How do I remove the ice maker unit from my Whirlpool GD5SHAXMT00


You need a new water solenoid valve, this should be located on the lower left hand side as you face the fridge. You should be able to change it after you shut off the water. It just unplugs and there are just a couple of screws that hold it in place. The reason it is leaking is the valve is leaking through and it is causing the tray to overfill.

Have Whirlpool 19TFA manufactured 02-06. Water somehow drips on top shelf just below icemaker. Can't tell if from icemaker or not. Icemaker does not fill properly because ice cubes are very thin and...


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

Yes the inlet can be frozen. You can most of the time feel is with your finger if there is and ice build up by reaching all the way to the back and top of the icemaker where the inlet funnel is. Even if you can not feel it there can be ice build up.

There is a quick remedy for this if you have a hand held blow dryer.

1. Unplug the unit
2. Use the blow dryer on the ice maker for about 10 minutes or until it is warm to the touch.
3. Plug the unit back in and the dripping should not re-appear. It may take 12 hours or more before you know if cured the dripping problem.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Icemaker keeps freezing up after a couple of weeks of using then it becomes clogged with frozen ice int mechanical part of the icemaker


The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

My ice maker has quit working. The water is not filling the tray.


Pour 1/2 cup of water into icemaker . If it dumps the cubes when frozen , then check the fill tube going into the icemaker , to see if it is frozen solid . If it is , remove and clean and replace water valve ( drip seeping ) . If not frozen , replace the wqter valve anyway . If the icemaker doesn't dump the cubes , and holds the frozen ice , replace the icemaker , after making sure the coils under fridge are free of dust , lint , pet hair etc.The icemaker needs to be 5 degrees to operate , and , dirty coils could bring the temp up to 6 or higher in the freezer section .

Why water is dripping, i do not use the ice maker, it's either freezes everything or dirpping water


If you have no desire to use the icemaker, simply turn off the water supply by following the supply line to the valve. (the valve you're looking for has a tiny little "T" handle) The refrigerator has a solenoid valve at the back that admits water as needed for the icemaker. If the valve gets a contamination such as rust, it will leak. Replace the valve, or have it replaced if you wish to use the icemaker.

Water leaking from icemaker on outside


If this is your water dispenser leaking
Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out of it and see if you have a slow drip. Try the dispenser to see if it's just drips after use.

Whirlpool Ice Maker Won't release ice


Jetguy77,

I have a 1993 year (16 years old now) Whirlpool side-by-side with icemaker, Model ED22PW. I have had similar problems with the icemaker - water goes in, freezes, but ice does not eject from tray. It has happened to this unit 2 times since 1993. It turns out the problem is not the thermostat. It is the icemaker motor module. The icemaker has a small synchronous (clock) motor that rotates the ice ejector. When it goes bad, the ejector does not rotate, either because the module timer had failed or the motor itself has failed. The solution is to go to your nearest applinace parts dealer and by a new "icemaker motor module" for Whirlpool Model (your model here). Mine cost $58.85 the last time I replaced it in 2006. To install the new module, you will need to remove the icemaker from the refrigerator. Mine has 3 screws that attach it to the side. Also unplug the power & control cable. The water tube slides out when you pull the unit forward. When you get it out, it is then easy to remove the motor module and insert the new one. You may have to reset the timer on the module to get the tray to fill completely.
