Question about Maytag Refrigerators
Chnagedlimited hanged the filter and as I tried to dispense water (to flush out filter), water flow was less and less until it stopped. It starts again after I don't press the dispenser for a few seconds, but then it stops again. I opened the fridge and checked the water filter and it almost sounds like there it isn't on tight. I have taken the filter off and on a few times and even put the old one back on but the water flow is not changing. Pulled fridge to make sure hoses aren't kinked and I cant seem to get the water flowing.

If the water shutoff valve has a seal like a faucet instead of a saddle valve it's possible a piece of it has broken off and is partially blocking the water line to the fridge. Check the line to see if you can see it or disconnect the line at the inlet to see if the filter screen is plugged.

SOURCE: water dispenser wont shut off
Something from the filter went into the dispensor valve and is holding it open. You can try to backflush it with a can of air by disconnecting the filter pushing open the valve while holding the can straw tightly while discharging it. You could also backflush it with water.

SOURCE: Low flow from water dispenser
If there is a filter on the unit, change it. If not, then sounds like the screen is clogging up. You will need to pull the unit out and remove the water supply line and take off the adaptor to access the filter screen and clean it...

I had the same problem when switching to Pur filters. There are two curved wedges inside the end that hold the filter away from its connection. It turned out that they were just a little to short, putting the end of the filter to close to the connection, and that's all it took to restrict the water flow. I went to the hardware store and found a thin plastic washer that would add some space (it was for a faucet diverter of some kind, thinner than a dime). It added just enough space for good water flow. Another benefit was it helped stop the icemaker line from freezing. A simpler solution might be to make sure to get factory-original filters.

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.
about the filter:
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.
