Whirlpool ED25PE Side by Side Ice Maker problem

Saturday night water started flowing out of the ice maker slot in the door. It stopped after a minute or 2 but the ice maker hasn't worked right since. it stopped making ice that night. The next morning unplugged the fridge, for a while and plugged it back in. The ice Maker started back to life but barely. it has now maybe dumped 2 things of ice in 15 hours. Now there is ice ready again but it hasn't dumped it into the box for 7 hours. Just unplugged the unit again with no luck this time. With the problems I've read here does this seem like a control module problem?

    Edit, so the white wheel on the control module seems like it wants to turn but is having a problem. Also if it is a control module so I just call whirlpool for a part #? Thanks!!!

  • dhallihan Jan 21, 2009

    OK after removing the control module, i squeezed together all the contact points and put the unit back on and all is well!!! Yay!!!

    Water pressure went down due to a main break. The ice clumped altogether, so I dumped it out. Now that the ice marker is back in the water runs right out of the back and down into the bucket and out in the ice whole that you get the ice from.

sorry to hear that i hope i still can help check the fill tube that fills your ice maker see if it is frozen if it defroated with a hair dryer if there is no frost then you might have a bad water valve you see there are 2 selenoids on valve one for dispenser and the other one for the ice maker so if you don't get water it could be the valve look at the ice maker are the forks pointing up or down if they are down then you have a bad module on ice maker that is the front part of it. if they are pointing to 1oclock then check valve and tube

the icemaker turns the valve on. the valve does not decide on its own when to squirt some water. sounds to me like the guy nailed it. however if the ice maker is going through the cycles and sending 120v to the valve but no water then the valve is suspect. also you could have a blockage somewhere. was the repairman REALLY only at your place for 2 minutes? 45 is a great price for a service call by the way. you must not have a car and be unaware that the price of fuel is over 3 dollars a gallon.
I get 55-65 for a service call and it is considered earned the minute the doorbell rings. not trying to be rude but if the guy came and touble shot your prob for 45 dollars you got your moneys worth

SOURCE: Side by side Whirlpool fridge with ice maker as

If you have a whirlpool icemaker inside of your freezer (I've read on other posts that whirlpool ice makers are installed in various makes and models), there is a white cover over the ice maker (it's square). Remove the square cover with your hands or stick a flat head screwdriver in the side until you can pull it off.

Once the white square cover is removed, you should see a white wheel with gear teeth. In the middle of the white wheel is a plastic snap that should be holding it in. I noticed that one of the little plastic snaps was broken...which caused my "no ice" problem. A simple test is to push the white wheel toward the icemaker. If the wheel starts turning, you have found the problem. You see, behind the whhite wheel are metal contacts that need pressure for the ice maker to work. Without the center plastic snaps holding it it, the pressure is gone...and so is the metal to metal contact.

I previously called Whirlpool, searched all of the web...to no avail. Every other solution was "check for ice blocking the water tube" or "replace your water filter". That's all balony. If your regular water dispenser is working, you don't have an ice problem. And if your water dispenser is working, you don't have to change your fitler either.

If you realize that the little white wheel is the culprit, just google "whirlpool module" and you will see it for sale. I found one on ebay for under thirty buckaroos with free shipping.

Hope this helps.

Change the=> 67006531 Water Inlet Valve I believe the side of your 67006531 Water Inlet Valve that controls water flow to the ice maker has weakened and cannot open properly. Replace the water valves and I believe the ice maker will work fine, Sea Breeze

Ice maker stopped making ice


hi,

The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

The ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve.

First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.

It sounds like the water inlet for your ice maker is now frozen. Blast a hair dryer around the waterinlet to the ice maker for 5-10 minutes, reconnect the ice-maker and you should hear the sweet sound of flowing water

ICE MAKER


Your ice maker works off a different side than the water dispenser. Most times the water control valve is the problem yet it has 2 sides one for water and the other for ice. You can check the ice maker by filling with tap water. Let it freeze and if it dumps the ice and tries to refill I would say the water control valve part number 4389177 will need to be replaced.

If there is a reset button on your ice maker try pushing it. Many ice makers have two holes for reset. A general rule of thumb is if the ice maker fingers are stopped in a slightly vertical position then your ice maker unit is working. If the fingers are stopped anywhere else then it needs some sort of attention or replaced. Make sure there is water, or ice in the ice maker tray, if not then the problem is with water supply.

Ice maker not workin


ok as far as the water in your door goes sounds like the micro switch is getting a little gummy and sticking this happens when people dump ice in sweet drinks and some splashes up locate the switch and spray a little wd 40 on it as to you ice it is on a separate valve as the water in the door so the water flow don't mean a lot in this case remove the front plastic cover on the icemaker and you will see a bunch of little holes make a jumper wire out #10 or 12 house wire strip about 1/4 inch off the ends an insert in the holes marked t&h this will start a test cycle make sure yuo hold the plastic insulation so you don't get bit if the ice maker starts cycleing remove the wire and watch for it to stop listen for the icemaker valve to open if the ice maker finishes and the valve didnt fill replace the water valves if the icemaker doesnt cycle and yuo may have to kinda twistm the jumper back and forth to get it to make contact depending on the gauge you used then replace the ice maker motor module if you hear the valve open and the ice maker doesnt fill check for a frozen ice fill tube that should do it
