Whirlpool refrigerator icemaker does not dispense ice cubes

I turned the water off to the icemaker this winter while I was gone for a few weeks. When I turned it back on the icemaker didn't seem to dispense cubes like it used to. It has been long enough for new water to enter the system after being off but the problem still exists. The cubes seem to freeze( I can reach in an detect the frozen cubes) but they don't want to dispense. The seems to be a groaning noise coming from that area that I hadn't noticed before. Any ideas??

I don't think the ice maker liked the water being turned off. Usually there is an arm that will raise up to a catch position that will turn the ice maker off. I hate to say it, but ice makers are best to replace than repair. The internal parts are difficult to change, and with a new one you will have no problems. They are not too hard to change. Shop around for a good deal, I use e-bay.

Whirlpool model # ed5vhexvq1 side by side ...ice maker will not dispense ice..water works but it sounds as if there is no power going to icemaker from dispenser


Does the icemaker bucket has ice cubes. If yes then your problem is in the dispensor. If no ice cubes on the icemaker bucket then your problem is with the ice maker unit.

Let say Ice cubes on the ice maker bucket and dispensor makes noise when pressing for ice cubes. Then either your ice dispensor flapper is frozen or may be ice cubes in bucket may have defrost and frozen again sticking together.

Ice maker stopped dispensing


Refrigerator - Icemaker Not Dispensing,or Not Making Ice Check that the feeler arm on the icemaker is in the down position and is not blocked. If the icemaker does not have a feeler arm make sure the icemaker paddle is not blocked under the icemaker. For more information on the causes of new icemakers not making ice. For more information on normal ice production. Side by Side models: The filter may be loaded with sediment that can cause low water pressure. The water pressure must be between 40 and 120 psi. Pressures below 40 psi may cause a malfunction of the icemaker (i.e. producing hollow cubes or no ice production). Test the water pressure: Dispense water from the dispenser into a large measuring cup for 20 seconds. If the measuring cup contains less than 13.5 ounces (400 metric centimeters), the water flow is inadequate. If the amount of water is less than 13.5 ounces then the refrigerator fails the test, remove the filter and test the refrigerator again with the by-pass plug in place. If the refrigerator dispenses the proper amount of water with the by-pass plug in place, then the filter should be replaced. If you no longer have the by-pass plug and it has been over three months since the filter has been replaced, you should replace the filter. If the refrigerator fails the test again and you know you have the proper water pressure in your home, you should call service to check the refrigerator. If the amount of water collected is over 13.5 ounces then the refrigerator passes the test and the dispenser is working correctly. Ice not Dispensing Due To Clumping Ice: Your dispenser may not be dispensing due to clumping ice cubes. The ice cubes in your icemaker may be clumping for a couple of reasons: Low food load: The defrost cycle radiates heat into the freezer. The ice in the freezer will naturally absorb the heat. This will cause the ice to melt slightly during defrost, then eventually freeze together in clumps. Increasing the food load in the freezer will buffer the warmth from the defrost cycle and keeps the ice from melting. Lack of use: When the ice bin is full, the pressure from the weight of the cubes can cause the bottom cubes to fuse and clump. To prevent this from happening, discard the clumped ice and check the bin periodically to ensure the ice is not building up. If you do not use a large amount of ice, move the feeler arm on the icemaker to the up position to turn off the icemaker and stop ice production. For more information on the causes of clumping cubes. If the ice bucket is not seated correctly, ice will not dispense properly. Make sure the ice bucket is in the correct position. Refer to Use & Care manual.

My icemaker stop working but the water dispenser still working I check both water lines from the filter its ok but can't check the freezer line by icemaker. turly don't know why the water will not flow...


If there is no ice in the ice mold of the ice maker, you can pour enough water in to make cubes, wait an hour or so for the icemaker to cycle.( freeze and dump the ice). If it does, then your water valve on the back of the refrigerator that the main water line hooks up to is bad. Replace it. The valve has two sides to it. An ice maker side and a water resevoir side. One side can be bad allowing the other to work.

If the ice maker does not cycle and dump the cubes then you probably have an ice maker problem.

Our ice machine does not make full ice cubes. they are small and not complete, they are full of holes.


The icemaker requires a water pressure of 1.5 - 8.5kgf/cm2. It is acceptable if the water supply fills a cup of 180cc with water in 3 seconds. The icemaker produces small cubes if the water fed into it is not enough and lumped together if too much water is supplied. In order to obtain the desired size of ice cubes, the amount of water supplied to the ice maker needs to be adjusted. Adjust the valve supplying water to the icemaker or the unit in general in such a way that right amount of water fills the ice tray.

No ice being made


Pour about 1/2 cup of water into icemaker . If it dumps the cubes but does not fill with water , replace the water valve ( the part that the line from the wall connects to on the fridge ) . If the icemaker does not dump the cubes , replace the icemaker . Be sure the coils are clean of dust , lint , etc... as this will not let the freezer get cold enough for the icemaker to dump .

We had a ice storm and power was off for nearly two weeks, wont d


When the power was off for that long period of time all of the ice in the dispenser melted. When the power came back on, any water remaining in the ice cube bin froze into a solid block.

If you raise the wire arm up and leave it up, no new water will come into the icemaker. Do that.

If there is a block of ice in the ice cube bin, use a blow dryer to melt it and discard it. Once the ice is gone, spray the auger with some PAM or other cooking spray to lubricate it a little bit.

Finally lower the wire arm down and wait up to 12 hours to get ice making normally again.

Icemaker doesn't make ice


If there are ice cubes in the icemaker sitting there waiting to be dumped then the icemaker is bad. If the icemaker is dry then it could be the water valve is bad.

The icemaker stop working on my Whirlpool side by side frig


If there are ice cubes setting in the icemake waiting to be dumped then the icemaker is bad. If the icemake is dry then the water valve is bad. You have one water valve with two solenoids. One works water in the door and the other sends water to the icemaker.
