There are two solenoid valves in the rear of the refrigerator. One that controls water for ice and one that controls water for door dispenser. If the water is not coming through when the button is pushed then have the proper solenoid valve replaced and enjoy. Hope this helps. good luck.

SOURCE: water dispenser not working ice maker is fine

The refrigerator has a dual water valve. The water dispenser side of the valve may be defective, but, my experience has shown the problem to be in the water reservoir, located in the bottom of the fresh food section, which, might be frozen or the water line through the freezer door is frozen. Scenario #1: Remove the kick panel, disconnect the water line from the fitting. Have someone depress the water actuator, while, holding a cup to collect any water which may come through the line. If water comes through the tube. The problem is a frozen water line in the door. My best advice for this problem is to remove any frozen goods from the door. Take a piece of cardboard and seal the freezer section of the refrigerator with any kind of tape. Make sure you tape the door switch in the closed position, so, the refrigerator will continue it's normal operation. The frozen goods will remain frozen and the fresh food section will be okay. Leave the freezer door open. You might want to put a towel under the door. The water line will thaw. It might take 15 minutes. It might take 3 hours. Periodically check the water dispenser operation. When the water flows remove the cardboard. Scenario # 2:if, after disconnecting the water line and depressing the water actuator there is not water. The reservoir is frozen. Use a hair dryer to that the reservoir. You will have to remove at least a couple of crisper drawers to perform this action. The cause of a reservoir freeze is too little stuff in the drawers or too low a temp in the crisper drawer area.

SOURCE: Water dispenser stop working? ice maker is fine.

You have two points where you can check the dispenser water. At the rear where the water supply comes in is the water inlet valve. If you disconnect the dispenser water line and then see if the water comes out when you try the dispenser. You should hear the valve work when you try the dispenser. If you don’t hear it there it’s a dispenser actuator switch problem. If you do hear it but water doesn’t work here there is a valve or water supply problem. If it's normal, disconnect it at the bottom of the freezer door and try again.If it's normal here it may be frozen in the door. If this is the case open the door till it thaws. A blanket over the opening will prevent thawing of all the food.

SOURCE: LG refrigerator won't dispense water any more

The water line is freezing in the door due to deteriorated insulation. The only fix I have found to work on my fridge was to defrost the inside door with a blow dryer. Then place a weedeater replacement line (the orange 10" or so size you find at Lowes' or Home Depot) up through the dispenser nozzle, If the line only travels about 3-4 inches up the nozzle, then ice is still in the tube. Blow dry it until you are able to get water to dispense. After the tube is ice-free, place the weedeater line up throuth the dispenser nozzle leaving about 1/8" sticking out. The dispenser will still work with the line stuck in it. The dispenser will probably freeze again in about 8 hours, But all you need to do each time this happens is to pull the weedeater line out, dispense the water to unclog the ice, and place the weedeater line back in the nozzle. I have been using this method for about a week now and it works great. My GE Side-by-side is also 4 years old and this seems to be a problem with all of them. There is a part you can order to fix the problem, but I have heard it may not work.

Ice maker not getting water after changing filter


Check the following:
 Is the freezer door closed completely?
 Is the ice storage bin installed correctly?
 Is there ice in the storage bin?
 Has the ice frozen in the storage bin?
 Is ice stuck in the delivery chute?
 Has the wrong ice been added to the storage bin? Use only
cubes produced by the current ice maker.
 Has the ice melted around the auger (metal spiral) in the
ice bucket?
Dump the ice cubes and clean the ice storage
bin.
 Is the ice dispenser stalling while dispensing “crushed”
ice?
Change the ice button from “crushed” to “cubed.” If
cubed ice dispenses correctly, depress the button for
“crushed” ice and begin dispensing again.
 Has the dispenser arm been held in too long? Ice will stop
dispensing when the arm is held in too long. Wait 3 minutes
for dispenser motor to reset before using again.

The ON/OFF switch is located on the top right side of the freezer
compartment.
To turn the ice maker on, slide the control to the ON (left) position.
To manually turn the ice maker off, slide the control to the OFF
(right) position.
NOTE: Your ice maker has an automatic shutoff. The ice maker
sensors will automatically stop ice production, but the control will
remain in the ON (left) position

REMEMBER:
 Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice. Discard the
first three batches of ice produced.
 The quality of your ice will be only as good as the quality of the
water supplied to your ice maker. Avoid connecting the ice
maker to a softened water supply. Water softener chemicals
(such as salt) can damage parts of the ice maker and lead to
poor quality ice. If a softened water supply cannot be avoided,
make sure the water softener is operating properly and is well
maintained

The Dispenser Lock (on some models)
Your dispenser can be turned off for easy cleaning or to prevent
unintentional dispensing by small children and pets.
NOTE: The lock feature does not shut off power to the product, to
the ice maker, or to the dispenser light. It simply deactivates the
dispenser levers. The ice and water dispensers will not work.
Style 1: Press the LOCK BUTTON to lock the dispenser. Press the
UNLOCK button to unlock the dispenser.
Style 2: Press and hold the LOCK OUT button to lock the
dispenser. Press and hold the LOCK OUT button a second time to
unlock the dispenser.
