First, make sure you have water going into the refrigerator. Then check the one in two out solenoid controlled water valve (first place the water line connects). If you put a voltmeter on the solenoid controller, you should see a voltage at the solenoid. If you do, then replace the solenoid controlled water valve, if not then follow the electrical line back and see where you lose the signal.
I would not call a Technician out because it will cost you too much money that you can put aside for a good refrigerator that does not have all of the electronic gadgets that keep it running GE runs behind LG with their great looks. But they both have costly failures when it come to quality electronic controls. I really hate to be honest. Wait that is what you want right? The truth is you can buy a better quality refrigerator by purchasing one that has no electronic control boards. Simple defrost timers will last 3 times longer and the pain of paying a technician to come switch your motherboard out and leave in 15 minutes with $500.00 dollars is just too much guilt for me to carry to lie
to you, Good Luck, Sea Breeze
Have your change your water filter lately?
If not try that, as it may be starting to block up a little.
Another problem could be the water inlet valve(Ice Side) situated at bottom of fridge, that could be starting to wear (Can interchange with water side inlet valve). Yes there are 2- 1 for ice and 1 for water
The Whirlpools Ice Michine set up is very easy, and runs by a mechanical system, they can be tested (Use a qualified tech).
Cheers hope this helps
Either your water control valve is leaking while off or ice has formed in the fill tube for the ice maker causing the water to spew in directions other than the ice maker or both. A new water control valve may be needed. Part number WR57X10050 Let me know if this helps. Sea Breeze

You may have a problem with the computer control board in the ice maker. Try this. Turn off the icemaker for about 2 minutes.
Turn on the ice maker and press the clear button. Press and hold this button for 12 seconds to get it to force extract. This will confirm that the motors will work and push the ice cubes out. Afterwards, let it run by itself. If it still doesn't make ice, you will need to replace the icemaker.
Hello. Yes, that is the correct position for the icemaker feeler arm. The updated icemaker has a longer feeler arm that hangs down a little more (thereby shutting off sooner when the ice piles up not so high).
Your water leak onto your food is from water spilling out of the front left corner of the ice tray during fill. This has also been updated with a plastic lip that keeps the water from sloshing out when filling up.
The photo shows that your ice tray appears to be unlevel and drooping in the front left corner. This happens with flex tray icemakers over time. The icetray does not fully flex back to its level posiiton. I do not feel you need to replace the entire icemaker. Repalcing just the ice tray should fix your issue.
