Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators
After having changed the filter check if water is flowing into the ice maker. If not, check the solenoid valve(water inlet), which it is responsible for!
Next check if the compressor is coming on after setting the thermostat is set and the door closed. If compressor is running, then check if the radiator(coils/vanes) are getting hot or not. If not, there exists the possibility of leakage of refrigerant gas!. Get it filled and adequately sealed.
If the compressor does not switch on at all(For the icemaker) then the thermostat has malfunctioned. Also check the fuses for the compressor!
Hope these preliminary check helps identify the fault. If any warning light/LED lights up, do post it as a comment...........sodeep

· It may be turned off. Look for the wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If the wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. If so, try one of these: If your ice maker has a small red plastic lever, lower it to lower the wire. If there's no plastic lever, simply lower the wire. In either case, the ice maker should begin producing ice again.
· Also make sure that the temperature is 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.
· When was the last time the filter was changed? Most side-by-side filters are recommended to be change approximately every 6-9 months depending on your water usage and frequency. The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice or have a clogged water filter. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts!
· Also replace the water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, if necessary. The ice maker head assembly may have broken parts. Look to see if the gears are broken. Check to see if the small plastic arms that rest against the ice rake are broken. If the ice maker head assembly is modular and you've found broken parts, you can just replace it.
If any of these suggestions prove to be infective, connect with a professional to accurately pinpoint any potentially more serious issues.
