Sounds like the water has been turned off, or the solenoid valve (located at water entrance to fridge) has failed. you should hear a solid snap from that solenoid when water is called for by pressing the dispensing switch. You can test the solenoid by unplugging the fridge and measure the resistance across the solenoid terminals. If it measures 200-500 ohms it is ok. if it measures open the solenoid has failed and needs to be replaced.
You will need to open it up and inspect the brushes carefully. Look for a little copper wire, this wire needs to be firmly attached to both the brush and the little disc at the other end of the spring. Clean the brush out with a can of electric cleaner to free any dirt that has built up around the gears.
One of the counter bakance springs OR the adjuster for it let go. I had a similar thing where the adjuster which was a thin metal "T" thing that screwed up into the spring as an adjuster folded and fell out of the spring.
Remove the bottom dress cover at the tope kick of the dishwasher. The springs are all accessable right there. The problem will be obvious. Just compare the two sides.
I had to beef up the "T" adjsuter in mine as it was too weak to continue holding in the spring.
One turns it into more or less coils of the spring to adjust the counterbalance.
make sure the evaporator fan is working, open door and push switch in if fan works make sure opening from freezer to fridge is not blocked. if door was removed make sure light in fridge is shuting off if temp in fridge is in the 50 degree range your light switch is not being deactivated check spacers between door and hinge . sometimes when door is removed a spacer will fall on floor and light switch is not hitting door
