Trying to reset filer light after changing filter-locked up


Here is a link to the manual for your unit. Copy paste into your browser.

http://shop.amana.com/assets/pdfs/literature/12591321.PDF

Page 20 shows how to unlock the dispenser and reset the filter light and I have pasted them here.

There are products at Lowes or Home Depot near the appliance for odor removal, I like to put a bowl of cotton balls on a couple of shelves, soak the cotton in vanilla once a day. The odors will be gone in a couple of days.

DISPENSER LOCK

Filter reset

The filter status indicator light
serves as a reminder to replace the
water filter. A green light indicates that
the filter is in good condition. A red light
indicates the filter should be changed.
Once light turns red, it will remain red
until function is reset.
To reset indicator:
➢ Press and hold both DISPENSER
LOCK and WATER buttons
simultaneously for 4 seconds. The

I have a Maytag Plus side by side refrigerator, model # MSD2756GE*. It has the indoor ice/water dispenser. On the dispenser panel, there are a total of 6 buttons with LED indicators: Crush, Cube, Water,...


Normally you just need to hit the unlock button in for 10 seconds.

If this not works, here is what you need to do -

Note: If dispenser is active for more than five
minutes, an automatic lock out sensor will shut
down power to dispenser area.
Dispenser Lock/Unlock
The Dispenser Lock and Unlock affects all keypad functions.
To Lock Dispenser:
  • Press and hold the Lock/Unlock button for three
seconds. A green indicator light above the button will
illuminate when the dispenser is locked.
To Unlock Dispenser:
  • Hold the Lock/Unlock button for three seconds. The
green indicator light above will go out


Otherwise your refrigerator has a preset shut down program that protects the dispenser from flooding your kitchen. The control will shut down and will NOT reset when unplugged. The control needs to be reprogrammed. This mode was triggered by drawing out water for too long of a period of time. Call a Maytag service dealer.

NO ICE


Check this first,
Your dispenser can be turned off for easy cleaning or to prevent
unintentional dispensing by small children and pets.
NOTE: The lock feature does not shut off power to the product, to
the ice maker, or to the dispenser light. It simply deactivates the
ice and water dispensers. To turn off the ice maker, see “Ice
Maker & Storage Bin.”
 Press and hold LOCKOUT for 3 seconds to lock the
dispenser.
 Press and hold LOCKOUT a second time to unlock the dispenser.
Let me know if this helped, Sea Breeze

Ice maker not getting water after changing filter


Check the following:
 Is the freezer door closed completely?
 Is the ice storage bin installed correctly?
 Is there ice in the storage bin?
 Has the ice frozen in the storage bin?
 Is ice stuck in the delivery chute?
 Has the wrong ice been added to the storage bin? Use only
cubes produced by the current ice maker.
 Has the ice melted around the auger (metal spiral) in the
ice bucket?
Dump the ice cubes and clean the ice storage
bin.
 Is the ice dispenser stalling while dispensing “crushed”
ice?
Change the ice button from “crushed” to “cubed.” If
cubed ice dispenses correctly, depress the button for
“crushed” ice and begin dispensing again.
 Has the dispenser arm been held in too long? Ice will stop
dispensing when the arm is held in too long. Wait 3 minutes
for dispenser motor to reset before using again.

The ON/OFF switch is located on the top right side of the freezer
compartment.
To turn the ice maker on, slide the control to the ON (left) position.
To manually turn the ice maker off, slide the control to the OFF
(right) position.
NOTE: Your ice maker has an automatic shutoff. The ice maker
sensors will automatically stop ice production, but the control will
remain in the ON (left) position

REMEMBER:
 Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice. Discard the
first three batches of ice produced.
 The quality of your ice will be only as good as the quality of the
water supplied to your ice maker. Avoid connecting the ice
maker to a softened water supply. Water softener chemicals
(such as salt) can damage parts of the ice maker and lead to
poor quality ice. If a softened water supply cannot be avoided,
make sure the water softener is operating properly and is well
maintained

The Dispenser Lock (on some models)
Your dispenser can be turned off for easy cleaning or to prevent
unintentional dispensing by small children and pets.
NOTE: The lock feature does not shut off power to the product, to
the ice maker, or to the dispenser light. It simply deactivates the
dispenser levers. The ice and water dispensers will not work.
Style 1: Press the LOCK BUTTON to lock the dispenser. Press the
UNLOCK button to unlock the dispenser.
Style 2: Press and hold the LOCK OUT button to lock the
dispenser. Press and hold the LOCK OUT button a second time to
unlock the dispenser.

Ice Will not dispense


Check that 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.          http://whirlpool.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/whirlpool.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=110&p_created=1147725595&p_sid=lTIkCMOi&p_accessibility=0&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PSZwX2dyaWRzb3J0PSZwX3Jvd19jbnQ9MzEmcF9wcm9kcz0xOTkmcF9jYXRzPSZwX3B2PTEuMTk5JnBfY3Y9JnBfcGFnZT0xJnBfc2VhcmNoX3RleHQ9d2F0ZXIgZGlzcGVuc29y&p_li=&p_topview=1
