SOURCE: F & P GW712 - bowl spins, but won't fill.

Read your user manual - but I would suggest that you may not have setup the balance properly. Check the level of the machine and adjust to be as square as possible by adjusting the feet at the bottom. If the water isnt coming in on both hot and cold sounds like a common problem - perhaps the water level sensor is playing up or something else has been knocked during transportation of the machine when you moved house. Check your user manual for troubleshooting. Sounds dumb, but check that 'delay start' isnt selected also. check both hoses filters are not blocked.

SOURCE: Washer filling up with too much water

Hi
This is a fault with the water pressure sensor - it doesen't sense any.
8 times out of 10 the sensor is fine - but the pipe that connects it to an air chamber has a hole or is disconnected.

Turn it off (water and electric) and unplug. Remove the top, and check small hoses that go down the side of the machine. Replace any damaged hoses (take original to spares shop)

Replace and reconnect.

If you cannot see anything wrong - take the hose off anyway that connects to a sensor on the end of it. Take it off the lower end only- check it over fully, and blow down it. You should hear a click from the sensor. A test meter would help to see if it is functioning.

Replace sensor if faulty.

If it still produces the same fault - you may have a control board fault.

Please post back here if you cannot solve it for further test procedures.

Thanks for using Fixya.

I have a Sears Kenmore model 106.5002 refrigerator. The ice machine keeps building up blocks of ice. We have melted it with a blow dryer. It works and dispenses ice.


Suggest turning the ice maker off by elevating the shutoff lever arm. If ice continues to build after a few days the solenoid water valve is leaking and needs to be replaced.

If no ice build up it is likely that the fill tube is dirty and water is freezing in the tube disrupting the normal tray fill process.

There isnt any water getting thru to the icemaker. i changed the watervalve and still no water i cannot locate the water filter even tho i removed the bottom grill, water is still getting to the water...


if you put a new water valve on the fridge then you either have a bad ice maker or the line is frozen where the water fills the ice maker,a bad water valve will make the line freeze,water keeps dripping through the valve and freezes the fill line behind the ice maker cup,you can remove the ice maker and check the fill line,if it's frozen get a hair dryer,shut down the fridge or unplug it and blow the hot air into the fill line until the ice melts,then get a piece of wire and after you reinstall the ice maker pop off the cover to the ice maker and jump it out with the wire,stick it in the t and h for 15 seconds and pull it out,if the ice maker is good it will start turning and when the arms get at like 11 oclock it should fill,also you can jump out the fill valve from the ice maker,stick it in v and L and if water fills the ice maker you know you have a bad ice maker if the fill line isn't frozen.hope this helps.next time you need help send the model number,on your machine look in the fridge section on the right hand wall up near the ceiling to find it,if it's older look down near the bottom hinge on the fridge door and you'll see a tag with the model number.good luck

New (3 days old) Kenmore Elite refrigerator model 795.7103 with ice maker. Water supply line to the ice maker immediately froze up so won't fill tray to make ice. Serviceman came out and melted ice...


First of all, your freezer should be much lower than 38 degrees. For the ice maker to even work proplerly it has to be below 10 F. Some models have a heater that goes around the fill tube to keep that from happening, but in my opinion, if its only three days old, take it back because it's much too soon for that problem to be occuring.

Ice make has stopped making ice


Good day, lots of reasons an ice maker will stop making ice. Just take a step by step procedure and it will solve the problem.
The freezer must be at normal temperature. At least 12 degrees or colder.
First step is to take a small paper cup of water and fill the cavity until it is near full. With the ice maker turned on, close freezer door and wait 3 hours to see if it harvests. If not, the ice maker is bad, and must be replaced. If the cubes harvest then.......
Three possibilities.
1. The water supply from the house is not delivering water to the water valve. Shut off the house at the meter, disconnect the line going to the water valve, and with the line pointed into a bucket, have someone turn the valve back on for a 15 second count. The water should come out smartly. If not, the line and it's fittings will have to be replaced.
2. The fill tube from the back of the machine that feeds water into the back of the ice maker is frozen up. You will have to remove the ice maker to visually inspect that tube. If blocked, it needs to be defrosted, but use caution. Too much heat too fast will start to melt plastic and vinyl parts you don't want melted.
If this is the case, then once cleaned out, you will have to change the water valve located in the back bottom rear of the machine because it is leaking during the off cycle.
3. If everything checks O.K. up to this point, you will have to purchase and install a new water valve, and install it.
P.S. Under very rare occasions the electric circuity in the ice maker will fail to send a signal to the water valve. Although rare, it can happen, in which case the best option is to replace the ice maker and water valve.

ICE MAKER WILL NOT MAKE ICE


Good day,
The first thing to check is the freezer temperature. If it is allowed to go above 15 degrees the ice maker will lock out by design.
If the freezer is O.K. then follow these steps to isolate the problem.
First step is to take a small paper cup of water and fill the cavity until it is near full. With the ice maker turned on, close freezer door and wait 3 hours to see if it harvests. If not, the ice maker is bad, and must be replaced. If the cubes harvest then.......

Icemaker makes ice, then partially melts, constantly jamming disp


Good day.
Tough one if it works from time to time. Shut the water to the machine completely off and clean out the ice maker well.
Pour water into the well until near full. Wait 3 hours to see if it harvests normally. If it's a normal harvest, repeat the test 2 to 3 more times. If it acts normally on harvest, replace the water valve on the bottom back of he machine.
If it acts abnormally, then you will need to replace the ice maker, and the water valve should be replaced at the same time.

Note: The freezer temperature must be normal for this testing to work properly, and the water supply from the house must be strong. Extremely weak water to the machine from the house will unbalance the fill cycle because it is a straight time fill. 7 seconds, unlike a washing machine that fills to a specific level.

The ice in the ice tray becomes a solid block and has to be manually broken apart to get the dispenser working again. Tried changing the temperature on the front panel to no effect.


Good day,
Water leaking from the water fill valve when it should be off can overfill the ice maker cavity causing that, or the fill tube from the back of the machine going into the back of the ice maker has become dislodged.

Machine could be going into it's defrost cycle for too long, warming up the area around the tray causing the cubes to partially melt.
