    I have a Samsung RS21DCNS. The ice dispenser is working, but the water dispenser is not working. However, unlike the previous writer, when I remove the kick plate, disconnect the water tube and press the water dispenser, no water comes out of the end of the hose. Any suggestions?

Just below the doors of the frig is a kick plate. remove the kick plate. on the left youll see a water line that goes into the freezer door. there is a connection for that hose just under the freezer. disconect the hose the press the water dispenser. if water comes out of the hose then the water line is frozen inside the door. you can use a hair dryer to warm up the dispener area both from the front and from the back, inside the freezer, it will take about 30 min to defrost. but, if you get no water from that hose then you need a new water valve. more than likely its frozen in the door. thats common on ge models

LG LRSC21934 ice maker/water dispenser doesn't work

If your house water supply to the refrigerator is poor it is most likely the cause of the water dispenser and ice maker not working. If you hear the water valve humming when the water dispenser is depressed and no water is dispensed it is most likely poor or restricted water flow to the refrigerator.
If you live in an older home the water supply shutoff valve to the refrigerator is usually in the basement or under the kitchen sink. Many shutoff valves are called a saddle valve and the valve is secured onto a cold water pipe and as the valve is turned clockwise a pin punctures the water pipe allowing water to flow. Saddle valves often become clogged with minerals and can completely block water flow to the refrigerator,. If the valve is corroded on the outside it should be replaced. Ice maker installation kits are available at most hardware stores. Copper water line kits are preferred. Cost is under $25.00. If the Saddle valve is in good shape they can be taken apart and cleaned. Be sure to shut off the main house water and drain pipes before attempting to clean.
Newer homes may have a water box in the wall behind the refrigerator. Sometimes these can become clogged with mineral deposits as well.

Hope this helps.

The sadle valve is located on the copper pipe where the tube attaches to your water pipe in the house. Shut the water off at the saddle valve. Remove the hose from the rear of the frig on the water inlet valve and put it into a pail. Tunr the water on at the saddle valve and see how fast the water comes out. Some times if the saddle valve is installed on the bottom of the copper pipe they will get corrosive and restrict water flow. Open and close the valve several times to make sure it is clear and reinstall the hose to the rear of the frig. Turn the water back on to see if it works.

Water despenser

The water dispensing valve may not be functioning, if the valve buzzes or hums when the water dispenser is pressed the valve may be mechanically deficient, if there is no sound whatsoever the switch for the dispenser,the dispensing valve coil or its electrical connections may have failed.

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.

No water but ice is fine

remove the filter and reinstall , it may not have seated into the filter housing it will take a little while to fill the filter cartridge as you hold in the water paddle

you also may have a water valve problem, something in the water valve that goes to the water in the door that is not allowing the water to come through the valve
