  • The refrigerator has a duel water valve, one for the ice-maker and one for the water dispenser (if equipped). 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. 
  • Note: The water does not go to the ice-maker or thru the filter unless the ice-maker turns on the water valve.

Change out your ice maker. If your icemaker has worked for 6 years, you got lucky! They normally have to be changed out every couple of years. We have an unlimited inventory of appliance parts for Whirlpool, so please call us to send your parts out and we'll get them out right away!

Whirlpool gold refrigerator icemaker leaking water


hi there,

sounds like the ice or water actuator or paddle is broken. purchase a new paddle and replace it.

the reason you have leak is because you have warm air entering through the broken part into the freezer.

can you provide me with the model # and i will send you a part breakdown.

Refrigerator Whirlpool Gold Conquest (Side by side)


the ice maker is of a poor design. There is a wheel that essentially is the mechanical timing device of the icemaker. The shaft in the wheel is of poor design and it breaks leaving a non-functioning useless ice maker. Whirlpool does not sell the wheel & shaft assembly - you have to virtually buy a new icemaker. Takes about 10 minutes to replace. Charge for the part = $107; charge for the labor = $175
