Water leaks onto the floor every 2-3 days on the freezer side. Is this from the water filter or is there a washer that needs to be replaced?
Answer Hello Chet, please check your evaporator drain trough or the drain tube for a blockage. When the unit enters defrost it melts the frost build up on the evaporator and the water should run down the trough and tube to the drain pan at the bottom of the unit. If there is a blockage, the water could be running elsewhere. Hope this helps!
What is the model number for a replacement ice maker
Answer Hello Shane, please re-check your model number "et21pfefw00". I cannot find anything Whirlpool with "pfef" in the model. Thanks!
The ice maker stopped working altogether. I removed the ice maker from the freezer and I tried to turn the wheel on the front which turns the blades, but the blades would not turn at all. I removed the housing which is the function for the gear and the gear still can not be turned by hand. I am thinking I need to replace this part, IM #S 106 626633, am I correct in my amateur diagnosis? Thank you for your help.
Answer Sam, You may want to re install and test the ice maker again. Hopefully you didn't damage anything by accident. You'll need to get a short length of 14 guage insulated wire, and remove 1/2 inch of insulation from both ends of the wire. Tape the freezer door switch closed, insert one end of the jumper wire into the "T" and the other in the "H" openings, and hold it there until the main gear starts to rotate, then remove it, and allow the ice maker to advance through the cycle. Please supply a model number on your next post, it will help to properly assist you.
The dial on icemaker rotates back and forth and does not dump the ice. What do we do?
Answer Hello Carole,
The mold heater and module have both probably failed. The best fix for this is replacing the ice maker assembly4317943.
My model is not listed for this ice maker. What replacement ice maker do I use?
Answer Gen, according to your model number the replacement icemaker is part number 4317943. Thanks!
I installed a new ice maker. That went pretty easy: three screws and a wiring harness. I changed the water filter and purged the line for five minutes. Still no ice. Now what?
Answer Hello Martin,
If the unit never filled with water, I would change the water inlet valve W10408179. I would try forcing a cycle and see if it fills with water. (Force a cycle by using an insulated piece of wire to jump the 120Vac from T to H). If it does, you should take the freezer temperature to make sure the unit is achieving temperatures. The freezer should run between 0° and 10°F without dropping below 0°F. If it doesn't fill with water, the water inlet valve has failed or the fill tube is frozen up. If the fill tube is frozen up, the water inlet valve replacement will cure this issue. You will still have to thaw the fill tube out with a hair dryer.
I'm trying to fix this ice maker. Guess I will order another icemaker, part # AP4360346. I need to know if control module is included with part?
Answer Hello Martin! Yes, the icemaker assembly W10190965 includes the control module. However, it does not include the bail arm or cover these items must be used from the current icemaker. Thanks!
