Question about Whirlpool GC5SHEXNS Side by Side Refrigerator
Can an old water filter keep water from getting to the ice maker?
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 main reason behind an icemaker to make ice slow is the freezer temperature. It needs to be below 10 degrees. Also check the water inlet valve. Water is controlled by a timer and if its obstructed or slow filling, it will not make ice. You could also have a bad motor, defrost heater, or sensor. If these items fail, it usually won't make any ice. Check to be sure the electric plug from the ice maker is plugged in and check the water flow. However if it is filling up with water or if it just has a small amount in the cube maker. If it's making some ice, it's probably not a defrost problem. Check the voltage to the fill valve. Also replace the freezer's water filter, as clogged filters block water flow. Set the ice maker arm to "Off," and then twist the hanging filter cup counterclockwise to remove it. Rinse the cup under running water and discard the old filter cartridge inside. Slide a new filter cartridge into the cup and reinstall the cup assembly in the freezer.
