Hi,

I see your installation date has come and gone, but if you still need to hook up the water you can find an "ice-maker kit" from almost any home improvement store (such as Lowes, Ace, Home Depot etc....) This includes 1/4" bendable copper tubing and a valve that will tap a near by cold water supply pipe. If you find a kit with plastic tubing, I would steer clear and find the bendable copper. Plastic tubing kits are notorious for springing leaks. Buy some extra compression nuts and washers for the tubing while you are there, it may take more than one try to get a waterproof seal if this is your first time hooking up water and ice dispenser.

When hooking up the tubing to the back of the refridgerator, leave a couple coils of slack to allow the refridgerator to be pushed in or pulled out without straining the connection. There is usually a small clamp on the refridgerator back to hold the tubing steady, make sure you use this. This will help ensure a leak free connection. After you have the tube hooked up, push the refridgerator all the way back, then pull it back out and check for leaks. Sometimes the tube will start dripping a bit after the refridgerator is moved, so this step helps ensure you won't have leak problems.

No water


Try replaceing the water filter, and / or check the water supply for adequit volume and pressure, by disconnecting the water supply line from the back of the refrigerator and run a couple of gallons of water into a bucket just to make sure the line is clear.
If the water supply volume and pressure is good, reconnect the water supply line, install the new water filter and try dispensing water, this should fix it, or check that the water supply silenoid valve for proper operation when dispenser lever is depressed.
GOOD LUCK !

I need details on how to install Maytag built in dishwasher


Hello Ted, Without the exact model number, it is difficult to provide the correct installation instructions for your specific Maytag dishwasher.

I can provide you with a link to the Maytag site where you can enter in your model number and download an owners manual and installation instructions/guide that will provide you with the step-by-step needed to properly install your dishwasher.

http://www.maytag.com/support/manuals_literature.jsp

The installation instructions will provide the proper wiring, water supply inlet plumbing and connection of the water discharge line, as well as all of the dimensions needed for clearances for the countertop and cabinets.

If you're trying to install an older dishwasher, you can also give them a call at 1-800-344-1274 and have your complete model number available, so they can provide you the correct manuals and instructions.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Kenmore Coldspot Model 70162990 - not making ice


You've either got a bad timer on the ice maker or the water valve is defective. You need to verify that the timer is moving first. If it isn't try pushing in on the dial on the end of the ice maker. It is under the white square cover at the end of the ice maker, usually towards the door, but in some units it points to the left side wall. If it begins to run when you do that, then the timer is broken. If not then I would say that the valve is defective.
