OK, The most likely reason is the water control valve is defective for the ice maker or the ice maker thermostat is not working and will not tell the control valve to open for water. If ice is just sitting in the ice maker and it will not cycle then I believe the ice maker may be the problem. Now if you could tell me the model number of your Maytag I can send you a manual and tell you the part numbers. Try this, if the ice maker is empty and turned on fill with tap water and allow to freeze. If the water freezes and then dumps I will know that the water valve is not working. If the water just freezes and sits there then again it is the ice maker. Problem is I'm not sure if yours is the mechanical ice maker or has a control board in the front. They just made too may different models. Let me know and I will check back and if you find the model number the service manual I will upload to you.

    If your dispenser is not working do you have any sounds coming from the dispenser controls? We may have a board gone bad on your dispenser door. Thanks, Sea Breeze 864-812-1887

My maytag refrigerator crushed ice will not switch back to cubes


Try replacing the ice bucket. That has the teeth and gears that crush the ice up. It could be stuck. If not then there's a solenoid in the back of the freezer that switches the ice bucket from cubed to crushed. You'll see the rod in the ice bucket slides into a square hole that moves up and down. That's it there.

My Maytag Fridge Ice Dispenser stuck on crushed ice, so no whole cubes can dispense. What can I do?


If you look at the bottom out side area of the ice cube bucket/auger assembly, you will see a metal rod going front to back. That is the shift rod for cubes/crushed ice. Make sure it is free. Then look at the back of the refrigerator where the end of that rod goes into a square hole. There is a magnetic solenoid in that hole that shifts the rod for selection. The solenoid coil is either bad, unplugged, or for some reason stuck and not shifting that rod. That's where the problems is located.

Maytag MSD2651KES delivers crushed ice but no cubed


There is an metal arm that extends out behind the ice bucket that moves up and down when you press the cubed/crushed ice buttons. You need to take the ice bucket out and check the hardware. It's possible that some ice has managed to form in the unit and are blocking the motion. Remove any ice and check if the arm moves freely when you press the buttons on the refrigerator. Similarly, you should check if there is ice blocking the forward and back motion of the plunger in the freezer that bar sits on. This plunger is right next to the auger motor.

Water and ice cube dispenser working fine, crushed ice not crushing. 26 cuft side by side model MZD266SHES


You have a solenoid switch which switches the dispenser back and forth from crushed to cube. It could be stuck or not working or the parts connecting it could be disconnected or broken. You will have to observe to see if any parts are moving and if any noise is coming from the solenoid. Crushed ice is the default position and the solenoid is energized to cube ice.
Remove the dispenser cover by gently prying starting at the bottom going round and round a little at a time to prevent from breaking it. When it's off the screws will be exposed to access the other components.

MAYTAG Model MSD2656KES: The refrigerator works


Sounds like the control module is u/s or the motor is u/s. Try switching off and on at the mains. If this does not cure it then you can try to unplug and plug back the ice motor, if you have access to it, if not call service engineer.

Not dispensing ice cubes, only crushed


Yup, do like I did. Clean the caddie of all ice cubes. Place a large water catching tray under the door, and run hot water from the inside where the the caddie holds the ice. You will see large chunks of ice that was freezing up your cube maker. After a couple of glasses of hot water pouring through the caddie, it will defrost and the frozen part will be released. Take off the caddie, and run water through it from your sink. Clearing all ice debris. Replace the caddie. Do not use for 24 hours, and it should run beautifully. Mine did that before it froze up and I cleaned it. You should probably take the caddie off every couple of months and run water through it to keep it clean of frozen debris, make sure its dried off well and put it back, wait overnight. and it should be ok.
This is what I did, hope it helps.

Ice Maker frost and freeze where ice drops into refrigerator door


You need a service guy to look at it. It could be water leaking or a simple case that the flap isnt sealing and the ice melts and then freezes the flap open

Ice dispenser only dispenses crushed ice


Check and make sure your switch is okay. Some have a switch that controls whether you want crushed or cubes. If it is defective replace it.
