For Whirlpool Circulation Pump and Motor Assembly (Part Number: AP3083251)

My icemaker has been working great and we just recently 1 month ago used some nickle free cleaning solution which cleaned the unit. Just the last couple of days the unit has really become quite loud when the circulation pump is pumping water of over the freezing plate. It stops the noise when it stops pumping then starts up again when circulating the water. It still makes ice but very loud. I tried running the ice maker through the cleaning cycle and it got quieter, so am I needing a new circulation pump or do I need to run another solution through system. Some advice would be much appreciated. Thanks

ANSWER Brian, This issue would be caused by a bad circulation pump that would need to be replaced.

ANSWER Hello Brian, The motor (AP3083251) is in need of replacement when it is loud. It will extend the life of the pump to use the nickel safe cleaner in it three or four times a year.
