Keep holding down on the water dispenser lever till all the air gets out of the system. Turn the water supply valve all the way open.

Sounds like you have a constricted line somewhere.  I see them commonly in the cooler tank in the refer section.  Sometimes it gets iced up in there. 
Pull the lower-back panel in the refer. You should see a coil of plastic tubing (water line). Feel it, if it feels ice cold, not cool, then you need to defrost that line.
