Question about Kenmore Refrigerators
Water line is fine, ice maker works, light and lock on freezer door work but no water
Most likely you need a new water valve or water switch. If there is a click when you push a glass against the water dispenser, that is the solenoid opening. If no click it might need replacing. On mine, the water came out slower and slower; replacing the water inlet valve on the back near the bottom fixed it.

If it's happily making ice then the mechanism where you put your glass is faulty, not recognising the action & denying water.

check the water valve on the back of the ref. it sends water to the ice maker and water in the door one can work and the other one not

Here recently I have run into 2 of these units that do this and have found that the dispenser line is frozen in the freezer door. The way to test this is to remove the kick plate under the doors (It is easiest to open both doors to do this) Disconnect the union in the water line leading to the door by pushing in on the waterline and pulling in on the end of the fitting. When the line is apart, close the doors and push in on the paddle as to fill a cup with water. If you get water out of the line under the door then your line in your door is frozen and you will either need to replace your door or let the unit thaw for 24 hours with the doors open. Cheaper to thaw. If no water comes out under the door when paddle is pressed then you will need to replace the water valve as long as you have 120 volts at the valve when actuated.
