Re: Water won't dispense
Your water line may be frozen through the freezer door. Remove the kickpanel at the bottom and you will see a quick disconnect. remove it and shut the freezer door and call for water. if you have water to that point then you know the line is frozen. Only fix is to replace the door or let the ref thaw for 24 hrs. Hope this helps. MJ

IF YOU CHANGED THE FILTER AND GOT WATER OUT THE DISPENSOR AND HAD A RUSH OF AIR COME OUT OF THE LINE. YOU MAY HAVE GOT WATER UNDER THE DRIP TRAY. WATER WILL THEN COME AROUND AND APPEAR THAT THE DISPENSOR IS LEAKING. OR YOU MAY HAVE NOT PURGED ALL OF THE AIR. LET ME KNOW.
Some of the early models had a sphion ball at the dispenser water tube. When this design worked. it was supposed to sphion water back into the supply line after you stopped calling for water.It's recommended that after you replace the filter and or anytime the water lines are accessed, purge the system. Pull at least 1 gal of water from the dispenser to purge the air. Air in the lines will produce back pressure. This pressure not the same as the regulated line pressure, will continue to push water through to the dispenser and or icemaker. Depending on the model design of the unit, the ice maker may be tricky to purge. Ther are several styles, with the ice bin in the door as trickyest.
You models has a tubing coil as a water tank. Once you changed the filter air bubbles remained in the system. Slow leaks or drips from the water dispenser can be the result of air trapped in the water line and will usually occur just after replacing a water filter. When the filter is changed, a large amount of air enters the system and needs to be removed by running water from the dispenser until all the air pockets are gone. Another reason is the water valve itself may not be sealing when closed allowing water pressure from the supply like to work its way into the dispenser water line. This is a less likely reason, but you should be aware of this possibility when diagnosing your own problem. Thanks, Sea Breeze
There are two possibilities. The water control valve is leaking while off or the water has air bubbles in the supply line. If you just recently changed the water filter and the air has not been completely purged this will cause a drip until the air is out. You can also remove the water line at the control valve and see if it continues to flow. Just us care by unplugging refrigerator first. Be right back with part numbers, Sea Breeze
Our water dispenser will work for about half a glass then the pressure immediately stops and the water flow goes to a small stream. Maytag MDZ2667HES Wide by Side. HELP! Filter was changed approx 3 months ago.
When you try the water dispenser you should hear the water inlet valve which is on the back where the water supply comes in. If you do hear it then Your water line could be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line under the unit before it goes into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if it comes out there. If it does leave the door open till it thaws. If you don't hear the valve working the dispenser switch is bad.
If it was running before the filter change you need to purge the filter cartridge of the air in the lines. Also check voltage on the back on the water control valves . While someone presses dispenser you should get 120volts AC on the plug receptacle side for the dispenser . Let me know what you find, Sea Breeze
Hi. This is normal and there is nothing wrong with your refrigerator. Whenever you replace the water filter on any refrigerator, you must run a couple gallons of water thru the water dispenser until all the air from the new water filter is out. Use a large container to do this. The water will not stop when you pull a cup away because the water valves used on refrigerators are so weak it will not close until it has pressure on both sides of it. If you don't get the air out, the air from your new water filter can go to the ice maker and stop ice production. So flush the air out of your new water filter. The water you are drinking from your drink dispenser may not be healthy. It may contain a small plastic floating substance. This is part of the plastic that the water tank is made of. The chemicals in the water do this. You will have this problem even with a new water filter because the water tank is after the water filter. You have to replace the Water Tank. The water tank is located in the refrigerator section on the bottom back wall. I sell low cost new designed Water Tanks on Ebay as username: themackshack. Good Luck, Mack
sounmds like you have air trapped in tothe line( formiong pressure behind the line whe nnot in use forcing water drops out, remove the crisper in the refrig campartmant and look for the holding tank either there an air bubble trapped in ther or you havea small leak allowing air inot the system, usually happen right after replacing the filter, instraed of trying to rnn 5 secs on 5 secs off, try with a bigger contaienr to allow constantly running for longer periods of time to hopefully force out the air bubble
