Question about Whirlpool GS6SHEXNL Side by Side Refrigerator
I had the same problem. Ice maker works fine. Removed the kick plate at the bottom of the fridge to expose the water line. I disconnected it and then pressed the dispense button. Water pumped out of the line so i know water was getting all the way to the freezer door. I went overkill but it worked. I removed the freezer door and placed it outside. (disconnected the power to the door by disconnecting the plug at the top. and then removed two screws/bolts at the top and the door lifts up and off) I set the door on a patio table with the bottom facing up. I picked up some 16 gauge wire ($6 at Home Depot) and ran it up the water tube from the bottom of the door. The bottom is more of a straight shot up the water line. I also took a turkey syringe used to inject juice into a turkey and i shot very hot water up the line with the door upside down. This allowed water to run up the line and unfreeze it if it was frozen. I let it sit outside for 30 minutes and put the door back on and now it works like a champ. The line was either frozen or it was obstructed. The water line is surprisingly small. Took less than an hour and I now have water again. Not tough at all...

Either your water tank in the fridge froze up, the waterline that goes up the freezer door from the bottom hinge froze, or the switch that your glass hits is damaged. Do you hear any humming or noises when you put your glass up to get water?

mine did same thing. What is happening is the Water Line in the freezer door is freezing.
SOLUTION. Leave the freezer door open and turn off the freezer for a night. Be sure to dump out all of your ice cubes too.
In the morning it will work like new. To prevent it from happening again, open the FRIDGE door and use the electronic controls to raise the temperature of the freezer. You had it too cold before...thats why your water line froze in the first place.

The refrigerator has a dual water valve. The water dispenser side of the valve may be defective, but, my experience has shown the problem to be in the water reservoir, located in the bottom of the fresh food section, which, might be frozen or the water line through the freezer door is frozen. Scenario #1: Remove the kick panel, disconnect the water line from the fitting. Have someone depress the water actuator, while, holding a cup to collect any water which may come through the line. If water comes through the tube. The problem is a frozen water line in the door. My best advice for this problem is to remove any frozen goods from the door. Take a piece of cardboard and seal the freezer section of the refrigerator with any kind of tape. Make sure you tape the door switch in the closed position, so, the refrigerator will continue it's normal operation. The frozen goods will remain frozen and the fresh food section will be okay. Leave the freezer door open. You might want to put a towel under the door. The water line will thaw. It might take 15 minutes. It might take 3 hours. Periodically check the water dispenser operation. When the water flows remove the cardboard. Scenario # 2:if, after disconnecting the water line and depressing the water actuator there is not water. The reservoir is frozen. Use a hair dryer to that the reservoir. You will have to remove at least a couple of crisper drawers to perform this action. The cause of a reservoir freeze is too little stuff in the drawers or too low a temp in the crisper drawer area.
