Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a Whirlpool Gold refrigerator, model # GD22DQFB00, manufactured in 03/98. The water despenser has started giving us problems in that it will only start despensing water after three or four depressions of the lever and then only after a four to five second delay. Any suggestions?

It appears that the lever switch is not making good contact and should be replaced.

SOURCE: no water pressure for ice maker or water despenser

Sounds to me that you attached a bulet piercing valve to a cold water pipe. If you did I would say the tiny hole that the valve put into the pipe has blocked up and causing your low water pressure. I have sen this problem a million times with that type of valve. You could try to close the valve and then open it back up. Sometimes this will clear the hole. If not I would replace the valve with the type of valve you have for your sink. there better in every way. You may need to have a plumber do the job for you but you will never have this problem again. Good luck

hi there,

sounds like the ice or water actuator or paddle is broken. purchase a new paddle and replace it.

the reason you have leak is because you have warm air entering through the broken part into the freezer.

can you provide me with the model # and i will send you a part breakdown.

Either the inlet valve is stuck or the icemaker solenoid is shored.

Most likely the second one.

SOURCE: whirlpool refrigerator ice dispenser no longer workds

Ok, I show parts that are available for that model, sounds like the control board is defective for your dispenser, or possibly the Ice maker control board. It also could be a break in the wiring or the control itself. Below is a break down for those parts, wiring and the control behind the push to dispense ice or water. Hope it is not that control because some places don't provide that part. Now if it's a connection problem that we can find, I will do mu best to help you solve this.Could you insure the model number is correct as this is very important? appliancepartsse@yahoo.com

If it's flooding, it's NOT the drain pan. It's probably the water valve has gotten stuck in the open position. Hope this helps!

Digital read out fluctuates on its own up to -24 and -3


This may not be the problem now but by the sound of the malfunctioning ice maker, it could be in the future. The start device on some models of refridgerator for maytag and whirlpool have been recalled. If your appliance was manufactured in the last 5-10 years you may be having an issue with this component. Mine recently caught on fire at this device that is located near the compressor. If you would like to be a part of the petition for a recall on this appliance contact me at jboooor@hotmail.com

Broken ice maker in whirlpool side by side refrig model no.ed2ghgxmq00


1. Check freezer temp. Above 5 degrees? Icemaker will not start. 2. Make sure there is water coming to the refrigerator from the supply line. 3. Is the refrigerator clean underneath? Fan running? Dirty refer bottom can cause high freezer temps, see #1. Ideal freezer temp is -5. Icemaker and valve should be checked by a service tech.
