Question about Whirlpool GS6NBEXR Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Door on ice dispenser doesn't shut all the way.

My only problem is I don't know how to take the front panel part off so I can get to the problem and fix it. It's probably some as simple as a wire spring. One the left door where the water & ice dispenser are apparently visually there is no way to take anything apart. No screw that I could see or anything. Please help me.

It's actually not a spring, but what they call a solenoid.

On some units -
Look at the underneath side of the dispenser trim, usually there are slots to put a screwdriver into to GENTLY!!!! pry it out at the bottom ( may be stuck on with double sided tape). After the bottom is pried out ,you SHOULD be able to gently lift it up and off small tabs that hook into the top part of what they call the escutcheon. Then everything is right there for you to tear into.


And on others -

Often the front trim will come off towards you if you carefully peel it back with your finger tips.

Let me know if you need more help. Will be glad to try and find you exploded views.

Water dispensing into ice maker won't shut off


There should be a float or electronic water level sensor that will tell the water to shut off, if it has calcium from the water on it or the float is damaged it will keep sending water until manually shut off(pull the plug). I would look for a water level sensor of some sort and clean or replace it. If that doesn't work it could be a sticking water fill solonoid which you should then replace

Our whirlpool ( ED22TW) no longer has water line attached, but we would fill up the ice bucket manually. The ice auger doesn't work when we push the lever on the front of the fridge. What's wr


On the freezer door at top where hinge is located a plastic hinge cover also covers a plug where many times the connection gets loose. Insure the plug is together firmly and all the wires are making contact. If that is not the problem then remove the ice bin push the freezer door light switch in as you press the dispense ice lever while looking at the motor coupling.

I described the problem poorly, I apologize. The freezer and fridge are at the proper temperature (freezer is at 0, fridge at 40). I've checked and the water flow from the wall into the machine is good...


Hello David ,

Their are a few possible reason the ice is not being dispensed,

1) the door switch is bad...the door must be closed for the ice to dispense and perhaps the switch thinks the door is open

2) the switch that is activated when pushing the lever on the dispenser is bad

3) the dispenser motor is bad

4) the control board is bad

WATER DRIPPING IN DISPENSER TRAY DUE TO ICE MELTING AT FRONT OF DISPENSER


Hi Don,

Typically this occurs when the dispenser door does not close all the way.

The dispenser door is located in the freezer door in the chute that the ice dispenses down.

With the freezer door open shine a light up from the outside and look down into the door from the inside. If you see light around the door flapper, you will need to replace the dispenser door, if there is a large gap between the dispenser door and the chute you will need to replace the mechanism that controls the door.

Ge model gsl251frfbs side by side. Ice maker/water dispenser not working when activated. makes ice, just won't dispense ice or water through front door. don't hear motor activating.


I would check the door switch that turn the light on for freezer. When the door opens the switch changes to deactivate the controls on the dispenser panel and when shut should turn it back on. I will help you trace the problem because sometimes there is a broken connection from the dispenser panel to control board. Let me know, Sea Breeze

Spring on ice dispenser door came off but I can't get in to fix.


Remove the dispenser cover by gently prying starting at the bottom going round and round a little at a time to prevent from breaking it. When it's off the screws will be exposed to access the other components.

Ice maker and water dispenser front panel lost power


Check the power connection for the door.. It is either under the hinge cover on the top or under the kick plate in the bottom.. Just un plug and re plug if it seems like the wires are fine

Good luck
