The paddle you push the glass against operates a micro switch that operates the solenoid to start the auger that delivers the ice to the output chute. It could be electrical (most likely) or the auger motor is no longer operating

Your question is worded in a way that I might not be interpreting it correctly. I am guessing that it is making ice but not dispensing,or going into your glass when you push the lever, right?

So when you push the ice dispenser lever do you hear a "click" like you do when you push the water lever? Push them slowly and listen.

If no "click" is heard then it is most likely the bracket that holds the dispenser switches. It is made of plastic and very prone to breaking over time especially if children are using it. Part# is WP2180226 and be aware that this is under live voltage so if you are not mechanical then do not attempt yourself and please call a pro to fix.

If you hear a "click" then can you hear the motor turning inside? If yes then it could be something as simple as a block of ice stuck in the bucket preventing the ice from coming out. The owners manual recommends to dump the ice to avoid this roughly every two weeks but most people never do.

TFX22CR GE refrigerator TFX22CRXFWW does Not dispense ice.

I had this problem with a similar refrigerator. The problem was the slide switch burns itself especially if you slide it from ice to water while holding the glass in to get ice and water into your glass. Better to slide it to ice, press the glass in to get ice, release the glass to stop the ice, slide the switch to water, then press the glass in again to get water. I "fixed" mine by removing the control panel and soldering some of the connections on the slide switch together so that we now have no crushed ice function, but the ice cubes work again. You can also replace the circuit board in the control panel to restore it to like-new operation. I could not find a place to order just the slide switch.

Not sure if this is the same problem with your unit, but sounds the same.

Ice maker not dumping ice

Make sure the freezer is at least 17 degrees or colder (colder is better). If you have a square cover on the end of the ice maker see if you can pull it off and press on the gear face (don't turn just press). That may clean the electrical contact springs and get it working again. Basically if ya got water, 17 degrees or colder you will get ice. Other than that the ice maker motor module is likely bad (broken gear, etc.). Pretty common.
