If there is a reset button on your ice maker try pushing it. Many ice makers have two holes for reset. A general rule of thumb is if the ice maker fingers are stopped in a slightly vertical position then your ice maker unit is working. If the fingers are stopped anywhere else then it needs some sort of attention or replaced. Make sure there is water, or ice in the ice maker tray, if not then the problem is with water supply.

SOURCE: ICE MAKER QUIT MAKING ICE ON MY WHIRLPOOL FRIDGE

I had a Whirlpool Model GD5SHAXNS in which the icemaker quit working about the same time (3 years old). I had water out the dispenser, I found that it was the icemaker itself failed not calling for water to fill it. I replaced it with a icemaker on-line for about $100 and problem fixed. I have been told his is a common problem with the icemaker in this model ref.

SOURCE: water dispenser on front of refrigerator door does not dispense water. Ice Cube maker continues to make ice cubes. Defrosting doesn't fix problem.

Water dispensing solenoid is bad. You need to replace the solenoid valve. This typically is independent of the ice maker.

SOURCE: Front ice/water dispenser stopped working.

I had the same problem. Turned out to be a microswitch under the lever used to activate it. The microswitch fell from the original position so it wasn't turning on anything. I tried gluing into position but the fumes from the crazy glue messed up the switch and I had to replace the whole rig.
The part is under the control display. You can pry it open from the left side.

Whirlpool refrigerator WSF26C2EXF01 water dispenser not working


This sounds like the water inlet valve has gone bad.. First before u replace it check to see that you have water coming to back of fridge as it could be restricted causing no water to reach the fridge.

I HAVE A WHIRLPOOL SIDE X SIDE MODLE # ED5RHEXNL 03 MAKES ICE BUT NO WATER FLOW.


There is a double or triple water valve in your fridge. check continuity on the water dispenser valve coil in the back of the fridge (small terminals, thicker tubing, green coil). Replace valve (part number 4389177) if no continuity. If ok, check if there's line voltage (110-120V) to that coil when the dispenser actuator is pressed. If there is power and there is continuity on that coil - water line is frozen inside the freezer door. Turn off and defrost the refrigerator for full 24 hours. put towels under the freezer door to catch melting ice formed from condensation inside the door. repeat every year or as necessary.

If no power to the water valve coil - check the switch actuated by the water lever in the dispenser assembly. Replace if faulty. Regular microswitch is ok, but if you want the OEM part number, there it is: 2162361

Good luck!

My whirlpool suddenly stopped dispensing water.


most fridges stop dispensing water when you open the door. Find the door switch and make sure fridge interior light goes on/off when you manually press door switch. This would show you that the door switch was faulty.

If the water connection to the appliance is one of those watts flood-safe water lines, it may have stuck shut. I've seen this happen when the house water pressure is too high.

Does it still make ice?

If so, then the water connection is good, and either the switch in the water dispenser has failed or the water shutoff valve for the water dispenser has gone bad.

Some models have a problem with the water line getting frozen, such that simply leaving the light on in the water dispenser compartment overnight and/or manually defrosting the unit can get it working again.
