Maytag 2561HES No water coming out of dispenser

I replaced the filter 4 months ago, everything has been working fine. It was dispensing water 2 days ago, today I went to get a glass of water and nothing is coming out. I took off the filter, it has water in it, but nothing comes out at the dispenser now.

The model is a french door with freezer on bottom, water dispenser is on the inside. It is making ice cubes just fine.

    Ya, I won't be able to check it out until tomorrow. I emptied the ice tray also just to make sure it is going to fill up. Also, the model is MFD2561HES. I appreciate the help and I'll post something more tomorrow after I find something out.

Most times that is the dual water control valve on rear of your refrigerator. Sometimes the switch in the door. Have someone pull the refrigerator away from wall and unplug the wires going to each side and ohm the coils. They should both show very close to the same amount of resistance. If you still have problems, let me know and make sure the model number has a prefix like MDO2561HES for example. That way I will be able to help you better. Thanks

    Thanks for your vote, hope you find the problem soon. You mentioned the ice maker is fine, but there are 2 valve on the back rear.If you unplug the side that goes to dispenser put you multi meter or ohm meter inside the plug while someone presses the water dispense control. Take care not to touch the probes on end meter. You should show 120 volts or depends where you are located also. Some countries the house hold voltage 240 and 50 cycle. Thank You, Sea Breeze

Water dispenser

First thing I would check is the solenoid valve. It's what the water line in the back is connected to. An easy way to test it is to remove the screws connecting the solenoid so it is loose from the refrigerator. Remove the 2 water lines going into the refrigerator from the solenoid, keeping the water line from your house still plugged into it. Get a bucket and while the open ends are pointed in the bucket have someone press the water dispenser lever on front. If it dispenses water into the bucket from one side it's good, if not, replace it. Please be careful of the wire harness that is connected to the solenoid. Any part of the bare metal on the contacts, when energized, carry120v and can shock you.
Hope that helps.

Ice and Water not dispensing. Light button not working
There's an ice- or water-dispensing problem The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs.

Ice dispenser has stopped working. purchased it 2 months ago .Unable to ;ocate the maytag manual Any advice? Awaiting re[ly

Good day,
If the machine is only 2 months old, all mechanical problems are covered for one year by the factory. Contact your selling dealer for a warranty call. I'm assuming there is ice in the dispensing bucket.

Try this... unplug frig and take everything out, leave the doors open as well. let everything thaw out for at least 2 days. then plug in and see if water comes out. what we are trying to do is make sure that the water hasn't frozen inside the door. i seen this happen and it drove me crazy. try this because i want to save you money from guessing whats wrong and buying parts. if the water comes back on then let me know and i will find the kit you need to stop this problem

ok if the water still doen't come out then make sure you have enough water pressure going to the frig.

another problem could be a plugged water filter, you can try to put a new one (every 6 months recommend) to see if this corrects the problem

take off the connector at the water valve and see if there is any debris

if all fails the only thing left is the water valve itself

hope this was helpful

When water dispenser is pushed the water supply line rattles and very little water comes out. The water supply line has good pressure and the ice maker works. I also changed the filter.

Our water dispenser will work for about half a glass then the pressure immediately stops and the water flow goes to a small stream. Maytag MDZ2667HES Wide by Side. HELP! Filter was changed approx 3 months ago.

Ge gsl25jfrfbs water disoenser not working

Solenoid or the dispenser switch.

The water supply line connects to a water valve on the Ref. this water valve has two solenoids, one for the ice maker and one for the water in the door. Check this solenoid with an OHM meter.

The dispenser switch should send 110 volts to the solenoid. Check at the solenoid while pushing the water switch in the door.

Water dispenser in my Maytag french door refer has suddenly stopped working. We use it every day and the filter seems to be fine. It almost sounds like it is frozen. Please Help!!!

We have a hd2560 (bot 10/04), french door with inside water dispenser and it had stopped working a year ago, but started working a few months later. I couldn't figure out what happened, but suspected the water line was frozen. I later found out that the water reservoir is located behind the fruit and vegetable bins, so look there to see if the water is frozen.

Two weeks ago, our frig/compressor stopped cooling after making humming/clicking sounds for weeks. Fortunately, Maytag has a 5 yr parts & labor warranty on the compressor, so we were covered. Evidently, there are quite a few faulty compressors out there.

I believe that the compressor had been over-cooling in the past and caused the water lines/tank to freeze. This would also cause frozen produce/fruit. I would immediately contact Maytag/Whirlpool if you suspect a faulty compressor as well.

its possible that your water tank has frozen up, try turning the refrig off and leave the doors open for about 10-15 mins and try it again. if that works just reset temp controls a little lower..
