Question about Maytag MSD2454G Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

I changed the water filter but the water still comes out soooo slow.

My change filter light was on but the water was still coming out very slowly. So I changed the filter thinking it would make the water come out a lot faster. I changed the filter and the water is still coming out very slow. I takes almost a minute to fill a glass. How can i speed it up?

    I have the same problem! Changed the filter (it was time) and even unhooked the line from the back, as well as the connection in the front. Just to see if the lines were blocked.

    I am starting to think this is a normal problem with these Maytag PSD262LHEW models

It may be the water valve located on the back of the fridge. The way you can tell is to pull the water valve off and take the hose off on the refrigerator side of the valve. Hold a glass under it to catch any water and have someone push the water lever in the door. If you have good bad water pressure there, it's probably in the valve. If not, your water bin, or water hose in the fresh food section may have ice in the line and may be frozen up. If that's the case, you'll have to thaw it out and it should correct the problem, but it will most likely happen again sometime in the future. Please let me know if you have any other questions on this topic.

We replaced the water filter in our GE refrigerator (model #CFCP1NIXC) and now the water comes out VERY slowly. We let it run for a gallon and a half like it suggested. Now it's slower!

Maybe it was the wrong filter. Check that there are no foreign materials in the line or the filter attachment points. Also that you did not kink something.

Why is the water on my kenmore refrigerator coming out so slow?

I do not know the unit but it sounds like the water filter has plugged. Just replace the filter and the problem will go away. The ice maker can fill very slowly and you would not notice it.

Water dispenser side by side is slow

Check the dispenser tube to be sure it is not partially plugged by taking a piece of grass whip cord and pushing it up the out spout a few times. Then try the water output in a glass so you can inspect the water for calcium deposits... If this doesn't help, check the connections at the filter to be sure that there is no obstruction at the connection between the incoming water line and the filter...

Why water comes out slowly?

This can be caused by several problems. The most likely is that your filter needs to be changed. Another potential problem could be that your fresh food side is too cold. There is a water reservoir in the back of the fresh food side to chill the water, if it gets too cold ice could be forming inside it, slowing down the water flow.

Other things to check is water pressure going to the refrigerator, and finally the water valves located in the back of the refrigerator could be starting to fail.

Water comes very slowly from Kent RO faucet and to fridge.

If it has only been one year, check the warranty. Who said that it needed to be replaced? Oftentimes, a repairman can adjust the pressure to increase the outflow without needing to replace the whole unit.

I changed the filter for the water dispenser and after purging the water for awhile, the dispenser stopped working. What needs to be done to get the water dispenser to work again

Put the old filter back on , if water was fine . You never change filter just because a light comes on telling you to . The change filter light comes on after time or usage of dispensor .( Good way for manufacturers to make extra money ) . Change the filter only when water flow slows from dispensor .

Water is really slow

it was good before you changed that first filter? if so you probably got something in the line. from removing filter like part of oring or something and its now in your line from filter. try turning water off and break open water line before filter and see how well it poors there into a bucket or something and work your way down to the dispenser.
