Question about Whirlpool 21.6 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator GT22DKXG

Open Question

Ice maker is pouring water down into freezer instead of ice maker unit.

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.

SOURCE: Whirlpool refrigerator will not make ice

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.

SOURCE: ice maker flooded top freezer compartment

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

JSI-26 icemaker leaking water


You're ice maker is located on the left hand side of the freezer, if I'm correct.
Look to the back of the freezer slightly above the ice maker and you will see what they call the fill tube. Chances are ice has formed inside and when the ice maker goes to fill water sprays instead of flows out. In some models you can take the fill tube out from the back by removing two screws that hold it in, located at the upper right side if your behind it, and some you may have to pull out from inside.

I have a Maytag fridge model # PSB2151GRW without the ice maker , there is a steady build up of ice on the bottom shelf of the freezer and a puddle of water on the floor ...


Ok so here comes the fun part. Unplug the frig! Two people due this much faster. Remove all food and shelves from freezer. Get ya some bath towels place them on the floor and some on the bottom of the freezer. Take 2 coffee cups and heat them for 3 minutes. Remove them and remember they are hot! Pour a cup of hot water where the ice is and let the towel soak up any water. Now fill that up and heat for 2 minutes now. Pour the other cup on the ice and keep rotating until the ice is gone you will see the drain hole which is going to have ice down that tube so keep pouring hot water until the water drains into the drain pan below. If you can't clear the drain tube use compressed air or a turkey baster can help out too. Wipe down the inside of freezer walls to eliminate the condensation now your ready to party... Don't forget to plug the unit back in the outlet!

Hi, I have a GE TFX24E refrigerator. The ice maker is not filling with water. I replaced teh water valve with no joy. If I pour a cup of water into the dispenser the ice maker will freeze and harvest the ice. Any ideas? Is there a replaceable water fill sensor?

Cindy, it’s either the water inlet valve that fills your ice maker or the ice maker itself that is bad. The ice maker itself controls the valve. It should come on for about 7 seconds to fill the tray. The valves do fail but not as often as ice makers fail. Its also possible that the fill tube to the ice maker is blocked with frozen water but since it made one tray that is unlikely. If you know someone that knows how to test the valve it would eliminate the decision of replacing the ice maker or the valve. Otherwise I would recommend changing the ice maker first. Hope this helps.

The ice maker on my refrigerator has stopped making ice. Water is still flowing but the tray doesn't fill and the whole mechanism seems not to function.


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If the ice maker dumps the frozen cubes , but doesn't refill with water , you should replace the water inlet valve , behind the refrig , where the wall water line connects to . If the Ice maker does not eject the frozen cubes , replace the ice maker .
Also , check the ice maker fill tube , from the back wall inside the freezer , to the ice maker fill cup , to see if it's frozen . If so , you will need to remove it , and clean the ice out . This would be caused by a " seeping " bad water valve also .
Check the coils under the refrig , to make sure they are clean of dust , lint , pet hair , etc , as this will raise the freezer temp above 5 degrees , which is the temperature which the ice maker needs to operate properly .

Ice maker


check the fill cup on the back of the ice maker for an obstruction of frozen ice, it the fill cup is frozen over then the water entering the ice maker will cascade over the frozen ice down into the freezer

if frozen melt it with a hair dryer then it will be ok
