I have a 4-yr. old Kenmore (Whirlpool) side-by-side fridge with water & ice through the door. I broke the little plastic water dispenser tube off and replaced it with a FSP part ($55 !!) It worked for a few minutes while I was filling a pot with water to brew beer (I’m a home-brewer) and the water stopped. I still get water to the ice maker, but none to the water dispenser. Can you help?

Thanks,
Dave

Your fridge has a dual solenoid valve–one side serves the icemaker and the other side serves the water dispenser. The dispenser solenoid may have burned out but the icemaker side is still good. More troubleshooting information–check the continuity of the coil.
