whirlpool gold gs6nbexrs01, problems with ice maker, etc
« on: January 09, 2014, 10:47:00 AM »

So, I volunteered to try to fix my wife's friends ice maker.  It was no longer dispensing ice. (no problem making ice, but no dispensing and no apparent motor function)

 After me, no improvement on the dispensing, but now the display panel and all the buttons are dead.  I think I may have made a mistake as when I was trying to reattach the connectors, I messed up and tried to attach one to the wrong place so I'm guessing I may have shorted the board out??  I am waiting on a volt meter to try to test the dispensing motor...

Any help is greatly appreciated!

I have the same problem.  One day, two weeks ago the front panel of the ice/water dispenser went dead so I could not dispense ice or water anymore.  Then a couple of days later I also noticed the automatic ice maker was not making ice.  I assume they both happened at the same time but it just took me a few days to notice the ice bucket was not refilling.   

Did you ever find out how to fix this?  I had a repair person come from GeekSquad. The first repair person said the electronic circuit board went out and ordered me a new one.  When the new one arrived a different GeekSquad repair person came to install it and said no, that was not the problem at all.  He has called a number of sources and can't seem to get any help on this issue.  He said he thinks I need to order a new front control unit which cost about $350 but he is not sure that will fix it either.
