Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators
How do i fix my whirlpool icemaker it seems that it gets stuck half way into icemaking and does not produce ice.the model is ed5hhaxv002 it is very frustrating i havce tried a blow dryer to heat the rubber tube feeding the icemaker.Please help
Your rubber tube is most likely not freezing up and therefore does not need to be heated but only you would know for certain. My experience with ice makes spans several different models but I've found the most common problem for me with no ice being produced is when the bar that shuts of the icemaker gets stuck in the up position because - ice cubes have frozen into a big clump, Ice cubes have jammed the bar by sticking between the ice tray and the bar, or the gear inside that rotates the ice cube tray is stripped in that area because of previous jams and needs to be replaced.

Check to see that you do have water to the water valve on the fridge. You can disconnect right where the water line goes into the valve on the fridge. Next, if you can, check power at the valve while activating the water dispenser. If you have power at the valve when activating then the water valve is bad. Let me know what you find.

Turn ice maker off for 24 hours to thaw out any additional frozen lines.
Make sure that you do have water from source to unit. Water valve grit screen may be clogged with debrie or water valve is bad.

SOURCE: icemaker does not work
You will need to replace your inlet valve. The problem is the water is slowly leaking into your icemaker fill line and freezing up. You will have a double inlet valve and the line going to your dispencer may be working fine but the one going to the icemaker is not sealing off. Be sure to defrost all the ice out after replacing the inlet valve. And please allow several cycles of your icemaker before it makes its first batch. It can take 2-3 cycles to fill lines and filters depending on your model. Lots of luck to you and please let me know if this helped you. Mca0824@aol.com
