I have a Whirlpool ED22PWAXN11 and the ice maker quit working. There is still water to the door. We have replaced the fill silonoid located at the bottom back panel. Still it does not work. We have checked for clogs in the line and they are clear. Any suggestions?

My ice maker quit, was replaced with a new one, it filled and dumped one time, filled again, didn't dump, was thawed out then didn't fill at all. Water still dispenses from the door just fine.


If the unit is new return it for another one - if there is water in the tray and it is not dumping, either the unit is not working properly or the internal freezer temperature is not going down low enough for the unit to work. Has to go down to at least 10 degrees for the tray thermostat to start the ice dump/making cycle.

Ice maker quit working on side by side whirlpool refrigerator


Good day,
It is important that the temperature is at or very near normal. Anything above 10 degrees will slow if not stop ice production. That is controlled by a thermostat embedded in the ice maker.
If the temperature is normal then proceed with this trouble shooting guide. It should solve your problem.

First step is to take a small paper cup of water and fill the cavity until it is near full. With the ice maker turned on, close freezer door and wait 3 hours to see if it harvests. If not, the ice maker is bad, and must be replaced. If the cubes harvest then.......
Three possibilities.
1. The water supply from the house is not delivering water to the water valve. Shut off the house at the meter, disconnect the line going to the water valve, and with the line pointed into a bucket, have someone turn the valve back on for a 15 second count. The water should come out smartly. If not, the line and it's fittings will have to be replaced.
2. The fill tube from the back of the machine that feeds water into the back of the ice maker is frozen up. You will have to remove the ice maker to visually inspect that tube. If blocked, it needs to be defrosted, but use caution. Too much heat too fast will start to melt plastic and vinyl parts you don't want melted.
If this is the case, then once cleaned out, you will have to change the water valve located in the back bottom rear of the machine because it is leaking during the off cycle.
3. If everything checks O.K. up to this point, you will have to purchase and install a new water valve, and install it.
P.S. Under very rare occasions the electric circuity in the ice maker will fail to send a signal to the water valve. Although rare, it can happen, in which case the best option is to replace the ice maker and water valve.

The water control valve for the ice maker side is your most likely reason. If filling ice maker with tap water and allowing to freeze. If it dumps then the water control should fill. if not the valve is not working. Sea Breeze

Whirlpool indoor ice maker not making ice


Could not locate your model number. However, Check fill tube for icemaker inside the freezer. Iced solid? replace water valve. No ice in fill tube? Get correct model number and resubmit your request.

Ice maker is not filling w water. water does come


The ice maker likely needs replaced however it could also be the fill valve. If you have the ability to locate the valve at the end of the fill hose (usually bottom right when looking at the back of the fridge) it will have 2 solonoids with electical connectors on them. Swap the connectors and press the water dispenser paddle. This should fill the icemaker. If it does, the valve is fine and the icemaker is bad.

I had a Whirlpool Model GD5SHAXNS in which the icemaker quit working about the same time (3 years old). I had water out the dispenser, I found that it was the icemaker itself failed not calling for water to fill it. I replaced it with a icemaker on-line for about $100 and problem fixed. I have been told his is a common problem with the icemaker in this model ref.
