I had the original problem of no water at the dispenser and water on the floor at the back right corner of the fridge.  Problem was broken water tubing at the solenoid valve.  The repair person told me replacing the tubing was not a big deal, but the cause of the brittle tubing was.  Turns out that the circuit on control board that controls the fan blowing on the compressor had failed, therefore the fan ran very slowly (almost no breeze at all), the compressor ran hotter (a longer term issue if not fixed) and the water tubing that was near the compressor became brittle and broke.  So, both a control board and new tubing was the solution for me.
