On my whirlpool fride when the water line for the fridge is turned on water flows out of the water dispenser without having the dispenser lever depressed and when the lever is pressed you can hear the switch click but it makes no difference to the water flow, but the ice maker and lever function properly.
ANSWER Hello Brad. Test for power to the water valve. If none is there, you will replace the water valve. If there is power there, you check the switch and see if it needs to be replaced. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
