  • Underneath one of the door shelves is a plastic place secured by screws. Remove the screws and you will see the motor covering.

I have a whirlpool gold gs6nbexrl002 the ice maker works but the motor will not turn to despense ice thru the door i was wondering if there was a wiring schematic so i could check for power to the motor? ...


Yes there is but Whirlpool has become very strict about posting their material. I have to purchase their subscription yearly to have help topics to assist my customers. I will assist you if you like but posting the GS6NBEXRL00 Wiring Diagram here or on-line I cannot do. Let me know through Fixya, my profile or the capsha at top and near bottom of site here, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Whirlpool gold gs6nbexrl00-- The ice dispenser motor will not dispense ice any longer. It did dispense occasionally if I would tap the door but now it doesn't do anything. I am out of warranty period so...


Hi, evaporator may need to be cleaned with a nickel safe - phosphoric and /or citric acid cleaner. Scale build-up on evaporator from water constantly flowing across it will prevent the sheet of ice from releasing. A mild scotch-brite cleaning pad with mild force to remove scale from the evaporator may also work. Follow up by running clean cycle to remove all dirt and contaminants from ice collection compartment.

Take care

Whirlpool Gold Side By Side Ice Dispenser Problems


Instead of what you think the sound is, try and see what is happening when you actuate the ice lever. open freezer door, depress the door light switch, or tape it closed. now actuate the ice dispenser lever, does the flapping door open, that which opens to allow ice from bucket into your glass? Now look at the bucket itself, do you see the gears rotating? remove the bucket from the door, and repeat, do you see the auger shaft rotating?

Either of these are a complex repair, one I would not recommend DIYers to try on their own, for they require taking the door apart, and if not done right, your door may not close properly. Normally I have no problem advising a repair, but there are some i dont, this icemaker system, and compressors.

Ice Dispenser not dispensing ice


Remove the top freezer door hinge cover and disconnect the plug there . This will remove power to the dispensor . Remove the dispensor grill , and also the 2 screws at the bottom of the dispensor front . Lift the front up and out , and remove the plug on the front . You should now see the white switch bracket . On the left side , is the ice dispensor motor switch , when usually , one of the spears holding the switch breaks off , not allowing the ice dispensor to work . If this is the case , the part number is 2180226 . Only held on by 2 screws . When/if replaceing , be sure to put the plastic spacers in the correct position next to both switches , and be careful not to break one of the spears , holding the switches .

Whirlpool side by side GD27DQXFW01; ice cubes are not dispensing


We will need to check the voltage at the auger motor while depressing the dispense switch. If all the other features work on the dispenser panel while I would consider checking the voltage going to the motor. Some auger motors are in areas where water causes the voltage to be shorted by constant moisture. We will need to remove the panel and simulate what you have done on the outside but this time we need to see if the voltage has been altered or if the auger motor itself is defective. Sea Breeze

Whirlpool Gold Model GD25SFXHS03 exterior ice lever not working


Your problem is probably a broken plastic switch bracket . Pt # 2180226 . To access , use a butter knife between the dispensor grill and the lower portion of the dispensor cover . FIRST , remove the cover on the top freezer hinge , and disconnect the plug there . This removes all power to the door . Insert the knife about 1 " from the side , and push down and inward , to push the plastic tab of the cover , outward . Do the same for the other side . Lift upward to slip the top tabs free of the mount . Disconnect the plug to the dispensor cover , and remove the cover . The white piece with the 2 switches , probably has a short plastic stub , broken off which holds the ice dispensor switch . Looks like maybe 4 small screws , hold the switch bracket on . Transfer the switches carefully ,because you are working with plastic . When reinstalling the dispensor cover , after attaching the receptical , slip the top portion of the cover in place , and pop the bottom to latch the lower clips .

you p robably have a frozen fill tube for the icemaker. coming inot the rear is a tube for dispensing water into the icemaker. check this for ice if it is frozen you can thaw it out by using a blow dryer to melt theice out. on some models this tube comes thru the back wall of the freezer for cross the freezer icemakers there is a black tube that comes out of the ceiling. if you have any questions please post here and I'll get back to ya thanks Peyton
