Ice maker dispenser door

I don't know if I will describe this problem correctly; The black rubber door that opens to dispense ice when thh lever is compressed by a glass is not closing on it's own. If I "tap" on it (while it's staying open) , it will close.

WD 40 on the spring, works great. Springs just get dirty and need a little tlc. Make sure to wipe it all off though because the ice you use comes from there!Debbie

Why does ice dispenser stick?


I dont know what brand you have. But there is a springlever to return the lever to closed posision. Eather the return spring/mechanism is broken. Or has become loose from the fastnerclips holding it in place. I have also seen that ice is the reason for this. Iceing around the very top of the lever.

LG Freezer ice maker makes ice but wont dispense


There is a mechanical flap (trap door) that should open to allow ice that is being pushed by the auger in the bottom of the bin to fall out. Possibly the solenoid that opens the door does not work, or you just have an obstruction (piece of ice) preventing the door from opening far enough to allow the ice to pass through. Here is some helpful information and instructions.

Your question is worded in a way that I might not be interpreting it correctly. I am guessing that it is making ice but not dispensing,or going into your glass when you push the lever, right?

So when you push the ice dispenser lever do you hear a "click" like you do when you push the water lever? Push them slowly and listen.

If no "click" is heard then it is most likely the bracket that holds the dispenser switches. It is made of plastic and very prone to breaking over time especially if children are using it. Part# is WP2180226 and be aware that this is under live voltage so if you are not mechanical then do not attempt yourself and please call a pro to fix.

If you hear a "click" then can you hear the motor turning inside? If yes then it could be something as simple as a block of ice stuck in the bucket preventing the ice from coming out. The owners manual recommends to dump the ice to avoid this roughly every two weeks but most people never do.

Whirlpool Gold Side By Side Ice Dispenser Problems


Instead of what you think the sound is, try and see what is happening when you actuate the ice lever. open freezer door, depress the door light switch, or tape it closed. now actuate the ice dispenser lever, does the flapping door open, that which opens to allow ice from bucket into your glass? Now look at the bucket itself, do you see the gears rotating? remove the bucket from the door, and repeat, do you see the auger shaft rotating?

Either of these are a complex repair, one I would not recommend DIYers to try on their own, for they require taking the door apart, and if not done right, your door may not close properly. Normally I have no problem advising a repair, but there are some i dont, this icemaker system, and compressors.

Ice machine makes ice,does not dispense ice


Is it making any noise at all when you press the dispenser? If not check the switch on the dispenser on the front of the door, the actuator may be broke or stuck. The only way to see this is to take it apart, you will see levers and springs, push the dispenser lever and check that the switch is making contact. If you here noise when you press the dispenser like a relay clicking you may have a bad auger motor. Is the ice tray pushed all the way in? And check the freezer door light switch, that is a safety so you cant operate the ice with the door open, if the bulb is out replace it, some models are wired to read through the bulb (dont know why) Please let me know if this helps you out.

The ice maker works fine but we can no longer dispense ice from the door. No sound, nothing. Water dispenser works fine though.


There is a micro switch behind the panel above the dispenser lever. It's the switch that the leaver presses on when you push a glass into it to fill with water. Pop the panel off and you will see the little black switch I'm refering to.
