Whirlpool GD25 replacing water line

The spout on the water line broke, so it shoots water straight out, though fun at parties, not ideal everyday. I purchased the replacement part, but need to know how I access the entire hose to replace, does the inside shelf snap out like a car door panel, or am I missing something? Thanks in advance. Nick

Re: Whirlpool GD25 replacing water line

Nick, this is a bear of a job. You may just wanna have fun at parties after all is said and done! 1.) Remove the door from the unit. at the top hinge, remove all screws and disconnect all wiring. Tilt the door toward you and lift it off the bottom hinge. Lay it on the floor handle down. 2.) Remove the liner. Peel the door gasket back a little... see all those 1/4" screws? They have to come off. (*NOTE---> note how the door gasket fits/tucks into the liner, it'll have to go back that way) After the liner is off, you'll see the back side of the dispenser area. Make a note of how all of the insulation and the wiring is located, then remove all of it. There you go! Good luck with it. Speaking of parties, you could actually invite your friends over and make a "drinking game" out of this one... someone takes a drink every time they moan and say "how does this go, again?" or "#%@^!**". Then again, maybe not... 'cause once you start, you HAVE TO finish. Otherwise the freezer would be open and you and all your friends would most likely be passed out on the floor 'til mid-morning! Moral of the story? Don't drink and do this job.

We have a gd25 whirlpool is not as cold as it should the coils need to be vacuumed

Yes the coils under the box and fan should be cleaned about once a year. Check fan operation in the freezer compartment as well as under the box, if compressor is running these both should be as well.

The water supply line to the ice maker on my Whirlpool side by side refrigerator is visibly frozen, and will not supply water to the ice maker. How do I fix this?

With the information given , I would say to pull fridge out from wall , and remove the 2 screws holding the spout . Pull the spout out and defrost with warm water . Reinstall the spout and replace the water inlet valve . Valve had to have a slow leak for the tube to freeze . A model number would have helped to give a more precise answer .

Stopped making ice eventhough everything is in its normal operating state.

Things to check first:
-is there water going into the icemaker (does your fridge produce water from the cold water spout ?)
-if not, then check the water line going to it
-if so then time to consider replacing the ice maker (very easy)

If you've had it a while then I'd replace it (they are easy to replace). Take a look at:

(I've ordered from them before - actually an icemaker that is running nicely 2yrs later)

Ice maker OK but water will not work? Whirlpool Estate TS25AF

hmmm, the only really way you will know if your water valve is working for the door is to jump it direct. unplug the machine get the valve out un do the line that goes to the door to the valve put a glass under the valve and jump it... if water then you have a door/control board issue.... no water than u need to replace water valve.

Water spout replacement

this is a surprisingly easy repair that you can do in about 30 minutes.
  • first remove dispenser cover: there are 2 slots on the very bottom of the cover insert flat tip screwdriver and carefully pry it off. then you should be able to disconnect a wiring harness and lay the cover to the side.
  • next move switch console out of your way: you will either have 2 screws or 2 thumb latches on either side. you may need someone to hold this out of your way for the following steps.
  • we need to disconnect the incoming water line down at the bottom hinge: remove kickplate and find the water line you should find a connector. while pushing the tube into the connect push down on the collar then pull the tube out of the connector.( you will most likely get a little bit of water when the tube pulls loose.
  • back at the dispenser: find where the tube comes out and remove any retaining screws, then gently pull the entire tube up and out of the door.
  • now do everything in reverse to finish up: the tube will push abck thru. when you get back to the hinge the tube may hange up I use a very small screw driver to line the tube up to come back thru the hinge. 
  • whne you reconnect the tube at the grille make sure that the tubing seats all the way to prevent any leakage
Be surre and be safe by unpluggin the unit before you perf any type of repair water and electricity dont mix. good luck Peyton

Water comes to the fridge but spills out rather than through the water spout

Water comes to the fridge but spills out rather than through the water spout

you may have a bad connection that may have to be tightened or a bad gasket that is leaking or possibly a bad switch that is not shutting off and lets the water through – please check you owners manual for the trouble shooting section for this problem as well or cal the service professional to serv ice the unit and replace the part
