Question about Whirlpool GS5SHAXN Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Water drips slowly out of dispenser, ice distribution is fine.

We have a whirlpool gold side by side model gs5shaxn 100. The ice dispenses fine but the water is a very slow to come out. The lines aren't pinched and the water coming out is ice cold. Could it be partially frozen? How can I troubleshoot this? No manual was left by the previous owners....
The freezer and fridge temps are on the recommeneded "4" setting.

Please help

Hi, yes the water line could be starting to ice up; maybe defrosting the fridge will cure the problem. Mine has a coiled tube behind the lower drawer in the fridge, this is where the water line is chilled. Hope this helps if you've not sorted the problem already. Kind regards jb

Whirlpool side by side GS5SHAXN. Ice maker slowly died.


Hi agcruiser;
Have your change your water filter lately?
If not try that, as it may be starting to block up a little.
Another problem could be the water inlet valve(Ice Side) situated at bottom of fridge, that could be starting to wear (Can interchange with water side inlet valve). Yes there are 2- 1 for ice and 1 for water
The Whirlpools Ice Michine set up is very easy, and runs by a mechanical system, they can be tested (Use a qualified tech).
Cheers hope this helps

Very slow drip from water dispenser. How do I fix


Good day,
A slow continues drip, but still dispenses O.K. is caused by the dual water valve on the bottom rear of the machine not closing completely.
Only fix is replacing the water valve assembly.

Ice and water dispenser


Has someone pressed the lock button on the front of the fridge just above the dispenser, next to the crushed & not crushed ice button, if so there is also an unlock button next to it.

No ice or water from dispensers


Womers, make sure there is not a lock-out on the dispensor panel. If there is, hold it in for 5 seconds and see if the dispensors come alive. Because both water and ice are not working, I would think you have a dispenser board issue. Catriver..post back.
