Hi,

Make: Amana
Model#: ?
Approx age: ?

Fill tube can freeze up when the water is off for a while...



...crud might also get into the fill valve when the water is turned off and back on.

I cured it by aiming a hair dryer at the feeder tube.

If froze in the supply tube because your water inlet valve has a slow leak and freezes when it gets in the cold air in the tube and eventually stops it up. It will happen again. Replace the inlet valve.

More often than not, but they had an "prolonged water shutoff to replace sink faucet" and that can also do it.
