Before You replaced the Water Valver - Shut your water off - disconnect the water line to the from the back of the refrigerator at the top where it goes into the icemaker. I used zip tie or something flexable to see if it would go all the way through to the
tube inside the refrig. If you have obstruction - use your hair dryer
to thaw the ice from inside the refrigerator tube. When the flexable goes all the way through. Hook back the water line to the icemaker. You will have ice soon. If Not, Replace the water inlet valve

Whirlpool gss26c5xyy ice maker not making ice, but will dispense ice and also will dispense water.


Andrea, make sure you are getting water to your ice maker. Most common ice maker problems are caused by lack of water. There is a water valve( dual) that feeds your water dispenser and ice maker that could be the culprit. Even if you are getting water out the door the valve can still be bad( separate water lines)..
Second thing to check are your optics( It measures ice level in your bin. If they are defective it will trick your ice maker into thinking its full of ice and not produce anymore.) They are located on the freezer walls just below ice maker..

Good luck

Water not getting to the ice maker kennmore 106.58212400


If you have not water getting to your ice maker than you need to follow the water service to the ice maker box or fridge. My best guess is that the water is still going to the ice maker. it is just froze up. I think you should un-plug it for a little while and see if it works after that. (if its a fridge) Hope this helps. Tim

Ice maker wont work


The ice maker gets its water from the filter too. If there is NO water getting to the ice maker then look at the solenoid that lets the water into the ice maker. If water seems to be frozen to the underside of the Ice maker, take the unit out and allow it to dry before putting it back in.

GE bottom freezer ice maker not working


Remember there are two sides to a dual water control valve, the water to dispenser side and the side that feeds the ice maker. Replace the WR57X10094 Dual Water Control Valve and I think you will be good to go on ice, Thanks Sea Breeze

Whirlpool automatic icemaker not working


Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. It’s on the back where the water supply comes in. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Getting water


I have Kenmore Coldspot refreidgerator and am having a problem with water pooling inside the fridge at the bottom underneath the drawers (mostly the left side). Where is the water coming from and it formed a thin ice.
Thanks

Water lines i think are ok but cant get water or make ice


Check the following:

See if the fridge has a water filter...it could be plugged and need replacement...check your manual for the location and replacement procedures

Check the inlet water line to the ice maker...it could be frozen...a hair dryer can be used to thaw it out and get the ice make to work again...be careful and don't overheat the ice maker inlet water line.

Make sure the water line is ok and not obstructed or kinked

Check the ice maker water valve to be sure it opens and isn't clogged

Cycle the arm on the ice maker and wait to see if it will make ice again

Icemaker


Check the power conection to the ice maker. If that's ok, then I would think the solenoid that controls the water flow has gone bad. Unfortunately, you will likely have to replace the whole ice maker, I don't think they are reparable.
