Question about Whirlpool GS6SHEXNL Side by Side Refrigerator
We have a Whirlpool GS6SHESNQ00, about a year old. The icemaker stopped making ice - we have replaced the motor module, which seems to be working now. The water isn't filling up the tray. We checked the heating element and it looks like it's is "open", but not sure if that could be part of the problem. We just don't get any water to the icemaker. Could this be a solenoid issue? Help if you can, we would appreciate it. Also, is you know where we could get a schematic of this icemaker - we would be your very best friend :)
You either have a frozen water fill tube or bad water valve. The valve is located in the back of the refrigerator. There is a 1/4 inch tube going from the valve and up the back of the refrigerator to the ice maker fill tube. I would take the tube off at the valve and try blowing thru it. If you can, the valve is bad. If you can't, the fill tube is frozen. If frozen, squirt hot water into the fill tube where the ice maker is located. Hold a cup to catch the water. You will have to remove the ice maker in most cases to do this. Good luck, Mack

It sounds as tho you do have solenoid prob.but it could also be an ice over sit at your water inlet tube that is situated near icemaker.
