The water fill in the icemaker is not working.
 
Kitchenaid Superba Side by Side (9 years). I have replaced the module, optics emitters, and mold. The water line is not frozen as I flushed water through the line with hot water. The ice maker will harvest but no water fill. What is my next option? I am determined to fix this myself.

just curious as to how you flushed water through the fill line, as that line runs through the top of the cabinet? if the fill tube is not frozen most likely the water valve is bad. when you replace individual parts to fix a problem you can end up throwing away a whole lot of money for nothing, sometimes its best to just call the repair man
