Re: Whirlpool ED25TE side by side--ice maker
Check for an ice cube stuck in the teeth of the ice maker that is preventing it to cycle. If this is not the case and it has ice cubes in it then try removing them by hand or you might have to defrost the freezer to free up the ice maker.

FYI - Mine actually froze the water in the line.. had to remove the water filter, turn off the ice maker, pull the fridge away from the wall..remove the line from the fridge connection..laid it outside for a few hours until I could blow through it.. re-installed ..all ok..
What I found was the problem was that I had not changed the filter on a regular basis.Because of this the water flow to the ice maker was restricted.What this caused was the water inlet tube on the ice maker to freeze up.On my unit it is a black rubber tube about 11/4 long on the right side.You can see it if you know what you are looking for.If you squeeze it you can tell if it is froze or not.You can use a hair drier to thaw it out or squirt water up into the tube .It does not take very long..To make sure it is clear disconnect the tube on the back of the fridge and blow into it.If there is no restriction the tube is clear.After you have determined the tube is clear add water to the ice tray so the unit will make ice this will start the ice maker to cycle.Its making good ice now.
probably not tied in with each other, would change the fan and probably jump the water valve with 110 volts and see if you get water if not then change the water valve if so change the ice maker, whirlpoolpartssurplus.com
I had a Whirlpool Model GD5SHAXNS in which the icemaker quit working about the same time (3 years old). I had water out the dispenser, I found that it was the icemaker itself failed not calling for water to fill it. I replaced it with a icemaker on-line for about $100 and problem fixed. I have been told his is a common problem with the icemaker in this model ref.
Put some water in the ice maker and see if it will kick a batch out. If it does make a batch but does not make any more then replace the water valve. NOTE: the water valve is a dual purpose valve that supplys water in the door and supplys the ice maker. If the ice maker does not kick out a batch then something is wrong with the ice maker.One easy component to replace is the ice mold thermostat.
POSSIBLE YOU HAVE 2 SEPERATE WATER SOLENOIDS.
THE SOLENOID FOR THE ICE MACHINE HAS A STRAINER AND ORFICE JUST INSIDE THE INLET SIDE OF THE WATER CONNECTION. CAREFULLY REMOVE THE ASSEMBLY AND CLEAN-IT.
YOU CAN CHECK IF ICE MACHINE SOLENOID HAS POWER BY TAKING A METAL BUTTER KNIFE AND HOLDING IT JUST ABOVE THE COIL ... THE MAGNETIC FORCE SHOULD BE FELT TUGGING THE BLADE DOWN.
