SOURCE: water dispenser in fridge

Possible problems could a bad water valve (dual valve), bad micro switch which is activated by pressing the button for water to come out. On some models the bracket that holds the micro switch could be broken not allowing the button to activate.

SOURCE: removing panel on side by side fridge...

It comes off just like you are doing- it snaps on, so it needs to pop off at those spots first. Please leave feedback.

SOURCE: Particles in ice cubes

Most new water/ice systems have break-in procedures in the manual, including flush a couple gallons of water through the water dispenser and disposing the first 24hrs of ice.

Are the particles present in the filtered water before adding ice? If so, you can probably assume the contamination is from the water tank so you should flush several gallons of water through the system to get rid. If the particles are present after adding ice, try pulling out the ice bin and dumping the ice.

SOURCE: ice machine isn't working

Two things come to mind.

First, the water valve at the bottom rear of the refrigerator may have failed. You didn't mention if there is a water dispenser and whether or not this is still working. This valve pumps water to the icemaker and water dispenser when the control unit of the icemaker calls for water. Also, there could be a blockage in the line which brings the water to the icemaker.

The other possibility is that the part of the icemaker controls which calls for water from the valve has failed. If this has happened, it would likely be more cost effective to replace the icemaker unit.

Refrigerator whirpool is only working after tapping on the front control system panel? which part has to be replaced?

Whirlpool side by side fridges with the control panel across the fridge section have thermostats that will fail. Tapping on that control panel will cause the fridge to work temporarily. You will need to replace the refrigerator thermostat if you see small black specks under the thermostat.

Ice and Water not dispensing. Light button not working

http://www.repairclinic.com/0100_1.asp
There's an ice- or water-dispensing problem The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs.

Where is the water filter and how do i change it

Filter should be located on the bak of the fridge or in the back of the fridge. My guess is that it's the water fill solonoid that isn't working or the ice level control is thinking the bin is full. I would look for the ice level sensor and give it a cleaning or replace it

My fridge (whirpool) side by side its not making ice, the water dispenser its working fine, just replaced the filter in the fridge and also by the wall , any ideas/

Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking same part needs replaced.The water valve at the bottom rear of fridge
First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

it sounds like your defrost drian is clogged remove rear panel inside freezer and you should see a hole at the bottom below the coils. it could be covered in ice if it is use a hair dryer to melt the ice and then flush hot water thru the drain hole with a turkey baster some whirpools have a removable floor panel also in the freezer you can tell if it does you will see a screw in each front corner then lift out panel and clear any ice that has build up

Water filter/ice system does not work. Water goes into the fridge but no ice is made and no water comes out of the front door dispenser

No water and no ice sounds like a bad water valve. It is located behind the panel where the water line enters the fridg.
