hi there,

the icemaker is not making ice due to the fact that the valve solenoid may need replacing.

check the water line into the icemaker, to make sure that you don't have a water leak.

the reason the fridge is running is due to the fact that it's trying to remove as much warm air out as possible.

i would have a technician look at it.

If it's new (under one year old) then it's Whirlpool's problem.
Call your selling dealer or Whirlpool factory service.
Should be a free call.
If over a year, post back.. Jack

Ice despensor is switch is not working but it is still making ice that I retrieve by pulling ice bucket out and dumping in bowl or glass?


EDIT: Go to the end of my reply and try the last suggestion first please? Sorry, I got ahead of myself.

You should cut off the water supply to the fridge and empty the ice receptacle then you can start removing the ice/water dispenser cavity while looking for the switch that the ice dispenser actuates to get the motor turning. I would start there and use a multimeter (VOM) to test the switch, if it checks okay I would then look at the motor that drives the auger (screw looking thing that moves the ice to the dispenser tube).
Though, if you hear the motor running when you hit the switch? The ice could have just fused around the auger and gently as possible, breaking it up may be the fix the problem and you'll be good as new. Put your ear against the freezer door while pressing the ice dispenser switch to listen for the motor as it may be very quiet through all of the insulation without the noise of the ice that usually is getting pushed through?
PS: I would try my last suggestion before emptying the bin and checking the switch and motor as if you hear the motor running this will tell you that the switch and motor are functioning.

No water from the water dispenser.


a new refrigerator has a water resevoir that has to fill up. you have to hold the water dispenser down for a minute or so to allow this resevoir to fill.

if you have done this already, then you probably have a bad water valve.

My Whirlpool Gold side-by-side refrigerator GS6NVEXSL00 wont give me the ice out the door. It makes ice, but when I press the button on the door nothing happens. Seems like the button went out. HELP!


Does the water dispenser work? Is there a light at the dispenser panel, does it light? Do you hear any noises or motors running when you actuate ice dispenser? You could have a power issue for the dispenser. Some newer whirlpool models have an issue with the wiring leading into the door at bottom being so securley fastened to frame, the lack of movement forces the wires to bend, and in time break, with door usage. If water dispenser works, and you hear no sounds when the ice lever is actuated, then you have a problem with the dispenser panel circuit board. if water works and you hear some sounds when ice lever is actuated, such as a loud popping noise, then you have a bad ice dispenser auger motor, not churning the ice out of the bucket.

Ice continues to be made, about a week ago, the part that turns the ice to crush it or dispense it doesn't work, it also takes about 2 minutes when water is activated before it will finally dispense, all...


Open the door and hold the door switch down and try the ice dispenser. Do you hear any thing. Take all the ice out of the bin and try. Anything? Take the bin out and try. Anything? The motor is behind the back cover where the bin sits. See if you get power to it using a voltmeter. If your are, probably bad motor. If not dispenser switch.

You have a solenoid switch which switches the dispenser back and forth from crushed to cube. It could be stuck or not working or the parts connecting it could be disconnected or broken. You will have to observe to see if any parts are moving and if any noise is coming from the solenoid


You have two points where you can check the dispenser water. At the rear where the water supply comes in is the water inlet valve. If you disconnect the dispenser water line and then see how fast the water comes out when you try the dispenser. If it's slow here there is a valve our water supply problem. If it's normal, disconnect it at the bottom of the freezer door and try again. It it's normal here it may be frozen in the door. If this is the case open the door till it thaws. A blanket over the opening will prevent thawing of all the food.
