Whirlpool ED22PW water not reaching ice maker or front dispenser

I thought it was the filter but couldn't find one. Model 16 years old.

    Actually, current Whirlpool refrigerators don't need a filter to dispense. I'm not really sure about old ones.



    Have you disconnected the water tube that is behind of the refrigerator to see if there's water there? this could tell us if the problem is the water valve. Mount a water valve is pretty easy, you only need to be careful when you disconnect it because you can wet the floor.



    But we really need to check if the problem is the valve. In case that you need one, this is the part number of the valve an a place where you can get it->

    Just please, before buy any parts check if there's water inside the water tube that is behind the refrigerator. If there's water that means that the valve may be not the problem and then we check for voltage in the valve. The lack of voltage in the terminals of the valve could mean that the main board is not working properly or the problem is the ice maker that is not asking for water. Maybe we can solve the problem, but please check the tips that I told you before that.

    Sounds like the water relay located in the rear bottom of the fridge, pretty inexpensive to replace, also pretty easy to troubleshoot provided your handy with multimeters.

It doesn't matter if a whirlpool or any other brand is new or not, if you don't use an inlet water filter the water will taste like **** and sediment will deposit and cause catastrophic ice maker and water dispenser failure.

    Where is the water filter located?

  • clicker01 Jul 15, 2013

    I second Robert Sanko's suggestion to check the relays behind the cardboard on the low, back of your fridge. The relays (2 in one part) one for the icemaker and one for the water dispenser, vary widely in price depending on who you purchase from. At 16 years, if never replaced, these are much more suspect than a clog in the flow distribution path.

It's not making ice. Not sending water to the ice maker. I replaced the filter this morning. Water is dispensed for drinking , but not for the ice maker.


I just replaced the water valve because my water dispenser in the door kept dripping. Google parts for your model and put in water valve. It will cost around $80 for the part. My sic year old did most of thr reacement after watching an online video.

Replace water inlet valve for ice dispenser with new. When icemaker cycles it dispenses through the water dispenser instead of tube going to ice maker. I have switch lines around but can only get water...


The ice maker is what tells the water control valve to open so it may be correct now and the thermostat in ice maker may be defective. Part 27 or 627985 down below where it says Whirlpool Ice Maker Parts Breakdown and in that photo is the ice maker thermostat. If your ice maker has been used for many years the complete ice maker may be better to replace. Ice maker Model=> 4317943

Refrigerator dispenses ice, but does not dispense water?


Unfortunately, the housing that the water filter fits into is also the housing for the solenoid controlled water valve, and that is the most likely failure item.

I have been told his is a common problem with the icemaker in this model ref.

Whirlpool Ice Maker Won't release ice


Jetguy77,

I have a 1993 year (16 years old now) Whirlpool side-by-side with icemaker, Model ED22PW. I have had similar problems with the icemaker - water goes in, freezes, but ice does not eject from tray. It has happened to this unit 2 times since 1993. It turns out the problem is not the thermostat. It is the icemaker motor module. The icemaker has a small synchronous (clock) motor that rotates the ice ejector. When it goes bad, the ejector does not rotate, either because the module timer had failed or the motor itself has failed. The solution is to go to your nearest applinace parts dealer and by a new "icemaker motor module" for Whirlpool Model (your model here). Mine cost $58.85 the last time I replaced it in 2006. To install the new module, you will need to remove the icemaker from the refrigerator. Mine has 3 screws that attach it to the side. Also unplug the power & control cable. The water tube slides out when you pull the unit forward. When you get it out, it is then easy to remove the motor module and insert the new one. You may have to reset the timer on the module to get the tray to fill completely.

I have a Whirlpool ED5GTGXN000 and the ice maker stopped working. Water dispenser is still working.


The refrigerator has a duel water valve, one for the ice-maker and one for the water dispenser. The valve that the ice-maker relies on may be bad, or it could be the ice-maker itself. 
Another thing that could cause it would be the temperatures in the freezer. The ice-maker will not call for water until it reaches under 15 degrees. In addition, check the water tube behind the ice-maker to make sure it is not frozen, blocking more water from entering. The water does not go to the ice-maker or thru the filter unless the ice-maker turns on the water valve.
