Water won't dispense

The ice dispenser of my Maytag refrigerator is working fine, but the water dispenser won't dispense a drop of water!  The water pipe seems to be filling up ok, so what else could be the problem?

    Maytag Model MZ02766GEW side by side. Ice works fine but water takes 15 minutes to pour. I've changed the filter 2X. All the lights are working fine. Problem started after the house water was turn off for a week and house water meter was changed.

    Maytag Model MZ02766GEW side by side. The ice works fine but the water takes 15 minutes to start pouring. I've changed the filter twice. The problem started after the house water was turn off for a week and the house water meter was changed. All the lights are working fine.

    I have change the filter 2 times (new filters). The water takes 15 minutes to pour so water is coming to the filter.

    I have holding a container for 15 minutes for the water to pour.  Once started pouring I have collected several gallons of water to release any possible air in the line.  The problem was not solved.  Once I stopped collecting water.  I tried to collect water an hour later and again it took 15 minutes to start pouring.  I have done this several times but the problem is still there.

    I strongly appreciate your kind attention to help me to solve this problem. I am going to check your solution. Could you please help me to decide if it is the Solenoid or the pump. Once the water start pouring I can collect as much water as several gallons with no problem but an hour later it takes 15 minutes to start pouring again.

    We check the water pressure and it seems to be fine according to the Orange County Utilities.

Flush air from the water system the first time it is used and after replacing the filter. Air trapped in the water line or filter may slowly travel through the coiled water reservoir or water tank to the dispenser, and push any water ahead of it. This can cause the dispenser to drip. Water needs to completely fill the lines for all air to be cleared.

  • Use a sturdy container to press and hold the water dispenser bar for 5 seconds, then release it for 5 seconds. Repeat until the water begins to flow. Once the water begins to flow, continue to press and release the dispenser bar (5 seconds on, 5 seconds off) for an additional 2 minutes. Repeat if dripping starts again because air can re-enter from the water supply.
  • As air is cleared from the system, water may spurt from the water dispenser.
  • Be sure the refrigerator is connected to a cold water source.
One or two drops of water immediately after dispensing is normal. It may be necessary to hold the container under the dispenser for 2 to 3 seconds after the dispenser lever is released.

You could have a clogged filter or frozen filter. If you have a filter in the unit, remove it and put in the filter bypass plug that came with the unit. If you do not have the plug, remove the filter and while holding the frig door switch closed (has to be closed to send power to the valves) have someone call for water and see if water comes out of the line feeding the filter. If this does not prove one way or another what is going on, do you have a voltage meter we can do a quick test with?

Make sure the TAP and the filter is working properly. Get the tap checked. Also make sure the LED light is lit up.

Thanks

If water is to the valve then the valve is not opening.

When this happens you usually have to replace the solenoid that activates the valve.

Try first unplugging the fridge power cord for ten minutes.

If the valve is still stuck, the water dispenser solenoid must be tested and eventually replaced.

    If he problem started after the house water was turn off, and the house water meter was change, check pressure at water spply first.

    If water was cut for one week, and the water dispenser kept working with no water, then this is probably a faulty pump.

    Check all the lines if lines are not clogged, pump pressure is not sufficient, replace pump assembly.

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.

My Maytag msd2556ae will not dispense water throught the door. It makes ice just fine, and will dispense ice through the door, but not water. I've replaced the filter in the fridge, but no change.


There could be a blockage of its iced up. A complete defrost might fix it.
you'll have to leave it switched off with the doors open for 24 hrs.

No water coming from dispenser on Maytag MZD2766GE


You should defrost the freezer. The water line coming into the freezer is frozen and the water can't get through the little tubing.

Maytag MSD 2432GR Water not feeding into Ice Maker


one possible solution is that the ice maker water valve has failed (solenoid). I would try switching the wires on the water valves and see if water goes into the ice maker when you push the water dispenser button, if it does the valve is ok. If you go this far go ahead and fill the ice maker with water ( about half to two thirds full) switch wiring back as first found and see if maker will freeze and dump ice, if it does ok, if not the problem is probably in the ice maker.

Dispenser not responding


On mzd2766 there is a solonoid type switch that goes bad. Could be your problem too.
