In most cases you can easily solve this problem.
step one would be to make sure your freezer is getting cold enough. If you have icecream in your freezer is it frozen solid or is it soft. Most icemakers cycle around 0 degrees and if your freezer is not getting to 0 then it will not cycle and it will not make ice.
Step two would be to make sure you icemake is cycling. To do this simply lift the little shut off arm on your icemaker and wait about an hour then go back to the icemaker and drop the arm down. The icemaker should start going through a cycle. You should notice the arm slowly begin to raise and the ice dispencer fingers will begin to turn. Then you will hear it call for water. You may hear a humm.
If the freezer is cold enough and the icemaker is cycling that only leaves the inlet valve. replace the valve and enjoy the ice.
If the freezer is cold enought and the icemaker does not cycle, then you have a bad icemaker. Simply replace the icemaker and viola.
Third if the freezer is not cold enought 0 defrees. Then you may have a defrost problem. In this case post more info and I will be happy to help. Good luck firstname.lastname@example.org

check the fan that transfers the cold air from the freezer to the fridge. thats where it comes from if you didn't know that. also check the the fan on the condenser at the bottom of the fridge. it should be blowing hot air off the condenser to facilitate the elimination of the heat from the condensing unit, just like your a/c does on the houe.

The end caps come off by placing your hand over the TOP of the console and lifting each one from the back and pulling forward. If you can't get them to come off by hand, try placing a screwdriver in the top groove in the back and give it a twist to pope the cap free. Once the caps are removed follow these steps:
1. Once the console has been released it will lift up and fold back over the back of the washer in its resting position. Use care not to stress the small plastic hinges that hold it on. They can break easily.
2. Under the console will be two large brass colored clips. Take a large flat blade screwdriver and place it in the groove of the clip on the washer top. With the screwdriver firmly in the groove, push away from you towards the back of the washer. This will release the clips.
3. Disconnect the lid switch connector plug. This is the white colored plug on the washer top under the console.
4. Remove the washer casing. Open the lid of the washer. Using one hand, grip under the front rim of the washer opening. Do not grab the wash tub, just the casing. Tilt the washer case from the back first towards you, slide forward slightly, and then lift up. The entire case comes off exposing the wash tub and components.
If you are replacing the lid switch, you will now have full access to remove it from the under the washer casing.
To reinstall the washer case, follow these steps:
1. With the lid of the washer open, grasp the case under front rim and place it on the washer frame. While looking down through the washer lid opening, make sure the front lip of the case is placed UNDER the washer frame and rocked back onto the frame to ensure that the small cleats on the frame fit into the slotted grooves on the washer case base. If you do not get the case seated correctly it will rattle and vibrate while the washer is in operation.
2. Make sure the back of the washer fits into the washer casing on each side by leaning over the front of the washer and grasping the back panel and pull towards you. Reinsert the brass clips by placing the clips into the slot on the back of the washer first, and then forcefully push then down into the opening on top of the washer.
3. REINSTALL LID SWITCH CONNECTOR. It is easy to forget. If you do not reconnect it, the washer will not work correctly.
4. Reinstall console.
If you have any questions about this repair, please post back and let me know. You can view some excellent exploded view diagrams of your washer at searspartsdirect.com for assistance in locating parts if needed. I hope this helps you.

It is possible that the switch at the dispenser switch is defective but not as likely as the water control valve=> W10408179 found on the rear of your refrigerator. The coil may be burned out or weaking and not allowing water to flow when you press your cup to dispense. Have someone ohm both coils and the resistance should be close to the same. Applying 120 volts to the water dispenser side of the dual valve should cause water to flow. They just sometimes burn out and yes the dispenser components wearout too.Large View=> 10656356500_Dispenser_Parts To remove the Face of the dispenser follow the instructions in red at bottom of photo=> HERE Use care and mark and remember were the screws go when you replace the facade. If you have any other questions I will be here, Thanks, Sea Breeze
