The ice/water controls located behind the dispenser either has a bad connection or are faulty. Remove it by uncrewing the screws located on each side of the ice and water dispenser (just look up from the bottom and you will see them) And from my experience with this model it is usually the connector that is bad.

    The problem can be either part of the connector, usually what it plugs into though

  • spdutchmans Aug 26, 2010

    i replaced circuit board and the dispenser assembly and it still does the same thing

My Kenmore fridge (25370313211) won't dispense ice. Flapper door opens briefly, then shuts. No sound or movement from auger. Bad motor?

Ice and water dispensing problem; compressor shuts off when paddle pressed but dispensing is sporadic


could be the big motor that turns the ice in the bin when dispensing the ice. pull out the ice bin, check the big metal thing that turns when you press ice at the front dispenser. or you have a big chunk of ice that the motor can not turn.

tnx 4 using fixya,

Sadly, you will need to replace the entire 'flapper' assembly for this machine to fix this problem. This is the part in question. 8201649 for Whirlpool side by side. However, I would suggest if you can find the entire control panel assembly (which would be MUCH easier and have less chance to break things) to do that instead.

However, clearing the shoot wont do a thing for this issue at all.

Hope this helps ya ^_^

Hello David ,

Their are a few possible reason the ice is not being dispensed,

1) the door switch is bad...the door must be closed for the ice to dispense and perhaps the switch thinks the door is open

2) the switch that is activated when pushing the lever on the dispenser is bad

3) the dispenser motor is bad

4) the control board is bad

Why does water dispenser stop working? Seems to work fine after thawing freezer for about a day and seems to freeze up. Water line for dispenser routes through the door.


The water is door spigot can be freezing up if the ice door is stuck open. When you actuate your ice in door function you hear a solenoid CLICK. That solenoid is supposed to open the ice door flapper. If the flapper is not funtioning correctly (stuck open) then in as few as as 2 - 3 days your water in door can freeze again. If you want unit specific information we need your make and model number to better help you.

Thanks for hoosing FixYa,
Kelly

No, the circuit board mounted inside the ice dispenser on the door has no control over the defrost mode. Furthermore, the problem you appear to be having is not with the defrost system, rather the compressor attempting to start, but failing. This could be caused by a bad compressor, or a bad compressor start kit failure. Again, neither of these could be caused by an issue with the control board for the ice/water dispenser.

Whirlpool icemaker


Your unit has infered sensors on the frezzer left and right walls. There is a diagnostic test sheet brown in color in your kick plate.All you have to do is open frezzer door look on the right sensor it should blink twice followed by a 1-2 sec delay,if that is good press in flapper door on right sensor do not block path of infered beam you will not see a beam its invisable.Once you hold in flapper on right sensor the led should be solid.If solid optics are good if not solid led replace optic sensors

Icemaker works fine, only dispenses water


make sure that the ice shoot is not clogged up with ice or the in the ice basket where the ice goes through. Sometimes the ice can be stuck together and jam and nothing will come out.

Kenmore Refrigerator stopped dispensing water


Look up through the ice despencer on the front door of the freezer. Is the flapper door open? If so it needs to be fixed. If its not then try leaving the freezer door open for 3+ hours to defrost the frozen line in the door. If that doesnt work, the water valve must be changed.(located behind fridge, take off back cord board panel at bottom, the valve is blue)... GOODLUCK!
