Ok, i would start first by checking the water lines. make sure they are not frozen. if so, i would raise the temp to the factory settings.Next, i would inspect the water valve assembly. if the water valve is malfunctioning, it will not allow the water to flow in to the ice maker manifold and tray. replace the water valve if it is not functioning.

Also, make sure the on/off lever is in the on position.

HI, I have a Whirlpool Side-By-Side Refrigerator model ED25PQXW01 and the ice maker isn't working, how do I fix it??


Hi

Check to see that the refrigerator has power and is working. Reset or replace the fuse or circuit breaker in the house if needed, especially if a power outage has recently occurred. Make sure the water valve is connected to the refrigerator and is fully turned on. Ensure that the ice maker is turned on. Some Whirlpool refrigerator models have a switch located above the ice bin; some models have an arm that should be raised up to turn the ice maker on. The arm is also located above the ice bin. Clear away any ice cubes that may have gotten jammed in the ice maker, bin or dispenser that may be preventing ice cubes from moving as expected in the system. Use a plastic utensil to clear away any obstructions. Contact an authorized service center for assistance if the above steps do not fix the issue.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Thank you for contacting fixya.com

Ice maker doesn't make ice anymore. The water works and dispenser levers on the door work for both ice (use store bought ice dumped into tray) and water. I replaced the filter after it quit making ice. Not...


you've already done the first thing i suggest, and that is to change the water filter. But if you still cant get ice made, you have a problem with either your ice maker or your water valve, or an electrical issue in the ice maker system.

Whirlpool ED5VHGXML10. ice maker not working. Water not filling


If you look in the freezer there is a wire rod that goes from the ice tray to the bucket that the ice dumps into. As the level of the ice gets higher it pushes up on this wire rod to shut off the ice making operation. When the level of the ice drops the wire rod is suppose to drop and the ice making operation is suppose to resume. However a lot of times this wire rod sticks in the up position when the ice level drops. You just need to pull down on the wire rod. Try that, I think you will find that this is your problem. Please let me know if that worked for you. Thank you.

Get me the model number. Put tap water in ice maker tray and make sure arm is down. Let it freeze. Wait and see if the ice will drop, this should allow water to come into the ice maker for another run. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Freezer does not make ice


You need to check and see if ice maker has any water init. if not check the fill tube that goes thru the back wall for stoppage while you have it out rin the maker thru a harvest mode and listen for the sounds of the solonoid opening. If tube is full you'll need to replace the slow leaking valve a common problem. for parts call 704-819-6557

Whirlpool side by side refrigerator, model # ED25PQ


Under the right side of the fridge in the back there is a dual valve for water and ice. Try changing it out, most likely the ice side is not working. Make sure you unplug the unit first

Whirlpool icemaker not working


the refrigerator has a duel water valve, one for the ice-maker and one for the water dispenser. the valve that the ice-maker relies on may be bad, or it could be the ice-maker itself.
another thing that could cause it would be the temperatures in the freezer. the ice-maker will not call for water until it reaches under 15 degrees.
