Water filter in fridge leaks

It's a Maytag side by side. Sometimes it seems the water filter in the top inside fridge freezes and then won't allow the water to flow from the dispenser. After the freezer goes into defrost mode it will thaw. Now since it has thawed the filter leaks where it connects. The connector has three O-rings they look OK. The filter looks OK too. But when I put the filter back on and turn on the water it drips. I have ordered a new filter. I haven't ordered O-rings. What do you think?

If the filter froze, its probably cracked the housing.

I have ice accumulation on the bottom shelf of my freeze of my Maytag side by side MSD2957DE. There seems to be water dripping down from the back inside panel. Is this something I can fix on my own


If you have an ice maker, or water dispenser turn off the water supply to the fridge temporarily, and see if the problem still exist. The solenoid water valves on some of these models accumulate mineral deposits and don't close completely after time, thereby leaking.

I have an Gallery series Fridgidaire side by side fridge, model number GLHS68EJSB0... the line to the water filter keeps freezing and unable to depense water... we have the setting on the fridge set to the...


We have the exact same problem. But ours is in a vacation home so we have to keep the water turned off all the time. It seems something in the ice line freezes when the fridge is empty. Then, no ice, no water. When we turn the water back on, after a few days of having food in the fridge, it seems to make everything melt and flood the tray then leak out onto the floor all day and night. The fridge temp goes down to 12 degrees when the fridge side is empty. It seems to stabilize when there are items inside. We put several gallons of water inside instead of leaving it empty and it helps with the temp but not with the leaking. We have had service come out several times and they just said, "don't leave it empty and turn off the water when you leave." What good is that? I don't have water or ice for the weekend when I go up to the house! OR I clean up floods the entire time!! Now it's out of warranty. Now that I see it happens to people in their main house, I would just say NEVER EVER EVER BUY FRIGIDAIRE AGAIN!

How do I change the water filter


Removing and replacing a water filter - upper right hand corner location

Filters situated in the upper right hand corner of the refrigerator compartment of Maytag-built side-by-side refrigerators are relatively simple to replace. Follow these steps:
  • These eight inch long filters are housed in their own compartment. The base of the compartment can be released by pushing in on the release clip found at the end of the housing unit. Allow the base of the housing compartment to hang down while you remove and replace your filter.


  • Twist the spent filter to the left (counter-clockwise) and gently pull on it to remove it. There is an automatic water shut off to keep leaks and spills to a minimum.


  • Remove the new filter from its packaging. Remove the plastic wrap, and peel off the aluminum topping. Insert the new filter into the housing unit. Twist the filter to the right (clockwise) until it clicks into place. Replace the base of the filter housing by cliping it back in place.


  • Condition the filter by dispensing several glasses of water through your refrigerator. This ensures that all fine carbon particles have been removed.


  • Check the filter and the inside of the refrigerator for leaks. If you find a leak, remove and install the filter again.


  • Finally, reset the 'change filter' indicator light, if your refrigerator has one, at the front of your refrigerator. The procedure for resetting the change filter indicator light can vary from fridge to fridge. Typically, the indicator light can be reset by holding down on the 'lock' button and the 'water' button simultaneously for three seconds. Sometimes, it is the 'lock' and the 'light' button you need to press down on simultaneously for three seconds in order to reset the filter indicator light.


Removing and replacing a water filter - center ceiling location

Filters situated in the center ceiling of the refrigerator compartment of Maytag-built side-by-side refrigerators are relatively simple to replace. Follow these steps:
  • Turn the filter a quarter turn to the left, in a counter-clockwise motion. The 'unlocked' symbol on the filter will be lined up with the indicator line that is molded into the refrigerator just above the filter. Allow the ears of the cartridge to disengage from the filter holder.


  • Gently pull down on the filter, being careful to not spill any water still in the filter. Discard the used filter.


  • Remove the new filter from its packaging. Remove and discard the red plastic cap found on the top of the new filter.


  • Apply the appropriate month sticker to the filter to remind your self to remove and replace the filter in six months' time.


  • Insert the new filter into the filter opening. Line the 'unlock' symbol on the filter up with the indicator line that is molded into the refrigerator above the filter. Turn the filter a quarter turn to the right, in a clockwise motion. You will be able to feel the filter stop when it is all the way in, and the 'locked' symbol on the filter will now be lined up with the indicator line above the filter.


  • Close the refrigerator door and dispense several glasses of water through the water dispenser in the door in order to purge the new filter of any impurities. Open the refrigerator door again and check for leaks. If you find a leak, remove and replace the new filter again.


  • Finally, reset the 'change filter' indicator light, if your refrigerator has one, at the front of your refrigerator. The procedure for resetting the change filter indicator light can vary from fridge to fridge. Typically, the indicator light can be reset by holding down on the 'lock' button and the 'water' button simultaneously for three seconds. Sometimes, it is the 'lock' and the 'light' button you need to press down on simultaneously for three seconds in order to reset the filter indicator light.

Our maytag side by side refrigerator is leaking from the freezer


Check the filter. See if its connected right. Sometimes the old (BAD-need replacement) filter back pressure the water and if the seal or gasket is not good enough, you will have water leak. But in this case you will notice the water path inside the fridge too.

Refrigerator leaking water


This sounds like the water line from the icemaker and the cool water reservior inside the refridgerator side. The line is a rigid plastic hose and could be a leak at one point that is small enough to allow water to run along the line. Also sounds like you have a humidity problem. Check the door seals and wipe them off and apply a thin coat of die-electric grease to the seal. this will help keep it pliable and soft.
The water in the bottom leaks into a trough that is made into the fridge. This usaully evaporates, This is for the auto-defrost. It keeps the water from getting on the floor.
Check to see if the outer door gets hot at the edges. If not, It may not be auto-defrosting.
I would first check the water line first as this seems to be a more serious issue right now. The line is probably loose at one of the connections between the ice maker and water reservior.

Where is the water filter located on a Maytag side by side? Model number PSD243LGRW.


Look in the refrigerator side. top left, there's a round plastic "tube" device with a lever to push in and the whole unit will pivot down from the back of the fridge.

easy to replace. Expect a couple of tablespoons of water to leak out when you remove the filter, but the cover seems to catch that just fine where you can blot it up.

Easy to do.
