Re: water dispenser doenst work
One thing I for got to mention is the water control valves on back of refrigerator. Check the power going to the plug that attaches to the water supply for cold water. While pressing the dispenser you should get 120 volts.(Depending where you live) If you get voltage there and water does not flow then I would consider replacing the water valves. Sea Breeze

I had a simular problem! I tried multiple things to make it work!
- bought new filter
- open back of the fridge... (dual outlet water valve)
Finally, I went to a different forum and found a unique idea.
First at the very bottom of the fridge theres a cover remove the cover and you should see the water hose running to the door from the back. In the middle of the hose there a coupler where the hose was spliced by the manufactuer. Now this valve once you separate it will not work correctly, unless you buy a new coupler (4$)... I'm el cheapo, I bought teflon tape for 50 cents (from previous project)... Wrapped around about half dozen times and made sure it wasnt leaking...
Secondly, when you disconnect the coupler no water should shoot out, until you press the water dispenser arm. If water shoots out of the hose on the bottom then you problem is really, really, really easy. You have simplely ice/ or another item blocking water hose to the actual dispenser.
I turned off the frezzer left the door open for an hour or so. I also used my wife's blow dryer on hot, and put it where the ice comes out of the ice maker. I would press the arm peridocially to see if the ice blockage melted yet. REMEMBER: door must be closed for pressure to push on the ice blockage. Thinking back, I might have been finished sooner... I was thinking the water dispenser would work with the door open.
If this doesnt work, then you have other problems... Bad water dispenser selonoid (you can hear this little motor turning even without water), dual water outlet valve maybe broken... Going outside my knowldege level at this point.... But i guess you computer board maybe going bad. Not sure if this computer has anything to do with water dispensing....
Hope this helps! My wife left me alone for about a day or two while she enjoyed the water dispenser...And she broke the vaccum.
Its probably way too late, but ours was delivered / came with the water pipe being crushed at the front right at the bottom of the fridge/freezer. So I would check the full length of this small diameter pipe.
I think this is probably just a coincidence that you changed the water filter and a couple of weeks later the dispenser doesnt work. If it failed the same or next day then possibly related but unlikely. The water filter purely affects the water supply line. Does the dispenser (water) make a noise (clicking) when activated. If it does then I would check the incoming water supply. If it makes no noise then you possibly have an electrical fault not providing power down to the water solenoid valve. The way to check the ice dispenser is to see if you first have any ice production if you do then again it could be an electrical control fault. You could check the underneath of the cabinet low level for the wiring connection from the door to see if it is dislodged or damaged however if it is a control issue then I would suggest contacting a good fridge tech. Hope this helps.
