One is on the back of the unit and is the water inlet valve and the other is in the freezer door behind the dispenser display.

No water from water dispenser

first check to see if you have water coming in from the water line.shut off water valve,disconnect line at back of unit,turn valve back on making sure it goes into a bucket.if you have water,reconnect.2 possible problems,bad water solonoid valve or froze water line..Sometimes the actual switch sticks but not likely your would have to check voltage at solonoid valve.if you have water coming in and voltage at solonoid when when you hit the water button,then it is the solonoid.if not, may be frozen internal water line as they run threw the bottom of the freezer .

Water wont come in

Eliminate the obvious. Water turned on to machine .Door shut all the way.Next check fill solonoid usually located at bottom front behind kick plate.Be careful ,120 volts should be available at solonoid at some point during cycle use volt meter with caution. you may want to call a tech .If no voltage then it is either bad overflow switch or control or timer or door switch.If there is voltage then solonoid is shot
good luck

It is not letting water in, yes water is on, is there a solonoid which could be broken

There is a water inlet solenoid valve. It should be located at where the water is plumbed into the washer. Hope this helps you.

Icemaker draining alot of water

if you mean that the water is not rurning off going into the ice maker then its likely a bad solonoid ... there are two such solonoids (one for water and one for ice) located usually at the bottom behind rthe refregerator .. they can be found where the water is hooked up to the refrigerator ... the electrically operated solonoids are valves that turn water on and off ... if they get deposits inside they may quit working .. replaceing them is usually not hard (make sure to unplug first) ...

The dishwasher isnt doing the full cycle

A few things here one with no water coming in the water solonoid could be blocked or is fualty,check to ensure the filter in the soloniod is clean do this by removeing the inlet pipe from the conection at the back of the machine and in the solonoid is a small filter remove it and clean ,reconnect the water and try again,if no water is taken the chances are that the solonoid is gone replace it after you have checked the following ,second if water is taken then see if the timer moves if it does not then look at replaceing the timer again after going through all the possibilities,the motor running is part of the process the motor is meant to run to drain exsess water before takeing new water .the only other thing is that the pressure switch has not released normally from an obstuction in the pressure pipe worst case the switch itself has packed up to test is easy locate the pressure switch and blow into it and if you hear a click and another click when you stop blowing it should be ok if not replace it.

Ice amker and water spickett is no longer working

Hollow ice cubes are the result of poor water flow to the ice maker. I know you already have experienced flow issur since you mentioned poor water dispenser flow. You apparently have a filter clogged, a house supply valve clogged or lastly a clogged water solonoid valve. The filter is self explanitory. You would replace the filter. The house supply valve is next most likely, to test it you would need to remove the supply line at the rear of the refrigerator after turning supply off the turn supply on to check flow. If the flow is STRONG then next most likely is a clogged solonoid valve. To test it you would, with supply connected and turned on, need to locate the plastic tube that goes to the water dispenser reservoir in the refrigerator section. Disconnect the tube at the solonoid valve and place glass or pitcher at solonoid port while someone presses the diapenser lever. If you have poor flow then but had good supply flow, the valve must be bad.
