Whirlpool Ice Makers are about the hardest working part on your refrigerator and their average life is about five years. You can fill the tray with tap water if the ice slots are already empty and let the water freeze. If after the water freezes and the ice drops to ice bin then the water control valve.

Click Here=> 4389177 Water Inlet Valve will need replaced. You mentioned the water is filling the tray OK then my focus would be on the ice maker.

Model #WSF26C2EXY02. Why is ice maker not making ice?


When the ice-tray is full it pushes 'UP' a lever that shuts the water supply off. When you move the lever down all goes back to normal.

The icemaker on whirlpool elite is not filling with water


There is a solenoid valve that operates when the ice maker cam rotates and operates a micro switch or a smart chip to open this valve allowing water to flow into the ice maker. This cam or smart switch times the water flow to allow just enough water to fill the tray and then allows the solenoid to close. (a solenoid is just an electro-magnetic plunger) Your solenoid may be bad or the water line may have an ice plug in the part of the hose that goes into the ice maker.(This can happen if your freezer is turned up too high and your water line freezes) Also the smart chip (controller) may be bad. You can use the old hair dryer trick to try and unfreeze the line, but if your controller has gone south, then the circuit board has to be replaced. You can go to http://www.whirlpool.com/manuals/ and input your model number and get a manual for the machine. If you are a competent DIY person, you may be able to repair it your self.

Frigidaire gallery side by side won't send water to ice maker tray, but will to water dispenser


Hello Jim czyryca - From what you are describing if the ice maker is not making ice but is dispensing water, sounds like the refrigerator has a frozen water line, faulty ice maker valve or bad component that sends power to the ice maker valve when needed. The ice maker cycles internally to call for water so I strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately to assist with the repairs.

The ice maker


see this causes and fix it. God bless you

Makes to much ice or won't shut off.

Check shutoff arm. This may be hung up on ice or food item.

Makes no ice.

Check shutoff arm. Check to make sure it is getting water, check water solenoid. Check water supply line it may be frozen or plugged up. Check freezer temperature to low of a temperature could cause the line to freeze up. Check for power at motor. You will need to remove the ice maker. Find the leads that go to the auger and connect a voltmeter. Press the dispenser lever you should have power if not replace the control board or micro switch. Check control switch or microswitch. Put icemaker in test mode. Only some are equipped.

Ice cubes to large or small.

Adjust size by removing cover and turn adjustment screw + or -. Check water solenoid. Check water supply line. Make sure it is level.

Ice tastes bad

Clean ice tray. Check supply line. Check water solenoid. Change filter. Run at least a 3 gallons of water thru the line after replacing filter this will flush all old water.

Ice is discolored.

Check water solenoid. Check supply line. Change filter. Clean ice tray. Run at least a 3 gallons of water thru the line after replacing filter this will flush all old water.

Most ice maker problems require either replacing the ice maker unit or the ice dispenser control board or micro switches.

Ice maker won't make ice


This problem is very common.The ice maker water passing line gets clogged or blocked by ice cube or gets frosted by ice or the water valve,which lets water to ice maker,tray, that valve gets faulty.

The ice maker not working.-------------

Its the problem of water inlet valve. It's a dual valve. This valve has two tubes in it. One for water dispenser and one for ice maker chamber. The one side of valve is working, but other side of the valve is not working. The valve is got stuck in one position

Hooked up water line and ice maker, water working notice maker. Any ideas?


Make sure wire loop extending out from the ice maker over the ice bin is pushed down. Up turns the ice maker off.

Without more info, I can't diagnose further.
Stick finger in ice tray where ice freezes. Is there water in there. No, check solenoid valve and water line to ice maker (kinks). Is there ice cubes in ice tray? Is ice maker pushed fully in? All wires to ice maker on back and underneath connected?

If this information was useful, please select YES to the first two rating questions. Good Luck and thank you!

Samsung Ice Maker on Mdl RB215LASH


It is quite possible the water line near the ice-maker is frozen. I would try a warm hair drier to thaw it out.
