Sound like the auger motor behind the ice bin is not turning.
Pull the ice bin out and you will see to metal fingers with bolt in the center can you turn this clockwise by hand?
If not the motor is likely frozen you can pull auger assembly out by removing 3-4 screws unplug the harness then take to counter and warm up motor with your hair dryer until you can turn motor by hand. then reinstall

Does the ice bin have any ice in it? If not has the ice maker arm been raised up to the stop position? If so lower it, this will start the ice maker again, and after several hours the ice bin will have enough ice to be dispensed from the door.
I had this same issue with my GE refrigerator and figured out it is a common problem with these units. The water line freezes up near the dispenser panel. Fortunately, GE has an inexpensive solution, a water line heater, that fixes the problem with little work. Check out my blog post on my ge refrigerator water dispenser not working for complete details.
Most of the time the bin has been removed and not put back in properly. When this happens ice blocks the drive motor. Remove the bin and turn the auger by hand make sure it will turn and is not jammed. Now with the bin out push the light button in that turns the light out and have someone push the button for ice while the door is still open the motor should turn in the back make sure thereis no ice blocking it. If it turns nothing is wrong with the motor. The clicking sound is usually the motor jammed by ice or the auger not engaged on the motor. hope this helps good luck
It may be a good Idea to remove the ice bin, clean and dry ant the same time with bin removed see if while pushing the door light switch and the dispense ice control if the auger fork in the rear of the ice bin that normally turns the auger will rotate. Sometimes ice or water collects in the bin and locks the motor from turning and sometimes the motors go bad. Tell me your results, Thanks, Sea Breeze
The ice cubes may have melted somewhat and are sticking to the bottom of the ice bin. Take the ice bin out and dump the ice. Wash and DRY the bin. Put it back in and wait for more ice to make,then try your dispenser. Let us know the outcome.
Pull the ice bucket out, then hold in on the door light switches and while you push a glass into the button for ice (may require two people). Ice dispenser and auger will only work, when you push for ice, when the freezer door is closed, so by holding the light switch(s) in the off position with door open you can simulate door being closed. If you can push the button and see the auger drive turn (with ice bucket out) then check to see if you have some ice stuck between the blades on the bucket, if the auger motor doesn't turn, it may be "ice frozen". Common problem. Remove motor, let sit on counter for about three hours and then reinstall, if it then works then check for water dripping from the fill tube, where the water comes into freezer for the ice maker, and see if it is dripping onto auger motor.
If you put auger motor back in and it still won't turn then more and likely you need an auger motor.
Water dispenser is a simple touch switch in door energizing a solenoid water valve behind ventilation grate above refrigerator. Water tube runs down into and ends at ice dispenser chute. Should hear solenoid click at top of fridge when activate water touch switch. Can unhook discharge side of solenoid valve temporarily to prove water output. If water dispenser tube acts blocked it could be frozen where it ends-look up the hole at the bottom of refrigerator control buttons.
Ice maker is totally different system. No clicking when push ice button but ice in bulk tray may mean the simplest of malfunctions: Ice bin not pushed in the last half inch if ice auger not lined up with drive pegs. There are hidden switches behind ice bin that need to be engaged or nothing will happen in the ice maker: no auger noise, no clicking, no new ice making. Ice bin will be flush with sheet metal if it is in the right spot. Also plastic juice rack won't hang properly if ice bin not pushed in all the way.
I have a GE Profile PSW26P Stainless Steel Side by Side refrigerator that makes plenty of ice but will not dipense when the lever is pushed. The dispenser makes not sound when engaged. What do you think the problem is.
The arm on my ice maker somehow dislodged itself even though we do not put food on or near the ice bin.
Every time I thought I placed the metal rod into the proper hole. FInally I took a hand mirror and realized there is another hole further back that the arm was supposed to go into. It works fine now. Hope this helps you too.
As these ice makers cycle there is an arm that moves up while the ice is being freed from the ice maker. After the ice is dumped into the dispenser bin the arm continues a downward motion. If it encounters ice in the downward travel it shuts the ice maker off. If this arm is locked in the full up position the ice maker is manually shut off. Check this arm and make sure it is not locked in the up position.
