Here is a list of things i have tested that can confirm work;
  • Auger motor turns on just fine and spins when in diagnostics mode
  • Removed Ice Bucket and motor still does not start
  • Water works fine when paddle is depressed
  • When ice is selected the paddle makes a sound when depressed and opens, but does not start auger motor
  • neither cubed or crushed work
  • I replaced the Crushed/Cubed Ice Solenoid, but no change
  • Ice maker makes ice just fine
  • can confirm all connections to interface and motor and firmly connected

I was hoping someone could help me narrow down what is the most likely culprit or help direct me to the part that would need to be replaced.

Thank you

Hi,

Since the auger motor worked in diagnostic mode, then we know the auger motor is good, so that just leaves the dispenser module as the culprit.

Here's the dispenser module for your model you can order:
242270102 Module


There is a video that shows you how to replace it here:

Just a follow-up to let you and anyone that has a similar problem know that the dispenser module you recommended fixed the problem and it is working again. Thanks again Jake
