Re: Model ED20PK does it have a water filter and where?
Yes it can. Water filters will allow less and less water to pass through as time goes on. For that reason, resturants install pressure gauges before and after the filters to moniter water flow. If there is no water then the ice maker cannot make ice. Please let me know if there is anything else that I can help you with.

The gear that drives the mechanism that moves the ice out and allows fresh water to come in is damaged. In some cases the ice tray needs to come out so the ice cubes in the system can be removed by letting them actually turn back to water. Once you have cleaned it of old ice, try it again. Most likely a waste of time though. What I have done to save money is find an old refrigerator someone wants to toss and pull the ice maker out. Chances are they have the same plug and wiring. Better if you just go get a new ice maker unit from where they sell parts for your refrigerator. It is easy to remove. usually about three screws or so. about two on top and one or more on the bottom side.
Here is a check list to use to verify ice maker is good or bad or if something else is causing the problem. 1) Has the water filter been changed recently, or does it need to be changed? The filter being old can cause a reduction on water and lower performance of anything else that requires water. 2) Check the temperature in the freezer. Even though things are frozen in there, the ice maker requires that the temperature be at least 10 degrees F to even cycle. Ideal would be around the 0 degree mark. 3) Check the fill tube where water comes into the ice maker. From time to time this will get blocked due to water freezing in the tube itself. ********* If the first three checks all pass, either the water valve is bad and not allowing water to come to the ice maker, or the ice maker itself is not calling for water ********** Depending on the age of the machine it might not be a bad idea to change the water valve and the ice maker together.
No model # to reference. Althou alot of issues might cause problems, some are really mondain. (e.g. is the valve on, has any plumbing work been done recently, if inline filter how old is it). Checking fill valve, access valve area, remove from bracket remove tubing and wire connectors from valve. Use jumper cord and power each valve solenoid put valve output ends in glass to test. If valve sends water from each valve if OK keep looking. If refer has internal filter, hook all back up to test. would need model # to give more help.
your model will have a filter for it. it is located usually on the fridge side torwarss the top back of the fridge. it sounds like you need to replace the filter. it needs to be replaced every 4 monthes or so to keep the water clean. also you may put some water in a cup from the tap/faucet and make sure it is not the water it's self. if it is you may want to think about also having a water filtration system installed in your home.
You said, The ice maker in my whirlpool gold refrigerator Model No, GR2FHTXTBOO, is not working.
How old is the fridge? When have you last changed the water filter. Should be down below at the front grille! Try these tasks!
If the ice maker is not producing ice or not enough ice Refrigerator connected to a water supply and the supply shutoff valve turned on? Connect refrigerator to water supply and turn water shutoff valve fully open. • Kink in the water source line? A kink in the line can reduce water flow. Straighten the water source line. • Ice maker turned on? Make sure wire shutoff arm or switch (depending on model) is in the ON position. • New installation? Wait 24 hours after ice maker installation for ice production to begin. Wait 72 hours for full ice production. • Freezer door closed completely? Firmly close the freezer compartment door. If the freezer compartment door will not close all the way, see "The doors will not close completely." • Large amount of ice recently removed? Allow 24 hours for ice maker to produce more ice. • Ice cube jammed in the ice maker ejector arm? Remove ice from the ejector arm with a plastic utensil. • Water filter installed on the refrigerator? Remove filter and operate ice maker. If ice volume improves, then the filter may be clogged or incorrectly installed. Replace filter or reinstall it correctly. • Reverse osmosis water filtration system connected to your cold water supply? This can decrease water pressure.
