My icemaker is not getting water, hence not making ice cubes.

The water dispensor in the freezer door is working.
Today I defrosted the freezer and the ice tray is still not getting water.

Ideas?

Yes, I fixed it and it works fine now. I needed to replace the Water Solenoid Inlet Valve. It was located under the fridge and easily accessible. Before replacing I went to Youtube to watch a video on how to test a solenoid. Ordered a new one online and took me 15 minutes to switch-out. Had to adjust the water flow screw on the icemaker because the new solenoid was overfilling my ice tray.

The part I replaced: Universal Refrigerator Replacement Water Solenoid Inlet Valve WR57X10051
