SOURCE: water will not full you hear the motor going but

Sounds like a faulty water inlet valve solenoid. The solenoids can be tested for continuity using a multimeter or ohm meter. If either solenoid has no continuity, it is defective and the water inlet valve assembly will need to be replaced. I will attach a photo for reference. Sure hope this helped and best wishes.

SOURCE: water dispenser not working

Check the water lines for any debris found inside. You may want to check the filter. Other than that it may be a weak motor.

What bottle brush do you use to clean a Waterpik SWI 615 Sinusense Water Pulsator?

Any bottle brush will do if it fits into the unit to do the job. If the bristles are polyester or another kind of plastic it will not absorb bacteria. Wash and rinse the brush well after use and don't use it for anything else.

What soap do you use to clean a Waterpik SWI 615 Sinusense Water Pulsator?

All detergents are basically sodium laurel sulphate or sodium loreth sulphate. Even toothpaste, hand soap, bar soap, laundry soap, dish soap contains this ingredient.
It allows oils to mix with water by reducing the surface tension so as to make the water molecules (packets) smaller. By doing so the molecules can get at and dissolve oils where it could not get to previously.
Water is already the worlds greatest universal solvent (every element on the periodic table has been found dissolved in water). Sodium laurel sulphate is toxic though and should never be in the human body and perhaps should never even touch the skin as it might be adsorbed.
It makes you wonder about toothpaste. No wonder they give instructions for children's use to not use more than the size of a pea. They suggest to rinse thoroughly. Detergents don't kill bacteria. They just help wash them away. Detergent washes any food that the bacteria may eat.
Keeping an item dry is the best way to kill bacteria. Antibacteria soaps will just help create a super bacteria or super virus. It will just make things worse over time.
Basically use any detergent... rinse well... keep it dry, and avoid the antibacteria soaps.

Pump running but water won't go through

I had the same problem for the longest time until today. I took a super soaker squirt gun (hand style with single pump on top) and shot it up the hole wear the water intake is for the pump (on the bottom of the white plastic part that has the trigger and water pump inside) while holding the trigger down to have the pump running, too. Did it a couple times for good measure. ;) When I tried it with the tank attached, it worked again. After that, I ran some rubbing alcohol through it to clean it up a bit but you could probably use hydrogen peroxide or distilled white vinegar as well. I'm guessing that the salt and baking soda mix eventually builds up and plugs it. Definitely plan on keeping the squirt gun handy in case it happens again. Hope this helps.

No water flow through the showerhead bracket

blow air through the part that attaches to the bracket and see if there is any air coming out if not you probably have a clog in the tube or the head.

Water pressure drops after a few seconds to almost nothing...

In the hand held shower head where the hose attaches to shower head. In the head there could be a flow restrictor. It may be rubber or plastic. In some cases you can remove it, or check if something is blocking it. Also try running the shower without the head on to see if there is some debris in the hose, and to check your water flow.
