Might the water not work if the filter needs to be replaced?
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 5 months ago

OK first replace or make sure the filter is good, but if it makes ice it should be fine. Often the tube freezes in the door liner. Open the doors and remove the kick grill you will see the dispenser tube out of the door hinge. It goes to a quick disconnect, disconnect it there and then briefly press the dispenser. If water shoots out of that tube the line is frozen in the door. If that is the case set the freezer to +8 and the refrigerator to 40 for 1 day and it should work fine again. If water does not come out of that tube when you press the dispenser the water valve is likely bad.

Frig still makes ice.
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 5 months ago

Yes check that line then. It is likely frozen in the door liner.

No. This looks too complicated.
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 5 months ago

Ok if you can not do that then just set the settings up to the warmest for the freezer and see if it clears up in a couple days.
