SOURCE: Whirlpool side-by-side refrigerator ice dispenser

First pull out the ice bucket and close the door.  Set for cubed ice.  Press the button for ice to come out and listen for a loud clunk noise.  That is the sound of the solenoid.  You can open the door, hold the light switch and press the button and watch for the solenoid moving up and down.  Solenoid is at the back of the freezer in a little square opening where the rod on the ice bucket goes into.  If that solenoid is moving ok then put the bucket back in while the solenoid is in the down position and cubes should work.  If solenoid is not working then it will need to be replaced.  Let me know what you find.

SOURCE: how to repair the ice dispenser door on a whirlpool refrigerator

If you will look on the bottom of the dispenser cover you will see 2 notches on the left and right side. carefully pry the cover off using a flat tip screw driver. then you will see a white switch plate that is either held on with latches or 2 srews depending on model. once this is removed you will gain access to the dispenser door. 
once you gain access I think you will find the hinges for the dispenser door are broken off. if so you will need a dispenser door repair kit form whirlpool part # 8201756 this kit includes new door and hinge repair kit. this is something you can do yourself if you are pateint and pay lose attention to detail. otherwise I would recomend a god servie company. thanks for using FixYa Peyton

SOURCE: water dispenser on front of refrigerator door does not dispense water. Ice Cube maker continues to make ice cubes. Defrosting doesn't fix problem.

Water dispensing solenoid is bad. You need to replace the solenoid valve. This typically is independent of the ice maker.

SOURCE: whirlpool refrigerator ice dispenser no longer workds

Ok, I show parts that are available for that model, sounds like the control board is defective for your dispenser, or possibly the Ice maker control board. It also could be a break in the wiring or the control itself. Below is a break down for those parts, wiring and the control behind the push to dispense ice or water. Hope it is not that control because some places don't provide that part. Now if it's a connection problem that we can find, I will do mu best to help you solve this.Could you insure the model number is correct as this is very important? appliancepartsse@yahoo.com

SOURCE: Replacing the Ice dispenser motor on Kenmore elite refrigerator?

I had the same problem with our Whirlpool Gold. Which by the way was just out of warranty. The guy who repaired the problem told us that since there were so many replacement dispenser motors at different supply locations that there must be a problem. I think that the root cause is the arm in the ice holder is hard to move, and it burns the dispenser ( #2252130) motor out. Whirlpool should get to the bottom of this and offer free or reduced repairs. Motor # 2252130

Why is my 2001 Whirlpool Imperial Series side by side refrigerator frosting up around the ice maker?


Ice makers can do this for several reasons. One is the incoming temp of the water is causing condensation to form and it freezes. Another reason is air leaks from the ice maker door.

What is infared reciever inside freezer of my whirlpool side by side refridgerator


This is an optical infrared beam to detect the level of ice in the door for your dispenser. If the switch on the right side is in the off position the computer thinks you ice is full and will not allow ice production to continue. Basically, leave it on for continuous ice production. I hope this helps..

My ice maker stopped making ice.We have the Whirlpool Imperial Series with the water and ice in the door. The water dispenser is working fine.


The heater has a timer, and a temperature sensor. It senses when the water has turned to ice the temperature has reached certain degree. If the sensor or the timer malfunction then you would end up with the heater coming on too soon and the ice would not have time to freeze.

I have a Whirlpool Imerial Series Side by Side that will not disp


If you can't hear the solenoid on the water inlet valve(it's on the back where the water supply hooks up) when you try the water then the water switch on the dispenser is at fault.

If you do hear it Your water line could be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line at the bottom before it goes into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if it comes out there. If it does, leave the door open till it thaws.

If it doesn't come out there disconnect it at the water inlet valve and see if it comes out there. The valve could be bad.
