This happens from time to time. It is worth the fix, and not to bad if you are going to do it yourself. For some reason the flap isn't getting closed and simply needs to be replaced. There is a kit with a part number 8201649 with instructions. I would order this anywhere appliance parts are sold and do it. Since it comes with several parts, I would just replace them all for best results :)

ICE DOOR WILL NOT LET ICE FALL DOWN CHUTE,


the ice door has a solenoid that opens and closes the ice door. since you were able to replae the door i assume you can take it apart pull it back apart and the crank the door attaches too is connected on 1 side to an electrical soleiod test if the plunger moves up and down freely. also look for heat deformation around the plastic as well. if it turns out the solenoid is bad i would also recomend replacing the the fountain boards as well. I dont think you can put to much tension on the spring..

Ice Jam in Chute - Whirlpool IDI SxS


first check would be to see if the flapper door is closing all the way in the dispenser area. best way is to remove the ice bucket and shine a flashlight from the front up into the disp door area and look for light around the door from inside the chute.

another check would be to make sure the door delay mechanism is connected an not allowing the dispenser door to close to fast trapping a cubes in the door and causing an air leak in the chute..

Keep in mind if you use alot of crushed ice frost build up is faster than with just cubed.
