Re: Ice Maker works but

The white stuff is hard water minerals that are in your water. they get concentrated when water freezes. try a good quality water filter.

Replacement ice maker dispenses ice that has cloudy residue as ice melts

This is a physics issue due to the minerals that are present in your water. When the water is let into the ice maker, the minerals are dissolved in the solution, when the water freezes the molecules are brought closer together and the minerals are squeezed out. When the ice melts the minerals drop down to the bottom of the glass because they are cold and out of solution. The process is called precipitation of solids. The common mineral are lime, calcium, fluoride and many other organic substances. It wont hurt you it just looks bad.

Ice Maker Repair

An ice making system is a very simple system with only 2 parts. The ice maker and the inlet valve. The easy way for a DIY'er to figure out which part is bad is the following.
Place a shot glass on the ice maker before you go to bed. In the morning check the shot glass. If it is in the ice tub this means the inlet valve is bad and needs to be replaced. This can be located by pulling the refrigerator out and removing the lower panel on the back.
If the shot glass is still on top of the ice maker where you left it this means the ice maker is bad and should be replaced.
There is also a common problem with the fill tube getting blocked with ice. This is the tube that runs from the back of the freezer to the ice maker. Check to see if there is any ice in this tube. if you see ice it's likely the water has been blocked from filling the tray. Get a hairdryer and melt the ice and then leave the ice maker for 8 hours to see if it now starts to make ice.

My whirlpool GS6NBEXR refrigerator ice cube maker leaves slimey, flaky residue at the bottom of my glass. What can I do?

Diana, if I understand you ok, the ice you put in the glass leaves slimy residue. So that slimy stuff has to be in the ice cube. Well remove the the ice maker unit and thoroughly clean this ice holder and throw away the ice cubes in the kitchen sink and see if leaves slimy stuff. As for slimy stuff, while the unit is out, check any leaks etc. BTW any smell?

Ice maker will not make ice. no ice is being made. no water appears to be in ice cube making area. can hear a ticking noise from icemaker area

Carefully pour water from small glass into ice maker, until the cavity is near filled. Wait a few hours. If it dumps ice, you can usually rule out the ice maker.
If ice maker dumps, then it will be either a bad water valve, Ice building up in fill pipe going into the icemaker, or blocked water line that runs from your water source to the machine.
Caution. If the fill tube going into the ice maker is filled with ice do NOT
use heat such as a hair dryer to melt it. It will melt things you do not want to melt. If it is this problem, you must also replace the water valve because it is leaking slowly causing your problem.
Lastly, in rare cases, the microswitch in the ice maker fails and does not allow water to enter the icemaker.

Sediment at the bottom of my glass of ice water

The sediment is condensed minerals. Applying a filter should fix that problem.

Ice maker

Check supply tube to see if frozen or blocked using Q-tip or feel to see if frozen. if Frozen, hold up clear glass with heated water placing tube in hot water. Hold till ice in tube melts. Clear glass will allow you see ice slip out.

Ice maker on Admiral HMG 62165 side by side

check the lever in the ice bin. if it is stuck in the up position it thinks the ice bin is full and will not make ice. Just wiggle it to the down position.

Ice dispenser in door clogged up or frozen

I see this a lot with people who mainly used crushed ice.  It will leave small pieces of ice behind and add up to a clogged situation.  If you mainly used crushed ice you will need to run full cubes thru every so often to keep the chute clear.  Another cause of this would be the flapper door on the dispenser doesn't close completely and warm air gets in and melts the ice in the bin so it clumps together and won't dispense.  In this case you may need to replace the solenoid that shuts the door and/or the door.  Let me know what you find.
