I have a whirlpool refrig that I just got from National Grid and it has the option to add an icemaker. Is this the kit that I would need or would I need more?
The model number listed is not coming up as a valid model. While this icemaker 4317943 should work in your unit it is not a complete kit with water valve, tubing and bucket. The most likely icemaker kit for your unit may be part number 8560 but cannot confirm this without the correct model number.
My ice maker began to leak water into the bucket creating an ice berg. My hubby's solution was to just grind the chunks up into the feed to glasses. Now the bottom has come out of the bucket. Do I need to order anything [water related] other than the Whirlpool icemaker kit? I am planning to replace it myself.
Answer Hello Kthy,
You will need to check the water pressure to the water valve behind the unit. If it is too low the valve will not close properly and cause the complaint you listed. If the water pressure is about 40 PSI or higher, the water valve is suspect and should be replaced. I would order part number 1129316 for the model you listed.
How do you get the two screws off , I cannot see them.
Answer Hello Allen. You have to use a 1/4" nut driver and your hands and feel them to remove them from the unit.
I have a refrigerator model ED20DFXEW00. On the front of the freezer door, how do I get the trim off that is around the ice and water dispensers?
Answer Hello Richard,
Be sure the power is discontinued to the unit before beginning since there is 120Vac behind this panel. Remove the overflow grille and put one knee against the freezer door while pulling down and toward yourself on the bottom of the dispense cover. This will snap the bottom loose from the door face. The dispense cover will now lift off the upper retainer tabs. The only thing holding it to the door at this point will be the wiring.
I've been told to jumper between pin t and h on the ice maker circuit board. I did and got no response. What is the next test step.
When you put a jumper in between T and H and got no response from the icemaker would indicate that the icemaker motor has failed and the module would need to be replace. The module part number is W10190935.
The ice has a moldy smell and it tastes funny. Is there a filter that we can use with this model and does it already have a filter? If so where do we find it?
Answer Hello Lucy,
This unit has no water filter on board. You could add one before the water reaches the refrigerator between it and the home water supply. You will need to order an in-line water filter TJ60461N and a 1/4 inch water line 12 inch TJ9SSIM1.
