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

I have a GSH25JSTE refrigerator. the water has suddenly stopped worki, but the ice maker works fine. will the water stop if the filter needs to be replaced?


Todd, Harrie, I have exactly the same problem. Water suddenly stopped. Dispenses ice ok. The blue water solenoid inside the bottom back of the fridge is working. I've read that the water line can freeze! I plan to replace the water filter asap, due to age. Will let you know if that resolves this...

Refrigerator dispenses ice, but does not dispense water?


Unfortunately, the housing that the water filter fits into is also the housing for the solenoid controlled water valve, and that is the most likely failure item.

Frigidaire water stopped working...ice maker.dispenser fine


You probably have an obstruction in filter compartment. you should remove filter and inspect o rings etc. or anything that could have clogged it up. The only other thing that could be the cause is a bad water valve. Side by sides have a double water valve. one for water ,one for ice maker. You can check this by having someone flip ice maker arm down so it calls for water and feel water valve as it runs and possibly hear it too. Hope this helps.

Kenmore side by side water dispenser has stopped


Most likely need to replace the water inlet valve. The water supply line should be directly connected to it. There are 2 valves bracketed together, 1 for the ice maker and 1 for the water dispencer. You will probably have to buy both valves, but want to do this anyway as the second valve will fail soon. Hope this helps.

Intermittantly no water from inside water dispenser


I just started having the problem of no water dispensing from the in-door dispenser. I checked the operating manual and it suggested that the refridge temp may be set too low thus freezing up the water line. I have set the temp higher and we will see if that helps. I do not think that will do it because as you too note, the ice maker works fine. If the filter were an issue the ice maker would not refill either.

The same thing happened to me. If you pull the refrigerator out and remove the large silver panel, you will see the water lines on the left. The line going to the ice maker was fine, but the line going to the water dispenser was split. You may have the same issue.
