Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

The LED flashing only 2 times in sequence means that the optics for the ice maker are blocked or defective.

Download this manual: http://adcxns1.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/8527f904cc8ea8cd85256b5800672333/$FILE/4322658A.pdf and perform the optics test On page 28 of the file if your refergerator was manufatured in 2002 or after. Otherwise use the test on page 26. Thee is a possibility that if the optics path is clear and it continues to flash 2 times that both emitter and receiver board will have to be replaced.

Just note that the activation of the door switch and check times are critical to get a good test result.

Should you require parts you can enter your model number on this page to see the diagrams:

Ice maker stopped working, red light is flashing, however water is working? What is the problem, how do I fix?


For the red light try removing or replacing your filter.

The ice maker usually has a make ice bar about it inside the freezer. The down position is usually on.

Icemaker not working- red light flashes constantly


The red light should flash twice , pause then flash twice constantly . If you close the flap on the left side , then the light should go off . This shows the optics (ice maker cut off ) are good .

Check the black tube ( fill tube ) , which puts water into the ice maker , to see if it is iced inside . If so , then the water valve behind the refrig is bad . It seeps into the tube and freezes , blocking the water flow .

Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If it freezes and dumps , then the water valve needs replaced . If it doesn't dump , and stays frozen in the ice maker , replace the ice maker . Also , make sure the coils under the front of the refrig are clean , as this will cause warmer temp in the freezer and the ice maker needs 5 degrees to operate .

Freezer stopped working


Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary
