Question about Maytag MFI2266AE Side by Side Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator
I have a Maytag MFI2266AEU model. The water and ice dispenser is not working. It is locked after continuously dispensing water for 2 minutes. This model does not have a lock/unlock button. It does not automatically reset itself. It instead totally locks the keypad. (Happened before). Cannot find unlock code/sequence in any of the owners manuals!
Door Panel Locked
Press Door Alarm and Freezer "-" at the same time, then release Door Alarm but continue pressing Freezer "-". You will see PE _ _ _ _.
Press Freezer "-" until PE # # # # shows on the panel.
Using Freezer "+" to move cursor, Refrigerator "+" and "-" to change numbers, bring all numbers to "0". Press Freezer "-" until PE and numbers blink. Unplug refrigerator for 45 seconds, never beyond 1 minute or you'll have to start over.
Look inside refrigerator door and locate the serial sticker. To the right of the serial number is the CODE ####. Plug in your refrigerator.
Press Door Alarm and Freezer "-" at the same time, then release Door Alarm but continue to press Freezer "-". Using the same method as above, enter the four digit CODE number you found on the serial sticker. Press Freezer "-" until PE and numbers blink. You have just reset your panel. Unplug for 45 seconds. Plug in refrigerator and you should now have full use of your door panel.
This unit has a built in safety timer mechanism. If it dispenses water for two minutes, it assumes it is flooding your house and shuts the panel down. If you are filling a pitcher of water, just stop dispensing halfway through to reset the safety timer.

Directions ae great, but FYI - I was able to do this without unpugging. Yes, Model # MFI2266AEU.
I dislike this refrigerator immensely. It is not sturdy - I've had to replace several compnents in the refrigerator, and I see where more are cracking. The kids have knocked the handle off of the freezer twice - the last time it scratched the heck out of the bottom door/drawer. Now the freezer drawer came off of it's track, keeping the freezer from closing properly and causing it to frost. We had snow!
I was not able to re-fit the freezer drawer so we had to remove it and maybe someone handy will drop by and try.
The ice maker spits ice out all over when you try to dispense, and many glasses do not fit it well. We use a particular pitcher to collect ice and water and then pour it into our glasses. The ice maker has no additional settings, so you can not get crushed ice or slow the rate at which the ice dispenses. The ice maker will also drop ice cubes by itself at times, leaving lovely puddles on the floor.
I have never been so displeased with an appliance before. For the price tag, I believed we were getting a high quality product. WRONG!

If the filter is clogged and you are not able to immediately replace it, leave the filter out so the water system is in bypass mode. With the filter removed, the water system will continue to operate, bypassing the filter, and the clogged filter will not cause slow water dispensing. However, in order to have filtered water, you will need to install a new filter.
All Genuine Maytag Water Filters retain beneficial fluoride and are NSF Certified for drastically reducing chlorine taste and odor, particulates, lead, mercury and cysts.
To ensure glass after glass of clean, refreshing ice and water, change your filter yearly or whenever the system light indicates.
about the filter:
The information above should get your water working. If not please listen for a solenoid buzz as you actuate the water in door function. No buzz either the dispenser is locked off or.... you have a valid warranty claim.
