Three different causes. Your water reservoir in the refer section is behind your crispers, this can freeze up if you have adjusted your temperatures in your refrigerator or if you have a thermostat or damper problem. Adjust your refer thermostat to a warmer setting and wait a couple of days to see if it works. 2: Bad water valve, easy to test with an electrical tester. Remove your backing plate behind the refer. Loosen your water line to the valve to make sure you have water pressure. Tighten water line. Remove screw holding valve to cabinent. Test for 120 volts at the two wires that go to your water valve solenoid,(if there are two solenoids then trace the water line to your reservoir, the solenoid above this connection is the one to test). Someone had to press the water dispenser while you are testing voltage. I usually disconnect the water line going to the reservoir to see if water comes out when the switch is pressed. If no water but you have 120 volts then replace the valve. 3: Bad dispenser switch or wiring. This is a lot more complicated to test. Some dispenser assemblies are incredibly complicated and difficult to get into to test. I usually recommend you call a technician if you have reached this point. Good Luckd, Appliance Specialists

Inside filter water dispenser suddenly stopped working. New filter removed and no working with or without filter . Water line is fine. Ice maker works.


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

Refrigerator dispenses ice, but does not dispense water?


Unfortunately, the housing that the water filter fits into is also the housing for the solenoid controlled water valve, and that is the most likely failure item.

My whirlpool suddenly stopped dispensing water.


most fridges stop dispensing water when you open the door. Find the door switch and make sure fridge interior light goes on/off when you manually press door switch. This would show you that the door switch was faulty.

If the water connection to the appliance is one of those watts flood-safe water lines, it may have stuck shut. I've seen this happen when the house water pressure is too high.

Does it still make ice?

If so, then the water connection is good, and either the switch in the water dispenser has failed or the water shutoff valve for the water dispenser has gone bad.

Some models have a problem with the water line getting frozen, such that simply leaving the light on in the water dispenser compartment overnight and/or manually defrosting the unit can get it working again.

I changed the filter for the water dispenser and after purging the water for awhile, the dispenser stopped working. What needs to be done to get the water dispenser to work again


Put the old filter back on , if water was fine . You never change filter just because a light comes on telling you to . The change filter light comes on after time or usage of dispensor .( Good way for manufacturers to make extra money ) . Change the filter only when water flow slows from dispensor .
