Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator
It's a 5 year old GSH22JFXM unit. Has worked fine until recently when the water dispenser stopped dispensing water. Ice still works fine. Repair person came out and replaced the water valve in the back of the fridge because it had low pressure. He had me unplug fridge for about 12 hours to thaw the line. That worked and I ran seveal quarts of water through the line but it froze again later in the day. He returned to check the valve which is fine. I know the freezing line is a known problem with GE side-by-sides. There doesn't seem to be any satisfactory fix except to replace the whole fridge..... can you tell me anything different?
Check to see if the water tank in the bottom of the refrigerator section is frozen. If it is, you will need to turn the refrigerator section temp down.

SOURCE: GE SIDE X SIDE Dispenser problem
Sound like maybe a dispenser board short... you could try taking of the top hidge cap on the freezer side unplug the power to the board there for 30 minustes or so plug back in and see if it can reset to default and try that before u have to change board

Solenoid or the dispenser switch.
The water supply line connects to a water valve on the Ref. this water valve has two solenoids, one for the ice maker and one for the water in the door. Check this solenoid with an OHM meter.
The dispenser switch should send 110 volts to the solenoid. Check at the solenoid while pushing the water switch in the door.

SOURCE: Water Dispenser not working
If the ice maker is working, and no water is coming out, the water line may be frozen. This happened to me yesterday, and I followed the advice on ehow.com. It worked like a charm! Take a hair dryer, and blow hot air up into the dispenser tube, holding the hair dryer about 8-10 inches away. After about 5 minutes or so, a tiny chip of ice and a couple of drops may pop out. Fill up a couple of glasses of water to flush it out, and you should be good!

There should be a water filter inside the water lines to the water spout. This filter could be clogged, or the water lines themselves may still be somewhat frozen and not allowing flow to the dispenser itself.
You can also test the power to the dispensor to make sure it is drawing water. Can you hear the pump trying to pump water to dispenser? The water valve should also be opening. You can test power to the valve that draws in water from the external water lines.
