Whirlpool Gold icemaker not working Model GD5SHAXLB02
Ice maker stopped working.. I noticed that ice was fully formed and appeared to be ready to drop but never did. I haven't heard water filling up either. I read other posts about the "arm" but our model doesn't have the "arm".

Try this and add tap water to the empty ice maker. Turn it on if off and if after the water freezes the ice maker cycles dumping the ice into ice bucket and if the ice maker does not refill with water on its own you will need to replace the=> 2188746 Water Inlet Valve If the ice maker does nothing then replace the=> 2198597 Ice Maker Assembly Thanks John Tripp Appliance 911
Could you double check your model number. I am unableto pull that model number up. You mentioned that your ice makehas stoppedworking. This could be several things, like water control valve,defective ice maker, defective ice maker thermostat and more. Let me know,Thanks, SeaBreezeWHIRLPOOL PRODUCT MANUALS
Change out your ice maker. If your icemaker has worked for 6 years, you got lucky! They normally have to be changed out every couple of years. We have an unlimited inventory of appliance parts for Whirlpool, so please call us to send your parts out and we'll get them out right away!
I have the same model. This has happened to me several times (usually when the door was kept ajar without notice). Simply open the door, take a common hairdryer and blow at high speed (hottest also) all around the area of where you can feel the ice in the tray, but hasn't dumped yet. It will usually take about 5-8 minutes of consistently moving back and forth around that area. What has happened is the lines bringing water to the trays have frozen over. When you "thaw" them out, the ice made will dump in about 45 minutes. When you hear the ice fall, you will know it's in working order again. I have NOT heard this is a "flawed" icemaker, only that it is hypersensitive to freezing lines when a door is left ajar. In your case, to prevent this from happening again. If you shut the icemaker off again, make SURE you turn off the source of the water feed BEFORE you turn off the ice maker. By doing this, the lines will empty as it makes it's last tray of water. Try that - very confident it will fix your problem!
I had a Whirlpool Model GD5SHAXNS in which the icemaker quit working about the same time (3 years old). I had water out the dispenser, I found that it was the icemaker itself failed not calling for water to fill it. I replaced it with a icemaker on-line for about $100 and problem fixed. I have been told his is a common problem with the icemaker in this model ref.
Start by cleaning the condenser with a brush and a shop vac. Then get some nickleguard ice machine cleaner and wash the units plate's down going by package directions, then retry before calling a tech. It may start working but if it does not then it may save you some money by having the unit clean before the tech gets there. Ice machines are not a DIY repair. Sowwy
