I have a Whirlpool Refrigerator model number ED5GHGXMBOO. I have just hooked it up. I have the water line hooked up but it is not making any ice. Is there an adapter or something that i will need to purchase in order for it to work? The water line works with no problem. Thanks

SOURCE: how to repair the ice dispenser door on a whirlpool refrigerator

If you will look on the bottom of the dispenser cover you will see 2 notches on the left and right side. carefully pry the cover off using a flat tip screw driver. then you will see a white switch plate that is either held on with latches or 2 srews depending on model. once this is removed you will gain access to the dispenser door. 
once you gain access I think you will find the hinges for the dispenser door are broken off. if so you will need a dispenser door repair kit form whirlpool part # 8201756 this kit includes new door and hinge repair kit. this is something you can do yourself if you are pateint and pay lose attention to detail. otherwise I would recomend a god servie company. thanks for using FixYa Peyton

Ice maker is not working


If I understand the problem correctly, it sounds like there is ice frozen in the tube that the water flows through just before it comes into the ice maker. If this is the case, I have the solution.

This problem is caused from a bad water valve. The water line that connects to your refrigerator hooks up directly into your water valve. The way it works is this. The water valve keeps the water pressure to OFF. Whenever your ice maker needs water it simply asks the valve to open and it does. The problem is this. The valve has malfunctioned and isn't totally shutting off anymore. This lets a tiny bit of water through. This water slowly makes its way up the water line into the freezer where it freezes in your tube :) You just need a water valve! With a model number I can give you an average price. Chances are it will run anywhere from $50 - $100. Just depends on where you get it. This is also a very easy thing to change!

The icemaker is not working


check the supply line to the refrigerator. this will help in troubleshooting. it usually hooks up near the bottom at a solenoid valve. If you have water at the bottom and not the top, replace the valve. It is a simple project

Ice maker sequence is out of syncronization


I believe your ice maker is the reason for the problem. If you have a model number it is possible that parts are avaiable. Sometimes the complete ice maker will need to be replaced because the controls are electronic in some model ice makers. Could you send the model number of your Whirlpool Refrigerator?

Hi: No.1 it takes 24 to 72 hours for the machine to make ice. No. 2, If the freezer is not at zero degrees it will not make ice. I'm not talking frozen but zero F. Ice cream will be rock hard. These icemakers are thermally proctected as not to dump unfrozen ice in the tray. I hope this helps, Jeff

Whirlpool icemaker


Try using an hairdryer or defrosting the unit completely , this often get rid of blockage caused by frozen lines fixing the problem.

The water lines can also be unblocked from dirt using a thin flexible shaft. This after defrosting.

If all that does not fix the problem, then you may need to replace the water valve, the icemaker solenoid, or the whole icemaker assembly.

Enter the model number on one of two websites below to get parts and diagrams for your appliance:

Whirlpool refrigerator will not make ice


This is almost always due to a faulty shutoff valve. The valve is at the back, where the water line connects to the refrigerator. Turn off the water supply, remove the water line with a wrench. You should be able to take out the valve with a few screws and by removing one or two wiring clips and the plastic line on the other side leading to the fridge. A new one costs about $60 - $80 at a appliance parts store. Bring the old one with you, and the refrig. model number, and make sure the new one looks the same as the old.

The problem stems from the valve continuing to leak a bit of water to the icemaker after it fills the tray and shuts off. This trickle of water freezes and blocks the line, so matter how many times you defrost it, it will just happen again.
