Water leaking out of water filter connector Maytag MSD2657HEB

The water line in my fridge at my lake cottage froze when the temperature in the cottage got too low. I presume it cracked the connector, but I don't know how to release the water lines to get it out to replace it. I would also need the Part #. Any help would be appreciated. Thank You, Denny

    Thank You! I looked at all the diagrams, but didn't see the water filter like mine. It is the one in the upper right hand corner. I have it loose but don't know how to release the tubes running into it. Denny

My fridge just started running water from under,not just a Lil drip,I even have to shut the main water line off....what do I do now?.


My refrigerator did this when the fridge temperature control door got stuck open and froze everything in the refrigerator. I tracked down the problem to a connection in my water supply filter. I just removed the filter and spliced the line. I doubt the same thing happened to you but you can probably find the leak by tracing the water supply to the ice maker/water dispenser.

obviously a filter leak. the water shuts off when the filter is removed. either it wasn't installed properly or it has a bad gasket. as for the fridge getting warm, the water probably collected and froze to the evaporator coils and now resrticts the cold air flow. you need to turn off the fridge, empty it out, leave the freezer door open, and let the coils defrost on their own. or remove the back panel in the freezer and defrost the coils with a hair dryer. you will need to soak up some water, but not nearly as much. once it's defrosted, dry it out, close the doors and turn it on while it's empty. when it's cold enough, replace the food.

Refrigerator leaking water


This sounds like the water line from the icemaker and the cool water reservior inside the refridgerator side. The line is a rigid plastic hose and could be a leak at one point that is small enough to allow water to run along the line. Also sounds like you have a humidity problem. Check the door seals and wipe them off and apply a thin coat of die-electric grease to the seal. this will help keep it pliable and soft.
The water in the bottom leaks into a trough that is made into the fridge. This usaully evaporates, This is for the auto-defrost. It keeps the water from getting on the floor.
Check to see if the outer door gets hot at the edges. If not, It may not be auto-defrosting.
I would first check the water line first as this seems to be a more serious issue right now. The line is probably loose at one of the connections between the ice maker and water reservior.

Water leak at filter


I had this with a Kitchenaid Superba and wanted to get rid of the filter holder assembly entirely as I have an undersink unit which serves the fridge. I removed the plastic line (nut) at the back of the fridge (which led to the filter holder at the front) where the flexible copper tubing inserted (this was a 3/8' compression fitting-plastic) and also the returning line (1/4" copper compression nut on a plastic line) at the manifold (again in the back of the fridge) where it gets split between the water line and the ice line. I then just connected the 1/4" flexible copper directly to the manifold (1/4" nut, compression sleeve, male-male connector) using a pre-made 1/4" flexible compression line. Sounds complicated but after seeing how the water routes it was fairly quick work.

Fridge is leaking


Your plastic line which carries water to the dispenser has a crack in it.  Activate the dispenser and have another person pinpoint the lead and splice two pieces together with plastic connector.
