Hi,
this fridge has no pump, but several outlet valves regulating water to icemaker and dispenser.
The first thing to do is allowing the fridge complete defrost. This will fix problems caused by ice inside water lines or outlet valves.
If that does not work, the first part to test is the main water valve, that is sending water to both icemaker and dispenser. This is located behind the refrigerator. The water valve is about four inches long.
Here is the part.

You can find hints and instructions on how to replace the valve here: 'Do-It-Yourselfer' stories about installing this part
The outlet valve is tested checking if it is opening and closing, and if there is continuity at the solenoids contacts (the ones in the valve). If the valve is fine, check the outlet valve located inside the fridge, below ice maker assembly: SUB 12001892 (Dual Outlet Water Valve Kit) This second valve is not present on all fridges from same model , but sometimes is replaced by an Y connector.
Before replacing valve do a complete defrost, and inspect water lines for blockage.
Regards.

Hello, I replaced the filter MSD2456GE and I wanted to now how long does it take for the ice or water to start?


you can start despensing the water right away, but dont drink it, after you replace the filter dump at least 2 gallons of water before you start drinking it, and the ice normaly takes 24 hours to make the first full bucket of ice, dump two of those before you use it!!

WATER LEAKING OUT OF FREEZER DOOR


The defrost drain hole in the bottom of the freezer has frozen over. Turn off the fridge. Remove the shelves and bins. Remove the rear panel of the freezer. You will see ice on the bottom rear of the freezer. Use a hair dryer to melt the ice,especially in the drain hole once you get through the surface ice. Once the drain hole is clear,pour a cup of hot water through the drain hole followed by 1/4 cup bleach. Re-install your parts and turn the fridge back on.

Ice and water don't work


This could be several reasons, water valve on back not working, thermostat in ice tray not working, heating element below ice maker not working, we just need to start with the dual water valve on back first. The side that feeds the ice maker needs the solenoid checked. I am ready to help you solve this, Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze
