Question about Samsung 24.8 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Thru-the-Door Ice and Water - Stainless-Platinum... Side by Side Refrigerator
In many of the refrigerators, the waterline goes from the bottom of the fridge up thru the freezer door hinge (there's a hole for it). It feeds up and comes out at the water dispenser. Replacing the one in my Whirlpool (they make many other brands, also) was simple, taking about 20 minutes my first time. You don't need to order the repair kit (tubing and connector) that costs about $55. It's all standard parts you can get at any hardware store.
After removing the tubing, take a piece to the store to get the same size. I bought the additional connector for $3, but didn't need it because the old one worked fine. The original tubing was about 4 ft. and I replaced it with a 6 ft. section ($1.20), with the extra tucked under the fridge, so if / when it happens again, I can just pull thru from the extra. NOTE: my tube broke at the water dispenser outlet on the door. I read somewhere that it may be caused by the door light being left on continuously. Because it is close to the tubing, the heat from the bulb, over a few years, may have caused the tube to become brittle. TIP: if, when pushing the tube up thru the door, it gets caught before it comes out the water dispenser opening, you might want to cut the leading edge of the tip at an angle that may help it make the needed bend(s) going thru the door.
Here is the video showing how to replace the waterline.

Water lines inside doors are typically not serviceable as the insulation is "foam in place". Pulling apart the door and reassembling will be next to impossible. Generally the door would need to be replaced.

My water dispensor INSIDE the door froze
I payed a repair guy $75 to use MY BLOWDRYER to "thaw" the frozen water line INSIDE the freezer door (below the water dispenser).
He said anytime the frozen food extends over the freezer shelf and touches the freezer door for a long enough period of time, the water line inside the door FREEZES!!
PREVENTION: "Keep some airspace between the door and frozen food."
