    Default whirlpool gold ice maker leaking

    Hi Jake:
    You have probably already answered this a thousand times, but my ice maker on my WP Gold is leaking. It seems to be leaking from the front of the ice maker...dripping down the front of the unit. My model number is GD5YHAXNL02. One other thing the maker is doing is that one of cube slots consistently gets an ice cube stuck which ends up blocking the return of the "paddles" I think is what you call them. Then the unit won't make ice until you clear the stuck piece of ice. Appreciate your help.

    Tks, Paul

    No Paul, it won't.

    Here's the instructions TO change the ice maker assembly:

    1. Remove the bucket from the door to get some room.

    2. Put a piece of tape on the sensor flapper to hold it down so you won't damage it while removing the ice maker.

    3. Remove the ice maker service cover door by spreading the two hinge fingers apart away from the center and the door should lift out of the slot.

    4. Remove the screw in the right rear bottom side of the ice maker.

    5. After removing the screw that cover should lift up from the rear and just work it out from the rear and you see the electrical harness.

    6. On the left track the should be a tab toward the bottom which you need to push up.

    7. Push up tab and start working the ice maker towards you pulling it out of the track.

    8. Careful with the electrical harness in the back as you're pulling out.

    9. Disconnect the electrical plug by lifting the clip on the plug.

    10. Remove the side cover on the side module by pulling off.

    11. Remove the bottom shield by removing the 3 screws on the bottom.

    12. To install reverse the order as it came out.

    Let us know how it goes.
