Yes, the prefix of 106 means Whirlpool Cooling Products. You would need to take the plastic line off of the ice maker side of the fill valve and and attach a test cord to the 2 terminals and plug it into a 120 volt outlet and see if a good stream of water comes thru. This by-passes the ice maker. If you do get good water flow, the valve should be good. If very little comes out or just sprays a little it may be going bad, and will not be enough to fill the ice maker. If you do have a real good strong flow of water, this would indicate there is no voltage to the valve from the ice maker, meaning the ice maker is defective or something has happened to the wiring to the valve.
