Go to the back of the ref, trace the incoming water line, it should go to a two pc solenoid valve. if you press water at the front, one of the solenoid should click. the one that didn't click is the one for the ice maker. see if you can detach the water line that comes out of that solenoid. that line goes to the ice maker. you can flush it with water to clean it. be aware that a lot of water would be overflowing inside the ice maker . i hope i was able to solve your problem..

Automatic ice maker not receiving water to make ice. Checked and clean line from water supply valve to refrigerator. Checked ice maker and all seems well/normal.


first thing to check is the waterline going into the fridge, unhook the waterline and see if water is coming out. make sure you locate the shutoff before you take it apart!! if you have water going to the fridge then you could have a frozen line issue or an ice maker issue. more than likely the saddle valve got clogged up with something. close the saddle vale all the way then open it back up and test it then.

Ice maker stopped producing ice. Turned off unit overnight to melt any possib. frozen secions in the line but still no ice.


Hello
Have you checked the waterline or water filter for clogs?

Also there is a solinoid in the back of refrig for water fill for ice,it may be stuck or not working.

Water accumalating in the bottom of the fridge.


A common problem. All modern refrigerators have an automatic deicer. The heater kicks in, then MELTS the ice in build up in the freezer for a short period before freezing again. This water drains either in the fridge or out the back to the catch tray. Simply pull out the bottom drawers and clean the clogged drain hold where the water can drain and evaporate in the catch tray as it is designed to.

I have a whirlpool refrigerator where water pools under the veggie crispers. It looks like it is coming from the freezer. The unit does not have an ice maker and I suspect a drain line is clogged. Any...


Freezer on top? If so remove rear panel from freezer inside and check drain under evaporator. If clogged, use hot water and turkey baster to squirt water and thaw out drain. DO NOT use sharp instrument to pry ice out. You can use a blow dryer to help thaw as well. Turkey baster helps to jet hot water in drian.

Whirlpool refrigerator leaking from top of unit


Listened to other posts and figured drain plug was clogged. It was with ice. Removed bottom pan and back panel of freezer, removed ice on bottom, put hot water in drain to thaw ice until it flowed into pan underneath fridge. Thanks for the ideas.

Kenmore side by side refrigerator freezer not making ice


sorry if i sounded rude i just couldn't read the entire post it just trailed off...
if it not the water valve then it is either the ice-maker is bad or the waterline going to the ice-maker is frozen or clogged.
sometimes the water valve will slowly leak a small amount of water to the ice-maker and this will freeze in the large tube going to the ice-maker from the back of the refrigerator. this will block any more water from coming thru.
hope this helps

Ice maker wont make ice


It is quite possible that the water line which feeds the ice maker is frozen. Whirlpool manufactures a "REPLACEMENT" water line that solves this problem. Fortunatly our problem occured while the refrigerator was still under warranty. I would suggest that anyone owning a Whirlpool product purchase the longest extended warranty available! They USED to manufacture a quality product. But I guess they just don't care about the consumer any longer. It is all about money!!
