Have you checked the dispenser to see if it is clogged. It sounds like the motor is drawing to much power to rotate the dispenser wheel.

When the ice-tray is full it pushes 'UP' a lever that shuts the water supply off. When you move the lever down all goes back to normal.

My Whirlpool Gold side-by-side refrigerator GS6NVEXSL00 wont give me the ice out the door. It makes ice, but when I press the button on the door nothing happens. Seems like the button went out. HELP!


Does the water dispenser work? Is there a light at the dispenser panel, does it light? Do you hear any noises or motors running when you actuate ice dispenser? You could have a power issue for the dispenser. Some newer whirlpool models have an issue with the wiring leading into the door at bottom being so securley fastened to frame, the lack of movement forces the wires to bend, and in time break, with door usage. If water dispenser works, and you hear no sounds when the ice lever is actuated, then you have a problem with the dispenser panel circuit board. if water works and you hear some sounds when ice lever is actuated, such as a loud popping noise, then you have a bad ice dispenser auger motor, not churning the ice out of the bucket.

556124 refrigerator. Ice/water disp. shorted out.


Your problem may be with the dispenser electronic control board. This is an issue that should be handled by an appliance service company.

Ice Dispenser motor/Dispenser light


I assume that the problem is that the ice dispenser is not working. If you have put 120v onto the auger motor and it won't go, then obviously the motor is faulty. Reconnect the motor to the wiring harness and put your tester on the white & blue wires. Push the door switch so the fridge thinks that the door is closed and push the ice dispensing lever. If you get 120V to the motor and it won't go, replace the auger motor.

Door dispenser stopped dispensing, starting making a constant clicking and now the entire fride isn't working


We had the same problem. Our frigerator is 1.5 year old. Everytime we try to dispence water or ice the dispencer clicks and the whole thing turns of. We had a GE repairman come by: the electronic board needs to be replaced: total cost $350. (cost of the board only: $150. We are considering disconnecting the dispencer by unplugging the board (according to the repain man the ice maker wil still work)or buy a new refrigurator (for sure NO GE!!!!!!)
