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?

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.

I've just replaced the water filter and the flow rate on the water dispenser is as slow as it was before. I ran the dispenser to remove the air from the system so I know that is not the problem. The flow...

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. Most water flow problems that are common to both the ice maker and water dispenser are either a supply volume or filter problem. Since you already have replaced the filter that points directly to a supply volume problem. Water connections for refrigerators are often connected by using a saddle valve on the side of a water pipe. The saddle valves have a rubber gasket that is clamped to the side of the pipe to prevent leakage. The gasket over time can swell due to being clamped or plumbing debris can block the small hole that ports water to the refrigerator water supply.

Here is what I recommend. Disconnect the water line where it connects to the back of your unit. If you have the press in type connection (no visible fittings) at the water inlet valve I recommend you get a brass compression coupling and cut the plastic line vs pulling the plastic line out of the water valve. Install the coupling on the plastic line so you will have a connection to check the flow rate.
The incoming flow rate should be the same as the water dispenser flow rate. If the incoming flow rate is faster then the problem is with the refrigerator internal plastic tubing. Most of the time when this discrepancy appears it will be in the door hinge area that the tubing is flattened causing a restriction in water flow. Since you are having both ice maker and water dispenser problems... your problem most likely is strictly water supply line related. Correct the water supply problem.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Water flow of filter too slow

When was the last time you changed the water filter? If the filter is clogged from long usage it will slow down the water flow. Filters should be changed 6-12 months.

Ge profile refrigerator slow water dispenser

you have a seperate valve for ice maker and water dispenser, though it is possible both could have debris preventing proper water flow, i would check the water pressure you have going into the valve solenoid housing. turn off water to fridge, disconnect the line at the fridge, not in basement at saddle valve. place end of tube in bucket, turn on water. how is pressure? good or slow? if its good, then you probably do need to replace valve solenoid housing. You can NOT clear debris out of these, they must be replaced.
If your water pressure is still not good, either y ou have a kink in plastic water line. Despite having changed saddle valve in basement, if the stem of saddle valve is mounted on bottom half of pipe, debris from pipe is getting into water line and so on. You can reply here or send me a question from my website:

Water is flowing very slow from the dispenser on my GSS27RGMff Model

Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out of it and see if you have a slow drip. Try the dispenser to see if it's just drips after use.

Kitchen Aid Fridge KSRIZ6DSALYO Water no longer dispensing from door. Can a filter get too old and get clogged or should Iook at something else?

the filter can become clogged and restrict the water flow to the water dispenser and icemaker (i.e. water dispenses slow or small/hollow ice cubes). if the filter doesn't fix it then you either have a water supply problem or a faulty water valve. take the filter out and see if the water pressure increases out of the dispenser. if it does, you know its the filter. hope this helps.

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.

Water flow in dispenser in door is slow. I've had this refrigerator for 5 years and have not had problems until now. I just change the filter, and that did not correct the problem. There doesn't appear to...

Probably calcium build-up in the water valve. If you can get to the valve, see if you can take the water line off and put a little Calcium/Lime/Rust (CLR or a similar product) in it. If you've got one of those syringes like you inject spices into meat and turkey, that would do the trick. You might also try an eye-dropper. BE SURE to flush the line throughly after you put the tubing back together. For safety's sake, flush it twice as long as you think you have to.

That should do the trick. If not, you may want to remove the valve and see if there is a calcium build up there. It's the 'bottleneck' of the water flow system, and I'm betting that's where the blockage that's slowing the water flow is. Worst case scenerio, buy a new water valve.

Water is slow coming out from dispenser on a side by side Maytag

The water flows through the filter based upon the amount of debris already caught by the filter. Increasing the flow of water into the filter would not solve the problem. If you do not want to buy a new filter you can remove the present fiter and either operate without it oryou could put a larger filter in the supply line outside of the refrigerator.
