For Whirlpool Water Inlet Valve (Part Number: AP5263471)

The icemaker stopped working. Based on info from this site, we replaced the water inlet valve. The icemaker still doesn't work. Water does not come up the tube from the valve. The tube is not frozen. We took the icemaker apart. There are no burn marks; there is no corrosion. When we did the wire test on holes T and H the icemaker heater came on but still no water was brought into the ice maker. Does the icemaker itself activate the valve to bring the water up to it? Should we replace the icemaker or is there something else that would keep the water inlet valve from activating. We continue to get water through the door. Thanks, Bob

ANSWER Bob, The icemaker module has contacts on it that send power to the water valve to bring the water up to the icemaker. When the icemaker is at about the 11 to 11:30 position is when the water valve should active. Test for voltage on the icemaker between v and n and this is the valve circuit. See if the icemaker is sending the power. If not then replace module W10190935
