When removing doors with an ice maker. Under cover on top off unit there is an electrical hook up, unplug it. then at bottom of freezer door there is a water line, it has a quick connect on it. Push in to release then pull apart. Take screws out of top hinge and remove door. Same on refridge side, just no wires or water line.

unscrew the cover plates on the top door hinge there are quick connects for the elects and 3 bolts on the freezer side and just 3 bolts on the refg side before you removed the freezer door pull the kick plate and there is a water line quick connect you will need to disconnect it as the tube runs thru the hinge after the top bolts are out pull up on the door and it is off >>>Note: there are some small plastic washers on the hinge post make sure you dont lose them

SOURCE: I have a Whirlpool side by side fridge, model

The general rule is to put 2/3 cup of water into icemaker , and if it dumps , but doesn't fill , replace the water inlet valve . If it doesn't dump , replace the icemaker Pt # 2198597 . Check the black fill tube above the icemaker fill cup , to see if it is clogged with ice . The fill line runs from the back of the refrig , between the liner and cabinet ( unaccessable ) , and down to the icemaker . Some of this model refrig , come with a coupling on the back , which you can disconnect and blow thru , to see if it is clear to the icemaker . If you do not have a coupling , you may want to aquire one Pt # 4211117 , in case this happens again , also , turn your freezer control down slightly , it will be a quick troubleshoot step . It sounds like the optics are ok , but I'll still give you the information .
Open the freezer door and if you get 2 pulses followed by a pause repeatedly , press in on the left side flapper door and the optic should stay on steadily . If you still get the 2 pulse and pause , then the optics are faulty . If you get no light , the icemaker is in the harvest mode ,( trying to dump ice ) . If the icemaker arm is in the normal position and no light , the optics are faulty . When the optics are faulty , replace both sides , the emiter board and reciever board . They come togather in a kit Pt # 4389102 .

I have a whirlpool WRF736SDAM11 french door fridge. I've changed the icemaker per a repairman, but I still have no ice.


if water is dispening and you replaced the ice maker, the most probable cause is a bad water valve. The valve has two outlets, one for the water and one for the ice maker; it appears that you ice side is not working as it is not likely to be from the Ice Maker

good luck

The water isnt getting thru to the icemaker, i have used a hairdryer on the water valve and still nothing , i even changed out the water valve but alas no water is being pumped thru to the icemaker, what...


Hello,

Does water dispense through the dispenser ok in the door dispenser??

If yes wate r dispenses through the door ok the problem is going to be with the icemaker itself and its not sending power to the water valve when its supposed to fill so it could make the ice

If water doesnt dispense through the door check that water pressure into valve is sufficent..even if water does dispense what seems to be ok check first that thier is good water pressure into the valve before replacing icemaker

Icemaker is not making ice cubes. fridge is 3 months old.


Well if your ice cube bucket is on the freezer door it self then it could be anything from the optics system to a bad icemaker to a water valve issue...if its located on the side freezer wall. the water valve could be bad or the i/m module/icemaker

I have a whirpool and there no water comming out please eny suggestion thank you


On the back of the fridge, where the water tube goes in, there is a white, or a blue and white water solenoid. it has one water tube going in and two going out if you have a icemaker and water in the door. One side of the solenoid controls the water to the door and the other goes to the icemaker. If one side goes out, you have to replace the whole thing. Unplug it, remove it, take it to the hardware store along with the model number of your fridge. They should be able to get you gong again. The water tubes only hook up one way, so don't worry...

My icemaker is not dumping the ice when it's frozen.


Replacing the icemaker is neither expensive nor hard. Order a replacement on the Internet.

Sounds like a malfunction in the icemaker itself.

ICE MAKER QUIT MAKING ICE ON MY WHIRLPOOL FRIDGE


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.

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

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.

The icemaker stop working on my Whirlpool side by side frig


If there are ice cubes setting in the icemake waiting to be dumped then the icemaker is bad. If the icemake is dry then the water valve is bad. You have one water valve with two solenoids. One works water in the door and the other sends water to the icemaker.
