No water from dispenser Matag New filter solenoid valve working, tube to dispenser seems to be blocked


Hello Hans;


My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

There could be several areas that would effect your water dispenser not working:

1.) When you depress the water dispenser do you hear a 'Click'? If not you have a bad water dispenser contact switch.
I would send you a diagram but I do not have your model number.

2.) In the lower back of your fresh food section is your water dispenser water tank. At times this can freeze near the freezer section. Look in the lower corner of the freezer & your fresh food section for ice build-up.

3.) You could have a bad water filter. This does happen often. Remove the water filter and test you water dispenser.

4.) Do you have water leaking out of the bottom of your dispenser door? If so you have a split in the tubing in your water dispenser door.

5.) Is your ice maker working? Often the water valve to your refrigerator becomes plugged up and you do not get sufficient water pressure 60 PSI to operate your water dispenser solenoid valve.

Maytag mfi2568aes control panel


If the refrigerator water dispenser is not working the water supply tube in the door may be frozen. This will be difficult to track down. Look for a connection point at the bottom or top of the door, try removing the hose and blowing air through it and out the dispenser. Next it could be the water valve that sometimes has twin valves for ice and water combined, third is low pressure into the line (bad main valve) or clogged filter... you need about 20psi for function. Last is the door switch, when the freezer door is opened the freezer door switch does two things, it turns on the light in the freezer and turns off the ice and water dispenser. If the door switch fails the dispenser will not turn on. The switch can be checked for continuity with an Ohm meter. If it doesn't have continuity it should be replaced.

Bought a new Maytag side by side. Will not put out water. Tried the 5 sec on and 5sec off to flush the air out, still didn't work. What next?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
First off you need to make sure the freezer door is CLOSED and water filter is properly installed in the filter housing. Without a model number I can not tell you the exact location of the filter. There is a water lock out function of the water filter housing that will prevent proper water flow until the filter is installed correctly or removed completely. Also... there is a water tank / reservoir that has to be filled completely with water before you will see any water at the spigot. Please pass your model number so I can better assist you or call the Maytag Sercive Center so they can walk you through the initial set up procedure of your refrigerator. (They will also need your model number) Go to http://www.maytag.com and register your appliance before making the call.
1 (800) 344-1274 U.S.
1 (800) 688-2002 Canada

Before making the call check out this information about troubleshooting:
http://maytag.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/110/kw/Water/session/L3RpbWUvMTI5ODY4MTEyNi9zaWQvam9CYWV5bms%3D

- After connecting the refrigerator to water source or replacing the water filter, flush the water system. Use a sturdy container to depress and hold the water dispenser lever for 5 seconds, then release it for 5 seconds. Repeat until water begins to flow. Once water begins to flow, continue to press and release the dispenser bar (5 seconds on, 5 seconds off) until a total of 3 gal. (12 L) has been dispensed. This will flush air from the filter and water dispensing system, and prepare the water filter for use. Additional flushing may be required in some households. As air is cleared from the system water may spurt out of the dispenser.
- Make sure the dispenser is not locked. Some models have a lock feature that deactivates the dispenser levers and control buttons. The lock button is on the dispenser front cover. This feature controls unintentional dispensing during cleaning. Press the Unlock or Locked button to reactivate the dispenser levers and allow dispenser function. You may need to hold the button for 2 to 3 seconds.
- If there has been a recent power outage or the power supply has been off for more than one hour, the power outage indicator (on some models) will disable the dispenser function. The dispenser display will read "PF" to indicate power failure. To use the dispenser, press and hold the "Reset" button for 3 seconds until you hear the beeps.

-A clogged or incorrectly installed water filter will reduce the water flow to the water dispenser. Check for a problem with the filter by removing the filter and operating the dispenser. If water begins to flow, then the filter is either clogged or incorrectly installed. A clogged filter will need to be replaced.

If the filter is clogged and you are not able to immediately replace it, leave the filter out so the water system is in bypass mode. With the filter removed, the water system will continue to operate, bypassing the filter, and the clogged filter will not cause slow water dispensing. However, in order to have filtered water, you will need to install a new filter.
All Genuine Maytag Water Filters retain beneficial fluoride and are NSF Certified for drastically reducing chlorine taste and odor, particulates, lead, mercury and cysts.

