Question about Maytag Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a Maytag Model #PSD262LHEB refrigerator and the water comes out well and then it makes a purr noise and starts coming out very slow and thin. I've changed the filter as per the Manual and nothing. Take off the filter and put original tap and water comes out well...put back the new filter and it starts well and then slow. Could this be due a a problem with a relay going to the filter or does it necessarily have to be the water valve that has to be replaced...please help!

1) Can you turn up the water pressure with a valve that might control the water connected to the fridge?
2) If there is a plastic water supply tube in back of the fridge you may want to disconnect it and see if there is ample water going through or try replacing it to see if it may be the problem.

    Pull the fridge away from the wall. See if there is a plastic flexible tubing that attaches to the back of the refrigerator and supplies it with water. Disconnect it from the fridge and place it into a bucket. This will show you how much water is getting to the refrigerator. If very little comes out of the hose then it is not the refrigerator but the amount water entering it. Then you will have to replace the tubing or somehow increase the water pressure.

SOURCE: slow water flow on Whirlpool Gold 25.6 cubic

The water line tap may be screwed back into the water line or you did not sufficiently poke a hole into the water line with the tap. We had the same problem. Shut off the water supply, remove the tap from the line and check the size of the hole. my bet is the hole is very small. Either drill out the hole with a drill and replace the tap (with a new rubber grommet) or add a tee into the line with the proper size compression fitting (that is what we did) and the water will flow freely..

It could be as simple as a bit of expansion and contraction of the wall panels or the damper which allows cooling to flow from the freezer to the fridge side.

SOURCE: bad smelling water

The water lines are contaminated with bacteria and/or mold. This is a problem with many refrigerators. You need to turn off water and disconnect the feed line and filter. Mix 4 ounces of Clorox(R) in 1 gallon of water and pump it through with a NEW garden sprayer. You can remove the wand and clamp it onto the water inlet. Activate the dispenser while you pump the bleach through the system. Once bleach starts coming out the dispenser, vent the garden sprayer (de-pressurize), Let the bleach sit for 15-20 minutes. Re-attached water using a brand new filter (do not use the old filter and do not put bleach through filter). Run water until no chlorine odor (it can be a while). This process needs to be done at least once a year.

Refrigerator is louder when it turns on maytag performa side by side model psd262lheb

sometimes, as the machine starts to get a little age on them, the Freon flowing through the unit will get a little loud during the first minute or so of cycling on and for about a minute after unit cycles off. could make banging sounds, popping sounds even might sounds like water running or rain. All those sounds are normal operational sounds. I would not worry about those sounds unless you start to notice a slow temp. increase in the next few months. If you start to notice cooling issues, then I would start to get concerned about a sealed system issue.

Front door dispenser

Low water pressure will cause this symptom. Make sure you have a minimum of 35 pounds pressure supplying the refrigerator with water.
