Question about Maytag Refrigerators

1 Answer

Maytag Conquest side by side. We have water in the door but no ice. Ice maker no longer makes ice. It dumped it's last load but has not refilled with water. Water gets to the door but for whatever reason it is not refilling the cube bin therefore no ice.

    appears the celeniod is preventing the water from refilling the reservor. Another thing.... the infrared light blinks and is on but when you look for the infrared beam itself with black light it is not visiable. Could this be part of the issue??

    Thank you, the infrared light is working properly.

If you hold the paddel on the left side in and dont block the small hole the beam will be sent to the reciever on the right side
the light will not blink but stay on
make sure that the switch on the right side is in the on position
hold in the paddel light should be on and not blinking
if it is blinking replace the emitter and reciever part no 4389102

Why did the ice maker stopped making ice


You have two sides to the water control valve so look inside your ice maker and see if after the last ice harvest your ice maker refilled with water. If half full or empty try filling the ice maker with tap water up to the top of the the ice maker. If the ice maker dumps the ice after the water freezes then does not refill with water this will point to the WR57X10051 Dual Water Inlet Valve If the ice maker does nothing once filled with tap water will point to the WR30X10093 Ice Maker Assembly and will be better to repace. I will be here should you have more questions, Thanks Sea Breeze

Maytag freezer wont produce ice


You have two sides to the water control valve. One side is for the water coming from fountain and the second side is to refill your ice maker after each cycle of dumping ice into the ice bin. The freezer should be a 5 degrees or below for the ice maker to function properly. If the ice maker is empty then fill with tap water up to top edge of the ice maker and allow to freeze. If after the water freezes and dumps the ice into the ice bin the ice maker does not refill I would recommend replacing part=> 67006009 Dual Water Control Valve
or here=> 67006009 Dual Water Control Valve
If the ice maker has old ice inside and does not want to dump itself it will be considered defective and the ice maker core moduel will need be replaced=> W10190972 Ice Maker Assembly

We have a whirlpool gold conquest side by side refrigerator. Water dispenser works, ice does not. Stopped suddenly making any ice. How do we fix it? It's only 2 years old.


Is the freezer cold enough? Should be close to 10 degrees.
Is there water or ice in the ice mold? If not put water in it and see if it dumps the ice after it's frozen. If there is ice, lift the cut off arm and let it drop to see if it will start.
If it does dump the ice but don't refill with water.
ICE MAKER NOT GETTING WATER
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. It's on the back where the water supply comes in. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

A strainer before the inlet valve can also get stopped up restricting flow.

Ice maker not working


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . Also , check the black fill hose that fill the ice maker , to make sure it is not frozen . If the ice maker dumps the cubes , then replace the water inlet valve . If the ice maker holds the ice , and does not dump , replace the ice maker . When you open the freezer door , the laser light , should blink twice , then pause ,repeatedly . If you close the flap on the left side , the laser should go off . These are indication that the optics are good . If you open the door , and no laser light , then that means that the ice maker is in the harvest (dump) mode . If it stays this way , ice maker is bad .

Ice maker is inop. There is water to the door dispenser but not to the ice maker.


It’s more likely that your 61005626 Dual Outlet water control valve has become defective on the side that turns the water on for the ice maker. Sometimes the ice maker is the reason for this problem. The ice maker has a temperature thermostat that sometimes goes bad and will not tell the water control valve to come on after dumping the ice and the end of its cycle. The part number for the temperature thermostat is 627985 you can test the ice maker to see if the thermostat is bad by filling it with tap water and allowing the water to freeze. If after freezing the ice maker cycles and dumps the ice but does not refill with water then the water control valve needs to be replaced. Try that test and let me know what you find, Thanks, Sea Breeze

The ice maker quit working but I still get water from the door dispenser. It's a Maytag model MSD2456DEW


I know this is late but I will tell you that most times the water control valve on the rear of refrigerator is the reason for the ice maker not to refill. Yours uses a part number 61005626 dual water control. One side for dispenser and the other side for the ice maker. You may test the ice maker to insure that it works by filling with tap water. Let freeze and if it dumps the then ice maker will try to refill after each cycle. If the water control valve works it will refill. Let me know if you still need assistance. Thank You, Sea Breeze

Ice maker jambed-now no water


The ice maker must be re-primed with water to sense frozen ice in the tray, dump, and refill. Use a cup or glass to manually pour the water into the tray just below the top of the blades. It should freeze, dump, and refill.
