Question about Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice Dispensing System

1 Answer

The Ice Dispenser on my Whirlpool Side-by-Side Refrigerator broke

The Repairman said that a small plastic piece had broken and that the whole door would have to be replaced. This refrigerator was less than 2 years old and has not had anyone abusing the ice paddle to make this piece break. I bought a Whirlpool brand refrigerator because I thought it would be the best brand to buy. Now I am told the hold door will have to be replaced at my expense. I had a GE Refrigerator that was 39 years old and was still working fine. It did not have the ice & water feature in the door so I decided to buy the new Whirlpool with this feature. Boy, I am really disappointed in this refrigerator. This is a defect on Whirlpool's part and I think that Whirlpool needs to stand behind their products and when this happens, they should replace the defective part free. If this was an automobile defect, they would have a recall of this model/models and fix them. What is Whirlpool going to do about this problem?

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.

SOURCE: Whirlpool refrigerator water dispenser not working

My older whirlpool side by side refrigerator has stopped dispensing water. The icemaker works fine, and I have adjusted the temperature a week ago so I don't believe the line is frozen. I do not hear any noise when the dispenser is pushed down, and feel that is where the problem is. The line is clear on the bottom of the fridge behind the kick plate, but water does not come out freely when I disconnect the couplings...
Any advice?

SOURCE: in door ice dispenser does not work but the water dispenser does.

check to make sure there is water or ice in your ice maker tray. If none then problem is usually a water supply issue to the ice maker. Behind the frig are the water supply inlet valves. One is for the water dispenser in the door. THe other is for the ice maker. However when one goes bad they both are replaced as one unit. Also Check position of fingers in ice maker. If not in a vertical position then try to reset the ice maker unit and worse comes to worse, replace it with a new one.

Refrigerator door stays open.


Sears came out and repaired my door with this same problem. It was a pretty easy fix. There is a small black part that the door rests on. It just was worn out. The repairman simply unscrewed the door from the top of the refrigerator. He lift the door off. The door normally rest on a black round circular plastic part about 1 in in diameter. It has a small plastic piece sticking up about 1/2 inch that the door rests on. This piece was worn on bottom. I have the Sears invoice and I bought a replacement bin for the door and I don't know which item is for the black plastic piece. Here are both part numbers so call Sears and order the correct part
CAM-DOOR 46 106 4318165 1 or $14.83
SUB TRIM-DOO 46 106 2156022K 1 $12.48
It took the Sear's guy about 10 minutes to repair. So save yourself $200 and do it yourself.

There is a picture of the part in the Whirlpool Manual, under Door Removal, look at the bottom hinge.

Email me if you need another picture.

Ice Maker Trap door may be broken


I am having the same problem. My husband took off the front panel and we discovered there is a small piece of plastic holding the ice dispenser door in place that is broken so the door doesn't seal.

I called Sears to see if the part is replaceable -- it's not. I have to buy an entire freezer door for $464 because a .10 cent piece of plastic is broken.

This seems to be a common problem. My refrigerator is only 3 years old. Perhaps we need to make a complaint to Sears/Kenmore together.

Housing dispenser broken at ice flap


Yes this is a common problem.  However, you don't have to replace the whole door.  They were wrong.  Whirlpool makes a fix kit for this.  You can get it at http://www3.sears.com/.  The part # is 8201649 and cost is $42.99.  The description will say door chute.  It is a door mechanism assembly.  It is fairly easy to install and comes with instructions.  Hope this helps.

Whirlpool pin retainer is broken on ice dispenser


this is easy. there is a small area beside where the piece broke off. bend a small peice of metal coat hanger at a 90 degree angle, (this is so you can make your new hole on the correct line) heat the end with a lighter, burn a smallhole thru this area beside where the previous hole existed. now throw away the old pin that you were using and use a piece of coat hanger cut to the right length. on one end bend about one half inch to 90 degree angle, feed thru new hole and thru your spring and flap and thru to opposite side hole and lastly make small bend to keep wire from sliding out. ta da, fixed. problem solved for about two cents. i have successfully repaired many of these doors.
