According to the diagnostic using the jumper to test the water supply pump and then the unit, my whirlpool motor module is bad. Although the unit is several years old, it has never been used. Is there a setup step that I may have missed when hooking the unit up to a water supply?
Answer If the valve is good, and the water is hooked up, then it should work. Did you jump from T&H on the module? On some models, you will need to hold the door switch closed while jumping T&H for the icemaker to go into harvest mode. If it doesn't move, then you have a bad module.

We have a Whirlpool GS6SHAXMB00. It makes great ice. The problem is it dumps the ice cubes on the floor of the fridgerator. The ice holding tray is not full of ice cubes. Would you know what would cause this!
There is a plastic piece that should be on the front of the icemaker called an ice stripper. If the ice stripper is not in place or has a wrong stripper then the icemaker will dump ice on the floor instead of in the bin. The ice stripper should be angled for the ice to slide down and out toward the bin. The part number for the stripper is W10297244.
My ice maker is not making enough ice . It slow down.
Answer Hello Rose. Check the temp in the unit. It has to be 0 to 5° for proper icemaker operation. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.

My ice maker stop making ice. So far I change the filter, and water inlet valve and still no ice, I get a flow for water thru the water dispenser.
Ps I fill
the tray with water and it make ice and empt it.
Answer Hello John. Make sure the freezer is between 0° and 5°. You need to check and see if there is power going to the water valve when the icemaker cycles. If so, replace the water valve on the unit. If not, or the icemaker does not cycle, you will need to replace the icemaker on the unit. Also, check and make sure the fill tube on the unit is not frozen and clogged. If so, replace the water valve and thaw out the fill tube. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.
