Question about Whirlpool Refrigerators
Open the freezer door and then the ice maker door and look into the ice maker tray using a flashlight. If the tray has water you have one of two problems. Either the heater is bad that releases the cubes when they are done or the motor is bad that spins the unit to eject the cubes.
Both the heater and the motor can be checked if you know how to use a DMM and have a good set of mechanical/electrical skills. This website http://www.retrevo.com may have the schematic for the unit which would help you. If not try http://www.repairclinic.com . They also would have the parts and the entire ice maker if the unit is beyond repair. In addition repairclinic has very good videos showing how to replace most items. Give them a look first.
If the icemaker does not have any water in it you probably need to change the filter. If you do not have the manual the two websites I mentioned will be helpful to get the filter changed.
Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

would first check to see if there is an ice cube or two stuck in the ice maker.
Then make sure that the frig is not on top of the water line, blocking water from getting through the line, (especially if you have moved the frig recently).
If neither one of those suggestions are it, then make sure that your water filter is not clogged; if you have one connected to the line.
And if none of these help,then make sure that the shut-off valve is turned on.
