I went to the internet and found parts select web site. Saw all of the possible fixes for my problem and read all of the other repair stories. My story actually became a journey that is still continuing. I first changed the water filter, but still no water at the dispenser. I next disconnected the coupling at the bottom of the freezer door that carries water to the dispenser and when the dispenser was depressed, water flowed at the coupling, but not at the dispenser. After reconnecting the coupling, I turned the freezer setting to 1 for 4-5 days, but still no water at the dispenser (possibly the line was frozen, but we had recently been away for a week and the water dispenser still supplied water at a freezer setting of 4). Now I am at the point of the journey into replacing parts one at a time to get water. First I ordered the dual water valve for the ice maker and water dispenser. I replaced this valve with instructions from Parts Select and still no water at dispenser. Next I ordered and replaced the switch at the dispenser lever and still no water. Next was the solenoid attached to the ice door, ordered, replaced and still no water at dispenser. I am now at the final part in this repair and that is the $132 circuit board. So I will be ordering this part soon and hopefully that will fix the issue.

Frost built up inside freezer door around the ice dispenser

I read other repairs listed that were related to my problem (found them very helpful). I ordered one of each part listed in the related repairs. I used a plastic putty knife/scraper to get the plastic trim piece to pull away from the freezer door (without marking the door or trim piece). I removed the plastic trim piece (it felt like it would break, but it didn't). I lifted up, and pull out, on the bottom of the control panel unit, and disconnected the wires. Next, I removed the four screws at the corners of the plastic ice chute housing and removed it. This exposes the dispenser door recess crank, recess door spring, recess door retainers (there are two, but I only bought one, no big deal, there was nothing wrong with the old ones), dispenser door solenoid assembly, dispenser door flapper/assembly, and switch. I replaced all of these parts, but I'm pretty sure only the dispenser door solenoid was causing my problem. I cleaned rust and mildew off all of the parts not being replaced and reassembled every thing in reverse order of the dis-assembly. The only thing that made this a little bit difficult was seeing what I was doing up inside the black plastic ice chute housing - the flashlight was a necessity (my wife had to hold it because I need both hands for the little bitty screws, especially those used at the little door retainer clips. Be really careful not to bend the recess door spring - it's easy to do (I bent the new one, and reused the old one).

I researched the issue on line and replaced the microswitch. I didn't test the part since it was so inexpensive and the whole process only took me about 15 minutes to complete. I didn't know "where" the microswitch was located until I watched your video, a very helpful tool. Thanks PartSelect, the part arrived 3 days after I ordered it.Mike in Spokane, WA

First of all, you must watch the video on the partselect.com site. The video helps a lot. Then, you can start disconnecting the power cable; unscrew the cover of the main control board. Disconnected the connections from the old board. Unplug the board with a help of a small plier. Installed the new board, connect all connections back. Put the cover back. Connect back the power cable. Unit is running as a brand new.

I changed the defrost thermostat and the evaporator thermistor and the main control board I didnt change the defrost heater because I tested it for continuity and it did have continuity, the freshfood section and freezer section thermistors had 16.3 k ohms + - 5 % so I didnt change those, and the problem got worst now the freezer section wont cool under 40 degrees and the fresh food section is about 50 - 60 degrees I might as well put the old board on at least the freezer was actualy freezing for a week or so, before it needed defrosting.

I unplugged the refrigerator and removed cover to the motherboard. I unplugged the ground wire and all other connections, unsnapped the board and removed. Snapped the new one into place and reconnected all connections. I used the old ground wires and simply removed the new from the new board. I plugged it up and bam it worked.

contacted partselect online,chose part from part listings and ordered the part online. PartSelect sent the part quickly and I changed it as soon as it came in. Took about 20 minutes total.This is a good web site and i will recomend it to others. The ice maker won't work now so I'll have to order the parts to fix that.

My water dispenser stopped working then the ice dispenser. Last it started making a clicking noise and stopped cooling and freezing.
