Water is no longer coming out of the water dispenser. The fridge is plumbed in and water is getting to the water filter and the ice maker but not coming out of the dispenser.

At back of unit I disconnected line and get water and I know that the switch works but no water comes out front?

When you push in the water dispenser do you hear two clicks? The first click is the switch in the front. The second click is the solenoid in the back. The solenoid has to open to let water through. If you don't hear that second click then it is most likely the solenoid.
If you remove the grill below the fridge doors you will find a plastic line and a coupling. disconnect the coupling. Push the dispenser arm in and see if water comes out. If it does then you have a frozen water line in the freezer door. Most likely it is frozen right below the ice cube dispenser door as it sometimes leaks out cold air if it does not shut properly. You can use a heat gun or hair dryer to thaw the line. Be careful not to melt any of the components.
If you do not get water out of the line at the coupling then it may be frozen in the fridge cooling coil. This is rare and usually only happens if you run your fridge on a very cold setting.

Cool water switch seems to be faulty, no water but ice maker seems to be working how do I get access to switch?

Your water line could be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line under the unit before it goes into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if it comes out there. If it does leave the door open till it thaws. Covering the opening with a blanket will prevent the loss of cold in the freezer. . GE makes a heater that will prevent this from happening again. The part number for this heater is WR49X10173.

disconnect the line to the water dispenser at the water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in and try the dispenser. if you hear the valve work but water doesn't come out, the valve is bad. If you don't hear the valve, the dispenser switch is bad

The water in the door that comes out by the ice is not cool at all. tap water is colder

Since the cooling tank is located in the refrigerator area behind the crisper drawers, the only explanation for less than col water coming from the water dispenser is that your fresh water line is connected to the hot water spigot instead of the cold one.

Not getting cool water from dispenser in door


if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

The water in the in-door dispenser is coming out hot

If this freezer is like most, the water going to the dispenser is looped around many times in the refrigerator section near the back. Make sure that this is still true. It must have a lot of water cable in the refrigerator section so that the water has time to cool down before it goes out the dispensor. If for some reason the water tube is touching either the compressor motor or another hot part of the external refrigerator it could cause it to be to hot to cool down in time during its travel through the refrigerator as well as it will start to warm up the refrigerator section as well.

Also, I am sure you have tested, but make sure that you are plugged into the cold water supply and not the hot water supply. Check the water at the connector and see what the temp is at that point before it enters the refrigerator.

My guess is that the coil of water tubing that is usually in the back of the refrigerator section has been either lessend in length or the water entering the refrigerator is too hot to be cooled down in time before it reaches the dispenser.

Warm Water out of water dispenser

Usually the coolness comes from a large coil of plastic tubing in the refer compartment that stores the water. Check that the refer compartment is cool enough. Also see if running a large glass or two becomes cool again and stays cool for a while. Usually the very first 1/2 glass may be warm until the "cool" water that is stored in the coil of tubing finally makes its way to the dispensor.
