My side-by-side Whirlpool refrigerator/freezer water dispenser

This answer was rated:

My side-by-side Whirlpool refrigerator/freezer water dispenser stopped "dispensing" 6 months ago. Had it checked by handyman and found the problem. Now my ice maker doesn't make ice. I can hear it trying and can see the levers inside that turn out the ice moving, but no ice. I believe the refrigerator is 10 years old. I've even gone as far as trying to remove the face of the ice maker/water dispenser from the front. Wants to come but I'm afraid of breaking it off. What next?
can you get me the full model #? thanks Bryan

ok there could be sevral reasons for this. 1 the valve has failed, Part 3307or the feed tube in the freezer that puts the water into the ice maker is frozen. take a hair dryer and hold it near the tube to defrost it if it is. also make sure the ice maker is going all the way around when it cycles.

If I accept this information, does the page with the answer and view of the valve stay so I can refer back to it if I need the part?
