SOURCE: I have a Whirlpool side

Humm thats a good one, but I will try to help you out. First off you say the icemaker is new, so does that mean you bought the icemaker and installed it on the refrigerator. Or is the refrigerator new and it has an icemaker. If you installed the icemaker new on an older refrigerator you can have a few problems. Most likely the freezer is not getting cold enough for the icemaker to cycle on its own. Especially if you are peaking in every few minutes like I would be doing. The icemaker will start a new cycle when the temperatur hits 0 degrees. If the freezer is only getting to 5 degrees the icemaker will not cycle. In that case the problem would be with the refrigerator not the icemaker. If the freezer is getting to 0 degrees then you may want to take that icemaker back and get a replacement. Good luck and I hope I helped. mca0824@aol.com

SOURCE: Whirlpool Gold Ice maker doesn't work

You definitely have something wrong with the ice maker if the water has turned to ice Schmerold. And the IM is not harvesting. The way it works is the IM needs 28 degrees F to harvest. If the coils below in the condenser are dirty the IM won't try to harvest. The Ice Mold thermostat is mounted on the firewall of the Ice mold in its own little cubby whole. To access it you will need to remove the head. Then remove the shell separating the Ice mold from the heads housing. There you will find the ice mold thermostat. It's only function is to get it on. If the temperature is right in the freezer. To test this precious thermostat one needs only to stick it into a freezer and let it hang out for an hour or so. Then grab it and check it for continuity. If it is open it has failed and belongs in the file 13. It is easily replaced and inexpensive.
On your model, ice maker operation is controlled by an optical sensor mounted on both sides of the freezer liner. The usual failure of this model is a bad emitter board, located in one of these recesses. You may view the service instructions for checking this sensor.

SOURCE: whirlpool refrigerator ice dispenser no longer workds

Ok, I show parts that are available for that model, sounds like the control board is defective for your dispenser, or possibly the Ice maker control board. It also could be a break in the wiring or the control itself. Below is a break down for those parts, wiring and the control behind the push to dispense ice or water. Hope it is not that control because some places don't provide that part. Now if it's a connection problem that we can find, I will do mu best to help you solve this.Could you insure the model number is correct as this is very important? appliancepartsse@yahoo.com

To All With This Same Problem ,

Remove the top freezer door hinge cover ( 1 screw holding it on ) , and disconnect the plug there . This will disconnect the power to the door dispensor .

Using a butter knife or small screwdriver , insert it in the bottom of the dispensor cover between the grill and the cover .
Push down and in wards , to force the bottom of the cover outward , being careful not to break the 2 or 3 built on plastic clips on the cover .
After the lower portion has been disconnected , lift the cover up to disconnect the top clips and then remove the plug on the cover .

The white piece on the dispensor now visible , is the bracket control .
The switch on the right side , is for water , the switch on the left side , is for ice . Usually , the ice switch , has a broken " spear " , which holds the switch in place . The whole bracket control , pt # 2180226 , will have to be replaced . Only 2 or 4 screws hold it on .
This part is easily replaceable by the consumer .
Just be careful when installing the switch , not to break the new " spears " and be sure to reinstall the plastic " spacers " in the same spot on the new bracket .
When reinstalling the dispensor cover , slip the top on first , and just lightly " pop " the bottom back in place .

2005 Whirlpool Refrigerator GS5SHAXNL cycling on and off and fan has gotten louder. Is this normal?


When the water solenoid valve leaks by initially, the water overflows into the freezer evaporator and I have seen an ice stalagmite up to 2 feet high form near the evaporator fan. The ice is probably inpinging on the evaporator fan blades. If not corrected, the fan motor will burn out and will need to be replaced. Take you model number to searspartsdirect.com and get an new water solenoid valve and install it.

Whirlpool ice maker start cycle then stops


The problem is the ice maker, the modular head of the ice maker has broken, hence the clicking sound and the raised arm stuck up. You will need to have an accurate model number and contact a local parts distributor for a new ice maker. It is a simple repair usually only 2-3 screws.

I have a whirlpool refrigerator . When the refrigerator completes its cooling cycle the motor and tray shakes and bangs the refrigerator. Can you tell me how to solve this problem Model # BT18NKXYWO1,...


I could not make the model number work but on them older model ice boxs they used the ice maker to do the defrosting. Remove the ice maker and the icebox is dead in the water. You can buy a module88d38c4.jpg that replaces that ice maker for much less than a new ice maker. You can also buy a gear kit (978138) for that ice maker but you may not have any success in rebuilding it. It is kinda complicated.

Whirlpool Gold Model GS5SHAXNL 00 makes loud grinding noise about every 40 minutes


I would check your ice maker. You can shut it off by slidding the control on the right hand side of the freezer wall. If the noise quits you need to repair the icemaker. In door ice has had some problem with their icemakers. If that is it they make a kit part #8201515 that will fix it.

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? Thanks, Sea Breeze
