Cook, the problem is in your water valve... where the water comes from the wall and into the fridge. Yep! bad valve. Easy to replace, too! Post back with the right model number and I'll get you a part number and detailed instructions on replacement if you like.

No ice

Check whether the water is reaching the ice maker. If something is blocking its way get it cleared. Once it start taking water it should produce ice.

No water to ice maker.Ice maker quit making ice.

What I found was the problem was that I had not changed the filter on a regular basis.Because of this the water flow to the ice maker was restricted.What this caused was the water inlet tube on the ice maker to freeze up.On my unit it is a black rubber tube about 11/4 long on the right side.You can see it if you know what you are looking for.If you squeeze it you can tell if it is froze or not.You can use a hair drier to thaw it out or squirt water up into the tube .It does not take very long..To make sure it is clear disconnect the tube on the back of the fridge and blow into it.If there is no restriction the tube is clear.After you have determined the tube is clear add water to the ice tray so the unit will make ice this will start the ice maker to cycle.Its making good ice now.

Whirlpool gold moder GC5SHEXN503 side by side-ice maker not producing ice anymore--water dispenser works fine--laser lites seem ok---no ice jam--no water filling ice molds

Put some water in the ice maker and see if it will kick a batch out. If it does make a batch but does not make any more then replace the water valve. NOTE: the water valve is a dual purpose valve that supplys water in the door and supplys the ice maker. If the ice maker does not kick out a batch then something is wrong with the ice maker.One easy component to replace is the ice mold thermostat.

Whirlpool side by side refrigerator, model # ED25PQ

Under the right side of the fridge in the back there is a dual valve for water and ice. Try changing it out, most likely the ice side is not working. Make sure you unplug the unit first

Whirlpool gold ice maker problem

  • The refrigerator has a duel water valve, one for the ice-maker and one for the water dispenser (if equipped). 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. 
  • note: The water does not go to the ice-maker or thru the filter unless the ice-maker turns on the water valve.
