SOURCE: ICE MAKER QUIT MAKING ICE ON MY WHIRLPOOL FRIDGE

I had a Whirlpool Model GD5SHAXNS in which the icemaker quit working about the same time (3 years old). I had water out the dispenser, I found that it was the icemaker itself failed not calling for water to fill it. I replaced it with a icemaker on-line for about $100 and problem fixed. I have been told his is a common problem with the icemaker in this model ref.

SOURCE: water does not dispense thru my whirlpool

Hello,


Take off the back panel in the freezer. 1/4" screws. Use a nut driver or ratchet and socket with an extension.
2. Behind the frost is the evaporator and the defrost heaters. One heater in the middle and one at the bottom. They are glass tubes. If you can see the bottom heater that is great. If not use a hair dryer and defrost only the very bottom to expose the lower heater only.
3. Now in the refrigerator section at the top where the controls are, take off the long plastic piece to expose the timer. The timer should be on the right hand side and have a little circle that is slotted. Get a flat screwdriver and turn that timer slowly clockwise just until it clicks and the refrigerator turns off. This will put it into defrost.
4. Now look at that heater that you exposed and see if it glows and gets hot. If it does, then the timer is bad.
5. If the heater doesn't come on then go ahead and defrost the rest of the evaporator with the hair dryer. This will take a little while. Don't poke at the evaporator!!!
6. Once totally defrosted look at both heaters. They should look like clear glass and see a silver coil running thru them. If they look discolored at all then the heaters are bad. The heaters come as a complete assembly with the defrost thermostat which clips onto the evaporator.
7. If the heaters look ok the only way to know for sure if they are bad is to check continuity with a meter on the plug at the end of their wiring harness. If you can check that then you can splice in a new defrost thermostat to solve the problem. However the best thing to do is replace the heaters and defrost thermostat . It is easy to install.
Follow these steps and this will solve your problem.

Hope this helpout......

Kenmore side by side,no water going into the the Ice maker


"IF" the unit worked before the filter change you have to check a few things. First I want you to run a few cups of water from the in door water dispenser to make sure that all the air is out of the line and out of the filter. IF you encounter any sputtering in doing this it means that the air is coming out of the system. Keep it up until the sputtering stops then let it make ice until the cubes come out. Most of the time the air in the filter takes a few days to process thru the system and start filling the ice tray.
Second if the water comes thru ok without sputtering after five cups then check where the water goes into the back of the freezer compartment. disconnect the fitting and check for ice at that point. if ice get a pan of hot water and dip that end into it to melt the ice in the tube and then afterwards, reinstall it in the back of the fridge and make some ice. You can verify that it is not a valve problem by putting the tube end in a plastic container and letting the ice maker go thru a cycle or two. water should come out and be in the container in the amount of water it takes to fill the ice maker tray.
Third, is the check process of item two. Verify if water comes thru the tubing to fill the ice maker, If not, turn off the water valve supplying the fridge and check for grit in the line clogging the opening in the valve. if grit is present clean it as best you can. IF you have the proper tools and knowledge you can back flush the valve and remove the grit blocking the valve..
This should clear the line and verify proper working of the water control valve and filter. If at any point you have a failure in the checking process it should point you to the failure rather easily. If you suspect it is the valve verify from the label on it the operating voltage and IF, AND ONLY IF, you have a knowledge of electricity and test procedures test the valve with the proper voltage applied. IF you do not understand electricity, do not do it. you might injure yourself or worse.

Goodluck in your testing.

Water is coming out of the ice dispenser


Hello. May be the ice maker is overloading water. Is simple to regulate. You must take away the front cover from the ice maker, then will see a regulator screw, move it about 1/2 turn to minus posicion and check if water still leaking from the ice machine. Or maybe the water valve is damaged and never stops the water inlet

Hello
Either the fill solinoid is bad or the inlet tube at the ice maker is frozen.
Try running a hair dryer to remove any ice that may be blocking the water from coming into the ice maker tray.
