Re: the water dispenser in the door suddenly stopped...
Try checking the hose that goes from the freezer to the water pipe it is hooked up to, it may be clogged. If you aren't sure if it is clogged just go to home depot and buy a new hose kit witht eh spout, it cost no more thna $20. This happened to me and when I replaced the old hose and spout with a new one it worked fine.

To find the problem, follow the water line back from the dispenser to the next connection, disconnect each connection you find, one at a time, if still no water, reconnect and go to the next connection and try there, once you get water coming out, the blockage/problem is between the last 2 points you checked. Water will come out fairly fast so only activate the dispenser for a few seconds, each time and have a towel handy.
When you press the water dispenser button, do you hear a noise like water is trying to come as usual. If so then your problem might be frozen chill water tank or failed chill water valve. If you don't hear the regular noise then the problem might be with the dispenser unit.
maybe ice formed around chute from leaky air seal??? warm area with hair dryer blowing hot air up into chute for 10 minutes. check for water and wipe all off. unplug refg and plug in after 3 minutes to reset electronics
if helpful please rate me. if not please tell me more.

If you can't hear the solenoid on the water
inlet valve(it's on the back where the water supply hooks up) when you try the
water then the water switch on the dispenser is at fault.
you do hear it Your water line could be
frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line at the bottom before it goes
into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if it comes
out there. If it does, leave the door open till it thaws. If it doesn't come out there disconnect
it at the water inlet valve and see if it comes out there. The valve could
be bad. A strainer before the inlet valve
can also get stopped up restricting flow.
most fridges stop dispensing water when you open the door. Find the door switch and make sure fridge interior light goes on/off when you manually press door switch. This would show you that the door switch was faulty.
If the water connection to the appliance is one of those watts flood-safe water lines, it may have stuck shut. I've seen this happen when the house water pressure is too high.
Does it still make ice?
If so, then the water connection is good, and either the switch in the water dispenser has failed or the water shutoff valve for the water dispenser has gone bad.
Some models have a problem with the water line getting frozen, such that simply leaving the light on in the water dispenser compartment overnight and/or manually defrosting the unit can get it working again.
It's more common to be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line under the
unit before it goes into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser
button and see if it comes out there. If it does leave the door open till it thaws If it doesn't come out then disconnect
the line to the water dispenser at the water inlet valve on the back where the
water supply comes in and try the dispenser. if you hear the valve work but
water doesn't come out, the valve is bad. If the water comes out then check the reservoir.It's behind the crispers in the fridge.
I am not expert but this exact same thing happened to me - same model of fridge. The line which brings water in is frozen. I don't know how to solve it permanently, but if you take out the two produce drawers you can see where the water comes through. Put a hair dryer blowing on it for a few minutes and it will get it going again.
