Re: water dispenser

Disconnect the water line at the bottom front of the frig. Press the lever to dispense water. If you get water out of the line, then the water line to the water dispenser is frozen inside the door. Leave the freezer door open for a few minutes to soften the ice. Use a length of plastic line from a string trimmer to push into the water dispenser and force the ice out the bottom of the water tube.

Re: water dispenser

Hello, If you can see the water line inside the freezer case you might try using a hair blow dryer to try to thaw it out to get water flowing again? Good Luck! Dr. Know

Model #WSF26C2EXY02. Why is ice maker not making ice?

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.

Where do I find the ice maker inlet water valve or solenoid? The valve on the back of my fridge has only one hose going to both the water dispenser and ice maker and the water dispenser works fine.

Since there is water that flows to the water dispenser, the water valve is working. Now, there's a spout that water flows from to the icemaker tray. Look for it. It's located on the back wall inside the freezer and maybe behind the icemaker tray. Check and see if it's frozen. If so, defrost your freezer by turning the temperature gauge to off position. Wait a while until it's defrosted, then turn it back on.
Next, make sure that the metal wire is in down position.

If that doesn't work, your icemaker maybe defective and needs replacement.

No ice being made. The water is not eing supplied to the ice tray. The water dispenser in the door is working fine.

Well since water is making it to your door the line itself is functioning. You might want to check and see if the fill tube to the ice maker is frozen. Also try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear. If it does then the ice maker is at fault.

Water dispenser stopped dispensing water but ice maker is still working fine

I had the same problem. Ice maker works fine. Removed the kick plate at the bottom of the fridge to expose the water line. I disconnected it and then pressed the dispense button. Water pumped out of the line so i know water was getting all the way to the freezer door. I went overkill but it worked. I removed the freezer door and placed it outside. (disconnected the power to the door by disconnecting the plug at the top. and then removed two screws/bolts at the top and the door lifts up and off) I set the door on a patio table with the bottom facing up. I picked up some 16 gauge wire ($6 at Home Depot) and ran it up the water tube from the bottom of the door. The bottom is more of a straight shot up the water line. I also took a turkey syringe used to inject juice into a turkey and i shot very hot water up the line with the door upside down. This allowed water to run up the line and unfreeze it if it was frozen. I let it sit outside for 30 minutes and put the door back on and now it works like a champ. The line was either frozen or it was obstructed. The water line is surprisingly small. Took less than an hour and I now have water again. Not tough at all...

Ice maker no longer works. It has been working for years and all of the sudden the ice tray does not fill up with water, however the water dispenser dispenses water just fine....

The unit uses a dual water and possibly the side which supplies the ice maker has become defective. Also check to see if the fill tube has frozen.

Water dispenser fine but ice maker not working

Hi. A good way to check the ice maker water solenoid valve is to swith the wire lead from the dispenser water solenoid valve to the ice maker water solenoid valve. Now push the water dispenser lever and water should come out your ice maker fill tube. If not, either the fill tube is frozen or the ice maker water solenoid valve is bad. Take the 1/4 inch tube that runs up the back of your freezer off at the ice maker water solenoid valve and blow thru it. If you can't, the tube is frozen. If you can, the valve is bad. Good luck, Mack
