This is mineral deposits that can clog the line and the actual manifold that is used to fill the ice tray. i would purge the lines and wash out the manifold with a mineral cleanser non corrosive solution.

ICE MAKER NOT MAKING ICE AND LEAKING


Your ICE MAKER may be blocked in some way [CLEAN water inlet lines &/or replace the in-line FILTER] OR the THERMOSTAT could be faulty [in an older unit]. Check all in-line water pipe connections for leaks AND/OR damage from any rodents you may have had in your home. This is particularly prevalent in tropical areas and when inlet lines are made from any type of nylon/plastic material. ALSO check your DOOR SEALS as this will sometimes cause this type of problem. It is also possible that the INSULATION in your older unit may be breaking down [you will notice moisture/"sweating" on the outer case surfaces which would indicate this type of fault].

Ice not forming in ice tray


Hi - there are several problems that can cause this - but ultimately, if your freezer is keeping frozen foods frozen, the problem is lack of water flow.

Most automatic ice makers work on a timer. At a regular interval, if the ice maker arm is down to signal a "not full" ice bin, the heater on the bottom of the ice form turns on to break the bond between the ice and the mold. After a short time, the wiper linkage turns to allow the wipers push the individual cubes out of the mold and fall into the bin. After that, the solenoid on the water line is energized that will allow the water to flow to the ice maker to fill the mold, and then shuts off.

The water may pass through the filter inside your fridge (if equipped) and the filter may be clogged (if you can dispense water from your fridge and it works - this not likely to be the problem). Some fridges require a filter to be present - other will work without a filter - but none will work with a clogged (or frozen) filter. Make sure the fresh food compartment of the fridge is not freezing the filter.

Most of the ice maker functions are silent - except for the sounds of the ice dropping into the bin, and in some cases, the "snapping" or "clicking" of the water solenoid turning on and off (coupled with the sound of water running).

See if you can hear this happening. If you do, the problem could the either the flexible water line or the point of the water line attachment to the cold water pipe in the house. If you moved the fridge out for any reason, it is possible that the water line has been kinked or crushed when the fridge was moved back into position. If it has been undisturbed, it may be related to the valve that supplies water to the fridge. Sometimes, a clamp-on pipe piercing valve is used to connect the smaller fridge water line to the cold water pipe in the house. It is not unusual for these to give trouble after several years - particularly in areas with "hard" water. It may be worthwhile to replace this if it has been installed for some time.

Lastly, it may be the ice maker itself. It has heaters, switches and motors - any of which can fail and cause trouble. You could pour water into the the maker with a watering can or similar and let it make ice as normal. If ice is never dropped into the bin, then something on or cabling to the maker itself has failed and will likely require professional service or replacement as an assembly.

These should get you going and may pinpoint the issue - good luck!

The ice maker isn't working. There is no water in the line.


I have a similar problem for my LSC27911ST. There is no water coming out from the dispenser, although ice maker seems to be working.

I didn't do anything other than keep trying water dispenser in hope that water can be drawn out from the inner pipes.

After opening the freezer door a number of times, tried dispense ice and then tried dispensing water a number of times, eventually water come out again.

Maybe the water line in the refrigerator was frozen. It is very hot today, and maybe the refrigerator over work too much.

Ice maker stopped making ice yesterday. I changed the water filter, but it still hasn't done anything There are no ice cubes jammed.


the icemaker line from the basement to the fridge may be bad, clogged or the little fitting they put on the water pipe to connect the plastic line to your fridge could have sentiment in it, clogging the water. Ice Maker needs a certain amount of pressure in line to work properly!

Turned Whirpoll ED22PE off and moved to install new flooring. Put back to previous location, connected water and elect...would not make ice. Someone said it has a temp sensor and must be 10 deg b4 making...


If the water valve is leaking a bit, it will cause freezeup, as will a flow restriction. The 'water splashed inside freezer' sounds like leaky shut-off valve.

Sometimes those 'saddle pirecing' water shutoff valves get restricted, so you are not getting enough pressure.

Also, if you had things disconnected, a little bit of grit may be in the filter or shut-off valve, causing issues.

I would:

a) check the house water pressure, to make sure it's normal

b) check/clean/replace fridge water filter

c) inspect/replace saddle valve and look for kinked water feed line

d) backflush water out of fridge, if possible, and look at clean/inspect/replace water valve.

Although they do make add-on heater kits for water maker feed lines, your issue just sounds like a water flow issue...either a leaky valve or a flow restriction.

Ge fridge- water dispenser in door wont work yet ice maker does.


There are a few reasons for this. Most common, is the water filter. After a period of time(literage usage) the filter eventually blocks up.Flow will not continue until a new one is installed. On occasion, the water line in the freezer ices up, but doesn't often happen. If so, you will need to defrost freezer until pipe is no longer iced up(set freezer to about -20 degrees celsius).or very possible, water solenoid at the back of the fridge has gone faulty.You will need help with this check,There will be 2 valves. Very possibly it will be the RHS one at the back. Switch water supply off at the back then go to the water solenoids at the back of the fridge.and disconnect the one pipe on the solenoid that leads into the fridge. Open fridge water tap again and ask member to quickly press water dispenser lever.Note if water squirts out for that brief period.. If not, reconnect pipe again then do the same disconnection to the second solenoid. If no water comes out then,(make sure water is open), then the water valve needs to be replaced.

Ice maker is leaking water into the ice container making a block of ice . leak seems to be in the front of the mold and heater assembly thanks for your help in advance


make sure your fridge is level. if water just keeps flowing, there may be an obstruction in the solenoid valve that lets the water flow or stops it. it's in the rear of the fridge where the water line attaches. usually blue or white plastic on a brass mount. you'd need to shut the water off, let it depressurize, disconnect the pipe (some water will come out), replace that valve, or take it apart to clean it.

Water dispenser inside fridge and ice maker in freezer part in bottom both quit working.


There can be many reasons for no water supply. Line feeding the refrigerator is clogged or blocked. The water control valve that turns water to ice maker and dispenser is defective or the water filter located inside your refrigerator is in need of change. I will be here to help you go through the steps. Let me know when you are ready, Thanks, Sea Breeze
