SOURCE: Ice Maker problem 106-626636
Pull the front cover off the i/maker. There are holes on the module(the piece with the large gear) They are labeled T an H at around 5 oclock L and V around 6-9 oclock use a piece of wire to jumper l and v first it should start to fill if it doesnt the fill tube may be iced up, if it does fill then jumper t and h for about 6-10 secs or until it will advance by itself. Also whirlpool had a batch of faulty modules the large gears were breaking if it wont advance or if the plastic gear falls off easily then this is the problem. Dont forget to rate my solution!! Thanks!!!

Hollow ice cubes are due to low water pressure to the fridge. Water thru the door should have good pressure behind it. This is a good indicator of water pressure. Should be able to fill a glass quickly. Causes for low pressure are self-piercing saddle valves on the water line (switch to drill type (1/4") valve) or reverse osmosis system or filtering system on water line to the fridge. R.O. systems should not be used. Increase water pressure and that will fix the hollow cubes. The loud noise may be the sound of the water valve on the fridge when it is acivated. This sound is normal and some are louder than others.

SOURCE: Ice maker makes hollow ice! Why?
Not getting enough water into the ice maker. Could be a partially frozen supply line, restricting the total water input, or it could be that the timer needs to be adjust.
If the water supply tube to the icemaker is frozen. It will be a white rubber tube on the right side of the icemaker. Warm it with a hair dryer, remove it from its aluminum tubing, and make sure there is no ice all the way back to where the supply tube comes from the water valve. After thawing, your icemaker should start working again.
Now..... why did it freeze? Most likely, there is a restricted airflow to the back of the unit, which is need to keep that aluminum supply tube just warm enough to assure all the water flow OUT of it into the icemaker, and doesn't freeze up on contact. Make sure your coils and the airspace under the fridge are completely clean (vacuuum them well) and it should cure the problem.

Most ice makers have an adjustment screw to control the cube size. Its usually hidden behind a plastic panel on the front of the ice maker. A quarter turn either way and some trial and error testing should get you pointed in the right direction to your ideal ice cube.
