Whirlpool Gold Ice Maker not filling

My ice maker quit filling with water and these are the things I have done to try and find the problem: Whirlpool Gold GD5SHAXLB02

1. Optics are good
2. Water tubing not frozen or clogged
3. Thermastat good
4. Solenoid valve checked with milimeter and that was good, filter not clogged
5. I filled the tray manually with water and it froze, but it did not dump into bucket
6. I removed the ice maker module and nothing frozen or stuck, cleaned it and dried it and replaced, turned down the temp and waited overnight with no water filling
7. Water does come out door

I'm not sure what to do next. I have not tried jumping T&H yet. With everything else that I have already checked, do you think I need a new ice maker module? Thank you for your time.

If your water valve is good and your filter is not in need of replacing then you probable need a new icemaker, yes.

Whirlpool Gold icemaker won't make ice


Try this and add tap water to the empty ice maker. Turn it on if off and if after the water freezes the ice maker cycles dumping the ice into ice bucket and if the ice maker does not refill with water on its own you will need to replace the=> 2188746 Water Inlet Valve
If the ice maker does nothing then replace the=>

Ice maker sotp making ice / red light blinking


J, As you open the freezer door the LED on the right should flash 2X with a pause repeatedly. When you hold the left side emmiter down the light should stay on steady. If you have this, you know the optics are good unless the ejector blades are not home. First thing to check is where the ejector blades on the ice maker are parked. They should be resting in the 2:00 position. If they are not, you could have a broken module. If they are in the 2:00 positon the next thing to check would be the fill tube. You want to make sure it is not frozen over. You can disconnect it from the back and see if you can blow through the line or visually inspect it. If all of the above mentioned check out, jump start the ice-maker. Remove the quarter inch screw holding the harness cover on the right side. Remove the harness cover. Pull the ice-maker straight out but be carefull not to smash the emmitter flap on the left side. Leave the harness connected. Get a jumper wire with the ends stripped apout a 1/4 inch. Unplug the refer and place the jumper in test holes T&H. Leave the jumper in and place the ice maker on the shelf where you can close the door. Close the door and plug the refer back in. Wait 30 seconds and open the door. The ice maker should be cycleing. Pull the jumper and place the module cover back on. Put the ice maker back in the rails. It should fill at approx the 12:00 position. Let me know how you make out. Catriver.

The Icemaker in my whirlptool side by side model ED5HVAXVL02 is not producing ice. The LED light just blinks Red. It blinks 2times then pause for 1 second. I have read that it means that the optics are...


2 blinks and a pause means your optics are good . Most of the time the ice maker is bad and needs replaced . Put about 2/3 cup of water in the ice maker and if it dumps , replace the water inlet valve AND check the black fill tube which fills the ice maker to see if it is frozen . If so , this is also an indication of a seeping ( leaking not closing completely ) water valve .

Ice maker is not getting water to make cubes.


The red light should flash, the most likely suspect is that the inlet tube that carries the water to the ice maker is frozen. If you open the freezer door and hold the swinging door in front of the ice maker up you will see a black rubber tube coming down from the top. If it feels hard it may have an ice block in it.

The best way to clear the block is to turn off the refrigerator or unplug it, warm up the tube with a hair dryer or for quicker unthawing take a turkey baster and squirt hot water into the tube catching the run off with a towel.

It can take quite some time and several cups of hot water to finally clear the ice. Once done it will take about 2 hours for the ice maker to cool back down and start a cycle to test it.

I have a kitchen aide side by side. Icemaker not working. Purchased new icemaker (Whirlpool 4322658A) and new optics. Old optics were bad, old icemaker mold heater burned out. New optics check out fine....


Good day,
Well your savvy, so, let's do it backwards.
Pull the power plug off of the water valve, and insert both prongs from a vom meter set at 150 Ac or higher.
Cycle the ice maker. You have time, fill is at the end of the cycle.
Just before the end of the cycle you should see 120 volts for approx. 7 seconds. Don't blink.
If you do get power, replace the valve. Jumping them will not always do the trick.
If no luck, then it has to be an ice maker issue. I've installed more than one that never worked from the time of installation.
P.S. You said the water line was not frozen. It's the fill tube that runs from the back of the machine into the ice maker that freezes and is a common problem.
If you can, remove the plastic tube from the bottom of the ice maker (it's the 1/4" inch smaller of the two if you have water in the door). You should be able to blow thru it freely. If not it's iced, problem with a filter ect.
This should be done first.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Icemaker not working- red light flashes constantly


The red light should flash twice , pause then flash twice constantly . If you close the flap on the left side , then the light should go off . This shows the optics (ice maker cut off ) are good .

Check the black tube ( fill tube ) , which puts water into the ice maker , to see if it is iced inside . If so , then the water valve behind the refrig is bad . It seeps into the tube and freezes , blocking the water flow .

Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If it freezes and dumps , then the water valve needs replaced . If it doesn't dump , and stays frozen in the ice maker , replace the ice maker . Also , make sure the coils under the front of the refrig are clean , as this will cause warmer temp in the freezer and the ice maker needs 5 degrees to operate .

Ice maker not working


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . Also , check the black fill hose that fill the ice maker , to make sure it is not frozen . If the ice maker dumps the cubes , then replace the water inlet valve . If the ice maker holds the ice , and does not dump , replace the ice maker . When you open the freezer door , the laser light , should blink twice , then pause ,repeatedly . If you close the flap on the left side , the laser should go off . These are indication that the optics are good . If you open the door , and no laser light , then that means that the ice maker is in the harvest (dump) mode . If it stays this way , ice maker is bad .

Ice Maker is not working on my Whirlpool Gold Refrigerator


I removed six screws from the ice maker to pull it out of the refrigerator.  Their are four screws holding the ice maker in place and two screws on the ice maker door.  Had problems getting the electrical harness disconnected.  Used hot water to removed the ice cubes that were struck in the ice tray.  Poured all remaining water into a bucket and re-installed ice maker.  As of now, the ice maker is making ice !
