Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators
The ice maker timer is replaceable. Only a couple of screws hold the ice maker in the freezer, take it out and see if you can remove the timer for replacement. If you like to tinker, take it apart to see the pitiful connections, maybe you can fix it.

Charles, these models have a habit of the inlet tube freezing over. Make sure the black tube feeding the trough is clear. You may want to disconnect it from the back and see if you can blow through it. I use hot water in a baster to clear them all the time. Another thing is to check the optics. When opening the freezer door the red optic light on the right should flash 2x with a pause repeatedly. When you close the left hand emitter flapper the light should stay on. If it does this your optics are good. Because of these optics the new ice-maker has to be jumped started into a cycle. Once started you can monitor the fill. Catriver..post back.

I need the entire model # from the sticker inside the fridge section. My guess is this is the model that has a diode in the wiring harness that directs power to the valves and has gone bad letting power go to both valves. I would look and see if you also have water going into the icemaker when you press for water out of the dispenser. If there is no diode then the water valve is bad. I need the model # so I can look at a wiring diagram. You can look at the wiring to the water valve and see if it has a diode. It is black block and has two wires in one end and one out the other. If so the diode only can be bought and spliced in. Let me know so I can help.

There is an opening next to the auger that dispenses the ice. In there there is a lever that must move up and down. It actually seats the metal rod on the bottom of the ice maker and controls cube or crushed. Make sure the lever is down (cube position) when you return the basket to the freezer. I had to hold it down while I slid the rod into the opening. Viola! Cubes again.
check it out! Thanks to Jake!

The fill tube is probably frozen. Its in the roof of the freezer. turn off the freezer and heat the roof of the freezer with a hair dryer, being careful not to get it too hot,and it should thaw and work again. If you can put the food elsewhere for a day, just turning it off with the door open should work also.
