I replaced the dual water inlet valve. It was easier than I thought. I also found the tubing going from the valve to the ice maker had a hole in it right where it passes the compressor. Appearently it get hot and the tube had turned brittle and split. I also pulled out the tube where it enters the back of the frig and goes into the icemaker. I should have done that prior to replacing the valve because I discovered it was plugged with frost and wouldn't let any water through.
