Re: no ice on whirlpool refrigerator
First of all you need make sure that your freezer is freezing enough. Sometimes everything will seem to be freezing ok, but it won’t be cold enough to make the icemaker work. The best way is to squeeze your ice cream, if you have any that is.
Then you need to make sure that the ice level sensing arm is in the down/on position.
If all of this checks out ok, then you need to make sure that nobody turned off the water supply that is sometimes located under the kitchen sink. Also make sure that the ice bucket is positioned properly so as to trigger the ice bucket sensing switch.
If all of this checks out ok, let me know and I can guide you through an icemaker diagnosis by forcing it into a harvest mode.

Is the freezer cold enough? Should be close to 10 degrees. Is there water or ice in the ice mold? If not put water in it and see if it dumps the ice after it's frozen. If there is ice, lift the cut off arm and let it drop to see if it will start. If it does dump the ice but don't refill with water. ICE MAKER NOT GETTING WATER Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. It's on the back where the water supply comes in. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.
The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.
A strainer before the inlet valve can also get stopped up restricting flow.
not necicarily, you might first try turning the freezer temp lower. also, set the cube thickness lower (control knob on the side of the ice maker if so equipped) both of these will speed up the icemaker some.
is there water in the ice trays?if not try pushing the test button normally underneath the unit. possibly it will initiate a reset and start working. sometimes a limit is not activated when it should be.
