Sounds like the screw shaft is stuck or iced over. Also check for jammed ice and missing gear teeth. Parts can be found online at small appliance repair sites. Instructions are usually online as well.

What usually happens on these is the bracket that holds the switches for the ice and water dispenser breaks and that is typically on the ice side.

The best way to check is to open the door and push the water dispenser lever with your hand. As you push it in and gradually get farther you will hear a "click". That is the switch.

Now do the same with the ice side and if you do not hear that click then the bracket is broken. Easy fix but everything back there is live so make sure you are confident ,and safe around power!

Unplug it! Part# is WP2180226

The red light may or may not be on this model. The first generation of ice maker optics had the spot for it but whirlpool never hooked it up. The second generation blinked when the door was open but it was for the tech to determine if they could "see the other side". This light has no function for ice dispensing.

No water coming from water dispenser.


It is possible the water control valve for that dispenser has failed and will not open. This happens a lot for those and the ice maker valves. All you need is the model number for your refrigerator and that will look like this for Kenmore. 213.564897 for example. and I will help you find the correct part number. Sea Breeze

Push the lever to dispense ice and listen for a small click sound,(the micro switch). If you hear a click you will have to determine if there is a broken wire to the dispenser motor or if the motor itself is defective, This will not be a visual diagnosis unless you fine a broken wire in the hinge area.

Kenmore Elite HE3 Washer fabric dispenser not working


This is usually just as simple as adjusting the syphone up and down. releveling your machine or cleaning the dispenser itself. when the water enters the dispenser gravity syphones the water out . nothing really machanical about it. unless the water is not filling up the cup enough to go above the max line. you can test it by putting water in the dispenser above the max line and adjusting the syphone cap up and down.this should grab a suction.

I resolved the problem on my Kenmore Elite model 106.55616400 by removing the drip tray, taking out two screws that hold the panel, and disconnecting and reconnecting the wires from the panel to the board. Unplugging the refrigerator did not work.

Kenmore elite (106.53606202) ice maker will not dispense ice


When you push the ice dispensing lever, you should be able to hear the micro-switch clicking. If no click, the switch is faulty. The auger motor which is activated by the lever could also be faulty. This is the motor that causes the auger in the ice bucket to rotate one way for crushed ice and the other way for cubes. The auger could also be jammed. Try switching between crushed and cubes to unjam the auger. Empty the ice bucket and start again.

Water may not be getting to icemaker call them back out if it dont work soon thats what warrantys for :0)
