Don't be duped into thinking the display/dispenser board is the culprit. It may come a surprise, but this failure is often misdiagnosed. Because the dispenser is causing such a ruckus or because the display itself is blank or flickering, folks are led to believe that the display control board itself is the part that has failed. Looking at the history of our board evaluations, this little tiny control board rarely fails. And as crazy as it may seem, it is the main control board, aka the high voltage control of the fridge that is causing your refrigerator not to cool and the dispenser to be erratic.... This is the main control board of the refrigerator, located on the back of the unit. I've attached photos of what this main control board looks like. This main control board will need to be repaired to replaced.

There is a known problem with the HV control board on your model Maytag Ice2O French Door refrigerator. The cost of the repair is covered by Maytag. You must call your local Maytag shop to schedule a repair and also you, the owner, must call Maytag directly to have the HV Control Board shipped to you at no cost. When you receive the part, call your local Maytag shop to tell them that you have part on hand.

To stop the door cycling open and closed, reomve the hinge cover on the top left of the refrigerator. You should see the wiring and the wiring connector. Gently but firmly disconnect the connector and the LED display and the dispenser door should turn off. Of course, once the defective control board is replaced, the technicain should reconnect the wiring and check for proper operation.

Maytag mfi2568aes control panel


If the refrigerator water dispenser is not working the water supply tube in the door may be frozen. This will be difficult to track down. Look for a connection point at the bottom or top of the door, try removing the hose and blowing air through it and out the dispenser. Next it could be the water valve that sometimes has twin valves for ice and water combined, third is low pressure into the line (bad main valve) or clogged filter... you need about 20psi for function. Last is the door switch, when the freezer door is opened the freezer door switch does two things, it turns on the light in the freezer and turns off the ice and water dispenser. If the door switch fails the dispenser will not turn on. The switch can be checked for continuity with an Ohm meter. If it doesn't have continuity it should be replaced.

Maytag mfi2568aes makes continuous buzzing noise when water dispenser is depressed (sounds like is coming from rear of machine). Water comes out, but at a trickle. Ice is fine


From your description, the only thing I could think that MIGHT cause those types of indications is the dual water value. http://www.partselect.com/PS2069865-Whirlpool-67006322-Dual-Water-Valve.htm?SourceCode=1&ModelNum=MFI2568AES

IF you are sure that the ice maker fills NORMALLY. If it doesn't then I would suspect the filter.

Ice and water dispenser stopped working


Welcome to the computer world. When depressed, the paddle actuates a switch attached to the bracket above. The switch sends a low voltage signal to a small circuit board mouted right behind the display. A computer chip on that small board communicates with another chip on the main control board mounted in the rear wall. Your situation could be a bad actuator switch, a broken paddle tab, possibly a bad door switch (the fresh food doors must be closed to dispense), or a bad electronic control.

Ice maker is not working anymore. Water doesn't fill the tub. Water dispenser out of the door is still working


I need you to double check the model number. Maytag has a service library at this link. http://www.servicematters.com/maytag_library/html/index.html
By placing the first 3 letters in the search feature it will take you to models like yours. Chose the correct model that you have and enter the number in the search. I believe that the water control valve on back of your refrigerator is the problem. Maytag is very good about helping their customers. Let me know if you have problems gettting the information you need, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Dispenser


Sounds like a control fault on the microswitch to activate the ice and water line. Access to this is immediately behind the ice dispenser section (just above) on the freezer door. Normal access is two screws located behind the removal drip tray section. Either that or the control board for the ice dispenser as you are not getting water as well. Before taking this section apart though you should hear a buzzing sound when you activate the chilled water, if you do then you may have a water supply problem. Hope this helps.

perhaps there is ice holding it in because that tab is all that holds it.
