Bought a new Maytag side by side. Will not put out water. Tried the 5 sec on and 5sec off to flush the air out, still didn't work. What next?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
First off you need to make sure the freezer door is CLOSED and water filter is properly installed in the filter housing. Without a model number I can not tell you the exact location of the filter. There is a water lock out function of the water filter housing that will prevent proper water flow until the filter is installed correctly or removed completely. Also... there is a water tank / reservoir that has to be filled completely with water before you will see any water at the spigot. Please pass your model number so I can better assist you or call the Maytag Sercive Center so they can walk you through the initial set up procedure of your refrigerator. (They will also need your model number) Go to http://www.maytag.com and register your appliance before making the call.
1 (800) 344-1274 U.S.
1 (800) 688-2002 Canada

Before making the call check out this information about troubleshooting:
http://maytag.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/110/kw/Water/session/L3RpbWUvMTI5ODY4MTEyNi9zaWQvam9CYWV5bms%3D

- After connecting the refrigerator to water source or replacing the water filter, flush the water system. Use a sturdy container to depress and hold the water dispenser lever for 5 seconds, then release it for 5 seconds. Repeat until water begins to flow. Once water begins to flow, continue to press and release the dispenser bar (5 seconds on, 5 seconds off) until a total of 3 gal. (12 L) has been dispensed. This will flush air from the filter and water dispensing system, and prepare the water filter for use. Additional flushing may be required in some households. As air is cleared from the system water may spurt out of the dispenser.
- Make sure the dispenser is not locked. Some models have a lock feature that deactivates the dispenser levers and control buttons. The lock button is on the dispenser front cover. This feature controls unintentional dispensing during cleaning. Press the Unlock or Locked button to reactivate the dispenser levers and allow dispenser function. You may need to hold the button for 2 to 3 seconds.
- If there has been a recent power outage or the power supply has been off for more than one hour, the power outage indicator (on some models) will disable the dispenser function. The dispenser display will read "PF" to indicate power failure. To use the dispenser, press and hold the "Reset" button for 3 seconds until you hear the beeps.

-A clogged or incorrectly installed water filter will reduce the water flow to the water dispenser. Check for a problem with the filter by removing the filter and operating the dispenser. If water begins to flow, then the filter is either clogged or incorrectly installed. A clogged filter will need to be replaced.

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.

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.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Unpluged the panel from ice maker . when i repluged it with the power on it start bringging ice out automaticly. now water dispener does no work . Is this an elctronic problem?


Check temp setting. Freezer temp in between -14 and +8*F. And fridge temp must be in between 38* and 46*F.
Make sure the dispenser is notlocked. Some models have a lock feature that deactivates the dispenser andcontrol buttons. The lock button is located on the dispenser front cover.This feature controls unintentional dispensing. Press the"Unlock" or "Locked" button to reactivate the dispenser andallow dispenser function. You may need to hold the button for2 to 3 seconds. A clogged or incorrectly installedwater filter will reduce the water flow to the water dispenser. Check for aproblem with the filter by removing the filter and operating the dispenser. Ifwater begins to flow, then the filter is either clogged or incorrectlyinstalled. A clogged filter will need to be replaced.


Thanks. Helpful?

If this is a new purchase, you will have to depress the water dispenser lever long enough for the water to make it all the way through the system, including the water tank located inside the fresh food compartment.

Thinking about getting a fridge with a water dispenser - do I need to have a conection to a water pipe


Yes, With a water dispenser or even an ice maker you need to connect to a cold water pipe. The connection is a simple "saddle valve" which clamps over your water line and then you screw a sharp piercing point into the water line. After peircing the water line you back the point back out to let the water flow. A 1/4" tubing either plastic or copper will go from the valve to the back of the refrigerator. The tubing hooks to the back of the refrigerator with a simple slip or compression fitting.
You can run the tubing for long distances if you need to but usually in a kitchen area it is not too far to find a water pipe.
So go ahead and buy that fridge that you want, knowing that the hookup will be a simple easy, procedure!!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

I have a Maytag Plus side by side refrigerator, model # MSD2756GE*. It has the indoor ice/water dispenser. On the dispenser panel, there are a total of 6 buttons with LED indicators: Crush, Cube, Water,...


Normally you just need to hit the unlock button in for 10 seconds.

If this not works, here is what you need to do -

Note: If dispenser is active for more than five
minutes, an automatic lock out sensor will shut
down power to dispenser area.
Dispenser Lock/Unlock
The Dispenser Lock and Unlock affects all keypad functions.
To Lock Dispenser:
  • Press and hold the Lock/Unlock button for three
seconds. A green indicator light above the button will
illuminate when the dispenser is locked.
To Unlock Dispenser:
  • Hold the Lock/Unlock button for three seconds. The
green indicator light above will go out


Otherwise your refrigerator has a preset shut down program that protects the dispenser from flooding your kitchen. The control will shut down and will NOT reset when unplugged. The control needs to be reprogrammed. This mode was triggered by drawing out water for too long of a period of time. Call a Maytag service dealer.

My hotpoint waher/dryer leaves water in the dispenser drawer after every wash any ideas please?


Check to see if the unit is level, as the unit should be level front to back and side to side. If installed in a home, you'll need to check the manual for proper procedure to level and lock the leveling legs at the front and rear of the bottom of the machine. I find that having the front of the washer just slightly higher than the back of the unit is best for keeping the dispenser from retaining any water and liquids, but, again, check the owner's manual for their recommended leveling procedure.

If this is in an RV, then you'll likely need to confirm that your RV is actually level, consult your RV manual for procedure on how to verify proper leveling .
