    My GE ice dispenser does not dispense. When I activate the dispenser the unit makes a loud slamming/ noise (like contacts jamming) and humms but the auger does not turn to dispense the ice..

    My Whirlpool Ice dispenser does not work. We purchased the refrigerator new, 6 months ago. We can't even remove the bucket from inside to check it out. Something has "locked up" within the unit.

RECHECK THE CONNECTIONS AT THE UPPER DOOR HINGE WHERE THE ELECTRICAL WAS DISCONNECTED. MAKE SURE ALL THE PINS ARE STAYING IN THE PLUG WHEN YOU CONNECT THEM TOGETHER.
ALSO, BE SURE THE ICE BIN IS PROPERLY INSTALLED.

Hello David ,

Their are a few possible reason the ice is not being dispensed,

1) the door switch is bad...the door must be closed for the ice to dispense and perhaps the switch thinks the door is open

2) the switch that is activated when pushing the lever on the dispenser is bad

3) the dispenser motor is bad

4) the control board is bad

Ice will not dispense. Ice maker working and water will dispense.


The micro switch that activates the auger is likely failed.
It is at the top of the fountain lever for ice.

My Whirlpool Gold side-by-side refrigerator GS6NVEXSL00 wont give me the ice out the door. It makes ice, but when I press the button on the door nothing happens. Seems like the button went out. HELP!


Does the water dispenser work? Is there a light at the dispenser panel, does it light? Do you hear any noises or motors running when you actuate ice dispenser? You could have a power issue for the dispenser. Some newer whirlpool models have an issue with the wiring leading into the door at bottom being so securley fastened to frame, the lack of movement forces the wires to bend, and in time break, with door usage. If water dispenser works, and you hear no sounds when the ice lever is actuated, then you have a problem with the dispenser panel circuit board. if water works and you hear some sounds when ice lever is actuated, such as a loud popping noise, then you have a bad ice dispenser auger motor, not churning the ice out of the bucket.

The outside door water does not work


Can I assume the ice and water are activated by two different switches? The ice switch activates the motor that dispenses ice. The water switch activates a solenoid that opens to dispense water. If you can, find the solenoid and make sure it's not stuck closed (tapping it with a screwdriver handles usually help persuade it a bit). I would tap the solenoid while pushing the water button. Listen for the solenoid to activate. If you can't activate the solenoid, find the switch and depress it with a small screwdriver. Usually, these switches are just simple little microswitches that need a little cleaning and coaxing

Ice maker will not dispense the ice


When you press the lever to dispense the ice, there are multiple switches being activated. Chances are, the one that moves the motor to turn out the ice is bad. Or that motor itself is bad.

Dispenser on freezer door


Check the electrical connector at the bottom of the freezer door for corrosion and if it is not that then the main PCB is failing , when it fails the appliance will stop working altogether although the lights will still work inside.
