Ice Maker line is not receiving water through the line. Water goes thro' to the water dispenser on the door for cold water, but
not to the water line leading to the ice maker. What is the problem?
Answer Hello Marilyn. 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
The ice mounds up where the tube comes into the freezer.
Answer Hello Angela. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the door chute 8201756 is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit.
My Whirlpool refrigerator has a horrible smell coming out of it. All food has been removed and nothing went bad. When taking off the back panel, I the same putrid smell is coming from where the water line goes into the water inlet valves. I was wondering if anyone else has this problem (or ideas of how to fix it) and if so how did you fix it.
Answer Hi Hank. The condenser coils and the cond. fan need to be cleaned. The drain pan might be full of dust/debris that have turned into mold. This will need to be cleaned well also. You can also take crumpled up newspaper and put it in the center of the cabinet and let it run for a few days. If you think it is a water issue, then you can change the water chute, this is part # 2209774. The water tubing kit is part # 4387492. Thank you.
