Hello and thankyou for using this service!
I am sorry to hear about the problem you are having with your fridge
Let's work together to find out what is wrong :)
The tube from the wall goes to the icemaker fill valve. From there is goes up to the IM.
There is a two wire plug attached to the valve that activates the valve when the IM calls for water. If you have water from the wall, then you have either a problem with the valve itself or the tube going from valve up to the IM is blocked. Probably by ice. If you remove the tube off the IM you should be able to blow thru the tube up to the IM.

Sorry , I meant icemaker valve as you guessed. If you can blow from the valve, you should not get restriction.
Also, an easy way to test the icemaker is to just pour some water into the molds and let it run overnight. In the am you should have a batch of cubes and then you know you have a valve problem.
There is only 2 parts to the system. The icemaker and the valve.
Take a cup and add some water to the icemaker and see if it dumps the batch of ice the next day. There is no reset. If you have replaced the valve, that would only leave the icemaker as the probable cause. Your model used the older electronic icemaker and the unit has a water test that should activate the water valve every time you fip the power switch on the side of the Icemaker. If that test fails, you need to replace the icemaker
Back on a previous chat, I said to pour water into the icemaker and watch it. Maybe you just missed it.
"Also, an easy way to test the icemaker is to just pour some water into the molds and let it run overnight. In the am you should have a batch of cubes and then you know you have a valve problem."
The system uses only the two components, the valve and the icemaker, and unfortunately there is no repairs on the electronic icemaker . Your only option is replacement.
The icemaker is bad or it would have given you a batch of cubes.
