    Default Whirlpool icemaker #ed5lhaxmq10

    Model Number: ED5LHAXMQ10
    Brand: Whirlpool

    Hi,
    My Icemaker froze up and I defrosted it with a hair dryer. After that it flooded the freezer and floor. I shut off the water and removed it and completley defrosted it and reinstalled it. Now it is not making ice and there is no water flowing into the unit. Help

    Thanks in advance,

    Rob

    did you turn the water back on?? If you did then my guess is the ice maker is bad. You can replace the whole ice maker or just the module.
    "ed5lhaxmq10" Ice Maker or Components Parts from RepairClinic.com

    They show 2 modules so you will have to call them and ask them which one you need.

    Also Rob, I would make sure your black rubber fill tube that puts water in it from the freezer ceiling is not clogged with ice, sometimes you can't see the ice blockage up in there, use a turkey baster and shoot hot water in there, then get something to run up in that fill tube, a small Phillips screwdriver perhaps, or
    I use a evaporator cooler spider snake:

    They are used basically in Arizona to clean out the water pump tubes that run to the cooler pads.

    I don't know if they would sell them in your area, but if you go to your local hardware store, they should have something similar to run up your black rubber fill tube.

    Remove the ice maker first to get better access into that black rubber fill tube.

    If that black rubber fill tube is clear, then I'd test the water inlet valve in the back of your refrigerator.

    Your ice maker uses this module, but its best to just replace the ice maker assembly:
    Manufacturer part number 8201515 is RepairClinic item number 961550
