Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators
Our Whirlpool Gold model number GSF26C5EXW00 had the same problem. The ice maker seemed to randomly work sometimes, and not other times. Sometimes if I moved my food around in the fridge, it would make the ice maker work. Anyway, two service calls later, the Whirlpool tech told us that it is a VERY common problem with this model (which is exclusive to Lowe's apparently) and that the water line just freezes on it's own. Beware! We now have water dripping down the back of our freezer (inside the freezer) and it's sizzling on something at the bottom of the freezer. I've contacted Whirlpool and told them it's a lemon. Literally 11 months old and so many problems? We're demanding that they replace our fridge with another model. I don't trust his one at all...

I'm had the same exact problem. I travel and my wife would told me the ice maker wasn't working, but when I arrived home it miraculously worked. This happened many times over the last six months. Well, I didn't travel this week for my job, and my ice maker hasn't worked the whole week. The engineering in this fridge is definitely faulty. I'm past the 1 year mark too. I'll contact Whirlpool, but can only imagine where I'll get. Buyer beware....

I also have a whirlpool gold purchased through Lowes. 3 months new and stopped making ice and dispensing water. 4 service calls later, a part was replaced. I was also told there were problems with this model. 10 months later, no longer making ice and water again. I did not buy the extended warranty.
Has anyone been able to pursuade Whirlpool to replace?
