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. In addition, check the water tube behind the ice-maker to make sure it is not frozen, blocking more water from entering. The water does not go to the ice-maker or thru the filter unless the ice-maker turns on the water valve.

Whirlpool refrigerator WSF26C2EXF01 water dispenser not working


This sounds like the water inlet valve has gone bad.. First before u replace it check to see that you have water coming to back of fridge as it could be restricted causing no water to reach the fridge.

Replace water inlet valve for ice dispenser with new. When icemaker cycles it dispenses through the water dispenser instead of tube going to ice maker. I have switch lines around but can only get water...


The ice maker is what tells the water control valve to open so it may be correct now and the thermostat in ice maker may be defective. Part 27 or 627985 down below where it says Whirlpool Ice Maker Parts Breakdown and in that photo is the ice maker thermostat. If your ice maker has been used for many years the complete ice maker may be better to replace. Ice maker Model=> 4317943

Ice maker works but water dispenser stopped working


There sould be a set of water control valves on rear of refrigerator and where the water comes into refrigerator dispenser and ice maker. When one goes bad you replace both. You can test the windings in each coil or test for voltage while someone presses dispense water.I will ty to locate one set with your model number. Sea Breeze

My ice maker has stopped working, the water continues to dispense thru the door yet the ice has stopped


Most likely the water control valve on the rear of the refrigerator is defective for the ice maker side of the valve. Try filling the ice maker with tap water and let freeze. If the ice drops and cycles and does not refill then the water valve is the problem. If the ice maker does nothing when you try this the ice maker is the reason. Send me your model number and I can tell you the parts that need replaced. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

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.
