Water abruptly stopped dispensing. Changed water valve in back, but that did nothing. Water line seems primed and water appears to be flowing when button depressed, but no water comes out. Front spout is "L" shape and does not appear to screw off to check for blockage?

There is an electric water valve, usually at the lower back of the appliance which would appear to be stuck open and would need to be replaced OR the switch in the dispenser area is stuck in the closed position. Try disconnecting the wiring to the valve and if that stops it then most likely the dispenser switch is defective, If not then the valve is likely stuck open. There should also be a small valve in the water supply line, under a sink or etc. that you can shut off to stop the water flow with until you get the other problem daiagnosed and fixed.
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

If you can't hear the solenoid on the water
inlet valve(it's on the back where the water supply hooks up) when you try the
water then the water switch on the dispenser is at fault.

Disconnect the water line at the water inlet valve on the back and try the dispenser to see if water comes out there and see if you hear the valve work. If the water comes out here then the problem could be the filter. The mesh screen in the water inlet valve could be stopped up. Disconnect the water supply line to see the screen. You may have to remove the cardboard backing to see the valve on the back of the freezer.
It sounds like you need to replace your water inlet valve , it is a dual valve for ice and water in the door and they go out often , the solenoid is not opening anymore , it is located where you hook up the water line.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
most likely you have a frozen water line to the dispenser. it could be inside the back of the refr section that is just too cold or inside the freezer door. either one can be tested by allowing each to warm up for 15 to 20 minutes and see if you get water thru door. do you hear a buzz from the water valve coil when you push the dispenser lever? if so then the water line is probably frozen somewhere.
