Whirlpool Fridge water problem - goes to ice maker when door water used!

Whirlpool ED25PEXHW01 - side by side - When pouring water from the door water dispenser, water also goes into the ice maker. If I disconnect the solenoid for the ice maker, water does NOT flow to the ice maker. I replaced the ice maker, thinking it may be in the controls, but the problem is the same. Both solenoids pick at the same time when using the water dispenser.
Would that be a solenoid problem or something else? I do not have a wiring diagram so I do not know what the circuit is that picks either solenoid.

SOURCE: No water to the ice maker. No voltage to the inlet solenoid

icemakers work on a timed cycle and a timed fill. pressing the reset switch i would say solved your problem. I would switch the valves back to the way they were. The valve for the ice is smaller then the door water because the icemaker takes a small amount of water to fill. Good luck

A common problem I see is people have the wrong kind of saddle valve on their water line. Make sure you don't have a self-piercing saddle valve. You should have a drill type saddle valve on the cold water line. Reason why, not enough water pressure to the water valve on the fridge. This will let the valve on the fridge hang slightly open which will cause a drip. Check this first. You will find info on this in the installation section of your owners manual.

If there is a reset button on your ice maker try pushing it. Many ice makers have two holes for reset. A general rule of thumb is if the ice maker fingers are stopped in a slightly vertical position then your ice maker unit is working. If the fingers are stopped anywhere else then it needs some sort of attention or replaced. Make sure there is water, or ice in the ice maker tray, if not then the problem is with water supply.

SOURCE: Problem with ice dispensing. I

I am not sure if I understood the problem. Please bear with me as I try to provide solutions to common symptoms.

The Touchpad if it is not dispensing any water the issue may be the inlet valve may no longer be working correctly. This could be the faulty valve or no voltage is going through it cause it to not work properly. You may check the wiring for this one. The other is that the ice may have frozen.

The ice dispenser may not be dispensing ice because of a buildup of ice in the screw like piece in the dispenser. This prevents movement thus preventing ice to be dispensed. This may be caused by the freezer not cool enough since some ice will melt and eventually will turn to ice again but build up on the screws.

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.

Your water control has two sides. One side is for the ice maker and other is the water disapenser. If the ice maker valve becomes mechanically defective the water valve can allow water to continue to flow or not flow at all. Replace the water control valve and I believe this will solve this porblem, Thanks Sea Breeze

Ice maker doesn't work. How do I check to see if it's the actual icemaker or the water inlet valve?


go behind the fridge where the water comes into it. the hose should go into a valve. if you have water and ice in door. there will be two hoses coming out the other side. what I did was find the hose that goes up to the ice maker and unhook it and there was no water coming out while it was trying to make ice. that valve is replaceable and are even on ebay. on mine the water worked in the front door, but ice maker did not. I think the valve is common problem.

How old is the fridge? Mine lieterally caught on fire at the start device last weekend. My fridge was manufactured in July 2001. Be careful, The fridge I have is model# ED5FHGXKQ00. I am currently requesting a recall be made by Whirlpool on this appliance.
Other than that it could just be that the ice maker line has frozen or the "arm" in the ice chest is stuck and can't raise itself to pump water directly into the ice trays. Either way be very careful. I hope this was helpful.

No water to ice maker.Ice maker quit making ice.


What I found was the problem was that I had not changed the filter on a regular basis.Because of this the water flow to the ice maker was restricted.What this caused was the water inlet tube on the ice maker to freeze up.On my unit it is a black rubber tube about 11/4 long on the right side.You can see it if you know what you are looking for.If you squeeze it you can tell if it is froze or not.You can use a hair drier to thaw it out or squirt water up into the tube .It does not take very long..To make sure it is clear disconnect the tube on the back of the fridge and blow into it.If there is no restriction the tube is clear.After you have determined the tube is clear add water to the ice tray so the unit will make ice this will start the ice maker to cycle.Its making good ice now.

How do i turn my ice maker off? i have a viking side by side and the ice maker is just pouring water in my freezer...its a mess!


Turn the water off under the sink where the small line starts that goes to the fridge or there may be a cut off directly behind the fridge in the supply line.
Your water inlet valve may be stuck open. It's where the water supply connects to the fridge.

No water going in the ice maker but water dispener


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 ) .

Water dispenser no longer works.


Where the water supply connects to the Ref there is one water valve but, two solenoids. One for the water and one for the ice maker. An OHM meter will tell you if these solenoids are good.

Solenoids good;
Set the meter to volts and check if power is getting to the water solenoid while pressing the water despensor. No power, bad switch.
