Check top right inside of frig. Filer is inside the housing; open door turn filter counter-clockwise, the housing should allow you to lower filter to change it out. Place new filter, turn clockwise, push back into place and close door.

I just replaced the water filter in my Maytag French door refrigerator (2 yrs old) and now the water/ice dispenser will not operate. All other functions on panel are fine (alarm, light, etc.). I tried to...


Hi, there is a micro-switch at the filter which shuts off the supply and operation while the filter is out of the unit. That switch is still open, so the dispenser thinks you are still replacing the filter. Try taking the filter out and putting it back in. Make sure any locking mechanism is fully engaged. In the meantime, I will see if I can find the service manual for your unit.

How do I change the water filter


Removing and replacing a water filter - upper right hand corner location

Filters situated in the upper right hand corner of the refrigerator compartment of Maytag-built side-by-side refrigerators are relatively simple to replace. Follow these steps:
  • These eight inch long filters are housed in their own compartment. The base of the compartment can be released by pushing in on the release clip found at the end of the housing unit. Allow the base of the housing compartment to hang down while you remove and replace your filter.


  • Twist the spent filter to the left (counter-clockwise) and gently pull on it to remove it. There is an automatic water shut off to keep leaks and spills to a minimum.


  • Remove the new filter from its packaging. Remove the plastic wrap, and peel off the aluminum topping. Insert the new filter into the housing unit. Twist the filter to the right (clockwise) until it clicks into place. Replace the base of the filter housing by cliping it back in place.


  • Condition the filter by dispensing several glasses of water through your refrigerator. This ensures that all fine carbon particles have been removed.


  • Check the filter and the inside of the refrigerator for leaks. If you find a leak, remove and install the filter again.


  • Finally, reset the 'change filter' indicator light, if your refrigerator has one, at the front of your refrigerator. The procedure for resetting the change filter indicator light can vary from fridge to fridge. Typically, the indicator light can be reset by holding down on the 'lock' button and the 'water' button simultaneously for three seconds. Sometimes, it is the 'lock' and the 'light' button you need to press down on simultaneously for three seconds in order to reset the filter indicator light.


Removing and replacing a water filter - center ceiling location

Filters situated in the center ceiling of the refrigerator compartment of Maytag-built side-by-side refrigerators are relatively simple to replace. Follow these steps:
  • Turn the filter a quarter turn to the left, in a counter-clockwise motion. The 'unlocked' symbol on the filter will be lined up with the indicator line that is molded into the refrigerator just above the filter. Allow the ears of the cartridge to disengage from the filter holder.


  • Gently pull down on the filter, being careful to not spill any water still in the filter. Discard the used filter.


  • Remove the new filter from its packaging. Remove and discard the red plastic cap found on the top of the new filter.


  • Apply the appropriate month sticker to the filter to remind your self to remove and replace the filter in six months' time.


  • Insert the new filter into the filter opening. Line the 'unlock' symbol on the filter up with the indicator line that is molded into the refrigerator above the filter. Turn the filter a quarter turn to the right, in a clockwise motion. You will be able to feel the filter stop when it is all the way in, and the 'locked' symbol on the filter will now be lined up with the indicator line above the filter.


  • Close the refrigerator door and dispense several glasses of water through the water dispenser in the door in order to purge the new filter of any impurities. Open the refrigerator door again and check for leaks. If you find a leak, remove and replace the new filter again.


  • Finally, reset the 'change filter' indicator light, if your refrigerator has one, at the front of your refrigerator. The procedure for resetting the change filter indicator light can vary from fridge to fridge. Typically, the indicator light can be reset by holding down on the 'lock' button and the 'water' button simultaneously for three seconds. Sometimes, it is the 'lock' and the 'light' button you need to press down on simultaneously for three seconds in order to reset the filter indicator light.

Bought this model used and the filter light will not go off after replacing the water filter. also it keeps developing a leak in the water line going to the refrigerator.


I had the same problem, it came with the new house. I downloaded the owner's manual here:
http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Maytagsx.pdf
The bottom of page 12 says hold the light & lock buttons for 3 seconds (my experience was 4-5 seconds) until the change filter light blinks. Then, let go and the light is off.

Water filter compartment leaking


If you have already replaced the filter and you can see the housing is still leaking, You have to replace the housing and water tank as an assembly (12956202). Make sure you verify it's the filter housing leaking, and not a fitting at the water valve which is right behind the plastic cover around and below the filter housing.

The water solinoid is not sending water to my ice tray


Had the same problem. As long as the ice machine is still moving, meaning its working but just no water is getting to the ice tray.  order part #2205762 valve, solenoid and change it out.  It is not hard to do if you pay attention to how you take the old one out.
