Question about Whirlpool Gold White-on-White 21.9 cu. ft. Conquest Side-By-Side Refrigerator with Ice and Water GD2SHAXLQ Side by Side Refrigerator
My Water tube to the ice maker is not releasing water into the icemaker so it can make ice. I have changed the water filter in the bottom of the fridge. I have also defrosted the black tube that goes to the ice maker fill unit and cleaned out the ice resivoir of all stuck ice and still know luck the water in the door despencer still works. I wonder what I should do next. It all was working fine until 2 days ago then it stoppes. Any help you can offer I would be very greatful for.
I have the same problem too. Water flows through the door dispenser but the ice maker doesn't make ice. Can you please send instructions to me to repair this?

Hi all rootbeergirl here. I had the optics changed and the moter on the other side of the icemaker changed I was able to send them both back to Whirlpool because they were both faulty and my fridge was still under warranty and the repair person I had out was a whirlpool warranty certifed rep. I guess I was lucky but whirlpool did tell me that they were having issues with both parts burning out. But now that they are changed it has been been working like a charm. The repair man did suggest that if you are not useing your ice maker alot then you should turn it to the off posistion and let the ice run low or dump the ice holder on a weekly basis. Hope this helps. alsop to replace both parts if you have to pay runs about $300.00

I had the same problem. I unplugged the Frig. and began to take the ice maker out.
While disconnecting the ice maker, I noticed an ice plug in the black tube that allows water into the ice maker. I wiggled the tube and was able to get the ice plug out of the black tube.
So, you may be able to use a hair dryer to make sure there's no ice in the black tube. I plugged the frig. back in and MAKE SURE the Infrared is in the ON position, maybe even turn it OFF and ON firmly.
After about 2 minutes the Ice Maker began working. YEAH !!! You MAY need to UNPLUG the FRIG. a couple of times for about 2 minutes, and turn the INFARED ON AND OFF a couple of times, then wait to make sure ALL the PRESSURE/ICE is out of the Black tube.

The water supply line from the water inlet valve enters the rear of the freezer and releases the water into a large diameter fill tube. The fill tubes hangs above the fill cup which funnels the water into the ice mold. If the fill tube and fill cup are improperly aligned, water may spill out instead of going into the mold.
