The filter for this unit is located in teh upper right hand corner of the refrig ceiling. there is a thumb latch on the cover release teh cover and you will expose the filter. turn the filter 1/4 turn counter clockwise to release. then reinstall new filter. be sure to run approx. 1/2 gallon of water thru the dispenser after replacing filter to purge air from the lines. 
p.s the icemaker and water disp will not work without the filter in place. Have a Great Day! peyton

I have a Maytag French Door Bottom Freezer / Refrigerator. Model MFI2568AEW. I changed the water filter today and 10 seconds after installing the new filter it started making a very loud noise like

Sounds like water hammer, has the water supply got it's own shut-off valve behind the fridge or in the basement ? Try shutting the valve then open it just a little. Perhaps the water supply was opened fully after installing the new filter.

Change water filter. now water is running slow. put old filter back in, still running slow. ICE2O

Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.The only thing that can cause slow water is low water pressure from the house line a bad filter or a frozen water line or tank. Most of the time its the house water supply it should be at least 35psi.

I have a Maytag MFI2568AEW refrig. and the ice maker is not filling up. I checked the dual water valve and it is not getting power to open the solenoid valve with the ice maker switch on and the ice bin...

On typical ice makers that signal comes from within the ice maker. It sends a signal from the ice makers thermostat and the ice maker begins to pre-heat the ice cube slots and the ice rake begins turning to push the ice out of the slot's and into the ice bin. The last function is to refill the water with a signal to the dual water control valve that last about 7.5 seconds. Once the ice maker senses the water is frozen again it begins this cycle again. Here is a refrigerator parts PDF for your model=> MFI2568AEW and on page 10 you will see part=> 627985 Pin Style Icemaker Thermostat
Adhesive - Alumilastic (Cement)
That is just silicone rubber you can also get locally. If you have any other questions please let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Filter needs changing

You don't need a plumber. The filter is located inside the fresh food section, in top-right corner. There is an elongated cover with a tab in front. Press the tab towards the back of the fridge slightly and pull the cover front down. There is your filter. No need to turn the water off either. Just twist the filter counterclockwise and it will pop off.
The part number of the filter is UKF8001, can be purchased in any appliance parts store, for example here. "New10"coupon takes 10% off.

Water filter compartment leaking

If you have already replaced the filter and you can see the housing is still leaking, You have to replace the housing and water tank as an assembly (12956202). Make sure you verify it's the filter housing leaking, and not a fitting at the water valve which is right behind the plastic cover around and below the filter housing.
