Question about Refrigerators
It looks like you have two problems,
1. do you hear a sound when you try to dispense ice?open the frzr dr and press in the light switch and then have some one else press for ice.you should be able to see and hear the auger turn inside your ice container.if turning but not dispensing ice, remove your container by pressing the blue button on the side.now go ahead and flush container w/hot water. then dry it and reinstall it. you might have store bought ice stuck in it.
if motor sounds like it's stuck and auger not turning, then replace motor part#

Both of those are controlled by a voltage signal sent to the back and rear near floor of the back of your refrigerator. The part is a water control valve. When you press the dispense water button the valve if not defective will open and allow water to travel through the bottom fresh food section water reservoir to the cup. When the ice maker dumps fresh cubes to the tray to store foe dispensing ice it also opens the valve for its side fore just enough time to refill the ice maker. Then the ice maker waits until it senses frozen ice and begins the cycle by heating elements below it to loosen the cubes to begin the cycle again. So get someone to unplug the side on pack and put the probes of a multimeter into each female side and press dispense, you should see 120 volts there. If not the dual water control valve needs replaced. Part Number 4389177
