Water and Ice Dispenser not working

I have a Maytag MSD2356AEB side by side refrigerator and the unit is making ice and I can retrieve it by opening the door.

The problem however is that the water and ice dispenser are not working in the door. I do not have any lights either, so I assume it is some sort of an electrical problem.

The contact switch appears to be free as I can push on it where the glass typically makes contact. Before I try and pull this apart, I was wondering how difficult it would be to open up the dispenser to check for a loose connections or replace a board or fuse.

    Thanks for the advice, but the connector does not appear to be the issue.

    Does anyone know whether or not there is some sort of a fuse behind the dispenser?



    My guess is that I either have a loose connection, a fuse, or a bad ciruit board. My real question, is how difficult is it to take apart the dispenser unit to get to the possible meat of the problem/



    I could not find a downloadable repair manual to see how much fund taking this apart might be.



    Thanks to all that offer assistance.

    my icemaker is sending ice down the opening but the round door that lets it in the glass isn't opening. so the ice just builds up inside the canal.

Ice maker not making ice


The solenoid that lets water into the ice maker is not working. The ice maker itself can also cause a working solenoid to malfunction.

Ice maker will not work. Water is coming into the back of the refrigerator and water dispenses out of water dispenser. But no water will go to the ice maker.


Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. It’s on the back where the water supply comes in. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Water dispenser quit working


Make sure that the water filter is the right one and that it is pushed all the way in. If that is correct than There should be two solenoids located behind the fridge at the bottom one is for your ice and one for water. Unplug unit and test the water solenoid with an ohm meter across the two terminals if it ohms out or beeps than your solenoid is bad.

In door ice dispenser does not work but the water dispenser does.


check to make sure there is water or ice in your ice maker tray. If none then problem is usually a water supply issue to the ice maker. Behind the frig are the water supply inlet valves. One is for the water dispenser in the door. THe other is for the ice maker. However when one goes bad they both are replaced as one unit. Also Check position of fingers in ice maker. If not in a vertical position then try to reset the ice maker unit and worse comes to worse, replace it with a new one.
