Sorry to hear that you have no ice!

If you reach in the top of the icemaker does it have ice ,water or is it empty in the ice maker mold?

And if the unit is only one week old do not work on it you will void your warranty ,just call for an in warranty service call on the issue.

hello Woody.........
Appliance Technician: Whrlp Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 1 year ago

to see the icemaker you need to remove the ice storage bin off of the door .

but if you can see in the top of the icemaker and it has no water and of ice.

You have no water getting to the icemaker.

This could be a water supply issue to the unit ,a water inlet valve issue , or even a frozen water line.

Does the chilled water dispenser work properly?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
chilled water works fine
Appliance Technician: Whrlp Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 1 year ago

ok so then it is not a issue of the water supply to the unit.

The unit had a dual water inlet valve assembly (one for the icemaker ,and one for the chilled water) ,BUT it is a all in one part

Can you see or hear if the icemaker is cycling and just not bringing in water to the icemaker?

we have not heard or seen anything.
Appliance Technician: Whrlp Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 1 year ago

ok so if the icemaker does not have water in it to freeze it may not reach the preset temperature for it to cycle.

Thus it would not do anything.

So let`s trick it , take a small glass of water and fill the icemaker cavity /mold up till the water is just below the white rake arms and lets let it set for a few hours and see if it will then cycle and dump the frozen water / cubes.

Then you can let me know what it has done.

water flowed straight thru.... looking closer I see wires. This may be back of maker. Stuck hand up and behind and felt flippers and ice. Is mechanism stuck?
Appliance Technician: Whrlp Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 1 year ago

I do not know is the ice surrounding the flipper rod so that it can not rotate ? if so then yes it is frozen and you will need to defrost the ice in the icemaker cavity /mold.

Well... beats me. do I use a hairdryer on the thing.? If that doesn't work.... call Whirlpool?
Appliance Technician: Whrlp Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 1 year ago

Yes a hair dryer on medium heat will defrost the ice also .

And yes if the unit is brand new do not start taking it apart it is still under warranty.
