SOURCE: when icemaker is filling water comes out door dispenser

I need the entire model # from the sticker inside the fridge section. My guess is this is the model that has a diode in the wiring harness that directs power to the valves and has gone bad letting power go to both valves. I would look and see if you also have water going into the icemaker when you press for water out of the dispenser. If there is no diode then the water valve is bad. I need the model # so I can look at a wiring diagram. You can look at the wiring to the water valve and see if it has a diode. It is black block and has two wires in one end and one out the other. If so the diode only can be bought and spliced in. Let me know so I can help.

Check your water valve. Most likely it is leaking by the seal on the icemaker side of the valve so that it is getting a slight trickle of water all the time to the fill tube. This will freeze in the tube much like an icecicle is formed. This is the most common cause. Low water pressure and mineral deposits inside the tube can cause it also, but it usually will take longer than a few days for the problem to reappear.
The dispenser housing and parts on your fridge are replacable and show to still be available.
You can go to sears.com, click on parts, enter your model number, and see parts diagrams and lists for your fridge.
This link should go directly to the parts site.

Post back and let me know about the water valve.
Thanks/Mike

SOURCE: 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.

Water dispenser not working


!!BE CAREFUL!! High Voltage.
Try applying power to the solenoid for the water tap. Should be two of them one for the ice maker and one for the water dispenser. They will usually be mounted in the rear bottom on the other side of where the water supply line is connected. 25269512-pjjowy2zt3xf3430cawieg0f-2-0.jpg
Example ^^. If it triggers put a meter on it to see if it energizes when you press the water dispense button.

The water isnt getting thru to the icemaker, i have used a hairdryer on the water valve and still nothing , i even changed out the water valve but alas no water is being pumped thru to the icemaker, what...


Hello,

Does water dispense through the dispenser ok in the door dispenser??

If yes wate r dispenses through the door ok the problem is going to be with the icemaker itself and its not sending power to the water valve when its supposed to fill so it could make the ice

If water doesnt dispense through the door check that water pressure into valve is sufficent..even if water does dispense what seems to be ok check first that thier is good water pressure into the valve before replacing icemaker

Whirlpool icemaker microswitch location


If the icemaker is still in the refrig ,(easily removed with 1 screw ) pour about 2/3 cup of water into it . Also check the black fill hose which is above the icemaker fill cup , to see if it is frozen closed . If the icemaker dumps the cubes , and doesn't refill with water , replace the water inlet valve behind the refrig . If it doesnt dump the ice , replace the icemaker . My parts site is down , or I would give you part numbers for the water inlet valve and the complete icemaker .

The laser light should flash 2 times , pause , flash 2 times etc , if working correctly . If the laser light is not on , then the icemaker is in the harvest mode . If it stays off , icemaker is bad . If you close the flap on the left side of the freezer , the light should go off , until you release the flap . If these factors are ok , then the optics are ok .

Icemaker not working, but water dispenser is


Water valve has separate coils for water to door and to icemaker. If icemaker is cycling the valve is likely the problem.

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.

Whirlpool icemaker


Your unit has infered sensors on the frezzer left and right walls. There is a diagnostic test sheet brown in color in your kick plate.All you have to do is open frezzer door look on the right sensor it should blink twice followed by a 1-2 sec delay,if that is good press in flapper door on right sensor do not block path of infered beam you will not see a beam its invisable.Once you hold in flapper on right sensor the led should be solid.If solid optics are good if not solid led replace optic sensors

The icemaker stop working on my Whirlpool side by side frig


If there are ice cubes setting in the icemake waiting to be dumped then the icemaker is bad. If the icemake is dry then the water valve is bad. You have one water valve with two solenoids. One works water in the door and the other sends water to the icemaker.

Ice maker jambed-now no water


The ice maker must be re-primed with water to sense frozen ice in the tray, dump, and refill. Use a cup or glass to manually pour the water into the tray just below the top of the blades. It should freeze, dump, and refill.
