The touch screen doesn't allow any changes. It doesn't register any time you press anything. It seems to be locked but isn't. Water and ice is dispensing fine.

If it for sure isnt locked you have a bad touch screen, but would need model info and brand to be more specific.

    Filter light on

    Water Filter Status Light and Filter Reset
    The filter reset control allows you to restart the water filter status
    tracking feature each time you replace the water filter. See "Water
    Filtration System."
    After changing the water filter, reset the status light. Press the
    OPTIONS button to enter Options mode, then press LOCK to
    initiate the reset, then press MEASURED FILL to confirm that
    you want to reset the status light. When the system is reset,
    the "Order" and "Replace" icons will disappear from the
    display screen.
    These instructions can be found in the=> GZ25FSRXYY2 User Manual . As for the dispenser and ice dispenser problem this could be related to a loose connection in the door where wiring attaches to control panel and/or where door wires go from door to cabinet also a defective pressure switch where glass is pressed to get water or ice. Can you tell me when this additional problem began?
    I am here should you need me, Thanks John Tripp Appliance 911

    On kitchen aid dishwasher, control lock is blinking and preventing the use of any other execute buttons. Can't start a wash .

    Which model KitchenAid dishwasher do you have? On some models, the Control Lock can be toggled on/off by holding the Energy Saver Dry touch pad for at least 4 seconds or until the Control Lock light turns on or off.

    On another model, the touch pad to press and hold is the 4 Hour Delay button. (On that model, you press and hold for 3+ seconds.) There is often a very tiny label below or on the touchpad indicating which key controls the Control Lock.

    If you haven't held the button for long enough, pressing the other touch pads will lead to the Control Lock light blinking 3 times if the Control Lock is active.

    If the press and hold method still doesn't work after several attempts, then you may have a problem with the control panel. The dishwasher may need repair.

    I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model number so that I can check if a different touch pad key is the correct one for the Control Lock.

    (the Control Lock feature keeps the dishwasher settings from being changed accidently or the unit started when it isn't needed. This can stop a child from resetting the dishwasher or the unit being started while you clean it.)

    Ice maker has stopped making ice. Infa-red light on inside doesn't seem to be working

    One of the causes of ice maker not producing ice is a bad solenoid valve allowing water to pass by and causing the water line to freeze inside the freezer. In other words, if the valve is not holding very well, it will allow water to pass in the line that supplies water to the ice maker. A small drip will ensue and slowly freeze in the line and eventually turn into an ice plug that will prevent water from filling the ice tray. Thawing out the freezer will not solve the problem, you will have to replace the solenoid valve.

    P.S.Test the solenoid valve coil and disconnect the line from the valve to verify that it is not allowing water to pass when not energized. Test the infra red module according the manufacturer's instructions if you have them at hand. If the solenoid valve is good and the infrared sensor system is bad , replace it (Infrared system) . The ice maker should be the last part to consider for replacement at this time.

    My model is 596-50699001 and the problem is does't do ice, and change a filter what can I do to fix it ? Thankyou for helpingg me

    There three problem that will not make your ice maker to make ice.

    If the water’s route is blocked or the solenoid doesn’t work

    If the bail wire is lifted—the ice maker won’t make ice.

    Your home’s water pressure must be strong enough to serve an ice maker.

    For your ice maker to maker ice,
    be sure the bail wire above the ice tray is in the down position.

    If the ice maker doesn’t make ice but you can see the arm swing into motion and you hear a buzz for about 10 seconds after it is finished, the water valve is asking for water that isn’t arriving. This means the valve and the solenoid are probably okay, but the water supply is not. Be sure the water supply line isn’t kinked behind or beneath the refrigerator (1/4-inch copper tubing is much better than plastic fill line).

    Also,check to see if something has caused ice to back up around the mechanism—this can cause the fill tube to freeze, blocking the mechanism. When ice cubes are small and seem to be getting smaller, it generally indicates a frozen fill tube.

    Check the water line that enters the back of the freezer for a blockage. Find the water shut-off valve behind the refrigerator or under the sink, turn it off, unscrew the copper line from the back of the refrigerator, put the copper line in a bucket, turn on the valve, and see if pressurized water pours out.

    The water line attaches to a solenoid at the back of the refrigerator and then travels to the ice maker. The solenoid may be defective or may not be receiving power. You can try removing the sediment screen inside the solenoid and flushing it with water to clean it, and at the same time you can inspect any seals or diaphragms to ensure that they are sound. Unplug the refrigerator first.

    Check the tap valve; a bad tap valve may cause the problem where the ice maker supply tube connects to the water pipe. If necessary, replace the inlet valve and the tap valve. For the tap valve, use the type that requires you to drill a 1/4-inch hole (as opposed to the “self-piercing” type). You can do this yourself, or call a repair person or plumber to install an inline water filter when replacing the valve.

    Thanks for contacting Fixya.

    Water just started running without anything being touched.

    There is a button that gets pushed when you push in the water lever on the door. That button is probably stuck, or it could be broken and sending constant voltage to the water valve. You will have to remove the dispenser cover to see the switch.

    Ice maker not getting water after changing filter

    Check the following:
     Is the freezer door closed completely?
     Is the ice storage bin installed correctly?
     Is there ice in the storage bin?
     Has the ice frozen in the storage bin?
     Is ice stuck in the delivery chute?
     Has the wrong ice been added to the storage bin? Use only
    cubes produced by the current ice maker.
     Has the ice melted around the auger (metal spiral) in the
    ice bucket?
    Dump the ice cubes and clean the ice storage
     Is the ice dispenser stalling while dispensing “crushed”
    Change the ice button from “crushed” to “cubed.” If
    cubed ice dispenses correctly, depress the button for
    “crushed” ice and begin dispensing again.
     Has the dispenser arm been held in too long? Ice will stop
    dispensing when the arm is held in too long. Wait 3 minutes
    for dispenser motor to reset before using again.

    The ON/OFF switch is located on the top right side of the freezer
    To turn the ice maker on, slide the control to the ON (left) position.
    To manually turn the ice maker off, slide the control to the OFF
    (right) position.
    NOTE: Your ice maker has an automatic shutoff. The ice maker
    sensors will automatically stop ice production, but the control will
    remain in the ON (left) position

     Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice. Discard the
    first three batches of ice produced.
     The quality of your ice will be only as good as the quality of the
    water supplied to your ice maker. Avoid connecting the ice
    maker to a softened water supply. Water softener chemicals
    (such as salt) can damage parts of the ice maker and lead to
    poor quality ice. If a softened water supply cannot be avoided,
    make sure the water softener is operating properly and is well

    The Dispenser Lock (on some models)
    Your dispenser can be turned off for easy cleaning or to prevent
    unintentional dispensing by small children and pets.
    NOTE: The lock feature does not shut off power to the product, to
    the ice maker, or to the dispenser light. It simply deactivates the
    dispenser levers. The ice and water dispensers will not work.
    Style 1: Press the LOCK BUTTON to lock the dispenser. Press the
    UNLOCK button to unlock the dispenser.
    Style 2: Press and hold the LOCK OUT button to lock the
    dispenser. Press and hold the LOCK OUT button a second time to
    unlock the dispenser.
