Question about Whirlpool GS 6 SHEXNT Side by Side Refrigerator
How do I remove the door with the icemaker and water dispenser..? I found the manual online and it lists nothing about removing the doors.
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.

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.
