Question about Maytag MFD2560HES Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator
The water dispenser on my Maytag MFD2560HES only works intermittently. The ice maker seems to work fine. However, sometimes the dispenser works fine, and other times it spurts out a fingerfull of water, then it sounds like something slams shut (possibly the valve closing), then stops working. When I press the button and it isn't working, I hear a click and a subtle humming sound. Solutions?

Make sure the IM is in the ON position and free to move. Check the water supply from the valve to the IM for obstructions(Ice in fill tube). When the IM cycles there should be a buzz/humm for 45 seconds when it is calling for water. The valves are not expensive but you want to be sure that is the problem befor you purchase.

The gear that drives the mechanism that moves the ice out and allows fresh water to come in is damaged. In some cases the ice tray needs to come out so the ice cubes in the system can be removed by letting them actually turn back to water. Once you have cleaned it of old ice, try it again. Most likely a waste of time though.
What I have done to save money is find an old refrigerator someone wants to toss and pull the ice maker out. Chances are they have the same plug and wiring. Better if you just go get a new ice maker unit from where they sell parts for your refrigerator. It is easy to remove. usually about three screws or so. about two on top and one or more on the bottom side.
