When I press the ice depenser lever nothing happens no noise at all and no ice in glass.


Your dispenser is probably broke. You should get someone to come repair it for you. I have had something similar happen to me before.

Water leaking from the freezer unit.


The drain hole is probably frozen over. When it goes into defrost mode every 10 hours or so, the evaporator heater removes the ice from the evaporator. There is a drain hole under the evaporator with a hose attached that goes down to a pan by the compressor fan where it is evaporated so as to not leak water on the floor. When it freezes over the drain, the water fills the bottom of the freezer until it comes out the door. A common fix to prevent the drain from freezing over is to take a bare copper 14 or 12 gauge wire and put a couple turns around the evaporator heater and stick the other end into the drain. This heats the wire enough to keep water from freezing b over the drain hole.

you need to check the flapper in the door where the ice comes out,, if you take the ice bin out look down in the hole where the ice comes out,, if it is not sealing good it will let warm air come up the chute and melt the ice,, if it is sealing good,, then you need to check and see if the water fill tube( the one that goes into the icemake) is not froze up or has asomething blocking it

Water keeps freezing


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. This seems to happen on certain models. The door insulaton may have detereated. Some parts places have a heater to add on to prevent this. I have heard of taping additional insulation inside the door to prevent this.

Maytag side by side refrigerator ice forms at the bottom of freez


Your drain is probably plugged. Remove the back panel in the freezer and keep squirting hot water down the drain hole with a turkey baster or something similar until it clears. The drain hole is located at the bottom of the coils in the freezer section. Your refrigerator goes into defrost every 8 to 10 hrs. When this happens, it melts the ice on the coils, which in turn, runs out the hole where the drain is. If something like algae is blocking or plugging the hole, it will plug up causing water to freeze over the hole. The water has nowhere to go but out the door.

Whirlpool ice dispenser not working


RECHECK THE CONNECTIONS AT THE UPPER DOOR HINGE WHERE THE ELECTRICAL WAS DISCONNECTED. MAKE SURE ALL THE PINS ARE STAYING IN THE PLUG WHEN YOU CONNECT THEM TOGETHER.
ALSO, BE SURE THE ICE BIN IS PROPERLY INSTALLED.
