Ice maker is not getting water. I tried to replace an ice maker itself then inlet valve but nothing has changed. There is no water going into the ice maker. Water dispenser works fine and the filter is new. Cables lower between the door and a cabinet also seem fine

Are you absolutely sure you checked all the wires under the door? You have to remove the black LOOM over those wires and check underneath that LOOM too.

Look here:

The black insulation was a little broken but no wires itself seem to be affected. I opened it up all away to make sure I wasn't missing anything. Also two water lines (pic no 2) has a water in it

That was it! Line was broken inside the insulation so one would not tell easily just from the observation, it needed very thoughtful inspection. Thanks Jake! This is my first time fridge fix
