Question about Whirlpool ED2FHEXN Side by Side Refrigerator
Our Side by side Whirlpool fridge has the ice dispensor in the door. If we use crushed ice, it gets stuck in the dispensor. Have been able to fix in the past...but this time it was bad. Finally got he tub out of the door (ice so stuck couldn't get it out). The flap dispensing the ice doesn't appear to be closing all the way. And now we think the motor may be broken as it doesn't seem to be turning with the tub removed. How can I get a replacement for the flap to keep air from getting in there and melting, thus clumping, the ice? And how about the motor. If it still doesn't work, I guess I should call a repair man?? How much does the service call usually run??

First pull out the ice bucket and close the door. Set for cubed ice. Press the button for ice to come out and listen for a loud clunk noise. That is the sound of the solenoid. You can open the door, hold the light switch and press the button and watch for the solenoid moving up and down. Solenoid is at the back of the freezer in a little square opening where the rod on the ice bucket goes into. If that solenoid is moving ok then put the bucket back in while the solenoid is in the down position and cubes should work. If solenoid is not working then it will need to be replaced. Let me know what you find.

sounds like either the dispenser motor is bad or the dispenser yoke is stripped. remove the bucket from the freezer. you will see a u shaped yoke in the rear of the disp area. this should be fairly hard to turn by hand if it turns easily then the motor gears are bad if the yoke slips on the motor shaft then you have a stripped yoke. hope that helps. peyton...
