Question about Whirlpool 25.4 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator w/Thru-the-Door Ice & Water - Satina Stainless-Look
If the ice maker isn't producing. Follow this guide. It should solve your problem.
First step is to take a small paper cup of water and fill the cavity until it is near full. With the ice maker turned on, close freezer door and wait 3 hours to see if it harvests. If not, the ice maker is bad, and must be replaced. If the cubes harvest then.......
1. The water supply from the house is not delivering water to the water valve. Shut off the house at the meter, disconnect the line going to the water valve, and with the line pointed into a bucket, have someone turn the valve back on for a 15 second count. The water should come out smartly. If not, the line and it's fittings will have to be replaced.
2. The fill tube from the back of the machine that feeds water into the back of the ice maker is frozen up. You will have to remove the ice maker to visually inspect that tube. If blocked, it needs to be defrosted, but use caution. Too much heat too fast will start to melt plastic and vinyl parts you don't want melted.
If this is the case, then once cleaned out, you will have to change the water valve located in the back bottom rear of the machine because it is leaking during the off cycle.
3. If everything checks O.K. up to this point, you will have to purchase and install a new water valve, and install it.
P.S. Under very rare occasions the electric circuity in the ice maker will fail to send a signal to the water valve. Although rare, it can happen, in which case the best option is to replace the ice maker and water valve.

SOURCE: Ice maker does not work at all.
On these machines their is a thermostat that tells the ice maker that it is cool enough to turn on rotate and turn the waterflow on.Their are 2 different types of machines.Some machines pull cool air from the top of the machine downward in between the back of the machine and the wall and then out the bottom of the machine or even worse some machines pull cool air from the bottom of the machine upward in between the wall and the back of the machine and then out the top of the machine.The thermostate is either located on the bottom of the machine or on the back of the machine.You should clean all the dust bunnys and debrie from the back and bottom of the machine (make it look new).This adds to the airflow also sometimes when installing the machine people pull off the cardboard from the back of the machine this is usually at the bottom of the machine.If this has happened just cover it with some cardboard and some duck tape.You should be able to put a 4x4 inbetween the back of the machine and the wall.Do not stack or limit the stack of stuff on the top of the machine.The freezer should be in between 32 and 35 degrees this maters even if it is off a degree or 2 the machine may not work.It may take a little wile for the machine to cool down enough for the ice maker to kick on.A simple thermamitor would be nice for testing the temp.This is only one option and it may work or it may not but hey it is cheep

Look into the dispensor , and see if the door flap is closing , or letting warm air in which will cause the frost buildup . If not closing completely , remove the top cover on the freezer door hinge , and unplug the plug . This will remove power to the door . Use a small screwdriver , and insert under the freezer door dispensor control board , and pry outward . Remove the 3 plugs on the board . Next , remove the 4 screws holding the white dispensor cover , and slide outward . At the top right , you will see a solenoid and plunger , which control the door flap . Usually , this plunger rusts on the solenoid . Replace both , the solenoid and plunger ( come together in kit ) Pt # WR62X10055 . Re-assemble in reverse .
