Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators

1 Answer

2003 Whirlpool 25.4 side by side, Model# ED5SHAXMB00. Icemaker works sporatically. One day it works with no problem, the next it doesn't work at all. Doesn't appear to have any levers to switch, or buttons to flip that I can find.

The Ice Maker control module is at fault and needs to be replaced. You can order a new one from the following website link (2nd part down) http://www.repairclinic.com/Appliance-Parts?s=t-ED5SHAXMB00-%3d%3d

If for some reason the part fails to fix the problem and it would turn out to be faulty wiring which I doubt since these control modules like to fail, it is returnable within 30 days. Let me know how this turns out

Whirlpool ED5SHAXMB00 freezer stopped working, then fridge. cleaned underneath completely. fan working. hearing click coming from relay switch on outside of condenser. now what?


This clicking noise is the relay on the side of the compressor. It has been damaged and not working properly. Simply replacing this should be able to start your compressor! I would be VERY surprised if this was not the problem based on your description. I looked up your model number and this is the part number you need - 8201786. This is a kit and the only way to get this part. The instructions should tell you everything you need to know. If I can be of further assistance let me know! good luck!

Icemaker on side by side not working


Change out your ice maker. If your icemaker has worked for 6 years, you got lucky! They normally have to be changed out every couple of years. We have an unlimited inventory of appliance parts for Whirlpool, so please call us to send your parts out and we'll get them out right away!

Whirlpool IceMagic Plus not working.


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If it dumps the ice but doesn't refill , replace the ice maker . If it doesn't dump , and the cubes stay in the ice maker , replace the ice maker .

The switch on the icemaker for normal , runs the icemaker normaly . In the ice plus , a small fan comes on , blowing the inside air , over the ice maker mold , to help it freeze faster .

I have a whirlpool refrigerator model# ED5SHAXMB00.


Due to your refrig having the ice bin on the door , it could be a little bit more difficult to diagnose . Pour about 1/2 cup of water into the icemaker . If it doesn't dump , then the problem is the icemaker . When you open the freezer door , does the laser lite flash 2 times then pause then 2 times etc.? If the lite does not flash , it means the icemaker is in the harvest mode (dumping) . If stuck in the harvest mode , replace the icemaker . If the icemaker dumps the frozen cubes , then the black fill tube above the fill cup , could be frozen , or the water inlet valve is bad . If you feel ice in the black tube ,(water valve bad due to slow drop leak ) you'll need to pull the fridge from the wall , and see if there is a plastic coupling on the tube going up to the icemaker . If not , you should get one in case of future problems . Cut the tube (or disconnect the fitting ) (if you can blow thru it , black tube is not stopped up with ice ) and turn the icemaker off . Turn the freezer setting down a number or two . Go by ocassionally to see if you can blow thru the line . This water line goes between the top of refrig and the inner liner . Bad design because if it freezes , no way to get to it . Can try hair dryer on top of refrig . I have known it to take several days for this line to thaw .

No ice from icemaker


Read the manual and see if the icemaker has a thermostat that prevents the admission of water into the tray if the freezer temp is too high. Also..make sure the ice level bar is down.

Whirlpool icemaker


Try using an hairdryer or defrosting the unit completely , this often get rid of blockage caused by frozen lines fixing the problem.

The water lines can also be unblocked from dirt using a thin flexible shaft. This after defrosting.

If all that does not fix the problem, then you may need to replace the water valve, the icemaker solenoid, or the whole icemaker assembly.

Icemaker doesn't make ice


If there are ice cubes in the icemaker sitting there waiting to be dumped then the icemaker is bad. If the icemaker is dry then it could be the water valve is bad.
