Ice maker dispenser door

I don't know if I will describe this problem correctly; The black rubber door that opens to dispense ice when thh lever is compressed by a glass is not closing on it's own. If I "tap" on it (while it's staying open) , it will close.

WD 40 on the spring, works great. Springs just get dirty and need a little tlc. Make sure to wipe it all off though because the ice you use comes from there!Debbie

LG Freezer ice maker makes ice but wont dispense


There is a mechanical flap (trap door) that should open to allow ice that is being pushed by the auger in the bottom of the bin to fall out. Possibly the solenoid that opens the door does not work, or you just have an obstruction (piece of ice) preventing the door from opening far enough to allow the ice to pass through. Here is some helpful information and instructions.

Lg freezer ice maker making ice but not dispensing


I have the same problem. I am getting tired of having to clear it out about once a week. I take the ice holder out and empty it in a large bowl and remove any large, melted together pieces, then replace it. It works fine for a while.

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

Maybe the "spring" system of the dispenser lever is faulty, try open it and closing with your hand and see if it will stay close on its own.
But yes you are right, it freezes because warmer air is entering though the dispenser

The ice maker stopped working, still get water to dispenser. fan works, don't know whatelse to check?


If your freezer is working, and water is reaching the ice fins/tray; check that the metal wire lever is in the down position for dispensing water and/or up for when ice is ready. The lever activates a small valve that allows water to drip onto the ice fins/tray...

Kenmore 50594000 with in the door ice dispenser. the Unit is making ice but will not distribute it through the door. nothing happens when you push the door dispenser lever. The unit dispenses water...


What usually happens on these is the bracket that holds the switches for the ice and water dispenser breaks and that is typically on the ice side.

The best way to check is to open the door and push the water dispenser lever with your hand. As you push it in and gradually get farther you will hear a "click". That is the switch.

Now do the same with the ice side and if you do not hear that click then the bracket is broken. Easy fix but everything back there is live so make sure you are confident ,and safe around power!

Unplug it! Part# is WP2180226

The red light may or may not be on this model. The first generation of ice maker optics had the spot for it but whirlpool never hooked it up. The second generation blinked when the door was open but it was for the tech to determine if they could "see the other side". This light has no function for ice dispensing.
