Question about Maytag Refrigerators

Open Question

I have a Maytag Performa side by side refrigerator, model number PSD262LHEW. When I change the water filter water flow drops to almost nothing. I have tried three filters (Pur # UKF8001). I let it run to get the air out but then after a few seconds water flow drops to almost a dribble. interesting is that is I remove the filter and install the filter bypass it flows like gangbusters! Any ideas?

SOURCE: Krups FME2 will not flow water.

Hi,
Does it sound like it is boiling water at all?

If it is boiling, but not giving hot water, then the one-way valve is stuck.
If it is not getting hot (on the soleplate base) then usually the element has blown.

These machines use the steam generated by boiling as a means to move the water up - like a geyser, and need the heat to move the water.

Replacement elements are available, and the valves usually just require cleaning.

SOURCE: Water won't flow from GE Smart Water under-sink RO water filter

Disconnect the water pressure tank making sure the end the line hooks up to is open. The tank should be relatively light, and if you shake it you should not hear any water. If you hear water in it, or it feels heavy, that means the bladder inside the tank has failed. Replace the tank with a new one, and set the pressure on the bicycle type valve at 8 PSI before you connect the tank up to the water line.

No on the air bleed out, probably so on the water line reversed suspicion

SOURCE: Water flow on my Maytag ICE20 is very slow.

The orifice into the filter is getting clogged. A toothpick or small paperclip will clear it.

SOURCE: Water dispenser slow flow after filter change

I had the same problem when switching to Pur filters. There are two curved wedges inside the end that hold the filter away from its connection. It turned out that they were just a little to short, putting the end of the filter to close to the connection, and that's all it took to restrict the water flow. I went to the hardware store and found a thin plastic washer that would add some space (it was for a faucet diverter of some kind, thinner than a dime). It added just enough space for good water flow. Another benefit was it helped stop the icemaker line from freezing. A simpler solution might be to make sure to get factory-original filters.

Side by side Maytag frig.dispenser water is slow. model MZD2665HEB I changed water filter .water flow is slower than normal.


When a water filter is replaced alot of air gets compressed in the plumbing and the filter which will cause a temporary reduction in the flow rate until the air is bled out through normal use.
