I have a maytag side by side with water in the door, the cold water works but the icemaker doesn't. No water flow into the icemaker, it doesn't appear to be iced up. Can not tell if the selenoid works.

Hi, The fill tube that goes into the back of the ice maker must be plugged. Remove the ice maker and se if the tube has ice in it. If it does, use a hair dryer to melt the ice and you should be ok.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

I just changed the water filter and now the water will not dispense? I can hear what I think is the pump but no water?

After you changed the water filter and then you were to depress the front dispenser to get water the humming sound that you are hearing is the water inlter valve located at the rear of your machine. You would have to pull the unit out away from the wall to locate the valve. Before you do this did you with a empty cup depress the water lever on the door of the machine for about 3-4 minutes? When you remove the old filter you also take the water that is filled inside the filter out which when you plug in the new filter it will take a couple minutes of depressing the water lever to get the water to flow to the filter then it leaves the filter and goes to the water valve. When it goes into the water valve it then splits where one line carrys water to your icemaker and the other carrys water to the water dispenser on the door. If after the 3-4 minutes you dont have water pull the machine away from the wall and remove the line from the inlet valve that comes from the filter then have someone depress the lever on the front door which would tell you if you had water going past the filter. If you do have water going past the filter to the valve then you would disconnect the line that goes to the water dispenser and see if you can get water to flow out of that nozzle as well. If water is not flowing out of the valve then you would either try to clean the small screens which sometimes get clogged with calcium deposits or you would have to replace the water valve itself. If you have any further questions message me back. Thanks
p.s also if you have no water going to the ice maker you can remove the front cover on the ice maker and use a jumper wire and jump from L to V which would also activate the water valve immediatley

Hello Raymond,
In a most of cases if the filter were clogged it would affect BOTH the icemaker and the in door water dispenser,its never a bad idea to replace espically if they is a foul odor or taste in the ice or water. The water valve on the back is going to the most likely problem if the in door dispenser works yet the icemaker does not,a lot of times when the water valve is bad when its supposed to be fully closed cutting all water flow into icemaker it stays open a wee bit allowing water to seep through it causing the hose that connects to it ,running up the back wall into the icemaker to freeze up at the top where the tube enters into the freezer,that tube needs to be thawed, and to prevent it from freezing in the future the water valve needs to be replaced.

Goodluck,i hope this helps you to fix your icemaker,

Icemaker makes shells. Outside is frozen but

Hollow cubes are caused by not having enough water in the ice mold. Fill it up manually by pouring water in it and see how the cubes turn out.
look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water. + is more water.

Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

There is a screen filter before the water inlet valve in the water line. It can get partially stopped up with sediment blocking water flow.

Icemaker continues to run water for several minutes

Change your icemaker module. It is getting stuck in the fill position. They are about 50 dollars or so and are held on with 3 screws normally.

Did the icemaker and water dispensor quit at the same time ? Your model has the 2 lines coming from the top ( filter ) behind the refrig . One line to the wall water line to filter and the other coming down to the water valve . Do you have the filter bypass piece that came with the refrig ? Use it to test . Remove the back panel . If both stopped at the same time , check the connector that the wires connect to . With 2 connectors on each solenoid , those 3 or 4 wires go to a seperate plug in . Check this plug in . If wireing seems ok , remove the larger tubing from the valve by pushing in on the white ring and pulling the tubing out at the same time . Press the water dispensor , and see if water comes out of the valve . If it does , (you said you disconnected the tubing below the freezer door and no water came out while activating the water dispensor ) then the tank at rhe bottom of the refrig section behind the crispers , is frozen . To thaw , use a hair dryer with the light bulbs in the refrig section , unscrewed slightly . This is only for the water dispensor . For the icemaker , disconnect the smaller tubing , while someone else , turns the icemaker on and off several times to see if the valve momentarily opens each time the icemaker is turned on and off . I think the water valve wiring plug , has something to do with this because I have never found a G E where both quit at the same time without it being that plug ( 2 times ).

Water flowing to the icemaker would not stop. It over flowed the

sounds like the water switch is stuckopen or the valve is. Is the water going to the icemaker or thru the door. If the icemaker is overflowing and doesnt shut off then unplug unit,still coming in change the valve. Not coming in then look at the switch.

No water for ice maker or at door

  1. Water comes from water pipe, usually with a shut off valve (open??).
  2. Fridge has a small filter (for sand etc.) at inlet. (not clogged??)
  3. Water travels to solenoid valve, and waits for request. (do you hear it click when water requested??)
  4. Water usually goes to a fine filter..(these fail (plug) quite regularly).
  5. Water goes through storage in back of cool section (Inside fridge- is it full of water?).
  6. Water goes to ice maker (door) on fill request.
  7. For Ice maker:
  8. ?? Is the power switch "on" (to icemaker)??
  9. ?? Is the full / stop filling paddle/bar up?
  10. ...ask me more questions
  11. In your case the solenoid valve or more commonly the filter need to be replaced
