I'm sorry I don't have a solution...I am having the same problem, except the water has stopped in the ice machine. I have the same make and model refrigerator. Is it common for the water valve in the back of the frigerator to go bad? Is the valve easily replaced? Where can I buy the valve? Is there a trigger in the rear of the freezer where the icetray connects? I also took my ice tray out and it doesn't seem to fit back in correctly. I'd rather take the ice machine apart myself before I call a technician who will charge me an arm and a leg! Any further advice would be appreciated. Thank you

SOURCE: Whirlpool icemaker not working

the refrigerator has a duel water valve, one for the ice-maker and one for the water dispenser. the valve that the ice-maker relies on may be bad, or it could be the ice-maker itself.
another thing that could cause it would be the temperatures in the freezer. the ice-maker will not call for water until it reaches under 15 degrees.

SOURCE: icemaker is not working on my whirlpool GS6SHEXNS00side by side refridgerator

I had the same problem--I live in an area with extremely hard water and have no filter---I dismantled the ice maker, cleaned it, put it back together and it appears to be working. The front cover (white module cover) snaps off--remove the 3 screws that hold the module in and remove the module(male end), it will be stiff but can be carefully pried off with a small to medium flat screwdriver. There are 3(three)---1/4 inch hex head screws that hold the ice maker in, 2 on the top into the side of the freezer, and 1 from under the ice maker--they aren't hard to find but it is best to use a regular length spin tight not a stubby to remove them. Remove the 2 phillips head screws that hold the "BLACK" section of the module to the ice maker and the spindle that rotates to move the cubes out of the ice maker into the ice bin will come out of the ice maker952467
and the plastic separator fingers will come off the ice maker too. Now that it is disassembled you can clean everything and reassemble. Mine had a small build up of 'white' residue that was apparently keeping the spindle from turning and removing the cubes to the bin. This is not a difficult repair and I'm sure it saved me a couple hundred bucks---what have you got to lose--it ain't workin' now so the worst that can happen is you gotta buy some more ice cube trays--LOL. If you have any questions shoot me an email kf4sbs@aol.com

SOURCE: Whirlpool Refrigerator Model ED25PW Ice maker tray not filling with water

  1. Check to see if water is flowing @ the water inlet valve @ the rear of the unit. You can remove it and clean if out-then put it back in service. You can purchase a new valve -- maybe @ home depot.

How to remove icemaker from whrilpool ultraease refridgerator


I had a simular problem with my Whirlpool frig--First of all I would check 1/4 inch plastic line coming from water valve up to ice maker,loosen this line & try to blow thru it -if there is an obstruction it probably is frozen inside plastic fitting at top where it goes thru cabinet & into ice maker if so you can melt by by running a very warm metal object up & inside fitting be patient, you need to both inside & outside--If this the problem,your water valve is probaly bad because of not shutting off properly causing the "drip effect" you can purchase valve on line for aprox $10.00--$25.00 Good Luck--John Morris--

Will not fill icemaker with water.


This is usually caused by the main control module or water inlet valve going faulty and will need a service engineer visit

Icemaker not working


In most cases, this will be a water valve inlet issue. check the water valves operational value. you can use a ohm or volt meter to test the terminal clips on the valve assembly. if the meter picks up resistance and the valve isn't allowing proper water flow, replace the valve Assembly asap.

I am getting no water to go into my ice maker ,m


Whenever water is run to a refrigerator icemaker there is a filter. Depending on the composition of your water, your filter can get a build of of chemicals that are found naturally in water. Change out the filter. If that doesnt work... work your way backwards.. check the copper pipe that runs from the wall to the frig to ensure it did not get bent or cracked while moving the frig out to clean, etc.. Hope this helps. Good luck

I am getting no water to go into my ice maker , eveything else works fine , just no water???


Check fill tube that goes to the icemaker in the back. It may be filled will ice or the water valve may not be sending water to the icemaker. S xS have a dual valve, one goes to the icemaker, the other to the door. This is why one may work but the other doesnt. Replace the water valve on the back of the icemaker.

Whirlpool ultraease warm on left side, dispenses warm water


not dangerous, i would recommend vacuuming coils under and behind refrig, make sure the fan behind the unit( cooling for compressor) is running full speed. the water is probably "warmer" then usual because the waterline runs across the bottom of the refrig, which appears to be overheating as it is. this should rectify your issue
