Well your savvy, so, let's do it backwards.
Pull the power plug off of the water valve, and insert both prongs from a vom meter set at 150 Ac or higher.
Cycle the ice maker. You have time, fill is at the end of the cycle.
Just before the end of the cycle you should see 120 volts for approx. 7 seconds. Don't blink.
If you do get power, replace the valve. Jumping them will not always do the trick.
If no luck, then it has to be an ice maker issue. I've installed more than one that never worked from the time of installation.
P.S. You said the water line was not frozen. It's the fill tube that runs from the back of the machine into the ice maker that freezes and is a common problem.
If you can, remove the plastic tube from the bottom of the ice maker (it's the 1/4" inch smaller of the two if you have water in the door). You should be able to blow thru it freely. If not it's iced, problem with a filter ect.
This should be done first.
Thanks for using FixYa.

SOURCE: whirlpool ice maker ,no harvest?
Hi, The optics almost never go in those unit's, the problem is in the icemaker module itself. If you can jump it thru a fill and then no advancing thru to harvest afterward ( provided your freezer is below freezing ) it's the module. You can either replace just the head/module or the entire icemaker. For the difference of only about $50 I always replace the complete assembly. The most common one being about $150 complete, # 2198597 and this should be the one for your fridge since you mentioned the optic component's. Hope that help's. Thanks for choosing "fixya" for your fridge inquiry. Please take a moment and rate this solution if indeed it solves your problem. Thanks again and good luck. Macmarkus :)
