Whirlpool ice maker not working
Problems with the ice maker in a Whirlpool refrigerator: My Whirlpool refrigerator’s ice machine has stopped working. When the ice maker stops creating ice, what causes it to do so? Use this troubleshooting guide to discover common ice maker difficulties so you can fix, repair, or replace your Whirlpool ice maker.
The following steps will help you troubleshoot your Whirlpool ice maker:
1. Is the ice maker switched OFF?
2. Has the water filter been changed?
3. Is the ice maker blocked with ice?
4. Has the water system been fully flushed after replacing the water filter?
5. Have you checked the water supply line?
Is your ice machine turned off?
Check to see whether the ice machine is on. A little ON/OFF switch is featured on the ice maker in some versions. It’s possible that it was turned off by accident. Verify that the switch is turned on. Please continue reading if the ice maker is still not working.
Is it true that the water filter has been replaced?
Have you replaced the water filter recently? The ice maker will not create ice cubes if the refrigerator water filter is placed incorrectly. If you’ve just replaced the water filter, double-check that it’s correctly installed and connected. (HINT: If the rubber seal between the water filter and the filter housing is not installed properly, this is a typical problem.) A blocked refrigerator water filter that has been in the refrigerator for more than 6 months might be creating ice maker issues. Remove the old water filter and replace it with a new one. Allow several hours for the refrigerator/freezer to start generating ice once the new water filter is fitted. Please continue reading if the ice maker is still not working.(Whirlpool ice maker not working)
Is the ice machine full of ice?
When ice builds up in the ice maker, it might cause it to clog and stop producing ice. Check the ice maker’s ejector arm. Ice can be used to block the ejector arm, preventing ice from being created or dumped. If any ice accumulation is discovered, remove the ice that is causing the issue. Check for any additional ice blockages in the ice maker and remove all ice to allow appropriate ice production. Please continue reading if the ice maker is still not working.
Has the water system been completely cleansed since the water filter was replaced?
The water pipes must be cleansed once a new water filter is installed. The “no ice” problem might be caused by air trapped in the lines. Dripping water from the dispenser and smaller or hollow ice cubes can also be caused by air in the water lines.
Here’s how to clean the water lines in your refrigerator: Simply dispense water from the water dispenser for 5 seconds to flush the water lines on your refrigerator after replacing the water filter. Repeat for a few minutes, pausing for 5 seconds each time. This will remove air from the water system and provide water to the ice maker, allowing it to generate ice cubes. Please continue reading if the ice maker is still not working.
Have you double-checked the water line?
Your refrigerator’s water and ice dispensers are supplied via the water supply line. Ascertain that the water supply line is firmly linked to the cold water source. Check that the water shutdown valve is turned on. If the water is switched on but the ice maker still doesn’t function, look for any bends or kinks in the water pipes on the back of the refrigerator. If there are any kinks in the water lines, straighten them out. To avoid leaks, repair any water pipes that are broken.
HINT – When reinstalling the refrigerator, be careful not to bend or kink the water line, since this will prevent the ice maker from receiving water. If the ice maker is still not working, you may need to replace it. Your Whirlpool ice maker is listed below.
