I have a Kenmore model 253.53729300. This is a side-by-side model made in 2003. It stopped making ice a week ago. I popped the cover off the ice maker (model SA8868), and the gears continue to run when it is turned on. Plus, I can hear the sound of the pump trying to add water to the ice maker. I figured this meant that the water valve was bad, so I replaced it today.

After replacing the valve and turning on the fridge, I got some misshapen ice cubes, but it seemed to be working. But then each new batch of ice cubes got smaller and smaller, and now there's no water in the molds of the ice maker again.

The water dispenser works fine and seems to have good pressure, so I don't think this is a low pressure situation from the water supply. But maybe I'm wrong?

What else could it be? Should I replace the tubing from the valve to the ice maker?

I put the two strips on the back of the evaporator shield against the plastic liner (wall).  and stuck the other one to the bottom of the drain pan.  I hope I did this right as you said, the pictures make you wonder if this is right or not.  I'll let you know if she does not call back in a week or so then I'll know it is working ok and not freezing up again.

Washer Repair / Re: Transcribed Video: Whirlpool Cabrio Bearing Replacement.

Was following this instruction/video until I got to the part "Clean the bearing and seal area with a rag. Check the weep hole to make sure it is not plugged." Unfortunately, this is my first washer repair and I have no idea what a weep hole is or where it's located or what it's supposed to look like clean (or dirty for that matter). The picture in the instructions is no good as I can barely make out a thumb and finger, it being so blurry. All I can do is hope it is clean and resume. If is not clean what will happen? If I have problems, this washer is going to the curb and I'm going back to old-style agitator washer that will last for 25 years instead of 5.
Washer Repair / Re: Could it be the pressure switch?

Looks like the new pressure switch will come with a new hose too.
what i recommend to my customers is taking a glass bowl and putting it upright on the upper basket , and fill it up with vinegar. this way when spraying , water will displace the vinegar and no worry that it will drain immediately after starting the cycle .
without looking on the diagram it will be impossible to tell , you have to trace wire by wire to the ecb and test the output. i seen once microwave light bulb burning out and causing damage to the main ecb 
(damage relay) but it was lightbulb underneath the microwave and it was halogen.

i also suspect water solenoid valve but the weird thing is that the icemaker funnel is not frozen . with the slow drip you would see funnel also frozen. ???
