Question about Whirlpool 21.0 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator with IceMagic Plus Ice Maker

1 Answer

Whirlpool icemagic Hi there. I had filter problems so I shut off the water to the Icemaker. We pulled the bar up, so it wouldn't try to make ice cubes. It was down for about 6 months (?) Problem w/ filter resolved, turned the water back on and now water pours out of the tube into the ice maker and overflows onto freezer bottom. I suspect the tube to the ice maker may have been jarred out of place, but I don't see where the tube attaches to the ice maker. It seems to just lay on the gear. Do you think there is any hope for me? Thanks

    I have flipped the arm back and forth several times and no ice but 2 or 3 cubes. I can hear the motor run and so much water had come out the tray was a solid block of ice. Now no water comes out and no ice. Could the line be clogged?

Fill cup of the icemaker is frozen, take your finger and feel in the little white square cup at the rear of the ice maker, if you feel ice in it then thaw it out wit a hair drier and you are good to go

The Ice maker seems to have stop making Ice... There seems to be water getting to the Ice maker.... Placed fingers inside of voide and there seems to be water but it is not freezing......... can you help


Have a look under the icemaker itself. See if there is a "test" button or switch. If so, press it , the ice tray should dispense the ice made and then return to its original position, then refil with water. Also make sure your water filter is clean or replaced if its more than 6 months old.

Icemaker not making ice


Your inlet tube that goes to the icemaker may be frozen. To Check: Shut off water supply to Fridge, disconnect the water line that goes to the icemaker at top back. Use a flexible item to insert in the water line connection. I used a zip tie. If the flexible item won't all the through to the ice maker, the line is frozen. Thaw out the tube from inside the freezer with a hair dryer. Re-connect everything, you now have ice . . . Solution #2: You may have to replace your "Water Inlet Valve" located at bottom right rear of Fridge. Easy to do, just follow the color codes, be sure and shut off the water.

Whirlpool IceMagic Plus not working.


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If it dumps the ice but doesn't refill , replace the ice maker . If it doesn't dump , and the cubes stay in the ice maker , replace the ice maker .

The switch on the icemaker for normal , runs the icemaker normaly . In the ice plus , a small fan comes on , blowing the inside air , over the ice maker mold , to help it freeze faster .

No ice


Pour about 1/2 cup of water into icemaker . If it freezes and dumps , the water valve is bad ( where the wall water line connects to the fridge ) . If it freezes and does not dump and the ice stays in the icemaker , replace the icemaker . Also check the fill tube ( the tube going from the freezer wall to the icemaker itself ) to see if it has frozen closed . If it has , the water valve is not closing completely , and letting a drop thru and freezing in the tube . Also an indication of a bad water valve .

Water leaking from icemaker on outside


If this is your water dispenser leaking
Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out of it and see if you have a slow drip. Try the dispenser to see if it's just drips after use.

No water to ice maker


If you have a whirlpool icemaker inside of your freezer (I've read on other posts that whirlpool ice makers are installed in various makes and models), there is a white cover over the ice maker (it's square). Remove the square cover with your hands or stick a flat head screwdriver in the side until you can pull it off.

Once the white square cover is removed, you should see a white wheel with gear teeth. In the middle of the white wheel is a plastic snap that should be holding it in. I noticed that one of the little plastic snaps was broken...which caused my "no ice" problem. A simple test is to push the white wheel toward the icemaker. If the wheel starts turning, you have found the problem. You see, behind the whhite wheel are metal contacts that need pressure for the ice maker to work. Without the center plastic snaps holding it it, the pressure is gone...and so is the metal to metal contact.

I previously called Whirlpool, searched all of the web...to no avail. Every other solution was "check for ice blocking the water tube" or "replace your water filter". That's all balony. If your regular water dispenser is working, you don't have an ice problem. And if your water dispenser is working, you don't have to change your fitler either.

If you realize that the little white wheel is the culprit, just google "whirlpool module" and you will see it for sale. I found one on ebay for under thirty buckaroos with free shipping.

Hope this helps.
