Question about Maytag MSD2656G Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

The water dispenser takes about 90 seconds to fill a glass

How do I increase the speed or the volume of water flow coming out of the dispenser? It is both slow and hardly any water is coming out.

    I ordered the filter and replaced it yesterday. Same water flow problem. I pulled the fridge away from the wall to make sure all of the tubes were running free and they are. By this I mean they aren't pinched anywhere. Any more suggestions?



    Thanks!

Ice maker freezing up


The water line to your unit may need to be replaced. Check how fast water comes out of the dispenser. If it's trickling out or takes 30 seconds to fill the glass, you have poor water pressure to the unit and it's causing the fill tube to freeze.

Hi i have a double door samsung fridge and when i place dispensable ice on cube i still get crushed ice in addition is there any way to increase the speed at which water comes out the dispenser


There is likely a faulty solenoid which switches the ice dispenser between "crush" and "cube" mode.

The water pressure at the water dispenser is proportional to the supply line water pressure. Unless there is a restriction in the supply line or the dispenser line, the only way to increase the water flow is to increase the supply line water pressure -- not an easy proposition.

More info, let me know.

Water dispenser is not working


Does it make ice? If it makes Ice, then you have water to unit. If No Ice and No Water, check water supply. Otherwise, you could have a bad water valve. Remove valve and the line coming off of valve to water reservoir try to dispense water and if valve is good you should have water coming from valve. (have a bucket or bowl handy to catch water).

How to increase the water flow from water dispencer on a FLSC238DSO when getting water it takes for ever to fill a glass


If your fridge has a water filter, you should change it every 3 months. An old filter can cause slow flow problems.

But it will never come out as fast as the kitchen sink. Depending on the location of your fridge, you have 10 to 25 feet of 1/4" pipe between your water glass and the high-flow plumbing, and water just won't move very fast through that.

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.

Water Dispenser


does your refrig have a built in water filter? it may need replacing. if thats ok try checking your water supply to be sure that there isnt a kinked water line. if both of those check ok you may have a bad fill valve.

Water takes a while to start


put a 8oz glass upto the dispenser and start filling when the water starts the glass should be half full in 6 seconds if not the water pressure is to low if so you have a small leak some where in your tubing these are press and pull fittings usually and are located by following the line from under the door up under the ref.and back to the water inlet valve on the left rear of the machine hope this helps and good luck. oh if you have the type water valve that is up on the water line to your home make sure it is not on a plastic pipe because plastic piping will make a flap and restrict your flow

Water dispenser is extremely S L O W


check no ice build up in bottle but the most likely cause is poor water pressure on the inlet. no cure except to improve water pressure. if there is a valve in the input water line, check it is fully open
