Whirlpool GD5NHAXMB00 The 2 solenoids on the back of the unit that split the water to the door and the ice maker

  • dt222 Feb 09, 2009

    I changed to water valve that has the two lines going out. One to the ice maker and the other to the water dispenser. The ice maker works great, water flows to it, but the water dispenser doesn't get any water. Is there something in the front panel that needs to be replaced and how do I get the front panel off without breaking it?

And these would be automatic, driven by the controls on the front panel, right?

is it the case that the solenoids need to be turned manually?

No water coming from water line to refrigator


There is a water solenoid at the water inlet in the back of the refrigerator that is operated by the ice maker unit. It is separate from the water dispenser. Make sure the wires at the ice maker are fully seated and not pinched at the door hinge. If the wiring looks good, then the solenoid needs to be replaced.

Maytag MFX2570AEM5 Ice maker not working no water entering ice maker


But you still have not verified that the hose is not kinked from the internal T where the water splits between the front water and ice maker. When you said you removed the solenoid, the water should have been pouring out. Seems to me a blockage between the T and the solenoid.

Why will my ice maker not work but i get water out of the water dispenser


Refrigerators use multiple solenoid valves to direct the water to the correct location. There could be a problem with the solenoid valve that controls the water to the ice maker or it could be maker itself not calling for water.

No ice


First check to see if the ice maker is operating. you can take the face plate off and observe if the gears are turning. The next thing to check is the water solenoid. This operates after the ice maker rotates to a certain degree, pushing on a micro switch that sends power to the solenoid (valve) that opens and allows water to flow into the ice maker basin If this solenoid is working you will hear a loud click. Next, check to see if the water in the inflow pipe is not frozen, by disconnecting the refrigerator AC power. Get a hair dryer and play the heat output onto a small plastic pipe that dumps into the back of the ice maker. This pipe sometimes becomes frozen with water ice and will not allow the water to flow into the ice maker. Mine has done this twice over the 12 tears I have had the refrigerator.

Whirlpool gold side by side ice maker not making ice... have replaced the ice maker... still not working, no water to unit... not frozen up... water dispenser is working fine


You have a dual solenoid water valve. Blue for the water and red for the ice-maker. It located in the rear lower part of the frig. The water solenoid needs replacing that will solve your problem. BB

ICE MAKER NOT WORKING


Yes, the ice maker controls the water valve. First check that there is water in the ice maker trays. If there is your valve is not the problem. If not, loosen the fitting on the water line that leads to the water solenoid valve. If you do not find water, check your manual valve that taps into the main water line. If you do have water, it may be that the water inlet above and behind your ice maker is frozen. You can thaw it out with a hair dryer and see if that is the problem. If this model dispenses water through the door, you can find the water solenoid valve behind the unit near the floor and reverse the two plugs on the solenoids. Place a paper towel in the water inlet tube that channels the water into your ice maker. Close the coor and press the water dispenser for 3 seconds. Open the door and see if the paper towel is wet. If it is, the water solenoid is fine. You can also remove the front of the ice maker and put an insulated jumper wire between the T and H test points to see if the unit ice maker will go through its cycle.

Optical sensor or valve problem


Your ice maker has an automatic shutoff. The ice maker sensor passes a beam from one freezer wall to the other, automatically stopping ice production when the storage bin is full. When you open the freezer door, you should see a red light on the top right freezer wall.When the freezer door is open or the ice storage bin is removed, the sensor cover or "flipper door" on the left wall of the freezer stops the ice maker from producing ice by blocking this sensor, When the beam is blocked, the red light on the right will blink twice. This is normal operation. as for the blink twice and pause I'm still checking on that. Make sure the water flow is coming from the solenoid valve located on back and bottom of refrigerator to the ice maker. Check the solenoid to see if the magnetic field is pulling the internal plunger open when ice maker ask for water. That can be checked with a multi meter at the wireing going to the solenoid and if the ice optics are telling the tray to fill voltage should be present. Insure that water supply is not restricted before it comes to the solenoid , like a bent line or clogged piercing valve.  Check that an ice cube is not jammed in the ejector arm of the ice maker. Remove jammed ice from the ejector arm using only a plastic utensil so the ice maker is not damaged. Call toll free in USA and a trained consultant will be happy to assist you. 1-866-698-2538
