You have a faulty valve on the dispenser.. possibly just a faulty micro switch keeping the valve open.
Neither are expensive.. but getting into the part of the freezer to change them, might be a bit tricky, as manufacturers always have hidden screws, to deter the uninformed, or to cause them to break more, and then call in the professionals. (them)

SOURCE: Kenmore Refrigerator stopped dispensing water

Either your water tank in the fridge froze up, the waterline that goes up the freezer door from the bottom hinge froze, or the switch that your glass hits is damaged. Do you hear any humming or noises when you put your glass up to get water?

SOURCE: kenmore elite HE 3t washer

F32 is the code for a Water Level Switch Failure.
1. Remove the top panel from the washer by removing the three screws in the top back of the washer.
2. Inside the back right corner is a round plastic box, fastened to the side with a plastic snap. In will have a wire connector and a small, rubber hose connected to it.
3. Check to make sure all the connector wires are connected and tight. Unplug washer for 30 seconds to reset it. If the cycle fails still with the F32 code, you'll need to replace the Water Level Switch.
4. If the Water Level Switch does not eliminate the F32 code, it then the machine controller may have failed.

I resolved the problem on my Kenmore Elite model 106.55616400 by removing the drip tray, taking out two screws that hold the panel, and disconnecting and reconnecting the wires from the panel to the board. Unplugging the refrigerator did not work.

SOURCE: Kenmore elite - Water dripping from freezer to refrigerator

Your refrigerator has a defrost drain blockage behind the evaporator in your your freezer compartment. Some models like yours have leak in the turns as the water leaves the freezer. I recommend that you unplug and remove the cover to the evaporator and check the defrost condensate tray below the evaporator. A wet vacuum cleaner and poring a solution with clorox in the drain will help you clean locate the leak and where the blockage may be downline.. I do have the manual on yours and can help you solve this. Some times this is a factory defect and I can help you solve the freezing drain problem. Let me know, Sea Breeze

Water dispenser inside fridge and ice maker in freezer part in bottom both quit working.


There can be many reasons for no water supply. Line feeding the refrigerator is clogged or blocked. The water control valve that turns water to ice maker and dispenser is defective or the water filter located inside your refrigerator is in need of change. I will be here to help you go through the steps. Let me know when you are ready, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Water has stopped coming out of the filtered water dispenser


I just had this same problem and finally figured it out. The water in the line was frozen because my freezer was turned to 6 (note on inside of freezer says recommended temp is 4) so I turned the freezer to 4 and the refrigerator to 3. Next day the water was flowing.

Hope this fixes yours,

Internal water dispenser stopped working


I lowered the temp on the freezer to 4 overnight, by morning water dispenser is working fine. I think that when we changed the temp to 7 (in order to make more ice ) it froze the water pipe going to the dispenser. I am going to keep both fridge and freezer at 5 ,and hope this will not happen again.

Kenmore Elite - Interior water dispenser stopped working


Frozen water tank, some of these had an insulation kit that will prevent this from happening. Make sure you have water coming out of valve to tank, if so it will probley be a frozen tank. Make sure fridge is on factory settings. If it doesnt thaw out, check into the frozen tank kit...

How to remove the speaker from a Kenmore Elite Refrigerator. 
Our Kenmore Elite fridge has been beeping since we bought our house 9 months ago. There's nothing apparently wrong with it, the filters have been replaced etc. Sears said it would be a minimum of $300 to replace the electric panel (and my thought was that whatever is causing it could happen again!). We were ready to buy a new fridge.
Tools:  thin spatula or hand held flat razor (for scraping paint) flat screwdriver  soldering iron
I pried open the water dispenser with a razor thin spatula (i began with just my hands). the electronics then turned off. When the dispenser came completely off an electronic board dangled down. 
On the board is the word 'buzzer' with two soldered points, underneath was a round black object, obviously the speaker. My husband and decided that if we pried the speaker off with just a screw driver, it may break the whole board. So we got out the soldering iron and one at a time, heated both soldering points labeled "buzzer." As each heated we used the screwdriver to pry the speaker off the board. 
The speaker gently slipped off the board into our hands. We placed the board back in its place and snapped the water dispenser cover back into place. The whole thing took 2 minutes. The electronic lights all came back on the dispenser. Everything works perfectly. There's one less beep in our house!
