The ice is no longer coming out cubed - just a big clumped together mess on my Samsung Bottom Freezer's internal ice cube maker

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
This symptom is caused by a water inlet valve that is bypassing water when it is supposed to be shut off. The inlet water valve is not repairable and must be replaced when this symptom occurs. There can be yet other problems with he ice-maker itself, but changing the water inlet valve will correct this about 95 % of the time. Changing the inlet water valve is the first step in troubleshooting. Should you call for in home service; the tech will change the inlet water valve before doing any other troubleshooting and will most likely have to return after 24 hours to continue ice-maker troubleshooting.

If you need help locating a replacement inlet water valve I will need your complete model number.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

  4. Remove the two screws on the back of the top panel securing it to the cabinet.
  5. Slide the top panel to the back of the machine and lift it off the cabinet.

Cold water doesnt work

Hi, First check and see if there is something plugging the cold water inlet screen. Remove the cold water hose to look at the screen. Another way to test the inlet valve is set the washer to cold wash, listen for the inlet valve to buzz or hold feel the cold inlet fitting and see is you can feel it vibrating.
If there is nothing plugging the inlet screen and the inlet valve doesn't buzz, you will need to change it.
Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.

Ice cube tray isn`t filling with water but I have water on the door dispenser.

Hi, Check the inlet tube that comes through the back wall into the ice maker. See it has froze shut.
If there is ice in the tube, thaw it out and let the ice maker cycle. Plan on changing the inlet valve if the tube is plugged.
If the inlet is not plugged, let the ice maker cycle and listen for or test the valve for 120V. If there is a buzzing sound or you are getting voltage and no water, remove the tube frrom the valve that leads to the ice maker and see if water comes out of the valve.
If no water comes out of the valve, change it.
I hope this helps you.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Replacing water inlet valve

First of all, UNPLUG the washer before attempting any repairs, and follow these steps:

1. You will need to remove the washer top panel by loosening the three screws in the back. With the screws removed, the panel slides back, then off.
2. Turn off the water supply valves and disconnect the water inlet hoses.
3. The inlet valve should be very simple to replace at this point. Disconnect the electrical connections and the hose(s) leading from the valve to the dispenser.
4. There should be a a mounting screw holding the inlet valve to the back panel. Remove the old inlet valve and install the new valve in the reverse order of the steps I just provided.

This is should be a fairly straight forward repair that anyone can accomplish without the assistance of a repairman. If you get confused along the way, please post back and let me know. i hope this answers your questions.
