Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators
I have a Whirlpool Gold Refrigerator Model GD5RVAXVY05. Yesterday after a big freeze up around the ice bucket, the auger no-longer seems powerful enough to push ice out. [NOTE: After a freeze-up (ice accumulates under ice bucket and all in ice chute), I always defrost and clean the ice bucket and chute.] When the bucket is not in the door, the drive shaft spins fine. When no ice is in the bucket, the auger and blades spin normally. I then put 5-10 pieces of ice in it and it now has a hard time with it. Could it be a problem in the blades or auger that is the problem or is the auger motor going out? Tried Solutions: Cleaning and defrosting ice bucket Removal and cleaning of drive shaft

SOURCE: Ice Dispenser Doesn't work...
sounds like the water coming into the icemaker is spilling over or leaking into the ice despenser bucket.... check for ice build up or plugging of water chut into ice maker

The first thing I would look at is the two solenoids on back of refrigerator. Each of the two have 2 wires. Switch the two sets of the two and then try the water dispenser. If the dispenser then don't work the ice maker should begin filling. If this happens you will need to purchase a new duel solenoid for that fridge. Hope this helps, Sea Breeze

When you press the lever to dispense the ice, there are multiple switches being activated. Chances are, the one that moves the motor to turn out the ice is bad. Or that motor itself is bad.

there is a anti-freeze kit available. u will have to completely dry the motor first. (if you hold it long enough the heat will build up in the motor and thaw itself)but will freeze right back.

Your problem is probably a broken plastic switch bracket . Pt # 2180226 . To access , use a butter knife between the dispensor grill and the lower portion of the dispensor cover . FIRST , remove the cover on the top freezer hinge , and disconnect the plug there . This removes all power to the door . Insert the knife about 1 " from the side , and push down and inward , to push the plastic tab of the cover , outward . Do the same for the other side . Lift upward to slip the top tabs free of the mount . Disconnect the plug to the dispensor cover , and remove the cover . The white piece with the 2 switches , probably has a short plastic stub , broken off which holds the ice dispensor switch . Looks like maybe 4 small screws , hold the switch bracket on . Transfer the switches carefully ,because you are working with plastic . When reinstalling the dispensor cover , after attaching the receptical , slip the top portion of the cover in place , and pop the bottom to latch the lower clips .
