Question about Kenmore 57029 Side by Side Refrigerator
The actual model number is either 55251 or 56261
Check the ice bin for an ice jam and clear it. The motor is running as you can hear it hums. The couplings are dis-aligned causing the auger not turn or a gear inside the motor is broken.
Open the freezer door and remove the ice container then remove the two screws attaching the cover to the motor housing.
Remove screws securing the motor bracket and allow the motor to drop down. Press the ice dispenser button then check whether the drive shaft turns or not; if it does, hold the drive shaft and check it if it can be easily prevented from turning. Replace the motor if it hums but the drive shaft is not turning or if stops easily when held indicating that a gear is broken or the motor is just humming and not running at all.
Check the coupling if the motor turns out to be running fine and drives the shaft properly.

Need the model number off the label inside the fresh food section. The number you have provided is not a correct or complete number. The label will have model and serial number both.

Hello,Your water line could be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the
line at the bottom 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.
If it doesn't come out there disconnect it at the water inlet valve and see if it comes out there. The valve could be bad.
kindly check the water filter if it's in good shape if not it has to be replaced.

Check that the dispenser is not locked. Some models have a lock feature that deactivates the dispenser levers and control buttons. The lock button is on the dispenser front cover. This feature controls unintentional dispensing during cleaning. Press the "Unlock" or "Locked" button to reactivate the dispenser levers and allow dispenser function. You may need to hold the button for 2 to 3 seconds. http://whirlpool.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/whirlpool.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=110&p_created=1147725595&p_sid=lTIkCMOi&p_accessibility=0&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9MzEmcF9wcm9kcz0xOTkmcF9jYXRzPSZwX3B2PTEuMTk5JnBfY3Y9JnBfcGFnZT0xJnBfc2VhcmNoX3RleHQ9d2F0ZXIgZGlzcGVuc29y&p_li=&p_topview=1
