This answer was rated:

WHIRLPOOL GS6SHEXMT00. When either lever on water/ice dispenser is press lights flash once then nothing. Maybe three drop of water are dispensed. What could the problem be?
staring at it doesn't work I've tried. LOL , this doesn't give ice either or does it? is it just the water thats not comming out?

No ice is not dispensing. Unit makes an kind of sound don't know if it is an arc and it makes the sound for 1 millisecond, lights flash once then nothing.
unfortunately thats not a good thing because its going to be the dispenser control and this is expensive, Sears has this in stock for $148.00, heres a link, roupId=0046&supplierId=106&brandId=x&documentId=W0310116&keySuffixId=NA&modelNumber=x&keyId=0015&pageId=00008&productTypeId=x&searchModelNumber=GS6SHEXMT00&subCompDesc=Dispenser%20front%20parts&brandDesc=WHIRLPOOL&modelDesc=SIDE-BY-SIDE-REFRIGERATOR&blt=11
