Icemaker not making ice. No water going to icemaker. I turn the icemaker on it seems to go through cycle, although no ice. I am getting water through drinking water outlet. Could one inlet valve be bad and one okay?? or is the icemaker no sending current to work inlet valve for icemaker. Barney
Answer Hello Barney. Make sure the freezer is between 0° and 5°. You need to check and see if there is power going to the water valve when the icemaker cycles. If so, replace the water valve on the unit. If not, or the icemaker does not cycle, you will need to replace the icemaker on the unit. Also, check and make sure the fill tube on the unit is not frozen and clogged. If so, replace the water valve and thaw out the fill tube. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
What size diameter are the inlets for the two hoses? One of my hoses cracked and separated completely and I was thinking of using a union to reconnect the two ends back together. The separation happened about 3" away from the union. Is the hose a 5/16 or 1/4 and would a union work to reconnect?
Answer Mark, There are two different sized water tubes, you didn't mention which tube is damaged so, the 1/4" tube is usually routed to the icemaker and would need the 2198677 tubing connector. The water tube to the filter/dispenser assembly is 5/16" tubing and will require the WR02X11330. Make sure the ends of the tubes are a clean straight cut and there are no burrs on the tubes. Slide the tubes into the collar(s) as far as possible to prevent leaks and you should be fine from then on.
I don't have no power going to the water inlet valve. I want to know why.

Water dispenser does not dispense water, freezer door is blistering immediately below the water dispenser.
Ice dispenser works fine.

Answer GE LinkinFreezerDoor,
This issue sounds like the dispenser tube may be frozen. To test you will want to remove the kickplate of the unit and disconnect the tubing at the bottom of the door. Make sure you have a towel for the water that will come out. Once disconnected set it for water and push the lever. If water comes from the tub coming from under the unit then the issue is a frozen water line. For this issue it would require the freezer door to be replaced as there is a void in the insulation and will certainly occur again if you are able to get it thawed out.
My Whirlpool's Imperial's water dispenser keeps dripping water. Is this caused by a faulty water inlet valve?
Answer Ed, if you have recently changed the water filter try purging the water line by dispensing at least one gallon of water continuously. Otherwise, the water valve, part number W10408179, will need to be replaced. Thanks.
