    Turns out that the water hose inside the freezer door was frozen. Hot water was the cure.

    Every time I've used the extra-ice button the water hose in the freezer door froze.

    Water dispenser will not work. The light works but the dispenser does not. When pressing the water dispenser you can hear the motor running but no water. The ice maker is in the freezer not the dispenser. The ice maker is working fine.

    Wow! It took about 10 minutes to fix the dispenser problem. Thanks! It works just fine now. I took the hair dryer to defrost the line. Great site to come to.

    When I push water dispenser paddle no water comes out!

  • Anonymous Mar 24, 2014

    I have a Frigidaire side by side refrigerator (model FRS6HR35KWO) that has suddenly stop dispensing water. The problem seem to occur between Friday and Sunday because the last time I used the water dispenser (the previous Thursday, it worked fine). Because there was no water coming out, I thought it was a filter issue (the refrigerator doesn't have a filter light) so I replaced it. The water dispenser still doesn't work. I can hear the water inside the refrigerator moving and my hose moving about behind the refrigerator as it always does but the water is not reaching the outside door dispenser. When I remove the filter from the inside of the refrigerator and press the water dispenser lever on the door, the water dispenses inside the refrigerator (where the filter would be attached) with no problem. Once I put the filter back on and try to dispense water, I can hear it working but no water comes out. I'm using a Frigidaire Pure Source filter RG-100. I've used this filter for years and haven't had a problem before.

GodofHops: The motor that you hear on the refrigerator is the water pump that carries the water to your dispenser. If no water is coming from the dispenser. You have to check 3 things: 1. If there's any water. 2. Water filter clogged. 3. Water line for dispenser clogged with minerales carried on water flow. SithPitt

SOURCE: water dispenser quit.ice maker works fine you can

You should not hear the noise of a motor unless you are trying to dispense ice. Is that the case your ice dispensor is not working?

My Whirlpool Gold side-by-side refrigerator GS6NVEXSL00 wont give me the ice out the door. It makes ice, but when I press the button on the door nothing happens. Seems like the button went out. HELP!


Does the water dispenser work? Is there a light at the dispenser panel, does it light? Do you hear any noises or motors running when you actuate ice dispenser? You could have a power issue for the dispenser. Some newer whirlpool models have an issue with the wiring leading into the door at bottom being so securley fastened to frame, the lack of movement forces the wires to bend, and in time break, with door usage. If water dispenser works, and you hear no sounds when the ice lever is actuated, then you have a problem with the dispenser panel circuit board. if water works and you hear some sounds when ice lever is actuated, such as a loud popping noise, then you have a bad ice dispenser auger motor, not churning the ice out of the bucket.

Water dispenser works, ice maker makes ice but doe not dispense


Remove the ice bucket/container from inside the freezer compartment. Examine underneath at the front of the container to see if ice cubes are lodged between the metal blades. If cubes are caught in this area, they will prevent ice from dropping into the glass/cup.

Ice maker dispencer motor won't spin. You can hear a click, and the ice dispenser light dims. The water dispenser works fine.


Best solution is to replace the ice maker. The ice makers are a cheap item and very hard to work on. It is easier to replace the ice maker rather than trying to take it a part and replaced the motor or gears. If you do want to take on the project you have to remove the ice maker and check the gears for a worn spot and the motor to see if it is still running. Parts can be purchased at a local appliance dealer. In tulsa we have Greers appliuances.

You have two points where you can check the dispenser water. At the rear where the water supply comes in is the water inlet valve. If you disconnect the dispenser water line and then see if the water comes out when you try the dispenser. You should hear the valve work when you try the dispenser. If you don’t hear it there is a dispenser actuator switch problem. If you do hear it but water doesn’t work here there is a valve or water supply problem. If it's normal, disconnect it at the bottom of the freezer door and try again.If it's normal here it may be frozen in the door. If this is the case open the door till it thaws. A blanket over the opening will prevent thawing of all the food.

Ice maker not working


The icemakers won't make ice if the temperature is not below a certain set point. Varies between manufacturers. Try making the temp colder.
