Whirlpool Gold Series Refrigerator:
Man Date: 10/04
Ok, I first reported this issue in a thread that was similar to my issue, but now my problem has evolved.
My water in the door works but my icemaker stopped making ice. The tray won’t fill. I replaced the inlet valve, still no ice.
I have not replaced the icemaker yet. Why? Because now my door ice dispenser stopped working. I was buying bagged ice (small soft pellets) and going to use ice trays until I could afford the new ice maker. It did dispense ice for a couple of weeks after the icemaker stopped working. It still makes the noise of the motor turning, the gearing in the door turns and the little flap opens up to dispense the ice. However, none of the bucket mechanisms turn. I have taken it out and defrosted it to no avail. It’s like the gear in the door is not engaging the gear in the bottom of the ice bucket.
I was going to check the water lines (for frozen spots) and/or replace the icemaker but now I get the feeling I have bigger issues. I thought I would check in here before I went any further. Ideas?
