Problem with water dispenser on my Maytag MFD2560HES

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?

SOURCE: Maytag ice maker: if the valve is the problem, is it expensive to

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.

SOURCE: Ice maker not making ice, water dispenser makes a loud clicking sound when filter is in.I already replaced the dual water valve and tried a new water filter.

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.

I have a Matag MSD2458GE refrigerator. Water dispenser on the door works but, the ice maker doesn't work at all. Seems no water reaching it. Needs new filter, but no ice before replace filter light.


According to your user's manual, "If water flow to the ice maker or dispenser decidedly decreases or if an objectionable taste or
odor returns,change the filter sooner than
recommended."
"Leave the refrigerator door open while removing and installing filters or plugs; this will prevent water
from flowing through the system and running into
the fresh food compartment.
• A newly installed water filter cartridge may cause
water to temporarily spurt from the dispenser"

Where do I find the ice maker inlet water valve or solenoid? The valve on the back of my fridge has only one hose going to both the water dispenser and ice maker and the water dispenser works fine.


Since there is water that flows to the water dispenser, the water valve is working. Now, there's a spout that water flows from to the icemaker tray. Look for it. It's located on the back wall inside the freezer and maybe behind the icemaker tray. Check and see if it's frozen. If so, defrost your freezer by turning the temperature gauge to off position. Wait a while until it's defrosted, then turn it back on.
Next, make sure that the metal wire is in down position.

If that doesn't work, your icemaker maybe defective and needs replacement.

Ice maker inop


Water valve for ice maker may be bad. there are two valves with one supply line, one valve controls the water dispenser and one for the ice maker. you can ohm out the solenoids, it'll ohm if its good and won't if its bad

I have a Maytag Plus side by side with Ice maker and water dispenser in the door. I have replaced both water valves and still cannot get water to the ice maker. The water to the water dispenser in the door...


First you need to make sure the ice maker works. One way to test it is to manually put water into the ice maker and wait a few hours and see if it pushed the ice out. If it did not you need to find out why the ice maker does not work. There are many reasons for that; that would be a new chapter. If the ice maker does dispense the ice but does not turn on the valve you would need to find a loose connection. There is a way to test the "water fill" after removing the ice maker, but it is a little tricky. Then also, sometimes the fill tube inside the freezer freezes; that is another problem al together.

My maytag is model MFD2560HES serial number


does the water dispenser work OK ? if yes , a try this : pour 3/4 of a cup of water into the ice maker, right into where the ejection fingers are. also , take all of the ice out of the ice bin. then , give the freezer time to freeze the water you have poured into the ice maker and see if the ice maker ejects the ice into the bin. if it does, it might reset itself and refill the unit and work normally.

Maytag MFD2560HES - water flow restricted - noisy fridge


The flow of water is controlled by a solenoid. Thus magnetic -- rather electromagnet which mones the vale from open & close, both in the ice-maker & the water dispenser.
Thus the valve which is activated when door closes, must have lost its earlier condition and must be making an irritable buzz whenever its on. Simply get the Valve assembly replaced, preferably from their authorized service center closest to your place of residence.
