Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators
I have model GS6SHAXMS00 that stopped making ice. I saw that the water fill tube was frozen over. I cleaned it out and it made a full bucket of ice again. Once that bucket was full of ice again, the water fill tube froze over again. The ice maker still tries to make ice and I get water that sprays lightly out of the back of the water tube behind thefreezer. Please help. Thank you.
This is almost always due to a faulty shutoff valve. The valve is at the back, where the water line connects to the refrigerator. Turn off the water supply, remove the water line with a wrench. You should be able to take out the valve with a few screws and by removing one or two wiring clips and the plastic line on the other side leading to the fridge. A new one costs about $60 - $80 at a appliance parts store. Bring the old one with you, and the refrig. model number, and make sure the new one looks the same as the old.
The problem stems from the valve continuing to leak a bit of water to the icemaker after it fills the tray and shuts off. This trickle of water freezes and blocks the line, so matter how many times you defrost it, it will just happen again.
