Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
First off you need to make sure the freezer door is CLOSED and water filter is properly installed in the filter housing. Without a model number I can not tell you the exact location of the filter. There is a water lock out function of the water filter housing that will prevent proper water flow until the filter is installed correctly or removed completely. Also... there is a water tank / reservoir that has to be filled completely with water before you will see any water at the spigot. Please pass your model number so I can better assist you or call the Maytag Sercive Center so they can walk you through the initial set up procedure of your refrigerator. (They will also need your model number) Go to http://www.maytag.com
and register your appliance before making the call.

Before making the call check out this information about troubleshooting:
- After connecting the refrigerator to water
source or replacing the water
filter, flush the water
system. Use a sturdy container to depress and hold the water
dispenser lever for 5 seconds, then release it for 5 seconds. Repeat until water
begins to flow. Once water
begins to flow, continue to press and release the dispenser bar (5 seconds on, 5 seconds off) until a total of 3 gal. (12 L) has been dispensed. This will flush air from the filter and water
dispensing system, and prepare the water
filter for use. Additional flushing may be required in some households. As air is cleared from the system water
may spurt out of the dispenser.
- Make sure the dispenser is not locked
. Some models have a lock feature that deactivates the dispenser levers and control buttons. The lock button is on the dispenser front cover. This feature controls unintentional dispensing during cleaning. Press the Unlock or Locked button to reactivate the dispenser levers and allow dispenser function. You may need to hold the button for 2 to 3 seconds.
- If there has been a recent power outage or the power supply has been off for more than one hour, the power outage indicator (on some models) will disable the dispenser function. The dispenser display will read "PF" to indicate power failure. To use the dispenser, press and hold the "Reset" button for 3 seconds until you hear the beeps.
-A clogged or incorrectly installed water
filter will reduce the water
flow to the water
dispenser. Check for a problem with the filter by removing the filter and operating the dispenser. If water
begins to flow, then the filter is either clogged or incorrectly installed. A clogged filter will need to be replaced.
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.
