If water is overfilling the icemaker, and you have an older style icemaker, you can adjust the fill switch on the icemaker.
Pop off the front cover of the icemaker and you will see an adjustment screw attatched to a lever. Adjust the screw so the lever goes toward the - symbol. This will shorten the amount of time the water valve turns on to fill the icemaker. If the lever is centered between the + and - symbols, turn it about 1 turn toward the -. If it is more toward the + side, adjust it to the center. It may take a few adjustments before you get it filling correctly.
If it is a newer style electronic icemaker there will not be any adjustment on it.
If you will post the model number I will try to look it up and see what kind of icemaker set-up you have.

water pressure is fine but is the icemaker getting the right amount of water? the biggest cause of hollow cubes is as you know is low water pressure. another thing is check that the i/m is level allowing water to go all teh way to the head of the I/m. If you can dip your fingers in teh very fron cube mold and verify that water is getting all teh way there.
The sensor for mold temperature is at teh fron housing so that is why its important for water to get there or else it will sense water actual freezer temp instead of water/ice temp.

SOURCE: water dispenser in fridge

Possible problems could a bad water valve (dual valve), bad micro switch which is activated by pressing the button for water to come out. On some models the bracket that holds the micro switch could be broken not allowing the button to activate.

SOURCE: My ice and water dispenser is leaking

I am not an expert on refrigerators, but generally you hook a 1/4" (copper or plastic) line to a solenoid valve to the back of your refrigerator, which you then hooks up to a filter, which then ties into an existing compression fitting, or saddle tap on a cold water line (usually on the kitchen sink). Some refrigerators have a place for a filter to fit which runs to the cold water, and not an exposed rear solenoid.

I had a Whirlpool Model GD5SHAXNS in which the icemaker quit working about the same time (3 years old). I had water out the dispenser, I found that it was the icemaker itself failed not calling for water to fill it. I replaced it with a icemaker on-line for about $100 and problem fixed. I have been told his is a common problem with the icemaker in this model ref.

Why doesn't our new icemaker in a whirlpool ed5 fridge work?

Make sure water line valve is turned on where it taps in to water line,and that ice shut off is down not up, check to see if water is in ice tray or if it is dry if no water or ice is present then water is not getting to it if water tap valve is open then water valve in ice maker is off or ice shut off arm is up instead of down. Try pouring warm water in ice tray see if that will get it started.

Sounds like this is a water level problem. Too much water is being released into ice tray, which raises the water level above the depth of each cube form, causing one big cube. You can adjust the water level.

My fridge sterted to pour water from water dispenser instead of filling the ice tray.

There are two possible problems here. Either the water valve is going bad on the machine, or even more possible the main controla board, located on the back of the machine and can't be located by the silver square plate the covers it. Unplug the machine and remove the plate and look for any signs of burns or major discloration. This board controls everything on the refridgerator. A good place to order parts from is because of their awesome return policy.

My ice maker isn't getting water in to make ice. I can manually pour water into the maker, let it freeze, and get the maker to get the ice out, but no water comes in. GE model GSHS5KGX. Side by side...

Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects theb you need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking same part needs replaced.The water valve at the bottom rear of fridge.
Thank you for using fixya

Bad tasting ice

disconnected your water line to your fridge and let it rum in to a bucket so you will have fresh water for your fridge but before plug it back to your fridge pour a example in to a cup and drink it to see how it theist like. if that don,t solve your problem, there is a way to get rid of bad rubber taste on the water , but is kind of hard to do first you need to take you refrigerator out side because is going to be messy find some kind of water pump and a bucket and some hose. disconnect the water line going out of the water valve to your ice make and rig your hose together whit that one. on the bucket pour a full bottle of Synthetic vinegar "yes the same stuff you put in your salt", make sure is synthetic not the natural kind using a pump flush your refrigerator whit the vinegar, you can add some water if you need if there is two water valves do the same on both. good luck.
