Question about Whirlpool Gold GS6SHEXNQ 25.6 Cu. Ft. Conquest Side-By-Side Refrigerator w/ In-Door-Ice Ice Dispensi...
There is a plate on the bottom of the ice maker, I think its aluminum, it gets corroded & the ice sticks to the plate. The plate is located at the bottom of the ice maker, it is mounted on a shaft that goes thru the bottom and at the base where it exits the ice maker there is an "O" ring, Below the "O" ring is a round stainless (metal) friction ring. Below this is a screw which holds it all on the motor shaft. U will need the kit to replace the plate & it will come with a new "O" ring & stainless friction ring. There is a special tool that has a hook on one end & a set on the other. U will remove the screw on the bottom first & pull up on the plate to remove the entire part. Next u will use the tool to pry out the o ring & friction ring. The kit should a tube of grease. Put the grease (lube) on the shaft, then install the new plate from the top just as the old one came out. Last u will put the new o ring on the shaft ( this is done from the bottom ) & install the friction ring by tapping on the ring with the tool to set the ring flat. This will stop the water from dripping out the bottom of the tray by running down the shaft thru the defective o ring . This is where the water u say is leaking is coming from. A good parts house will have the kit & the tool, neither is expensive. Definitely less than a new ice maker!! It sounds bad but its not that bad for a sunday project. Good luck, sl
ps sounds like GE?Hotpoint problem

Remove the bucket and clear it completely out you will have to rotate the bar to clear out the crushed ice and snow I have had to run warm water through mine and then let it sit out to dry. Good luck its a pain
