Is the ice maker turned on?  The on/off switch is located on the top right side of the freezer compartment.  The manual says that there is a sensor beam that passes from one freezer wall to the other to shut off ice making when the bin is full.  Check to make sure nothing Is blocking that signal beam and that the bin is correctly installed.

Does not make ice


Either the ice maker is not calling for water or the ice maker water valve is not working, there are many different types of water valves so its very dificult to tell you what to do without a model number or picture of the valve, but generaly speaking if you VERY CAREFULLY put 120V to a water valve it should open and alow water to flow, you can try this for the valve that has a water line going to the ice maker and see if it lets water go to the ice maker, sometimes there are two valves that must open, one main valve and then another for either the water dispensor or the ice maker. a better first test might be to test the water valve for resistance across the coil and compair it to another coil and see if its close-ish. also you can test some ice makers and see if they are putting 120V to the water valve by bypassing the bimetal and causing the ice maker to go into a cycle, but again a model number is required to know what kind of ice maker you have., even a picture would help

Water dispenser does not work. However, the ice maker does work so there is water availabe. Could this be a pump problem, if yes how do I replace.


It is not your pump, because despenser and ice maker both get water from the same pump.
Water despenser is activated by a small plunger when you press your water glass against it
to release the water. This is your problem, bad plunger.

No water flow to ice maker or water despenser...water lines are clear the filter is clear..could problem be water inlet valve ( dual valve controls water flow to ice maker and water despenser.


Its odd that both parts of the valve went bad at the same time. Personally sounds as if your water filter is clogged up and needs to be changed. I would do that first, before trying to change the water valve itself.

My ice maker is not getting water. The water despenser is o.k.---I did remove the water filter.


Is the freezer cold enough? Should be close to 10 degrees.
Is there water or ice in the ice mold? If not put water in it and see if it dumps the ice after it's frozen. If there is ice, lift the cut off arm and let it drop to see if it will start.
If it does dump the ice but don't refill with water.
ICE MAKER NOT GETTING WATER
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. It's on the back where the water supply comes in. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

A strainer before the inlet valve can also get stopped up restricting flow.

Water despenser


The water dispensing valve may not be functioning, if the valve buzzes or hums when the water dispenser is pressed the valve may be mechanically deficient, if there is no sound whatsoever the switch for the dispenser,the dispensing valve coil or its electrical connections may have failed.

Ice maker not workin


ok as far as the water in your door goes sounds like the micro switch is getting a little gummy and sticking this happens when people dump ice in sweet drinks and some splashes up locate the switch and spray a little wd 40 on it as to you ice it is on a separate valve as the water in the door so the water flow don't mean a lot in this case remove the front plastic cover on the icemaker and you will see a bunch of little holes make a jumper wire out #10 or 12 house wire strip about 1/4 inch off the ends an insert in the holes marked t&h this will start a test cycle make sure yuo hold the plastic insulation so you don't get bit if the ice maker starts cycleing remove the wire and watch for it to stop listen for the icemaker valve to open if the ice maker finishes and the valve didnt fill replace the water valves if the icemaker doesnt cycle and yuo may have to kinda twistm the jumper back and forth to get it to make contact depending on the gauge you used then replace the ice maker motor module if you hear the valve open and the ice maker doesnt fill check for a frozen ice fill tube that should do it
