To clarify, it won't stop making ice? If so,try the following:
Remove the ice maker.
Remove the wire bail.
Remove the front pop off panel, then the panel with the gear on front by removing 3 screws.
Look at the cam that the wire bail goes into. It should have a plastic pin that fits in the switch under it.
Mine had sheared off, so I driled a very small hole where the pin was, and put a finishing nail there. Cut to size. Mine works fine now.

In this order, check

The wire strainer where the water enters the appliance.

When was the filter changed?

Has it ever been descaled?

It might be the pump, partially blocked or failing.

Release the latch that holds the lever up.

The manual for the UW8F2CXLSB gives the normal defrost procedure. Remove food (you can set the freezer to a lower temperature or the Fast Freeze setting to super chill the food first for several hours). Store the food in a cool location. Then remove the freezer drawers and turn off the unit. Leave the freezer door open and put some towels or other absorbent cloth in the bottom to soak up the ice water. Replace the wet towels with dry ones as needed. Once defrosted, clean and dry the freezer before turning it back on. Then return the food to the freezer. There isn't a fast defrost that I know of for this Whirlpool freezer.

I hope this helps.

Your drain is stopped up. The water is freezing because it has no where to go. Clear the drain line with compressed air.
