Question about Whirlpool 21.6 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator GT22DKXG
Appears that only part of the ice maker is filling up with water to make ice. Some water comes down into bucket and creates big block.

This is almost always due to a faulty shutoff valve. The valve is at the back, where the water line connects to the refrigerator. Turn off the water supply, remove the water line with a wrench. You should be able to take out the valve with a few screws and by removing one or two wiring clips and the plastic line on the other side leading to the fridge. A new one costs about $60 - $80 at a appliance parts store. Bring the old one with you, and the refrig. model number, and make sure the new one looks the same as the old.
The problem stems from the valve continuing to leak a bit of water to the icemaker after it fills the tray and shuts off. This trickle of water freezes and blocks the line, so matter how many times you defrost it, it will just happen again.

There are 2 clips that hold the Ice plus on. 1 top left, and 1 on the right side.
Slightly pull up on the front of each clip and remove the controller. most likely behind this you will find a gear that is broken and may fall out of the unit. As usual you can not buy just the gear. Contact Whirlpool for the replacement gear assembly.

It may be just the water control valve on back of refrigerator. Put tap water in ice maker and lower lever for on. After ice is made, does it drop to tray? At this time when empty is the time the control valve is asked for water. The problem could be in valve on back or the inside ice maker itself. If you can try a few test with me I will help you locate the problem. Let me know what you find as I go through this with you. Sea Breeze
