Need to check the heater on the ice maker with ohm meter to see if it shows resistance. If no resistance then replace the whole ice maker. If resistance is good then the best thing to do is replace the ice maker module and thermostat (bimetal).

SOURCE: We have a whirlpool refrigerator

that model number doesn't come up?did you check the fill line that fills the ice maker to see if it's froze up?get a hair dryer and a screw driver,stick the screw driver into the fill line,you might have to remove the ice maker,if the screw driver hits ice blow the hot air into the hole and keep the screw driver in the line,the screw driver will heat up and help get the ice can pull the fridge out and heat the fill line with the hair dryer on the back of the machine where the fill line connects in the back up top.if there's no ice there make sure water is coming to the fridge,also you can jump out the ice maker to manually check it to see what's happening to it,i'll look up a link and send it to you,just copy and paste it and it will show you how to jump out the ice maker and how to jump out the water valve,you'll have to pop off the front white cover of the ice maker,get a piece of wire to stick into the holes to jump it out.

Replace selenoid and water is still not going to ice maker

Did you pour about 2/3 cup of water into the icemaker and did it dump ? If you did pour water into the icemaker , and it did not dump the cubes , then the icemaker is bad . If it did dump , so you replaced the water valve , then the fill tube directly at the icemaker is frozen with ice . It will need to be removed ( fill tube at icemaker ) and the ice cleared out by hot water . On some models , behind the refrig , 2 screws hold the fill tube in place . Remove the tube , and clear the ice . When reinstalling , have someone guide it from inside the freezer , to where it mounts on the icemaker fill cup .

I have a Whirlpool side-by-side refrigerator and I can't get the icemaker front panel off to install a new icemaker kit in order to fix the frosting around the icemaker chute. How does the icemaker front...

according to the model number that you listed in the heading it just shows a cover door that slides out and down and is attached to the top freezer shelf. is this correct? If so pull one side of the slide and it will release the cover.  Now if your talking about removing the dispenser cover on the fron of the freezer door there are 2 slots on the bottom of the cover that you insert a flat tip screw driver and carefully pry the cover off. hope that helps Peyton

Whirlpool Ice Maker Won't release ice


I have a 1993 year (16 years old now) Whirlpool side-by-side with icemaker, Model ED22PW. I have had similar problems with the icemaker - water goes in, freezes, but ice does not eject from tray. It has happened to this unit 2 times since 1993. It turns out the problem is not the thermostat. It is the icemaker motor module. The icemaker has a small synchronous (clock) motor that rotates the ice ejector. When it goes bad, the ejector does not rotate, either because the module timer had failed or the motor itself has failed. The solution is to go to your nearest applinace parts dealer and by a new "icemaker motor module" for Whirlpool Model (your model here). Mine cost $58.85 the last time I replaced it in 2006. To install the new module, you will need to remove the icemaker from the refrigerator. Mine has 3 screws that attach it to the side. Also unplug the power & control cable. The water tube slides out when you pull the unit forward. When you get it out, it is then easy to remove the motor module and insert the new one. You may have to reset the timer on the module to get the tray to fill completely.

Whirlpool refrigerator stopped making ice.

If there are ice cubes in the icemaker sitting there waiting to be dumped then the problem is in the icemaker. If the icemaker is dry then you have a water supply problem, even if you have a water in the door working.
1.Check the fill line inside the freezer at the icemaker, if it is clogged with ice then remove this ice and replace the water valve.

2. Check the water supply. Turn the water supply off, disconnect the water line from the Ref, turn the water back on an fill a small glass. If the water supply is good the solenoid on the water valve should be checked. This is done with an OHM meter.

Broken ice maker in whirlpool side by side refrig model no.ed2ghgxmq00

1. Check freezer temp. Above 5 degrees? Icemaker will not start. 2. Make sure there is water coming to the refrigerator from the supply line. 3. Is the refrigerator clean underneath? Fan running? Dirty refer bottom can cause high freezer temps, see #1. Ideal freezer temp is -5. Icemaker and valve should be checked by a service tech.
