Solenoid is in back, in the compressor compartment. Follow the water tubing to the fridge and you'll find it -- it connects to the water valve.

I believe we have a communications failure captain Samurai!!!!!!

Our apprentice said he replaced the water/ice maker dual solenoid in back and can hear it buzz when water dispenser is pressed in front so thinks there's a solenoid in the door that isn't operating.

BMMC, the only solenoid in the dispenser unit in the door is the solenoid that opens the ice chute door, has nothing to do with the water dispenser.

Sounds like the famous GE frozen water line in the door to me...... Probably going to need one of those GE dispenser heater kits.
