Maytag mfd2561 water dispencer and ice maker issues

Posted by Texasguy on Sep 29, 2007Report abuse Hi all. I have MaytagMFD2561HES french door and water dispencer doesn't work. I replaced the filter(was year old) but it didn't work. I hear the motor running and when I replaced the filter water was running from the bottom of the freezer. But it was stopped after few mins. My ice dispencer doens't work, door alarm doesn't work and water filter and replace indicator doesn't work. Both freezer and refregerator works fine. Display shows correct temp, vacation mode, and other funtions work. I didn't use the fridge for year (used it for 8 months only) and any help would be appreciated.

    Hi the dr

    Thank you much for your quick response. Could you please explian how I could take the back cover and directions on how to reinstall control board etc?
    I forgot to tell you when I tried to use the water dispencer it leaked lots of water(crack on water filter). I left filter compartment open without installing blue cap for two weeks. Once I intalled the new water filter some water spilled out but then it stopped. I hear water dispencer moter trying and ice dispencer trying to make ice. I turned on speedy ice feature and freezer got really cold but didn't make any ice(at least I heard it was trying). Your input is appreciated.

    My water dispenser just stopped working. It filled up a glass went back
    a few minutes later & it would not dispense. This has happened
    before I never did find out what was wrong then all of a sudden it
    started working again. What is going on!

    The ice despencer is not working properly. The lid stay open.Is there a replacement part for the lid? Or should I replace the whole dispencer.

Most likely it is the High Voltage Control board located in the unit compartment (take off the back cover where the water lines are) i have had lots of them failing and doing all kinds of odd things, so far it has been that computer. Part number 12002608

Texas, sounds like your water reservoir is frozen up. Remove your 2 cripser drawers, you will see the reservoir behind them. Take a hair dryer and go over the tank and tubing ends. See if the water starts flowing. I find a lot of frozen water reservoirs on these french door models. They have a insulation kit for them. Catriver.
