Ice Maker won't dispense ice

My fridge (whirlpool) makes ice just fine, however, when I push the dispenser nothing happens. No sound of any kind. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.

Hi,
Check the back of the button and make sure the actual switch didn't slide back.

Hi,
A copy...
Some common repair info on testing this type of a problem. Did the water and ice stop dispensing at the same time?...if yes, look for things that are common to both. Door safety switch, broken wire.
Ice dispenser only has quit. How some work....putting a glass against the glass pad pushes on a micro switch that sends power to the dispenser motor inside the freezer. The ice cube flapper door opens for the ice to go through the door. The dispenser motor inside the freezer turns the dispenser bucket arm to pull the ice forward in the bucket towards the door ice cube opening. The ice falls through the door flapper opening into the glass.
Things that can happen:
- micro switch broken
- dispenser motor bad
- loose wire on the dispenser
- broken wire
- some incorporate an electronic board that sends the power to the motor inside the freezer.
