The replacement part number for your icemaker assembly complete is : W10190965. Some of the plastic pieces will have to be transferred from the old icemaker to the new.one.

SOURCE: whirlpool gold refrigerator icemaker leaking water

hi there,

sounds like the ice or water actuator or paddle is broken. purchase a new paddle and replace it.

the reason you have leak is because you have warm air entering through the broken part into the freezer.

can you provide me with the model # and i will send you a part breakdown.

Your unit has infered sensors on the frezzer left and right walls. There is a diagnostic test sheet brown in color in your kick plate.All you have to do is open frezzer door look on the right sensor it should blink twice followed by a 1-2 sec delay,if that is good press in flapper door on right sensor do not block path of infered beam you will not see a beam its invisable.Once you hold in flapper on right sensor the led should be solid.If solid optics are good if not solid led replace optic sensors

SOURCE: Icemaker is not making ice

check the fill tube on the ice maker to see if its frozen upo. if it is you are going to need a new solinoid valve due to it leaking thru the valve and freezing up.

Either the inlet valve is stuck or the icemaker solenoid is shored.

Most likely the second one.

Try using an hairdryer or defrosting the unit completely , this often get rid of blockage caused by frozen lines fixing the problem.

The water lines can also be unblocked from dirt using a thin flexible shaft. This after defrosting.

If all that does not fix the problem, then you may need to replace the water valve, the icemaker solenoid, or the whole icemaker assembly.

Ice maker overfills the ice tray, ejecting large block of ice instead of individual cubes.


What is your model number? Sounds like you may need a new icemaker. Sometimes when the icemaker motor goes bad it causes the icemaker to keep filling even though it hasn't kicked out the ice in there. Also, are you sure there isn't 2 valves on the refrigerator?

Icemaker is making ice but will not dispense. continues to accumulate then over time ice in the bottom of the dispenser will freeze


I can think of two possible problems. The ice has frozen together and will not allow the ice screw to push the ice out the dispenser. Or the motor for the ice screw is broken.
1. Shut off icemaker with lever at icemaker
2. Remove ice container (either throw away ice or save in another container).
3. Put back empty ice container.
4. Leave ice maker off for about an hour.
5. After an hour , check if motor is working by trying to dispense ice. You should not expect any ice but you should hear the motor /auger moving.
A) If you do not hear any thing , you need to get your motor replaced.
B) If you hear the motor , mostlikely you had an ice dam which prevented the ice dispense from working..You can turn you icemaker on.

I have a Knmore side by side fridge, model 106.55606400. The ice dispenser have stopped dispensing ice. The icemaker working fine,the dispenser motor makes a sound when lever depressed for ice.Where do I...


One is the icemaker will leak on the auger motor and freeze it up as you describe. If this is the problem the ice will be very solid (hard ice). If this is the case check to see if the tube that feeds the icemaker water is clogged with ice and if so remove the ice and replace the water valve. If not the icemaker may be overflowing, which is still most likely due to a bad water valve.

The other thing that will cause this is an air leak. If it is an air leak the ice will be frosty more like snow than hard ice. But even so it will still cause the auger not to work. If this is the case check the little flap that opens and closes to let ice through the door to see if it is closing properly. Then check the door gasket to see if it is sealing properly.

Turning the temp. down shouldn't help nor hurt your problem.

Door icemaker will not dispense ice. Motor starts


At the very least you have worn out coupler components. Determine what the motor issue is and replace it if necessary also.

Whirlpool fridge model # ed2fhgxkt04, ser # sm4434895. I am getting ice buildup in bottem of freezer. no ice on food or sides of freezer. where is defrost drain located to clear and or defrost it?


First off, if you get in a hurry, you can cause serious damage.
The machine must be unplugged, and allowed to completely defrost.
24 hours would be considered normal, but you can quicken that up some by placing a floor fan in front of the freezer compartment with the freezer door left open.
You can access the drain hose by removing the rear access panel.
Service techs then use compressed air connected to a hose and insert it in the end of the drain hose, and, BLOW AIR THRU IT GENTLY.
2 causes for this problem. one, the drain was in fact plugged up. Two, if the machine has an icemaker, the fill hose from the water valve to the ice maker is leaking, causing water to leak and then freeze in the bottom of the freezer.

Water from ice makers leaks and builds up in botom of freezer


ice maker leaks are usually a sign of icemaker mold corrosion eating the lining off the icemaker causing it to leak. the only repair is to replace the complete icemaker. you will need a complete model number from the unit and the part can be ordered online thru whirlpool or some of the other appliance parts sites. you may even have a local parts warehouse where you live. hopw that helps peyton

Whirlpool Ice Maker Won't release ice


Jetguy77,

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.

Ice maker is leaking small amounts of water.


Is the amount of water to much for the tray size , you can adjust it with the small screw behind the icemaker cover . is the line entering the back of the icemaker jammed up to far causing it to spray ? Or is the icemaker or refrigerator not level

Icemaker makes ice, but doesn't dump it.


If you have a steady blinking light when you open the door then the sensor is working. I these cases the problem is usually in a bad motor or thermostat in the icemaker. If you need I can give you instructions on how to change these parts.
