You definitely have something wrong with the ice maker if the water has turned to ice Schmerold. And the IM is not harvesting. The way it works is the IM needs 28 degrees F to harvest. If the coils below in the condenser are dirty the IM won't try to harvest. The Ice Mold thermostat is mounted on the firewall of the Ice mold in its own little cubby whole. To access it you will need to remove the head. Then remove the shell separating the Ice mold from the heads housing. There you will find the ice mold thermostat. It's only function is to get it on. If the temperature is right in the freezer. To test this precious thermostat one needs only to stick it into a freezer and let it hang out for an hour or so. Then grab it and check it for continuity. If it is open it has failed and belongs in the file 13. It is easily replaced and inexpensive.
On your model, ice maker operation is controlled by an optical sensor mounted on both sides of the freezer liner. The usual failure of this model is a bad emitter board, located in one of these recesses. You may view the service instructions for checking this sensor.

Ok, I show parts that are available for that model, sounds like the control board is defective for your dispenser, or possibly the Ice maker control board. It also could be a break in the wiring or the control itself. Below is a break down for those parts, wiring and the control behind the push to dispense ice or water. Hope it is not that control because some places don't provide that part. Now if it's a connection problem that we can find, I will do mu best to help you solve this.Could you insure the model number is correct as this is very important? email@example.com

To All With This Same Problem ,
Remove the top freezer door hinge cover ( 1 screw holding it on ) , and disconnect the plug there . This will disconnect the power to the door dispensor .
Using a butter knife or small screwdriver , insert it in the bottom of the dispensor cover between the grill and the cover .
Push down and in wards , to force the bottom of the cover outward , being careful not to break the 2 or 3 built on plastic clips on the cover .
After the lower portion has been disconnected , lift the cover up to disconnect the top clips and then remove the plug on the cover .
The white piece on the dispensor now visible , is the bracket control .
The switch on the right side , is for water , the switch on the left side , is for ice . Usually , the ice switch , has a broken " spear " , which holds the switch in place . The whole bracket control , pt # 2180226 , will have to be replaced . Only 2 or 4 screws hold it on .
This part is easily replaceable by the consumer .
Just be careful when installing the switch , not to break the new " spears " and be sure to reinstall the plastic " spacers " in the same spot on the new bracket .
When reinstalling the dispensor cover , slip the top on first , and just lightly " pop " the bottom back in place .

Just had this issue - after checking all line connections, I pulled the ice maker feed water line from the back of the unit and found the tube was blocked with ice. Melted the ice with some hot water, and all is good once more. I would check for this before getting into the solinoid.

Check to see that the refrigerator has power and is working. Reset or replace the fuse or circuit breaker in the house if needed, especially if a power outage has recently occurred. Make sure the water valve is connected to the refrigerator and is fully turned on. Ensure that the ice maker is turned on. Some Whirlpool refrigerator models have a switch located above the ice bin; some models have an arm that should be raised up to turn the ice maker on. The arm is also located above the ice bin. Clear away any ice cubes that may have gotten jammed in the ice maker, bin or dispenser that may be preventing ice cubes from moving as expected in the system. Use a plastic utensil to clear away any obstructions. Contact an authorized service center for assistance if the above steps do not fix the issue.
Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.
