Question about Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice Dispensing System

Open Question

I have a whirlpool side by side with ice dispenser and holder in the door. The model number looks like GS6NHAXVO (or possibly Q on the last digit as the number is printed overlapping the upc code and hard to read). I have had a small amount of water leaking out the front of the door where the water/ice dispenser is located. There is water dripping out of the ice dispenser chute and there is a little flapper door inside the dispenser chute that doesn't seal the chute closed. The flapper door just dangles loosely, I suspect a spring is misaligned? Is there a way to fix this flapper door so that the ice doesn't drip out the front of the refrigerator?.

I fixed it by replacing the solenoid that operates the flapper door and the flapper door. They came as a kit and both were broken.

I still have a problem which is a bad circuit board. I can't switch from ice to water. I am stuck on ice, so I have not bothered to fix.

SOURCE: how to repair the ice dispenser door on a whirlpool refrigerator

If you will look on the bottom of the dispenser cover you will see 2 notches on the left and right side. carefully pry the cover off using a flat tip screw driver. then you will see a white switch plate that is either held on with latches or 2 srews depending on model. once this is removed you will gain access to the dispenser door. 
once you gain access I think you will find the hinges for the dispenser door are broken off. if so you will need a dispenser door repair kit form whirlpool part # 8201756 this kit includes new door and hinge repair kit. this is something you can do yourself if you are pateint and pay lose attention to detail. otherwise I would recomend a god servie company. thanks for using FixYa Peyton

Whirlpool side by side with ice maker dispenser not working


Hello, we are sorry to hear that you are experiencing this problem. We would suggest checking the ice chute to make sure that there is no ice lodged in the way of the flap. If the issue persist we would suggest having a certified technician out to look at the Refrigerator. If you would like further assistance you can send your name, phone number, address, model/serial of the appliance and the date on which you purchased the Refrigerator to Whirlpool_Reviews@Whirlpool.com. Thank you.

Could not locate your model number. However, Check fill tube for icemaker inside the freezer. Iced solid? replace water valve. No ice in fill tube? Get correct model number and resubmit your request.

Need someone to explain in detail how to change the water filter ....i have a replacement just don't know how to do it


At the bottom on the kickplate ( by the picture on this thread , you didn't give a model number ) twist the slot under freezer door , to the left and slide out filter . The filter slides off the holder . Slide new filter on and reinstall into the hole , twisting the holder clockwise so it seats .

Ice Dispenser flap is dangling


You need a ice door kit. It's either part # 8201756 or 8201758. I'm not sure which part number it is but you can go to ddapplianceparts.com and go to the left hand side of the screen and type in the 1st part number and if it says it's a ice door kit, then that's the part you need. We replace a lot of these.

Inside light on fridge/freezer not working.


OK, the digital logic being out reminds me of the possibility the mother board or circuit board has gone out. If you can get the complete model number on inside of fresh food compartment door frame, near bottom of door, I will be able to help you better. While I wait I will try to look up similar models and get better answers for you. Thanks, Sea Breeze
