The water stopped coming out - I push the lever, but nothing; however, the ice will still come out... I didn't know if it was a dirty filter; however, I don't even know where it is located or how to fix or replace anything... Please help...
Without knowing the model # filter is usually located on bottom of fridge in grill.
When you depress the lever listen for the water valve in back of fridge to click on if not you may need a new water valve.
What is the age and model # of fridge?

The problem is actually in the dispenser lever. The paddle that you press to dispense ice has a plastic lever/arm that extends behind it (you can't see it, it's up high in the assembly.) This plastic lever presses upwards when you push the paddle and presses into a switch. The switch actuates the ice. This little lever is also the ONLY thing that stops the paddle from continuing to press into the water paddle. So when the lever breaks, it creates your two symptoms - no ice and if you press further, you press the water switch and get water.
You need part# DA97-08519A. This is the lever assembly with the switches. You pry the control panel assembly (the whole digital display above the water/ice dispenser) out by inserting a slim pry bar (I used a pocket knife and didn't damage the finish) on one side and working my way around. The assembly is held in place by five plastic tabs (two on each side and one on the top.) When this is removed, the part# above will be obvious.
There is a simple switch behind the push lever which activates the water/ice dispenser circuit. Sometimes these switches are poorly engineered to the lever with an adhesive or plastic rod which will break away. This is the first place I would look for a culprit.
Hi, When you push the water switch in the door, do you the inlet valve humming? Is it possible that the wires came off the inlet valve? If you remove the inlet valve from the cabinet and unhook the large size tubing that leads to the water dispenser, you can engage the dispenser lever in the door and see if water comes out. I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist yyou further.
