Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.
Please provide me with the model number of the unit you are needing help with so that I can give you model specific information. The model number is ***** on a tag inside the refrigerator, look on the side wall inside the fridge and you will see a tag with the serial and model number listed on it as soon as I get that information I will get your answer prepared as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.

If you think I can fix it

ok below I have linked the tech data on the water inlet valve if you have a ohm volt meter you will want to check the coil resistances on the valve as specified on the sheet but odds are That is the part that is causing the problem and the most common issue. The valve has two solenoids on it one for the water dispenser and one for the ice maker so one can fail while the other still works, so just because the ice maker is still working does not mean the valve is good. If you don't have a ohm meter and you have not noticed anything freezing in the refrigerator section then just replace the valve. If you have noticed things freezing in the refrigerator let me know because that is a different issue and the water tank has frozen and the water can't dispense. The replacement coil is listed below and the instructions to replace it are on the data sheet below:
