SOURCE: Samsung RS2555SL humming noise
don't know this model specifically, but have had loads of problems with these samsung fridge-freezers. the no water in drinks dispensor is probably due to the water bottle at the bottom of the fridge being frozen. this is endemic with samsung the noise you hear is ice hitting fan. samsung use two systems for fan. the one i think you have is separate fans for fridge and freezer and a separate evaperator for fridge and freezer. take of the back plate of the fridge and you will find the fan mounted in it. disconnect the plug and socket connection. you will probably find ice build up round the fan blade. melt off with hot water. the bar you had showing on the "8" is a fault code - the most common fault being the defrost termination sensor. unless you are experienced, this is not really a diy appliance

It sounds like you have a burned out start relay on the compressor.
Pull the fridge out and remove the cover at the back. You will see the compressor. The relay plugs onto the compressor and the wires plug on to the relay.
Either the relay is burned out or the compressor is locked up. The only way to know for certain is to replace the relay. The relay is the problem on your model about 98% of the time. You can get one from any Whirlpool parts dealer for around $40, it will cost you around $280 for sears to replace it. The part number is 8201786.
Be sure you replace it with the correct replacement part, a fit-all or 3-in-1 start relay will work for a while but will damage your compressor over time.
Post back if you have any questions.

Own the same model, the icemaker and the dispenser work properly but the leak is top center of the refrigerator compartment.

This usually indicates that the compressor is working too hard and drawing too much current. The click that you hear is a safety shut-off. Possible causes of this are numerous and usually require having a professional come in to fix the issue, it can range anywhere from a faulty compressor to a bad start relay.
There is in most cases a temporary fix, it is called a hard start relay/capacitor. It is usually available from an appliance parts retailer for around $15 to $20. Installation instructions are included, just be sure to unplug your refrigerator first and make sure that someone following you can repair from where you left off. This relay assembly can normally get you up and running but it should not be used as a permanent fix. This will not correct for a refrigerant leak in the system.
Check your refrigerator owners manual before making any repairs or modifications to your refrigerator, there may be an extended warranty on the sealed system and compressor.

I am experiencing the same problem with my GE fridge. We have already tried the Turbo Cool, but nothing seems to help.
