defective in the door/light switch then this happens. Unplug remove the door switch and mark wire locations. 1 Powers the lights and the other powers the dispenser. and one is the power itself. Sea Breeze

The ice maker works, I poored water directly to the ice maker and it works, don't understand what you mean with alligator clips, should i just take the hose leading to ice maker off, the intake water valve...


Wrong! ok what it is you have a double water valve. 1 valve goes to the ice maker and one goes to the water dispensor. what you need to do is take the valve that goes to the ice maker by tracing the water line from ice maker to the valve and jump it direct with 110 volts. if you get water by doing that the ice maker is bad if you dont get no water that way it will be the water valve

Water dispenser


wow that's agood one!!!! theres a short for sure, just a matter of where. somehow your energizing both sides of water valve at once, sounds as if it would be behind the dispensor, at the switches. would remove the dispensor cover and have a look for a bad switch or exposed wire