To ensure glass after glass of clean, refreshing ice and water, change your filter yearly or whenever the system light indicates.

The information above should get your water working. If not please listen for a solenoid buzz as you actuate the water in door function. No buzz either the dispenser is locked off or.... you have a valid warranty claim.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

My water will not come out of the water despenser


start by checking the solenoid that supplies the dispenser to see if it is burned out. It is usually located in the back lower part of frig where the water inlet line hooks to. There are usually 2 solenoids.... the ice maker and the dispenser. Unplug the frig before testing these. The resistance across the ice maker and dispenser are usually the same. If the dispenser solenoid is "open" on the ohm meter then the whole water supply valve needs replaced. Another problem with some units where the dispenser is on the FREEZER side...the lines behind the door will freeze.

Well, there is no "motor" for the water dispenser, only a solenoid valve. However, there could still be a problem with the solenoid even if you do hear it when its energized. Hearing it make a noise does not mean its working properly.

I bought a used Jenn Air french door refrigerator model #JFC2089HES, but water will not dispense nor will it make ice. It's hooked up to a cold water supply under the sink which is working.


It sounds to me like you're going to have to do some serious electrical checking. There are two electrical solenoid water control valves right behind of the fiber cover where your water line connects to the refrigerator. One solenoid valve is for the water dispenser and the other is for the ice maker. They are mounted together, side by side, on the same metal mounting plate. You two sets of terminals on each solenoid. one set on each solenoid should be hot (register line voltage) when tested between the terminal and ground. the other set of terminals connect two the switches in the water dispenser and ice maker. If have someone push the dispenser switch while you have your ear close to the solenoids, you should hear a clicking sound. I have never seen both of the solenoid valves go bad at the same time. I believe you have a power supply problem to the solenoid assembly itself.

The fabric softner dispenser does not release the liquid softner


The fabric softener solenoid valve is faulty and must be replaced. It is sold as an assembly with the bleach solenoid valve with part number 997846. You need to remove the front panel to lift the top panel to inspect or replace the valves.

Front panel removal procedure:
  1. Unplug the machine.
  2. Turn off the water supply.
  3. Open the door and remove it by removing the screws on the hinges holding it.
  4. Remove the remaining two screws on the opposite side along the inside lip of the door opening.
  5. Press in on the outer upper edges of the front panel posts then twist it inward to release it from the clips on the face of the cabinet.
  6. Tilt the top of the front panel away from the washer and remove it.
  7. Remove the four screws holding the dispenser bezel to the top of the top panel.
  8. Remove the 5/16" hex head screws securing the two hold down brackets on the top panel.
  9. Swing the hold down brackets to the outside to unhook it from the slot in the top panel lip.
  10. Lift the front of the top panel and tilt it toward the rear of the machine.
  11. The dispenser valve assembly is the one on right of the water inlet valve assembly where the water supply line is attached to. The fabric softener dispenser valve is the one on the right most.
  12. Clean the terminals and the connector of the fabric softener dispenser valve.
  13. Grab a multimeter and check the resistance between its terminals. The resistance should be between 500 to 1000 ohms. If it reads open, replace the dispenser valve assembly.
  14. Remove the wire harness connections to the valve solenoids.
  15. Loosen and remove the hose clamps on the hoses.
  16. Loosen the valve mounting screws by turning it at least three full turns.
  17. Slide the valve assembly to the left and remove it from the bracket.
  18. Place a towel below the valve and remove the hoses.
  19. Install the new dispenser valve assembly in reverse order.
  20. Install the top panel, dispenser bezel, front panel and the door in reverse order of the removal procedure.

Maytag side by side fridge...water dispenser problem


If the water is visible in the front, more than likely the hose has become disconnected from the door, if you look at the lower left hand corner you should see the hose come from underneath the machine and attach to the door via a plastic quick connect, it is just a push lock connection. You may have to pull of the toe kick and the left hand end cap depending on the model to see this.

Ge gsl25jfrfbs water disoenser not working


Solenoid or the dispenser switch.

The water supply line connects to a water valve on the Ref. this water valve has two solenoids, one for the ice maker and one for the water in the door. Check this solenoid with an OHM meter.

The dispenser switch should send 110 volts to the solenoid. Check at the solenoid while pushing the water switch in the door.
