If the refrigerator is the one that came with the house then it should be ready to go after about 6 to 8 hours. Lower the arm inside the ice maker to turn on most types. If there is a switch that should be turned on also. If you still have problem get the model number to me. You can find it near the floor and behind the fresh food compartment door frame. Sears uses a number like

My ice cube maker is not working. there is water to it but it is not making ice cubes

You say you have water, but does that mean you have water to the refrigerator from the house? Did you check for water into the ice tray? If it is not filling with water then it is most likely the water inlet valve.

If you follow the water line from your house connection it will lead you to the water inlet valve. One input and two outputs. One runs to the water dispenser and the other to your ice maker. It is solenoid controled and will often fail on just one output side. So if you don't have water into the ice tray the is your most likely failure item.

How to repair an ice maker in whirlpool side by side refrigerator?

For most Whirlpool brand ice makers is is cheaper to replace the core module part number=> 2198597 Ice Maker Assembly Reason being the individual parts add up to more than the cost of all those parts together. Now if interested you can request a Whirlpool Ice Troubleshooting Service Manual by filling out the capsha=> HERE Reason I don't place the manual's here because Whirlpool ask me not to, but I will be glad to send you one. The manual is the solution but the most complete module is the cheapest route. Below is how it is explained a little simpler, Thanks, Sea Breeze
