This will require trouble shooting with power present and a qualified individual should do this. Verify power at the plug and trace to the board. It could be a bad wire, loose connection, open cavity thermostat, or a failed board assuming power is available and the fuse is good.

SOURCE: Hi, I have a Kenmore
This problem is caused due to these reasons.
1)Bad water inlet valve,make sure the water reservoir in the refrigerator is not frozen and check if 120 VAC is coming to the water valve solenoid while the water dispenser calls for water.
2)You have two separate solenoid valves. One feeds the ice maker the other one feeds your water dispenser. You can shut the water off, take the hose off and clean the strainer. or you can check for voltage going into the solenoid, press for water and check power going into the solenoid that is feeding your water dispenser.
3)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 try a hair dryer blowing where the water line is at the dispenser for a few minutes.Water pipe in the freezer door was frozen then this will cause this issue.
4)If the refrigerator water filter,remove it.Make sure the sediment filter is not blocked.
5)Clean saddle valve,shut off valve if it is frozen melt the blocks of ice.
6)See if water is getting to the door. You have to track the water line and disconnect it from the bottom of the door. Then water that might come and hit the paddle to call for water. If you do get water then you have an issue with the tubing in the door. If still no water trace your lines back into the fridge compartment and make sure it is not kinked or even frozen.
7)Switch off your refrigerator for 8 hours or more and let the fridge get warm and melt all the frozen ice.Then switch it on and check.
8) If still the problem persist dispenser switch is defective

We also have a kenmore side by side refrig and had the same problem,,,
FIRST, CHECK THE CONNECTION BETWEEN NEW FILTER AND ATTACHMENT POINT,,
IF THE RUBBER GASKET CAME LOSE DURING THE CHANGE, IT MAY BLOCK THE PATHWAY FOR WATER TO FLOW
NEXT, CHECK THE WATER/ICECUBES/CRUSH LEVER SWITCH TO MAKE SURE IT IS NOT PART WAY BETWEEN ONE OF THE SETTINGS,
NEXT,CHECK TO SEE IF YOUR UNIT HAS A RESET BUTTON,
THE RESET BUTTON IS USUALLY IMMEDIATELY INSIDE THE OPENING WHERE THE WATER/ICE DISPENSES AND UP, YOU WOULD NEED TO PLACE YOUR FINGER RIGHT DIRECTLY UP BEHIND THE FRONT PLASTIC COVER, AND IT'S GOING TO BE A VERY SMALL BUTTON, I AM NOT SURE WHICH SIDE ON YOUR UNIT R OR L, BUT DIRECTLY UP IN THE CORNER,,
I HOPE ONE OF THESE HELPS !! angi

It means that either the water inlet valve is faulty or the inlet water tube is blocked/frozen. Also check the water inlet valve screen for any debris. If the water and ice still doesn't dispense then you would need to check the continuity of the water inlet solenoids (Water inlet valve). When the solenoids receive a signal from the processor, they route water to the water filter, cooler, and ice maker; make sure the wiring to the solenoid is fine, if wiring is fine then check the continuity. Turn off the power to refrigerator and use a multimeter to check the continuity of the water inlet valve/solenoid.
Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.
