Emptyed out freezer unit & shut it off. Took a hair dryer and blew hot air for about 3 minutes on ice maker unit just in case it had an ice block. Left door open and let is stand for about 10 minutes. Turned everything back on and it started making ice.

one possible solution is that the ice maker water valve has failed (solenoid). I would try switching the wires on the water valves and see if water goes into the ice maker when you push the water dispenser button, if it does the valve is ok. If you go this far go ahead and fill the ice maker with water ( about half to two thirds full) switch wiring back as first found and see if maker will freeze and dump ice, if it does ok, if not the problem is probably in the ice maker.

SOURCE: icemaker not filling with water
using an hairdryer or defrosting the unit completely , this often get
rid of blockage caused by frozen lines fixing the problem.
The water lines can also be unblocked from dirt using a thin flexible shaft. This after defrosting.
If all that does not fix the problem, then you may need to replace the water valve, the icemaker solenoid, or the whole icemaker assembly.

Does the water have a good flow ? Did you try putting the old filter back in ? Never change the filter just because a little red light comes on . Only replace when the ice cubes get small or the water dispensor flow gets slow . I have found new filters that were bad . Distributors make a lot of money for filters just because of that little red lite . Not just maytag , but all other brands also . Try pouring about 1/2 cup of water into icemaker . If it dumps the cubes but doesn't fill , replace the water valve . If it doesn't dump , and holds the cubes for a long period of time , replace the icemaker . Also , you may need to clean the coils of dust , lint , etc....

Was the pressure ok before you changed the filter? The water valve itself could be partially plugged or the supply line may be filling with minerals. Usually happens in the piercing tap used to attacc to the house line. Difficult to say for sure without seeing the way it is installed. If it was just the drinking water I would suggest the reservoir being froze up but since it affects both look at my initial comments...
