I looked at the back of the fridge.  The grey tube enters at the bottom right of the fridge.  The clear tube comes back out of there and enters at the top of the fridge right in the center.  Would you lean towards thinking it is not getting water, and it is the water valve that is the problem?  If so what is the part number please?
Thanks, you guys are awesome!

I looked up your model number and the water valve is part # W10159839.

Before ordering the water valve I would remove the line that goes to the ice maker and try to blow air through it to make sure it's not frozen shut.

WHIRLPOOL W10159839 Water Inlet Valve, AP4327602
