Question about Kenmore 5553 / 655532 / 55534 / 55539 Side by Side Refrigerator
If you're getting water in the tray the pump isn't your problem.
Where if you're not getting water fed into the tray before citing the pump. First check for a clogged or pinched line as well as where you tapped into your water line feed.
See unless your unit's freezer isn't refrigerating properly at a refrigerated temperature. There's no other reason why your unit wouldn't be producing ice from the feature.
That's regardless to anything else

It could be the water valve if the solenoid is sticking. You can check this by manualy pulling the arm down on the ice maker to force it to start a cycle and put your hand on the water valve when it should call for water. This is metered out by the ice maker to about 3 seconds. If ice maker fills up then you know the problem is with the ice maker.

SOURCE: Ice Maker not Getting Water
There are two solenoid-operated water valves - one for the water dispenser and one for the icemaker. They're located near the water connection at the back of the fridge. There is no pump; the water pressure sends water to the icemaker whenever this valve is opened by the icemaker controls. Your symptoms sound like the coil is burned out on the valve. You can check it by disconnecting the wires and checking for coil continuity with an ohmeter. If the coil is open, replace the valve. Both valves might be combined into one assembly, so be sure you test both coils. Of course it's also possible that the trouble is in the icemaker itself, but a failed intake valve is more likely.

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.
