Question about Whirlpool ED5HHEXT Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Installed a new icemaker approx 36 hours ago and still no ice. I have water in the door. I took water line loose at back of freezer and can't get water to flow thru it. The unit is a whirpool side by side with model number ED0GTQXMQ00. I had the old ice maker out of freezer for about 1 week while waiting for parts. Everything worked until I broke the old one messing with it. Could a solenoid have went bad controling the ice maker water flow?

There is a wire lever that allows for the icemaker to be turned off. If it is in the up position the icemaker will not make ice.

    Duh! I'm smart enough to know how to turn it on! Any other suggestions?

  • Mark Carey Jan 02, 2011

    It just pivots up and down. Just move the wire lever to the down position.

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking or no water at icemaker or door either one, then the valve at the rear bottom of ref needs replacing
First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also if it is getting drinking water to the door but not to the icemaker (or vice versa) Then you need to replace
the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. It is a double valve and one side is not working
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

How to defrost the water line coming into the icemaker? The water line that goes from the fridge to the freezer is frozen and the icemaker does not have water to make ice and the water dispencer does not...


Good day,
The machine has problems and they hve to be addressed.
The machine needs to be shut off, and the food moved.
I do not recommend using a hair dryer since it can melt things you never want to melt.(Those components are plastic and vinyl).
The DUAL WATER VALVE in the bottom back of the machine, needs replaced at the same time, since it's the cause of your problems.
As well, the line to the water outlet could be frozen, which means defrosting the freezer door completely.
Looking at a 12 hour minimum off time, with the machine unplugged.
Using a floor fan blowing into the freezer compartment will reduce that time to approx. 8 hours.

Icemaker problem


Good day,
with a small paper cup, pour water in the ice maker cavity to near full. make sure it's turned on, and close the freezer door and wait approx 3 to 4 hours. See if it dumps. (I've had new ones out of the box that never worked).
If the ice maker checks o.k. then it is one of two problems.
1. The fill tube that runs from the back of the ice maker to the outside rear of the machine, has become blocked with ice.
Remove ice maker, and inspect closely. If iced, defrost, but be carefull with heat. A lot of plastic and vinyl there that is easily ruined.
2. If that checks O.K., and you get water in the door, then the dual water valve in the bottom rear is bad, and needs replaced.

No ice from icemaker of Kenmore Elite model 106


I just resolved an issue with my kenmore elite side by side refrigerator icemaker (model 106).
It was expensive because I took the long road to fixing the unit myself.

My problem: No water going up to the freezer water dispenser into the icemaker but the water in front of the door working just fine.

-first thing i tried was the simplest. The Internet is clogged with this miracle fix of using a hair dryer to melt the frozen water line going to the dispenser output. This is highly unlikely for our model since the water line is protected within the refrigerator frame.

-2nd thing I replaced my water filter (thinking that there wasn't enough water pressure to trigger the solenoid valve. $40, and still no luck.

-3rd thing was I tested for voltage going to the solenoid. No voltage going to solenoid, so I wasted $30 for a new solenoid.....still no water.

-4th thing was I ordered a new IR sensor and receiver (since the reciever end is where the relay that sends the voltage to the solenoid to turn on and allow water to go up to the dispenser).
My IR sender and receiver appeared to be working flakey.
Installed, still no water. $58 BUCKS ON EBAY (EVERYWHERE ELSE $100+)

-I finally removed the freezer front little white door, I TURNED OFF THE FREEZER SWITCH SO NO VOLTAGE WAS PRESENT, removed the release latch underneath the freezer unit and disconnected, and removed the freezer unit to inspect it further.
When I removed the protective white cover that covers the mechanical wheel, I had a few parts come flying out of it. Turns out that the wheel accessories were damaged. THERE ARE NO REPAIRABLE PARTS ON THE FREEZER UNIT. I FOUND ONE ON EBAY FOR $39 BUCKS + $9 SHIPPING! $48 BUCKS, SWAPPED THE HARNESS AND BOTTOM COVER, AND IN 20 MINUTES, I WAS BACK IN BUSINESS. STARTED MAKING ICE IN ABOUT A HALF HOUR!!!!!

when in doubt, replace the freezer unit for $48 bucks! 7 out of 10 times it will fix your problems. All techs replace the IR set at the same time too which will set you back another $58 bucks.
Good luck! ;)

No water dispensing to the icemaker. Water does dispense through the door dispenser. KitchenAid ksbs25fkbl00


Unplug your refrigerator and leave the freezer door open for 2 hours (The food in the freezer will only partially thaw).

The line supplying the water to the ice maker has frozen...this will un-thaw it.
