I opend the back of my refrigerator and checked the power to Motor. It is showing 120v before i connect the supply to motor but when I connet the motor wire it donesn't run and power supply reading becomes zeroes. I don't know whether the motor is the problem or the motherboard. Please help.

Yes then it is the control board, not the fan motor.
This other member had the same issue here: FIXED Whirlpool GC3SHEXNQ00 not cooling
And the new control board fixed it.
You will need the compressor control board assembly, it sends power to the condenser fan motor:
