Question about Whirlpool 21.7 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator ED22PQXF

1 Answer

Whirlpool side by side refrig. Icemaker makes cubes and ice blocks from a drip that drips only when in the "make ice cubes" mode - the bar is down. Looks like one big icecicle leading to a blob of ice in the tray next to the cubes that were also made.

The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn't take much to eventually block the fill tube.
The valve can leak because of sediment in the water preventing it from closing or low water pressure.

My ice maker in my side by side refrig/freezer leaks water so that a solid block of ice is formed in the tray maker. This prevents dispensing of cubes. What can I do?.


Hello,

The cause of that is the water inlet valve is not fully closing but instaed its staying open a little and seeping water through it all the time which is dripping into the storage bin for the icemaker and freezing all the ice into one huge block. To repair that the water inlet valve on the back of the ref. where the house water supply line attaches to would need to be replaced.

An ice cube gets stuck in the icemaker as it empties.


The ice making unit needs to be cleaned with a mild acid such as citric acide like commercially available Ice Machine Cleaner. minerals have built up and make the ice stick to where they will not harvest properly.

Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

I have a kenmore elite fridg that is not making ice,but i have water at the door. modle # 50509990. THANKS.


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into icemaker ( if there is no cubes in there now ) . If the icemaker dumps the cubes when frozen , replace the water valve . If it doesn't dump , replace the icemaker . Also make sure the coils at the bottom of refrig in front , are clean of dust , lint , pet hair , etc . Also check the plastic hose inside the freezer , to the icemaker , to make sure it is not frozen . If it is , replace the water valve , due to slow drip leak .

Lg side by side Ice maker not filling all of the tray/dripping


You may have a restriction in the icemaker.  Remove the icemaker and make sure that there is no ice buildup other than in the cube slots.  Also make sure that the fill tube is clear of any ice obstruction.
