Re: whirlpool refrigerator model # ED22PE

The ice coating usually means that your door was left slightly open. Did the ice maker work after you cleaned up the ice?

The drip pan is filling up with water and then over flowing. We have to empty it once a day. Then I noticed the ice maker has stopped making ice. Any ideas?

Turn icemaker off see if water problem stops ice tray water valve may be overflowing tray cycle timer may be faulty or faulty water control valve.

Icemaker stopped making ice.

If not filling with water the water control valve is most likely the problem. Pour tap water into tray let freeze and if it cycles and dumps the ice then the water control valve is the problem. If the ice maker does nothing trying this the the ice maker is most likely the problem, I need your model number to confirm which type ice maker you have because some do not have replacement parts. The model number of your Whirlpool Refrigerator, Thanks Sea Breeze

Whirlpool Gold Refrigerator (GS5SHAXNLOO) Ice maker not running, some ice in maker melted together

I have the same model. This has happened to me several times (usually when the door was kept ajar without notice).
Simply open the door, take a common hairdryer and blow at high speed (hottest also) all around the area of where you can feel the ice in the tray, but hasn't dumped yet. It will usually take about 5-8 minutes of consistently moving back and forth around that area. What has happened is the lines bringing water to the trays have frozen over. When you "thaw" them out, the ice made will dump in about 45 minutes. When you hear the ice fall, you will know it's in working order again. I have NOT heard this is a "flawed" icemaker, only that it is hypersensitive to freezing lines when a door is left ajar. In your case, to prevent this from happening again. If you shut the icemaker off again, make SURE you turn off the source of the water feed BEFORE you turn off the ice maker. By doing this, the lines will empty as it makes it's last tray of water. Try that - very confident it will fix your problem!

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.

Whirlpool refrigerator stopped making ice.

If there are ice cubes in the icemaker sitting there waiting to be dumped then the problem is in the icemaker. If the icemaker is dry then you have a water supply problem, even if you have a water in the door working.
1.Check the fill line inside the freezer at the icemaker, if it is clogged with ice then remove this ice and replace the water valve.

2. Check the water supply. Turn the water supply off, disconnect the water line from the Ref, turn the water back on an fill a small glass. If the water supply is good the solenoid on the water valve should be checked. This is done with an OHM meter.

If you got this far and need more info to DIY -
