The housing probably has a crack in it. If thats not the problem check the seal where the cap screws in. If thats fine check the cap itself for cracks. Please rate if this is helpfull

    there is no crack in the housing , the water shoots out the white cap that's on the top part of the whole thing.

    Is the fridge still making ice? And when you try to get water does it still come out of the dispencer.

  • baoujessy Oct 07, 2010

    NO IT'S NOT MAKING ICE AND YES WATER COMES OUT OF THE DISPENCER BUT THE FLOW IS SLOW, NOT AS IT WAS BEFORE, i'VE TRIED EVERYTHING , IT'S DRIVING NUTS!

    Ok you either have a hose off or it's split. Looking at the back of the fridge you should see plastic hoses. Be sure to check that all hoses are connected to the fittings. Just push the hoses into their fittings, after you do that have someone try to get water and look closely at all the hoses and fittings. You should be able to identify the problem then.

  • baoujessy Oct 19, 2010

    i did check that all the hoses are in the fittings but when you push 4 water, there is a blue hose in the back of the fridge and nothing goes through i. I even unscrewed the back low part and checked the fittings of the hoses in there, they are all in place. what do u think i should do next?

If filter needs replaced, would that prevent water flow to door and ice maker


The filter is just about the only thing that can keep water from getting to the icemaker and water dispenser. It would be very rare for the water valve to cause this. I have had clogged filters and no water will come out. Try removing the filter shake the water out and put it back in. Sometimes water will shoot out for a moment. This will give you the confirmation that the filter is the problem.

How do you change the water filter on Maytag MF12568AES?


Check top right inside of frig. Filer is inside the housing; open door turn filter counter-clockwise, the housing should allow you to lower filter to change it out. Place new filter, turn clockwise, push back into place and close door.

Hello,

The first thing to do if you already haven't is replace the filter,it's in the grill/kickplate below the freezer door. If you have relpaced filter,need to pull refrig from wall and check that their is good water pressure from house plumbing,if it is good the water valve the sends water to icemaker&door dispenser when water is called for is going to be the problem.The part # for that valve is 4389177 it could be purchased at your local appliance parts store on oline at;
searspartsdirect.com
apdepot.com
repairclinic.com
assuredparts.com

The filter BUT NOT the water valve could be purchased locally at Sears,Lowe's or Home Depot

I hope this helps you to diagnose your icemaker/dispenser

Water filter compartment leaking


If you have already replaced the filter and you can see the housing is still leaking, You have to replace the housing and water tank as an assembly (12956202). Make sure you verify it's the filter housing leaking, and not a fitting at the water valve which is right behind the plastic cover around and below the filter housing.
