Don't assume it is the dispenser till yall change out the water valve. It is dual in nature. On side does the water and the other side does the ice. The side that does the water has probably failed.

My 7-button Frigidaire Gallery ice/water module is not lighting up and not functioning. No ice or water is being dispensed. Wiring harnesses seem to be all intact.


Hi

If freezer door switch is not working, dispenser won't work. Does the freezer light go off & on when door is opened & closed? If you have a voltmeter, check that water valve is getting 120 volts when dispenser is pushed in. If no voltage, I would suspect the micro-switch that you hear clicking when you push in with a glass. Even though it clicks, the contacts could still be bad in it. However other than that loose/off wire, ribbon cable for front buttons off/loose, bad board, child lock are something that can make the dispenser dead.

I have a Kenmore side by side, not sure the model, but it's probably 10 years old or so. It has an ice maker with water, cube and crushed ice dispenser. The ice maker works fine, but it will not dispense...


Most of the time the bin has been removed and not put back in properly. When this happens ice blocks the drive motor. Remove the bin and turn the auger by hand make sure it will turn and is not jammed. Now with the bin out push the light button in that turns the light out and have someone push the button for ice while the door is still open the motor should turn in the back make sure thereis no ice blocking it. If it turns nothing is wrong with the motor. The clicking sound is usually the motor jammed by ice or the auger not engaged on the motor. hope this helps good luck

The water and ice dispenser stopped working on our Maytag side by side model MSD2456GEW. Nothing will come out and when you push the dispenser buttons there is no sound like there normally would be.


First thing to check is the water connection. If your water is connected using a saddle valve, it has probably developed a blockage. The saddle valve makes a pin-sized hole in the water pipe and it is prone to accumulating lime and water scale which slows and even blocks the water supply.

If you find that is the problem, replace the saddle valve with a 1/4" tee fitting and the problem should go away permanently.

In door water and ice cube not working


Water dispenser is a simple touch switch in door energizing a solenoid water valve behind ventilation grate above refrigerator. Water tube runs down into and ends at ice dispenser chute. Should hear solenoid click at top of fridge when activate water touch switch. Can unhook discharge side of solenoid valve temporarily to prove water output. If water dispenser tube acts blocked it could be frozen where it ends-look up the hole at the bottom of refrigerator control buttons.
Ice maker is totally different system. No clicking when push ice button but ice in bulk tray may mean the simplest of malfunctions: Ice bin not pushed in the last half inch if ice auger not lined up with drive pegs. There are hidden switches behind ice bin that need to be engaged or nothing will happen in the ice maker: no auger noise, no clicking, no new ice making. Ice bin will be flush with sheet metal if it is in the right spot. Also plastic juice rack won't hang properly if ice bin not pushed in all the way.

Water does not come out of the refrigerator door, but the ice works


Hello
Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

You said, When the water dispenser is pushed you can hear it try to work (a humming or pumping sound) but nothing comes out.
Below is a list of reasons that the water may not be working that are easily checked and remedyed by you! Is there a water shut off on your fridge?If so the dispensor will still make noise as if it is trying, even if it is locked!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

1. When did you change the internal water filter last?
You can remove the water filter and still use the water dispenser to check if the filter may be the problem!If nothing changes reinsert the water filter.

2.Flushing the water system after replacing filter
Use a sturdy container to depress the water dispenser bar until
the water begins to flow. Flush the water system by dispensing
and discarding 2 to 3 gal. (8 to 12 L) of water. Cleaning the
system will take approximately 6 to 7 minutes and will help clear
air from the line. Additional flushing may be required in some
households.
NOTE: As air is cleared from the system, water may spurt out of
the dispenser.

3.***Read this:
The dispenser lock (on some models)
Your dispenser can be turned off for easy cleaning or to prevent
accidental dispensing by small children and pets. To turn off the
dispenser, press the LOCK button. The indicator will appear
above the LOCK button and the ice and water dispensers will not
work. To unlock the dispenser, press the UNLOCK button until
the indicator appears. Then continue to dispense ice or water as
usual.

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.


4.The water dispenser will not operate properly
 Has the water system not filled? The water system needs
to be filled the first time it is used. Use a sturdy container to
depress the water dispenser bar until the water begins to
flow. Flush the water system by dispensing and discarding
2 to 3 gal. (8 to 12 L) of water. Cleaning the system will take
approximately 6 to 7 minutes and will help clear air from the
line. Additional flushing may be required in some households.
See the “Water and Ice Dispensers” section.
 Is the water shutoff valve not turned on or the water line
connected at the source? Make sure the water shutoff valve
is turned on and the water source is connected to the
refrigerator. See the “Water Supply Connection” section.
 Is the water shutoff valve clogged or incorrectly installed?
See the “Water Supply Connection” section. If clogging or
installation is not a problem, call for service or contact a
plumber.
 Is there a kink in the home water source line? If you find or
suspect a kink in the water line, call for service.
 Is there a water filter installed on the refrigerator? The
filter may be clogged or incorrectly installed. First, check the
filter installation instructions to ensure that the filter was
installed correctly and is not clogged. If installation or
clogging is not a problem, call for service.

Please remember to leave a rating before you go!
Thank you,
Huuum
