It sounds like you have covered all the primary troubleshooting checks. There is only one thing I can think of at this point.
Check the voltage coming to the water valve during the icemaker cycle. The power to the valve is decreased by the resistence of the icemaker heater from 120 volts down to about 108 volts. It is not uncommon to have a valve that will open when you put 120 volts to it, as you do when you switch solenoids, but not open at the decreased voltage when it goes through the icemaker circuit.
If you are getting voltage to the valve when it cycles, and you know for sure the water line to the icemaker is clear, then you will need to replace the valve.
Post back and let me know what you find.

SOURCE: Ice maker not working
It's possible that the tube that supplies water to the ice maker is blocked with ice (freezer temp. too cold) and not allowing water to get to the Ice tray.
You can squeeze the tube to see if it's iced, and if so you can melt the ice with a blow dryer and adjust your freezer temp. to the manufacturer's suggested setting and work from there.
I have seen this happen, but there are other problems such as just a broken ice maker too.
