Although you did not mention whether the water button  works or not, it is highly likely that the problem is centered around 2 areas...the  microswitch that is pressed when asking for ice, or the actual dispenser board, shown below. It controls the  ice door and the augur motor functions, so if it fails, nothing happens. There should be a mini-manual for your frigde under the lower kickplate on the left side in a small envelope which might help you out.

Where's it located??
Did you just ask that after I showed you the diagram of your dispenser parts?


 I also said the little switch (#72) in the diagram, might be the problem. It doesn't cost near what a board will. If you don't have a meter, you might want to get one.

Any part cost you want to look up is done with your model number in the little boxes on the left side of this page.
