    Default Whirlpool side by side fridge/freezer stopped making ice

    I have a Whirlpool fridge model GS5SHGXKS00 Stainless Steel and the ice maker stopped making ice. The lever is down and no water comes into the ice maker and arm that pushes ice out does not move. Also the water that comes out of the dispenser taste horrible even after changing filter cartridge. Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    Here's a good starting point link:

    Check to make sure your ice maker fill tube in the back of your ice maker is not clogged with ice, preventing the water to go in the ice maker.

    You may need an external water filter that connects in-line with your water supply line tubing that connects to your refrigerator to help with improving the taste.

    Jake,

    The tube behind the tube is not frozen but I do notice that there is no water coming from the tube that feeds into the icemaker. Any suggestions? FYI...the water dispenser portion works.

    Thanks!

    It sounds like your water inlet valve is bad.

    Here is a new one for your model:
