I have a Whirlpool Side-by-Side model GD5SHAXLQ01. Currently my ice maker fills up with water, freezes, but never dumps the ice. I pulled it out, cleaned it up and put it back in, but it is still doing the same thing. I was thinking it would be easier/quicker to just replace the whole ice maker instead of just guessing which part might be broken. Also the ice mold is rather gross (lining is missing in some parts), so I would like to replace that as well anyway. I am having trouble figuring out the part number for the entire ice maker. Is ap4360346 the one I need for my model (picture looks right, but I am not sure if that is the correct one)?
ANSWER Hello Matt,
The part number for the complete icemaker assembly is 2198597. You may also want to check to make sure that your emitter board is good. When you open freezer door, on the right side there is the icemaker shut off. On this panel there should be a light flashing. When you close the flapper on the left wall without blocking the opening then you should have a solid red light on the right panel. If it continues to flash then the emitter W10757851 is bad and would need to be replaced. When you initially open the door and if there is no light then push the flapper and the light switch and see if the light is flashing. If not then you have a bad board as well and would need to be replaced.
