Thanks for using FixYa. Check the water inlet valve. It might be filled with ice. In this case thaw the water tube with a hair dryer to remove the blockage. Also check the water inlet valve's screen is not blocked. Clean the debris from it if there are some. If still the issue persists, then the water inlet valve might have gone bad which can be confirmed by testing it. This issue might be due to a defective defrost thermostat. Test your defrost thermostat to determine whether it has gone bad and replace it, if required.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Hello I have a gd5rhaxnq00 whirlppol side by side ref. and it stopped making ice. I lifted out the ice box to empty the ice into a bowl and since then it doesnt make ice or fill with water in the ice...

I found the Manual HERE. From what I have seen, it would seem that the Ice Storage Bin is not in the freezer correctly. Remove the unit, and check the area around it, perhaps there is something that is not allowing the unit to set properly. Since there is a sensor, probably an armature or something similar there to sense when the bin is out of the freezer, that is probably the source of your trouble, both with the none production of ice and the blinking lights. Page 8 of the manual also describes what happens when the Filter needs to be replaced. If there is an indicator for that, which could be the light you mention, it may be that the filter is in need of replacement. You can use the machine without a filter as well. Refer to the manual if my prior diagnosis is incorrect.
Hope this gives you the solution you require. Please rate and comment, Thank You Joe

Ice maker is not making ice

Even though the water dispenser is OK you need to make sure the tray(s) in the ice maker are filling. The filter valve, located to the rear of the ice maker can freeze over and stop water flow. Check the supply line for the ice maker, it may be separate from the water dispenser.

Ice maker stopped working

The water line may be clogged with debris. there is sometimes a filter in the water line to the fridge, or also a screen filter may be located at the point where the water line connects to the fridge. If they are clogged, your ice maker will not make ice and may even burn out.
Check that the water in the line is flowing freely. Also it might be a good idea to defrost the freezer in case you have a ice buildup in the freezer compartment. To do that, empty the freezer and blow air into the freezer for 30 minutes while the power if off. Note, keep the other side closed to protect the milk and other perishables.
