Whirpool ice machine not getting water

I have a Whirlpool french door refrigerator that is only two year old. The ice machine stopped receiving water one day. I can hear the ice machine lever running all the time so I know the actual unit is working, but I no longer hear the water filling the trays. I've tried to take the ice machine apart but it must require special tools because I cannot access anything. The water dispenser on the front of the door does work just fine, however. I unplugged the refrigerator for 3 days to make sure it was not a frozen water line. Upon turning it back it, it still did not work. What would cause the ice machine to stop receiving water?

Ice maker not working on a whirlpool french door fridge


Is the cold water dispenser working? If not, does the filter need to be changed? Do you actually have water supply to the fridge?
Is the Ice bin empty? Is this your fridge, or are you renting and this was in place? If yours, do you have an Owner's manual with the troubleshooting tips? No manual, try manualslib.com Make model possibly year and serial number. If not yours, there should be a switch that turns the Icemaker on or off. A green light on the front of the drive mechanism near this switch should mean it does have power. No light, no power. There should be a mechanical switch that stops the Ice maker. If the bin is empty, the ice detection arm should be down If it is not down, It is stuck in the "bin is full" position. If these are not the problem, It may be the electrical valve for the Icemaker water supply is not operating, or has been disconnected, or is bad. I have found that one of the online "appliance parts store or sites" have been quite helpful in diagnosing problems and recommending parts and how to fix.

Why Icing on bottom freezer


Your drain hose in the bottom back of the freezer is clogged and Iced up and all the defrost water is staying in the freezer and building up. You need to take the freezer back panel off, remove all the ice, defrost the drain, clean, flush with hot water and test the drain line to reach the drain pan under the fridge.

Whirlpool Refrigerator water leak through Ice dispenser


You need to remove the ice maker and open the front carefully. It has small micro switches inside it and it sounds like one that opens the water control valve is stuck in the on position. Be careful not to loose the arm spring and how that goes back together as you take it apart. Sea Breeze

Ice maker stopped dropping ice or even making ice.


Try using a hair dryer to thaw out the rubber tubing leading to the ice tray. On mine, I opened up the front door to the icemaker and found the rubber tubing leading in. I squeazed it, it felt frozen, so I applied heat. Water began dripping out, the area thawed, and I had ice again within a short period of time.

Whirlpool Ice Magic Plus not make ice at all.


The most likely cause is the water solenoid behind the fridge. Take an ohm meter and test across the two terminals and it should NOT ohm out(beep). If it does not ohm out I would replace the P.C. Board kit, emitter & receiver icemaker control.
