Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators
There can be a number of reasons from an unlevel icemaker (I like to adjust to lean a little towards the wall or backside) to high water pressure, bad fill tube, or low water pressure (low fill).
The most common is making hollow cubes that break open and the water freezes up the rest of the cubes in the bin. In that case you will have lots of shards or hollow cubes.
This is caused most often by a low fill but can be because of a bad icemaker thermostat.
The thermostat is located in the front end and most icemakers fill starting in the rear. If it is not filling all the way to the front where the thermostat is located it cycles before the cubes are fully frozen putting water in the bin that settles in the bottom.
That is most often due to a tap valve or icemaker outlet faucet that is getting plugged up.
Turn it off and after the cubes are frozen check to make sure it is filling all the way to the head end where the motor is located. You should have ice in all the sections.
But if otherwise,
Usually when that happens it means you have an air leak in your ice door flapper, get a flashlight and shine it down in the ice maker chute, if you see light on the other light, you will need a new ice dispenser door.
Hope this helpout.....
