Water and ice is not dispensing <24 hours after my first post on your site....problem had existed for about a month, then it started working (continuously), but now it stopped again. Symptoms are:

- 'water', 'crushed', 'cubed' buttons and associated indicated lights work.
- 'quick ice' button does not light-up when pressed.
- On water, when dispenser is engaged, no water comes out.
- On crushed & cubed, when dispenser is engaged, freezer flapper opens, but ice auger does not turn and ice does not come out.
- ice maker seems to be working.

(note, I also have the problem with ice forming in the refrigerator section....which I'm pretty sure is unrelated.)

It sounds like you might have an intermittent problem with the dispenser interface. Here is the part for your machine. Now tell me about the ice in the fresh food section.

I agree with jeff1. Did you check to see if it was the defrost pan? That's what it looks like.
