Tammi, you first want to check to make sure the water inlet tube to the icemaker is not frozen shut. Next, get yourself a jumper wire about 4 inches long with the ends stripped exposing the wire on each end. Pull off the ice maker cover, it will pull right off. Now you are looking at the module. On the module, left side, you will see two test points marked V and L. Insert one end of the jumper wire into V and the other marked L. You are now sending 120 volts to the water valve and water should fill the ice maker providing the inlet tube is not frozen over. If it doesn't fill, you either have a bad water valve or module itself. Also check to see if the clips that hold the center gear on the module are not broken. Catriver..post back.

First pull out the ice bucket and close the door.  Set for cubed ice.  Press the button for ice to come out and listen for a loud clunk noise.  That is the sound of the solenoid.  You can open the door, hold the light switch and press the button and watch for the solenoid moving up and down.  Solenoid is at the back of the freezer in a little square opening where the rod on the ice bucket goes into.  If that solenoid is moving ok then put the bucket back in while the solenoid is in the down position and cubes should work.  If solenoid is not working then it will need to be replaced.  Let me know what you find.

common low flow is a kinked line or a bad water valve, the solioid valve has a filter that may be dirty. then go from there

I have a whirlpool refrigerator Model GI5SVAXVL01. (2 door upper- Freezer on bottom). SN K01668079 About once a week there is a puddle of water on the floor right front side of refrig. I cannot tell where...


After looking carefully at the exploded views of this refridgerator
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Whirlpool-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-GI5SVAXVL01/1198/0161000?pathTaken=&prst=0&shdMod=GI5SVAXVL01

I believe your problem is caused by a leaking hose or fitting for the water dispenser
Pay close attention to items # 11 and 19 on the diagram labeled Refridgerator door parts
Try turning off the water supply to the dispenser and see if the problem is resoleved... if so you know thats where the problem is

Water slowly coming out of dispenser


Is this a new Unit or a second hand unit? If it is not new... most likely there is debris in the water valve inlet or the actual saddle valve / faucett connection to the refrigerator water supply line is partially blocked.

Without a Model number to ensure the exact parts inside the unit for you to check is a bit of a problem.

Most of the water valves are the same and an example of yours would be item 10 of this link: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5132635&diagram_id=945271#d945271

- What I recommend you do is disconnect the water supply line on the back of the unit and check 16 oz. of water flow at the end of the supply line. Water OFF before disconnecting the supply line.

- IF the water flow is the same as through the door you will need to find out why there is not enough flow from the water supply source.
- Additionally IF you have a water filter installed external to the unit... it can be clogged or full of sediment and need to be changed.
- If you discover that the water supply is of good quantity and pressure there is also the possibility of a pinched or kinked plastic water line some where inside the refrigerator.
- Sometimes the hose that passes through the door hinge flattens out and restricts water flow.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Water dispenser hose broken


Hi;
you would have to remove the door(and front kick panel) turn water & power supply off first. Unclip water lines and electrical connector on top of fridge. You will require food grade water pipe 6-8mm, this will slide thru the hole, have patients when doing this

The water from my water dispenser isn't cold.


Hi, Only thing you can do is check the temperature in the fresh food section and it should read 34-27 degrees. The temperature controls should both be set at half of the #'s on the dial.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Water dispenser no longer works.


Where the water supply connects to the Ref there is one water valve but, two solenoids. One for the water and one for the ice maker. An OHM meter will tell you if these solenoids are good.

Solenoids good;
Set the meter to volts and check if power is getting to the water solenoid while pressing the water despensor. No power, bad switch.

In door ice dispenser does not work but the water dispenser does.


check to make sure there is water or ice in your ice maker tray. If none then problem is usually a water supply issue to the ice maker. Behind the frig are the water supply inlet valves. One is for the water dispenser in the door. THe other is for the ice maker. However when one goes bad they both are replaced as one unit. Also Check position of fingers in ice maker. If not in a vertical position then try to reset the ice maker unit and worse comes to worse, replace it with a new one.

Water Dispenser on Side by Side not dispensing


It's quite possible it is plugged by hard water deposits forming in the supply line as these lines are quite small. You can check if it is plugged by shutting off the supply line and removing it. After removal turn it back on but have the end in a bucket in case the blockage is in your fridge unit. If water comes out it is in the fridge. Usually there is a screen to prevent large particles from entering. Make sure that is clean. Try these and see if that helps. If it doesn't get back to me as the trouble shooting will get more intense. I'm hoping this helps.

Water only dribbles from the water dispenser


It sounds like you have a clog. If the clog is at the nozzle, you would still have pressure, however nothing would come out. It could also be the valve that opens for the dispenser.

Take it apart and look. I would focus on the dispenser end.

Good luck!
