Question about Whirlpool Gold White-on-White 21.9 cu. ft. Conquest Side-By-Side Refrigerator with Ice and Water GD2SHAXLQ Side by Side Refrigerator
Ice maker is not producing ice. The ice bin level switch is working properly. I thought it might be the ice maker was not getting water (which may still be an issue), however I put water in the ice maker tray and the ice never dumped into the bin.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

SOURCE: Ice maker not dumping out ice
Your ice maker has a heater on the bottom of the tray that heats up the tray enough to allow the ice to release from the tray. It's energized when the ice maker advances to a point that the fingers touch the ice. There is a micro switch inside the head that turns the heater on. You will need to remove the ice maker to repair it. You should have two 1/4" bolt on the top and one or two on the bottom ( Don't know which model you have). If I knew the model number you have I could tell you what you would be looking at after you pull the front off the head of the ice maker. There are two major types. One you can test while still mounted and the other you can advance only. Once you have taken the unit out, you can ohm the heater. If it's good, your problem will be the micro switch. It cost around $8.00. If the heater is bad, you can replace it, but It's hard to do and I think you will find it will be better to replace the ice maker. I have replace a few and around half didn't work afterwords due to them breaking while installing them. You have to bend the metal over the element ot install and it's tricky to do this without breaking the element. I Hope this helps. Please rate my solution. Thanks

Tammi, you first want to check to make sure the water inlet tube to the icemaker is not frozen shut. Next, get yourself a jumper wire about 4 inches long with the ends stripped exposing the wire on each end. Pull off the ice maker cover, it will pull right off. Now you are looking at the module. On the module, left side, you will see two test points marked V and L. Insert one end of the jumper wire into V and the other marked L. You are now sending 120 volts to the water valve and water should fill the ice maker providing the inlet tube is not frozen over. If it doesn't fill, you either have a bad water valve or module itself. Also check to see if the clips that hold the center gear on the module are not broken. Catriver..post back.

When you open the freezer door the light should be blinking. When you hold the flipper door shut (on the left hand side) without blocking the beam, the light should stay on solid. If all of this happens then the optics are o.k. If optics are ok then you most likely have a broken motor module on the icemaker and should replace the icemaker thermostat along with it. A bad icemaker thermostat will lead to the module breaking. If you not sure how to replace these parts then I would just replace the whole icemaker. That would be easiest and usually not much more expensive.

You have a better chance of finding out that the problem is a broken moduele. The fingers that grab the ice and rotate it out they should be resting at the 2 oclock posotion. If stuck in any other posotion its broken. It's expensive but not hard to do. If you had a bad soloniod you would either have a frozen tube or a block of ice at the top

Most likely the water control valve on back of the refrigerator near floor or the thermostat inside the ice maker is defective. You can fill the ice maker with water from tap and see if it cycles one time or you can check the control valve solenoid that feeds water to the ice maker. Click on link below and then paste your model number in model search feature. That takes you to a page with breakdown photos of the parts I mentioned. On the left of your screen click on photo # 12. If you need help with this I am here, just let me know, Sea Breeze
