Thanks for contacting ManageMyLife.com. I understand how frustrating it is having trouble with the ice dispenser not working properly on the refrigerator. We are here to help. I suspect you have either a defective motor or there is a addition problem. You may have something not together properly. Therefore, I provide you the motor replacement instructions on the image below. I do not think the controller board is the problem. I hope this helps.

To order refrigerator parts, please visit SearsPartsDirect.com with the model number.

Same problem here but have the Whirlpool side by side GS6NVEXSL01. Same motor and control board parts by Whirlpool. I take the motor out turn it by hand back to original position and reinstall it, it will work for a few times and then jam again. Last thing I did was replace the motor and the dispenser control board at the same time and it lasted 2 days and same problem. The connector, support, and door all seem fine- could something be off just a bit to cause this to happen or could it be the other conrol board (fountain control board)? Any ideas. Tearing out my hair ;-) Thanks!

Eric, This is very strange. Changing the motor should have corrected the problem. Is there any frost or ice causing the problem. Also is the heater working on the door flap. That is what I suspect is causing the motor problem.

A:

No. Everything else is working fine. There is not a heater on the door flap. Just installed new flapper, support, connector, and the 4th new motor last night and we'll see if it lasts longer than a few days. Do you know if the fountain control board has anything to do with the door? Thanks!

Eric, I located a diagnostic sheet for the dispenser. Copy it on to the computer so you can rotate it around. The test will show any electrical dispenser problems you may not be aware of.

I posted the original question. Since then the door motor has started to cooperate. I'm not sure why this was. I should say the previous responses to this question were generally poor. The first repsonse was that I needed to reread the instuctions. The second was that it was frost or the door heater(?). Eric ended up installing 4 motors to get one that worked. The diagnostic sheet might be of some help, but fortunately I didn't have to go that far. I'll let you know if there are other problems with my unit.

Q:

Whirlpool Side by Side Refrigerator will not cool refrigerated section, but the freezer works. How can I fix the problem? GS6NVEXSL01

A:

Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com. I regret to hear that you are having issues with your fridge and do understand your frustration. Glad to help out. Im looking at your model number GS6NVEXSL01. From what you are describing it seems like the air flow fan that pushes air from the freezer to the fresh side may have failed. it is possible that the coils have ice on them and sometimes letting the fridge defrost for a few hours will help that. I recommend having the fan motor number 6 in the air flow parts.

Fan motor pn 2315549

Q:

How do you remove the drip pan on a Whirlpool model GS6NVEXSL01 side by side refrigerator.

A:

Drip pans are not easialy changed and other than adding a little bleach doesn't require much service but if it's cracked and leaking then access is needed.

There are two directions you can approach the drip pan and the first is to remove the toe panel. This should give you a view of the drip pan behind the water filter. One way to access the pan is to remove the water filter as shown in the image below.

The other way to access the pan would be by removing the rear component section but the front should be easier.

I hope this information helps but you can submit another question with any additional details for further assistance.
