Hi,

These are the following steps you need to follow to change the water filter.

1. Find the indication light, located at the top of the Whirlpool refrigerator just inside the door. Thistells you when to change your water filter. A green light indicates the filter is good and a red light indicates you need to change the filter.

2. Find the filter knob. It is usually located at the base of the refrigerator in the kickplate or grill.
3. Turn the knob a quarter turn to the left to unlock the filter. Pull out and remove the old filter.

4. Add a new filter and push in. Turn the filter a quarter turn to the right to secure it in place.

5. Reset your filter indication light inside the refrigerator. Press down and release the switch five times within 10 seconds. The filter indication light should then turn green.

Our Westinghouse Virtuoso side by side refrigerator with ice-maker Model RS645V*10 will not make any ice. Would changing the water filter fix the problem or is it a bigger concern?


If you are getting water from dispenser, then changing filter wouldn't help. Is ice maker getting water? Is freezer at or near 0F?

Ice maker stopped making ice


Here is a check list to use to verify ice maker is good or bad or if something else is causing the problem.
1) Has the water filter been changed recently, or does it need to be changed? The filter being old can cause a reduction on water and lower performance of anything else that requires water.
2) Check the temperature in the freezer. Even though things are frozen in there, the ice maker requires that the temperature be at least 10 degrees F to even cycle. Ideal would be around the 0 degree mark.
3) Check the fill tube where water comes into the ice maker. From time to time this will get blocked due to water freezing in the tube itself.
********* If the first three checks all pass, either the water valve is bad and not allowing water to come to the ice maker, or the ice maker itself is not calling for water **********
Depending on the age of the machine it might not be a bad idea to change the water valve and the ice maker together.

No ice is being made.


Most likely either water valve is bad or ice maker is bad. You would need to determine if Ice Maker is sending voltage to water valve. If it is, replace valve. If it's not, replace ice maker. Also be sure filler tube going through back wall is not frozen. If it is, replace water valve.

I have side by side fridge Model # GS6SHAXML00 the ice maker overflows when it fills up do I need a new Ice maker


yes. i hate one word answers!!!
what is probably happening is the mold coating has worn out and it causes the ice to melt and not slide out of the i/m during the harvest cycle. it is very common and the only way to know is to pull out the i/m and look at the mold coating. if any part of the coating is gone then that is why it will overfill and then leak out into the bucket.

My ice maker quit working when I replaced the water filter.


Your model Maytag comes with an electronic ice maker and if you just recently changed the water filter the water should be dispensed for 2 or 3 minutes or until any air that may be trapped in the lines is removed. If air is sill present in the filter the ice maker opens the water control valve for about 7.5 seconds. If air that is what the ice maker will get until the air is completely purged from the system. If you fill that you have past that point then pour tap water into the ice maker and let freeze. After the water freezes the ice maker should cycle and dump. If not the the ice maker core may need replaced. If yes it dumps then the air may not yet purged or the water control valve for the ice maker side may be defective. This is one of those wait and see repairs. I will send you a link to the copy of the service manual and page 71 begins addressing the ice maker. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Not making ice


Hi: Change or just remove the water filter first. As your water dispensing slowed that is a clue. If the water filter is that clogged it will cause a problem with the ice maker. Plus the water you drink is not filtered anymore. City water is being run through 2 years of crud. If you don't replace it just remove it. I hope this helps, Jeff

The ice maker in my whirlpool gold refrigerator Model No, GR2FHTXTBOO, is not working.


Hello jitkagardner,
Welcome


You said, The ice maker in my whirlpool gold refrigerator Model No, GR2FHTXTBOO, is not working.

How old is the fridge?
When have you last changed the water filter.
Should be down below at the front grille!
Try these tasks!

If the ice maker is not producing ice or not enough ice
Refrigerator connected to a water supply and the supply
shutoff valve turned on? Connect refrigerator to water
supply and turn water shutoff valve fully open.
• Kink in the water source line? A kink in the line can reduce
water flow. Straighten the water source line.
• Ice maker turned on? Make sure wire shutoff arm or switch
(depending on model) is in the ON position.
• New installation? Wait 24 hours after ice maker installation
for ice production to begin. Wait 72 hours for full ice
production.
• Freezer door closed completely? Firmly close the freezer
compartment door. If the freezer compartment door will not
close all the way, see "The doors will not close completely."
• Large amount of ice recently removed? Allow 24 hours for
ice maker to produce more ice.
• Ice cube jammed in the ice maker ejector arm?
Remove ice from the ejector arm with a plastic utensil.
• Water filter installed on the refrigerator? Remove filter and
operate ice maker. If ice volume improves, then the filter may
be clogged or incorrectly installed. Replace filter or reinstall it
correctly.
• Reverse osmosis water filtration system connected to
your cold water supply? This can decrease water pressure.

Let me know how it goes!
