however if you are saying the water reservoir has not water in then the water inlet valve is bad,

Refrigerator Water Inlet Valve

Part #: W10159841

if the water reservoir is full but there is not any water flow over the cold plate then the problem is the pump:

You can try unplugging the unit for about 10 minutes and plugging it back in and see if it resets and works properly if not you will need to figure out which scenario above is happening and replace the appropriate part.
