SOURCE: Icemaker not making ice, but metal tray full of frozen water.

Turn your appliance off and unplug it and remove nearby food to a cooler and use a hair dryerat least enough so that you can get it out.

SOURCE: Whirlpool refrigerator will not make ice

This is almost always due to a faulty shutoff valve. The valve is at the back, where the water line connects to the refrigerator. Turn off the water supply, remove the water line with a wrench. You should be able to take out the valve with a few screws and by removing one or two wiring clips and the plastic line on the other side leading to the fridge. A new one costs about $60 - $80 at a appliance parts store. Bring the old one with you, and the refrig. model number, and make sure the new one looks the same as the old.

The problem stems from the valve continuing to leak a bit of water to the icemaker after it fills the tray and shuts off. This trickle of water freezes and blocks the line, so matter how many times you defrost it, it will just happen again.

Your unit has infered sensors on the frezzer left and right walls. There is a diagnostic test sheet brown in color in your kick plate.All you have to do is open frezzer door look on the right sensor it should blink twice followed by a 1-2 sec delay,if that is good press in flapper door on right sensor do not block path of infered beam you will not see a beam its invisable.Once you hold in flapper on right sensor the led should be solid.If solid optics are good if not solid led replace optic sensors

Whirlpool side by side with water and icemaker. My water works perfectly fine but my ice maker no longer produces ice. It runs but it's not getting any water to make ice. What can be done to fix this?


There are a couple reasons your icemaker will not fill with water.
First thing you want to check for is a frozen fill tube to the icemaker. The easiest way to check for a frozen line is to remove the icemaker. Once the icemaker is removed look for ice in the fill tube. If there is ice in the tube the (water valve) will need to be replaced. You can melt the ice by forcing hot water up the fill tube.
Another reason could be the icemaker is not sending voltage to the water valve. The fix for this issue is to replace the icemaker. Hope this helps you with your whirlpool fridge!

The reason to change the water valve with a frozen water line is because the solenoid is not closing all the way. This allows water to enter the fill tube of the icemaker and freeze based on the temperature.

The ice make stopped working. There is ice in the water feed tube. The ice maker is full of ice, but it is not dispensing. Ice in the storage bin was frozen together into blocks.


The icemaker in it's operation hits a microswitch to turn on a warmer in the aluminum tray that aids in extracting the ice by the rotating vanes. It may be that that part of your icemaker has failed.

Try this for a solution first. Remove all of the ice from the bin. Using a hair dryer, melt the ice in the tray and the fill tube. Be sure to warm all of the switches behind the plastic front cap in case those switches are frozen. Let the ice maker fill again and see if you have made ice. Often splashed water will freeze the rotating vanes and will not let the ice maker rotate through it's complete cycle.

Ice maker is not making ice, but water from door dispenser flows normally. Ice in the tray (where it is made), but it won't dump into the holding tray. any solutions?


Greetings,

The first thing to check is the tube that puts water into the icemaker...this sometimes freezes up from a leaking water fill valve..if so, this blocks the water from filling the i/m....if its not frozen up and is clear(open) then your fill valve is bad or your icemaker module(if equipted) with that style...

Icemaker won't fill tray,


Was the inlet tube frozen. If so your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking and when the water reaches the freezer it freezes, blocking the inlet tube. Replace the water inlet valve.
You can Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

No ice


Pour about 1/2 cup of water into icemaker . If it freezes and dumps , the water valve is bad ( where the wall water line connects to the fridge ) . If it freezes and does not dump and the ice stays in the icemaker , replace the icemaker . Also check the fill tube ( the tube going from the freezer wall to the icemaker itself ) to see if it has frozen closed . If it has , the water valve is not closing completely , and letting a drop thru and freezing in the tube . Also an indication of a bad water valve .

My icemaker is not working. Water not filling tray


Probably the valve that feeds water to the ice maker leaks and this water freezes up at the filling tube to the ice maker and the water doesn't go through, but if the filling tube is not frozen and the ice maker doesn't call for water the problem is in the ice maker inside board ,if so you should replace the ice maker.

Ice accumulating in freezer


There should be a tube that brings water to your icemaker from the back of the fridge into the icemaker. This tube is frozen with water, or the inlet where this tube feed the icemaker tray is frozen. The result is that water cannot go to the ice maker, and instead, goes over the top of the inlet area.

Verify that this is indeed what is going on.

The fix is to remove the blockage/buildup of ice at the inlet. You may have to detach the icemaker to get to it. Be carefull with electricity! Also be carefull as plastic can break under stress!
The tube may be frozen to the inlet, channel locks can be used to gently twist the tube to break it free.
Good Luck!

Water not filling up the icemaker


it sounds as tho you do have solenoid prob.but it could also be an ice over sit at your water inlet tube that is situated near icemaker.
