1) Check that the water filter is not plugged.
2) Listen if you hear the water solenoid energize as the fingers rotate around and come to a stop. If not, then you could have a bad water valve. If you do, check that something is not blocking the water flow through the valve.
The fill switch on the ice maker may be bad as well, which would prevent you hearing the water solenoid from energizing. It is located inside of the front cover of the ice maker.

Let me know what you find and I will help further.

Icemaker quit working but water side works still.


Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. 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. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.
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.

Water stopped flowing after changing filter


Check the ice maker fill tube coming through the back of the fridge. It may be frozen shut. If so defrost it with a hair dryer.

Whirlpool side by side refrigerator, model # ED25PQ


Under the right side of the fridge in the back there is a dual valve for water and ice. Try changing it out, most likely the ice side is not working. Make sure you unplug the unit first

Side by side refrigerator


The ice maker is not producing ice or not enough ice

 Refrigerator connected to a water supply and the supply
shutoff valve turned on?
Connect refrigerator to water
supply and turn water shutoff valve fully open.
 Kink in the water source line? A kink in the line can reduce
water flow. Straighten the water source line.
 Ice maker turned on? Make sure wire shutoff arm or switch
(depending on model) is in the ON position.
 New installation? Wait 24 hours after ice maker installation
for ice production to begin. Wait 72 hours for full ice
production.
 Large amount of ice recently removed? Allow 24 hours for
ice maker to produce more ice.
 Ice cube jammed in the ice maker ejector arm?
Remove ice from the ejector arm with a plastic utensil.
 Reverse osmosis water filtration system connected to
your cold water supply?
This can decrease water pressure

OR
The water dispenser will not operate properly

 Freezer door closed completely? Close the door firmly. If it
does not close completely, see “The doors will not close
completely.”
 Refrigerator connected to a water supply and the supply
shutoff valve turned on?
Connect refrigerator to water
supply and turn water shutoff valve fully open.
 Is the water pressure at least 30 psi? The water pressure to
the home determines the flow from the dispenser. See “Water
Supply Requirements.”
 Kink in the home water source line? Straighten the water
source line.
 New installation? Flush and fill the water system.
 Water filter installed on the refrigerator? The filter may be
clogged or incorrectly installed.
 Is a reverse osmosis water filtration system connected to
your cold water supply?

GOOD LUCK TO YOU!!! LET ME KNOW IF THIS SOLVED YOUR PROBLEM

Kitchenaid Superba Ice Maker quit


Make sure your manual doesn't say something about inline filters, or a float that might be sticking in off position. Depending on how ice is made sometimes they have a float to where water rises so hight then gets shut off to freeze and form the ice.
