Ice maker in not working


A lot of times the reason the ice maker is not working is 1 of 2 things. First I would check the water filter if the fridge has one, and make sure it is new, or replace it if it has been over 3 months (depending on the fridge and filter, could last longer). If you replace the filter and the ice maker is still not working, be sure to check the water line going into the fridge, if it is a plastic line (soft to the touch) make sure to squeeze it ever so gently to see if water is flowing through the line properly. If so then, you may need to turn the water off to the fridge and disconnect the water line from the fridge to see if it is clogged, if so it could be clogged with calcium deposits, if not then the mechanism for the ice maker it's self could have gone out and needs replaced. This all depends as well on how old the fridge is. If the ice maker has a metal bar, be sure it is in the proper position to make ice, a lot of times they get broken and need replaced.

Ice not forming in ice tray


Hi - there are several problems that can cause this - but ultimately, if your freezer is keeping frozen foods frozen, the problem is lack of water flow.

Most automatic ice makers work on a timer. At a regular interval, if the ice maker arm is down to signal a "not full" ice bin, the heater on the bottom of the ice form turns on to break the bond between the ice and the mold. After a short time, the wiper linkage turns to allow the wipers push the individual cubes out of the mold and fall into the bin. After that, the solenoid on the water line is energized that will allow the water to flow to the ice maker to fill the mold, and then shuts off.

The water may pass through the filter inside your fridge (if equipped) and the filter may be clogged (if you can dispense water from your fridge and it works - this not likely to be the problem). Some fridges require a filter to be present - other will work without a filter - but none will work with a clogged (or frozen) filter. Make sure the fresh food compartment of the fridge is not freezing the filter.

Most of the ice maker functions are silent - except for the sounds of the ice dropping into the bin, and in some cases, the "snapping" or "clicking" of the water solenoid turning on and off (coupled with the sound of water running).

See if you can hear this happening. If you do, the problem could the either the flexible water line or the point of the water line attachment to the cold water pipe in the house. If you moved the fridge out for any reason, it is possible that the water line has been kinked or crushed when the fridge was moved back into position. If it has been undisturbed, it may be related to the valve that supplies water to the fridge. Sometimes, a clamp-on pipe piercing valve is used to connect the smaller fridge water line to the cold water pipe in the house. It is not unusual for these to give trouble after several years - particularly in areas with "hard" water. It may be worthwhile to replace this if it has been installed for some time.

Lastly, it may be the ice maker itself. It has heaters, switches and motors - any of which can fail and cause trouble. You could pour water into the the maker with a watering can or similar and let it make ice as normal. If ice is never dropped into the bin, then something on or cabling to the maker itself has failed and will likely require professional service or replacement as an assembly.

These should get you going and may pinpoint the issue - good luck!

Whirlpool ED25RF Does ice maker have a filter? My ice taste funny and sometimes its dirty


The ice maker doesn't have a filter , the problem could be the ice maker itself that the tray ,which is made out of aluminum is losing particles.Look at the conditions of the ice maker tray ,if you see like white spots replace the ice maker.

Water Filter


most whirlpools have the filter located in the bottom kickplate, right below the freezer door. turn counter-clockwise and toward you to remove. if it has never been removed before, they are hard to get out the first time.

Smelly Ice and water leaking into top shelf


Does water in door dispenser taste bad? If not, Try arm and hammer fridge deoderizer. It will help to absorb fridge odors which may be clinging to water molecules in ice maker tray. Ice maker tray is open to freezer area.Water is very medium to infiltrate with odors. Try this first

Ice maker is not getting water to make ice


The most likely cause is the green water solenoid behind the fridge. Take an ohm meter and test across the two terminals and it should NOT ohm out(beep). If it does not ohm out I would replace the P.C. Board kit, emitter & receiver icemaker control. You can buy the P. C. boards and a new water inlet valve kit with new quick connections at www.repairclinic.com or www.appliancepartspros.com Both sites are very helpful and most likely have these parts in stock.

If it has an ice maker, the motor may be going out, so to find out, isolate the issue. Although first disconnect for 24 hrs. so to melt any frost away from moving parts; I believe you already have that covered. If still an issue, first re-disconnecting the power source, going to the back, removing any covering, finding the power source for the ice/water mechanism (usually on the right side or opposite the compressor), regardless it can't be missed. Disconnect the ice maker, and if the noise is gone, there you go. Reorder and replace the ice maker motor; a common issue due to constant use.

Whirlpool icemaker not working


the refrigerator has a duel water valve, one for the ice-maker and one for the water dispenser. the valve that the ice-maker relies on may be bad, or it could be the ice-maker itself.
another thing that could cause it would be the temperatures in the freezer. the ice-maker will not call for water until it reaches under 15 degrees.
