Major Appliances/Whirlpool Frig ice selection problem


I have an older Whirlpool model ET22DQRBW00 frig.  When I go to selecting regular ice cubes all I get is crushed ice. In other words when I move the lever from crushed to cubes I still get crushed. It seems to be stuck in the crushed ice mode. Any ideas and is there a fix?  Thanks.

Check the crusher solenoid in the freezer section and see if you can more it up and down.....In other words if you remove the ice bin and look on the bottom of the bucket/ will see a rod.  This rod slides into a slot in the rear of your freezer.  There is a solenoid that moves up and down to change from crushed to cubed.  LEt us know what you find.  

Waiting to hear from you,
