SOURCE: Whirlpool icemaker not working

the refrigerator has a duel water valve, one for the ice-maker and one for the water dispenser. the valve that the ice-maker relies on may be bad, or it could be the ice-maker itself.
another thing that could cause it would be the temperatures in the freezer. the ice-maker will not call for water until it reaches under 15 degrees.

How do I access the drain pump on a Whirlpool Duet washing machine model WFW94HEXW2?

Hi Marc,
Unfortunately, access to the pump & filter is harder on the HEXW2 model than the Duets with the removable lower panel.
First you have to remove the lid panel (screws in top rear), then pull slightly rearward and up/out.
Next you'll have to remove the control panel, then remove the front drum boot from the front panel lip. A large diameter thin wire spring holds it in place, located just under the rubber lip edge. Begin the spring removal from a wire tab located toward the lower portion of the lip.

Then remove the door latch screws (IIRC), and the screws at the bottom edge and top of the front panel. The entire front panel must be removed to access the drain filter.

Ice making not making ice

Cycle the icemaker with the reset button. It is located on the bottom-front of the icemaker. Press and hold for 8 seconds to complete a cycle. You should hear an audible reset tone from the refer when complete. If it still doesn't work later in the day, it may need replaced. These units are well known for deplorable ice making capabilities. Samsung considers 60-72 cubes per day to be acceptable. I consider it an insult. For the icemaker reasons alone, I am looking into another (domestic) brand.

Hello Dollar1392,

I understand that you can not locate the water filter for your unit. If you have a water filter in your unit it will be located in one of two locations at the bottom of the unit in the grille or in the top of the refrigerator section on the right side in the rear corner. If the filter is not located at one of these locations then there is no filter on your unit. You will need to put an in-line filter in your water supply line.

Thank you for choosing if you have any further questions please post back to the thread.

Replace water filter

HI. Frist, make sure that your unit is equipped with this feature. if you have varifyed that your unit is equipped with a filter fo this nature, the location will be on teh front, lower grille area. This is the most common location for a water filter. Simply kneel down, and look at the bottom section of your unit, on the front. There is a grill, with a circular cut-out. This will be where the filter is housed. You will need to turn the handle counter-clockwise to release.

Now, in newer units, the filter will be located inside the refrigerator compartment, just above the top shelf, in the right, or left corner. if both locations do not show a filter, check the backside of the unit for a 8 inch cylindrical device.

Filter needs changing

You don't need a plumber. The filter is located inside the fresh food section, in top-right corner. There is an elongated cover with a tab in front. Press the tab towards the back of the fridge slightly and pull the cover front down. There is your filter. No need to turn the water off either. Just twist the filter counterclockwise and it will pop off.
The part number of the filter is UKF8001, can be purchased in any appliance parts store, for example here. "New10"coupon takes 10% off.

according to the model number that you listed in the heading it just shows a cover door that slides out and down and is attached to the top freezer shelf. is this correct? If so pull one side of the slide and it will release the cover.  Now if your talking about removing the dispenser cover on the fron of the freezer door there are 2 slots on the bottom of the cover that you insert a flat tip screw driver and carefully pry the cover off. hope that helps Peyton
