You have two sides to the water control valve so look inside your ice maker and see if after the last ice harvest your ice maker refilled with water. If half full or empty try filling the ice maker with tap water up to the top of the the ice maker. If the ice maker dumps the ice after the water freezes then does not refill with water this will point to the WR57X10051 Dual Water Inlet Valve If the ice maker does nothing once filled with tap water will point to the WR30X10093 Ice Maker Assembly and will be better to repace. I will be here should you have more questions, Thanks Sea Breeze
have two sides to the water control valve. One side is for the water coming from
fountain and the second side is to refill your ice maker after each cycle of
dumping ice into the ice bin. The freezer should be a 5 degrees or below for
the ice maker to function properly. If the ice maker is empty then fill with
tap water up to top edge of the ice maker and allow to freeze. If after the
water freezes and dumps the ice into the ice bin the ice maker does not refill
I would recommend replacing part=> 67006009 Dual Water Control
Valve or here=> 67006009 Dual Water Control Valve If the ice maker has old ice inside and does not want to dump itself it will be considered defective and the ice maker core moduel will need be replaced=> W10190972 Ice Maker Assembly
Is the freezer cold enough? Should be close to 10 degrees. Is there water or ice in the ice mold? If not put water in it and see if it dumps the ice after it’s frozen. If there is ice, lift the cut off arm and let it drop to see if it will start. If it does dump the ice but don’t refill with water. ICE MAKER DRIP
ICE MAKER NOT GETTING WATER
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. It’s on the back where the water supply comes in. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.
The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.
Most times that will be the water control valve on the rear of refrigerator and most times they come as a pair or dual one side for water dispenser and other side for the ice maker. You can test to see if the ice maker is defective by turning switch on and fill with tap water. When it freezes and dumps but no water refills the ice maker then the valve for the ice maker side is defective and will need to be replaced as a pair. If you fill ice maker with water and it freezes and then does not dump then most likely the ice maker is defective.Thnks Sea Breeze
Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If it freezes and dumps , then check the fill tube going to the ice maker , to see if it is frozen up inside . If it is , replace the water valve behind the refrig , where the wall water line connects to on the refrig . If the ice maker dumps the cubes , but does not refill with water , then the water valve is bad . If the ice maker does not dump the cubes , then replace the ice maker .
It’s more likely that your 61005626 Dual Outlet water control valve has become defective on the side that turns the water on for the ice maker. Sometimes the ice maker is the reason for this problem. The ice maker has a temperature thermostat that sometimes goes bad and will not tell the water control valve to come on after dumping the ice and the end of its cycle. The part number for the temperature thermostat is 627985 you can test the ice maker to see if the thermostat is bad by filling it with tap water and allowing the water to freeze. If after freezing the ice maker cycles and dumps the ice but does not refill with water then the water control valve needs to be replaced. Try that test and let me know what you find, Thanks, Sea Breeze

I know this is late but I will tell you that most times the water control valve on the rear of refrigerator is the reason for the ice maker not to refill. Yours uses a part number 61005626 dual water control. One side for dispenser and the other side for the ice maker. You may test the ice maker to insure that it works by filling with tap water. Let freeze and if it dumps the then ice maker will try to refill after each cycle. If the water control valve works it will refill. Let me know if you still need assistance. Thank You, Sea Breeze
