Remember the ejection arms are straight down. If I were to fill the IM with water then the arms will be in the middle of the cube. don't think it will eject a popsickle ice cube. The order I did this trouble shoot was to clean the top right coil, hairdryer trick and replaced the WCV. Then I felt inside the ice maker and realized the arms were down. Like you I think the IM motor is bad. Also held down the bell 10 secs and unplugged the unit.
