No water or ice through door Ice maker is working. When fridge door is open and and bulk ice button is pressed ice is dispensed. When door is closed (or open) and water or ice button is pressed there is "contact" and the "trap door" opens but water is not dispensed nor does the ice dispenser become activated.

sounds like the dispenser assembly is not sensing that the trap door is opening fully, so it wont send power to the auger motor or fill valve. If you are pretty handy, you can disassemble the door and take out the dispenser assembly and try to take the assembly apart and correct the throw on the trap door. Otherwise, I'm afraid you need a new dispenser to the tune of about $250 parts and $225 trip and labor. Good luck!
