Just hooked up Maytag fridgerator side-by-side doors w/ice and water dispenser on the door . Connected the water supply and plugged it in and it is now running and getting cold but the dispenser doesn't make water ? Is there something I forgot to do? Yes water is turned on...

I would guess that you need to purge the air out of the lines and system for it to work correctly. You can hold down the water dispenser for awhile to help, but if you do nothing, it should purge itself over the next few days.
In some cases, living in an area with extreme humidity, the ice dispenser door can stick open ( a small flap in the chute that delivers ice into the glass). This can cause a problem. The grinder in the dispenser sounds like it is frozen. Try using a HEAT GUN (hair dryer) on a low setting to defrost the dispenser DO NOT TRY TO MELT THE PLASTIC! Or a quicker solution, Unplug the refrigerator and pour water thru the dispenser CAN BE A MESS try to catch in a bucket or pan. Remove the dispenser from the door clean and dry as necessary and reinstall.
Try using cube ice to see if this helps. The occasional cup of cubes will dislodge stuck ground ice in the dispenser.
ABOVE ALL BE CAREFULL THE GRINDER CAN CUT YOUR FINGERS OFF. ELECTRIC SHOCK IS A DANGER AS WELL.
I have a Maytag model 2556 AE refridgerator. The ice maker works but the ice and water dispenser, the light and everything else on the front of the unit doesn't work. Is there a fuse that operates this or is there other problems? Thank you Bob
Check to see if you have frost on the back panel of your freezer in your fridge. If you do your coil is frozen over and you'll have to defrost your freezer. I just did mine cause mine wasn't cooling properly on my fridge side. If it is that it's going to fill the pan under your fridge and overflow.
