The water was not coming from the dispenser or the ice maker. It is a result of a plugged defrost drain tube.
When the refrigerator goes into defrost, if the water is unable to get out the defrost drain, it ends up on the floor of the freezer. You will have to clear out the defrost drain. It is a tube which is behind the back wall of the freezer compartment, at the very bottom of the cooling coils. Use a turkey baster with hot (not boiling) water to flush it out until the water runs out the drain (and into the defrost drain pan under the refrigerator where it will evaporate as the fan blows air over it).

Bottom of ice dispencer freezes and wont let ice come out. It is a whirlpool side by side


Check the door flap on the freezer door , which opens to let the ice come thru . If this flap does not close completely , then it will let frost accumulate inside the ice bin , blocking ice from dispensing . If you had given the model number , I would give the part number for the door kit .

Ice maker leaking


Are you sure it's the ice maker that's leaking? We have this model & ours accumulates a HUGE iceberg in the bottom of the freezer, but the water seems to be coming out of the back, at the bottom of the back panel, where the vents are.

Water dispencer not working


check inside the bottom of the refrigerator for water, the water line goes thru the back of the refrigerator and it may have cracked and leaking inside instead of going to the dispenser. 
if not then water is most likely frozen in the line going thru the back of the refrigerator. look behind the pans in the refrigerator and there should be a coil of clear plastic water line, this is the reservoir that chills the water for the dispenser. sometimes it will freeze up if the refrigerator is very cold.

Texas, sounds like your water reservoir is frozen up. Remove your 2 cripser drawers, you will see the reservoir behind them. Take a hair dryer and go over the tank and tubing ends. See if the water starts flowing. I find a lot of frozen water reservoirs on these french door models. They have a insulation kit for them. Catriver.

Most likely it is the High Voltage Control board located in the unit compartment (take off the back cover where the water lines are) i have had lots of them failing and doing all kinds of odd things, so far it has been that computer. Part number 12002608
