Re: whirlpool ed2fhexnq00 icemaker will not dispense...
Can you see the ice maker's white cover?? try to pry that off , usually a little space for a ***** driver to be inserted into where the body of ice maker and the cover meet in lower right corner. after removing check the gear in center of ice machine. there should be 2 little tabs that hold that gear on." picture trying to snap that gear on , the tabs would hold it in place" do those tabs appear tobe broken?? at least one anyway(although small ther should be a distinct space between the tabs where they sprung back into place) if theyre broken, theres your problem you need to replace the ice maker assy,(entire unit)

If it is like my Kenmore, there are two solenoids at the back bottom right (facing the back) of refrigerator where the water supply connects to the refrigerator, and it sounds as if both solenoids (one for water dispenser and the other for ice maker) are energized at the same time as though the hot wires to the solenoids are shorted together. Possibly, if the replacement icemaker is not an exact replacement, a wiring difference might cause this short. ONLY IF YOU ARE QUALIFIED TO DO ELECTRICAL WORK will I suggest the following. YOU CAN BE KILLED IF YOU DON'T
UNPLUG THE REFRIGERATOR!!!! Disconnect one wire at a time by pulling and wiggling from side to side if the connectors are fastons , and with an ohm meter check for a short between the two hot wires of the solenoids. Remember where each wire goes. To determine which are the hot wires first measure each wire to a bare metal place on the refrigerator. Continuity between the wires (2) to the bare metal indicates ground. The remaining 2 wires are the hot wires. Continuity between these wires indicates they are shorted together, which is the cause of your problem. Seek out the short. Since I am not an expert myself, the preceding suggestion may not work if the short only occurs at the time that the icemaker calls for water.

Pour about 2/3 cup of water into icemaker . If it freezes and does not dump , replace the icemaker . Check to make sure the coils are clean of dust , lint , pet hair , etc . If it does dump , and does not refill with water , replace the water inlet valve ( piece behind refrig where the wall water line connects to on the fridge ) . Check to make sure the fill tube that fills the icemaker is not blocked with ice , still indicating a bad water inlet valve ( slow seep ) .
Did you pour about 2/3 cup of water into the icemaker and did it dump ? If you did pour water into the icemaker , and it did not dump the cubes , then the icemaker is bad . If it did dump , so you replaced the water valve , then the fill tube directly at the icemaker is frozen with ice . It will need to be removed ( fill tube at icemaker ) and the ice cleared out by hot water . On some models , behind the refrig , 2 screws hold the fill tube in place . Remove the tube , and clear the ice . When reinstalling , have someone guide it from inside the freezer , to where it mounts on the icemaker fill cup .
The ice maker likely needs replaced however it could also be the fill valve. If you have the ability to locate the valve at the end of the fill hose (usually bottom right when looking at the back of the fridge) it will have 2 solonoids with electical connectors on them. Swap the connectors and press the water dispenser paddle. This should fill the icemaker. If it does, the valve is fine and the icemaker is bad.
I had a Whirlpool Model GD5SHAXNS in which the icemaker quit working about the same time (3 years old). I had water out the dispenser, I found that it was the icemaker itself failed not calling for water to fill it. I replaced it with a icemaker on-line for about $100 and problem fixed. I have been told his is a common problem with the icemaker in this model ref.
If there are ice cubes in the icemaker sitting there waiting to be dumped then the problem is in the icemaker. If the icemaker is dry then you have a water supply problem, even if you have a water in the door working.
1.Check the fill line inside the freezer at the icemaker, if it is clogged with ice then remove this ice and replace the water valve.
2. Check the water supply. Turn the water supply off, disconnect the water line from the Ref, turn the water back on an fill a small glass. If the water supply is good the solenoid on the water valve should be checked. This is done with an OHM meter.
