Why doesn't my ice maker dump the ice out into the ice bin?

several reasons. 1) the ice level sensor bar is pushed up. 2) the motor may have accumulated ice inside it causing it to stop turning. 3) Ice tray thermostat may be bad not heating the tray just prior to dumping.

Kenmore WR30X0318 Ice Maker Stopped Making Ice

The ice maker uses a internal thermostat that starts the cycle of dropping the ice and refilling with tap water. If your water control valve works filling the ice maker then the problem is the ice maker itself that will need replaced. Unfortuantly the ice maker you have has no rebuildable parts and will need to be replace with a=> WR30X10093 Ice Maker Assembly

Or here=> WR30X10093 Ice Maker Let me know if you have questions, Thanks Sea Breeze

The ice maker has stopped making ice. The red light is flashing (in the freezer. Part ot technician?

Hi, The blinking red light is just a sensor that shuts down the ice maker when the door is open so that it will not dump. This should have no effect on why the ice maker is not working unless the little door that blocks the beam does not return when the door is shut again...
Here is a tip that I wrote about the reasons why ice makers do not work.

Icemaker not working- red light flashes constantly

The red light should flash twice , pause then flash twice constantly . If you close the flap on the left side , then the light should go off . This shows the optics (ice maker cut off ) are good .

Check the black tube ( fill tube ) , which puts water into the ice maker , to see if it is iced inside . If so , then the water valve behind the refrig is bad . It seeps into the tube and freezes , blocking the water flow .

Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If it freezes and dumps , then the water valve needs replaced . If it doesn't dump , and stays frozen in the ice maker , replace the ice maker . Also , make sure the coils under the front of the refrig are clean , as this will cause warmer temp in the freezer and the ice maker needs 5 degrees to operate .

Ice maker jambed-now no water

The ice maker must be re-primed with water to sense frozen ice in the tray, dump, and refill. Use a cup or glass to manually pour the water into the tray just below the top of the blades. It should freeze, dump, and refill.
