Question about Whirlpool GS6NBEXR Side by Side Refrigerator
Water at glass filler but no water to icemaker. Does the infrared sensor operate the icemaker water valve, or should I think the water valve solenoid is bad? Note: weird that when i put my meter across the disconnected terminals from the water valves I only had 53v and glassfiller works but ice maker has no water. Tage on valves says 120v

Comment regarding catriver Aug 18 post: Shorting L&V caused valve to work I believe, at least I think I heard it operate, but shorting T&H did not cause gear to move. So does that indicste a different problem? Still no ice. JimB

It sounds like you have covered all the primary troubleshooting checks. There is only one thing I can think of at this point.
Check the voltage coming to the water valve during the icemaker cycle. The power to the valve is decreased by the resistence of the icemaker heater from 120 volts down to about 108 volts. It is not uncommon to have a valve that will open when you put 120 volts to it, as you do when you switch solenoids, but not open at the decreased voltage when it goes through the icemaker circuit.
If you are getting voltage to the valve when it cycles, and you know for sure the water line to the icemaker is clear, then you will need to replace the valve.
Post back and let me know what you find.

Your unit has infered sensors on the frezzer left and right walls. There is a diagnostic test sheet brown in color in your kick plate.All you have to do is open frezzer door look on the right sensor it should blink twice followed by a 1-2 sec delay,if that is good press in flapper door on right sensor do not block path of infered beam you will not see a beam its invisable.Once you hold in flapper on right sensor the led should be solid.If solid optics are good if not solid led replace optic sensors

The reason could be several different possibilities. the water control valve for the ice maker no longer works or one of the many components inside the ice maker is needing replace or adjusted. Go to link below and enter model ED5VHGXM into model search. Click on photo #12 ice maker and you get a breakdown of of all the parts. Let me know, Sea Breeze
