Question about Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice Dispensing System
Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
When both the ice and water in door functions stop the problem is usually the door switch. If the door switch fails in the open position the light stays on when the door is closed and water and ice in door do not work. With the door open depress the door switch plunger to see if the comparment light goes off. If it stays on the door switch has failed. If it goes out.. hold the door plunger depressed and have someone try the water in the door. If the water in the door now works the door switch is not getting depressed enough to allow the water and ice in door to work during NORMAL operation. Again usually it requires door switch replacement to correct the problem. The door switch is a 3 terminal switch. One terminal is common, One terminal controls the light, and One terminal controls the water and ice in door functions. The switch retails for less than $10.00
You remove the switch by sliding a thin knife blade along one side of the switch to release the single locking tab. You can use a putty knife also.
Since you did not include a model number I can not help you with parts data.
There is more that can be done if the door switch is ok but I really need the model number to proceed from here. I will help you... Just respond with a COMPLETE model number.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
