Question about Whirlpool 21.0 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator with IceMagic Plus Ice Maker

1 Answer

Front of in door Icemaker door spring fell out!

There is a tension spring and small round plastic piece with stem and eyehole connector that fell out of the ice maker chute door assembly. Now the freezer is dumping cold air because the door is not sealed just floating in the chute. Ice just falls out on the floor. How do I reinstall this spring and looks like a delay switch? Some diagrams come close but the springs do not look the same, Whirlpool GS5SHAXSL01 model # Side by Side with IN Door Dispenser

Ice maker shutoff bar fell off


This arm is called a "bale". There should be a small, round opening on the backside of the front of the ice maker. Use a mirror to look behind the square control box of the icemaker and you should see the opening. It is impossible to see it from the front when the icemaker is installed in the unit.

"space compact icemaker" cover fell off. How to put it back?


To replace this part, locate the two holes at the front of the top base of the ice maker, going up into the freezer ceiling. Place the two half-round 'pegs' at the top of the missing cover (above the vent holes) into these holes, then press the cover back into place. The peg protruding from the back of the piece should go into the hole in the ice maker housing, and the prongs will catch on the ice maker when you snap it into place by brute force. I wasn't strong enough to push it back on with one hand, but a stronger person did it in seconds once I explained how it should fit.

It displays a message: dl and stops


1. Unplug washer.
2. Remove the outer portion of the door bellow. This is the gray rubber boot around the door. Feel around the edge of the door bellow where it attaches to the front of the washer. You will find a wire retaining hoop in the seam between the rubber and the front case. Follow this wire hoop to the bottom of the door bellow and you will find a tension spring. Carefully, stretch this spring apart and remove the wire hoop.
3. Pull the rubber bellow from the door facing on the front of the washer being careful not to rip or tear it. Once removed, fold the rubber backwards inside the drum so you can access behind the front panel. DO NOT remove the rubber bellow from the wash tub.
4. The door latch assembly is located behind the front panel of the washer on the right hand side. Locate and remove the three screws on the washer front that hold the door latch assembly in place. The whole assembly should come free from the washer front and be held by a plastic mounting bracket and several wire connectors.
5. Carefully remove the latch assembly from the plastic mounting bracket BEFORE attempting to unplug any wires. It makes it much easier to access if you do.
6. Unplug the wire connectors using care not to break any of the wires. You may want to write them down, but I believe they will only plug into their respective slots.
7. Remove the old door latch and install the new one in the reverse order of the steps I just presented to you. Plug the wires back in first, then place the whole assembly back into the plastic mounting bracket, and then reattach to the front of the washer.
8. Now, when you get the reinstalling the rubber door boot, you may want to get the assistance of a second pair of hands as it can be difficult sometimes to manipulate the wire retainer back into place. Carefully reattach the rubber bellow to the door facing on the front of the washer first.
9. Starting at the top of the door bellow at the 12 o'clock position begin inserting the wire hoop back into the groove. Work your way around with both hands to the 4 and 8 o'clock positions. (This is where you could use those second pair of hands). While holding a slight downward tension on the wire hoop to keep it in place, pull the tension spring apart enough to snap the remaining part of the hoop into place at the bottom. Once you've completed these steps make sure the door closes and latches properly. NEVER slam a door with an electronic latch. They can break easily.

Now plug the washer back in and test operate. NOTE: You can run diagnostics on these washers by referring to the tech sheet provided by the manufacturer. The tech sheet is located behind the lower panel under the door, or along the interior cabinet walls. Included, are instructions on how to run diagnostics and troubleshooting tips associated with the list of fault codes. It is recommended that this tech sheet remain inside the washer to prevent it from being lost.

Frigidare stuck on crushed ice.


I have a few ideas for you to try. On the bottom of the ice cube holder there is a spring loaded metal rod that runs from the front of the freezer to a little indentation in the back of the freezer. Inside this indentation there is a small plastic piece that can move up and down to rotate the metal rod. The position of this plastic piece is controlled by a solenoid which is controlled by the buttons on the front of the door for cube or crushed. Close all the doors and push the cube button. Open the freezer door and remove the entire ice cube tray. Reach to the back of the freezer and make sure the little plastic piece inside the indent will move up and down easily. You want it to be in its down position. Re-insert the ice cube tray. The metal rod should fit easily into the indent in the back of the fridge. Now close the door and see if you can get cubes. If this doesn't work I suspect the solenoid that moves the little plastic piece may need to be replaced.
