Check the ice maker,the base rots out where the water forms into ice cubes or check the tray and the auger to see if a part of it broke off and is grinding up with the ice cubes

My ice maker does not make crushed ice anymore, it comes out in big pieces and regular cubes.

Hey Barb.. does it make "popping" sounds?.. if so..the ice "bucket" shaft has broken the plastic at the drive end.. or either the blades have lost their sharpened edges or the rod that runs through the ice tray is not working...
...... I have a GE.. the ice maker broke at about 13 months..I replaced it... it broke again.. its plastic and will break again...so I get no crushed ice... just big cubes..I am not replacing again!!..

My ice machine makes ice but will not give me out cubed ice when its on cubed ice setting 'always gives out crushed ice as my new fridge'freezer is only 1 year old

I found someone who posted with the same problem including a picture: http://www.applianceblog.com/mainforums/lg/18343-help-lg-lsc27910st-crushed-ice-no-solid-cubes.html

I followed his link to the Sears site and it looks like the part number is 6421JB2001D. I don't have my hands on one to confirm it is for sure the right part.

Ice cube dispenser will only deliver crushed ice

Remove the ice bin, and in the back of the freezer you'll see a square opening with a white plastic piece inside. When you dispense cubed ice this piece lifts up, lifting the long metal rod that runs along the bottom of the ice bin. When that rod lifts it opens the ice flap at the front of bin, allowing cubes to be dispensed. If the flap is not open, the cubes will be ground against the cutters and you will get crushed ice.

Here's what you can do to make it so that you always get cubed ice. Take a wine cork and stand it on end. Using a good knife, I positioned the blade about 1/3 of the diameter from the edge and cut all the way through the length of the cork. Then remove the ice tray.

Now put your finger in the sqaure opening and lift up the white pastic piece. Slide the modified cork under the flap so that it is jammed into the raised position. (This is the position it should be in when you are asking for cubed ice.) Now slide the ice tray back in while using your left hand to push the plastic ice flap at the front of the tray to the left side (again, the position it should be in for delivering cubed ice). Peer under the tray while you're slowly sliding it back in so that you can see if the metal rod connected to that ice flap successfully slides into the square opening at the back. If it can't slide in above the cork-raised plastic piece, you may need to pull the cork back out and trim a little more off it.

This worked for me... I can't get crushed ice anymore, but I've only needed crushed ice once in the 16 months I've lived here so that's not an issue for me.

Ice cube are not dipensed only crushed ice

Remove the ice bin, and in the back of the freezer you'll see a square opening with a white plastic piece inside. When you dispense cubed ice this piece lifts up, lifting the long metal rod that runs along the bottom of the ice bin. When that rod lifts it opens the ice flap at the front of bin, allowing cubes to be dispensed. If the flap is not open, the cubes will be ground against the cutters and you will get crushed ice.
I had the same problem you do - the solenoid that lifts that white plastic piece is dead. But I also rent the place where I live, and it comes with the fridge. It's not likely the landlord will want to deal with this issue since I can still get ice, not considered a necessity, etc. So here's what I did to make it so that I always get cubed ice.

Take a wine cork and stand it on end. Using a good knife, I positioned the blade about 1/3 of the diameter from the edge and cut all the way through the length of the cork. Then remove the ice tray.

Now put your finger in the sqaure opening and lift up the white pastic piece. Slide the modified cork under the flap so that it is jammed into the raised position.

Ice maker crushes ice even in the cube mode

Remove the ice bin . Press the door switch in , and press the dispensor actuator pad . In the back , on the panel with the prongs , there is a square box cut-out , which houses a white square plastic piece . If this piece doesn't lift when set on cubes , then the solenoid is bad or a wire has come off of the solenoid . To access this solenoid , remove the 3 or 4 screws holding the panel on . Also try lifting this plastic piece with your finger , to see if it is frozen . Also a sign that the cube solenoid needs to be replaced .

MAYTAG Ice control doesn't change from Cubed to Crush

If you prefer ONLY cubes , remove the ice bin and 1 or 2 screws hold the long rod attached to the bin . Without this rod , you'll only get cubes . With the bin removed , the square hole where the rod inserts in the rear freezer wall , you'll see a square , white , plastic "gate" . Asolenoid with a plunger , raises this gate for cubed ice and keeps it lowerer for crushed ice . Usually this "gate" plunger , rusts , thereby replaceing the solenoid and plunger would have to be done . Without the rod on the bin , the inner flap would open automatically , dispensing cubed ice .

Ice maker only crushes/does not cube

Remove the ice bin. Look at the back wall, behind where the bin was. You should see a rectangular hole, about 1.5 x 1 inches near the bottom of where the ice bin was. There should be a white plastic part inside the hole. This plastic part should be able to be lifted up with your finger, and drop down again when you release it. If is does not move, it may be frozen, or the electrical solenoid connected to it may have melted. If the part moves freely, just replace the ice bucket and try to dispense cubes again. (the metal arm sticking out the back of the ice bucket might have gotten on the wrong side of the white plastic part in back)

Crushed ice only

pull out your ice bin.  in the back of the bin you will see a rod protruding from one side.  That rod goes into an opening in the rear of the freezer. the plastic piece in that opening raises and lowers the arm on the ice bin giving you crushed or cubed ice.  check to see if that plastic piece is froze up or if your rod got stuck on top of it.
