Re: My model ksrd25fkst15 is making ice very slowly.
Have you checked the water valve? It is in the back of the refrig to the bottom. Check that, if it is not bad you may need a new icemaker. No icemaker will make Ice unless the freezer is below 15 degrees.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The problem here is your water valve. It does not shut off all the way and allows very slow water flow through the water line. It is so small that it freezes in the supply tube causing a blockage. When your ice maker calls for water the pressure from the blockage pops the line out causing your leak.
You need to replace your water valve. Dual valve at the back of the fridge.."water inlet valve")
Problems with Ice Maker/Water Dispenser If you are not getting ice, make sure the water valve is open and the ice shutoff switch or arm is not in the "Off"
position. Inspect the ice ejector arm for blockage and remove any trapped ice with a plastic spoon. If you recently
emptied the ice container, remember that it takes your refrigerator up to 24 hours to produce ice.
Low water pressure is the major cause of problems with the water/ice door dispenser. Low water pressure can cause
inadequate water flow and small or hollow ice cubes. Check the water line for kinks that may interfere with water
flow and make sure the water valve is open. A dirty water filter can color the water and ice cubes, impede water
flow or cause water to have an off taste so remove, clean and replace it.
If water is leaking from the door dispenser, make sure the water glass remains under the spout until the water
shuts off completely. If you recently changed the water filter, air that was left in the line may cause water to
spurt from the dispenser. To flush the water line, let water run from the dispenser for approximately three minutes
or until you draw out 1.5 gallons of water. Try to find a container that will fit under the dispenser spout so you
do not have to start and stop to empty the container.
If the filter is the only change made.. look at the new filter.. are all the 'seals' etc removed? so water can flow through it? is it installed in the proper direction? .. .. or did you replace the filter because no water was flowing? If that is the case.. and the filter is installed correctly.. something is blocking water flow.. maybe a frozen water line or clogged water line follow the water line from the dispenser end in the door, back to it's source. If the line is white- try to run a thin wire into it to see if it is clogged if it is clear, look for a blockage. If no blockage.. then it is blocked in the 'pump' or valve area or the pump/valve for the water dispenser is bad. there is some kind of lever to tell the water to flow when you put a glass under spigot.. check that- to see if it is stuck ( my ref door light switch likes to get stuck) .. good luck.
Check that there wasn't a clog in the line after replacing the filter. Make sure you get water going to the solenoid, if so, it may either be a clog in the solenoid or a fluke that it's no longer working.
Have you changed your water filter lately. On many side by sides there are built in water filters that will slowly stop making ice and giving water because the filter is in need of changing...if this is not the problem write back and I will walk you through the other possibilities...
I've had the discolored water before when replacing the filter. It normally means that there was gunk in the water line.
Do you still hear the ice maker trying to draw water in?
If not, the water pump might be burnt out.
If so, see below.
The water lines that feed the dispencer and the ice maker split after a certain point.
It's possible that the line that feeds the ice maker might be clogged. You should be able to get to it by removing a few screws and pulling off the back panel of the fridge. Then you can check them out and remove the clog.
You said, The ice maker in my whirlpool gold refrigerator Model No, GR2FHTXTBOO, is not working.
How old is the fridge? When have you last changed the water filter. Should be down below at the front grille! Try these tasks!
If the ice maker is not producing ice or not enough ice Refrigerator connected to a water supply and the supply shutoff valve turned on? Connect refrigerator to water supply and turn water shutoff valve fully open. • Kink in the water source line? A kink in the line can reduce water flow. Straighten the water source line. • Ice maker turned on? Make sure wire shutoff arm or switch (depending on model) is in the ON position. • New installation? Wait 24 hours after ice maker installation for ice production to begin. Wait 72 hours for full ice production. • Freezer door closed completely? Firmly close the freezer compartment door. If the freezer compartment door will not close all the way, see "The doors will not close completely." • Large amount of ice recently removed? Allow 24 hours for ice maker to produce more ice. • Ice cube jammed in the ice maker ejector arm? Remove ice from the ejector arm with a plastic utensil. • Water filter installed on the refrigerator? Remove filter and operate ice maker. If ice volume improves, then the filter may be clogged or incorrectly installed. Replace filter or reinstall it correctly. • Reverse osmosis water filtration system connected to your cold water supply? This can decrease water pressure.
