I have a Maytag MSD2356AE.The problem however is that the water and ice dispenser are not working in the door. I do not have any lights either, so I assume it is some sort of an electrical problem.

SOURCE: ice and water dispenser not working but light on constantly

CM, there are 2 things that'd cause this. One is inexpensive, the other is not. First, check the cheap one... That rectangular rubber piece in back of your dispenser area is only a cover for a cantilever device. When you push in on this with a cup, the cantilever swivels back toward you and makes contact with a micro-switch. This switch sends power to the integrated circuit board which, in turn, performs the function you requested (cubed, crushed, water). OK... unplug your fridge. Then use your ears to diagnose this. Push the actuator pad several times in and out and listen for the tell-tale "click click" of the micro-switch. If you hear it clicking, it's good. Plug your fridge back in. Now for the expensive part. If your micro-switch clicks, your dispenser control board is fried and needs to be replaced. (I'm afraid that this is the case because the board controls the light as well as all the other functions.) UNPLUG YOUR FRIDGE BEFORE REPAIRING! To gain access the board, use a small flat blade screwdriver and remove the fascia panel starting at the bottom first. Just begin prying it gently off. Then remove the screws that are holding the board assy in place and gently pull it out. Take note of all of the wiring so you can re-install it correctly. The board number you need is #61005274. Unfortunately, it lists for about $100. A professional repairman would charge you over $200 for the repair, so you're actually saving money here! BTW, we recommend using a Belkin Surge protector for all appliances that utilize electronic controls. (you wouldn't plug you computer directly into a wall outlet, would you?) We regularly use these... http://www.acehardwareoutlet.com/(a1q3xi45sxgfbzm0qejhei55)/ProductDetails.aspx?SKU=3115672

I have a Matag MSD2458GE refrigerator. Water dispenser on the door works but, the ice maker doesn't work at all. Seems no water reaching it. Needs new filter, but no ice before replace filter light.


According to your user's manual, "If water flow to the ice maker or dispenser decidedly decreases or if an objectionable taste or
odor returns,change the filter sooner than
recommended."
"Leave the refrigerator door open while removing and installing filters or plugs; this will prevent water
from flowing through the system and running into
the fresh food compartment.
• A newly installed water filter cartridge may cause
water to temporarily spurt from the dispenser"
Automatic ice maker not operating
the stop arm in OFF (up) position
•the water supply turned off
•the water pressure too low
•the freezer too warm
Ice dispenser not operating
ice jam in the dispenser

• lock switch on (see page 11)

How to change the light bulb in the outside ice/water dispenser



Question about Maytag 22.6 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator with PuriClean II Ice and Water
1 Answer
The light on the outside door (where the ice/water dispenser is) won't turn off. It is dimmer than when you hit the 'light' button, but it stays on constantly when the door is shut. The 'light' button works and turns the bulb brighter, but when you turn it off, it just dims and doesn't go out. The light shuts off when the door is open and turns back on when its closed. Model Number MSD2456GEB

Re: The light on the outside door (where the ice/water...

Hi
Reprogramming your refrigerator to only light up when the dispenser is in use saves energy and keepsyour house darker at night. The light is controlled using the buttons above the water dispenser mechanism.Press and hold the "Lock" or "Lock Controls" button for three seconds to activate the controls if they currently are locked.Tap the "Light" button to switch off the light.Press and hold the "Lock" button for another three seconds to lock the controls from further changes. The light now only comes on when the dispenser is active.
If the above procedure won't work then this will be the cause of a faulty switch. This light switch is an integrated part of the dispenser control circuit board. This will require you, or your service tech to replace the entire dispenser/ice maker control board. It will be located just behind the dispenser fascia, mounted on a bracket. the actual light switch circuit is mounted on this board.
Try this procedure:-
Shutdown the unit for five minutes. Simply unplug the unit for this length of time. This will reset the board, and possibly, fix this fault if it is not to severe. If the shutdown dose not correct the switch action, simply replace the dispenser/switch control circuit board.
Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.

Maytag mfi2568aes control panel


If the refrigerator water dispenser is not working the water supply tube in the door may be frozen. This will be difficult to track down. Look for a connection point at the bottom or top of the door, try removing the hose and blowing air through it and out the dispenser. Next it could be the water valve that sometimes has twin valves for ice and water combined, third is low pressure into the line (bad main valve) or clogged filter... you need about 20psi for function. Last is the door switch, when the freezer door is opened the freezer door switch does two things, it turns on the light in the freezer and turns off the ice and water dispenser. If the door switch fails the dispenser will not turn on. The switch can be checked for continuity with an Ohm meter. If it doesn't have continuity it should be replaced.

My Maytag msd2556ae will not dispense water throught the door. It makes ice just fine, and will dispense ice through the door, but not water. I've replaced the filter in the fridge, but no change.


There could be a blockage of its iced up. A complete defrost might fix it.
you'll have to leave it switched off with the doors open for 24 hrs.

You will have to call Maytag at 1-800-688-9900...Motherboard is bad. You can pull out the little plate at the bottom of the water/ice dispenser, then unscrew the two screw. Pull on the bottom and the panel should come out. Unplug the white connector on the left. This will stop the flapping of the ice dispenser flap.
