Question about Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice Dispensing System

1 Answer

I have a Westinghouse side by side refridgerater with water and ice dispenser. The other day I arrived home to find water pouring through the back of the freezer section into the ice maker,and into ice container and out through the floor boards. I turned the water supply off., and cleaned up the water from the freezer etc,and defrosted fridge, and changed the water filter.I have had the water supply turned back on for a few days now, but it hasn't made any ice, and there isn't any water coming into the ice maker, but there is water coming out of the water dispenser.

Your water control has two sides. One side is for the ice maker and other is the water disapenser. If the ice maker valve becomes mechanically defective the water valve can allow water to continue to flow or not flow at all. Replace the water control valve and I believe this will solve this porblem, Thanks Sea Breeze

SOURCE: water dispenser in fridge

Possible problems could a bad water valve (dual valve), bad micro switch which is activated by pressing the button for water to come out. On some models the bracket that holds the micro switch could be broken not allowing the button to activate.

Look for obstruction at the drain tray for the freezer. Common to have plastic wrap sucked into that area.Or gunk in the drain line. Blow through line to insure the gunk is not an issue.

It may be just the water control valve on back of refrigerator. Put tap water in ice maker and lower lever for on. After ice is made, does it drop to tray? At this time when empty is the time the control valve is asked for water. The problem could be in valve on back or the inside ice maker itself. If you can try a few test with me I will help you locate the problem. Let me know what you find as I go through this with you. Sea Breeze

Our Westinghouse Virtuoso side by side refrigerator with ice-maker Model RS645V*10 will not make any ice. Would changing the water filter fix the problem or is it a bigger concern?


If you are getting water from dispenser, then changing filter wouldn't help. Is ice maker getting water? Is freezer at or near 0F?

Water and Ice does not work. Ice dispenser does not even turn.


There is a motor that turns the auger for ice at the door but it has nothing to do with the water at the door. If you are sure the water line at the door isn't frozen then I'd suspect the control board isn't working (no power to the motor or the water solenoid valve). These diagrams may help you see what's inside so you can look deeper into the issue. If you can, try turning the ice auger by hand (dump all the ice out first). Also check that melted ice didn't re-freeze and bind up the auger, etc. If you can leave the fridge off a day with the freezer door open that would melt any frozen water line, just to be sure that's not the problem. http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Frigidaire/6VV40M4Y.gif http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Frigidaire/P3WRBSB1.gif
