Question about Maytag MFI2568AE Side by Side French Door Refrigerator

1 Answer


I purchased a Maytag H20 fridge just 14 months ago for 2500 and now the darned thing is on the fritz. The water/ice dispenser is wildly lighting up and continuously opening and closing. The thing is possessed. I'm reading the same problem with other people is occurring. Is there any recourse? I bought this thing  thinking I was buying the best and it was going to last a long time. It sounds like there is a manufacturer flaw thats occurring just after the warranty is expiring and the owner is sol. This is not right and Maytag or whoever is there parent company should make it right. Do I eat the cost of repair or should I just buy a replacement.

The control board on the back of the fridge needs to be replaced. Call the customer service # in your manual. They have been making concessions for this problem.

I have a maytag dual cool side by side fridge, recently the ice maker has reduced ice production and the ice cubes are not fully formed ( Almost hollow). When you use the water despenser it makes a...

It sounds like you have a water flow problem. I would inspect the unit for ice building up in or around the freezer fan motor. If the ice is forming in side the freezer, the trouble could the a restriction in the fill tube. But this does not affect the water dispenser. The noise you hear could be the water line moving when water flows through the line, or your water valve itself could be the problem, like the valve shutters when in use.
The valve is easy to check, its located behind the unit in the back left corner. Remove the screw holding the valve in place, while dispensing water hold the valve and see if the issue is only the valve. If the valve is the issue this could cause both problems you have. Part number 67005154
Water Valve

Water/ ice issue

this problem is either low water pressure or a faulty water inlet valve. if u have good pressure, change the valve.

Ice and water don't work

This could be several reasons, water valve on back not working, thermostat in ice tray not working, heating element below ice maker not working, we just need to start with the dual water valve on back first. The side that feeds the ice maker needs the solenoid checked. I am ready to help you solve this, Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

My fridge is a side by side whirlpool, and it has a water despenser. The water despenser and ice maker isn't flowing, there is no water, no ice. Im not sure the model #.

check your water supply is ok and replace your water filter if it has one this should solve you problem if not then its poss you have bad water solenoids but not likely. peyton

No water

two things may have happened, first the o-ring washer on the pipe tap may have shrunk and restricting the flow of water, second the filter for the machine may be plugged up and need changing. good luck and if yoiu still need assistance feell free to ask againd

My new Whirlpool Refrigerator the water and ice still stink

We have the same problem. Started 2 weeks after purchase. (6 months ago). Tech. replaced fliter, worked for another 2 weeks, then water & ice awful again. Tried to live w/ it - ordered another filter a week ago. Replaced & within 24 hrs. problem was back. Called Whirlpool. Said tech who came to my househad written in his report that tap water & fridge water tasted the same. A lie - he agreed w/ me that the water from fridge was bad, & replaced filter which had a musty odor. Whirlpool basically called me a liar but agreed to send another tech to check it out. I will never buy another Whirlpool product & plan to tak this problem as far as I need to in order to get satisfaction. This is ridiculous!
