Question about Whirlpool GS6NBEXR Side by Side Refrigerator
THERE IS NO WATER GOING IN THE TRAY OF THE ICE MAKER, I WANT TO KNOW IF THE ICE MAKER CONTROLS THE WATER VALVE, I AM TRYING TO FIND OUT IF I NEED TO REPLACE THE ICE MAKER AND WATER VALVE OR JUST ONE OF THEM.
Yes, the ice maker controls the water valve. First check that there is water in the ice maker trays. If there is your valve is not the problem. If not, loosen the fitting on the water line that leads to the water solenoid valve. If you do not find water, check your manual valve that taps into the main water line. If you do have water, it may be that the water inlet above and behind your ice maker is frozen. You can thaw it out with a hair dryer and see if that is the problem. If this model dispenses water through the door, you can find the water solenoid valve behind the unit near the floor and reverse the two plugs on the solenoids. Place a paper towel in the water inlet tube that channels the water into your ice maker. Close the coor and press the water dispenser for 3 seconds. Open the door and see if the paper towel is wet. If it is, the water solenoid is fine. You can also remove the front of the ice maker and put an insulated jumper wire between the T and H test points to see if the unit ice maker will go through its cycle.

Check the tube behind the refrigerator and see if it is clogged. I spent $80 on a sears house call for them to pull the tube off and run it under hot water and it has been fine ever since. This also works if there is water coming from under the refrigerator.
