I had the same problem and I replaced the door. I also found out that this problem is cause by water going into the two screws in the back of the Water/Ice dispenser. He is right; it was hard, but possible. Be careful when removing the Water/Ice dispenser. goodluck

You have two sides to your 67006531 Dual Water Inlet Valve, so it is very possible the side that controls the water flow for the dispenser is defective. Replace the 67006531 Dual Water Control Valve and I believe your fridge water will work fine.
I will be here should you have more questions, Thanks Sea Breeze
you can join the spliced wires back together if they are long enough. try to extend the wires by a inch if you can. the harness is built into the freezer door. so you would actually have to replace the freezer door. Those are the only 2 options.
Looking over your wiring diagram I would go straight for the freezer door light switch. Part number 241547901 or 1037569 Switch-light lamp,freezer door. It is used as an interlock to disable the dispenser controls while the freezer door is open. I would unplug refrigerator and remove switch by prying out of its slot in the door frame. Use an ohm meter to test both ways. It has a three wire connection that while door is open lights are on and dispenser control disabled. When door shuts lights off and dispenser should have power. Let me know what you find, Thanks, Sea Breeze
when you dispense ice or water, you are allowing the drip tray to overfill and the water builds underneath the tray until the water reaches the point were it will leak down the front of the door. the water will rust the panel beyond repair. you will have to replace the whole door at this point. hope this helps.
I just resolved an issue with my kenmore elite side by side refrigerator icemaker (model 106).
It was expensive because I took the long road to fixing the unit myself.
My problem: No water going up to the freezer water dispenser into the
icemaker but the water in front of the door working just fine.
-first thing i tried was the simplest. The Internet is clogged with
this miracle fix of using a hair dryer to melt the frozen water line
going to the dispenser output. This is highly unlikely for our model
since the water line is protected within the refrigerator frame.
-2nd thing I replaced my water filter (thinking that there wasn't
enough water pressure to trigger the solenoid valve. $40, and still no
-3rd thing was I tested for voltage going to the solenoid. No voltage
going to solenoid, so I wasted $30 for a new solenoid.....still no
-4th thing was I ordered a new IR sensor and receiver (since the
reciever end is where the relay that sends the voltage to the solenoid
to turn on and allow water to go up to the dispenser).
My IR sender and receiver appeared to be working flakey.
Installed, still no water. $58 BUCKS ON EBAY (EVERYWHERE ELSE $100+)
-I finally removed the freezer front little white door, I TURNED OFF
THE FREEZER SWITCH SO NO VOLTAGE WAS PRESENT, removed the release latch
underneath the freezer unit and disconnected, and removed the freezer
unit to inspect it further.
When I removed the protective white cover that covers the mechanical
wheel, I had a few parts come flying out of it. Turns out that the
wheel accessories were damaged. THERE ARE NO REPAIRABLE PARTS ON THE
FREEZER UNIT. I FOUND ONE ON EBAY FOR $39 BUCKS + $9 SHIPPING! $48
BUCKS, SWAPPED THE HARNESS AND BOTTOM COVER, AND IN 20 MINUTES, I WAS
BACK IN BUSINESS. STARTED MAKING ICE IN ABOUT A HALF HOUR!!!!!
when in doubt, replace the freezer unit for $48 bucks! 7 out of 10
times it will fix your problems. All techs replace the IR set at the
same time too which will set you back another $58 bucks.
Good luck! ;)
if you wich to disable the despenser for water in the door just unplug the electrial connector on the water valve it has 2 selenoids on it one is for water in the door it has the largest plastic line under the selenoid
just unplug the connector to that selenoid
you will still have ice and it will despense through the door
